Sales Joke of the Day (January 16) The Mugging.

A salesman was jumped in an alley by three muggers.  He put up heroic resistance but was eventually overpowered.  When the attackers went through the salesman's pockets they didn't find much.

"You mean you fought like that for 48 cents?" said one mugger incredulously.

"Is that all you wanted?" replied the salesman, relieved.  "I thought you were after the $500 in my shoe!"

Moral of the story.   True sales professionals know that in order to be successful in sales, they need to master the ability of knowing, when to stop talking.

"I have learned silence from the talkative, toleration from the intolerant, and kindness from the unkind; yet, strange, I am ungrateful to those teachers."         -   Khalil Gibran
