As I said, all about me on this one. Not going to waste more time or thought on a person like that. So why do anything that might mess up my mental outlook?

Also why I just ignore and don't respond to most negative comments prospects say. Nothing to gain from it, so I just move on and focus on the objective.

Of course you already know that the former insurance agent makes for the worst prospect.

But I did one a few years ago that after I did sell him we started talking about the business and I just asked him why he got out, chargebacks?

He said that was part of it but mainly he just didn't like it. Then he went on to say that he found out that chargebacks were illegal.

I told him someone needs to call the sheriff then because they are still doing it.

That is hilarious. I'm not surprised, but still hilarious.

I have sold a few over the years, but few and far between. I am quicker to dump them than just about anyone else. As soon as I hear one word about "This is how I did it..." or "Back in the day..." Good-bye!

Maybe it's area dependent. I don't know.
Possibly, or I have been doing it wrong...back to the drawing board.

This is good, there's no minimum requirements. They are generated on an "As requested" basis, so I get them when I can work them so they are still hot. There is several ways you can do this, you just have to learn how, it's actually quite cost effective.
You have no clue what you are talking about but buh-bye anyway!!
