Aren't you the guy who did 5000 cold calls in a day? Believe it or not, I regularly think of that thread. Especially when I feel like quitting after making a couple of dozen calls.

I don't have a specific question to ask you right now, but I'd love to connect in case something comes up. I'll shoot you a message.

Thanks for doing this!
Same, would love to connect if you have any time and still offer this.

Thanks for doing this @458. I haven't done any calls with forum members recently and you're inspiring me to do something for the community again.

What I find interesting is that even giving your time away for free isn't an easy sell. People took you up on your offer because of the knowledge you gave away for free helping others in their threads.

When someone who hasn't contributed offers something like this then if often doesn't end well.
Honestly not many people actually PM me for a call and only one of them actually kept setting up calls with me.. But that's basic stats for you. The one percent is the one percent and it will always be that way.

Could be that most people on here still wanna hear the Zen pitch on BS hype. Most people wanna buy BS, they want to be lied to. My calls are not fun, i think most people are scared to speak to me, rightfully so.. I have nothing good to tell you because if you knew what you were doing you wouldn't be calling me.

I PM'd you back in March and never heard back from you.

"I made one cold call and nothing happened"
Honestly didn't know this was some kind of game to get a 10-min Skype call.

I do agree with the quote. Thanks man!

EDIT: I'm still down to do a Skype call too haha

It's not a game, its life.. No one will ever pay attention to you because you simply exist. You have to be annoying as hell and call and call and call. Everyone else is too busy with there own shit to pay attention to you and your needs..

Just got off the line with 458. When he says this he means it (although I actually enjoyed the call). He tells it straight, largely as it is and how he sees it. With that being said the advice he gives it good stuff and very legit. If you've been on the fence than I would recommend hopping off of it and setting up a call.

Thanks again @458, appreciate the time.

I'm guilty of not setting up a call, although @458 already generously gave me his email a few months back. Every time I see this thread gets bumped up I always want this mentoring. But I went through a few setbacks so got back to a 9-5 job to buy more time/cash. Don't want to waste my mentor's time at this stage. But I'm not giving up either so I'm making some noise here :hilarious:

It's 3:30AM where I am and I just got off the phone with @458

I am wanting to get better with sales and landed a client today who I will be doing contract work for. @458 gave me direct areas that I need to improve on immediately in my sales pitch to get better. We also talked about the process for selling for yourself versus selling for a company. Lastly, we talked about leveraging money and how one could make it work for them.

I believed this would be a quick hitting conversation where there would be zero hand holding. I was right and I appreciated every minute of his time.

Quit reading, private message @458 and get a time slot in place. You will not regret it!

Spoke with @458 this morning on Skype. It was worth the time.

He gave some new perspective on a few things that relate to expanding/taking my business to the next level. He was clearly speaking from his own experiences.

I recommend you guys take advantage of this opportunity. You might learn something. ;)

Thanks to everyone for showing up on time, enjoyed all of our conversations. Looking forward to more in the future!
Hello 458. Could we setup a call? I can't figure out the PM feature. Been years since I've been on a forum.

All the best,
Nick

A little late posting.

Thank you @458 for taking the time to give free Skype mentoring. You could've spend it on other more important things. Had a session and it helped me to be more decisive and making decision fast. Sometimes the things that stopping us might be overthinking and inaction.

Side note: Something I learned from @Andy Black, Always be grateful and thank those who helped you.

Again thank you for the Skype call! :) + rep

It's been 7 months since I did my first call with @458 .

I more than doubled my monthly income since then. And, I only had two calls with him total so far.

He helped me to:
  • Look at my "available cash" differently. It became very clear to me that it was the perfect time in my business to get a loan.
  • How to better deal with the fear that comes with business growth.
  • And, recommendations on the hiring process.
Yeah.. it's true. Those two 10 minute phone calls set me on a path for rapid growth, which is still growing.

I haven't had a third call with him yet because I've been too busy working. But, as soon as a good question comes up, I'll contact him again.

For what it's worth guys.. take the free mentoring.

@458 Thanks man!

@458 , is your service still available?

I think that cold calling might be important to my future. I don't have an emotional issue with being turned down, but I do have a practical concern about how to not waste the time of those I call, nor to be an intrusive pest rather than a welcome provider of something worth buying. Should be pretty quick to see if I'm misunderstanding, or missing something important that would help me think and act more productively. If we have time for more than that, there's something else I could ask you about as well.

Sending you a direct message as well.

I had a call with 458 today, he had some great insight and confirmed a few ideas I'd been considering. I'm looking forward to implementing them as soon as possible.

Thanks for your time @458, it's greatly appreciated.
