24 hours after crying in my car I was back knocking on doors.
In 2009 I was trying to build up my lead generation business.
We were getting a few leads online and I had taught myself how to build a site, Google ads and copy writing.
But the real business was being generated out on the streets. Knocking on doors. Face to face.
I had a sales team but getting people to turn up consistently and reliably was dam near impossible. One young lady even claimed her brother had just died 30 minutes into working but that’s a story for another day..
So I got out there. Knocked on doors. Made the sales and worked on the sites in the evening.
Once I sat in the car and just cried. The sheer pressure of trying to keep everything going overwhelming me.
Building a better version of yourself is hard.
Knocking on doors and getting rejected 99% of the time is hard.
Spending money you barely have on ads to make more money is hard.
and it should be.
It’s the barrier to entry that most people wont pay.
My ROI on that time of my life has been gigantic.
My hard years are what makes my current life possible.
Take action always. It will feel imperfect. It will feel stressful. It will feel uncomfortable.
Do it anyway.
