Let me show you how being stalked by a sparrow relates to Ray Higdon.
About a week and a half ago when I woke up and was preparing my morning tea, Ellie told me there was a bird that had been banging into the living room window earlier.
I stepped out onto the porch for a look-see. Nope … no injured birds lying on the floor. WHEW!
In the past … birds have nearly knocked themselves out by doing that, but then got up and flew away after some cuddling and coddling.
Not the case this time.
A little later, sure enough, I heard to “bonk” noise at the front window and stepped away from my desk to see the bird … a sparrow … flying into the window.
And that went on for much of the rest of the day.
Some people mentioned putting newspapers in the window as a deterrent. But there is such a great view out the window … the newspapers would block the view.
It was still cool outside, so Ellie and I haven’t been sitting outside much … Good thing because needless to say, the chairs had bird poop on them.
A day or two went by, and the bird was there each of the days … knocking and pooping.
The next few days were warmer. So out came the bucket of water and a scrub brush to clean the chairs … not once, but each day.
So Ellie came up with an idea. “Let’s hang ribbons from the windows on the outside … for a scarecrow effect!”
I dug out some Christmas ribbons and Ellie put them up. We were sitting outside (after scrubbing the chairs AND the floor) and laughing like a couple of nuts at the ribbons flying in the breeze. Did that help?
Nope! More knocking and pooping. So Ellie decided we didn’t have enough ribbons. She went out and bought some crepe paper ribbons and stuck them up.
By this time, our house looked like an Easter present with yellow, green and lavender crepe paper flying in the breezes. We were laughing even more at this point.
Good thing there are no neighbors right close by – if there were, they might send the men in white jackets after us.
Oh … Did the ribbons help?
Definitely … they helped send the bird around to the back of the house where he now bonks on the sliders in my office. And when the breezes calm down, he goes right back to the front windows.
Who knows … he’s constantly around every day, back and forth between the front and the back.
Our dear friend suggested that our house must look like a piñata!
(As a matter of fact, the sparrow was wearing a little sombrero today)!
I have to admit, he does have the prettiest song that he sings.
As I use the word stalk, it brings to mind that there are certain leaders in the industry whom I “stalk” … every time I see that they are putting on a webinar, I jump on if I’m available.
And this Wednesday Ray Higdon is putting on a Free Webinar.
He’ll be talking about his Proven 1-2 Punch to Make Money on 93% of the conversations with your prospects.
You probably know Ray, but in case you don’t, he’s the man whose real estate investments were in foreclosure a few short years ago. His then girlfriend … now wife … paid his electric bill because he didn’t have the money.
Today? Ray is a multi 7-figure earner who has built an extremely successful business in network marketing within these last few years.
When is the webinar? This Wednesday, 4/20/16, at 9pm ET.
I’m gonna be there.
