Schizophrenic Sells Deal Number 10


This picture is my personal approval of journaling and writing to grow your life.

The point of this post though is to inform you that I’ve made another sale.

This brings my count to 10 that I know of.  It’s possible there have been sales even though they didn’t say my name when they ordered.  In some ways it’s difficult to track what’s your sale.

But I’ve been keeping a count of my sales, and so far it looks like after I found out from one of the managers I had made another sale, I’m up to 10 now.  She said that they called and wanted to place a $200 order, but in working with the customer, the manager said she was a little crazy.

The manager said that she clearly took the order for a veggie tray, and the woman said she thought she had ordered a fruit tray.  The manager said the customer was just a little off. I figure the quality of the customer will increase over time, as I get better.

So it’s a celebration.  I’m having green tea and writing this blog post.

Really I can’t tell you what it’s like to be on the phone with a customer actually taking the order, the people at the stores do that.  I just send them to the store and they are served by the associate.  I can tell you what it’s like to do the work.

I was out today for instance.  Selling.  One of them told me no, they didn’t want the food, and on the way out there were wasps blocking me.  I had to proceed slowly with caution.

There were also dragonflies.

I just walk in and offer them lunch.  Two box lunches to be exact, one ham and one turkey.  Both made that morning.  On top of the sandwich they get a side, a drink, a cookie, and a pickle.  They get two of those, and a fold with some ordering forms, lunch specials, and coupons if they want to come into the store.

I park at a large office building or business park.  Today it was a business park.  I took 4 bags and 4 folders and started walking.  I went into the first place.

They wanted the lunches.  They were nice.  I went to the next place, they didn’t eat meat.  Then I gave away the 2nd.  And so on.

A couple people told me they didn’t want it, but for the most part everyone accepted and was friendly and happy to see me.

One particular place, a skin therapy place, the people were very friendly and happy to see me.  They were both women, and we got along great.

On top of getting delivery orders I’m also getting foot traffic.

Just today, I did a followup to a real estate agent, and he said he was going to come in for lunch today.  It just so happened I was in the store he was in, and I got to thank him on his way out.  It was great.

I did hear something like his voice after I was off.  I was outside.  I couldn’t make out what he was saying but his message seemed like it was saying I was good.

I love it when the schizophrenia makes me feel good.  Like I’m good.  Schizophrenia can really be a blessing.

And you can stay thankful for your blessings everyday when the voices start telling you you are going to die.  Thankful for another day you can live life. Another day you can raise your family, you can work your job, you can work on your goals, you can try and get a little better, another day.

What I’ve learned is that we are all going to die.  You can be certain that you only have so much time left.  That being said, with respect to that, it makes you want to live more fully today.  It’s a special trick you can learn from schizophrenia, a deep gratitude for life. You’ll need that gratitude when your selling.

For me it comes easy because I’ve landed a job that pays me whether I sell or not.  I do sell, and I will probably be getting bonuses, but right now it’s my hourly.  Not everything I do is sales activity, I do work in the store helping the customers or doing prep work.  I enjoy working with the food in the store, and I enjoy doing the sales work.  I enjoy getting results.  Sales.  More sales.  Many sales.

That’s where I’m going, many sales.  Who knows, I might even be able to drastically increase my income in my current job.  I’d like a 6 figure a year job, but considering my inability to work for several years, I think staying where I am is a good move.

They like me where I work.  They’ve promoted me.  I do things no other associate in our 3 store company does.  My advice to you if you hear voices, is get a job with people you can work with.  People who will love working with you, and that you can love working with.  I know it’s possible, because I’ve found such a place.

Even if you don’t make that much money, you hear voices and you can do your job.  You bring home SOME bacon.  Being a productive member of society is much better than just staying at home only working on your dreams.  It’s much better to work and then have your side hustle, that is IF you CAN work.

So my message to you, if or if you don’t hear voices everyday, is to work.  If you want your line of work to be in sales, then sell.  It’s hard for normal people to sell, your going to have to work extra hard and extra smart just to do the same job a normal person would do, but you can do it!  Just find that right place for you, and work your tail off.

Also if you want to get a free ebook on how to sell when you hear voices you can get it on the home page.

A New Ebook And Possibly An Email List

Yes!  I’ve just finished my first ebook.

It’s a 12 page short book on how to get a raise at your job!  I wrote it from the heart, I know I can write more, but I wanted to get something going right now, so on to better things!

But I’m thinking of starting an email list, do you think you would want to join?  I think I’m going to give my ebook away for free if you put in your email address.  I have to figure the logistics out, and get myself to pay the 20 dollars a month for AWeber but that’s about it.  It should be up any day now.

But I wanted to write this post to tell you I finished my second book.  The first book I wrote took me a year, and the second took me probably 4 hours.  It’s a short read but hopefully it’s inspiring and I hope to write much more like it.  I think I could charge 5 dollars for it, but I think the privilege of having your email address is worth 4 hours of my time.  Besides it adds value, and I want to add value to as many people as I possibly can in my life.

