Episode 9 | Selling U As a Leader First
Up to this point, I've only interviewed women and today we have my friend and client, Pierre. Pierre Quinn is not only an incredible speaker and incredible mentor, but he has focused his business on leading. And I wanted him here today because he has quite a fascinating story from a gentleman who started life as a pastor and then transitioned to a professional speaker and leadership mentor. He kind of went through the wringer as far as how to present himself to the world. He had to understand who he was and how to come to terms with the fact that he wanted to make money in this world. He talks to us a lot about the challenges that you can face when you move from ministry in a church to ministry in business. Enjoy Pierre! https://pierrecquinn.com/

Episode 8 | Selling U Through Customer Experience
Today on the Selling U Podcast, we have Ms. Monique Brown, who is here to talk about all things customer service. She's not only an expert in the field, but she is a coach that helps entrepreneurs like yourself, improve their customer service journey. I think before having her on that I thought customer service was just something that happened after the sale but that is not the case. Customer service is not only what helps you get and bring people in the door, but it also helps you close those sales. It helps keep people happy and it helps them come back again. So I want you to start thinking of customer service as an overlay over your entire business. Monique is not only going to be able to tell you a lot of good information about that, but she has real applicable things that you can start putting into your business now to improve that process.  Enjoy!  About Monique: Monique Brown is a Customer Experience Strategist Coach and the Owner of Believing & Achieving Customer Service Consulting based in Atlanta, Georgia. Monique is a dedicated customer service professional trainer with over 20 years of experience teaching elite customer service/experience for one of the largest insurance companies in the U.S. She studied Communications and Marketing at Ursuline College which lead to her expertise and passion in teaching entrepreneurs and small business owners how to think outside the box and use elite customer service as a leverage to grow their business like the large companies have implemented already and succeeded with. She has perfected a "retention" strategy that will enable small businesses to build sustainable relationships with their customers which will lead to revenue growth, good reviews, and happy loyal customers. Monique teaches the philosophy "treat people the way that you want to be treated" to ensure that customers will have a positive, memorable, elite customer experience. https://www.facebook.com/moniquebrowncoach https://www.sarahmaedickinson.com/

Episode 6 | Selling U Uniquely with Cillia Marion
We want you to be able to be empowered and excited and know what you are doing because sales are what will change your business. Today on the podcast, I have a good friend and client Ms. Cillia Marion, who owns Marion Matrimony Events in Texas. She is amazing and has really crafted a business on being unique. She focuses on loving brides who are unique and different, and really showcasing their personality and style. We all know that a wedding day can be very, very expensive, and the choices you are making are most likely some of the most expensive purchases you've made in your whole life. There's absolutely no reason to feel like an ordinary person on that day. And I think Cillia really shows us how to make our clients feel comfortable, feel special, and feel unique, because they are. They deserve to have that feeling, particularly when the product or service that they are buying is not cheap. Listen to the way Cillia talks about her clients. Listen to the way that she talks about how she positions herself, because she has an incredibly unique perspective on what it's like to sell.

Episode 5 | Selling U Before They Even Meet You with Jessica Baker
I wanted to bring on a friend of mine today so that you guys could learn a little bit more about what it's like to create the correct impression to make the sale. We met when we were freshmen in high school, in the little town outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania that we grew up in.  Jess is just a power. She is one of the top-producing real estate agents in the Pittsburgh area and has been in real estate for quite a long time. She's going to tell her story, but she is incredible. She's a mom, she's basically a designer because they just renovated their beautiful, beautiful home in Pittsburgh that there are photos of, but most importantly, she has become an Instagram Queen. I tell you, I've been watching her over the last year grow her audience and really create a great presence online. A lot of us really, really struggle with that understanding our brand on social media. So I asked her where she learned how to craft her brand through her Instagram so that people know who she is before she even walks in the door.  So many of you tell me that you're nervous in person, right, because you don't know how to sell yourself or you don't know what to say. Quite frankly, if done correctly, you can sell yourself before you even get there because you've become a trusted expert. They know your background. They know you know what to do. They know your services, they know your products, they know your pricing because you've shown it all to them on social media. Jess is an incredibly wonderful example of that. She's kind, she's smart. She's funny. She's someone that you're going to fall in love with, so please, please, please enjoy Ms. Jessica Baker.
