Cold Call Reenactment

Being an SDR is the hardest job on earth. It's a real "welcome to sales" moment for most when they make their first cold call.


I'm sure there are some legendary cold calling war stories out there. Anyone have some good ones? Would love to hear.

Not Only Did He Meet With Me, He Bought From Me

Once upon a time I had an individual tell me that “I will never meet with you, not in a thousand years, never call me again.”


I accepted that challenge and within 9 months not only did he meet with me, he bought from me.

Help me avoid things I hate!

Most companies pitch their product on some hope that you'll be interested in how they can save you time and money.


It's boring, generic, and easy to ignore.
