An old adage - but is ‘top of mind’ recently.
If the IRS want ‘a little chat with you’ …. would you ‘do some research’ and then take the case on, or go find a tax accountant?
If you needed medical attention would you have a friend ‘check out the symptoms and then diagnose you - or would you go to a doctor?
If you were sued for malpractice … get a lawyer - or ‘bone up’ on what youneed to know
…. you know the list is endless.
There is a tech podcast I listen to regularly - and a recurring theme is the difficulty of doing sales and marketing …
The solution - apparently - is to do some internet research - and ‘fix the problem’.
As I say - recurring.
I don’t listen to every edition - but I listen enough to be confident in my assertion that ‘they have not ever reached out to a professional sales / marketing person that could help them and I wonder why this is?
I do lay part of the blame at the feet of those people who lead those disciplines. I do understand that there are schmucks in those two worlds that makes you wonder how they make a living - but we also know there are bad lawyers, bad accountants, bad doctors ….
But Sales and Marketing? It can’t be that hard … I’ll read up and solve my problem.
I find that it is tech-oriented people who are particularly flawed when it comes to this kind of ‘thinking’ - and I use that word loosely.
Anyway - that’s all I have to say. Right now I have an app to build this week. It’s all worked out. This afternoon I am going read up on java and python. Then tomorrow I will build my prototype. Should be all done by the weekend.
I mean - it can’t be that hard can it?
