🧵 Cold Calling / Prospecting: Nothing New

Much of the conversation on Twitter and LinkedIn during the past several weeks has been around the topic of cold calling and prospecting.

More photos at the end of the 🧵 #ThrowbackThursday ImageImage
2/ In the world of prospecting, “cold calling” should be something done only within the first year of your prospecting campaign. After that, the majority of your prospecting calls will be warm calls because prospects will already know you.
3/ As you change your focus, or want to communicate with new entrants into your marketplace, you will continue to have to make those cold calls but if your target audience remains fairly consistent, the majority of your calls will be warm.

Settle in, Kansas K-12 friends. I want to share a #ThrowbackThursday 🧵 to reminisce about the creation the school finance formula. 1/
I’ll skip the backstory on our legal battles prior to the Gannon lawsuit other than to remind that our Kansas constitution has had a clause regarding the funding of public schools (originally referred to as common schools) since inception. All K-12 decisions track to that 2/
Although the Montoy case was settled in 2006, the #ksleg never reached the settlement amount due to the Great Recession. That’s when I began to focus on advocacy for our public schools. My kids were young & directly affected. 3/

All through primary school I was the second best from behind until primary 5. As far back as I could remember (pry 1) I didn't know anything...I just wanted to play. I was a pure & unadulterated olodo.
My best friend then, Dayo, was the last in class. We were buddies, 2 correct olodos, lol.

When I got to primary 5, sometime during the early part of 1st term, my mom walked into my class. I startled & was wondering why she is here all of a sudden, not telling me before
I left home that she would be coming over. I somehow heard her whisper to my teacher, Mr Afolabi (God bless him wherever he is), that "Pls handle my son with iron hand."

Ah mogbe! What did I do? Truth is, I have been a burden to my mom as per my "olodoism".

CN Tod

Ungefähr jetzt vor 14 Jahren wollte ich (schwanger, 6 Wochen vor ET) den Kurzen (2-1/2 Jahre) für einen Mittagsschlaf ins Bett legen.

Wir lagen also zusammen in seinem Bett im abgedunkelten Zimmer, als er auf einmal panisch aufkreischte und ...
... immer wieder
"Da is a Mann! Da is a Mann" schrie während er zur Kinderzimmertür zeigte.
Irgendwann stutze er, lachte erleichtert und rief "Mann is da Popa! Da, Popa!" (Popa = Opa).
Danach schlief er ein.
Etwa eine Stunde später kam der erste Anruf eines besorgten Kollegen meines Vaters.
Papa sei nicht zur Arbeit gekommen, habe sich nicht krank gemeldet und man erreiche ihn nicht.

The @MNDarkClouds have displayed int'l flags to represent MN⚽ players since the MN Thunder (1990-2009).

Around 2012-13, I reached out to @NealSLogan to ask to help with the flag display. He didn't trust me at first, but Aug. 3, 2013 Mike Petersen trusted me with a marine flare. Aug. 3, 2013 MNUFC (NASL) v...
Eventually, Neal caved and let me set up flags at NSC Stadium in Blaine when he couldn't make a game.

Flash forward to 2023
Neal, Lara, Jen, and I installed the flags for this year's #MNUFC players ahead of Snowpener 3.0 ImageImageImageImage
Also from Mar. 10,

I keep getting messages asking "did you know Richard Spencer says he's changed? What are your thoughts?"

I don't have time to break it down more fully at the moment, so to tide you over for when I do, I'll touch on my assessment of his new stance below as briefly as I can:

Grabbing 5 minutes to address this Obvious Subject Is Obvious discussion.

It shouldn't even take that long, really.

#ThrowbackThursday. When #NevrePoilievre not only amplified the blatant lie made up by #Conservative MP Mark Strahl, but PP used the lie to data mine off it as well. #PierrePoilievreIsBroken #PierrePoilievreMustGo #PierrePoilievreIsLyingToYou #cdnpoli #EmergenciesAct Image
And of course, #ICYMI, #PierrePoilievreMustGo figured that since the #BrianeFromChilliwack lie worked so well, that he’d make up his own fictitious ‘victim’. #MustafaFromCalgary.

