When I was 20 years old I got my first sales job selling gym memberships. At the ripe age of 20 I realized this fact. I, was not a good salesman. You see after making numerous cold calls I finally reached a gentleman that was interested in buying four gym memberships. One for him, one for his wife and two for his children. All I had to do was bring the contracts over to his office.
Hungry for my biggest sale ever, I drove those contracts to what happened to be a school for bartenders. After giving me a tour of his facilities we sat down in his office for a bit and then I left. Now guess how many contracts I got signed during our meeting? One, I got one contract signed. Not entirely bad, one out of four right?
