r ranch and on other ranches.
As a youngster I remember their smell...of leather, horses, tobacco, and sweat. Their handshakes were brick-hard and their stories of work, travel and war were riveting, with ample humor sprinkled in--always memorable.
They inspired the bunch of us youngsters in la familia. To this day our pride in them grows for who they were; what they did in life; and how they influenced our work ethic.

These agencies also tend to base their whole model on volume cold calling, with little research time allocated to undertake any other route or relationship building.
As for the use of the term "Youngsters" - tut tut - age is nothing but a number and I didnt start in this game until my late 20's. :)
The advantage being I had a little more time to naturally aquire skills relevant to the role, I understood people more, business more, had learned that you have to work to get, you have to ask before you can get, and used to rejection (being dumped a few times helps for sure!), like any maturing adult would be.

Some times I feel like the old rancher who was trying to help the young MBA whose BMW blew up next to his pasture. The youngster looked over at the herd, started telling the rancher all the new things he needed to do to make his cows give more milk, have better calves and do it more cost effectively. The old rancher asked him how he could tell all that just by looking. The youngster smiled and said he was highly educated about cows, calves and milk production and had just been to the latest convention.
The old rancher, stood up and said, "well son, your car is fixed and the only thing I can see that is wrong with all your good advice is that those are bulls, not cows so I guess I'll just keep on doing what I've been doing until somebody teaches you kids the difference between a cow and a bull"
Now that's "trubullcrap"
Sorry I couldn't stand not to steal your funniest to date :)…
