Losing my sales virginity

I haven’t felt this good in a while. After I quit such a long legitimate career path as online poker player I kinda dropped in to the nothingness to do.

So I wen’t to business. There was a bit of stress on whether this was even going to work out so I’m really pleased to get my first customer now.

It’s pretty weird that I called all these companies that I could get some serious results for, increase their sales by up to 50k. And, who do I get as my first customer, a 60-year old dude. I am not even sure I can help this guy increase his sales enough to justify the price but I will make sure that I try to.

I’m not happy about the money, I have to admit that I am greedy, it’s still just money. I am happy about the future possibilities, I wan’t to create a business that I can manage online. There’s so many countries that I have not yet seen. So many nations to conquer, this is going to be epic.

I have invested ridiculous amount of time on this already and my hourly looks bad

Who gives a shit. It is a figuring out process, get more effective as I go.
I have learned so much and in the future I am going to earn so much.

Anyways. I am about the head out of Wasa and head over to still snowy northern Finland. One week in a cottage, time to do some reading and sports.

That’s it. Just had a mentor call: He posed a good question:
How many sales like this does it take to get you to quit business school?
Apparently his degree is still unpicked in Belgium 😀
