According to the Mayan calendar today is the last day for this blog.
Sorry to be saying good-bye, but the Mayans aren’t ones to let people down.
Since today is the last day according to the Mayan calendar, we might as well go out and sell like there is no tomorrow.
And since you’ll be selling like there’s no tomorrow, here are a few tips to help you make the most of it:
- Don’t worry about what you tell a customer. They won’t figure out until after the world is over.
- Ignore your Credit Department and Accounting. Since they deal with tomorrow, there’s no reason for them to be concerned about today.
- Ignore what your customer is trying to tell you. They don’t know what they’re talking about.
- After years of holding your tongue, it’s time to let it fly. There are customers out there who are flat-out idiots and it’s time to let them know they’re idiots. Pick up the phone and make the call now.
- Remember the time your competitor was talking negatively about you? Sure you do. It’s time you let them have it. Jump out to their website and leave some comments and then go to Yelp.com and any other site you can find and write how you feel.
- While you’re jumping on people, don’t forget to share with your boss how you feel. Be sure to mention how the reports he thought you labored over were really nothing more than a 5-minute exercise in writing sheer garbage.
- Finally, it’s time to let Marketing really understand how smart you are. Take a couple of hours but make it count. Let them have it. Be sure to share with them how they cost you serious money in lost bonus money over the year due to their pathetic marketing.
- And as your last act, pat yourself on the back, give yourself a hug, stare into a mirror, take a deep breath and say “wow I’m good.” Remember, it was your exemplary selling skills that saved the company on more than one occasion.
That’s it. The list is complete. It’s been a great ride and if by some freaky chance the Mayans are not correct, I will be back posting my insights!
