Sooo, you can imagine how I felt by the time I hit 57.

Yeah, I was 31..........

In the business at 24,out at 31........I guess I "retired" from that business.

We had a LOT of salesmen on their second marriage, goign through divorces, alcohol and drug problems, etc, it was really sad in a lot of ways.......

Our top salesman was an ex-NFL guy.........we are still friends........

Yeah, and does deleting surfing History every day help?

Never mind, this is what they want, take fewer long breaks away from the desk. Find an addiction that keeps me in the office, available for the "big pushes."
