Extracts from her article:
“If you want people to become your clients, they need to get to know you, learn to like you, and believe they can trust you. And for that, they really do need to meet you.”
“What you’ll discover if you begin to meet clients in person, talk to them on the phone, and ask directly for their business, is that it gets easier the more you do it. It will build your confidence in yourself — and the confidence your prospective clients have in you — at the same time.”
“If you’re in the business of serving people, your best marketing tool is your own voice. So put it to work and start talking to them.”
