Today Shawn asks, "My warm market is completely gone. How can I step out of my comfort zone and start meeting people to show my business to?"
I can relate to that in a BIG way! I'd go to the mall (because you know, people are at the mall) and I'd walk around for 2 hours and achieve absolutely NOTHING!
I was as bad as it gets contacting protests in the cold market.
But in this episode of The Unemployed Millionaire Show I want to give you some helpful tips and strategies that work great. In fact, it's these tips and strategies that give me the certainty that you can drop my off in any city in the world my company does business in, take away all my contacts, all my money, and all of my resources and I can get it all back quickly JUST by using the knowledge of the tips and strategies that have are proven to work.
Once you get over the fear you realize it's just a numbers game.
There are leads EVERYWHERE.
There's never a shortage of people who want financial freedom
There's never a shortage of people who want to work from home.
There's never a shortage of people who want to be able to raise their kids without having drop them off at daycare in the morning and rush in the door from their job at 7:30 or 8:00 PM to hopefully catch a quick bite to eat before bed time
If I offered you a job for $250K a year, and all you had to do was get 10 phone numbers every day from people who are interested in another way to generate income for 5 days a week, could you do it?
You can work any hours you want, all you have to do is get 10 numbers a day.
Would you? Almost everyone would say yes to that. Because when you believe the money is there, it changes your mentality.
And this is why leaders become leaders, they KNOW it's a numbers game and the money IS there!
So how to you get rid of the awkwardness when you're just getting started?
You JUST DO IT! The only way to get over a fear is to do that which you fear...
So the first thing is, no matter how uncomfortable and weird it feels, you JUST do it (knowing you might suck a little at first because we ALL sucked a little at this at first)
The second thing you need to do is, disassociate yourself from the results. The second you stop "needing" people to sign up, they start signing up. It's a weird phenomenon but ask any successful person in the world they'll all tell you the same thing. Neediness is a weird energy that not many people like to be around. Instead, you MUST learn to have fun, be happy, smile, find the humor in things, look for the good things in other people, etc.
And here's my formula to making this work for you:
Step 1: Give a sincere compliment (Make sure it's sincere and have fun)
Step 2: Ask questions about them and what they do for a living in a natural way
Step 3: Ask if they keep their income options open
Step 4: Tell them you'll call them and have them give you their number so you can call them
So Shawn, the biggest thing here is, you just have to start doing. Don't put ridiculous expectations on yourself. Leaders and rock stars in this industry don't fall off the truck at that level, they did EXACTLY what you're about to do to get there!
