Welcome to the Not Another Sales Podcast, hosted by Chris Hatfield, which focuses on more than just the skills required to be successful in life. It looks at all the pillars, which include your behaviours, attitude and habits that form the foundation for success. You'll be provided with actionable tips and insight to build into your life from topics that will give you a whole different perspective.

In the evolution of our working culture and how immersed we can become with work, it's important to be aware of how important it is to be aware and promote wellness in the workplace. But with it being such a big topic and something so current, it's important you look at it through a cultural change perspective, as opposed to a tick box exercise. So what does wellness look like currently and how do businesses, of all sizes, ensure they're enabled to support it as we continue to evolve.
To discuss this very point, I'm joined by Head of Workplace Wellbeing Programmes (Strategy and Development) at Mind, Faye McGuinness.
Faye and I will be talking about why there has been a shift in the focus towards wellness in the workplace and what that has looked like. She'll also share ideas and advice on how smaller businesses can support it and also how leaders can be the driving force behind it. If you see wellness as an integral part to your business, career and overall life, then be sure to tune in!
One of the key signs of a good leader, is someone who can build a strong team around them, wherever they go within their career. Now we often hear examples of how people do this, but not enough is talked about how not to do it also. We all know we can learn as much, if not more, from our mistakes, so what are some of the things to avoid, as well as focus on?
To discuss this, I'm joined by Chief Strategy Officer of NaturesPlus & former SVP eCommerce at Vayner Media, Sabir Semerkant.
Sabir and I will be talking through his experience of building successful teams and the challenges he's faced along the way. He'll be sharing his tips of what to look for in someone, depending on the type and size of business you're looking to build. Be sure to tune in!
You've probably seen mindfulness references in articles, posts and content a lot more recently. The understanding and impact of it, is becoming clearer, but in order for us to truly embrace it, we need organisations to provide the structures and foundations. But how do organisations go about doing this, from the big to the small, to ensure they're creating an environment for mindfulness and the benefits from it?
Well, to talk about this, I'm joined this week by Founder of OutsideIN Performance, Executive Performance Coach and Keynote Speaker, Angie Vaux.
Angie and I will talk through why there has been a shift towards a focus on mindfulness in the workplace and the benefits it can have from doing so. She'll also share advice for companies, big or small, looking to implement it and how we can begin to remove the stigmas attached to it in the work environment.
Social media has changed the way we buy, engage and network with one another. It's also provided a platform for everyone to be seen. One of the best ways to utilise this, is content creation.
But what goes into making great content, that doesn't just make someone think or feel better as a result, but also creates opportunities for your business. How do you create content that sells?
To answer this question, I'm joined on this week's episode by Richard Moore; Business Mentor, Sales Coach and Founder of Entrepreneur Business Live.
Richard and I will be talking through the art of content creation, starting with what you need to consider when creating content. We'll be discussing the types of content that work well and how you can overcome some of your fears then creating it. If you want to get a better understanding and direction on creating content that moves your business forwards, then tune in.

"My biggest podcasting challenge"
First up; the awareness and popularity of podcasts has been rising year on year recently, with many people wanting to jump on the wagon and get involved to create their own. So what are some of the reasons why you should or shouldn't start a podcast?

Social media has given us a great opportunity to be heard and seen more than ever before. LinkedIn, in particular, has evolved. It's not just a space to go when you need a job. It's a space to be able to connect with some incredible people, build relationships and create opportunities for your business.

To answer that, this week's episode of Not Another Sales Podcast features Judi Fox, Video & Content Strategist, Speaker and LinkedIn guru, with over 3 million video and content views in 2018.

We are happy to talk about when we feel tired, physically ill or injured, but refrain from doing so when it's linked to our mental health. Mental health issues don't discriminate and we can sometimes feel we need to suppress them or perhaps not fully acknowledge them. But that isn't the answer; we need to as a collective, particularly men, become more open with talking about it, creating platforms through the use of social media and face to face, to encourage others to feel comfortable in talking about it.
Whilst we can't solve this in one episode of a podcast, we can be part of that collective voice. So on this week's episode of Not Another Sales Podcast, I'm joined by Sales Leader and Mentor, Michael David Chapman.
Michael will be sharing his experience, insights and very raw story of the mental health issues he has faced in his life so far. We'll be talking about ways in which organisations can support this and advice for those who feel they may be in this space. This is linked to Mental Health Awareness week, so I would ask if you find the episode useful, send it onto a friend.
Here's a few links to follow if you'd like to talk to someone about this:

Stress is a phrase that is often thrown around on a daily basis, quite often in a negative context. Some people dread it, others accept it as part of their role and there's those who know it drives them. Stress can be positive or negative and the way you utilise and manage it, comes down to your mindset towards it. Even if you thrive off of stress, it can easily lead to burnout, which can have damaging impacts on your health and life. So how do we utilise and manage stress more effectively.
In this week's episode of Not Another Sales Podcast, I'm joined by Anxiety Specialist and Speaker, Katie Maycock.
Katie and I are talking all about stress; the good, the bad and the ugly (as Katie would say).

