    Transforming Self-Sabotage into Self-Made Success

    Transforming Self-Sabotage into Self-Made Success

    Ever feel like you're your own worst enemy? Like you’re driving with one foot on the gas and the other on the brake? 
     
    This is a far too common experience for humans and I sat down with Tracy Pleschourt, the mastermind behind transformative life coaching school “Self Made You” to explore why. 
     
    And more importantly - how to break that cycle! 
     
    She dives deep into her SELF framework that has changed dozens, if not hundreds, of lives. It starts by defining what we want, eliminating fear-based thoughts, leveraging our strengths, and making continuous progress. 
     
    We even use a pickle of a situation I found myself in to walk through the framework live. 
     
    Remember, personal growth is like riding a carousel—no finish line, just continuous, small steps forward.
     
    Tune in to discover:
    How to recognize and address fear-based narratives that impact your decisions and create results you don’t want.
    The power of empathy for yourself and others in making better choices that create the result you want.
    Practical advice on using the SELF framework to overcome self-sabotage and leverage your strengths to create the reality you want.
    Why continuous learning and intentional decision-making are key to a fulfilling life.
     
    Ready to break free from self-sabotage and create your own success story? This episode is for you. 
     
    If you want to experience the relief from using the SELF framework for a tough situation you’re in, join Tracy on her free coaching Fridays which you can find at self-madeu.com.

    Increasing Your Sales With Pre-Call Education

    Increasing Your Sales With Pre-Call Education

    If you’re hearing things like “this is a lot to process”, “thank you for this valuable information”, “let me get back to you” - it’s a sign that you are over educating on your sales calls. 
     
    Educating and selling at the same time is a sure-fire recipe for confusion. 
     
    Pre-education for your prospect to watch or read before you talk will immediately increase your sales with less effort required from you. 
     
    In this episode, we’re uncovering the magic of pre-educating your prospects and how to do it in your own sales process.  
     
    It’s all about setting the stage so your sales conversations are focused, productive, and a whole lot shorter.
     
    Tune in to discover:
    The real reason that educating in your sales conversation will kill your sales - it’s not that they’re going to go do everything themselves!
    How to get into your prospect’s head (in a good way) and skip the jargon and in the weeds overwhelm. 
    The natural human tendency towards skepticism and how to turn it around.
    Different pre-education options to choose from like sending videos and guides to showcase your unique flair.
    Powerfully filtering out people who are not a fit while simultaneously making the right people more likely to say yes to working with you - faster. 
     
    Interested in seeing how this would work specific to your offer?

    How Sales And Dating Are The Same

    How Sales And Dating Are The Same

    What do sales & dating have in common? Well, everything as you’ll see in this episode. 
    If you’re trying to marry anyone who will have you - people can feel that just like prospects can smell your commission breath. 
    Rita Goodroe, an expert on making more money with less effort, shares her experience into understanding why she found herself heartbroken in a life she didn’t love as a lawyer.  
    It involves going on 35 first dates in 35 days with random strangers and ends with her married and a highly sought-after keynote speaker. 
    Here’s a sneak peek of what you’ll discover when you listen: 
    All attempts to be appealing make you immediately unappealing - and what to do to actually attract prospects (and dates)
    The signs your actions are coming from a place of fear - and how to shift out of that place to experience success
    Winning more with a focus on curiosity instead of the end result 
    The magic of silence and pausing in a conversation instead of filling it with nonsense
    If what Rita had to say resonated with you, I highly recommend checking out her powerful programs that support you in understanding yourself better and methods that will achieve more success at www.ritagoodroe.com

    Avoid Scope Creep & Increase Client Retention

    Avoid Scope Creep & Increase Client Retention

    Want to know the fastest and most unexpected way to increase your revenue and client retention? Clear boundaries.
     
    People pleasers often think someone will like them more if they do more, never say no and go above and beyond. 
     
    However, if you don’t let someone know what you’re doing is above and beyond then it simply becomes what’s expected and you quickly become burnt out. 
     
    Then you can’t keep up that level of performance and the client leaves because quality declines (when in reality they just had mind-blowing quality before and had no idea). 
     
    Listen in to discover how to:
    👉Effectively set boundaries from the start that lays the groundwork for a successful relationship that you retain long-term before it even starts 
    👉 Communicate crucial elements when you’re setting boundaries that give clients the context to be consistently impressed with your work
    👉Kindly establish a boundary that paves the way to upsells and retention when a client asks for something out of scope 
    👉 Avoiding common traps people pleasers fall into that suck up time and money in the  name of “potential” 
     
    Don't make a deal based on potential. Make a deal based on what is in front of your face, the situation that you're in now. - Aleasha Bahr

She’ll launch you so fast!

Aleasha is not only brilliant but she’s also incredibly tuned in to how to actually talk to people so that you can serve them best. Listen with intention and I guarantee she will deliver you a nugget of genius that will take your impact and service to higher levels, fast. Aleasha is having conversations that people typically avoid, or try to have with themselves, alone, in the dark. It’s OK to talk about sales and business and what gets in the way of service and that’s exactly what she does with this podcast.

Love Alesha’s Thinking…

Absolutely, we're all in the business of selling, whether we realize it or not. Nothing is truly self-selling; it all requires a touch of creativity and strategy. This episode really drives home that point and underscores the universal truth of sales. Kudos for the bold insights shared in the "Sales is not a dirty word" podcast – they're enlightening and appreciated!

Aleasha Bahr/SNDW delivers everything I look for and love in a podcast!

Aleasha Bahr delivers everything I look for and love in a podcast host: Smart, funny original thinker who offers me actionable information that makes my life better. I wish Aleasha, her podcast and her Black Sheep Sales Method had been around 20 years ago when I was starting my business. I had a steep learning curve without her. Listen and take advantage of what she is offering. Aleasha is a great interviewer who asks insightful questions and actively listens to her guests. It’s clear she’s done her research. Oh - and she gives context and connects dots which I appreciate a lot. Again, an example of how much Aleasha is listening and always thinking, “what’s the value here.” HIGHLY, HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
