HAPPY 2014

ENJOY THE NEW YEAR! They say that advice is the only commodity there is way to  much of. everybody has an opinion so what's one more?  The answer is found in taking the advice that's worth having. As in my last blog, I state that sales is a value exchange. You're taking the time to read this blog and in exchange I'm giving advice based on 41 years of experience in sales to make sure its valuable for you.

I'm not going to update it that often any more but I'll try to keep it at least quarterly. Let the advice sink in.  If you would have the truth about cars, go to the mechanic. If you want the truth about oil or gas, go to the engineer drilling the holes!  If you want the truth about the price hikes, go to your stations general manager and so on. Make sure the person on who's advice you are relying is competent to give the advice based on their experience. There is a story about a Veteran sports reporter with over 25 years covering basketball who was asked to write a book about it.  He got all excited and went through his journals and in a month had a fine novel length work. The editor sent it back saying it was full of factual errors. The journalist had it run against the top magazines in the industry and even the NBA . None of them could find a single fact wrong so the journalists demanded to know who had checked the book.  The editor proudly informed him it had been checked by the editors 15 year old son who had just made the varsity team. Lawsuits are still pending I'm told. 

Clearly there was a question here  as to who had the greater knowledge. Questioning is okay but get the answers from as proven a source as you can, okay?

 See you next time!

Time to Dance.

Hi: this is my first post since thanksgiving. I'm not sure how to continue this blog so I figured why not just ask you, the readers. What would you like my advice on? Getting published?  Business?  Sales?  Life lessons or what?   If I'm going to keep this blog going I need to know what you want to see in It! Otherwise I can just leave it up with the previous posts and see what happens and there is no point in updating this blog. Let me know what you want !  Have a great day!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hi: Around this time of year  folks usually look back  on the past year and start thinking on what they  did and what they are grateful for and what they might want to change.  I guess I'm joining the party this year.  I can honestly say  2013 has been one of the most incredible years of my life!  I've been hospitalized 5 times this year for health concerns and worked les hours per day on average than ever before, yet I've made twice as much in my business than I did when I worked 29 hours a day everyday for the entire year !  I've earned a Lifetime  Directory Listing in Covington Who's Who and a listing  in the Poets and Writer's Directory which has enabled me to triple My income for poetry events buy getting me foundation  funding.  Thanks to those 5 hospitalizations my health is better than ever and I'm actually a LOT happier about my life!    I hope the rest of the year goes this well!

My goals for 2014 include continuing this blog.  ( I bet you were thinking I'd forgotten to be grateful for having done so or that I might actually not be grateful for it at all weren't you? )   get healthy enough to go on tour and schedule some more seminars.  I'm also bringing back the Skysaje Enterprise Poetry Contest and the Working Title 2 Anthology to be culled from it. Watch for more info on  that in future posts.  Happy Thanksgiving!

I Guess This is "Next Time" Huh?

Hi again:  I'm glad you liked my advice in the last post and I hope it struck a cord with you too.  There seems to be a lot of folks thinking that everything should be FREE!  There's another old saying I'm going to use here :  NOTHING WORTH HAVING WAS EVER THAT EASY TO GET!   Would you really want it to be?  An honest days work for an honest day pay and that's the way things ought to be, shouldn't it?  Will you help get us back there?  Just share this blog and maybe buy a few of my books to share with friends. Maybe  hire me to help set up your business, career etc.  No pressure,  but I do make a living giving advice. Visit my web site at http://www.skysajeenterprise.com

and check out my services. You'll find my rates fair and I don't promise what I can't deliver!   Like I said last time, its Fame AND  Fortune these blog posts are the Fame side, Paying clients are the fortune side and I need both! Don't you? See you next post.

Thanks for the Support!

