Did You Expense The Lap Dances?

We Live in a World That Requires Revenue is, by a considerable margin, the top post on this blog.  I’m trying not to take it personally.  I laughed harder than anyone when I first saw it, especially since I’ve been using the “You can’t handle the truth” metaphor in my presentations and articles for many years.

So, last Monday I received this email.  I was thrilled!

Hi Dave,

My name is Chris Pappas and I believe you want to know where my Youtube video “A Few Good Expenses” came from.

I have been in sales most of my life and we decided to put the skit together to add a bit of humour to a sales conference a number of years back.

As you can probably tell by the quality acting, I’m definitely not an actor!!   🙂

The only reason I put it on Youtube was so that my friends and family could see it for a laugh as the file was too large to send via e-mail.

Since then the attention has been ridiculously complimentary. So much so that NBC, News America, Telstra, HP, amongst many others across the globe, have asked for the hi-res file to play at their sales conferences and the like. Needless to say I obliged.

Anyway, there’s the history mate.

I can’t wait to see your next video, Chris.
