Your greatest source of success, is taking advantage of what's available to you yet. No one is asking you to do it. See, most people are waiting to be told they're waiting for some mandate. They're waiting for some deadline. They're waiting for the market to force them to do something we're waiting to be told or we're waiting for the compensation. Oh, I ain't gonna do that. I ain't getting paid for. Okay. And we miss out on so many things, that are available to us yet. No one is asking you to do. I think the only reason why I didn't get fired is because for decades, I always worked to the second set of opportunities. Because I had that curiosity. I didn't wait to be told or asked or paid. I just was like, what's that? Hmm. And I took it on it's not like, I said, oh, 18 years from now. I better learn all I can because in 18 years I'm gonna get demoted. I'm gonna lose my spot. No, it's just for 18 years I learned every department. There was, I never said, uh, I don't know, go ask him. Yes, I had the urge, I would stop myself and say, let me find out. Customers would ask me questions about products and I didn't even know. And I was like, you know what, that's a good question. I didn't just make something up. I found out see, because of all that, when I got demoted, I still had value. So when the choice came, do we fire marsh or can he still provide some sort of. , the answer was yes, because I could fill in, I wasn't a one trick pony I could fill in on any position into the front end of the store and the store. Wouldn't miss a beat. You don't wait. You don't get it. And then, oh, I guess I need to learn it. No, you just learn it. And how freeing is that? That you have the time and the freedom and the flexibility to do it, however, and whenever you want to. Thanks for being a part of the sales life for more on the sales life.
