Thursday, January 5 – Friday, January 6

Continued improvement, and a bit of hope

Two pretty good days in the sales trenches.  Thursday I worked in what’s proven to be a reliable if unspectacular sales location, and that’ describes my results quite accurately.  Friday I was in one of the better locations, and – you guessed it – had good results.  Just like I noticed earlier in the week, people were friendlier than had been the case during the holiday season.  Understand, if a potential customer says “no” in a friendly manner the end result is exactly the same as if he or she had been rude, but nonetheless the former situation is less demoralizing.  Actually, I’ll amend that slightly.  A nasty and rude “no” can be somewhat amusing.  The situation I really hate is when a customer is not interested but is too chicken to say “no,” and instead says something condescending like “I’ll come back to [the sales location] later today and talk to you then.”

I made a gym trip Friday evening, just some bench pressing.  My results were distinctly unimpressive: 6 x 135, 6 x 165, 6 x 185, 4 x 205, 2 x 225, 6 x 185, 12 x 135.
