Talk'n 'bout My Generation! - 03/16/09 09:09 PM
When Mick Jagger belted out this tune for the Stones, I do not think he could have envisioned anything like the kids of today! I've heard them called by many names as of late: Generation Y, Gen Y, The Plug-and-Play Generation, The Gotta-Feel-Good Generation. What they're all referring to is the new young generation - our current 20-somethings. Every generation "deals" with the generation who comes after them. Their different views, their different ways of doing things, and so on; this generation is no exception. Why is everyone talking about this new generation now though? They've been coming along for years. (8 comments)

Bad Sales Tips! 1. Not being punctual: being on time is very important to a customer. First impressions are lasting ones and sales people need to make a good impression. Being on time will give a good impression to the client and increase their confidence in your company. 2. Poor presentation: some sales people just do not have all their ducks in a row and simply do not present well. A presentation is the first thing a customer will know about your services. If your product is not shown correctly to the customer he is very unlikely to list or buy. (6 comments)
