Donald Trump clearly thinks that his business advice is the greatest, classiest, and most in-demand advice in the world. And yet, to us, his obvious how-to-get-rich tidbits doled out during every episode of The Apprentice (NBC, Thursdays, 9 p.m.) seem a little Economics for Dummies… for Dummies. Can you tell the real Trumpisms from the fake ones on this list?
1. People go over budget, they’re in big trouble.
2. Everyone loves a winner. Be a winner, and you’ll win. But you start losing, then you’re a loser.
3. Always count your change. That nickel short might not seem like much, but it adds up.
4. People have to respect you, or you cannot be a leader.
5. You have to find the right price. And if you don’t, big trouble.
6. Buy a classy wallet. You whip out one of those Velcro numbers, I don’t care how much cash you’ve got inside, that deal ain’t closing.
7. ”Thinking outside of the box” is something that is very much of a cliché, but if you want to be successful, that’s how you’re going to have to do it.
8. ”Who let the dogs out?” is something that is very much of a cliché, but if you want to be successful, that’s who you have to let out.
REAL: 1, 4, 5, 7; FAKE: 2, 3, 6, 8
