Fernando's Big Win of the Week During one of our recent coaching calls, Fernando shared his big win with the group. After years in the restaurant business and construction, he decided to take a leap into the world of pressure washing. The initial months were tough as he experimented with residential door-to-door approaches without much success. However, a pivotal moment occurred when he realized he could leverage his expertise in restaurants and construction.
Leveraging Experience: Targeting What You Know Fernando identified that his strengths lay in his knowledge of the restaurant industry and construction. Instead of persisting with unsuccessful residential strategies, he started targeting his familiar territories. The results were astonishing. In just three to four weeks, Fernando secured monthly accounts with three different restaurants and became the go-to guy for post-construction cleanup with four contractors. These accounts amounted to a substantial annual income, proving that leveraging what you know can yield remarkable results.
The Epiphany: Leveraging Who You Know Fernando's breakthrough came when he decided to leverage his existing contacts in the restaurant business and construction. By reaching out to managers and owners he knew, he secured lucrative contracts, highlighting the power of personal connections. His strategy mirrored advice often given in various industries, emphasizing the importance of utilizing your network and showcasing what you bring to the table.
Fernando's Message: Leverage Who You Know and What You Know Fernando's parting words during the coaching call were clear: for those still struggling, leverage who you know and, more importantly, leverage what you know. His journey from pizza delivery to a thriving pressure washing business serves as a testament to the transformative potential of recognizing and capitalizing on your strengths.
