DECOMPRESS

M. Need to vent

C. Go for it

M. I'm tired and stressed. I have been working nonstop.

C. Go on

M. The F meeting was frustrating. K was spouting a bunch of BS.

C. Go on

M. I was also frustrated with how the meeting with DJ went.

C. How so?

M. My friend spoke too much

C. Can I ask a question?

M. Sure

C. Is it possible you're looking at the DJ meeting through a negative lense

M. What do you mean?

C. Didn't SL tell you that DJ gave her some ideas on how to package S 2.0?

M. She did

C. Didn't she also tell you that DJ said he's a fan?

M. She did

C. Didn't DJ also say he couldn't understand wasn't part of EVERY ST deal?

M. He did

C. Also didn't a prominent company come out with a GS solution?

M. Yes

C. What's their messaging?

M. I'll work on that. Thanks.

C. Good. Let me know how it goes.

M. Will do

DECOMPRESS

M. Need to get to decompress

C. Go for it

M. Frustrated about PM, finances, FC, so much stuff to do, and weight gain

C. Can I share a perspective?

M. Sure

C. Here are some real opps
- I3 will close
- HL set up
- FB still due
- PAN possible
- Ship possible

M. That's true. These are all possible.

C. Also once you have the new PM, then ST can start

M. Go on

C. How did you feel when R and DJ positioned PM as one of STís three PPs?

M. Made my day. I almost didn't believe it. It was in many ways a huge relief.

C. Let's net it out.

M. Okay

C. You have enough to get you through PM general availability. You have enough to get PM fully funded, right?

M. You're right

C. Focus on I3, HL and FB. Keep after it. Foot on the throat. And as for weight loss, start IF today. Just fing do it! Quit belly aching and get off your *** and do it. No more fíing excuses! I want you to focus on 30 minute increments. STOP eating at 8pm period! You know what you need to do, so do it. Enough! Got it?

M. Got it

C. To summarize you have enough to get you to PM and you need to stop making excuses and being lazy about self-care. Got it?

M. Got it

C. My advice is that you spend sometime today on Why PM, okay?

M. Will do

C. Was this helpful?

M. Yes, it was. It helped me get these emotions off my chest, put things in perspective to see that I have enough and that things can eventually be great.

C. Good. No get after it.

M. You got it. Thanks!

Default Re: Need to vent

M. Need to decompress

C. Go for it

M. I'm so fíing pissed off

C. What about?

M. I'm pissed at SF and Al in particular. Their service has been terrible. Worse than terrible because they have not even responded. Unbelievable! So frustrating. All Al needed to do was let us know she was on the case. I've been frustrated about this since a week ago Friday when we first raised the issue. It's frustrating and angering because I have zero control other than sending emails. I've sent 3 to 5 and no response.

C. What else?

M. I'm also frustrated with ST.

C. How so?

M. Starting with Sh. She's worthless. Just seeing her pisses me off.

C. What else?

M. I'm also upset that DJ did not respond to my email. He completely ignored it. It wasn't my idea. It was fíing Shís. I'm pissed that he never agreed to strategize with me.

C. What else?

M. I'm also upset with Sil.

C. Why?

M. I was the one who introduced her to EU and she never thanked me for it. Now she's saying she wants to back off from ST leaving me holding the bag.

C. What else?

M. I'm anxious about the TG and Sap opportunities

C. Anything else?

M. I'm anxious about the amount of work l still need to do.

C. Specifically?

M. I still need to create the d-tour

C. What else?

M. I need to finish the I3 BD project

C. What else?

M. I still need to finish the A/X listing.

C. What would make you feel better even great?

M. It would be great if:

- SF told us we passed the review. That would be fantastic!
- I got the TG deal. This would be so awesome
- I got the Sap deal. This would be such an incredible relief

C. Here's my take on SF. It will happen. You will get a response from Al on Monday. That's very likely. Wouldn't you say so?

M. I think that is likely. If I don't hear from her by 1pm, I'll email Nik.

C. I know this is q massive deal for you, but it's not like you'll never hear back, right?

M. That's right. It's not like all of a sudden SF is shutting the door on you never to be heard from again. You're right.

C. So, my advice is to wait until 1pm and then raise the issue with Nik.

M. Ok

C. Regarding ST, I suggest you bite the bullet and be a team player. Make an effort to prospecting. Schedule sending the webinar invite on Monday. You'll feel better about it and show you're a team player. Listen, there's always someone challenging to work with anywhere you go. Take the high road. Become the poster child. Okay?

