What’s the scariest Halloween costume you can imagine this year? The villain from this year’s hot horror movie? Zombies, vampires, the devil? Fat Elvis? Not for me.
The most terrifying specter that might show up on my doorstep begging for a Snickers bar is … The aggressive, pushy salesman. (Shudder.) Do you feel the same? Does selling make you feel … dirty?
You’re not naïve, of course. You know that somebody has to put up a website, write an advertisement, or pound the pavement to drum up sales, or you won’t have enough money to keep the lights on.
But can’t it be somebody else?
