Sales Joke of the Day (October 24) Unusual Talents.

During a job interview, the sales manager asked a female applicant whether she had any unusual talents.  

"Yes," the saleswoman responded.  "I have won several prizes for designing crossword puzzles and writing winning contest-winning slogans."

"That's all well and good," replied the sales manager.  "But we want someone who can be smart and successful during business hours."

"Oh," replied the saleswoman, "that was during business hours."

Moral of the story.     True sales professionals know that in order to succeed at business you need to make the most of your prime time hours when you're in the office.   Don't let your hobbies, special interests, or one might even argue paperwork, chew up your best time to contact prospects and customers.

"True happiness involves the full use of one's power and talents."   -   John W. Gardner
