Stories B4 Statements
Which comes first, the story or the statement? When you’re trying to implement ethical influence into your sales process, the best way to start is with a story. I’m not sure if you’ve noticed but that is exactly how I start each and every one of my episodes.
First, what is the difference between a story and statement? A story is a narrative intended to engage, amuse, or instruct listeners or viewers. Statements are written or spoken expressions intended to persuade listeners or viewers.
Dale’s Magic Formula
When you’re looking to sell your products or services, it’s not the head of your customer that you’re trying to win. Instead, you’re trying to win their hearts. What’s the best way to do this? By telling a story that has your client or customer demanding to work with you.
Dale Carnegie came from humble means but he was driven to be and do more. He completed high school and went on to college, but in that time he learned all about the art of selling. He’d always been an influential sp
Calculate Your Worth
Would you say your net worth affects your self-worth? For many, this is a true statement. Not because money is everything, but because when you make more money your mind believes you are worth more. Why does this matter?
Back in 2003 I had just come off of making my first million dollars online. It was during this time that I would take a limo to and from the airport when I was leaving on business trips. The limo driver was a friend of mine and I enjoyed my time on the trips, but the trips cost about $6,
History’s Greatest Salesman
Selling through collaboration rather than confrontation is a key skill that most successful salespeople cultivate to their advantage. One of the greatest salesmen in history used this same skill to sell the hope of Christianity to the Greeks. Who was this amazing salesman?
Saul of Tarsus was a tentmaker and a Jew who was staunchly against the movement of Christianity. In fact, he likely was responsible for the deaths of several people. It wasn’t until he was traveling to Damascus that he had a vision th
Anatomy of Movements
When you create a movement you create a community of members who are highly engaged with you and amongst themselves. Creating a movement is significantly more lucrative than finding a market because of that engagement. I’m sharing everything you need to know about the elements of a movement, why they outperform markets, and how you can monetize them.
I didn’t truly realize the significance of creating a movement until the end of 2008. We were in the middle of the Great Recession and I had just finishe
Accelerated Learning Tips
Despite being completely down and out after a failed business venture that was financed by my family, my love of learning was the key to my healing. I was depressed and felt like a complete failure, but I knew that I could learn and overcome. The teaching of Nightingale-Conant became my lifeline.
What I realized was that my teaching in school never taught me HOW to learn which is important. I was never taught to read the summary first and actually read the table of comments so that I could solidify concept
Learning at Super Speed!
Alex’s episode on Accelerated Learning Tips (Ep. 116) is game changing.
In under 30 minutes, I learned principles of how to learn quicker and actually retain what I learn.
His five steps for accelerating learning was very simple and very important. I can see how my bouncing from topic to topic or book to book has been ruining my learning abilities.
I especially related to the evil twins that destroy productivity (I’m guilty of these!)… procrastination and perfectionism.
This episode clarified so much and gave me simple tweaks to how I approach learning in general. It’s a lesson I’ll carry on through life.
Now, on to listen to this episode and read Alex’s notes three more times.
Thank you, Alex!
H2H is EVERYTHING!
Human to human. Not B2B or B2C. So simple and so applicable. My lightbulb moment was, that as consumers become more and more aware of sales and marketing tactics, it's CRITICAL to be a human being. We as content creators have to be authentic, ethical and human. Funnels are great, offers are great, but you have to bring your most authentic sense of self to connect, and sell. Awesome podcast Alex.
Everyone is in sales...of yourself!
I have been in jobseeking on and off for 18 months. I’m also self-employed. I came to this podcast based on Lori Ruff’s 5-Minute Drill for Executive Networking success. My takeaway from this is that actions speak louder than words. I loved the quote from Einstein that if you aren’t learning you are dying. And that we are all winners because we are here! I believe that is a divine decision, and another reason to believe in our purpose. Going on the the see site next to find my verb.
