So what’s the worst that can happen? They can say no, right? Throughout your life you will experience people saying no to you. It is not the end of the world. You may have to ask twenty times before you get one “maybe.” If the answer is no, stand up straight, put a smile on your face and in your voice, put out your hand to shake good-bye, look the owner in the eye and thank him/her for their time. You only get one chance to make a good first impression. Be proud of yourself and your business!
