This assignment should not be to hard.

Get off the computer and head out of town until you see a place that sells seed or fertilize or farm chemicals.

Then talk to them. Most of them are pretty nice folkds.

Hope the kid figures it out.  In this day and age social skills are a rare commodity.  You just did him a favor if he heeds your advice.

Soon we are going to face a sales force that wants close a deal on a hand held device and that will be possible---------after they have established my trust.

I know of an insurance agent that says he has younger-aged clients that have found his agency online, signed up, and he never sees them. He can't believe the customer doesn't want to come in the office, meet him and be sure that everything is legitimate, you know. Nope, he says they would prefer to not have to come in. He says he may never meet some of these customers. So, it's happening.
