“People purchase from people that they know, like, and trust.” – Rob Cressy
He took comedy not to become a comedian. He wanted to learn the skills instead and apply it to his marketing and published content.
Humor in Business
Being a business owner exposes one to sales. Humor takes the edge off a conversation. As Rob explains, it cuts through like a Japanese knife.
“You don’t have to be in a specific mood to laugh and get the humor.” – Rob Cressy
