I find that I'm relly nervous to make the "Cold Call" to ask for show bookings. I ask at my shows all of the time, and I'm always turned down. People just keep giving out excuses as to why they are unable to host their own show. I even try to bribe people with 50% off a piece of stoneware if they book during a specific month - I still don't get a response. I now am left with 2 show bookings, and they are not until the first month of June. People keep saying to stick with it, but it can be really discouraging at times. I have a full-time job and don't have a lot of time that I can dedicate to this. I do give it most of my evenings and weekends though. Does anyone have any ideas to get over being nervous to make the Cold Call? I guess I just don't want to keep getting rejected!
