Sales Joke of the Day (January 12) Mexican Winter Getaway.

A history professor lays down on a reclining beach chair staring out at the gorgeous view of the Atlantic Ocean.   After a few minutes he asks the salesman laying on the beach chair beside him, "Have you read Marx?"

The salesman replied, "Yes, several.  I think they are from the wicker chairs."

Moral of the story.  True sales professionals know that in order to be successful at sales they need to be great conversationalists.   One way to be a great conversationalist is to be well read.  But you don't want to be red.  That would be considered political and some people might get offended.   Last, when sun bathing, don't forget to use a good sun screen.  If you don't you'll end up getting burned.

"A man who won't read has no advantage over one who can't read."      -  Mark Twain
