I’ve never been a caregiver…not that I would turn it down, but it’s just not something that has been asked of me yet. But….I have great respect for them.
Being a caregiver of the average child is called being a parent. But what do you call it when it’s a physically or mentally impaired child? What if it’s an adult? A parent, grandparent or spouse? I have had the privilege of knowing a few of those types of caregivers and it is AMAZING the load of work and stress they handle in a typical day. I am awed by their selflessness, perseverance, and determination.
That’s a serious question: are you? You could have the BEST product or the BEST service, but if you wear sweat pants and bed head you are ruining every sale you try to make. Maybe you do dress up, but the colors are all wrong for your skin color, the patterns make you look heavy, and your hair cut is outdated. If you want to be a good salesman, and make the sale you need to look the part! So, I ask again…do you?
This is where Jean comes in. Jean Hendry is a life coach and motivational speaker. Her purpose is to help you dress, style your hair, do your make-up, walk and talk as if you are the best in your field. You know you are! Jean just takes what you know about yourself and puts it on the outside so that others can see it, too.
Cold Calling. Just the phrase sends shivers down your spine, doesn’t it?
Back in my day (I’m about to reveal how ancient I am, now.), when we started our video business in 2000, for a small business the most popular methods for advertising were – mailers plus cold calling, emails plus cold calling, and trade shows plus cold calling. I did more cold calling than any other marketing activity, and it worked! I was using a list of known brides with upcoming weddings. They signed up with a magazine we advertised in or a bridal show we attended and I would use that list to email, mail, and make numerous phone calls. It was time consuming, but relatively cheap, and it yielded results! The cold calling effort was bringing in as much or more than a google search for our website which topped the google page for several years!
