Adventures in Door Knocking

Chapter 8

Thursday 10/6/11

43 doors knocked   21 people qualified   21 business cards handed out    

1 hour 10 minutes

I did another evening of door knocking.  I found a lot of people out there tonight and handed out 21 cards in 70 minutes, which I was averaging less than 4 minutes per business card and to get this 5 qualifying questions and the 6th asking for a referral.  I was on fire! One person told me to go away and I did, but will back in 6 months of course! Most of the people were very grateful to see me.


Friday 10/7/11

64 doors knocked    14 people qualified    14 business cards handed out    1 hour 24 minutes

I had a few interesting stories this morning.  First, I met a woman who just moved here and is in the process of going through a short sale where she used to live, in Maryland.  This is not uncommon these days especially since the unemployment rate was just reported at 9% in the US according to  Hence why there are so many people that are still buying and selling. 

Second, I noticed that quite a few people were doing work on their home.  It’s unfortunate that none of them were home as I could have offered them a LOWE’s coupon that could save them up to $10,000 at LOWE’s or Home Depot and it is FREE! Please contact me if you would like one! I also saw a landscaper had left a few beer cans on the lawn.  I wonder if the homeowner knows that he chose this type of hydration versus water and I am curious to see how the lawn comes out. 

Third, I also door knocked an off-duty police officer in his car.  He asked me for a few business cards, as he knows a people in his force that have spoken about getting a divorce and could probably use my help.  I am certainly grateful for the business but I’m kind of hoping that I get some phone calls involving babies and marriages instead.  Either way, I will take good care of them.


Gotta say, I love my job! I love meeting new people, learning their stories and helping them move on with their plans, one family at a time!
