Selling commercial solar energy systems is not easy. I’ve been at it for 4 months now and have had to deal with several competing time sinks: I’ve moved into a new house, had relationship issues, wrangled with the graduate studies department at Portland State to finally get my Master’s degree paperwork all approved, and only as of 2 days ago have a reasonable home office to work from.
Knowing sales really is a numbers game, I am in need of a routine to keep it going strong – something tangible to keep myself on target and accountable.
So, I decided on rocks. Pure coincidence our website is called “Solar Power Rocks!”, though I think this system will really work well for me.
I’ve got two glasses on my window sill. Each morning, I’ll place 50 rocks in the glass on the left. With each outbound call I make, I place one of those rocks in the other glass, until all those rocks are in glass #2.
Wish me luck, and go solar!
