Free Giveaways Help Your Business
Justin Krane - Money Strategist for Business Owners

Those Wetzel Pretzel people got me! I’m walking in the mall, minding my own business, and there they are – those salespeople with those yummy samples. I take a free sample, my kids take one too – and the next thing I know, I am buying 3 pretzels and 3 strawberry lemonades for $17!! I went from taking their free giveaways to buying something.

What’s going on here?!?

By getting free giveaways I get a chance to see/feel/experience what I would get if I bought the whole thing (or more). I got to try it out and see if I liked it. The last thing I want to do is have buyer’s remorse. I don’t want to regret the fact that I bought something that I shouldn’t have. Is it just me or do you think this way too?

What Is Your Money Story?
Admin Text-Only Editing - Text Only Admin

This may be a controversial article for some of you.  It may hit you in that money wound trigger spot.  Alas, I encourage you to keep reading and give this some serious thought.  It just may transform your sales conversations, your business and maybe even your life.

I was on the phone with a client the other day and she mentioned that she was having trouble with the money objection in her sales conversations.   She said, “Monica, when a person tells me that she is really struggling around money, I have a really hard time”.

I asked her to describe the last time she was struggling around money.  Hot tip:  if you are struggling with a particular objection – it’s usually because it is triggering something within you.

How to Turn Off Potential Clients Online
Admin Text-Only Editing - Text Only Admin

The main reason why car salespeople have such a bad reputation is because we as consumers hate being sold to.

Have you ever noticed how a sale goes much smoother when you’re actually active in the process and prepared to handle it?

Take for example a time when you wanted to buy a new computer. You went to Best Buy, marched into the computer department and started looking at the difference between all of the available models. When it was time for the sales representative to approach you, you actually didn’t cringe. Why? Because you were prepared, you were ready for it…the sales process was welcome and you were expecting the money conversation to happen.

As a business owner working to market and sell your business online you need to avoid developing a poor reputation. The last thing you want to do is be blocked or reported. So instead of coming across too strong online, develop a style that is conducive to future conversations and or sales.

3 Simple Tips on Using Your Business Card As a Client Generating Tool
Fabienne Fredrickson - Founder of (Previously

Usually, most business cards serve only two specific functions:
1) Provide your contact information
2) Inform the holder of what you do

However, your business card is an advertising tool that can do so much more! If you make your card memorable and use a “call to action”, then you can engage prospects and land new clients.

Since you have the cards printed any way, use all the available “real state” fully and make it work for you. You can even print on the back side. If you have the Client Attraction System you’ll find a section on making your business card a client attraction tool.

Goals and Values: Sync Them to Power Up Your Time
Paula Eder - The Time Finder Expert, Founder of Finding Time

Goals and Values:  When you have them in sync, the sky is the limit.  But when they are out of sync, you’re likely to find yourself mired in confusion and procrastination.

This recent post on The Happiness Project takes a quick look at Decoy Habits – and speaks to this dilemma about goals and values.  Here’s what Gretchen Rubin writes:

A decoy habit is a habit that a person claims to want to adopt—but really doesn’t intend to do. Often, decoy habits reflect other people’s values or priorities. “I want to cook dinner every night.” “I want to finish my Ph.D. thesis by the end of the year.” “I want to give up coffee.”

The decoy provides cover—we don’t have to acknowledge the habits that we actually follow, because there’s this other, better habit that we intend to adopt.

Why Being Completely Unique is Impossible, and How You Can Still Stand Out
Holly Chantal - Founder of The Land of Brand: Branding Strategist and Website Designer

This week was Brand Promise week in the Branding Game. To give you a little background this is where we examine what makes participants unique from 4 different angles and find the common thread that becomes foundation of their brand.

What often comes up is that the common thread or what we define as a participants “uniqueness” isn’t actually unique at all and there are other solopreneurs conveying the same message.

The truth is, nothing is ever truly unique. There will always be someone that has already gone before you and that’s ok.

It’s ok because even though your message may be the same, how you deliver that message, how clients experience working with you, and why that message is important to you will be different and they all add up to a unique brand!

How To Gracefully Handle The Breakdown Before The Breakthrough
Admin Text-Only Editing - Text Only Admin

Every time I lead a workshop or speak as a guest expert at someone else’s event, I’m asked, “Kendall, we’ve watched you make incredible shifts in your energy, your income and your impact…what did you do to make this happen so quickly?”

Here’s HOW I made this transformation happen. And how I personally handle the breakdowns that often come right before the breakthroughs…

First, understand that the mechanics of starting and growing a business are actually pretty simple and straightforward. They are:

  • determine your niche
  • generate consistent leads
  • make offers that people want
  • consistently close sales
  • deliver your services
  • take care of your clients (think exceeding expectations here)

Is This You?
Admin Text-Only Editing - Text Only Admin

There seems to be a mindset among many coaches, healers and spiritual entrepreneurs that prosperity is beyond their capacity or competence. It’s difficult for them to imagine they can enjoy a 6-figure income.

Is it possible to do this? Of course it is. And not only can you create a nice 6-figure income doing what you love, you can create it with clients eager to pay you the fees you deserve and they’ll even thank you for it!

How can you create a successful business, have a waiting list of clients and make a lot of money in the process?

I want to talk about this for a moment. Every time I see a coach, healer or spiritual entrepreneur break through that illusionary ceiling, I get really excited.
