…what will come next?

I can’t believe it is the new year.  I don’t know about you, but 2019 seemed to drag on!  Given that, I am excited for 2020. Some say it’s a new decade,… some say it isn’t.  Who cares!

I have a lot in the works regarding my speaking and I can’t wait to see where it leads. As of now, I have only 2 gigs…and it may lead to 12…we will see!  I can’t believe I have 10 projects in the works!  All I can do is my job and that’s it.  I wouldn’t complain, what good would that do.  I can’t worry.  Again…what good would THAT do.

I have to do my job…and that is what I like most!  Isn’t life great? I get to spend one more day with my family and can see what THEY are accomplishing.

I received my first ever inbound sales lead!

I had my VERY first sales call for a lead who called in the other day. Can you guess how I did?

AWEFUL!!!

When I first picked up the phone, I thought it was a telemarketer…so I was very polite.  I figure anyone who is calling for a living deserves politeness on the other end of the phone. My form of politeness came of across as bright and cheery hello!

When I discovered who he was, I decided to go into my sales mode.  Unfortunately, I really don’t have a sales mode. I thought of all the things I wanted to say, but I couldn’t get them out.

I stumbled and then I thought of something.  I would call the guy back, but I would be prepared. I did…and it didn’t work.  I was trying VERY hard but I couldn’t get the words to come out in the right order.  I recorded myself …but am to embarrassed to play it for you.  I just sound terrible.

Do you want to hear it…at least…part of it?
