Even Dating Coaches Need Sales Reps – Klara Adalena | CS020
“I don’t even know if I want to have a team…” “Employees don’t work. They just want money, they don’t work...” Many entrepreneurs have negative beliefs about building a team to grow their business. And, like a self-fulfilling prophecy, they come true. You attract what you believe. In this interview, I’m joined by Klara Adalena. She’s a dating coach for female CEOs and one of our clients. Recently, her sales team did $25k in 5 days. She’s on track to hit a 7-figure run rate. Another success story. Klara and I talked about her resistance to building a team, how she overcame her limiting beliefs, and how she leads her enrollment coaches. So that she doesn’t have to take any sales calls and can focus on strategy and scaling her business. You'll Discover How to position your B2C coaching offer to maximize your earning potential [02:30] The one organizational activity we insist all our clients do – they resist it at first until they start seeing massive growth [07:00] Why you need to sell the process, not the person – the key to scaling your sales [15:05] Why Klara doesn’t listen to her enrollment coaches’ sales calls anymore – and how it makes her feel [20:45] “I don’t even know if I want to have a team”... “employees don’t work, they just want money…” – Klara’s limiting beliefs about building a team and how she overcame them [30:30] ...And much more!

How Ravi Abuvala Discovered The True Meaning Of Impact | CS019
I love this interview with my friend and client Ravi Abuvala. I brought him on to talk about scaling agencies, but we went super-deep on "advanced" CEO-level topics. Ravi is the founder of Scaling With Systems, as well as a couple of other businesses. He helps entrepreneurs grow their businesses through his "Eliminate, Delegate, Automate" framework. We talked a lot about what it really means to make an impact as a business owner. About how to create and curate a culture in your company. And the milestones you must hit on the path to scaling your business to 7 figures. You'll Discover How Ravi's agency went from servicing 200-250 clients to only servicing 12-12 clients and making A LOT more money [01:42] Impact is one of those corny words entrepreneurs love to use, so what does Ravi mean when he says "impact?" [05:37] How Ravi built a culture of loyal employees who all eat, sleep, and breathe growing their company... and the one book he read that helped him do it [20:23] What happened when Ravi Abuvala tried to hire his own sales reps – instead of working with CoachingSales. com 😈 [24:47] The transformational epiphanies Ravi experienced while growing his business from $30k-$50k/month to $400k-$450k/month in a year [32:30] ...And much more!

Joel Kaplan's 1-Hour Work Week And $250K/Month Social Media Agency | CS017
Everybody's talking about the 4-hour workweek. But I'll bet you haven't heard of the 1-hour workweek. Sounds unbelievable, but it's true. My client Joel Kaplan managed to build a social media marketing agency that's completely automated and hands-off. To the point where he only has to check in about an hour a week. The best part? His agency manages about 200 active clients and does $250,000/month in revenue. Now, THAT'S what I call being a CEO. If you run an agency or any kind of client-based business, this interview is a must-watch!

On Pimps And Persuasion | CS008
We're exploring the dark side of persuasion. Skip this if you're easily offended. There's a fascinating TEDx talk by Tim Larkin, a former military intelligence officer, called the Paradox of Violence. His thesis is that in order to protect yourself, you need to understand violence. And to understand violence, you need to study criminals. Studying pimps and pimping is essentially the same concept. Like violence, persuasion is just a tool. It can be used for good or evil. And to know the full extent of persuasion can do, you must study those who use the tool in ways you may think are immoral, unethical, or even criminal. Think of today's podcast as Pimpology 101, where I introduce you to what pimps call "the Ism." You'll Discover The principle of magic in sales Why pimps dress and talk the way they do The true power of persuasive speech How pimps turn the tables of thousands of years of human behavior And more!

How To Use Metaphors On Sales Calls | CS007
You’ll hear this often on sales calls: “It sounds great, I just need to do a little research.” “Do you have some testimonials I can check out?” “Can I have some time to think on it?

Maybe they believe your product works, but they don’t yet believe it’ll work for them.  In today’s podcast, we’ll be going over how to build the beliefs in your prospect that get them to buy.

Ethics Of Persuasion | CS001
Over in our Facebook Group, we get a lot of questions in some variant of: "How do I ethically sell?" "When do I know to sell hard?" "How do I avoid being unethical with my persuasion?"

They’re trying to understand the fine line between using their powers of persuasion for good and using them for evil. This is something we teach a lot of beginner sales reps we work with.
