- “You need to find lots and lots and lots of problems during that actual appointment. You need to have specific questions already written down, sitting on a piece of paper. One that you’re actually holding in front of you so that you can ask your prospects those questions. If you don’t have those questions written down in front of you, you are an amateur and you deserve not to win.” – Charles Specht
- “Every single point of communication is about positioning, positioning, positioning, positioning. You are always trying to position yourself better every point of communication either strengthens or weakens the relationship with your prospect. You are either gaining ground or you are losing ground.” – Charles Specht
- “If you show up to the place of business, sitting down with a business owner who has decided to give you an hour of his or her life, to talk about something that is not really interesting to them, that they don’t like… that causes frustration.” – Charles Specht
