Before you shell out $160,000 on a business school education, you might want to consider spending a couple of years as a door-to-door salesman instead. John Paul DeJoria, co-founder of the Patron Spirits Company and John Paul Mitchell Systems, called his three-year stint selling Collier's Encyclopedia one of the most formative experiences of his life. Sara Blakely, the billionaire founder of the shapewear company Spanx, had a similar experience in her eight years working for a company that sold fax machines door-to-door. From cold-calling, Blakely also learned that you have about 15 seconds to capture someone's attention--but if you can make them smile or laugh, you get an extra 15 to 30.
The artist Jeff Koons cut his teeth selling candy door-to-door and then moved on to hawking everything from soft drinks on a local golf course to memberships at the Museum of Modern Art, and mutual funds.
Writing Getting There, I learned how much success in any field depends on persistence, not fearing failure, and getting others to follow your ideas.
In my experience, I have found that mastermind groups are the best place to get initial critical feedback from.
Whether it is your partnership agreement or a client contract, you want to get the best deal possible.

Here we will tell you one interesting story.A young man asked Socrates the secret to success.
That's what I learned as I researched and wrote my new book, Getting There: A Book of Mentors, in which 30 leaders in a broad range of fields share their stories and reveal their secrets to navigating the rocky road to the top.
She recalled, "I would wake up in the morning and drive around cold-calling from eight until five. With no money to grab people's attention the conventional way, through advertising, she decided to infuse her product with humor wherever she could, from naming it Spanx to writing "We've got your butt covered!" on the package. What better way could there be to acquire these essential traits than by actually hitting the street?

The boy struggled to get out but Socrates was strong and kept him there until the boy started turning blue.

I was surprised to find out how many of them credited early shoe-leather sales jobs for equipping them with the skills they needed for their ultimate success. The people in charge of hiring would look us up and down and dissect us right in front of our faces.
Socrates pulled his head out of the water and the first thing the young man did was to gasp and take a deep breath of air.
I saw my business card ripped up at least once a week, and I even had a few police escorts out of buildings. He recounts that at least four out of every five salons turned him down--but he knew better than to let that discourage him. It wasn't long before I grew immune to the word 'no.'" When she started Spanx, she needed to find someone to make a prototype of her product, and she began by telephoning local hosiery mills.
It hurt at first, but I soon learned that it was just part of the process." She eventually became a successful Sports Illustrated swimsuit model, but as she got older she wanted to pursue a career that was not dependent on her looks. After years of failing with various start-ups (a microbrewery, a skin-care line, and several art projects), she finally launched her own brand, kathy ireland Wordlwide, with a line of socks. So she drew on a lesson she had learned from cold-calling: Face-to-face makes a huge difference. I am becoming more peaceful, happier.To realize some of the instances that have occurred already, I want to blog them here, as a reminder of how good my life can be. She took a week off of work and drove around North Carolina, popping by many of the same mills that had already rejected her on the phone.
Then they choose one of the Birthday photos to win a fabulous Ice cream cake (random drawing). They thought I was nuts.As the announcements began, the kids thought there was an unlikely chance as there were many birthday announcements. I just do.Sure enough, he was chosen as the winner of the Ice cream cake for today!Also this morning I was called to go into my youngest child’s school to meet with one of the teachers. I had recently done much work for the school, with their school clothing order and promo products for their 100 year anniversary.


To my absolute delight, she presented me with an amazing Spring Basket of flowers for my yard; it is HUGE, wonderful, beautiful and fragrant. I took as much money out of my different accounts as I could to produce the $377, actually I rounded it up to $400, and paid the bill immediately, even though it left me with no money for any of my other bills. I hadn’t really even thought of having enough money for fuel to drive there and back, I was just excited to go. When we arrived in the city where my Father lives, I just had the idea to stop into a bank that I had an old Savings account at.
It was set up from a previous vehicle loan, and even though the loan had been paid off for many many years, I still allowed the bank to take an automatic monthly withdrawl from my main account – to be put into this account. I stopped in at the city branch and bit the bullet – I told the teller I needed to pay $5000 of my life savings to this credit card bill to help reduce it. Even though $5000 is almost a surreal amount of money to me, I just released it from my savings to the Bill, all in a matter of a few minutes.
Then driving to my Father’s house, I kept telling myself positive thoughts like the book had outlined. The kids and I enjoyed the Ice Cream Cake with him, and he just LOVED the card we had chosen for him.When it was time to leave to return home, my Dad followed us outside to my Van to say good-bye. Except for that envelope my Dad gave me.I looked inside to see a thick stack of $100 bills.
I went to use the machine and counted out 12 of the $100 bills, there was still a lot more money in the evelope. I deposited the 12 bills and wanted to quickly return to my house so I could see just how much money was there. FIVE THOUSAND DOLLARS.The exact amount of my life savings that I had released only a few hours early, had come back into my life the very same day! After we had my daughter’s birthday cake my Grandma asked to see me alone, in the bathroom actually where we could have privacy.
To spend on my home, or something personal for myself, as a gift from her to me.Again I was amazed at these events unfolding.
