A Few More Jokes
Seamus Parfrey

 By Seamus Parfrey  


Joke 1:


The young accounting graduate, fresh out of college and of course knowing everything, applied for his first job.


The prospective employer asked him what starting salary he was looking for. "Oh, around €50,000 a year, depending on the benefits package."


"Well, how does this sound?" said the employer. "Five weeks annual leave, €80,000 salary with 20% performance bonus, paid expenses to overseas conferences every year, home telephone and mobile reimbursed and a company car replaced every 20,000 miles, say a Mercedes convertible."


The graduate sat up straight and tried not to look excited. "Wow. Are you kidding?"


"Yeah. But you started it."



Joke 2:


A fellow has been learning to be a balloonist and takes his first solo flight. Unfortunately the wind gets up, he is blown off course and is forced to land. He is in a field close to a road but has no idea where he is. He sees a car coming along the road and hails it. The driver gets out and the balloonist says, "Can you tell me where I am?'.


"Yes, of course", says the driver. "You have just landed in your balloon and with this wind you have obviously been blown off course. You are in the on Jim Murphy's farm, 12.5 miles from Macroom. Jim will be plowing the field next week and sowing wheat. There is a bull in the field. It is behind you and about to attack you."


At that moment the bull reaches the balloonist and tosses him over the fence. Luckily he is unhurt. He gets up, dusts himself off and says to the driver, "I see you're an accountant".







Increase Your Revenue
Seamus Parfrey

By Seamus Parfrey



There are just three ways to increase your revenue.


Increase Customers

One of the best ways to improve your sales is to get new customers. However acquiring new customers can be difficult as you may have to undertake prospecting and marketing programmes. This can be expensive in both time and money.


Increase Your Prices

Many businesses increase their revenue by raising their prices even after allowing for lost customers. In the current climate this may give you worries but if you undertake an analysis of your business you should find pricing opportunities.
