Prospecting: Not every prospect or partner will be the right fit. Identifying the right fit takes time. You can't be afraid to say "No" to find the person you know will value your offer most. 2. Discovery: Doing deep discovery is critical. Getting happy ears after a positive first date is easy, but you must continue to dig to understand the long-term fit. Understanding and calculating ROI is crucial in this early stage. 3. Demo: If you're confident there is a strong fit, showing your product to potential buyers is essential. Don't simply speak to the features or functionality; explain the results the other person can expect. Ideally, include a trial so they can try the product and get a feel for it. Bryan Shankman.

He requested to be paid $40 an hour to which I replied, "The most I pay anyone initially is $20 until I can trust them". He then went on to tell me about his depth of experience and how he is not in the 'try out' phase of his life anymore. Then, he hung up. When I was 24, I worked 20-40 hours a week as an intern with no pay. I learned more than any high paying job could have taught me. Furthermore, my experience opened the door to so many incredible opportunities that I could not have gotten otherwise. 12h One of my employees resigned back in the 90s, bright guy, I hated to see him go.
