How often have you thought that towards someone else, when they decline your business offer or product?
“Ingrid just doesn’t get it.” “Why can’t Oscar see the big picture?”
Marc Cuban, a multi-multi-millionaire from his Internet ventures, is approached dozens of times each week by people wanting his money, his time, and his endorsement.
Today, Marc posted that if anyone seeking him out with a proposition ever says that to him again – that he (Marc) “just doesn’t get” the great thing being pitched – well, he’ll NEVER do business with them.
Because with that, you’ve just proven to him that you’re lazy and arrogant.
Be careful how you treat others whose money and time you seek for your business or product.
They may very well get it, and still decline. Yep. Turning down the greatest opportunity in the history of the world.
Insulting them (“you don’t get it/see it/if you could just see what I see…”) is the height of arrogance.
This is especially true when you’re approaching people with your product or business. E.g., calling leads, running ads, trying whatever to get people to respond to your offer.
Even when someone approaches you to discuss your business, do not insult them with such an attitude.
A different view is just that. Different. So let go and move on.
P.S. We should not be so arrogant in any event. If the NM business opportunity were really that awesome, wouldn’t more folks be making it?
