Lyrics from the hit song “Call me the breeze” by Lynyrd Skynyrd (just putting this here to avoid any copyright law infringement…).
When I think of salespeople, in any industry, this song often comes to mind because I feel that way too many people are solely in it for themselves… they just want to make a quick buck, even at the expense of others.
