    I think it's great! We need people like this. However, I didn't hear much about his family life. How many school events did he attend? How many family vacations did he go on, with the kids and spouse?

    I learned a lot from the article. It taught me a great deal of what NOT to do, if you want to be happy, and well-balanced.

    He has a goal, and is working each and every day to achieve it. He is a motivator. He is a successful business owner, salesperson, and time-manager.

    The reason I walked away from that type of stress was so that I could attend Open Houses at school. Band recitals, football games, basketball games, long weekends, when we do nothing but hit the road, and let it take us wherever.

    I think his story should be a motivator to all. We can all learn something from him. There are days when I SHOULD telemarket the way he does. But, I'd rather spend a bit more time with my clients and prospects, building relationships and getting referrals.

    I agree with his "no advertising" policy. It eliminates the "tire-kickers".

    I'll come back to this article, from time to time. One, to motivate me to get on the phone when I need to. Two, to know that there is more to being successful than making 10 presentations in 10 hours.

    A book by Al.

    It is a compilation of the things in life that are positive and wonderful.

    On second thought, it is not a book. I found it inside a fortune cookie.

    I don't PM so I have no idea what the threshold is. So what is it now? 1000 posts?

    That " boost the numbers so I can PM" statement came from a guy who was replying to a 18 month old post. Can't wait to get a pm from him.
    When do I get my fortune cookie? You can fax it over if you want.

    I ate the cookie.

    Don't think it would go through my fax machine.

    I already have a lifetime membership in Chumps association. For a one time fee of $699 I got lifetime benefits.

    I only paid $499 for a lifetime membership - and I'm much younger!
