For this one, you must hustle a soul from a prospect.
THE DEAL (any gender, mid twenties through late life)
Here's what I can do for you, no charge up front:
Leading roles in thirty movies. Two Oscars. Three cover stories on Time Magazine. And by the time you pass away, you'll be worth sixty million dollars.
After you die, we talk. I'm not going to lie to you, okay? You get what you want for the rest of your life... and I get you for the rest of the afterlife.
But, but, but, stay with me here, alright? You know all the horror stories of fire & brimstone? No. No. My place is nothing like that. You don't have to worry about that. I mean look at ME. Do I look anything like a...? Well, anyway...
Listen: There's been a lot of stuff said about me. But you ask any one of my top employees. I run a very clean operation. No games, no deception. You know why? Because I don't HAVE to deceive people. Because I offer a good service that is in high demand. I can give people what they want. And you can ask any one of my top employees about their experience. I can set up coffee meetings with you and them, as many meetings as you like. They got plenty of time in their schedule to chat.
But I don't have much more time, here... I'm sorry to say that but it's true... I can only schedule our next conference twenty years from now, at best. You want to wait for that? Totally fine. But in the next five minutes, I'd just like to review my idea of a timeline for your success.
You got five minutes?
