Do Mo Bros Make Better Salespeople?

Have you noticed more men with mustaches these days? Especially during the month of November? Oops, I mean Movember! This organization raises awareness and funds for mens’ health issues, specifically prostate and testicular cancer.

Last week in my training class, I noticed lots of  Mo Bros.” It got me thinking about the qualities and traits that men with mustaches have, and how these qualities are shared by Sales Superheroes:
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
1. They stand behind their beliefs: Making a visible, public commitment to raise awareness for mens’ health is really putting your money where your mouth is!
 
2. They are involved team players: Mo Bros are not only making and sharing a common social statement, at the end of November they throw a giant shaving party.
 
3. They are culturally connected: This international movement is all over the world — from Ireland, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, Spain, the United Kingdom, Israel, South Africa, Taiwan, and to the US — and already raised $174 million worldwide.

4. They create strategic partnerships: In  2010 and 2011, Movember partnered with TOMS to create limited edition Movember shoes for participants.

5. They believe in the F-U-N factor: In 2011, The world’s largest sandcastle Mo was built on Bondi Beach, in SydneyNew South Wales.

6. They are in demand and respected: Men with mustaches are perceived to be more attractive, industrious, creative, masculine, dominant, and mature by both men and women.

7. They get hired: Men with facial hair were rated higher by their employers on aspects of masculinity, maturity, physical attractiveness, dominance, self-confidence, nonconformity, courage, industriousness, enthusiasm, intelligence, sincerity, and general competency.

    Perhaps the reverse could be true – do good sales people make better Mo Bros? In any case, I find point #7 (above) encouraging! It sounds like a study that every man should have a copy of, just in case. Is that data referenced somewhere on the Movember website?
