How Did You Become Successful?

From Sandra Bell-Lundy's Between Friends blog, comes this great entry that talks about success and how does one get started actually being successful. She approached a guy who sold real estate -- one of the most successful people she knew:

"He told me that when he first started in real estate he was completely green as to 'HOW THINGS WERE DONE.' He had no idea what the protocols were for networking for contacts and finding clients. He was ignorant, motivated and starting at ground zero...and he told me that, in his enthusiasm, he went out and did everything he wasn't supposed to do. Apparently, that worked very well for him."

That's an awesome and inspiring quote! It confirms that I am definitely on the right track with what I'm doing. Thanks for posting, Mike.

It's amazing how many folks have forgotten the power of the phone call. And I'm guilty of this too, but emails just don't have the same selling power as a 2-minute call.
