Hi Everyone, Carl Gould here your #70secondCEO, just over a minute of investment per day for a lifetime of results.
And I remember thinking like, “Ugh, really?” Like I still suck, you know. Like, you know, I’m not good at anything. I wasn’t feeling great about myself at home. All my friends calling me up, “Hey, when are you coming back?” “No.” “What’s the problem?” “Money.” You know, the whole bit. Wasn’t feeling great about myself. But anyway, I go through the rest of that season and I hear all the complaints about what it’s like to work with landscapers. So after that, I call the Yellow Page ad guy and I said, “I got it, I’m ready, I’m in.” And I took a half page ad. I didn’t even list my services. I wrote: Name of Company, that’s all I wrote because I didn’t have room, phone number and “All Phone Calls Returned.” That’s it. So in the first year, I was overrun with leads. Overrun. But I promised I would show up, the promise was everyone gets a proposal. so I was that guy who would show up at your house 6:30 in the morning, 5 o’clock at your office, whatever.
