My business is giving me headaches. I knew it wouldn't be easy, but you'd think after 2 weeks, I'd have had at least one decent bite.
And so... I need to look at what I'm doing incorrectly. Note - I'm doing everything that needs to be done, but parts are not as good as they should be.
And so I did... increased the numbers talked to and found that even then, there was a critical error being made.
Error corrected and suddenly 3 bites.
Why the title you ask?
An urban legend (possibly true) tells of british engineers asking NASA why a dead chicken gun that the Americans designed kept shattering the best shatter proff glass. After a few days, the responce came back.
"Gentlemen, Please thaw your chickens."
In short - what obvious detail was being overlooked.
In my case, there were a few.
1/ Numbers game. I simply was not speaking to enough people.
2/ Getting numbers. Giving out cards is all well and good. It also means said card will be thrown away within 12 hours. Getting their number allows for them to be contacted later.
3/ Hours. Similar to 1 - work the hours to get the numbers. And working the graveyard shift effectively kills that one.
4/ Dedication. The why I was doing it kept getting lost amidst distractions.
There are more. I'll deal with them as I uncover them.
The gun is loaded and ready.
and I'm not going to gve up.
