A Noble Profession

I had a front row seat today, as I witnessed my Son's first transaction as a professional salesman. Yes, he closed the deal... and, yes I was his first customer... For the record, I was not a lay-down. He had to work hard for my business (probably harder than with a 'normal' customer), and he definitely earned it. I could not be prouder than I am of him today... as he follows in my footsteps in the Noble Profession of Sales.

There are too many noble professions to list (military, medical, public safety, education, not-for-profit, etc.) Rarely, however, is Sales ever included in this group... despite it being the Lifeblood of the world's economy and everything we have accomplished. Simply put, without Sales... mankind would be nothing more than isolated hunters & farmers.

The profession of Sales has a deserved reputation of sometimes being something much less than noble (because of the countless individuals & organizations who abuse their customers). However, I am proud to announce that there is another addition to the world's sales force that is and will continue to do it The Right Way!
