Action Day

Action Day

How often do you actually make telephone calls to prospects, past customers and current clients? Business coaches charge thousands to facilitate “Action Days”; days focusing on just calling prospects, following up with past customers and asking for referrals from current clients.

~It’s important to be held accountable (monitored by others)

~A sense of competition drives better results

~And, it’s just got to be FUN
