The timing of this podcast episode is PERFECT - as we’re in a series of training about Booking More Discovery Calls.
The FIRST piece of advice I give new entrepreneurs is to make sure that there is time on their calendar EVERY day for sales activities. Revenue Generating Activities. Income Producing Activities.
In this podcast, I am breaking down what that even means - and how to fit it into your already super busy schedule!
I often run into women who are paralyzed in their business because they aren’t sure WHO they want to work with. They’re waiting for the perfect ideal client description before they start taking action.
While I am a believer that “if you talk to everyone, you talk to no-one” - I propose a different solution to this problem - FOCUS ON SOLVING PROBLEMS - and the rest will fall into place.
There is still time to register for the Book More Discovery Calls Challenge:
I polled the Sales Skills for Women in Business Community and they said their BIGGEST challenge in their business was booking sales calls!
It’s always my goal to SERVE the heck out of you guys - so we are doing a Discovery Call Challenge. Listen in to hear the details - including what you will learn day by day - and why booking more discovery calls is the key to success in your business as a brand new entrepreneur.
Like a lot of entrepreneurs, Alyssa started her business out of necessity and a desire to spend more time with her kids. What started as a good idea and a small accounting business got big fast - and Alyssa was soon answering questions about “how did you grow your business” more than she was getting asked about accounting and bookkeeping!
In this week’s podcast, Alyssa shares how showing up and giving massive value turned her 6-figure accounting business to a multi 6-figure coaching business FAST!
Alyssa is becoming famously known as an online business coach & profit strategist for helping more and more digital entrepreneurs launch and scale their businesses online.
She's a multiple-6 figure business founder who, most recently, created a proven program and system which allows the virtual business owner to not only create their own unique business model, but to launch it successfully to 6 figures annually, without leaving the comfort of their laptop.
Alyssa got her start in the corporate world as a CFO of a company based in Western New York. After having Irish twin boys (that's 2 babies less than a year apart!) who required her attention and whom she craved more time with, she realized her corporate passions weren't being met properly and she was ready and willing to be a professional on her own terms, and from the comfort of her home.
She knew her craft, WELL, and she took off running, in her first month as a first-time entrepreneur, earning ($20k/month) in just 4 months into business.
She was incredibly successful and decided there was so much more she could do to help similar-minded people, so she launched her second business as an online coach and once again, scaled her business to 6 figures in less than 5 months, as is now a multi-6 figure earner.
And now, she's helping people all over the WORLD, do the same.
Krista started The S.A.S.S.Y. Method, (Seriously Authentic, Smart, Self-Confident You) because she wanted to help busy business people who struggle to do it all, often with many people relying on them, who are at high risk for burnout yet very rarely ask for help and are victims of fear, guilt, and the never-enough syndrome. Her mission is to assist people to discover who they were meant to be and step fully into their destiny while using their superpowers to make money in their niche and design the lifestyle they want. She is on a mission to create a global movement with the upcoming release of her book followed by the launch of her group program next year. You can reach Krista at the following channels:

Sales + Marketing ARE NOT the same thing.
I’ve always been confused by that job title in the corporate world: Sales + Marketing Director
While both 100% necessary - they aren’t the same thing.
I was once a guest on a podcast, and the host referred to sales and marketing as roommates. They live in the same house - but don’t share a bed. They’re not married.
Your business needs both a sales strategy AND a marketing strategy.
Because all of the leads in the world are pretty useless, if you have no plan to connect, nurture, and convert your leads into clients.
Today’s podcast I break down the biggest differences between sales and marketing - and where you should start when you’re brand new to business building!
I did something a little crazy.
It’s been a what feels like a long, crazy journey to get to this place.
I am SO excited to share my story with you in this week’s podcast.
I LEFT MY CORPORATE JOB (but am still blessed enough to get to work with them in a different capacity!)
Sarah spent years feeling like she had lost part of herself in motherhood. She LOVED her family but she had this nagging desire to pursue something more.

She currently is married to her middle school sweetheart, homeschools her three children and LOVES French press coffee.
But coaching other women to discover their own unique gifts and talents was the first business that truly brought me joy.

If you were there live, LISTEN AGAIN. This is important stuff.
In line with our new series inside the Sales Skills for Women in Business Facebook Group - this week’s podcast is breaking down the BIGGEST myth OF ALL about building a service based business.

In this episode, Ryann chat with Megan O'Neill about how much MINDSET impacts your business, and specifically your ability to sell. In this candid chat, they discuss money blocks, fear of what other people think, and how to master these things to have the business, and the life, of your dreams.

Her work specializes in the area of business mindset and imposter syndrome—helping clients get clear, to feel powerful to take action and to make money doing what they love.
Megan’s CBE journey began after realizing she logically and cognitively knew what her blocks were, but was stuck and couldn’t make the changes she really needed. Fortunately, the universe intervened—she received a pamphlet in the mail about a workshop on a method called Core Belief Engineering (CBE). After experiencing amazing results with CBE, Megan realized this is what she was meant to do and spent the next few years training in this mindset technique. She hasn’t looked back since and has enjoyed many wonderful years assisting her clients to create freedom for themselves by transforming themselves into who they really are.
