So you decided to work from home and found the perfect company. You are so excited and ready to run out and sell sell sell…. recruit recruit recruit.
The problem is, not everyone is going to share your enthusiasm.
You will probably hear the word no, more times than a two year old does. DON’T LET THIS DISCOURAGE YOU!
Go for nos! Expect to hear 40 nos before you hear a yes. IT’S OK!!
This is just a fact of the business. Unless someone tells you ABSOLUTELY NOT.. THERE IS NO WAY, that’s a maybe!
See how fast that turned around?
Start yourself a special notebook for all your contacts.
Write down their name, when you spoke to them and what their response was. Then in a month or two, contact them again.
No doesn’t have to be a bad thing, and is certainly not personal.
Do you think a waitress takes it personal when a customer tells her NO to more coffee? or when a cashier asks if a customer wants their receipt and they tell her NO.
Not everyone is ready for what you have to offer and that is OK. It doesn’t mean you’ve failed or that you suck.
Instead of letting nos bring you down, make a game out of it. Set out in your day to see how many NOs you can get.
NO is not the end of the world and you should never take it personal. Besides, 8 out of 10 nos aren’t even NOs… They are just not nows!
