“Many salespeople, as you and I both know, are kind of unprepared to have a conversation with a live prospect at any given moment, and because they’re unprepared. They’re scared of it. They’re really scared of cold calling. They’re scared of what might happen. They’re scared of getting told I’m not interested and getting hung up on. And they don’t have a structure or a process. I’ve gotten so obsessed and so passionate about Cold Calling because I was an entry-level sales. Though that had to just cold call all day, and I had the pit of my stomach feeling every time before I pick up the phone. So I’ve dedicated, the beginning of my career here for the first 9-10 years just becoming as good as I could possibly be at having sales conversations.” – KEVIN HOPP
