4 Sales Conversation “no-no”s

no-no-no-310x296Over the last few weeks, I’ve been sharing with you a lot of tools about successful enrollment conversation – because you can have the BEST marketing or referrals EVER, but if you don’t know how to have powerful sales conversations, none of that matters.

You need to master sales calls in order to make those sales.

Through the years, I’ve seen a lot of sales “mistakes” made by amazing entrepreneurs (myself included!) – mistakes that can cost you conversions, cost you potential income, and keep you from making the impact you’re meant to make.

Here are a few of the most common “no-no”s I see: READ MORE

It’s your birth-rite to feel sacred

butterflyIt is time to reclaim the most sacred and alive parts of yourself, to unleash your inner wild woman, to uncover the ancient wisdom stored deep inside of you, and to harness all of this to midwife massive transformation & healing for your clients.

It is your birth-rite to walk this Earth embodied and empowered.
It is your birth-rite to fully align with the magic of the Earth, the moon and all her cycles.

It is time to claim your sacred role as Priestess and create groundbreaking results with your clients.
And it is time to come home to yourself.

18 years ago, I was disconnected from my deepest self, I felt empty about most things, and I wasn’t able to unleash my full potential when it came to supporting others in transformation. READ MORE

My favorite Springtime Ritual for Business & Life

spring-06-310As you may know, I love rituals. I use them to create peace, balance, joy and success in all areas of my life, and I take special care to use the power of the Seasons to do all this.

Springtime is the moment of Re-birth.

It’s the time when the days are finally as long as the nights, the animals begin to come out of their hibernation and give birth to new little ones, colorful life and buds appear on trees and bushes, and it even smells like new beginnings and new life in the air.

Our lives reflect what happens in nature: It is so normal and natural for things to get dusty during January and February, even if you were on fire for them while making your New Year’s Resolutions.

Why?

6 tools to create deeper transformation for your clients

transformationIn my 15 years of facilitating Transformational Experiences for thousands of individuals and groups, I’ve come to learn that there are certain skills and elements you need to master as a leader and facilitator in order to be successful at creating lasting shifts, healing and real openings for your participants.

In fact, what I’ve come to see is that without these tools, things can go very, very wrong – your workshops can fall flat or not go deep enough, or someone in the group will dominate and upset everyone else, or you will misuse your energy and feel exhausted and spent.

Here is a snapshot of some of the most valuable tools I’ve developed over hundreds and hundreds of rituals and workshops:

  1. Create and Hold a Tight and Safe Container:

    This is the most important tool to facilitating any kind of ritual of transformational experience for an individual or group. If your container is leaky, you will find that participants get bored or don’t go as deep as they could, or get upset at you or others in the group.

    From the very beginning – literally from the moment you walk in the room – you must make sure you are creating a very tight container, an environment that feels safe enough for your participants to open up, be vulnerable, share with you and the group, and transform.

    And you must make sure you hold that container throughout the work so that it remains tight and doesn’t fall apart.

Lessons for your Biz from the Presidential Race

For as long as I’ve been an entrepreneur, I’ve noticed that there are many lessons for business owners to learn about marketing from politicians and visa versa. It’s fascinated me endlessly over the years, and believe it or not, has actually helped me grow my business in ways I would have never imagined. I’ve learned from what politicians do very well, and I’ve also learned a lot from their (many) mistakes.

After all, politicians need to promote themselves just like entrepreneurs do — and they are especially similar to service-preneurs because just like service-preneurs, politicians themselves ARE their product. They need to be branded and to do outreach and communicate their value in order to gain voters and followers.

Of course, there is a ton about politics I dislike and would never recommend for authentic, in-integrity business owners. But there is also some really great stuff.
