The 10 Lethal Mistakes That Beginners Make (And the Solutions for Them!)
Update: Hi it's Milton Goh, and I'll be sharing from my 4 years of experience what are the 10 most common and lethal mistakes that beginners tend to make, and how you can avoid them. Firstly, you've got to realise that change of your results can only come from awareness of the mistakes you're making. This blog post is meant to inform you and give you a direction to work towards. I went on 60+ vacations in the last 4 years. I am blessed to have a great team of highly-motivated leaders, and I hope that what I'm about to share will bring you value.
#10 Verbal Vomiting
Verbal vomiting is also known as the diarrhea of the mouth. Basically if you're guilty of this, you are talking too much! We need to keep our invitations short and simple for them to be effective! The best invites have minimal content, but maximum curiosity! Beginners fall into this trap because while inviting, your prospects ask you "What is it about?" and that's where you fumble. You just don't know the right words to say. We aren't helping our guest by answering their questions before they see the whole picture - in fact we are being unfair to them and robbing them of the opportunity to see the whole picture at once, in the best way possible to make sense of it. Just like how you wouldn't spoil a movie for a good friend, don't spoil the opportunity for them by saying too much!
Here's an invitation guideline that I personally use and that you can adopt if you want: "Hi I am working on an exciting platform right now and I would really love to share it with you! Are you available in the evening either on Wednesday or Thursday to meet and give me your honest feedback on it?"
If someone asks you "What is it about?", Which most of the time they will and you must be prepared for this, just reply "I know you're curious, but you need to see the whole picture at once, and not bits of info here and there. I hope you understand..". That works for me! After that, confirm the meeting with your guest by repeating the time and venue again.
