- Showing up
Hi everyone, Carl Gould here with your #70secondCEO. Just a little over a one minute investment every day for a lifetime of results.
This illusion that entrepreneurs and business people were these, you know, Uber educated, brilliant group, and I was entering that group. And I felt like I had done something to kind of earn my stripes a little bit and while I really did well, I've learned later in my career that, you know, showing up is a huge part of the game. At that point, it just–it didn't hit me as a victory, you know, but remarkably, what I learned was that showing up was a lot more powerful than I thought, when I showed up, you know, I would get the attention of the prospect, they were really excited about the project. But more importantly, as I learned later, I also heard complaints from all the prospects about the other contractors and how they performed or didn't perform. And this is what started to shape, how I would build my business model going forward in the future. Here's what they told me, Carl, the other contractors didn't call me back. They didn't deliver the proposal as they promised. They didn't start on time. The last contractor we had didn't finish on time. You know, they told us one price and it ended up being another price, because they executed what was called a change order, meaning they started out and said, hey, it's going to cost you this much and we're going to do this kind of work.
