Personal favorite. Completely disregarding reality that absolutely no one wants a cold call.

Yeah, I understand that completely. I try to tell people that when I get cold calls and emails when it is clear they are putting effort into the outreach and not just spamming.

Worst that can happen is they tell me to fuck off when I guess if you really think about it the worst that can happen is the prospect files a complaint to your company because he was so pissed off by your cold call๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

Honestly, working from home sucks, but I can reward myself if I knock out some calls and say "I can take a walk now" or "I think I will have a beer at 2pm."ย

Nice. Ever knock a few calls out after a beer or 5?

Just call. You will get more from a 60 second phone call than 10 emails back and forth.
