Sales Joke of the Day (March 16) The Wine.

It was Sunday afternoon and the retired salesman was just enjoying spending some time with his wife.  She was sipping on a glass of wine while relaxing on the patio.

"I love you so much, I don't know however I could get along without you," exclaimed his wife.

The salesman asked, "Is that you or the wine talking?"

"Get over yourself already," she replied.  "That was me talking to the wine!"

Moral of the story.  True sales professionals know that in order to succeed at sales, they do indeed need to "Get Over Themselves."  Sales is all about the customer, their needs, their wants and their problems.   And while a little wine might help one relax and get through tough times, a lot of whining about tough times won't help one drip.
