when SIA was still in Vegas I went to one of the seminars they put on for various reasons

he than held up a watch (mickey mouse, i think) "we sell more of these at dollar value in a year than your entire industry in the same time period and at a greater margin"
pretty humbling for a young rep looking to make the big money
