There is an old expression taught by a long term business master . He would note that i learned a long time ago when the guys from head office were lying to me . How could i tell – “their lips were moving”.
In the same way it can be said that figures ( or statistics) don’t lie …. but liars figger. Simply put another way by Woody Allen . A stock broker / mutual fund salesperson / financial ( ?) planner is a professional who invests your money till its all gone.
Yet in business ( or politics) its not so much the story …. but rather how you tell it. Take for example the public relations guru James – “Spin Doctor“ James Carville who recently expressed his concern on the President and his hopes for the upcoming November election – not on its effect on the US economy or real people suffering but on the story – or wrong story being told ( at least in his mind and expertise ) by President Obama. Its not the substance being sold or told but rather which tale to tell to fool people.
I guess we should all be out there job shopping none the less. And if not in Washington DC where the real sharks are- perhaps up in Winnipeg or Manitoba Canada where the job shops and job banks might be a tad tastier and easier.
Yet it can be said that little is as peruasive as a long collumn of facts and figures. All in all these compliations can be just so complex as to be next to be impossible to follow. A real bluffer’s tale none the less. Yet no one – is about to take issue with facts – or so called facts – especially when they are backed up with by computations , equations, exptrapolations , extractions of roots – and all in the form of a polished Microsoft Powerpoint presentation or presentations. It might be a wiser idea not to rent executive temporary office space in after all. Perhaps one should check first on commercial office rental office rates in & none the less.
