…nce it’s worked for someone. Will it work for YOU? That’s the big question. It might. It might not. Ultimately, your job as a business owner is to be able to look out there and know that there is no magic bullet or sure thing and that everything that’s out there is just strategies and techniques to try until you find something that works.
To move them to action, you need to increase urgency. Now, you can either do it by exaggerating the pain they’re going through and offering catastrophic scenarios of what’s going to happen if they don’t take action (hire you or buy your thing), or you can flip the negative story and “paint a vivid picture” of what’s possible for them.
Avoid people who think they know everything and can tell you how to be successful. Your success is your own and will never be an identical journey of someone else. A tenured confidant is worth ten times more than a know-it-all.
Listen to others and help everyone you can. We all have a role in society, and the first is recognizing that we are all human. No one is better than anyone else. Regardless of all of the credentials you may have on that resumé of yours, you’re human before anything else. Be kind, genuine, and loving.
