Some business coaches love to kick butt and be hard-nosed bullies. They feel that people need to be pressured and bullied into performing; that aspiring entrepreneurs need to be prodded out of their limiting ‘money mindsets’ that is apparently deterring them from achieving their financial goals.
Tuesday, February 7, 2017 is International Networking Day AND the launch of my long-awaited FUN & easy reading book:
“The Accidental Farmer: Adventures of a Serial Entrepreneur”
I once went to see Kevin O’Leary at a Fireside Chat at Ryerson University’s Ted Rogers School of Management, just to experience him in a more intimate situation. He was as abrasive and blunt as he was on Dragon’s Den. He still said “it was all about the money” and it made me sad. Read what he says about business being war. I hate war and violence and we do not need more of that in our world.
Are you a talented entrepreneur who offers a valuable service BUT cannot articulate that in a way that makes it easy for people to buy from you? Then read on.
Are you selling the invisible, a service that cannot be easily demonstrated like you could with a physical product? Then you really need to know how to sell it. Selling a service is the hardest thing to sell because you cannot show or touch it.
After consulting and coaching small businesses for over 20 years, I’ve determined that these are the 4 essential questions to be answered in order to have a sustainable business that fuels your heart, soul AND bank account!
What do you LOVE to do?
WHO do you love to do it with?
What do you want to CHARGE them?
What is their ROI?
The importance of asking a simple question! Close more business by asking better questions.
