BONUS TIP: Mike is very specific about Setting Your Ground Rules
Never go out on an appointment unless agreed upon. Get a straight commitment, demand for a specific length of uninterrupted time for the whole meeting/appointment. It should be fixed with the ground rules to avoid you getting your time wasted.
BONUS LOVIN: Do not sell yourself too much.
Customers can’t stand having too much information about you that they don’t actually need. It annoys them, and an annoyed customer means zero profit. Instead Mike suggests to change that into asking questions and then you follow up, in that way you can get good informations that favors your interests.
BONUS QUOTE: If there’s no ‘pain’, there’s no sale ever!