Hi again folks! This  time it's back to the advice.  The saying as I recall it is  Fame and Fortune or if you prefer, Sales and Marketing.  There is a lot of talk these days about the importance of social media and how it has revolutionized the business world and truth be told it has but not for the reason most people think.  There is another old saying that used to just apply to women and dating.  It was " Why should they buy the cow if they can get the milk for free? " 

Originally this was intended to illustrate that women should "save themselves for mairage" and not be so promiscuous as to be seen as undesirable as a life partner.  I look at this as a business concept too.  Think about it, If you make all your services freely available through You TUBE  or Facebook you are not only devaluing the service but you are literally giving those companies the right to give your services away free of charge forever so you never make a dime.  For the record, after a 41 year career I can state with certainty that marketing is the fame side of the business. Marketing gets your name out there and gets you noticed but never makes you a penny! IT IS NOT DESINED TO GENTERATE REVENUE FOR YOUR BUISNES! THAT'S WHAT SALES EXSIT FOR!  A sale is the act of exchanging value. your valuable products and serves in exchange for an agreed upon amount of value representation. Sometimes this is monetary compensation. Some times it is products exchange ( Ie: sell $50,000 of product you get a new car.)  this is the Fortune side and if you notice Sales comes first in the business version because it is entirely possible for the whole world to know who you are and yet still die poor!

Something to think about till next time. See you then

An Epiphany!

Hi everybody.   Thanks to those of you who attended My Birthday Bash this past weekend.  For those of you who didn't you really missed something! My poetic Brother Demetrious Foradas came in from Ohio for the event. I have not seen him since before his kids were born and he brought them to meet me.We all had a great time and knowing that D is a top level poet and his ex-wife is a highly trained professional dancer and their kids are over 10 years old. With that much training from their parents I figured "HOW COULD THE KIDS NOT BE TOP QUALITY PROFESSIONAL LEVEL ARTISTS THEMSELVES?" so I put them into the show too. D's son George actually did a great job at his first time on the mic.  His daughter Vivian got stage fright and didn't perform in the showcase but she DID do a dance routine at the Gallery One Fine Arts Venue which has a bi monthly series that I consider my "home base " here in Rochester, NY.  I was hoping to introduce them to the gallery owner while they were in town. While D talked with the gallery owner Vivian did a little Tap Dancing routine on the vacant stage as we waited. She was REALY  good! So I made a decision and closed the show with a dance routine hoping that since she was a dancer she might overcome her stage fright and join me in the dance. It never happened but her brother did join me.

As we closed up D. came over and said " Larry, I've been trying to get George to jump on stage like that  for over 6 years now! You did it in 5 minutes: that's incredible! I've got video of the dance and I'll put it on your computer as soon as we get home!"  Well, we fell asleep but D, George and Vivian and I  did get up at 3:00 a. m. on Sunday to put the Video on my computer . For some reason the video didn't transfer to the computer ,  but he WAS able to upload all the photographs he took for the event and promised to send me an e-mail with the video as soon as he got back from Canada which was there next destination on this trip.  We went back to bed and work up again at 8:00 A.M.
 ate blueberry pie for breakfast and took a "family photo" Including the three of them and my parents and myself. D. promised to send a copy of that too. It was the most incredible  experience of 

Thanks for the Birthday Present D, Gorge and Vivian! See you all soon!

Hi again!

Great news! I 've been invited to serve on a committee to lay the groundwork for the selection of a poet Laureate for my city.  Out of all the poets in the area they could have chosen, they picked ME and that leads me to this weeks post:
 No one will every ask more of you than you are capable of convincing them you can handle. This is not always positive. After sayings like these that exist:" No good deed ever goes unpunished. " " Careful what you wish for because you just might get it."     Les Brown teaches that the most valuable buried treasure is in a graveyard because so many die with their potential untapped.  To quote Les" YOU CAN'T GET OUT OF LIFE ALIVE! "  So why not see what you CAN BECOME  capable of while you on TOP of the ground? see you next time.

Thanks for the Support!

Hi again: It's that time once more. I'd like to thank folks who have enjoyed these posts so far and keep coming back!  This time I have bad news,  one of the comments on last weeks post has me thinking and I just might get a little poetic on you this time. Sorry about that!  Ready? Okay, here we go:

I've had life long issues with grammar and spelling. This comes from that fact that in the 8th grade my teachers actually switched me from English and had me follow a more vocational track to finish high school. Now it's just more economical to hire an editor than sit in a class room.  I am proud to say I'm picking up things from these blog posts. I have a potential client who has actually told me the ONLY reason they have not hired me is the spelling and grammar issue and I could have easily made both of us millionaires by now if we worked together.  Clearly this helped me "Get on the stick" and start working on the grammar issues. I have 3 new clients because of it too. So here's this weeks advice: IF YOU HAVE HOLES IN YOUR EDUCATION GET THEM PLUGGED AS SOON AS YOU CAN!  IT WILL TRIPLE YOUR INCOME AT THE VERY LEAST! See you next time.

