My friends say I have no life. Except for some fishing, spoiling my grandkids, service work with the Lions and experimental cooking with/on my friends and family, I have no major distractions.
That’s because I love to work. I have found that there is nothing more thrilling than business … both working on mine and helping my clients improve theirs. And that’s a good thing for my clients.
That’s why I’m available to my clients twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. Don’t believe me?
Well, to prove it, I’m making a playful, whimsical offer. It’s also an opportunity for my SBO associates to prove that they’re as dedicated (maniacal?) as I am about business.
Take me up on it and I’ll send you a free copy of my book, The Back to Basics Book of Selling. No strings. (Though I will most certainly follow up and offer a free marketing consultation to win your business. After all, I am a capitalist and a businessman!)
Here’s the deal: Sure, it’s almost New Year’s Eve. (Or if you’re actually taking a few days off, just into the starting gate of the New Year.) Still, this is the offer:
I invite you to call me any time, day or night at my personal cell phone number, 920-559-3722, just to say, “Okay, I’m just seeing if you’re for-real on this, John.” I am. Sure, I’ll put the bite on you for a follow-up conference call (no charge, btw) to discuss your business, but we’ve already been over this.
Why am I doing this? Well, it is part whimsy. I’m curious how many phone calls I will get in the coming days (or nights). I know that most SBOs work strange hours, and even when they’re not in the shop or at the computer, they’re thinking about how to lower expenses, increase sales and keep from going nuts by dealing with tardy employees, implacable customers, and the joys of jumping through government hoops.
Oh, and once again, here’s the hook, the pot sweetener: Call and I’ll send you a signed copy of my timeless classic, The Back to Basics Book of Selling. Free!

P.S. No, 920-559-3722 is not some special marketing number. This is the phone that’s in my pocket, on my nightstand when I’m sleeping, beside me in the car, on the counter in the kitchen when I’m cooking a to-die-for (or just to die) Italian meal.
If I don’t pick up, it’s because I’m (A) in the shower; (B) in the bathroom (sorry, but I have my standards); (C) in a crowded room and didn’t hear the ring; or (D) talking to another SBO, my lady love or one of my kids. If I do miss the call, I promise I’ll get back to you ASAP … if not sooner. So, call me!
