If you have to ask yourself the question ‘why work with Mike?’ a good answer will be that it’s because ….

only a small % of deals ever close

It’s a fact of life; only a small % of projects make it – for 2 reasons:

1. You didn’t do enough preparation to convince them

2. 97% of the time it’s because of things that are completely outside of your control:

  • the need goes away
  • the project gets postponed
  • life gets in the way
  • money needs to be spent elsewhere
  • the dog ate their homework

The knack is to make sure you’re well prepared if there’s a deal to be had.

Work with me is about concentrating your resources. It’s about making sure that if there’s a deal to be had, if there’s a way in, you’re in with the best chance.