Well, What Do You Think So Far?

Hi: I've been getting some good feedback on the advice in  this Blog. I'm very flattered that you seem to be enjoying it so much!  If you'd like to get a one on one consultation or pick up any of the books I have on the market ( I'll bet a lot of you didn't even know I've written 7 books  and had them available for purchase, did you?)  You can learn how to make these things happen at http://www.skysajeenterprise.com   Now on to this post::

I've told you the "Mule" Story and the " Subtract the pants. "  Story ( scroll through the previous posts on this blog if you have not read them yet.)  So I guess its time to reveal a secret. There  at two basic types of Sales  People:. those that want to help you get what you need and those that want to earn a commission.. This does not mean that those wanting to help are not in it for the money or those in it for the money don't want to help but Its just a matter of which orientation they have been trained to follow. There ARE A LOT OF SALES PEOPLE IN IT JUST FOR THE MONEY BUT MOST REALLY DO WANT TO HELP THE PEOPLE THEY SERVE BY SELLING.   The business does not survive if no one sells its products or services yet I hear a lot of business owners saying they don't want to come off "sounding like a salesperson"  and yet wonder why they are not making the revenue they feel they should be fror their business.   It  makes me wonder how many actual sales people they know. As for myself, I'm VERY  proud of the fact that I have been a Sales Professional for 41 years now, starting at the age of 6 when I helped my father with his direct marketing business ventures with companies like Amway , Shaklee and Herbalife .  I've worked with products an services ranging from Toner to Tooth Paste, Applesauce to Oil wells and  Power tools to Poetry.

It does not matter what you sell . The art of selling begins when you understand that what you're really doing is setting up a value exchange.  Usually the yardstick is the coin of the realm ( a burger at McDonald's  in exchange for $.99  a burger at Denny's  in exchange for $3.99 a new home in exchange for $150,000 and so on) but it never has to be monetary.  If you tell, you kids " do your home work and I'll make you your favorite breakfast" for example  what your offering is in fact a sales contract. You are exchanging the child's 'favorite breakfast for the act of putting in the effort on their school work. Like I said  it's not ALWAYS  about the money for the top Sales people. Sales is a learned Skill and can be taught relatively easily to those who want to learn. Once learned it can be applied to whatever industry you chose and most salespeople know this. If one situation doesn't work they can easily go  "down the street" to a competing firm and will most likely get a position or they can change industries.    One question before I go. after reading this post do you still think" Sounding Like a Salesman" should be seen in a negative light?  See you next post.

Wow! Okay here's another one!

I got some great feedback on the story last time and I'm extremely humbled that you enjoyed it so much. It's one of three stories I share with my clients

The " Mule" Story
Version by " Laughing" Larry Berger

A farmer goes into the tavern and gets drunk. When drunk, the farmers tongue likes to wag and he starts bragging about his smart and obedient mule. " He does everything I tell him to! He can count, he can read, he can dance, anything I tell him to."

So time passes and a well dressed young man comes up to the farmer . He says " I'm a banker by trade. I'll bet you $10,000 that you can't make your mule do a damned thing. You win, I'll cut you a check, I win your farm is mine what do you Say?" 

The Farmer Says" You're on!You got a car? Good, you drive! Anyone who wants to come as  a witness is welcome to follow us to the farm too. "  

A short while later the Farmer and the Banker and about half the taverns patrons and the tavern owner show up at the farm. The farmer leads everybody to the barn and opens the door  " There's  my mule . ain't he a beauty?"    Everyone comes in and looks at the Mule. the mule just stands there.

