This week was especially interesting because I was offered the opportunity to go out and sell ad space for the magazine to Thiel. What an experience. I hadn’t really done anything like this before in the case where im trying to SELL something not BUY it. This is much more difficult.
I was nervous going into it but I had a gameplan and I stuck to it. There were times during the conversation with the head of Public Relations that I felt like I didn’t have control…I was outgunned but I didn’t give in. Long story short, I made the sale and man that felt good but it made me realize what the sales guys here are really doing. It gave me a whole new respect for Brandon, Kyle and Sean because to go out on cold calls, leaving yourself completely vunerable. Let’s just say it’s a humbling experience. Hats off to you guys for sure.
