Sales Joke of the Day (December 11) The Field.

A farm implements salesman was driving along a country road when he saw a farmer standing in the middle of a huge field.  The farmer wasn't doing anything and appeared to be staring blankly at nothing in particular.

"What are you doing?" called out the salesman.  He wanted to make sure the farmer was okay.

"I'm trying to win a Nobel Prize," replied the farmer.

"How are you going to accomplish that?" asked the salesman.

"Well," replied the farmer.  "I heard they give the Nobel Prize to people who are out standing in their field."

Moral of the story.    True sales professionals know that in order to be successful in sales, they do have to be outstanding in their field.   They also know that success will never come to those who are just out standing around.   Want to be outstanding in your field?   If you want to get somewhere or accomplish anything of consequence in life, you need to get moving.  In sales, you need to be speaking with prospects.   If they are not beating down your door to do business with you, you need to be going out to see them.   So what are you waiting for?   Pick up that phone and start booking some appointments today.
