Does “Labor Day” have much meaning for you?

Frankly it never has for me.

Other than it being one of our American Summertime 3-day weekends, it isn’t really significant to me.

And I suspect that I am not the only one who feels this way.

Cause Labor Day is supposed to be all about “the worker”.

Well, I have never identified with being a “worker”.

I am going to say a few things here, that are going to tweak some people, but they gotta be said.

Workers aren’t the ones who make things happen.

Entpreneurs, business people, and sales people are the creative people that give the spark and the fire that make things happen.

Without sales and business people starting things, there would be no companies.

There would be no jobs.

So don’t celebrate the “worker” today.

Celebrate yourself.

Celebrate your spark, your drive, your creative energy that gives jobs, money, and energy to everyone else in the world.

There isn’t going to be a National Sales People’s Day. Or an International Business People’s Holiday.

Aint gonna happen bubba.

So instead, celebrate yourself for yourself because you are the spark that gives ignition.

Sell with Pride,
