We Love Enthusiasm — Even if it Doesn’t Always Work!


This clip from the Chris Farley movie “Tommy Boy” shows what can happen when you’re just a little overanxious to sell something you believe in. Let’s face it, his approach hardly worked, but you’ve got to admire the spirit … and his use of story telling as part of a sales pitch! It appears here as tribute to our own Rob Trecek who, like Farley, attended Marquette University in Milwaukee, but unlike the late comic is having a distinguished career in sales. He did, however, have the distinct “honor” of having Farley pour beer all over him.
