1918 and more
Some quotes found by Tom Asacker (go to Thought Pieces and hit his ebooklet).
“We’ve been around way too long, and people have
heard all our lies. We just have to deliver.”
— Rick Wagoner, Chairman of General Motors
and this one, from a book published in 1918, Modern Business:
“Psychologists tell us that the mind is under a continual
bombardment of ideas, all of which are trying to make an
impression on it. The prospect, therefore, does not sit
around with his mind a blank, calmly waiting for someone
or something to capture his attention without a struggle.
The salesman enters a field already well occupied and must
fight for the undivided attention that is a successful sale.”
What goes around, comes around. Thanks to Andrew Rupert for the link.
