Need a Job?
by Hellesponte & Kerodin
December 11, 2010
Let's change gears for a moment. The economy
is rough, and you may need income. Maybe you
are ok, but you know someone who needs a way to help
feed the family.
I hope this helps you or someone you know:
When I was seven I won the sales contest at the
Potomac VFW. The VFW printed up calendars with
cute covers, they were the size of a checkbook.
We went door-to-door and sold the calendars as a
fund-raising source. I sold hundreds, and won.
Of course, I was cute and charming. It helped.
Beginning the same year I made hundreds of dollars
(at $10 per driveway) shoveling snow in my
neighborhood, and cutting grass in the summer.
When I started a real job at 18, I advanced rapidly
in technical skills and customer service - because I
wanted it. In my first year, I out-sold every other
technician on staff, and received a bonus at
Christmas (which matched my cumulative commission
for the year) and was able to buy my first truck on
See, I needed money. As a kid I liked baseball
and football cards and cherry slush puppies (similar
to a slurpee). As I got older, I liked girls,
boats, 4x4's and boom sticks. All of my likes
required money, so I had to earn.
I have always had an entrepreneurial disposition,
and it continues today. Here is an interesting
bit of human nature I have experienced as an
employer: There is a vast portion of our population
that will simply not work hard to get ahead.
Once (some) people hit a certain comfort level, they
simply won't work for more. They are willing
Three years ago I employed two dozen people in the
DC suburbs in a technical service company. I
was horribly disappointed at the level of effort
today's 18-30 year old folks are willing to put into
their jobs. Today, they all work for someone
else, because I can't be bothered with people who
choose not to succeed.
In another business (media related), we decided to
hire a sales staff for a specific venture: a
Sales people in the DC area want a minimum $52k base, with
health insurance and a 10-20% commission rate before
they sell the first widget. And I'm not
talking about seasoned professionals with a track
record of 7-figure sales. I'm talking about
the young college grad with little or no experience
with the products you are offering or the real world.
Do you have any idea of the effort a person is
willing to invest when they start with a
I hired five professionals with experience in media
sales (and one young college grad without media
experience) during the same week to push a particular
magazine we were publishing at the time, gave them
the base they requested, fuel allowance, and all the
resources they would need to earn - seriously - a
very easy and BIG six-figure income. All they
had to do was get out there and put the product in
the face of businessmen. I know the product
and pricing worked, because I tested it myself.
The DC Metro area is such that there are
tens-of-thousands of businesses, most of which
advertise constantly. Our city and suburbs are
arranged so that a sales rep can visit hundreds
businesses a day, on foot.
What I got, after 2 months of carrying these
professionals on my payroll, was a raft of excuses.
Mind you, I hired people with established careers.
They had lists of clients from when they sold Yellow
Pages ad space, radio spots, magazine ad space, newspapers, web,
et cetera. To a person, I found they would
spend a few hours each day giving the barest effort
to setting up appointments.
Collectively, they moved about $50k of ad space over
2 months. (That is abysmal) Most of that was
accomplished by the one young guy who had never sold
anything but door-to-door pest services - but he
wanted it. The others failed because they did not try.
I made it too comfortable for them.
My mistake. I learned. Now, if I decide
to give a person a shot to work for me selling a
product, they get a straight commission. If
you sell, you get paid. No sale, no eat.
One of the most successful HVAC companies in America
was down in Texas. The owner succeeded,
believe it or not, by going door to door and selling
HVAC systems and services like a vacuum cleaner salesman.
Every day, he'd go knock on doors. Can you
imagine how many times he heard "No thanks" or had
doors slammed in his face? But he went out
every day, and it added up. He retired a very
Most of the wealthiest people in the world sell
stuff. Insurance and real estate are the big
ticket items, but, ultimately, whatever you do for a
living, sales is involved, somewhere in the business
model. Even if you are a World Class
bio-researcher, sales is involved: Because whoever
is underwriting your research is looking ahead,
hoping to have a product to sell as a result of your
Real sales is not the smarmy, fast talking garbage
spewed by the stereotypical used car sales slug in
plaid from the 70's. Smart sales involves a
soft approach, simply letting folks know that you
have X product to offer. If they want it or need it,
they will buy it.
You give your business card or promotional piece to
as many people as possible, and you never
try to sell anything on the first contact. If
you are a decent human being, the sales will take
care of themselves.
It is a numbers game, pure and simple. There
is a certain number of people, at any given moment,
who want or need a particular product or service.
The key to sales success is simply being in their
orbit when they want or need your product or
service. If your sales rate is 1%, and you
need to move 10 units per day, you must expose your
product to 1,000 people each day.