There is a lot of discussion about how technology has evolved, not just in how we buy, but how we need to sell.

Every individual has some form of goals or dreams they want to achieve, whether it's a small idea or something that is spurring you on each day.

Having a strong product, value proposition and sales process is of course important to your success when selling. However, all of this good potential can fall down if your mindset towards what and how you sell is coming from a negative and limited space. Whether you're a new business owner who feels you're not a natural sales person or you work in the world of sales and don't feel confident in what you're selling; this episode is for you. We can have a number of limiting beliefs and points of view when selling, which we may not realise are having a negative impact on our outcome. So how we do increase our self-awareness of our mindset when selling and how we can utilise it?
This is what we're discussing this week on Not Another Sales Podcast, with my guest Colleen Francis. Colleen was named in LinkedIn's Top Voices 2018, is an award-winning Sales Strategist and Best Selling Author.
Colleen and I are talking about some of the limiting beliefs that can impact us in the world of sales and the the reasons why some people don't see themselves as natural sellers. We'll also be discussing what's important to focus on when it comes to the mindset and how can you replace limiting selling beliefs, with limitless ones.
Whether you’re starting a new business or developing in your career, one of the fears that can plague us, is that there’s too much competition in a crowded market or business. This leads to us not even trying initially as we feel we can’t compete with those around us. This is one of the situations where having an abundance mindset can help move you beyond this fear, realise there is enough opportunity to go around and that you deserve success, as much as anyone. But how else is an abundance mindset beneficial and how do you develop it?
To answer this on this week’s episode, I’m joined by Chelsea Haines; a Health Coach focusing on functional nutrition, specialising in the abundance mindset.
We’ll be expanding more on what an abundance mindset is, how it can help us in our everyday life and through our business and how you can begin to develop it within you. If you want to come from a place of thrive, rather than survive, then tune in!
We grow up with dreams of being whatever we can imagine, we know no limits when we’re young. Yet fast forward to we’re you’re at now, there’s probably a number of barriers, limiting beliefs and “rules” you’ve adhered to. In life no one’s going to give you permission to break away from these, you need to seek the outcomes you want by empowering yourself. By taking control of your own life, giving yourself permission, you can achieve everything you want. The same goes for when you empower those around you, whether it’s family or a team in your business. So why is empowerment so important to living a fulfilled life and how can you instil it into your life?
This week’s episode of Not Another Sales Podcast is focused all around the important of empowerment and how it can benefit you and others around you.

In the final episode of The Coaching Series, my guests share insights and advice on building coaching into your role and how you're coaching your team effectively.
Coaching is not about imparting all your knowledge onto individuals. It's about getting them to uncover the solutions and path, with you there to support them in doing so. One of the important aspects to be able to do this, is asking the right kind of questions to unearth the answers. In today's episode my guests share some of the types of questions coaches should use, and also avoid, in order to enable individuals to succeed.
One of the key factors to being an effective coach and enabling individuals to succeed through coaching, is building a relationship with them. A relationship where they trust you, believe in what you're encouraging them to do and see it as a positive experience.
In today's episode my guests share some of the key things to focus on and develop to ensure you're able to build strong relationships when coaching people to create the trusting foundations for their success.

In the first episode of The Coaching Series, my guests will share what approach, in terms of mindset, structure and objectives, you should take to ensure you're coaching individuals when required and knowing when to wear different hats for the non-coaching approaches.
When it comes to how we communicate with one another, we are often mindful of what we say and perhaps how we say it. But how much emphasis and intention is put on the body language we emit when communicating and listening to one another. Our body language plays a crucial role in successfully communicating, engaging and understanding situations we find ourselves in. But what should we look for and how do we become mindful and intentional with our body language and how it can impact our mindset?

Our mindset can be our most powerful tool is helping us succeed with what we are focused on. However, when our mindset is not in the place that is serving us, we need to understand ways in which to re-frame it. One of the most effective ways to do this is exercise.

