A few people have only known the real Erdman because he is often used as an example in the Sales Training so much that soon a module could be named after him and we can just say bye to future Nancy Friedman exercises.
“Guys, think of how much money you’ll be making, you’d end up like Erdman who is earning blah… blah…”
“Erdman is the kind of seller who’d instantly close his sales with a flourish and a $10,000 minimum check up on his sleeve.”
“Think how Erdman sells – he talks to his authors like they are his second family. “
His authors are legendary and so is his laugh that rings across the floor. You know – kind of like a cross between a chipmunk and a hyena on asthma attack. Every time Erdman is summoned to training, people would not be looking at a man eager to help them get to the sales floor but they would be ogling at a huge dollar sign in its shining, shimmering, and splendid violet glory.
FYI: There is more to him than just a dollar sign. He also has had Basic Packages, the $30 surcharge and yes, the $9.99 shipping fee. Chalk it up to good karma but how generous Edna Carroll is to Erdman is how magnanimous Erdman is to his friends.
A few can only get away with teasing him *coughmecough* and he rarely chooses his crowd. Unless if your net rev is past $5000, then yes, he would not be choosy because you are automatically his friend and that alone doesn’t give him a choice.
We will forever miss this guy who we think is as the same race as Mariah Carey and Leona Lewis considering the fact that if his color was as white as the Scuba diving picture he was on, a mere, “OH, REALLY?!” and a shocked face with palms slapped to his cheek will make us think otherwise.
Erdie, you are, a good influence ON EVERYONE and everyone has to account for that. Your FRIDAY DEVOTION spam will be missed and so are your heartfelt congratulations whenever someone makes a sale – modest at that. Our halcyon days of Midtown breakfasts, scuba divings, island hoppings and momentous lunches will not end here.
Remember Mama’s words, “It’s not over until its over!”
