"CANCELED...and­ then I closed it."

****Due to the weather coming in we are going to cancel today's meeting and will reschedule this topic in a few weeks.****

Let's share our stories about closing a business, unexpected or not, and what tips would you share with fellow business owners? As always, consider sharing our table with a business owner or prospective business owner.
Thank you to Alisa Kartch, of Work Life Unleashed, for facilitating our discussion today!

    I hope everyone is safe and warm during the storm...hey, that rhymes! Here in Austin, we spent some time talking about topics...fave was "What Presidential Administration most closely resembles your business model?" Yikes!

    I was surprised that I had not seen the cancellation. Here we haven't seen anything yet so I thought maybe ... On well. See you next week.

    Looks like we're still meeting this morning. Hopefully the snow won't accumulate much before we finish.

    Hi gang. My intention here was closing business - making the sale (as opposed to closing A business). Stories of how you got someone to "bite" when you weren't sure the customer was hooked; how you overcame a price objection; or a value objection; skepticism; competition; personality clash; confusion or miscommunication; etc.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
