Dr. Seuss has always been a favorite artist and entrepreneur of mine. His creativity and imagination is outstanding. Additionally, growing up in Springfield (his hometown) provided an extra connection. I’ve found that his work inspires me to grow and be more creative in my business and sales strategies.
I’m a big fan of Green Eggs and Ham, in particular. After reading the story to my kids years ago, I found myself making connections to sales. The book is a perfect example of how persistance and belief in one’s product will get the sale and make a happy customer. No matter what your product, as a salesperson you want people saying, “I do so like green eggs and ham! Thank you! Thank you, Sam-I-am!”
The following are some of my favorite quotes by Dr. Seuss. I hope you’ll take them through your day and be inspired to do remarkable things.