M. That's good advice

C. ST still represents a phenomenal opportunity for you.

M. You're right

C. Move on without Sil. You have SPM 2.0 just around the corner. Just saying you're affiliated with ST is enormous.

M. You're right

C. Isn't Col super excited about the BE program?

M. That's true

C. Didn't DJ say you made significant progress?

M. That's true

C. Didn't Sh and Lisa say it's good to go?

M. That's also true

C. If I recall correctly you have been getting a super positive response to PM, right?

M. Yes, you're right I have. Every single time.

C. And, you my friend have done an outstanding, I mean phenomenal job with the HL training program. This now gives you a complete system.

M. Thanks. I appreciate that. I am very happy with what I created and it is scalable.

C. I know how easy it is to get caught up in the negative and completely negate the positive. That's how the brain works.

M. So I've heard and I believe it.

C. And this is especially true when you have so many crucial issues to deal with. It's easy to get stuck in the ďquicksand.Ē Fortunately, things have picked up for you considerably. My advice is that you turn ST and Sil into super positive opportunities.

M. How so?

C. With ST, have Sil set up the meeting with the marketing person. Have Sil set up a call with Tina to show the BE program. Prep for the call with the team. You did an outstanding job with DJ and the team. Create an email template for ST prospecting. Send the webinar invite to 5 people on Monday. Start thinking about presenting the new PM to the Enterprise team in April. Create the demo tour. Incorporate what you're doing with HL with I360. Get excited about this. Especially, the rollout. Use it as a content development workshop where you're getting buying from the team. Use it as an opportunity to develop a GREAT prospecting course that's even better than STíís. Reference the material and your notes. Kick fíing ***. Show Sil what you created and have her leverage this with EU.

M. These are great ideas! Now I'm fired up. I can use the PB training for anyone outside ST.

C. Exactly. Continue to make an effort with ST because lots of upside, but get ready to put full-court press on PM.

M. Love it

C. Foot on the throat time.

M. Abso****inglutely!

C. Regarding the diet. Start next week when you start getting the K meals.

M. Sounds good

C. Feel better

M. 100%. Thanks so much!

C. You got it

Default Re: Need to vent

M. Need to vent

C. Go for it. Whatís on your mind?

M. Feeling frazzled and frustrated

C. Why?

M. HERE GOES

Iím flustered that CL asked us to make changes at the last second.
Iím flustered that DJ told SL not to rely on CL
Iím flustered that MM said that we canít update PM
Iím flustered that I might lose Cent
Iím flustered that I donít know next steps for SF
Iím flustered that the logo is not ready
Iím flustered that RC expects me to drop everything
Iím flustered that I need to get stuff to TG but canít tonight because have to...
Iím flustered that I donít have a game plan for launching PM
Iím flustered that I have to get up at 5
Iím flustered that I need to fill out another fíing form for PP
Iím flustered that I still have a lot of work to do to show new PM
Iím flustered that I didnít do a great job on the demo because felt rushed
Iím flustered that SL is leaving
Iím flustered that EU already has two customers

C. Did it help to get this stuff off your chest?

M. It did

C. Can I ask a few questions?

M. Sure

C. Is it a good thing to have CL on your side?

M. Sure

C. If Iím not mistaken, you were fired up about PM last week, right?

M. Thatís true

C. It seems to me that SL now being a part of EU can actually be a positive for you. You still have ST as a partner and now you have EU.

M. Thatís true

C. Hereís my advice. Call it a night. You can use the time after the ST meeting to regroup..

M. Ok. Thanks

C. Did this help?

M. It did. I just needed to get all this stuff out of my system. Overall, things are better than ever.

C. Great. Talk later.

DECOMPRESS

M. Need to decompress

C. Go for it

M. Slept so-so last night because I had to get up super early for an important meeting

C. How did the meeting go?

M. It went very well. The net of it is that the team saw value in the offering and that we have clear next steps.

C. Great

M. Iím still upset at DJ for pooping the idea. I hate to say this, but fó him. Heís talking out of both sides of his mouth. On one hand he was the one who asked that we focus on BE. On the other, heís now telling us to be careful with CL. Well, guess what? CL is fired up about this. And CL is the one who has the team to go make it happen. ďThanksĒ for the warning, but f___ you.