The farmer looks over in the corner, smiles. walks over and picks up a 2by4 and smashes it across the mules head so hard it breaks in half.  The mule shakes his head and looks the Farmer directly in the eyes. Then the farmer starts talking to the mule, he asks it to count, it does, he holds up a peace of paper with the words "walk in a circle"  on it. the mule looks at a minute then walks in a circle.  Thus proving the mule can read.  The farmer starts to whistle and the mule bucks and shakes his dead clearly dancing to the farmers music.   The tavern folk all applaud smiling. The farmer goes to the banker and says" Friend, I think I  just won our bet don't about you?  The banker takes out his check book and writes the check for $10,000. He hands it to the Farmer. The Farmer puts into his pocket and starts to walk away. The Banker stops him with a hand on his shoulder. the Banker says " Just tell me one thing, why did you hit the mule in the head with the 2by4?" 

The Farmer smiles " You know something, I've been pulling this on folks for 10 years now and your the first person who's ever asked why the 2by4.  Listen close now and if you comprehend what I tell you that $10,000 you lost in our bet will go down as your best investment ever. I've know for years now that my mule will do what ever tell him to BUT FIRST I HAVE TO GET HIS ATTENTION AND MAKE SURE HE'S LISTENING DON'T I?" 

And that's why I usually tell this story first. What do you think? I welcome your feedback. Don't forget to check out Guest Poet, Lynelle P. Posts on my other blog at http://poeticconversations.blogspot.com and my own web site at: http://www.skysajeenterprise.com too okay? See you soon!

Like the stories? Here's one more!

The "Subtract the Pants" story:

A young man comes home from college and says to his father "  Papa, you've helped me all my life and now I want to help you.  You sent me to Harvard and I just got my MBA, thank you very much just incase I haven't said it before.  I'm studying for my CPA Licence now and I'd like to help you by taking a look at your books if that's okay?"  The father wipes his eyes to hide his tears. " Zuch a good Zon I have!   How many childrenk vould vant to help da family now days?   Of course you can look over Da books Bubala! Dank you!"

So the young man takes his fathers hand and follows him down into the basement. They walk to a big black door and his father opens it and turns on the light.  The son's jaw his the floor. Inside the room are literally hundred of shoe boxes filled with receipts . Some don't even have tops on the boxes.  The son composes himself after a few minutes looks at his father and says" Gott in Hemel Popa! THESE are your books?  How do you even know if you turned a profit?

The father smiles a wise smile and with a twinkle in his eyes says " Zon its very zimple. Ven I got to dis gountry I had nothing but a spare pair of pants with me and nothing I could offer to anyone . I met your ma and we started the business and got married. Now we have twenty stores instead of just one , your sister got a PHD in creative writing und is now a State Poet Laureate and just married a doctor. You just graduated from Harvard and are studying for your CPA Licence. both you and your sister are still driving the 2013 Toyota Lexuses we bought for your birthdays last month, paying in cash for both. Now your job is very easy as I see it Zon. All you have to do is add up the shtuff I just mentioned, SUBTRACT THE PANTS and ANYTHING LEFT OVER IS PROFIT! "

Here's another littlle tidbit for you!

Hi folks: It's that time again! So here you go:

You'll hear a lot of folks saying " You need to think outside the box!" these days. Okay, quick show of hands here. Does anyone know what the box is?  Or what might be inside it? This gives me a bit of the "Hebe Gebe's" for the following reasons :

1. If you don't know what the box is, how can you possibly be expected to think outside of it?

2. You NEED  air , food , water and shelter. You might CHOSE to think out side the box or not.

3. If you are not fully aware of where it is not a conscious choice.

I have two stories on this that I'd like to share. One I call the " Ham story" the other I call the "River Dance" story.

The "Ham Story"  is first:

A young woman becomes a famous business person and does a talk show interview. One of the questions the interviewer asks her is " Okay,  have you ever cooked a ham? "  She answers "Yes, and I follow tradition and always cut the ends off."  The interviewer says "  Wait a minute , all through this interview you've stated you try to break traditions why do you keep this one?"  The woman says " Well, my mom did it that way all my life so I do it to please her. I'm not sure why she started  doing it."  The interviewer smiles and says " We've got some time left and I know your mom is here in the audience today after the commercials what say we bring her up and ask her?"The  woman says " "sure".   So after the commercial they bring up her mom and find out she was a successful business woman and a leader in the community too. The interviewer asks why she cut the ends off her ham too.  The mother says " Just like my daughter my mom always cut the ends off her ham and it became tradition.  All of a sudden an old woman in the audience starts hyperventilating and looks like she will pass out. The original woman being interviewed yells out " That's my Grandma!" Security comes over and gets her stabilized.  Then they bring her on the stage.  She says " I'm sorry  babies! I thought you knew, I've always cut the ends off the hams I've made because I have only one roasting pan in the house and if I don't cut the ends off the ham it won't fit! " 

