The fear of success phobia is very much like the fear of failure: both prevent the sufferer from dreaming and achieving their goals. It might seem weird to fear success; after all what can be more appealing in life than it? However, a little bit of digging in the phobic’s mind shows that fearing success is natural to them, simply because they are not looking for any change.

Often, the individual might be afraid of success owing to the fear of inability to handle fame or wealth it brings.
Lead generation is the lifeblood of all successful businesses. Without leads, you have no customers, and without customers, you have no revenue.
But how many of them convert to sales? One out of 10? One out of 100? What if you could make that rate closer to 95%? Sounds impossible, right?

In many ways, inbound sales calls/leads offer you with significant advantages compared with outbound sales leads generated by strategies such as “cold calling.” In particular, you are benefiting from the fact that these people made the effort to contact you.
