The Guiness Book of World Records has proclaimed
Joe Girard, "The World's Greatest Salesman."
During his days as an automobile salesman, Joe, for
12 straight years, sold more cars and trucks than any
other salesperson. In fact, as an individual, he sold more
cars than most dealers sell in total, and all of them retail.
Coming from hard and humble beginnings, Joe had been
thrown out of high school, fired from over 40 jobs, and
had even failed at being a petty thief!
But in 1949 things began to turn around. He met a man
who "took him under his wings" teaching Joe how to be a
building contractor. Joe became pretty successful and in
1961 he contracted to build a number of private homes.
Unfortunately he had accepted the word of a real estate
speculator that said the area was to have a sewer system
installed. Poor Joe, he went on the man's word instead of
checking things out and finally found out this just wasn't true.
Individual septic tanks had to be installed, which meant the
homes became greatly de-valued.
As a result, Joe lost his business. It was Christmas and Joe
Girard had no job, no savings, and found himself in debt
to the tune of $60,000.
Then the final blow came.....
On a cold day in January, June Girard tearfully told her
husband there was no food in the house and the kids were
begging for something to eat.
On that day, Joe Girard found himself at the absolute bottom
of the barrel.
It was either see his kids starve or go out and find something.
After pleading and begging the manager of a car dealership to
hire him; the manager finally gave in and gave Joe a small
desk at the back of the showroom.
When Joe's first customer walked in that day, just
before closing time, Joe thought to himself, "There's
no way this guy is getting out of here without buying
a car from me."
Joe Girard remembered his hungry kids at home, then looked
at his customer and saw......a bag of groceries!
Within a month he became so successful at selling cars that
the manager fired him! He was too aggressive and the other
salesmen were upset.
But Joe had found his calling and it wasn't very long before
he was hired at another dealership where he worked until
the day he retired in 1978.
Recalling that first sale, and telling what made him the
Greatest Salesman In The World, Joe says this:
"Want. My want. That was all I knew. And that want was
enough to drive me to say and do enough of the right things
to sell that customer a car. I am not saying that that's all
there is to it, then or now, but that is most of it."
"If you want, and know what you want, you will have most
of what you need to be a successful salesman. I mean that.
Nobody can be a successful salesman without wanting.
Wanting something very much. And the more you want, the
more you drive yourself to do what it takes to sell."
"Once I saw that first customer as a bag of groceries to
bring home to my family, he was sold, whether he knew it
You and I might not ever become the world's greatest in
what we do, but we can become the best we can possibly
be at it. It all starts, continues, and ends with 1 simple word:
“Knowing what you want will power your drive.”

The Return of "Big Brother"
The Internet equivalent of a phone tap will soon
become commonplace. A system called "Carnivore"
has the ability to monitor all data flowing
through an ISP.
Carnivore can be set to look for traffic from a
specific person, then record it, or capture all
e-mails going through an ISP.
To use Carnivore, the FBI sets up a special
computer at the of each ISP, then plugs it into
the ISP's server. Many of the big name ISP's have
been "watched" by Carnivore for some time now. It's
just a matter of time before they hit all the locals.
Echelon is the supersecret eavesdropping operation
which the National Security Agency uses to monitor
virtually ALL electronic communications around the
Echelon is driven by a complicated and sophisticated
system of computers, satellites, and ground stations.
The NSA is budgeted nearly $7.3 billion every year
and has a staff of 38,000; more than any other single
Federal Government agency.
Encrypted messages are deciphered by "keys." The
NSA has already devised methods to uncover these keys
and read the encrypted e-mails. It is expected to soon
become law for all software makers to hand over their
keys to the NSA upon creation of any encrypted
White Man Speak With Forked Tongue
The following are excerpts from an editorial in the Sept.,
24, Investor's Business Daily. The article was written by
Betsy McCaughey who is currently adjunct senior fellow
at the Hudson Institute and former lieutenant
governor of New York.
"The U.S. is the single largest source of humanitarian
foreign aid to Afghanistan. American resources have been
pouring into a country, sheltering Osama bin Laden, one
of the FBI's "Ten Most Wanted," indicted for the 1998
bombings of the U.S. embassies in Tanzania and Kenya,
believed to be responsible for the stealth attack on the
USS Cole at anchor, and linked to the bombing of the
World trade Center."
"Yet last May 17 (2001), Secretary of State Colin Powell
announced the U.S. was BOOSTING humanitarian foreign
aid to Afghanistan, sending over $124 million worth of
products through international channels to a nation that
provides sanctuary for bin Laden."
"The Clinton administration ALSO BESTOWED GIFTS
on bin Laden's hosts. Just four weeks after the bombing
that massacred 17 American sailors on the Cole, Clinton's
team RAISED humanitarian foreign aid to Afghanistan
above the $100 million mark.
(Capital letters are this Editor's)
Fellow U.S. citizens, our tax dollars are being spent
to fight the dragon and then feed him at the same
time. I've searched the IBD and the Wall Street Journal
every day since that article and have yet to found anyplace
that states this foreign aid is being rescinded.
Does any one else think perhaps the American
people are being bamboozled here?
