You do realize that Steve Jobs was over 40 before he passed, right?
"Yeah but he owned APPLE"...yup, true dat!
He also owned a few products, too....One I use everyday to bust out some OLD school music, while mowing the lawn at an OLD speed(TORO G3)....


Selling....Can you sell a WELL water?

When selling your services, essentially you are selling yourself. At the end of the day YOU are the PRODUCT....I do not care if you are the best PROVIDER to ever walk this green earth.

If you cannot sell yourself via:

TEXT(OMG....the old dude can text?)
EMAIL(He knows how to email?)
SOCIAL MEDIA(WTH he has a Facebook Page)
WEBSITE(This old dude, builds them)
PHONE Since I am soooo OLD...Here is my statement:"Years of practice"
FACE 2 FACE I love this part, but the OLDER I get the more wrinkles I have to show off....oh oh and grey hairs....haha

My man forget about age...because their are dudes older than me that will plain take me to school....Now go sell your PRODUCT...

how long did it take you to try and find the "respond" button? JUST KIDDING!!! Those are VERY good points! BUT, with a generation like today, kids are growing up with computers. Your generation had to be taught about them. I was over my friends house a few weeks ago and I saw a plastic flip cell phone that made noises when you pushed the keys to text. This kid is 3 years old!!! And they have toys like that already?! I bet you when he's older, put him behind a ZTR and watch him master it in a few minutes. But ask him to lay some mulch in 100 degree temps and he will throw in the white flag. But in the end, it is how you sell.
