Coffee4Closers

“Put that coffee down … coffee’s for closers”!

You won’t find too many sales people who haven’t seen this infamous movie. And, while Alec Baldwin was definitely a bit ‘over-the-top’ in this 1992 classic about unmotivated sales people … his message definitely resonates to every sales professional who wants to be the best at what they do.

The Scratch Role

In 1999, Bill Morgan, an Australian truck driver, was involved in a serious motor vehicle accident – and luckily … he survived! Unfortunately, he experienced an extreme, allergic reaction to the medication he was given … resulting in a massive heart attack!

Medical staff successfully revived Bill … but having been clinically dead for 14 minutes (and still lying in a coma) … doctors feared his brain damage would be too severe … and recommended he be removed from life support.

His family refused to “pull the plug” … and 12 days later, Bill woke up … feeling completely fine!

He quit driving trucks … found a new job … and asked his girlfriend to marry him – and she accepted.

Shortly thereafter … while at a local variety store … he purchased a scratch lottery ticket – and won a car!

A local TV station caught wind of Bill’s win (and given his incredible story) … decided to do a feature on him.

To re-enact the event … the TV crew asked Bill to buy and scratch another ticket … as they filmed.

As he was scratching the ticket, he stopped … looked at the camera and said … “I just won $250,000 … I’m not joking”!

And sure enough … he wasn’t!
Bill Morgan had just won the quarter million-dollar, grand prize!

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 ‘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 ‘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!

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.

THE ‘KNOCKER-UPPER’ ROLE (OTE: $150,000 – $160,000)

KnockerUpper.png

In 18th century Britain … alarm clocks were neither reliable … nor cheap!
Even so … people still had to make sure they woke up on-time to get to work!
So … what did they do?

Well … they did what all their neighbours were doing.
They hired a “knocker-upper” to rouse them from their slumber.

This individual would carry a baton and knock on clients’ doors.
If clients lived on higher floors … they’d use a long stick … (often made from bamboo) to reach their bedroom windows.
The “knocker-upper” wouldn’t leave a client’s window until they were certain their client had climbed out of bed.

In return, the knocker-up would be paid a few pence a week.

THE ‘ALCATRAZ’ ROLE (OTE: $110,000 – $125,000 USD)

alcatraz.png

At 9:40am on August 11, 1934 … America’s infamous Alcatraz Federal Penitentiary opened its doors to 137 prisoners.

The prison had been designed to hold “the worst of the worst” – criminals who regularly caused problems at other federal prisons and were considered to have no hope of rehabilitating.

In nearly 30 years of operation … 36 inmates made a total of 14 escape attempts.
Of those convicts … 23 were apprehended, 6 were shot dead … and 2 drowned.
The remaining 5 went missing … presumed to have drowned.

In 1962, Frank Morris and brothers John and Clarence Anglin, attempted the most renowned breakout from the facility.

With sharpened spoons … the trio chipped away at rotting concrete walls. They fashioned decoy heads (complete with locks of hair from the prison barbershop) … and strategically placed them in their beds, to fool the guards.

Their possessions were eventually found floating in the San Francisco Bay … but their bodies were never actually recovered! Some may speculate they may have been successful in their escape … but it’s extremely doubtful.

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