THE ‘NEXT EPISODE’ ROLE ($55,000+)

NextEpisode.png

In July 1999, Andre Romelle Young (more commonly known as … Dr. Dre) released “The Next Episode”.

This was the third single from his second studio album – featuring Snoop Dogg, Kurupt and Nate Dogg.

Since that time … and as a result of his shrewd business sense, Dr. Dre moved on to producing albums for other artists and launching the wildly successful Beats by Dre headphones.

In May 2014 … Dre sold the Beats business to Apple … for a reported 3 billion dollars! Needless to say, he is now (by far) … the Richest Man in Hip-Hop!

What does this have to do with Match and Fable’s latest role?
Well … nothing, really!

THE ‘BEE’S KNEES’ ROLE ($70,000+)

BeesKnees.png

The phrase “the bee’s knees” gained popularity in the 1920’s.
No one really knows, how the term came to be.

Some claim it has to do with the fact that as a bee travels from flower to flower (then, back to the hive) … it carries pollen on its legs. Naturally … the sweetness of that pollen is collected around their knees.

Others maintain it stems from the phrase ‘the Be all, and End all’ … which, when shortened and said quickly … sounds like you’re saying the phrase … “the B’s ‘n’ E’s”.

In any event … while we don’t know the origin … we do know it stands for something which is highly regarded.

What does this have to do with our latest role?
Well … nothing at all!

THE ‘LIGHTNING STRIKES’ ROLE (OTE: $85,000 – $90,000)

LightningStrikes.png

If you live to be 80 years old … your odds of being struck by lightning once, are roughly 1 in 12,000. The odds of being struck twice? Well, now you’re looking at about 1 in 9,000,000!

However, in the case of Roy Cleveland Sullivan … these odds did not apply!

Now, while you’ve likely never heard of Mr. Sullivan … his story is truly unbelievable!
Sullivan served as a US Park Ranger at Shenandoah National Park in Virginia.
Over the span of 35 years (1942 to 1977) … Roy was struck by lightning – a total of 7 different times.

And … as improbable as it was … he lived to tell each tale!

Sadly … while he managed to survive 7 bolts of lightning … he ultimately met his demise by virtue of a self-inflicted gun-shot wound.

So … what does this have to do with Match and Fable’s latest role?
Nothing really.

That said … if you’ve got what it takes to perform in this role … you may have just caught lightning in a bottle!

THE EXECUTIONER ROLE (OTE: $93,500 – $115,500)

Executioner.png

In the late 1700’s, in Roscommon, Ireland … a woman named Betty and her son lived in miserable poverty.  While it was uncommon for someone raised in such conditions to be literate … Betty was!

She taught her only son to read and write and would constantly remind him that only money could bring him happiness in life. And, when he was old enough … she encouraged him to leave Roscommon and find his fortune – in America!

Years later, one dark evening … a tall, well-dressed gentleman knocked on Betty’s door looking for a place to stay. Betty let him in, and later that night, as he slept … Betty crept into his room, and murdered him for his money!

As Betty rifled through the man’s things … to her horror … she discovered the ‘stranger’ was, in fact … her son!

Overcome by the shock of her actions, Betty ran screaming into the streets … confessing her guilt. She was arrested, stood trial … and was condemned to death – by hanging!

On Execution Day … as Betty and a few other criminals were being led into the yard … they were informed the executioner had “called in sick” … and the sheriff was refusing to personally perform the executions.

Seizing her opportunity … Betty asked that her life be spared … in return for hanging the other prisoners – herself!

The sheriff agreed … and Betty got to work! “Lady Betty” was so efficient and capable … she was appointed as Roscommon’s Hang Woman … a job with a yearly salary … and room and board!

What does this have to do with Match and Fable’s latest role?
Well … not much, really.

THE ‘DROP A DIME’ ROLE (OTE: $54,000 – $66,000+)

DropADime.png

If you’re a basketball fan … you’ve heard the term “dropping a dime” – at least a thousand times!
But what does the term mean … and where did it originate?

As you may know … an assist in basketball is registered when one player makes a pass to another … and that pass is integral to a basket being scored.

Now … while no one can say for certain how this idiom came into existence … it is believed to have originated from the days before cell phones … (when you actually had to find a pay phone to make a call).

Back in the day, it cost 10 cents to make a call … and a person would often ask another for a dime.
As such … giving someone a dime was, in essence … assisting them to make a phone call!

So … there you have it!
But what does this have to do with Match and Fable’s latest role?
Not much … really.

That said … if you’re interested in a sales career … and looking for an opportunity to break into the profession … consider this job description as the folks at Match and Fable ‘dropping you a dime’!

THE ‘PUZZLE’ ROLE ($50,000 – $55,000)

puzzle role

In 1980, the Rubik’s Cube made its worldwide debut … and became an instant craze.

