"WINNER WINNER....CHICKEN DINNER"!!!


Ted would be proud...................................................."the greatest sales force in the world".

Did he learn these skills at enhancement class or at a Spring Regional?

EDJ's defense, well he only wanted to get rid of an Indy who was trying to rape his clients...he tried to off someone who wanted to make more in commissions...

Hey....it could've been worse...at least he wasn't trying to sell no load funds

He's still in the Jones system, but I doubt this page stays up for long...

here's your man....

That's just classic...I can see a Jones broker offing himself, thought about it myself once or twice while I was there, but hiring someone to pop an ex-business partner!  Plus of course you all noticed that he didn't even have the cash to pay the guy upfront....

This one is really sad.

I know Jeff.

Went through the thing Jones does after 17 weeks with him and shared dinner at Ozzies. He was a hell of a good guy and a really good broker. He's a smart guy, knew his products and financial planning, knew his clients well, got the triple award that week and hit seg four in no time at all.  (Forgive me for forgetting all the terminology, but I left Jones at 37 mos and left all their corporate speak behind).

Don't know what happened to drive him to where he is today, but remember what Elvis taught: "Never judge a man until you've walked a mile in his shoes"

Elvis also said "Stay off of my blue suede shoes."   Not sure where that got anyone.

Are you saying there might be a good enough reason to justify trying to have someone killed?  Like maybe if his former partner had the nerve to actually leave EDJ?

Since we are all quoting Elvis, I thought this was appropriate:


Number forty-seven said to number three:
Youre the cutest jailbird I ever did see.
I sure would be delighted with your company,
Come on and do the jailhouse rock with me.
Lets rock, everybody, lets rock.
Everybody in the whole cell block
Was dancin to the jailhouse rock.
-Jailhouse Rock

Did he star in No Country for Old Men?

Apr 2, 2008 2:33 pm

I wonder if he used the "Hamburger" while negotiating the hit?

Apr 2, 2008 2:38 pm

.........  i just laughed out loud in my office.  kudos.

That is too funny!
He actually was great with the hamburger and all those phony things Sedric did so well in the training videos. (which I admire, but can't do for the life of me)

I wasn't justifying his actions.

It's just weird. The guy was in the calling cubicle next to me. He made more that week that week than I made that month. First in training room and last to leave. He was averaging $18K at PDP and hit Seg 4 in about a year and a half. If he kept up his trajectory (now almost four years out) he was probably at 300 to 400K. Why the hell would anyone so smart and talented do something so dumb.

You see Spitzer and you wonder the same thing, but this guy is someone whose card I kept and called for advice on.  whew.

The Koolaid made him do it....I don't know..maybe the expartner called him a "glorified vacuum salesman" and it just hit him wrong.  Maybe he called the Managing Partner an ass bandit...who knows....It would be nice if the Joneser could come on here and explain himself, so we could debate the issue.  Maybe its a Jones cult thing or he just went FREAKIN NUTS>>>>>

This beats all sheep shearers, gravestone sellers, garbage collectors, toilet cleaners gone EDJ FA's ! That doesn't include the multiple individuals that have been dead-heads at numerous corporations across the world with careers that span numerous fields (minus the rocket scientists!). Could it happen somewhere else at other firms?---doesn't matter and don't know/don't care...but it has ALL happened at EDJ! Poor Ted. Dang-he had no idea all would be lost in this generation. He probably was the only innovator in the company. He deserved more.

Apr 2, 2008 8:23 pm

That I agree with.  Ted Jones knew what he was doing.  Too bad he didn't leave an instruction book when he died.  It would have been interesting to see how he would have handled brokers leaving, since Jones' history started with a defection to go independent.

You guys are brutal.

 
Extremely entertaining...but brutal, nonetheless.
