Not Quite Golden: Never made it to Chelsea Hotel

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

  In music and writing, one of those had been being part of the ethos at the Chelsea Hotel.  Different professions have different markers for success.    Now, those of us in the arts who are not quite golden and never penetrated that atmosphere never will.    The place closed down to guests. Immediately on hearing that news, I took out my meditation book "Nothing Special: Living Zen" by Charlotte Joko Beck.

Stop making these two common HUGE proposal mistakes

Are sales objections getting in your way?

SpeakerSue Says...

But the fact that they said, “I love your hotel but your prices are too high, your ballroom too bland and your move-in schedule unreasonable” is – cue the choir – “Hallelujah” to my ears! Even if they left off the “I love your hotel” bit, they are at least still interested or they would have gone to radio silence or emailed “no” (which can also be a question, btw.). The only thing better than hearing a sales objection is booking the business without any questions.
