I'm winning the merchandise contest with nearly $900 in sales. Ironically, the total sales for the contest are just over $3,500. You do the math on how much the other girls I work with suck at sales. Or suck at trying. Or don't try at all. Regardless, I'm still insanely competitive. It's just my way.
While I'm ahead of second place by just over $100 (do some more math on how much the other girls REALLY suck at sales) I probably won't be winning. It's not that I'm pessimistic, it's that I'll be missing ten days of the contest at the end of the month. Ten days is an awful lot of selling no matter how much I try to pad my sales now.
So where will I be for ten days of December (and ten days of January as it were)? I'll be being fabulous in Europe of course. Oh did I forget to mention that? Yeah, I'm spending my holidays in the Netherlands. I'm not mad about it.
So I might not win - though I'll still likely place - but I have to say I'm not too concerned about it. Europe is an awful good reason not to win, after all most of the girls are losing due to laziness. At least I'll lose because I'm on a different continent. That's a real reason.
Now who wants to send me $50 and I'll sell you a gift card?
Oh and don't worry. I'll be auto-posting some of my "greatest hits" while I'm gone in addition to *trying* to post some awesome posts from abroad. If only there were a Hooters in Amsterdam.
