Honestly "Snake Oil" Gets a Bad Rap!

We all want to find a panacea, a remedy for what ails us. The typical quick fix. Is the product you or your company created and sells snake oil or a miracle cure? Is it really a vaccine for Coviv-19 or the cure for cancer. I started thinking about this question while riding my bike one weekend in Colorado. In the middle of nowhere, I landed upon a field with a random assortment of knick-knacks meant to depict the old west. There it was, this magnificent old (or made to look old) billboard for "Dr. Bob's Snake Oil, Cures All." Snake oil gets a bad rap. Sure, the Oxford English Dictionary defines snake oil as "a quack remedy or panacea." But did you know that the original real "snake oil" real

Teaching Your Child to be a Salesperson

A few months ago my adult daughter surprised me with an announcement that she has been offered a position as a sales rep. Before this move, she had gotten a Master’s Degree in Speech Therapy and practiced her trade for a few years both in public schools and in private practice. So, I was quite surprised to see her make such a bold move into a different profession. Though I would argue that in both careers you are devoted to helping others. What wisdom should a father, who spent most of his adult life and some of his childhood selling stuff, share with his newly minted sales hunter? First, I told here "there are no naturally-born salespeople". My second piece of advice was,“be yourself and ma

Don't TLDR: "Too Long Didn't Read"

By necessity, I have learned about the value of brevity. Perhaps it was my own bad habit of never reading past the first few sentences of a long email. People just don't read long emails. Bury the lead and you risk losing your audience quickly and any chance to get your point across to your reader or listener. Finally, all my years writing articles for school newspapers in high school and college have been put to good use. What is the best way to write sentences and express yourself in today's business world? Remember your grammar, what is the best form of punctuation #(&-;!.,)? Is it a question mark? A semicolon? Perhaps an exclamation mark or a period? I'll give away my answer first, the