In this busy, ever changing world, we can get caught up in a lot of "doing", very focused on our output and also the success we want within our lives.

What's the one consistent element in any sale that's ever present? It's "change". People buy because they either want to relieve pain or achieve gain, either way they're buying because they want to achieve a change. Your role as the person selling to them is to understand where they're at and where they want to be. But how do you identify this and then how do you position the concept of change, which even customer's know they may need it, can scare them.

Change is a common occurrence in our everyday life, yet as humans we can fear and dread it so much! Whether it's career, diet or hobbies, we tend to focus on the actions and skills that we need to change; not the most important place to start, our mindset.
Considering the advancements around us in technology,our minds are lagging behind and still stuck in a prehistoric state. So why is this the case and how can we begin to make intentional change in our life, through the way that we think?

Our brains are like a Google search engine. Whatever you type in, your brain will look to support or answer it. If you're always saying I can't. Well guess what, your brain will find all the reasons to support this! But if you start asking the question "how can I?" then your brain starts working out ways to create a plan.

The same applies for your everyday life; if you don't start it right, then you'll be facing a battle from the off. In this episode I share a handful of tips to be mindful of at the start of the day. Implementing these will see you start your day with positive intentions and set you up for success.
We all have a variety of thoughts and emotions that can limit us being present or achieving our potential. To overcome these thoughts or "head trash as one of my guest's Jackie Hermes put it, you can use something called Clearing the Space. It will allow you to be present in the moment, identify what is at the heart of your worries and ensure you're performing at your potential. In this episode I share with you 3 steps to action this to help you unclutter your mind.
The world we live in is constantly evolving, with new advancements in technology and society, all impacting how we live our lives. These advancements are helping support us in our growth and success, but before we can truly utilise them, we need to start by looking within ourselves. It's very easy to get caught looking externally for the answers of success, but it all starts with you, the traits you were born with and the ones you can develop to shape a mindset for success.

Have you ever tried to start a new diet plan, take up a hobby or even attempt to change the way you do something in your business? Do you find yourself at the start you're enthused by it, but then over time it seems to drop off and you're back to where you started? Chances are, with new year around the corner, a lot of you have some resolutions in mind. But did you know by February 84% of these new year resolutions have been broken. The aim of all of this is creating new habits within your life, whether they be personal or business, but how do we truly create habits but help us perform and reach our potential? Also why is it that we find it so hard to make these changes stick? To do this we need to go through a journey of true transformation, but where do we start and what does that consist of?

We are so busy these days "doing", that we very rarely take the time to reflect. This type of approach can mean we are constantly chasing our next goal, without actually being grateful for what we currently have. This can lead to an endless chase for things that will never truly make us feel content. To overcome this, gratitude is an essential aspect to understand and regularly practice. Gratitude is our emotion that relates to our ability to feel and express thankfulness and appreciation. But how do we become more mindful of it and utilise it on a daily basis?
On this weeks episode of Not Another Sales Podcast I'm joined by Award winning Author, Host and Speaker Dr Karin Luise.

When scrolling through your social feeds, you'll come across the word "influencer" in someone's summary or a discussion on being an influencer. Influence is essential to your long term success, whether that's in your career or growing a business. Influence can't be demanded, it must be earned. Influence comes down to knowing where you want to go and being able to inspire and motivate others around you to help you push towards that destination. But how do you go about growing your influence to get others around you to buy in to your vision and your solution?

So you've got a clear niche, you're confident in how you present and know you resonate with your audience, but how do you go about actually getting in front of them in a proactive way? As a speaker, you can have all the talent and knowledge in the world, but unless you're looking for opportunities to speak, you will stunt your potential and opportunities. Getting in front of your audience is fundamental to your impact and success as a speaker. Your personal brand plays a part here, but you also need to looking for opportunities, rather than just waiting for them.
In the final episode of the Public Speaking Toolkit week on Not Another Sales Podcast, I'm joined by Personal Branding & Growth Expert Brittany Krystle, CEO & 5x TEDx Speaker Bobby Umar & Marketer & LinkedIn Content Creator Fabio Marrama.

