3. Get outa there! Particularly if you work from home, it's so important to just simply TAKE A BREAK. Turn off computer, hang up phone, shut down fax machine and get outa there! Go for a walk, pet dog, find a baby to play with... do ANYTHING that's completely different than having your nose to grindstone!
It sounds trite, but a change really IS as good as a rest!
4. Do some innovative thinking. Brainstorm some new, creative ways to jump-start your sales. I remember reading somewhere about a guy that was trying really hard to get an appointment with CEO of a big company and not having any luck. Finally, he bought a cheap pair of shoes, put ONE of them in a box and mailed it to CEO with a note that said 'Just trying to get a foot in door.' He got his appointment - AND landed account.
5. Spend some time with someone who loves you 'no matter what.' I know, that sounds pretty 'un-businesslike,' doesn't it? But what better way to reassure yourself that you can't take it personally, and that YOU'RE okay, even if business really stinks right now!
I've tried all of these methods, and every one of them has been successful - after all, I'm still in business!
