Sales Joke of the Day (May 28) Flossing.

The salesman stood in front of the bathroom mirror, carefully flossing his teeth. "Ooh!" he would sigh every once in a while, or "Aaah!" as the little thread did its work. 

Suddenly and seemingly without provocation, his wife stomped into the bathroom and gave him a swift kick. 

Bewildered, the husband demanded, "What was that for?" 

I'm sorry, "his wife replied stiffly, ... "but I just don't believe in sighing flossers." 

Moral of the story.  True sales professionals understand the value of oral hygiene.  It's real tough closing the sale if your prospects back  away because of your bad breath, yellow teeth or decaying gum line.   So too avoid prospects giving you the brush off, brush at least twice a day, floss, and smile!   You're working hard to keep your teeth a sparkling white, so why not show them off when you have the opportunity!

"The biggest reason most people fail is that they try to fix too much at once - join a gym, get out of debt, floss after meals and have thinner thighs in 30 days."
