Award dinners...

A former professor we visited a few weeks ago said that he didn't see us at the regional award ceremonies. "Where were you?" He asked.

"You know, John." I responded, "We just don't need all that stuff."

"What do you mean?" John asked.

"We are doing what we like to do, we have enough business and we are having fun. Let the guys that need some assurance from others go to the award ceremonies while we have fun and work (if you can call it that) at the same time. Our work is our reward."

"Well, is just seems all the sales and marketing folks were at the award dinner." John said.


Will Rogers seemed to said it best: "One-third of the people in the United States promote, while the other two-thirds provide." That was about 75 years ago - we are sure his numbers could now be reversed.
