Hi good day guys, I'm TakeactionIM, 18 years old and about to start up an offline business offering web design services to sbo's (go figure).I'm making this post so I can hold myself accountable publicly because to be frank, i've been bullshitting lately.

A recently took up a job at a call center selling merchant services to solely see what the experience was like.I was making about 200 calls a day, setting up appointments so the closers could go out and do their thing.I quit today after I felt my research was done and am about to start up a small business.

I've bought and read some books on selling:

- Selling Fearlessly: A Master Salesman's Secrets For The One-Call-Close Salesperson

- Smart Calling: Eliminate the Fear, Failure, and Rejection from Cold Calling

- The 10X Rule: The Only Difference Between Success and Failure ( HIGHLY recommend this book, holy sh*t, talk about paradigm shift.I got both the book and the audiobook, you would do well with just the audio book, try audible.com)

* Also read john's report and listened to the audio series, also bought an audiobooks of The Greatest Salesman in the world and listened to it a few times, powerful stuff.)

As far as the web design, I've been doing web design ever since I was about 14 and when I decided to start offering this service to sbo's I procrastinated by reading more books (learned jQuery and PhP, currently learning how to code a Wordpress site) and then realised I was just wussing out and that I knew more than enough to be able to offer this service.

As far as goals go, I want to start writing them as I go along, I literally just want to start calling and get my feet wet before I focus on too much of anything else and get stuck in my head (Have been wanting to start this business since I was 16) like I did before.My sole goal for tomorrow (2/4/2013) is to make 100 phone calls.By tomorrow I will have my long term goals and actionable step to achieve them.Will keep you guys, and myself...posted
