Utility Warehouse success is often a series of sliding door moments where small decisions make a difference
Which sliding door scenario will you choose?
Picture the scenario…
It’s Sunday late afternoon and you get a text from your 18 year old cousin from New Zealand that you know has been travelling around Europe for the last couple of months but has only stopped by London for a couple of days and you haven’t met up with.
In truth, you have only met her once, eleven years earlier, when you went to stay at her family home in Wellington for a couple of days when she was 7!
She asks if you can meet up the following day – her last day before she flies home – and asks if you can get the day off work, but she understands it may be hard to do so.
Senario 1: You procrastinate a bit and don’t follow-up so your pipeline is pretty bare, therefore you don’t have the time freedom to say yes. “Sorry Maddie – maybe next time you’re in the UK in 10 years time?”
Senario 2: u sign up customers but you don’t show them the business opportunity, therefore you probably haven’t got the time freedom to say yes. “Sorry Maddie – maybe next time you’re in the UK in 10 years time?”
Senario 3: Everyone you get a ‘no’ or see that BT are still trading and daring to advertise in your area, you down tools for a few weeks or months, so you haven’t got the time freedom to say yes. “Sorry Maddie – maybe next time you’re in the UK in 10 years time?”
Scenario 4: You consistently sign up customers and using the Simple Money Presentation and the UW Stories or It’s Your Life magazine or local Opportunity Presentation, you also show people how they can earn more money this year than they did last, and explain how you (or someone local) can help them earn £200-£2000 in the next few days or weeks by getting started fast (with great rewards for Matching CGB). So by building your customer base AND your team, and helping them get started, you create a royalty-style ‘residual’ income that comes in every month for work you and your team have done in the past. You also accept that expecting to have success without rejection is like wanting to swim and not get wet. Therefore, you don’t need to ask for a day off or call in sick, you are able to choose to say ‘yes’ and therefore you have a great day creating some unforgettable memories.
As you will see from the message sequence below, luckily I chose scenario 4 albeit you have MUCH better tools and incentives to grow with!
