“HOW I BECAME A MILLION DOLLAR CLOSER”
In 1980 I had left Paine Webber, the Stock Market, and Insurance business after thinking I had learned all there was to know about selling. I was bartending and skiing in a Mountain Town in the Western United States.
One day a man walked in to the Bar I was working, we’ll call him Rick, and Rick said to me,“I’ve been watching you for the past few weeks and you’re pretty good at this.” I said,“Thank you.” Then Rick said, “What are you doing?” I thought he’d had a few too many drinks and I replied, “Well Rick, I am bartending.” Everyone at the bar had a good laugh as they often do, at someone else’s expense.