That’s the way I think it should be for everybody.  Add value to a massive number of people and you’ll be fine.  In fact, you’ll be great! and everyone will want to follow your example.  There’s examples of that all over the world.

But I wanted to write this to give you a sneak peak at the book and to let you know what you’ll get if you download it.

First you’ll get the introduction.  Why I wrote the book.  Then you’ll get the three steps to increasing your pay at your hourly job.  I’m a prime example that it can be done no matter what your going through in life, whether your a schizophrenic or someone who is just out there…. there’s hope.  You can do it too.  I call on you, no matter what your going through, to break free and do the thing that gives you your power.  No matter what your going through, you can be a success at your hourly job.  And that success will help transform other parts of your life as well.  There’s really no end to the improvements.

I tend to write very long posts, so I’m just going to keep this one short… just like my first ebook that’s only 12 pages long… but I’m going to leave you with a video.  This video outlines the book and talks about the three steps to increasing your income.  I hope you enjoy it!

My wife came home before I could finish the video, so I don’t get to go over step 3, which is to grow.  The best part!  But I still wanted to share this brief video so that you could better know me.

I am a family man, and I had to take care of my family… but keep checking back on this blog for updates and I’ll be sure to add value in here for you and everyone else that reads this.  I’m so excited!

Will write soon,

Sales Success And Getting An Hourly Rate

So they pay me mileage, for what I drive, and they pay me hourly… 11 dollars an hour.  There’s talk about what they call bonuses, but I know it only as commission.  And when your getting hourly plus commission you know your in big business.

And I wanted to write this to you to report my progress and to notify you of the changes this website will be experiencing over the next few days. You see, I want to write about sales now.  I’ve written some about schizophrenia, and I want to move beyond my illness now.  It’s a chemical imbalance in my brain, and not a result of the bad things I’ve done in my life, or so my grandmother says.  I spoke with her on Friday, yesterday, Feburary 10th, 2017.

And I told my grandmother, just as I’m telling you now, that I went out for 3 days and came back with 2 orders!  One was for 450 dollars!  It was only my first full week working the sales job and already I have orders!  I haven’t even gotten my button up shirts, business cards, or name tags, and already I have sales!

This is obviously great news for me, my company, and everyone else involved.  Somebody gets to eat some food they can love, and I get to build a relationship!  How wonderful it is when your work pays off!  This should be an inspiration to schizophrenics and those who want to make it in sales that it can be done!  And it can be done no matter what your going through!  You may have to eat it for a while, working endlessly and getting nowhere, but keep plugging at it and you’ll get there.  I’m living proof.

Now I don’t want to get ahead of myself.  It’s only two sales.  I don’t want to be writing about building long term sales success after making only 2 sales, but I sure am a testament that if you work hard, read books, and keep a journal your going to do well.

And read the right books.  Things that are going to inspire you to take action in the direction of your financial dreams.  Your relationship dreams.  I want to sell but personally I think it would be awesome if I could set up a passive income stream from an ebook and this website that would be totally automatic!  Do the work once and it pays you for the rest of your life!  While you sleep!  And all the better the good reviews. And if you do your job as a writer then there will be no shortage of good reviews.

And I don’t want to bring politics into it but in Donald Trump’s inauguration speech he said at the end that “God was protecting us”.  And I believe that’s true.  I also believe he’s not only doing it for the USA!, but God is protecting the entire world, and every person in it.  There’s no doubt bad things can happen, but it’s about taking the lessons of those bad things an applying them to one’s life.  That’s about as political as I get.

And when I hear voices, because I do hear voices, voices that tell me their scared, that their mom is scared, it makes me think of how me selling might make someone fear for my life.  It can be a scary world out there, with lots of crazy people…(but most of them good, and interested in forward progress) and these people are concerned for me.  I just tell them I am fine and press on with my day.  That’s the way I know how to do it, I’m a machine.

But that’s really all I wanted to tell you.  I made one sale for 450 dollars and then I made another for 7 box lunches in the same day!  It worked!  I haven’t made any sales in years, and this is my first time back in the game.  I seek to improve and make more sales!  I think you can get an hourly job and work your way into sales! Even if your schizophrenic! Let your bosses trust you and you will get the best jobs!

My bosses are even talking about getting me a desk in the office!  And they were talking about giving me a raise to 11 dollars an hour and they did it.  That’s a lot especially if your getting bonuses.  And there’s talk about getting me bonuses!  I’m so happy I’ve been telling everyone about my success and celebrating it every chance I get.

Really though, now that I’m finishing this post and it’s Sunday, and I have to go back to work tomorrow, the celebrating is coming to an end.  The work will never stop and neither will I.

If you liked this post, and would like to share your sales success, please leave a comment.  Let me know what you liked best about this post and tell me how you think I might be able to improve it.  I would love your feedback.  Also tell me about any successes in sales that you’ve had.  That would be great to begin a kind of community that supports each other.

Thanks for reading!
