Struggling to Get Past Gatekeepers?

Getting past gatekeeper

Are you Struggling to get Past Gatekeepers?

How many times have you KNOWN you had the PERFECT solution for a prospective client… only to be thwarted by the good ‘ol gatekeeper.  Today I’ll show you how  to get passed gatekeepers.

Do you recognise any of these Gatekeeper types?

  • The ‘blocker’-  whose sole existence is to stop you getting anywhere near their boss.
  • The ‘sadist’ – who actually enjoys swatting away hopeful consultants with the oh so polite ‘where are you from again?
  • The ‘9-5’er’ – who before you have finished introducing yourself has started their autoresponse by saying “he/she’s busy right now… would you like to leave a message
  • The ‘expert’ spouse – who knows just enough in your area of expertise to close down your message based on their own preconceived ideas.

Business sucks when you’re not getting in front of your ideal client on a consistent basis because you cannot get past the gatekeeper.  Sales targets don’t get met and the trickle down effects begin.

Woody Allen Quote

80 Percent of Success is Showing Up

Woody Allens’ Famous Quote

“Showing up is 80 percent of life. Sometimes it’s easier to hide home in bed. I’ve done both.” – 1977 August 21, New York Times

He went onto expand this further in 1989 when he said:

“My observation was that once a person actually completed a play or a novel, he was well on his way to getting it produced or published, as opposed to a vast majority of people who tell me their ambition is to write, but who strike out on the very first level and indeed never write the play or book. In the midst of the conversation, as I’m now trying to recall, I did say that 80 percent of success is showing up.” – 1989 August 13, New York Times

‘My New Best Friend I Didn’t Know I had’…