The sign of a great speaker isn't just how they make you feel and think when in front of you, but also what you recall about them following their speech or video. Being memorable is a golden thread throughout all the great speakers of history and present day; how people are able to recall their talks, their messages and how they made them think and feel about topics. Being memorable is vital to speaking, without it you won't see a continued return of your audience online or recurring bookings offline. Being memorable is how you make the real difference as a speaker.
To talk about this I'm joined by Marketer & LinkedIn Content Creator Fabio Marrama, CEO & Speaker Jackie Hermes & CEO & 5x TEDx Speaker Bobby Umar.
If you want to ensure you're making a lasting impression with your audience and always being front of mind when it comes to a speaker they want to listen to, then tune in for this!
We can be an expert in our field, we can communicate our thoughts in a conversation, but then as soon as we get in front of camera or on stage, it all changes. It's not our knowledge that lets us down, it's the thoughts racing through our head of worst case scenarios or what others will think. Stage fright is common, but as a speaker it's vital to overcome to be able to be your best and authentic self.
Today's episode features Professional Speaking Coach & Writer Sarah Jo Crawford, CEO, Brand Strategist & Storyteller Quentin Allums & Speaker, Marketer & LinkedIn Content Creator Fabio Marrama.
If you want to know how you can begin to overcome your stage fright, meaning you'll be more relaxed, authentic and in turn allow the audience to relax and enjoy your content, then tune in!
Before you have an idea of someone wanting to book you as a speaker, they've probably done their homework; watched some YouTube clips, read your blog, seen your LinkedIn profile. So the question is; what does all of this content say about you; is it how you want to be perceived and is it consistent?
This is just an example of the elements that make up your personal brand; how people see you/talk about you when you're not in the room. Without a strong personal brand you'll miss out on opportunities without even knowing they existed and also struggle to build a strong interest in the content you're sharing!
In today's episode I'm joined by Personal Branding & Growth Expert Brittany Krystle, CEO & Speaker Jackie Hermes & Professional Speaking Coach & Writer Sarah Jo Crawford.
If you're looking to build and grow your personal brand to ensure you're creating first impressions that get you noticed, people captivated and more interest in hearing you speak, then tune in!
With the world in which we live in now, it's never been easier to share our opinion and get our voice heard and face seen. Public speaking in no longer just reserved for the well known and famous; anyone with a camera phone can begin to hone their craft.
But with this comes some important questions; how do I stand out from the crowd? build my brand? get more confident with speaking? be more memorable? get more speaking opportunities?
All of these questions are answered on this week's daily podcast editions of Not Another Sales Podcast - The Public Speaking Toolkit. Each day you'll receive some great insights and tips from three different guests ensuring you succeed with your public speaking, both online and on stage.
The first episode is focused on finding your niche!
The challenge that comes with it never being easier to become a speaker in some format, is how busy and crowded some spaces can be. So therefore it's essential you define your difference; both for your own benefit to decide who you want to resonate with and from the audience perspective, why they would want to listen/watch you.
In today's episode I'm joined by CEO & Speaker Jackie Hermes, CEO & 5x TEDx Speaker Bobby Umar & CEO, Brand Strategist & Storyteller Quentin Allums.
If you want some great insights on how you can define your niche, ensuring you are able to stand out from the crowd and be clear on the direction you're heading in, then tune in!
o productivity can be seen by many as something that's very focused towards skills; having lists, planners etc, but I believe it all starts with having a productive mindset - gives you clarity for your strategy
"I'm so busy, I haven't even had time to think today" - sound familiar? You have so many things on a daily basis, both in life and business, that you feel you need to do. You spend all day “doing” things and running around. Then suddenly it’s 5pm and you’re finishing for the day and you think back and feel you've not really got what you wanted done. How did that happen?
I’m guessing you’ve experienced this before, maybe more often than you would like to admit. You feel like you’re “working” all the time but never progressing or completing things. It’s not down to being lazy or not being motivated to achieve your goals. It’s because of your mindset.
Join Entrepreneur, Bestselling Author of "Is Your Business Worth Saving?" & Podcaster Stacy Tuschl and I on this week's episode of Not Another Sales Podcast to talk all about creating a productive mindset.
Stacy and I will talking about what attributes and traits go into cultivating a productive mindset and how it's more than just having a strategy or good organisation. We're also sharing some of the biggest productivity killers that get in the way and how you can become more focused on developing and maintaining a productive mindset. If you're constantly feeling like you're always busy, but not getting the output from your input, then tune in!
Being seen, both in person and on video, is an essential part in growing your brand, both personal and business, in today's busy and crowded marketplace. But there are so many of us that fear the thought of getting up on stage or in front of a camera to do this. When you look at what stops or makes us fearful, all of it starts in the mind. So if you want to become more comfortable and confident at talking out loud in front of people, you need to start with the inner voice.
In this week's episode I'm joined by CEO, Speaker and a growing influencer in the world of LinkedIn Jackie Hermes.
Jackie and I will be talking about why it's essential to focus on your mindset and behaviours towards public speaking before the practicality and skills of doing it. We'll also share our thoughts on what some of the greatest speaker's in the world possess and how you can become more confident and comfortable with public speaking, whether that be to 1 or 100 people or on camera. Jackie will also be sharing her story so far, including what she's learnt most about herself along the way.
How do I attract new customers? This is a common question you see asked and answered on daily basis. There's always some new ways of doing this, with the power of technology and social supporting this. But how often do you ask this question within your business; how do I work out who I shouldn't work with? You see when you are only looking at how to attract new customers, and not enough time focused on spotting those you shouldn't work with, you will face challenges further down the road.
In this week's episode I'm joined by CEO and award winning social media marketer Rachel Pedersen.
We'll be talking about firstly why you should look to avoid trying to work with everyone, the pitfalls of doing so and how you can become more equipped to identify the types of customers you should avoid working with. Be sure to tune in, to be equipped with ways to spot the wrong type of customers and how it will benefit you in the long run!
A hot topic of debate is always what habits, behaviours and skills contribute towards making people successful. One of these elements that sets the successful apart is rooted within human psychology. It centres around 3 A's; Acceptance, Attention & Approval and how high value human beings are able to give this versus beg or compete for it.
I'm joined by John Sanei, best-selling author, global speaker and trend specialist with a holistic approach to achieving future-readiness.
John shares his definition of what it means to be a higher value human being, how it's essential to our success and why we're not all able to make the instant choice to become one. John will also be sharing his story, coming back from bankruptcy, what inspires him and his purpose.
So if you want to take a deeper look and understanding into how you can work towards becoming a higher value human being and what it can bring to you in terms of success and enlightenment, then tune in.
"A boss has the title. A leader has the people" Simon Sinek. Leadership is something that is still very misunderstood, particularly what actually goes into making someone a great leader.

