The Really?? Rants Continue!!

Laughing Man

We have talked about ...Really?? moments for a while.Some may think ...really Jeff, more Really?? articles?
The reality is that there are several facets to Really Moments in our personal and professional lives. Really?? We have received great feedback on these and seemingly have touched on a hot button. 


For those who missed these Rants, the first rant is here and the second rant is here.
In this issue, we feature a guest commentator. Nowell Wisch is a multi-line rep from Southern California and a great wordsmith.  When I asked him to write this topic from his perspective I knew I had the right person to do the job. I encourage you to check out what Nowell has to say in his thought provoking commentary, A Rant in Sheep's Clothing. 
On a side note, I personally have been doing battle with our "former" cell phone carrier, Sprint. I invite you to check out this "dramedy", Sprint...Cell Phone Coverage You Can Die From. There are good business lessons here including a great story on how Amazon does business shared by Jeffery Gitomer. 

Make it a great day!

Deep Thoughts from Multi-Line Rep Nowell Wisch
Salesman Cartoon
"Multi-line Rep Rant's to the right of me.
Multi-line Rep Rant's to the left of me.
Multi-line Rep Rant's behind me and
Multi-line Rep Rant's before me..." 
Well, OK, maybe not a "rant" per se. 
Why would a multi-line rep rant at the very customer base necessary for his survival? Because when you've been contacted by Jeff, you can't say no and he asked for a "Rant". This is a "rant in sheep's clothing" since it is a cautionary tale at worst and a plea at best. It is a "Why should I talk to you?" and "What do I get for my precious time?"
