Yes yes yes. I have heard this before from managers. I need to get known!!!
Your job search because effortless if you are not a secret and your actions are known. I see you on my calendar for tomorrow. We will have some fun.
Listening to you is like a cup of coffee before jumping into a cold plunge. You always wake me up and make me think. I am noodling on being known. I do have more questions. I want to make sure my value is right before I start meeting lots of decision makers. I noticed your calendar filled quickly last week. Trying to figure out how to book a consultation. I am beyond ready for your help. I send Chris an email this morning.
I see you on my calendar. Some people want to figure out their value before we chat. The issue is that developing your C.OP.S on your own is terribly hard...like doing surgery on yourself. The result of this work as a solo endeavor is typically a very weak set of actions. We will get it right together and then we will get you hired.
Do you ever take clients and get your fee on the back end? I would be willing to pay you 4x your fee after you get me hired.
Please let me know.
I get this ask every so often. I know I can help if I know I can help. We find this out in the consultation. I am not perfect, but I do have an 86% success rate with solid velocity to close, 60 days (with my Longer Program). I need candidates to show up and execute (complete the agreed-upon weekly actions). When you pay for my service, you will probably do your darndest to shop up and execute.
My query is always the same. How would I get you to show up if I was to take you on with massive back end for me? How would I get you to execute? You could disappear before you got to first base or disappear as you are sliding into home. Sorry for the baseball analogies (I don't even watch baseball). You could execute a little here, a little there. Consistency and presence are keys to success in my program. Hopefully, you get it. So, I respectfully need to pass.
Me, the job search guy.
