    Sales, mindset, and the changing conversation on customer care - with Heather Petherick

    Sales, mindset, and the changing conversation on customer care - with Heather Petherick

    So let me share a little about the importance of connection and have every conversation is an opportunity.
    Last week, I shared my conversation with my friend Jen Grosso from the Boldfire Institute that was part of a live chat for her awesome business group. Well… as fate would have it, in the audience of that group was a fiery character who was dropping hilarious, encouraging one-liners into the chat, cheering Jen and I on and asking thoughtful questions as the chat continued. 
    That fiery awesome character was the one and only Heather Petherick who I’m delighted to say is my guest today. 

    Heather Petherick is a master business coach, with 14 years worth of experience helping clients grow their service-based business and consistently sell out their high-ticket offers without being salesy, rude or annoying AF – and she and I connected right away after that guest interview; we were totally on the same wavelength when it comes to integrity in marketing and sales, using a low-intimidation approach, high-connection approach, and having a duty of care in your business. 
    Also, there’s the fact that she is totally hilarious. 
    And today, we talk about….
    The evolution that Heather has seen in her 14+ years in coachingHow your customer is far more discerning now – and why that’s a really good thingWhy ‘bro marketing’ and shaming prospects won’t cut it anymore The welcome conversation around ethics is getting louder in the coaching industryWhy relationship-based, organic marketing means reaping more benefits with less hustleThe sales superpower that women often have – but don’t always recognizeThe real goal of a sales conversation – and no, it’s not getting someone’s moneyHeather’s bio

    My friend, Jen Grosso, is a certified business growth strategist and mindset coach who has a wonderful Facebook group called Mind, Body and Business breakthroughs for entrepreneurs and executives – and she asked me to be a guest expert for her interview series on entrepreneurship.  And she is so awesome that I didn’t have to think twice about it.

    Post-Summit reflections... and a rant!

    This weekend, I was a guest speaker at the Side Hustle to Self-Employed Summit hosted by my friend, Shannon Mattern, and it was such an incredible experience.

    The replays for the summit go away to day, but you can still snag lifetime access for another few days along with the power pack which is a TREASURE TROVE of additional trainings with side hustlers in mind.
