Am I doing it wrong?

“John I get a lot of ‘not interested’ when I hand out a CD or talk to someone about my business. What am I doing wrong?”

The answer is ‘nothing’. You’re doing the right thing. Every no leads to a yes. So much of our business depends on timing. If you ask someone to listen and they’re doing well they may say ‘no’. Ask that some person when their circumstances change and suddenly they are interested. Just keep asking.

Mary Kaye got it right, fail forward.

"People fail forward to success."

  1. It is called "The Dip" read it.. by Seth Godin... we are all on the right track if we quit the wrong things and stay the course even when you can't see the light at the end of the tunnel or the crowd cheering at the 20th mile of the Boston marathon.. we know its there but only the smart ones will stay and sink deeper...