Here's the "River Dance" version :

A Great Rabbi is on his last legs and he gathers his students for a final lesson. They are arranged from his top student to one who just barely "gets it".  The Rabbi nods his head and says  " Life is like a river." and falls asleep.  The last student says " I wonder what he meant by that?" The top  student replies " God in Hemel! He meant that life is like a river because it ebbs and flows and is ever changing."  The lowest student replys" I have zero interest in what that  Mamzer at the head of the line THINKS the Rabbi meant! I want to know what THE RABBI MEANT!"  So they gently wake the Great Rabbi. The top students Says " Great Rabbi. I'm sorry to disturb your rest but some of us are confused. What did you mean when you said " Life is like a river? "  The  Rabbi smiles and with a twinkle in his eye says " Okay, so maybe life is NOT like a river." and dies.

Please remember these stories for the next time you're asked to " Think outside the box."

Have a great day!  See you next time!

As promised, here's more advice.

I'll start with a quote from one of my favorite TV shows when I was growing up:

" You got  big dreams? You want fame? Well fame costs ! And right here is  where you start  paying!  IN SWEAT!"

There is a lot of truth in that, huh?  Remember the saying is " Fame AND Fortune!"  not just Fame or Fortune alone! It takes both to be a success in  life . Here's another expression " Sales AND Marketing"  you'll notice Sales come first and the first one you have to sell is yourself. Lets define the two okay?

1 Sales: The exchange between buyer and seller that occurs when BOTH are satisfied they have  received the full value they asked for and are expecting . Its not always about the money, Particularly with me. Money is just the easiest "yardstick"  you can count with. You can also use the metric system, algebra, or a spread sheet program as long as  you receive the full value you were asking for  Was it "worth it" for both of you? This is the purpose of Sales. This is the Fortune part!

2. Marketing: Getting the world to know you, your products and/ or services exist. Including any and all methods for doing so. This is the Fame part! As you can see from the quote above "fame costs!"

I'm probably going to ticked off a lot of folks with this line  but  even Salvation from JESUS costs.  I've heard many Christians tell me Salvation is a free gift . Don't believe the hype ( I say that a lot in these blog posts, huh?  Should I change the  blog title? Let me know what you think. ) There is a line where Jesus asks his disciples " Why do you call me Lord and yet do not do what I say?" There is a sales contract to becoming a Christian. In exchange for following his concepts and teachings  he will offer you Salivation from your sins and life eternal in the glory of heaven. You "buy"into it, you  become "Saved"  and you are  expected to act accordingly in your daily affairs or the contract is void.

I know a number of Christians who share this belief and they will all tell you that meeting their contractual obligations giving them the right to call themselves Christians is by no means easy
but they do it every day. Or do they?

Think about all this till next time okay?  Lynelle Paulick will be posting her work on the Poetic Conversations blog as my first "Guest Poet" for 2013. She'll be posting for the next 8 weeks too. click here to check out her works

 SEE YOU Next time!

Hi All:  There was a fantastic response to the first post here! Thank you for the vote of confidence! But so far nobody has left a comment on what advice they might like me to give. Like I said last time " It is extremely difficult for ME to condense 40 plus years of experience down into a few paragraphs with NO CLUE AS TO WHAT YOU WANT TO KNOW FROM ME! So please leave your comments for this blog, okay? Thanks !" That having been said, here's the advice for this time:

 I was at a workshop on success training and somebody mentioned having a goal of being free and I said I hate that word and its true!  I never got the chance to explain why so this will be my subject here this time. Once in a while you get lucky huh?

