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