Thanks @JohnCRoscoe for this. Apparently you can’t even start the process of getting married in Cuba from 🇨🇦 w/o a copy of your passport. Once again #PierrePoilievreIsLyingToYou. Either that or he’s a gullible fool. Both options make him unfit for public office. #WhereIsMustafa Image

@ASRA_Society @ESRA_Society @amit_pawa @EMARIANOMD @KalagaraHari Let's start with interscalen brachial plexus block...I mean, for shoulder is there anything better? There are some nuances with needle position--should we go intraplexus or perplexus? I have some thoughts...#Blocktober22 @claralexlobo @Jerryblocksthat

Morning! It's #Blocktober 13th and it's also #ThrowbackThursday!! Today let's talk about all our fave lower limb block techniques--what's the one you CAN'T live without?? (best with 🔊) @ASRA_Society @ESRA_Society @LasraAnestesia @AoraIndia @ASA_Australia
@ASRA_Society @ESRA_Society @LasraAnestesia @AoraIndia @ASA_Australia PENG block is one of our go-to techniques for hip fracture as well as THA. It's motor-sparing (usually...) and in RCTs compares well with fascia iliaca. Who's using PENG in their practice? @amit_pawa @EMARIANOMD @KalagaraHari @ajrmacfarlane

@ASRA_Society @ESRA_Society @LasraAnestesia @AoraIndia @ASA_Australia @amit_pawa @EMARIANOMD @KalagaraHari @ajrmacfarlane The SIFI block is our true 3-in-1 and a solid player in the pantheon of blocks for lower limb trauma and elective surgery. Any SIFI fans out there?? #Blocktober22 @claralexlobo @HoltzMaggie @dr_rajgupta @dr_tgro @rosie_hogg @Nadia_Hdz_MD @Steve_Coppens

#ThrowbackThursday, a reminder of Stephen Harper - the man who handpicked #NevrePoilievre, mentored him & helped install him as #cpcldr (using dirty tricks). A man who feels right at home with authoritarians. #PierrePoilievreIsLyingToYou #cdnpoli ImageImageImage
#ThrowbackThursday, remember all the ways in which the #CPC sold out 🇨🇦. Remember all the malicious ways they used (abused) power. #NeverVoteConservative #NevrePoilievre #cdnpoli ImageImageImageImage
#ThrowbackThursday, Harper & #CPC were, and are, very cosy with neo-fascists. #NeverVoteConservative #cdnpoli #NevrePoilievre ImageImageImageImage

The attack on Kalakuta by “unknown soldiers” in 1977 brought the music career of late FATAI ROLLING DOLLARS to a halt. With all his instruments burnt, it was almost the end of the road for the superstar who went on to become a guard,just to earn a living..
For 30 years, a career that was once the envy of upcoming musicians was dislodged and he was confined to the walls of a room face-me-i-face-u with kids. This was a man that had travelled to 8 European countries, performed before kings and even started music before Fela Anikulapo
Make no mistake, Rolling Dollars was a dogged fighter who didn’t give in to tribulations. Even after he was attacked by armed robbers and hospitalised during the course of his new job, he was still performing as a chorister in his church just to earn some stipends.

The Ypres area of Belgium—where Passchendaele is located—was the scene of many devastating battles, including the first recorded use of poison gas. Ypres was also the last portion of Belgium that was not in German hands, so it held great symbolic meaning to the Allies. 3/11 A soldier walking through a...

#ThrowbackThursday by DTB [@DTBKenya]:

1. Upon completion of 60 years as Imam, the Ismaili community commemorated Mawlana Sultan Muhammad Shah’s Diamond Jubilee by weighing the imam against diamonds.

More than 0.5M pounds of diamonds were collected.

#BankWithUsBankOnUs ImageImage
2. Some of the funds were used to create the Diamond Jubilee Investment Trust Limited, a precursor to DTB Kenya, which was officially incorporated in Dar-es Salaam and then moved to develop branches in Kenya and Uganda.

#BankWithUsBankOnUs Image
3. In 1965, DJIT was split into three companies – DJIT (Kenya), DJIT (Tanzania) and DJIT (Uganda).

It transformed itself from a community-based finance house into a growing non-bank financial institution (NBFI).
