Funny Way to pick up new customer

I m 19 so US Army recruiters have called and still call me. Today an army recruiter called my house to talk to me to see if I was interested in the military. I explain to him that I'm going to school and have a lawn care service. He starts asking me a lot of mowing questions and we spend a good time talking bout my biz. Long story short, he gets my cell number and says he ll call me because he wants an estimate. Kinda funny how I ended up " recruiting" him instead of the way it was supposed to be.

salesmen are the easiest to sell to as long as you have some salesmanship skills.

They like the game.

Salesmen never quit. He probably wants to get you in person to try and get you to sign on the dotted line.
