HOW TO TRULY IMPRESS A CLIENT
I was in the airport VIP lounge en route to Seattle a couple of
weeks ago. While in there, I noticed Bill Gates sitting
comfortably in the corner, enjoying a drink.
I was meeting a very important client who was also flying to
Seattle, but she was running a little bit late.
Well, being a straightforward kind of guy, I approached the
Microsoft chairman, introduced myself, and said, "Mr. Gates,
I wonder if you would do me a favor."
"I'm sitting right over there," pointing to my seat at the bar,
"and I'm waiting on a very important client. Would you be so
kind when she arrives as to come walk by and just say, 'Hi,
I shook his hand and thanked him and went back to my seat.
About ten minutes later, my client showed up. We ordered a
drink and started to talk business.
A couple of minutes later, I felt a tap on my shoulder. It was
"Hi, Ray," he said.
I replied, "Piss off, Gates, I'm in a meeting."
A candidate is a person who gets money from the rich and votes from the
poor to protect them from each other.
