UNSINKABLE.png

The daughter of Irish immigrants … Violet Jessop was born and raised in Argentina.
Upon her father’s death … her family returned to England.
Soon after, her mother took ill … and Violet left school to become a stewardess.

She eventually accepted a position with a British shipping company … called White Star.
In 1911 … the ship Violet was working on (The Olympic), collided with a British warship – HMS Hawke. No one was seriously injured in the collision.

On April 10, 1912, 24 year-old Jessop boarded the infamous RMS Titanic!
Four days later …  the Titanic struck an iceberg in the North Atlantic … sinking within 2 hours.
1,503 people died … while 705 people survived – and among the survivors, was, Miss. Violet Jessop.

Believe it or not, Violet continued her employment with White Star and … on November 21, 1916, as the HMHS Britannic was floating in the Aegean Sea … an explosion rocked the ship – sinking it in a mere, 55 minutes.
30 people died … while 1,066 people survived – and among the survivors was none other than, Violet Jessop!

Undeterred by her brushes with death … Violet continued to work as a stewardess on various ships. All in all … she would spend 42 years at sea, retiring to her cottage in Suffolk … and passing at the age of 83.

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.

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 ‘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.

JohnnyCash.png

One of seven children … J.R. Cash was born in Arkansas on February 26, 1932 and grew up on the family farm. His family made a living working in the cotton fields … a job Johnny was introduced to at the age of 5!

46 years later (following significant financial success as a country singer) … Johnny had built the “House of Cash” on a farm 25 miles outside of Nashville – where he kept exotic animals.

The winter of 1981 was particularly harsh and as such … Johnny decided he needed to move his animals into shelters to help them survive. As Johnny approached his 7-foot ostrich named Waldo, it was clear the bird was not in a good mood.

As he stepped up to the bird … Waldo jumped into the air and delivered a vicious kick … splitting Johnny’s stomach wide-open. The force of the kick broke 5 of his ribs and resulted in significant internal bleeding.
