SHOELACES (OTE: $145,000 – $155,000+)

As a young man in Chicago, John Mulholland was fascinated with magic.
He would go on to become a well-respected professional magician, for more than 20 years.

Then, in 1953 (at the outset of the Cold War) … the CIA covertly engaged Mulholland to compose an instructional manual about deception and misdirection. One of these manuals was called “Recognition Signals”.

Among other things, this manual provided detailed instructions, allowing CIA agents to communicate secret messages to one another – using their shoelaces!

Different lacing patterns conveyed unique, secret messages such as … “follow me” … “I’ve brought someone” or “you are in danger”!

The ability to communicate without using dubious movements … proved to be very useful.

DAMN BIG BEE – (OTE: $120,000 – $135,000+)

In 1859 … as British explorer, Alfred Russel Wallace was strolling around Bacan Island (in Indonesia) … he came across something, extremely extraordinary!

As he described it … it was “a large black wasp-like insect, with immense jaws like a stag-beetle.” Turns out, it was a never-before-seen … wild species of bee!

What made it so unique … was its sheer size!
The species (unsurprisingly named, Wallace’s Giant Bee) is the world’s largest bee … with females reaching lengths of nearly 4cm … with wingspans of more than 6cm!

Long believed to be extinct, the WGB had not been spotted for over a century – until American researcher Adam Catton Messer, finally stumbled upon another – in 1981!

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

That said … if you’re a real hunter and don’t mind being busy as a bee … you can make some real nice ‘honey’ in this position!

THE ‘EARN YOUR STRIPES’ ROLE (OTE: $60,000 – $120,000+)

The expression “earning one’s stripes” comes from the military practice of awarding service members with crests, often resembling stripes.  The stripes indicate rank – and one’s rank means a lot!

The US Army awards a single stripe for each 3-year period of service.
The Marine Corps, Navy and Coast Guard … stretch it to 4 years.

Now, the concept of “earning your stripes” doesn’t only apply to the military.
At Match and Fable we talk to a hell of a lot of sales professionals – from newbies to ultra-experienced!

YOU GIVE ME FEVER (OTE: $96,000 – $100,400+)

In 1847, Dr. Ignaz Semmelweis noticed that ladies giving birth in a maternity clinic in Vienna … were dying at an alarming rate!

The deaths were attributed to an ailment dubbed, “childbed fever” … but Semmelweis wasn’t buying it.

He began investigating and discovered that women treated in the doctors’ ward were dying 5x more often than those in the midwives’ clinic!

He quickly determined that doctors were conducting autopsies, as well as delivering babies. And to make matters far worse … these doctors were often moving directly from one procedure to the next – spreading infection from dead bodies to maternity ward patients!

To halt transmission, Semmelweis introduced simple disinfection procedures. Maternity wards were to be kept clean … and doctors were required to wash their hands. As a result, the rate of “childbed fever” plummeted.

Despite its effectiveness … his solution was ridiculed by many doctors, who considered it insulting to be required to wash their hands!

The incessant criticism eventually led Dr. Semmelweis to suffer a nervous breakdown.
He ended up in a mental asylum … and died, in 1865.

Ironically, his cause of death was ruled; sepsis … the very same thing that had killed all those women in the maternity ward!
