THE ‘JOE PISTONE’ ROLE (OTE: $82,500 – $99,000+)

JoePistone.png

Joe Pistone was born in 1939 in Erie, Pennsylvania but …. grew up in Paterson, New Jersey.

He joined the FBI in 1969 and since he knew how to drive an 18-wheeler … he was quickly assigned to the truck hijacking squad.

Joe’s ability to penetrate this crime ring led to the arrest of more than 30 criminals.
More importantly … Joe demonstrated his potential effectiveness for his next mission.

In September 1976, Pistone exited his local FBI office and ‘vanished’ for six years!
Long story short … under the alias of Donnie Brasco … he infiltrated the New York Mafia’s Bonanno Family.

His involvement led directly to 200 indictments and more than 100 convictions!

What does this have to do with Match and Fable’s role?
– Nothing really.

THE ‘3 DOLLAR PISTOL’ ROLE (OTE: $140,000 – $155,000+)

3dollarPistolv2.png

Not a term heard often these days … unless you hang around Match and Fable’s offices!
One of it’s meanings refers to something being ‘hot’ … as in, attractive or desirable.
For example, “Match and Fable is hotter than a 3-dollar pistol”!

But, where did the term originate?
Well, back in the mid-1800’s … gun manufacturers like; Remington, Smith & Wesson and Winchester were selling a boat load of pistols.

As is often the case … counterfeiters saw an opportunity to capitalize … and make a quick buck.

To keep their pistol prices super low … their manufacturing processes and standards were naturally, extremely shoddy. Mismatched parts resulted in misaligned chambers and barrels … causing a slew of problems when fired! In fact, in some cases … these pistols would actually explode in the shooter’s hand!

What does this have to do with Match and Fable’s latest role?
Well … not much.
That said … this role is “hotter than a 3-dollar pistol” … and won’t last long!
