World’s Oldest Animal Dies

176 years old! 330 pounds! Harriet, a giant tortoise and the star attraction at Australia Zoo in Queensland died of a heart attack this past week.

Harriet made it into the Guinness Book of World Records as the world’s oldest living animal. However, a tortoise who died in India earlier this year, Addwaita, was said to be about 250 years old, according to the Calcutta zoo where he had been living since 1875.

176? 250? The great thing about great salespeople is that their longevity is a trait that means three things;

1) You plow through any economy, good or bad, because your skills keep you above the earnings of common sales reps.

2) You never have to retire, unless you choose to.

3) You can sell anywhere you want. Rather be on a beach, in the mountains, in the locale of your dreams? Go for greatness at selling.

Slow and steady wins the race. Find a mentor, find sales training, be regimented in your daily selling life and you could leave a legacy of longevity and success in the world of selling.
