Sales Joke of the Day (archives) The Betrayal

A salesman is complaining to a friend: “I had it all, money, a beautiful house, a nice car, a great motorcycle, the love of a beautiful woman. Then it was all gone!”

“What happened?” asks the friend.

“My wife found out!” replied the salesman.  "And all she could say was, "How could you 'petraeus' us like that?"

Moral of the story.   True sales professionals have morals.  They understand that their personal life is an indicator of their professional life and "vice" versa.  True sales professionals know that you can't put a price on your own credibility and once it's sold, there are no refunds or exchanges.

"Tragedy in life normally comes with betrayal and compromise, and trading on your integrity and not having dignity in life.  That's really when failure comes."        -     Tom Cochrane
