Sales Are Bad: A Cry For Attention?





Unleashing Bold Initiatives

Often when I’m writing, I’ll imagine a scene and prime the pump with a caption starter like “I appreciate what you’re saying, but…” or “You know what would be great…” Then it becomes more of a puzzle to figure out a funny ending rather than pulling a cartoon entirely out of the ether.

I wrote the above cartoon that way. I started with a bad sales graph and prefaced the caption with “Sales are bad, but…” After a bit it occurred to me that sales might be behaving badly like children, and the end just sort of fell into place.

  1. Works well. Great little cartoon.

  2. I like that.

    It reminds me that just we can learn to raise (rear) our children, we can learn to raise (increase) our sales.

    Thanks Mark.
