Sales Joke of the Day (archives) The Key to Riches.

Seeing a homeless guy begging on the street, a woman took pity on him and gave him a handful of change.

"Thank you," said the homeless unemployed salesman.  "Your generosity is much appreciated.  You know, my life used to be great but just look at how low I've sunk now."

"How do you mean?" asked the saleswoman.

"Well," he explained, "I became a multi-millionaire by selling real estate.  I had bank accounts all over the world with hundreds of thousands deposited in each."

"So where did it all go wrong?" asked the saleswoman.

The homeless salesman sighed:  "I forgot my mother's maiden name."

Moral of the story.    True sales professionals know that in order to be successful at sales you need to be organized.   Your digital information must be organized too.   Personal finances, legal documents and your passwords must all be managed effectively and securely.  It's all part of life in the digital age.   Adapt and thrive or don't change and dive.   The choice is yours.

"Treat your password like your toothbrush.  Don't let anyone else use it and get a new one very six months."    -    Clifford Stoll
