Sales Joke of the Day (April 1) The Frog.

The family had gathered at together for Easter.  The salesman's son kept pestering Grandpa, "Make a sound like a frog.  Make a sound like a frog."

"Make a sound like a frog?  Now why would you want me to make a sound like a frog?"  asked Grandpa.

In response, the salesman son says, "I heard Mom and Dad talking.  They said as soon as you croak, we can go to Florida!"

Moral of the story.   True sales professionals know they have to always be on guard not say too much.  Always assume the walls have ears.   And never talk behind someone's back, for if you do, someone else is sure to ribbit, ribbit it.

"We think too small, like the frog at the bottom of the well.  He thinks the sky is only as big as the top of the well.  If he surfaced he would have an entirely different view."
