Thank you Birdman - I was beginning to think this place had lost its entrepreneurial spirit ;)
There used to be a game show in the UK called, The Generation Game. One of the games was where a contestant had to sit in front of a hatch watching a range of products go past on a conveyor belt.
The products they could remember later, they kept.
I used to tell the sales guys, you've got a day. You control how fast that conveyor belt rolls. You don't know when the prizes will roll-by but I guarantee you, there are prizes. What are you gonna do?
The hardest part of the sales-game are the no's. Getting the sale is the easiest and most pleasurable bit - Anyone can fill-out a form.
If you're starting-out, and you're in a market that exists, then hearing "no's" is what you get paid for... the trick is to spin that conveyor belt as fast as you can and not let a prize slip-by when it comes.
