Sales Joke of the Day (October 17) The Escape

Having gone to his executive assistant's apartment, the VP of Sales was astonished to wake up and find that it was 3;00AM.   "Darn!" he exploded.  "My wife will kill me!"

As he ran to his car, while throwing on his clothes and stepping into his leather loafers, he was struck with sudden inspiration.  So he called his wife from his cell phone.  

When he wife answered, he panted into the phone, "Darling, don't pay the ransom!   I've escaped!"

Moral of the story.   True sales professionals know that in order to succeed at sales they have to have the ability to think on their feet.   Having the ability to think on your feet at 3am, means that you have what it takes to make it at the upper levels of sales management.

"You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today."
