Great story - I love it!

To pick a service, the Marines have what is 
called "CAN DO" attitude - they have a great 
history of achievement.  If all you have is 
"CAN'T DO", you won't.  Certainly one must know 
the fights to pick and those to 
skip.  Fortunately there are a few who didn't listen to that.

Ask just about any successful person how he made 
it.  You probably will hear the many times they 
were defeated before succeeding.  So keep on 
looking for a way to achieve your dreams!  Can't will not.  Quit never does.

Amsat needs a professional salesman!  You know 
how many times a salesman is told "NO" or no 
thanks?  If you just quit no sales will ever be 
made!  BTW I should say "sales person".

So think "CAN DO" and keep looking and asking and selling!