This is for anyone, whether you're in a leadership position or not, who feels they want to inspire and empower individuals around them.
You may scroll your social media feed each day and see numerous posts designed to motivate and inspire you. You probably see the #motivation on a daily basis, but what does it really mean to be motivated? Mel Robbins says motivation is never there when you need it and this is down to the lack of understanding of what motivation is. There are myths of motivation that need clarity to ensure motivation is seen and used in the right way.
In this episode I'm joined by Success Coach and Writer Lisa Jeffs.
Lisa and I are going to be delving into the meaning of motivation; why people struggle with a lack of it at times, the myths surrounding motivation and how you can become more effective at understanding motivation and how to use it.

We are creatures of habit. We feel safe when we know what is going to occur is our daily life. When this feeling of security and the known is challenged by the perceived uncertainty and the unknown, we become uneasy and unsure of how we should react. Having the fear of change can have some strong negative impacts on our life, stopping us from exploring what we're capable of.

Inspiration can occur at any point. We can be watching a YouTube video, talking to friends or have a eureka moment in the shower. This inspiration can lead us to starting something, whether that's a diet or launching a business. Great we've started, but how many times do you start something only to fall back into an old habit. Did you know 80% of new year's resolutions are broken by February! Our lack of consistency can make it hard for us to stay the course and can therefore sometimes lead us back to square one.
In this episode I'm joined by Sales & Leadership Coach Dee Mullin, Success Coach & Writer Lisa Jeffs and Sales and Career Strategist Christine Sarno.
They'll be sharing some great insights and ways of dealing with this fear of being consistent, how you can ensure you maintain what you have started,therefore creating the habits to support this.

