Pipeline + Action = Results


THINK:  “Do two thing every day that scares you. That way you do at least one!” – JD Morris

ACTION:  Call one or two people that you know can help move your business forward, but for some reason, you have not called.

BOTTOMLINE: Call or ask somebody to call them, but give them the reward.  This resulted in $75,000 payday for me as a friend was afraid to call.
