Why do so many sales people go with these weird labels like 
"Growth" 
"Builder" 
"Strategic Advisor" 
"Account Manager" 

I say I'm a QUOTA BEARING SALES REP and I OWN IT!!

This pumpkin head said nothing other than give me props and help my numbers go up.

Also spelling errors on LinkedIn are unacceptable when you're begging for praise.

Asshat.

I prefer the Urban Dictionary definition:

Pumpkin Head
A metaphoric term to describe a person who has a high opinion of themselves and presents themselves as "All-Knowing" or SDS (Shit Don't Stink). The term has been derived from the idea that the person being called a pumpkin head has so much Ego that their head is swollen up like a pumpkin. One or more people at a job setting could possibly possess such traits to warrant being called a Pumpkin Head.Jim "Hey John, did you meet the new guy"
John "No, but I heard he's a real Pumpkin head"
Jim "you got that right, suffers from SDS big time"

I would love to be on the Gravity Payments Blind..or get some people from there on Bravado on here to dish. I get the feeling he hired a really good PR person because the lawsuits were withdrawn and talks never aired.

Don't forget to comment and share and connect and circlejerk and post what your 3 year old kid said last night which applies to your business explicitly.
Remember if you don't assblast content every hour you're failing to do your civic duty to the internet! /s

I like how everyone seems to know the "secret" to being successful in a sales career.

You know, because every industry is exactly the same.

Context is key. 

I see that as "people will always remember how you treat them". 

If your default thinking is "How can I add value to (enter any aspect of life)" then you will always come out ahead.

There is something about knowing people read what your write and that it impacts them. But this comes across as looking for attention and almost cringeworthy.

A little strange to tote the idea of giving back, and then provide a post that has almost no value… I'm a little worried if that took them 20 minutes to actually write.

Knowing personally how much of a goober he is, probably somewhere around 30-40 minutes.

I couldn't even get through reading this post. The first two lines brought no value to me whatsoever. And Lord help everyone that comments "That's it" or "That's the post"... If that needs to be said, you need to considering returning back to Delta Sigma Chi or whatever and drink a Natty Light to have a personality.
