The youtube skit is right on the money!
What I do at Six Flags is this.
We have this contract with Wyndham.http://www.wyndham.com/
I trot on stage and breath fire or dance with machetes, do a very quick little show.
That is all I normally do.
Some little weasel said that that was all I did, and the salesman did all the heavy lifting.
Boy was I pissed!
So, I got set up for sales, and kicked some ass!
What an opener does is open the sale, a closer, well closes.
Dude, I can do both ends of the deal, and make it work!
I can sell kirby vacuums door to door!
I can fund raise for whatever non profit I am interested in, and am really good at it!
Sure, I worked at Radio Shack, and did my numbers.
But, when Radio Shack did this stock option crap, and it was clear I was not getting anywhere, I hit the bricks!
Radio Shack lost it, the technical talent And the sales talent.
I will be the first to tell you, I am no engineer.
What I am is is a sales person.
Sure, I do silly stunts, but that is to get your attention!
I am not here to sell you some ham crap, I want to sell you a cellphone, A full home theater system, and satellite service!
That penny ante bullshit?
Ham radio is an interesting hobby, but that is it.
The old farts who are upset about losing 11 meters ages ago?
Most CBers don't give a shit.
Why? because it is.
I don't need or want an Elmer, it really is not that important.
What is important are, what are my sales figures, and how much money am I getting?!
Ham Radio is my toy.
