One of the most common reactions when I’ve pushed a reluctant entrepreneur into phoning someone is the amazed phrase “He Didn’t Bite My Head Off!”.
I felt that way too.
I feel that way too.
I’ve just called the Presdent and said “I read yesterday’s press release on CNW and I’m calling you to invite you out to lunch”.
I don’t get my head bitten off.
Of course I don’t.
The President doesn’t have a clue who I am.
“Are you an investor?” they sometimes ask. No, I say, I’m not.
Sometimes they say “ It’s Not a Good Time ”, and that’s OK too. I ask if next month might be better, or even ask them to suggest a time. After all “It’s Not a Good Time” means that It’s a Good Idea, but that It’s Not a Good Time, so if it’s a good idea, let’s do it at another time. You pick a time.
I was going to let you pick a time anyway.
By the time The President has asked me who I am, what I do (I read the CNW press releases, that’s what I do, and that’s why I’m inviting him out to lunch) we have begun to be curious about each other.
What kind of a consultant just calls and ask for a lunch date, just for the sake of meeting, anyway/
Someone kind of special.
Sure! Let’s do lunch.
Sounds like fun.
