Decide to write a book about managing large customer service departments, with the idea of interviewing 100 of the best decision makers.
You’ll get no resistance from anyone because they never get asked to be interviewed, let alone star in a book.
Compile the content, get a cover designed, stick it up on Amazon and send them a physical copy with a thank you note and a one time, consultation on something that can save them money and look like a hero to the CEO.
From then forward, don’t try to get appointments with new people, send a copy of
your book with a bottle of wine and a letter…
