PEAS ARE YOUR ENEMY AND MUST BE DESTROYED!
Hi Peeps. It is I, your Peepmaster, Rick Greene, MAS, SAAC, PPAI, FBI, CIA, F F F Und F.
I'm pretty thrilled to bring my Be Bold, Be Different, Be Memorable sales approach here to Blogland. Over the past few years, I've had quite a few articles printed in the now-defunct Corporate Logo Magazine and currently in PPB Magazine and The SAAC Times. For one month, I was a guest blogger several years back, but this is my initial experience with an ongoing blog that will never end.
As this is my first blog post for this new regular Be Bold Blog, it is only appropriate to warn you exactly what you are in for! Within these scintillating paragraphs each time, I'm hopeful you will find an idea or two that will inspire you and then, perspire you. Because it's about thought, then about doing the work. There is NO substitute for doing the work.
I have a Be Bold article coming out in the April 2013 edition of PPB Magazine called "A Touch Is Still A Touch," and that piece reveals a pretty important secret about promotional products distributor sales from a Million Dollar Producer. In fact, really, about ANY sales job in ANY industry. I'm quite happy with the article and you'll want to keep an eye out for it. At its core, the piece is all about doing the work.
We can hope for lucky breaks, good timing, the stars lining up and something wonderful falling into our laps, and that does happen. But you can't count on it. There are mortgages and rent to be paid, food to be procured and incredible Blu-Ray releases on Hi-Def each and every DVD Tuesday. These things must be paid for, especially when starring Robert Downey, Jr. or that little chick with the sword in the "Kick Ass" movies. So, in the end, it's all about doing the work. Doing the work smarter and doing the work with a creative flair and doing the work so the work is FUN. We'll cover this right here. And I may share favorite recipes from time to time. (I like things with sugar and chocolate in them. Butter is a beautiful thing. Peas... I can take them or leave them. Mostly, I leave them in the freezer, where over time they transform from peas into a frosty new life form, capable of movement, reproduction and the ability to wax the kitchen floor. This is dangerous, as it could eventually lead to Planet of the Peas. Which is an anagram for Apes. Get it?)
