and we put so much stress on ourselves,
Then think of the people who matter the most
And for a moment put that stress on the shelf.
For it’s the ‘stuff’ that we think people worry about,
The cars, the toys and the shoes,
And making the numbers is part of the game
But not if it’s family you lose.
As we head into a new year and century, too
Let’s see if we can balance the scales
Where we work real hard, of course we will do,
But we focus on more than the sales.
We focus on people – what they want and they need
In the office and even online,
Whether it’s quality time, or words of praise
Just let’s not forget our personal lives.
So to finish up this note, and from my family to yours
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
And I hope to catch up with you sometime soon
And help strengthen your sales career!!
Be Bold, Brave and Brilliant