Two years later … the record for solving the peculiar puzzle stood at 22.95 seconds!
29 years later, Feliks Zemdegs would break the 6 second barrier … solving the puzzle in a mere, 5.66 seconds.

Many believed that record would very likely stand the test of time … and breaking the 5 second wall was impossible. That is … until Lucas Etter arrived on the scene.

In November 2015 …  14-year-old Lucas Etter, obliterated Zemdegs’ record while also breaching the 5 second barrier! Etter solved the puzzle in a mind-blowing 4.90 seconds!

So, what does this have to do with Match and Fable’s most recent mandate?

THE ‘BRASS TACKS’ ROLE (OTE: $107,500)

brasstacks

The saying “getting down to brass tacks” has a number of suggested origins – (some more popular than others).

These include; the brass tacks found on fine furniture … Cockney rhyming slang for the term “hard facts” … and the brass tacks that were hammered into a sales counter – to mark precise measuring points.

A less known theory involves the assassination of Abraham Lincoln.
Following Lincoln’s death … the undertaker, R.F. Harvey and his employees were asked to design the President’s coffin – using silver tacks as decoration.

In the mid-1800’s it was becoming increasingly popular to decorate coffins – and people would often spell out the deceased’s initials on the casket. Generally, brass tacks were used, rather than silver ones … as it was a far more economical option.

In this case, the term “getting down to brass tacks” referred to getting down to very serious business – the business of death!

So … what does this have to do with Match and Fable’s latest role?
Not much … really.

That said … if you are serious about getting your sales career off on the right foot … let us get down to the brass tacks here. You will be hard pressed to find a better organization that can set you on a more successful path!

SUMMARY:

Our client’s organization is a well-known brand … famous for developing top-shelf sales professionals. In fact, you’d be hard pressed to find a better organization to launch your sales career in the right direction.

THE ‘NICKY-NICKY 9 DOOR’ ROLE (OTE: $107,500)

NickyNicky9Door.png

Growing up in my neighborhood, there came a time … (usually around the age of 10 or 11), when you realized you didn’t want to be looked at as a ‘kid’ anymore.

And there was only one way to gain the ‘street cred’ that required.
That rite of passage was … none other than … ‘Nicky-Nicky 9 Door’!

In my neighbourhood … ‘Nicky-Nicky 9 Door’ (also called … ‘Ding-Dong-Ditch’) had four, fixed rules;

RULE #1: It had to ‘go down’ on a Saturday night … after dark.
(So … if your parents insisted you had to be home “when the street lights came on” … you pretty much disqualified yourself!)

RULE #2: You couldn’t knock on the screen door … it had to be the ‘real’ door!
(Having to open the screen door wasted precious seconds … increasing the odds of getting caught.)

RULE #3: You had to knock 3 distinct times.
(Ringing the doorbell, while knocking would elevate you to legendary status!)

RULE #4: You couldn’t pick the target house … that was always decided for you!
(And, it was usually a house with a crazy dog … or heaven forbid, the house everyone insisted was haunted.)

So … what does this have to do with Match and Fable’s latest role?
Nothing really.

That said … if you consider it … ‘Nicky-Nicky 9 Door’ was my initiation into the world of cold-calling.

SUMMARY:

Our client’s organization is a well-known brand … famous for developing top-shelf sales professionals.

THE ‘ROUGH ON RATS’ ROLE ($75,000 – $80,000)

In 1895, Tillie Gburek married John Mitkiewicz. In 1914, John passed away from what was believed to be “a heart condition”. Tillie’s second husband, Joseph Ruskowski also died … as did her next boyfriend.

Tillie’s third husband was Frank Kupczyk. Tillie would greet Frank in the morning, saying “it won’t be long now” … “you’ll be dying soon”. As Frank’s health deteriorated … Tillie began knitting herself a mourning hat … and even purchased a bargain coffin – storing it in their basement!

Upon Kupczyk’s death, Tillie remarried, yet again. And, as you’ve probably guessed, this husband (Frank Klimek) also fell ill. But this time … doctors suspected arsenic poisoning, and lab tests confirmed it!

As she was being arrested … Tillie turned to the police officer and said …”the next one I want to cook a dinner for, is you”.

The bodies of Tillie’s victims were exhumed … and were found to contain lethal doses of arsenic. Her “weapon of choice” had been a rat poison called – Rough On Rats!

Following her arrest, it was found that; a total of 20 people had fallen ill after dining at Tillie’s home (14 of whom died) and Tillie, newly nicknamed, “the Poison Widow” … had life insurance policies on all of her husbands!

PS: On the bright side … you may be glad to know, after 3 months in the hospital … Joseph Klimek survived!
