    Moral of the story: If you share critical information pertaining to credit and risk with your shareholders in time, you may be in a position to prevent avoidable exposure.

    A man is getting into the shower just as his wife is finishing up her shower when the doorbell rings. The wife quickly wraps herself in a towel and runs downstairs. When she opens the door, there stands Bob, the next door neighbor. Before she says a word, Bob says, “I’ll give you $800 to drop that towel.” After thinking for a moment, the woman drops her towel and stands naked in front of Bob.

    After a few seconds, Bob hands her $800 dollars and leaves. The woman wraps back up in the towel and goes back upstairs. When she gets to the bathroom, her husband asks,

    “Who was that?”
    “It was Bob the next door neighbor,” she replies.

    “Great!” the husband says, “Did he say anything about the $800 he owes me?”

    Uncle Ted...
    Posted on: 2018-01-02 05:35:49   By: Anonymous
    One day at the end of class, little Johnny's teacher asks the class to go home and think of a story to be concluded with the moral of that story. The following day the teacher asks for the first volunteer to tell their story.

    Little Suzy raises her hand. "My dad owns a farm and every Sunday we load the chicken eggs on the truck and drive into town to sell them at the market. Well, one Sunday we hit a big bump and all the eggs flew out of the basket and onto the road."

    When the teacher asked for the moral of the story, Suzy replied, "Don't keep all your eggs in one basket."

    Little Lucy went next. "My dad owns a farm too. Every weekend we take the chickeneggs and put them in the incubator. Last weekend only eight of the 12 eggs hatched."

    Again, the teacher asked for the moral of the story.

    Lucy replied, "Don't count your chickens before they hatch."

    Next up was little Johnny. "My uncle Ted fought in the Vietnam war, and his plane was shot down over enemy territory. He jumped out before it crashed but could only take a case of beer, a machine gun and a machete. On the way down, he drank the case of beer. Then he landed right in the middle of 100 Vietnamese soldiers. He shot 70 with his machine gun, but then he ran out of bullets! So he pulled out his machete and killed 20 more. Then the blade on his machete broke, so he killed the last ten with his bare hands."

    The teacher looked a little shocked. After clearing her throat, she asked what possible moral there could be to this story.

    "Well," Johnny replied, "Don't fcuk with Uncle Ted when he's been drinking."

Zig was a charter member of American Salesmasters with Richard "Dick" Gardner and Hal Krause in 1963. The companies objective was to raise the image of salespeople in America. They functioned as a seminar provider in cities across the Midwest (Memphis, Atlanta, Kansas City, St. Louis, Chicago, Denver, etc) featuring speakers like Zig, Dr. Norman Vincent Peale, Ken McFarland, Cavett Robert, Bill Gove, Dr. Maxwell Maltz, Red Motley and many more. They would book an auditorium, put together a slate of speakers and contact local businesses to sell tickets to the show. The audiences were chalk full of insurance agents, car salesmen, financial advisors, entrepreneurs, small business owners and curiosity seekers.
Following that Zig spoke extensively for audiences of the National Association of Sales Education (NASE) founded by Dick Gardner in 1965 and also became a major sales trainer for the Mary Kay Cosmetics. In 1968, he became a vice president and training director for the Automotive Performance company and moved to Dallas, Texas. Subsequent to that Zig spoke extensively at seminars for Peter Lowe from Canada and eventually signed an exclusive agreement to support Peter Lowe events.
In 2007, a fall down a flight of stairs left him with short-term memory problems. Nonetheless, by 2010, Ziglar still traveled around taking part in motivational seminars.

    Ziggy played guitar, jamming good with Wierd and Gilley, and the Spiders from Mars. He played it left hand, but made it too far. Became the special man. Then we were Ziggy's Band.

Want versus Need
Posted on: 2018-01-02 08:36:30   By: Anonymous
While the thought is nice, I would have liked the comment better if it was about 'need' versus 'want. People want quite a bit; people typically need less.

Good karma does beget good karma though. Here's a way to help others come 2018:
The Human Utility project. Look it up. Maybe do something similar in your home town.

      If you have what you need, why want?
