How to stop struggling with sales, and start getting more clients

You love what you do, and you’re great at it.  But you either avoid sales conversations all together, or, when you have them, you get an objection instead of a sale.  And, you expect the objections, and you’re tired of them, and you can’t find a way around the objections. That leaves you struggling to pay bills, and your dream of financial freedom seems further and further away.  As a creative business owner, you’re a genius at what you create, and you know you’re great at what you do, but proactively selling is something that makes you freeze up or something you ignore all together.  The hardest part about selling as a creative genius can often be the difficulty to separate objection from personal rejection, leaving you yet another reason to opt out of selling.

The problem is, you need more clients. You’d rather wait for referrals.  But waiting for them leaves you waiting for cash, and your revenue flow ends up like a rollercoaster.

Selling doesn’t make you a bad person, but if you think it does, you’re missing out on buckets of cash.

When you join us LIVE, on this exciting and entertaining webinar, you’ll learn powerful keys to create reliable income in your business, without feeling like a used car salesman in the process.  Make a bigger difference, serve more clients and make the money you deserve!

Key Takeaways:

  • The truth about money objections and how they actually HELP you get to “Yes!” every single time.
  • How to help your prospects understand, instantly, that your offer is perfect for them, so they want it, and they gladly pay what you ask.
  • The single mind shift that saves you from sales guilt forever, so you finally make the money you deserve!
