Day 8: Try to buy a business on the spot
Rejection #8 Try to buy a business on the spot
I'm sure there are many of you out there that want to be business owners. But have you ever thought about just walking right into a business and asking if you can buy it? Probably not. I don't think that's the way things work. But I'm going to give it a go anyway. I've always wanted to give hospitality a try and think it would be cool to own a Restaurant. I'm actually really nervous about this. But I've got my sales skills to support me.
I walk in to the Restaurant and ask if I can buy it. After some negotiation I am introduced to the owner and am taken down into the basement (no dodgy stuff, I promise). It's a no, but the experience was something I certainly wasn't expecting.
What did I learn?
What an amazing experience. To be introduced to the owner and having a genuine conversation with him was awesome. We got to talking for a good 15 minutes about business and life. Not at all what I was expecting! The owner was a really cool guy. When I left the Restaurant, I felt I was on another level in attitude and mindset.
