Football Player Barters For 50% Ownership In Team

NFL. But until that happens he�s staying in shape by taking

Population Forcing Big Worldwide Changes Ahead
A forthcoming book titled �Global Aging in the 21st
Century� reports that the world�s supply of working-age
people will soon be shrinking, causing a shift from surplus
to scarcity. About 11% of the world�s people are over
60-years-of-age at the moment. In the next 25 years that
will double, to almost a fifth, and 17% of those people will
be over 80.
In China 12% of Chinese are now over 60, and in two decades
there will be more than 29% I n that category. Brazil faces
a similar blow. Experts say that it will be very difficult
for countries that are just emerging from poverty to
suddenly face huge elder-care costs.
Coming soon: Within two decades we will see an era where
jobs compete for workers, rather than vice versa. If that
happens cheap labor will vanish.

In Barter There Are No
of the most valuable and often overlooked services a trade exchange
offers your company is that of a guaranteed payment on sales through
members of the exchange. Because purchases cannot be made without
trade dollars, and authorizations are required which protect you, so
you need never worry. Such protection from loss is a valuable safety
net you just don�t find in the cash world, where loss of money from
non-payment and bust-up scams often bruise the business owner.
scam operation is subtly designed to snare the unwary business
owner. Typically, the new customer buys a small amount of
merchandise then slowly increases the amount purchased. The operator
pays his bills up front, so that the merchant will extend him more
credit � 30 days, possibly 60.
Finally the customer increases his order into the
thousands-of-dollars. Even though that�s a stretch for the business
owner, it�s considered a good bet because the customer has an
impeccable history of paying on time. Unfortunately, it�s at this
juncture that the customer leaves town or files for bankruptcy, and
the merchant never gets paid.
This decades-old practice is known as a bust-out, so named because
the business seems to bust or disappear. The moral of this story is
two-fold. Protect your company when dealing in the cash world �
check out the history of new businesses wanting credit extended, and
be cautious in the amount extended.
addition, work through your trade exchange for extra sales. Ones
that are guaranteed to be safe!

Methods Are Extremely Important!
Because communication is so important you must do so in ways that
move your agenda forward in a positive direction, while at the same
time meeting your customers needs.
following are typical responses (italics) versus those with a
positive direction (bold):
I can�t do that.
Let me tell you what is possible.
I�ll try to make it to the meeting.
I will be at the meeting at 8 a.m., and will call in case
something comes up.
Why don�t we meet next Thursday?
Let�s meet on Thursday.
We can fill your order, but it will be late.
We plan on meeting your deadlines. Of course, we�ll let you know
in advance if we change the shipping method.
Don�t forget to send me your order form.
Please remember to send me your order form.
Your attitude and honesty when communicating are clearly important,
creating a more positive connection with the customer. A connection
that will be mutually beneficial throughout your relationship.
For Greater Payoffs Think Like The
Professionalism is measured by a commitment to
excellence. Yes, professional athletes compete, but the real joy
they take comes from excelling...not from beating the competition.
In other words, for a professional the race is
not between competitors but toward the perfect execution of an act.
They continually compete against their best-ever efforts. To get the
best from your efforts try thinking the same way.
