When I got into my antique clock restoration business my late granddad gave me a bit of advice. He said if you want to drive away customers bad mouth your competition. He said I don't care how bad they are or how shoddy their work is never bad mouth them. He was absolutely right. My competition started bad mouthing me as a high priced thief doing subpar work. Well needless to say he is gone and I have more work than I want.
I agree with the others and hate when you see it on TV and everywhere else. If I go into a store and they start bad mouthing XYZ store down the road I leave.
Retirement: That’s when you return from work one day
and say, “Hi, Honey, I’m home – forever.”
To succeed in life, you need three things: a wishbone, a backbone and a funnybone.
