Show me your car and I can tell how successful you’ll be in the business. And not because of what brand you drive or the cost…
Pick me up at the airport when I come to your town and I’ll know instantly how you’re doing by a few things:
If the outside is dirty and squinting through the filthy windshield gives me a headache, I know right away you’re in trouble. Because you don’t respect yourself enough to keep your car clean, no one else is going to respect you.
The next big clue is what’s in the CD player. If it’s a self-development disc, you’re doing good. If I don’t see any, you’re in trouble.
The final clue is in the trunk. If you open it to put in my suitcase and there are no tools in there, it tells me you’re an amateur. Because any professional would never drive anywhere without having some take home packs, follow up materials, and product samples close by at all times. A big part of the business is meeting people, and sometimes you have one shot to connect with them.
So what does your car tell me about you?
