GeneralCorp strikes again.

absolutely unhinged borderline shitposts on LinkedIn make for amazing Corp comments. 

TLDR: DeWalt compares marriage proposal to sales strategy.

the utter depravity of LinkedIn is mind numbing. People engage in dumber, more narcissistic behaviour on it than anywhere else. The false sense of security from it being a 'professional' network means these inbreds just use it to fucking brag. I hate it.

It completely devolved right about 2016 and has only gotten worse. There's very little "professional" about it now. Everything always seems to be a race to the lowest common denominator.

🚀🚽 Elevating Your Sales Game: Lessons from the Lavatory 🚽🚀

As sales professionals, we're always on the lookout for new strategies and techniques to propel our success. But what if I told you that some of the most valuable lessons could be found not in the boardroom, but in the humble confines of the bathroom? That's right, folks! Get ready to flush away your old sales tactics and embrace a whole new level of professionalism with these bathroom-inspired insights. 💼🛁

1️⃣ The Power of Preparation: Stock Up Your Arsenal 🧻
Just like a well-prepared sales pitch, a fully stocked bathroom ensures you're ready for anything that comes your way. Think about it: when you're armed with toilet paper, soap, and hand sanitizer, you can tackle any challenge with confidence. So, stock up your sales arsenal with knowledge, resources, and a killer pitch to handle objections like a pro.

2️⃣ Timing is Everything: Don't Rush the Process ⏰
Ever try to force a sale before the prospect is ready? It's like trying to rush through a bathroom break – messy and uncomfortable for everyone involved. Instead, take your time, read the signs, and know when it's the right moment to make your move. Patience is key, my friends!

3️⃣ Presentation is Paramount: Keep It Clean and Professional 🧼
Just as you wouldn't show up to a meeting looking disheveled, you shouldn't present your product or service in a less-than-stellar manner. Keep your pitch polished, your appearance professional, and your language squeaky clean. Remember, first impressions are everything!

4️⃣ Adaptability: Roll with the Punches 🔄
In sales, as in life, things don't always go according to plan. But just like a well-prepared bathroom-goer always has a plan B (or a roll of backup toilet paper), successful salespeople adapt to changing circumstances with grace and flexibility. Embrace the unexpected, and you'll come out smelling like roses.

5️⃣ The Art of Networking: Make Connections Everywhere You Go 🚪
You never know who you'll meet in the bathroom – from potential clients to industry influencers. So, don't be afraid to strike up a conversation, exchange business cards (or maybe not in this setting), and make meaningful connections wherever you go. Networking is the name of the game, folks!

6️⃣ Self-Care Matters: Invest in Your Personal Growth 🌱
Just as you take care of your physical health with regular bathroom breaks, don't forget to invest in your professional development. Whether it's attending seminars, reading industry blogs, or honing your sales skills, never stop striving to be the best version of yourself.

So there you have it, folks – sales wisdom straight from the porcelain throne! 💡💼 Next time you find yourself in the bathroom, take a moment to reflect on these valuable lessons and watch your sales game soar to new heights. And remember, success is just a flush away! 🚀🚽

During college, the master puppeteer from the movie came and spoke at one of my classes. He’s friends with one of the professors. We had to suffer through a puppet movie about Faust first.
