Plato knew best

I'm up over 40 Chiefs now and seeing huge demand for revenue generators of all types, whether they be VP's of Sales, VP's of Marketing, VP's of BusDev, CEO's etc. etc. The world is your ticket if you can sell things today, but I came across this quote that gives us a little historical taste of humble pie I found amusing.

I always assumed that entrepreneurs are heroes and that Athena, the goddess of wisdom, was the protector of heroes, so an appropriate monikor for my company. Appearently another Greek, Plato, felt differently:

"In well-ordered states, storekeepers and salesmen are commonly those who are weakest in bodily strength and, therefore, of little use for any other purpose"...Plato
