Entrepreneurs Need to Stay in the Conversation
Staying in the conversation around being a successful entrepreneur that is!
I LOVE what I do and I LOVE supporting and training entrepreneurs like you, new or seasoned on what you can do to jumpstart your business, marketing, websites, mindset, sales, team and even how to generate more clients through speaking, writing books, hosting events, retreats, online memberships and so much more.
I’ve been doing this for 17 years now and I can’t even imagine doing anything else. You see, I’ve worked really hard building my own business over this time and I still continue to invest in trainings and workshops and masterminds all the time. I know how important it is to keep “honing my skills” – especially with regard to marketing and sales!
I always say you need to “stay in the conversation” to keep up with what’s going on in the marketplace… regardless of what you’re selling or what industry you’re in.
I remember selling door-to-door when I worked for the local newspaper. I’d go around to businesses every day trying to sell them ad space in the paper (yes, it was a popular and good thing to do back then). Some would slam the doors in my face, some would welcome me in and listen and others would say “I tried that and it didn’t work”. I could always teach someone something though about marketing and advertising if they would just listen to what I had to say… many times sharing OTHER ways they could attract new customers, even if they didn’t run an ad with me.
Either way, I was top in sales because IT WAS ALL ABOUT RELATIONSHIPS and I knew it way back 20 years ago.
Before I worked for the newspaper, I had a few other Marketing Consultant or Marketing Director jobs and I also did even harder door-to-door sales… residential!! OMG that is tough let me tell you! I was selling coupon books for local auto service shops or restaurants and I’d only make $10/sale back then… my goal was to knock on 100 doors to get to my goal of 10 sales!! Can you believe it? $100 bucks per day is all I strived for back then…
I’ve had BIG MINDSET SHIFTS since then about what I am worth, what I want, etc. But it was the best thing I did frankly because I can take a NO like nobody’s business!! (A very good characteristic to have when you’re offering and selling YOURSELF.)
You know what though, that’s where I really learned to be more diligent with my day-to-day revenue generating activities! I had to be. I had to be assertive, productive, motivated, period; otherwise I couldn’t pay my bills or eat!
I find that this is THE ONE SKILL or learned behavior I guess it is, that I’d say 95% of entrepreneurs don’t have (but you can learn). They don’t take CONSISTENT DAILY ACTION TOWARDS MAKING SALES.
Either it’s due to lack of confidence, knowledge, know-how, courage, time or frankly just motivation… some are just too “comfortable” to “get to work” like you need to in order to really grow your business.
There is no magic pill to make you an overnight success, it takes work… BUT it doesn’t have to be “hard work”!
When you LEARN WHAT TO DO AND HOW TO DO IT and then you can even delegate some of it or systematize some of it, it is a lot easier on you (the business owner), and THAT’s what I LOVE to teach you how to do!!
If you haven’t attended one of my live events yet and you’re remotely curious about what we do at these events that makes them SOOOOO DIFFERENT than other conferences and business or marketing events that you may have attended, please do so. The next one is this coming Spring… but go check the event webpage for what’s coming up and what you can attend; it might be a live event or a virtual training!
Ever feel like you’re the BEST KEPT SECRET?
I do too! Yep, that’s right… even with all the marketing, emails, social media, speaking and traveling that I do, I still often feel like more people need to know about me because I am 200% confident that I CAN SAVE ANY ENTREPRENEUR THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS OR MONTHS OF TIME when we show you how to PRIORITIZE better in your business, how to GET ORGANIZED, and get much more CLEAR & FOCUSED on what you’re doing.
I’m constantly working on how to reach more people and I do a LOT of marketing! What kind of results are YOU seeing from what YOU’RE doing?
Please let me help you if any of this resonates with you…
If you can come to an event AWESOME!!
If not though, don’t let that stop you and don’t use that as an excuse to stop you in your tracks… recognize that you’re just sabotaging yourself.
There are many other ways to get the help, advice, resources and community that you need to be as successful as you want as soon as you want BUT… you have to WANT IT AND TAKE ACTION and DO SOMETHING different that you have before.
Let me help you get more clients consistently!
