My First Wife and I recently listened to a motivational speaker who sells Avon products. She might be a stand-up comedienne, cuz she sure was a hoot. We have repeated this story of hers several times already.
She named several other gimmicks, then suddenly said, “…and I even ran for State Representative a few times. See, that way, every time I was on TV I got to say that I was an Avon Lady in my district. It worked. I got more and more new customers.
“Well, I can’t do that anymore, because the last time I ran—I almost won.”
