The truth about sales and success

March 11, 2021 @ 1:30 pm - 2:00 pm

Join us for an introductory workshop about setting your business up for success!

The most important part of all of our businesses is also the most overlooked and undervalued. Sales! If we don’t have potential buyers interested in our offerings or assumptions, everything else in the business will fail. When I say sales, I don’t mean just transacting – I am talking about all of the communications and touch points that intentionally lead your prospect to some desired outcome in a specific time frame. Especially early on, outbound communications by a co-founder are the most valuable communications your company will make. I am looking forward to setting 3 simple sales goals with each of you and logging outbound communications in a very simple google sheet. You know what they say – if you have ten quality conversations per day with potential buyers you can take the rest of the day off. Nothing else matters if you aren’t always filling and progressing your pipeline.

NOTE: Registrants will be sent Zoom coordinates 24 hours before the event.
