My first cold call was 19 years ago. I still remember like it was today.
I was really good in sales at the time and could talk to any stranger, belly to belly. However, I was a blubbering idiot on a phone call with someone that I did not know.
It started with anxiety long before I ever picked up the phone.
When I finally found the courage to make that first call, My hands were shaking so hard that I thought I would drop the phone.
Most of the time, no one would answer. And I was actually relieved when I got the chance to leave a voicemail. I counted that as a win, even though I knew that it wasn’t. Those people never called back.
When I finally got someone on the other line, I didn’t know what to say. Or even worse, I would stumble over my words and then end the call abruptly.
I didn’t want to go on, but I looked at all my colleagues who were getting business.
I wanted to be just like them, just without the cold calls.
I continued calling day after day because I felt like I had no choice. Then one day I actually felt comfortable and was getting some traction.
But the thought of spending hours on the phone to talk to a handful of people was disturbing. I was wasting hours of my time, harassing others into doing business with me.
I started to hate what I’d become.
And, I knew that there had to be another way.
After years of searching, testing and practice; I discovered the system of my dreams. It takes some work and dedication.
And it’s much easier and productive than annoying cold calls.
It turned me from the man people hate to see, to someone that they can’t wait to hear from. A modern miracle for my clients, my business, and my family.
I’ve told you about this before, and you haven’t taken advantage of it. So, I’m going to make you an offer that is hard to refuse.
