Day 37: Get the Crowd First (Then Sell)

  1. Teaching and selling differ — I’d like to think of myself as an excellent teacher of the art of interviewing…selling is a different ballgame…I totally agree
  2. Find the crowd and then sell the offering — Tim found the potential customers for a sports nutrition solution, makes me think perhaps I should find the crowd for my next product before I draft its content — this would be a new way of working for me
  3. Your birth story could affect your entire life — well my birth story was that I was pulled out with clamps thus giving me a dent in my skull…can’t extrapolate anything there since this dent is hidden and hasn’t change my life outlook at all
  4. Cal taught Tim how to ask better questions — I visited Cal’s website because here I am knowing in my heart that asking questions is my core skill and so now I want to learn from Cal — that’s it nothing more insightful to share YET
  5. Pay attention to the ads that sell you — Tim would collect ads that compelled him and garnered insights from his collection to his benefit
  6. Some goods things can happen at 3 am — Tim learned from infomercials so see mom something good can happen at night
  7. Podcasts are a great way to get your thoughts out there — Cal and Tim were swapping ideas, I want to hear others swap more ideas perhaps us Latinas — this gives me something to explore
  8. Tim didn’t enjoy writing — yes, neither do I! Woo hoo yet I’m going to keep writing until I reach my 100 day challenge here on Medium
  9. Cal is ahead of the game that I would love to play — Cal is known for his curiosity and gift of asking smart questions…Cal I want to learn from you
  10. Zip Recruiter is the smartest way to hire — nothing like having ads on your first podcast episode — now that’s a smart way to monetize a podcast — if Quidad is interested I’d be game to be their curly-haired audio queen
