How do I motivate myself to hit the phones?

Procrastinating making sales calls?

Understandable. It’s not easy!

Somedays you’re down.

Somedays you’re burnt.

Somedays you’re sick.

When making ZERO calls is NOT an option…

Try the… “All I’m gonna do technique.”

Say to yourself… “All I’m gonna do is make 5 cold calls.”


“All I’m gonna do is make cold calls for 10 minutes.”


“All I’m gonna do is make one cold call, then send one cold email until I hit 10.”

You’d be surprised how easy it is to hit this goal.

You’d be surprised that you might just keep going.

Procrastination is the enemy. So cheat it.

Motivate yourself to cold call
