Entrepreneur. Founder of MeetMapper– Mentor & friend to those who fear the phone and "Cold Call".
Passionate about helping & serving people at work and in business.
I've "Cold Called" the best and worst of them. Thousands upon thousands of them over many years.
From top CEO's and Gate-Keepers who thought they were, to small one or two-man-bands. I've called both business and consumer cold calls. I did this in telesales and for myself. I was someone who could get you in through the door of pretty much any company.
I've had wonderful conversations that led to friendships. I've also had nightmare calls that you swear you'll never pick up that phone ever again.
I've exaggerated, sweet-talked, and pressurised. And I've also been too clever with scripts and the words I used. But in a job with targets, this happens. You end up doing these things because you want to keep that job and you need the money.
Reading books, videos, podcasts and courses sort of worked.
Eventually, the penny dropped and realised that pretty much everyone miss point of it all. It's about YOU and THEM, as people not scripts, words and KPI's
