We all hear: There just aren’t enough hours in the day! We are, as a populace, constantly busy and forever wishing we had more time for the things we need and want to do. Well, sometimes we have to make that time.
Saying we can’t do something because we don’t have the time for it is an excuse—and a bad one at that. If we don’t start calling ourselves out on our excuses, we’re never going to have the lives we want. It’s time to sit down and examine what’s important to you.
It’s no secret that the world, in large part, revolves around money. The sales industry is no exception; often the hardest part of closing a deal is negotiating all the little details and associated costs. How is your current pricing structure serving you in that regard?
What if I told you there was a way to eliminate the headaches of negotiation in your business? And that it would not only make your life easier but increase your business? Could a fixed pricing structure be the right move for you?
Many times at the beginning of my coaching sessions, I meet resistance. I have clients tell me that I seem to have it all together and they just can’t imagine doing what I do. Let me set the record straight right now: I struggle too! Sometimes you have to fake it.
I’ve faced a lot of big mountains lately, and I have felt overwhelmed. So my new mantra is, “I can do hard things!” It might seem simple, but it’s true. I can do hard things. And so can you. Want to know how?
We live busy lives. Most of us are juggling quite a few balls at all times, so it makes sense that we need a way to keep things straight. Enter the humble to-do list.
It may seem like a simple thing: You make a list of what you have to do, and then you go do it, right? Then why are so many people struggling to accomplish the tasks they set for themselves? They’re making three major mistakes.
Have you ever come back from presenting to a prospect and felt sure you’d won their business? You felt it in your bones—the account was yours. Then a few days go by, and you don’t hear from them. So you follow up.
You’re certain that will do the trick. But then, crickets. You get completely ghosted. Where did things go wrong? And how can you make sure you get that callback?
The end of 2019 is quickly approaching, and with it comes all the usual nostalgia regarding the year’s ups and downs. Everyone wants to finish the year with a bang. But I had a realization the other day that came as a surprise.
Have you taken a moment to realize that not only is the year ending, but the DECADE is ending as well? That’s right, people! We’re closing the book on the teens and entering the ‘20s. As we approach this monumental moment, how should we reflect, celebrate, and prepare to finish strong this decade?
I’m hearing some wild rumors going around. Word on the street is that prospecting has changed, and we need to get with the times and ditch the phone. It seems I need to set the record straight.
People are making scores of excuses these days about why they can’t pick up a phone. They’re sending emails or messaging prospects on LinkedIn in the hopes that a truly brilliant message will get them a reply. That’s simply not how prospecting works. And I’ll tell you why.
