COVID19 Remote Working Day One Hundred and Seventy-One of Selling Copiers
It's been three days since I wrote my last blog that was on day 166. I had zero orders in for last week, however I was able to make some headway with an existing client. That existing client should be ordering one A4 and one A3 mid part of this week.
In addition we had what I think is the last meeting with a net new client for a pretty decent content opportunity with some hardware in it. I asked "Will you be able to get me back the signed documents this week?" The answer to the question? It was a big fat YES. Thus hoping by the end of the week that will be the case and the revenue is just shy of $38K.
That opportunity along with what I've booked already will get me to where I need to be for November, but there is still one month to go. I told Tim today that I did plant the seed for December 10th for that net new client to move on another $67K order.
COVID in NJ
Our Governor rolled back a few things but stopped at going back to a state wide lockdown like we had in March, April, May and June. In door gatherings are now reduced to 10 people and out door is down to 150 from 500. So far so good we'll see what next week brings us.
Change and operating outside of your comfort zone is something we hear and read about with our sales world. When your world is turned upside down how can you manage change or better yet how can you get better at operating outside of your comfort zone? Practice helps but there are times when you just need to do it.
Throw all of those fears away and just get it done. After 40 years of doing this I still have my demons that continue to taunt me on a daily basis. After 40 years I understand there are still things that I need to get better at. But you can't exorcise those demons if you don't try. Thus for all of us that deal with these demons everyday I put together this inspirational jibjab video.
