When it comes to being a pushy business owner, there are two ways to do it.
One of them works extremely well.
The other one doesn’t.
Allow me to explain.
1. You can push people
Pester them with cold calls.
Interrupt them with selfish requests.
Try and close the sale the first time you speak to them.
Hassle them for referrals at networking events.
Hound them on social networks.
2. You can push yourself
Expand your knowledge.
Refuse to settle for less than you truly want.
Do what’s right, even when it isn’t easy.
Do what your competitors avoid, because they think it’s too tricky.
Leave your comfort zone… regularly.
Focus on what you want rather than what you fear.
In short, when you push yourself, you move forward. When you push others, they push you back. All the way back.
Choose wisely my friend, and then push.
