Maybe we overpromoted it? Or maybe we didn't promote it properly.
If you're going to run a successful offline business (many of you were hoping to make big money online), the problems are different but you have to jump over the obstacles.
Cold calling time is only a short amount of time that YOU have to spend on the phone to find out what works to fill your bank account. You may be uncomfortable doing it but you only have to do it long enough to figure out what works. It's the bottom of the ladder.
Why do the multi billion dollar companies force their outbound employees to follow a script? or modified script? They've spent millions of dollars to find out what works.
Many of us don't have money to get others to figure this out for us. We need to do it ourselves. Every phone call that you make, look at it like a miniscule amount of time that you will spend on the phone to grow your bank account and have a PROVEN SYSTEM to pass along to sales staff who will make the money for you.
Now, after a small, short amount of pain, you will have more confidence. You'll be a REAL business owner.
My question to you is "Can you suffer through a couple weeks of cold calling to set up a system of recurring business income for yourself?"