Are you unemployed, or under-employed? Surely
you have a skill worthy of marketing, even if it is
simply shoveling a sidewalk for $20. Decide
what you can do, and then go and meet every single
homeowner and business owner in your AO. You
can buy 10,000 first class business cards from
printplace.com for less than $100. (I buy quite a
bit from printplace.com and I can endorse their
Here is a business model that I know works, and
anyone can do it with zero start-up cost and
If you need money to feed your family, here it is:
Go to local businesses and meet the manager or
owner. Offer to take 5,000 of their business
cards or sales flyers and hand deliver them to 5,000
households in the area. Pick a nice
neighborhood, so the merchants are reaching the best
Charge $188 for your service. (For most
businesses, $188 is throw-away money) If you get 10
businesses aboard, you gross $1,880. You can
walk to 5,000 homes in 2-3 days, depending on the
neighborhood. If it is a townhouse
development, you can get it done in a day.
You put your 10 ads in an envelope or plastic
newspaper bag, and knock on
every door. If anyone is home, smile and hand
them the envelope. If they are not home, leave
the envelope in the door (not the mailbox - Big
Uncle has a problem with that).
You can fine tune your business. Tell your
customers to give only business cards, or only 4x9
postcards, et cetera, so that when you hand it to a
resident, they are receiving a tidy little package.
You can buy nice envelopes, and if you have a few
bucks for start-up, you can even have the envelopes
pre-printed with your company name to build your
You can tell your customers to have special
postcards printed, offering a coupon or discount
that is not available anywhere else. That way
the business will know that your efforts are
effective, as the customer comes in with the coupon
that only you were delivering.
Why would a business owner do it?
It does not matter what the economy is like:
Businesses that do not advertise will die.
Advertising is simple arithmetic. For him to mail 5,000 postcards at
First Class rates is $2,200. Even if he uses
the bulk mail process, his best rate will be $.17
per piece. That is $850. You only charge
$188 - it is a no-brainer.
You can also explain to the business owner that with
your service, the homeowner will pay special
attention to his piece. How many postcards
does the mailman deliver every day? Most of us
simply throw them all away. The message is
lost in the junk. Your service hand
delivers his message, and you limit your
package to only a few advertisers, so he isn't
simply one voice in a big stack.
The key is to get out and get it done.
Get a haircut. Shave. You do not need a
suit to meet a business owner - you need sincerity
and a good offer. Businessmen look at the
bottom line. He'll want to know that you
deliver the pieces, rather than just dumping them in
a trash can. So, tell him exactly which
neighborhoods you will service. He probably
has a friend, relative or customer he can contact
next week to verify delivery.
When you go door-to-door, dress nicely. Jeans
work, with a nice button-down shirt and a nice top
coat. Harriet Homeowner is not really
interested in opening the door for Mr. Scruffy on
her front step.
I promise this works. Your mileage may vary,
for obvious reasons. If you live in a small
town or rural area, the demographics are difficult
to overcome. Fiddle with your numbers.
If you decide to include 10 advertisers and you
charge $198 instead of $188, you have increased your
net profit margin by $100 for the same amount of
work. Charge less if you must.
The most time consuming aspect is stuffing 5,000
envelopes with all the ad slicks. Get the kids
Think about it.
Instead of hoping to be the one person hired out of
hundreds of applicants for one of the few dead-end
jobs out there - take your future in your own hands
and get to work!
comes a time when civility is no longer appropriate
as the only option on the table. Dare we not offend the
sensibilities of Liberals, Socialists, and Communists in our
midst who are ruining and destroying our republic? Are we
to cower and sheepishly genuflect when we are scolded for
the tone or choice of our words in the face of ruin,
poverty, tyranny, and death?!
we so frightened of chastisement from insignificant men and
women of the political Left with stained and darkened souls
that we turn from our duties of Patriotism and shun our
sacred obligation to support and defend the Constitution of
the United States of America? We ask you, is not our
republic worth the risk of being castigated? Is the soul of
our mighty nation no longer worthy of our fortunes, our
lives, and our Sacred Honor? Have we lost so much of our
heritage, our courage, our mettle, and grit that we will
stand idly by and permit the foolish and the stupid, who
work hand-in-hand with evil people in our nation, that we
will permit them to send us into eternal slavery and tyranny
as the world has never before witnessed?
Excerpt: You are a
fool if you do not believe that elements of the Left would
use force, if they could, to compel you to comply with many
of their edicts. In drafting healthcare reform, they use
the threat of financial fines, felony conviction and
prison if you refuse to buy health insurance!
How is that not only a
degree or two removed from a pistol to the head? We are
undeniably heading toward the same tyrannies known to
Russians, Germans, and the Chinese. It starts with
Liberalism, advances to Socialism, and ends with Fascism,
Communism, or some other tyranny…and death.
We have a
culture of people whose first response to a physical threat
is to dial 911, or worse, a lawyer. We have a nation of
people who will dump hot coffee on themselves, then sue the
restaurant – and win! We have a nation of educators
who suspend children for drawing a picture of a handgun or
for bringing a Boy Scout knife-and-fork kit to show and
We have a nation of
people so removed from the food chain that many would starve
to death if the local supermarket closed. We have a nation
of people who cannot truly grasp the hardships faced by most
of the people in the world every day, and as a result we
have a nation of people who have lost fundamental common