Do you have something you keep putting off? Something you think you need more time to research or know more about? Is this a common habit that you find occurs regularly. This habit of overthinking is common within many of us as our brains are wired to protect us from perceived danger and to survive. Therefore we can become trapped in our thoughts of all the reasons why we shouldn't do something, which can mean we miss out on opportunities and fulfilling our potential.
Today's episode focuses on this very fear of overthinking and I'm joined by Change Specialist & Head Coach at imachangemaker.com Andrew Tilling, Success Coach and Writer Lisa Jeffs and Sales and Career Strategist Christine Sarno.
This episode will provide you some actionable insights into dealing with the process of overthinking and how you can prevent yourself from getting caught in the trap of it. If you're constantly overthinking every scenario, putting things off, thinking what could go wrong, then tune in!
The fear of failing is a common reason as to why we never start something, whether it be a passion or a business. We're naturally fearful of the unknown, with our mind creating all the possibilities of what could go wrong and also the fear of how we'll feel at the end of this. It can be crippling this fear and it can also be damaging when we do have perceived failures occur in our life.
In the second instalment of Face Your Fears week, I'm joined NLP Practitioner and Coach Sarah Gregg, Change Specialist & Head Coach at imachangemaker.com Andrew Tilling and Founder of Mindful Talent and Executive Coach Alister Gray.
My guests on the episode will be sharing their perception of why we sometimes have this innate fear of failure, where it stems from and most importantly how you can overcome this. If you are constantly worried about the end result or your perception towards failure being of a negative one, then tune in.
On a daily basis we directly and indirectly engage with people whose opinions may influence how we go about living our life. These opinions can be at times valuable, however we can also get into a state where we are constantly fearing what other people think and therefore not being able to be our true selves. We can go about life sometimes with a facade to as a result of this which provides no fulfilment and growth.
In the episode today I'm joined by Sales and Leadership Coach Dee Mullin, Founder of Mindful Talent and Executive Coach Alister Gray and NLP Practitioner and Coach Sarah Gregg.
They'll be providing you with some great insights into becoming more effective at dealing with other people's opinions and how you can become more mindful of how and who you spend your time with, to be able to get over this fear. If you feel like you're constantly worried about others opinions of you and your actions, then tune in!
We are educated about numerous things throughout life, but at no point are we really taught about how to truly understand or manage our emotions, if anything only on how to hide them. Emotions are actually neutral, they are neither positive or negative, it's our perception of them that pigeon holes them into either of these. All of our emotions are designed to support and aid us in some way, but to be able to utilise that we must rewire our thinking around them.
This week I'm joined again by Sales and Leadership Coach Dee Mullin.
Dee and I will be discussing in further detail why we have a misunderstanding of our emotions, some examples of where this very fact can impact us in a negative way and how we can begin to rewire our thinking around our emotions to ensure they serve us in a positive way. If you want to get some great insight and understanding of your emotional intelligence and how you can manage and understand it more effectively, then tune in!
As people we want to feel appreciated, enabled and valued by others. We expect nothing different in our career, but we have all experienced at some point, leaders who seem to miss the mark on this. There are a number of attributes that make great leaders, but one of the key ones is a leader knowing he doesn't always have to be the smartest person in the room. You see when leaders encourage others to shine, play to their strengths by letting others around them utilise their own, they lay the foundations for success to be built on.
In this episode I'm joined by CEO, Keynote Speaker and 5x TedX speaker, Bobby Umar.
Bobby and I are going to be discussing why it's essential leaders realise they don't always need to be the smartest person in the room, the impacts it can have on them and those around by ignoring this, along with how you, as a leader, can become more aligned to this. For anyone in a leadership role or looking to move into one, this episode is not to be missed!

Change doesn't happen in an instance, it's a process over a period of time. But that process isn't always going to be easy. There's going to be times when you feel like quitting or that you've taken a step backwards. Patience is integral to change in the long term, but so is consistency, in the short term. It will take time, but you need to be consistent over that time, whilst having the patience to remind yourself it won't be instant.

Henry Ford once said "whether you believe you can or you can't, you're always right". Belief is the integral foundation we need to be successful in whatever we do. However, if these beliefs aren't positive or constructive ones, they can sometimes limit our potential if they're not questioned by us or fully understood. Limiting beliefs need to be challenged and turned into limitless beliefs, for us to be able to succeed.

To be successful, you need a strategy, but the key foundation to establish first, are the goals you want to achieve. You can't train for a race that you don't know the distance of, in the same way you can't succeed without knowing what you want to achieve. To do this you need to be clear about setting goals, which in itself is an art. I'm joined by Christine Joy Luck Sarno, Sales and Career Coach, award winning sales and advertising powerhouse with 20 plus years of leadership experience. We're discussing everything related to the art of goal setting; why we should set them, the impact of not having clear goals and why we find it hard to stick to them. We'll also share some practical tips on how you can become more clear on how you set, stick and act on your goals. Christine will also be sharing her motivations and the pillars of her success. So if you're thinking you need to become clearer on your goals, how you ensure you set meaningful ones and want to push yourself, then tune in.
Stories are something that we can so easily remember, whether it be our favourite film or book, but how often do we use them in our role. The most effective way for us to retain information is through stories and can be a influential way to engage with and sell to people.

So if you feel like you'd like to understand more about how to utilise stories to sell effectively or to ensure your audience retains your information, then tune in.
