Sales Joke of the Day (December 2) Reincarnation.

It was Monday morning at the breakfast table and the salesman and his wife found themselves for some reason, talking about reincarnation.

"What exactly is reincarnation?" the salesman asked.

"It's when you die, you come back as something completely different, based on what you have done with your last life," his wife explained.

"So," the salesman suggested, "I could come back as a pig?"

The salesman's wife sighed wearily, "You're not listening to me at all, are you?"

Moral of the story.   True sales professionals know that in order to succeed at sales you need to be able to listen attentively and be a great conversationalist.  The last thing you need is for your customers and prospects to think that when it comes to simple conversation, you're nothing but a boar.
