Imagine if you could unlock the true potential of your salesforce by understanding their unique strengths and weaknesses, then tailoring your sales training program to fit each person perfectly.

Last week I received an email that pained me to read. The sender had just shared what she hoped had been an impactful PowerPoint presentation during a networking event we both attended and had asked me for my opinion. After trading emails, she finally sent this: I 1,000% need help, especially as we move into this next phase. I know we are creating something revolutionary, but I do not know how to communicate it clearly. I am giving this presentation next week, and I am nervous that it will flop because it is so much. I could feel her pain. You can feel her pain. We all can feel her pain beca ..read more

You've spent untold hours crafting the perfect high-ticket offer, a comprehensive agency business development course, a point-and-click easy agency pricing template, and then building remarkable landing pages.

by Tom Martin
7M ago
In the high-stakes business development arena, your success hinges on evaluating, pursuing, and, when necessary, knowing when to stop pursuing a lead. While I'm not much of a gambler, the professional poker players' wisdom of "optimal quitting" offers a strategic lens through which you can view your business development efforts. A recent article from Wharton pointed out that "expert players abandon about 80% of their hands in the popular variant of Texas Hold’em, for example, while amateurs stick with their starting cards over half the time." That's a lot of quitting. But the results speak fo ..read more

"Why don't you write up a proposal to [deliver whatever a prospective client is about to hire you or your agency to deliver to them] with a budget and send it over to me to consider?"  This one sentence creates more anxiety, angst, fear and self-doubt in the hearts and minds of freelancers, coaches and agency owners around the world than virtually any other.
