Mentoring Valuable Proteges: You put the situation or opportunity on lifes scale of justice and you weigh it. If it's heavy you continue to achieve it. If it's light you let it float on.
Mentoring Valuable Proteges: Diane Marchese they should call if they didn't show. Common courtesy. Professionalism. Decency. Respect.
Tammy Kling: Nothing. Live my life.
It's always a huge huge blessing. My first thought is; thank you! I have more margin time to finish the amazing projects.
Don't link it to respect professionalism etc. Everyone's busy. Sometimes people forget. Sometimes there's tragedy. I had a girl not show up to do my hair other day for a major tv show. I did it myself. Big deal. I still haven't heard from her. I know she's fine and I'll use her next time. Big deal. She probably has a good reason. My life is too fulfilling to dwell on these things. Sure they should call. But if they don't it won't create 1 negative emotion. I focus on the creation of margin time.
Jennifer Lancaster: What Diane said. I do that.
Kevin: "Stab them."
James Russell: ^ hahahahahahahaha
Libbe HaLevy: Call them to make certain nothing catastrophic has happened and ask them to call to check in. Then proceed w/my life. I'll wait 15 minutes and then leave.
Lawrence Bland: I think Diane Marchese said it just right. Make sure nothing catastrophic happend, then move on if no response.
Tom Maurer: I use "Time Trade" to book the appointment they have to watch 3 videos before they get access to my calendar. So they are committed once they have an appointment.
Tom Brewitz: FB all your friends.
Jessica Johnson Dornblaser: Forget it and move on. Shit happens.
Angel: "It all depends if I have travel in the Miami traffic at peak time to get to the appointment and there is a no show I will kill that individual."
Dave: "Order a hit?"
Sharon Gadbois: Angel's LMAO true .. that's funny!
Diane and Jennifer and Lawrence I can appreciate. I did that. I did not get a "very sorry" response until an hour after that begging for a reschedule!
Tammy, I love it!
Jay Shapiro: Give them two more chances. Then if it occurs twice more with no results never talk to them again!
Mario J Viteri: This means 2 things.
1. You were not that important to them to begin with
2. Or they are simply the wrong prospect for you to prospect.
John McClaskie: Reschedule.
William E. Lewis: Invoice them for your time.
Sharon Gadbois: I was thinking that William.
Chad Terpstra: Keep following up. Most people in sales give up after 1-3 contacts. On average it takes 7 contacts. I stop following up when someone changes their phone number or dies.
Jay Shapiro: For prospecting Chad is totally right!!
Chad Terpstra: For clients too Jay. I have a client that I am about to close where I will make $15,000 that I have been following up with for 2.5 years.
Go ahead and share with us a time or two when this happened to you and how you handled it? If it happened again, if you allowed a reschedule and if so, what did you do after that?
