I'm trying to summon up the courage to begin cold calling to kick-start my business.
I have read all the great inspiring threads/posts from John,Warrior Ben, Kaniganj and everyone else who have been there and done it - but I just freeze when I pick up the phone!
I have also joined johns brilliant Forum and read everything there yet still I find myself petrified at the thought of speaking into the lump of black plastic in my hand - it just seems so stupid to be so scared!
My script is short and to the point (appointment setting for google places) but I have suffered from a slight stammer since i was a kid and even though it doesn't notice on the phone too much im still struggling..I desperately want to do this and I even sit there picturing the difference it could make to my family but I just can't seem to "Suck it up and do it" ... Beyond frustrating!
Anyway, just wanted to share my pain and ask for a hefty nudge in the right direction...
Hopefully (and with a little help from my Warrior friends) I will be able to use this thread to detail my struggles and successes..
Thanks and all the best..