C. What else is on your mind?

M. Now that PM is on A/X, Iím nervous about launching it?

C. Why? I thought you were excited about this?

M. Well, I am but now itís for real.

C. Want some advice?

M. Please

C. Ask SL to help you think through how to sign X number of new accounts by end Q2. There is a lot of alignment with what sheís doing at EU, so makes sense to partner. What do you think?

M. I like it. Weíll come up with a launch plan

C. I also suggest that you do a practice demo and review the listing deck. It seems like every time you do a demo, you get fired up more often than not.

M. Okay.

C. What else?

M. Iím nervous about DJ and Cent. I feel terrible that I havenít engaged with DJ in over a month, at least, and am afraid he might have lost interest.

C. My advice is that you send him a heartfelt note tomorrow at the latest.

M. Okay. Have to run.

C. Okay. Was this helpful?

M. Yep. Thanks!

Wow, I loved the way you attacked those problems. That was a learning opportunity for me. Thank you for modelling a new way to deal with my rage and frustration. I feel bad for the emotions you're experiencing. I can relate to having to review your emotions for validity and to avoid not sabotaging yourself. I often don't say anything/respond because I don't know if my feelings are appropriate. This will help me evaluate them more efficiently. This has been so helpful.

DECOMPRESS

M. Need to decompress

C. Go for it. Whatís on your mind?

M. Lots. My call with RK did not go well today. He wanted me to do a lot more than we agreed to. Fortunately, I had documented what we agreed to and was able to show. He and I co-created the agreement. I created many different versions. The last one was what we agreed to. He said we had a ďdisconnect.Ē Thank goodness I had the agreement handy and was able to show it to him. Checkmate. It bothered me because I think very highly of RK and we have a strong personal relationship. I also donít want him to think that Iím not living up to my commitment.

C. Fortunately you were able to put up the agreement up on the screen. You can tell him when you show him that you have his best interest at heart. My advice is that you build a killer BD PB. Make it look fantastic. Make it something you would use for LG. Set aside tomorrow morning to work on this. Over deliver within the context of the agreement.

M. Okay. Thanks.

C. What else?

M. Frustrated that itís taking so fíing long to get the new PM installed. Fó-!

C. Go on

M. Itís been almost a year. Itís so frustrating that itís so fíing difficult.

C. Listen, I can absolutely understand why this is so frustrating. This is your livelihood weíre talking about. Combine this with the uncertainty. It is completely understandable.

M. Yep

C. For grins and giggles letís imagine how the new PM might look.

M. Okay

C. Imagine how great it will be to emphasize the new scoring

M. That will be great. Itís so much easier to explain the calculation.

C. Imagine how great it will be to show how to use PS for scoring

M. This is something that will really resonate with HOS

C. Imagine how great it will be to have the tips show inside of ES

M. Iím really excited about being able to demo this. This the CTC feature. This is DC in a box.

C. Imagine how great it will be to show the B perspective.

M. This will completely align with PN and as far as Iím concerned replace PN. Why would you need PN when itís built into PM?

C. Imagine how clean the CM section look without all the + stuff

M. Yep it will look super clean

C. Imagine how great it will look to have the new PS and DS labels

M. This will be super intuitive.

C. Imagine how nice it will be for PS and DS to have a different color scheme

M. Again this will make PM super intuitive

C. Imagine being able to show the notepad as part of the demo

M. This is a really nice little feature which adds a lot of value. Iíll need to create one for the demo. Iíll also need to recreate the one I use for PB and update the new PB PB.

C. On that note, imagine what a great demo youíll be able to do. Itís already great. And itís about to get even better

M. Absolutely. Iím really happy with the motion I followed yesterday with Pinto. This will be how I run every call from now on. It was a great way to recap the call.

C. Yes, very nicely done

M. Thanks

C. Tell me about USB

M. Oh my. What a great surprise! I was not expecting to see what I saw. Iím so grateful for this. Praise God! He answered my prayer.

C. This has to be a great relief.

M. Itís an enormous relief. It gives me ramp and I still have big input coming from TG and PW. Thank you, God!

C. Iím happy for you

M. Thank you. The key is to now get PM off the ground.

C. Letís use the next conversation with SL to create a cookbook for PB and ST. Lean into ST.

M. Okay

C. On the health front, look into jump and start working out even if itís a super light workout.

M. Okay

C. Also start planning fun. Look into the golf lessons and getting back to the driving range.

M. Okay

C. Also pay SL/SP. Just get that done.

M. Good advice.

C. Was this helpful?

M. Super helpful! Thank you!

C. You got it. Talk soon.
