Have you ever had a project go bad, whether in work or life or anything and somebody you or someone else said? Yeah, I should have seen that coming. There were a couple red flags. Red flags are an analogy that people are very comfortable with using. They understand it. They know that it means there was a sign of something bad to come and I ignored it.
And now I'm suffering the consequences. What's interesting is there are many different flags in racing, not just the red flag. There's also yellow flags and green flags. So in this course, I want you to be thinking of three main flags, red, yellow, and green, and I'll explain each one and how it applies to your sales process.
As a freelancer in car racing, the three flags that we're going to talk about and their associated meanings are a green. Green means go slam on the pedal and take off full speed ahead.