To being with, the word Free started as  a  shorten form of the word Freedom as in " Home of the Free and Land of the Brave."  I've never liked the concept! To become Free you must first have become imprisoned or enslaved in some way.  To become Free, action must be taken on the part of the individual!  To become free,. they must break their imprisonment in some way. This requires a great deal of effort and very often a high price. Yet in 2013 getting something free means receiving it without any cost involved at all doesn't it?  Don't believe the hype! Anything with having is worth the effort and energy it cost!  To become " The Land of the Free"  the colonist had to fight a revolution against the English Monarchy. People forget it took a LOT of blood shed  and a three year war! Not to mention the help of countries like France and Spain who could help the colonists deal with the ships that brought the huge numbers of  British Soldiers that were coming over from the mother country. People forget that the colonists were British  themselves right up till July 4th 1776   and that the leaders of what had become known as the Continental Congress spent 3 years fighting battles getting the colonies to fight together before the war actually started in 1773 .  And that the revolutionary war was  hard fought for 3 YEARS before the Declaration of Independence was written!   In 2013,  the bill is still being paid by active duty military, veterans and those who have died in all the wars over the last 220+ years since.

 Boy, talk about running up a debt !  I'll stop here for now  but unless you leave comments asking me to go in another Direction, I'll have a Part 2 on this at least next time !  Remember to check out my other blog too. Click here to go right to it. Feel free to check out my web site  as well. Click here for that one.  Last comment from me for this time. Again,   DON'T BELIEVE THE HYPE! FREE DOES NOT MEAN WITHOUT VALUE OR COST AND NEVER HAS!  See you soon!

Well, I Did Itt! What Do You Think?

Hi: I've mentioned that It was suggested that I start an advice blog. I've asked for feedback and been encouraged to "Go for it!" and a lot of other positive comments so here's the new blog. Feed back is vital to me on this one because I can't advise folks to do things they are incapable of because it might be confusing.  I'll try and follow what most folks call the " KISS method here but unless you leave comments I won't know how good I'm doing at it,OKAY? Let's get started.:

Advice number one: The expression " Those who do not learn the lessons of history are doomed to repeat them!" is  a warning but not the one you might think!:

The operative point is learn the lessons  !  Schools used to offer simpler lessons for "slow" or "retarded"  kids. Many graduated highschool, started buisness and proved they learned thier leasons by hiring the "smart" kids  to be their lawyers,accountants and such.  Remember. Andrew Carnegie was one of the most successful business men in American history and Funded many universities but never got past 5th grade himself. Tomas Edision failed math 4 times but look what happened to him!  Half the class graduates at the "bottom" but 9 times out of 10 It's those bottom graduates that rule the world ! Just to drop a few more names you might have heard of:  Abraham Lincoln and Sam Walton were both" "self taught", Nelson Mandela and Adolph Hitler got their education IN PRISON YET BOTH BECAME WORLD LEADERS! Mahatma Gandhi never went to "school" a day in his life! and there are hundreds more for another time. 

I'm sorry if I through you there throwing Adolph Hitler and Nelson Mandala together but that just leads me to number two:

Advice number Two: Learn the Lessons but let history make the Judgments!

If you ever see me at a performance you might hear me talk about the" Domino's theory of poetry."  I'll go into it in this blog at some point but for now here's the important part " I never promise "good" poetry! All art is subject to personal tastes and as my chosen form of art my poetry is no different! You will either like it  or you won't it simply is what it is!"   Adolph Hitler took Germany from Banrupcy and Ruin to being the world's first major Europian superpower and was only defeted by two others ( Namely Russia, and The US )  joining forces and ending up dividing the globe between them after he was defeted.  Hitler may have had policies that folks don't like but he was ELECTED BY POPULAR VOTE AND WAS RELEASED FROM PRISION SOLEY BECAUSE OF HIS POLICAL IDEAS AND ABILITIES TO RALY FOLKS TO HIS CAUSE. HE NEARLY RULED THE PLANET JUST 5 YEARS LATER!  So was he "Good" or "Bad"?   History has made its judgmet. Please learn the lessons before you make yours okay?  Don't just "cut him off" because  you don't think his methods were "good" !

I think that enough for now. Like I mentioned in my responce to one of the comments to whether or not I should do this blog, it's hard to condence the lessons learned  during a 30 year sales career, 15 years as a self employed buisnes owner and 40+ years of life experience into a few paragraphs  to do these blog posts! I've hinted at some posible futuer topics but what do YOU  want to know from me?

for a little more on possible topics please visit my other blog at Poetic Conversations, or check out my web site or my Linked in profile.  Let me know where you want to go next. See you soon!
