Number coincidences, with the times in the article, and the word count being 529. Today is speaking to me, telling me to break from wine’s fuckwit industry and only be and write here.
3:26PM. First deal closed, today! I’m celebrating and rejoicing a bit, but I’m very much tempering it. Have to “keep the party going”, as I said in an email. Made a couple calls, now to make more. Haven’t done much else but make sure everything is in order for this transaction. Nothing on books tomorrow but a couple calls. Will be on phones but the aim is creative… creative approaches to conversations and interactions, creative ways to prospect. One guy I met said to write down as many people as you can, that you know closely and well and not so. Don’t look at people as prospects, look at them as people, people you want to get to know. The literary approach… get to know their story and narrative. The literary approach I have with wine will even more prove useful and relevant in this business. Writer in a tech office… of course, of course!
Eating PB&J wife made me, just now. Tired a bit after workout, but not to a degree with impedes my motion’s place and application. New ways to speak this company, what it does and what it means, more than the simple list of products and services. That’s certainly part of it, but it’s NOT the entirety. This sales teaches me that I need to even more break any mold or template. Not that I’m sticking to one, but write more post-it’s that define Sonic, that speak and SHOW Sonic. How can I catalog and list, or even post what I’m thinking right now, after this first sale and after a Senior Account Exec told me I NEED to be in front of people. She called my speaking eloquent and strong, and being on the phones is absolutely NOT the only path to what I’m after.
