Here are some super simple truths, critical DO’s and DON’Ts in order to catapult your results to the next level.
1. You can’t fake REAL.
Please don’t put on a personality. People are super perceptive– even more than they know. So while they won’t know why they aren’t moved to buy from you– a lack of sincerity will bungle sales.
2. You can’t sell what you don’t buy.
If you have a mindset challenge around sales and offering your services, you will find it hard to close business comfortably.
Or if you try to sell coaching or consulting but you won’t invest in it yourself…. ruh roh! My friend you’re in trouble. Be sure you’re in alignment in order to profit big.
Fom the stage at The Rise, it was easy to see Million-Dollar Leaders & Rock Star clients alike….like Adam and Bo Urbanski, Scott Robley & Infusionsoft, Rob Schultz, and Elizabeth Anderson…all sitting up, actively listening, taking notes, hitting the mic.
The cream rises to the top in EVERY situation.
Know this, energetically its hard to ask people to pay attention to you and be respectful, if you’re not willing to give that courtesy to others.
4. The close REALLY starts in your open
One of the top mistakes that happens when people go to close the room, is that its complete shift in energy that happens all of of a sudden at the end of their talk.
Its jarring for the audience and its uncomfortable.
HOT TIP ON CLOSING: get interaction at the beginning of your talk so that when you ask people to take action at the end…. its something that’s been happening all along.
5. Keep on teaching through your close
When you make your offer, keep your pace, tone, and energy the same as its been throughout your talk or workshop. And remember that you are still teaching, still inspiring, and still serving.
Remember you’re not selling swamp land in Florida! You’re encouraging people to change their lives, or have a better financial future, or great health– you’re giving them the amazing OPPORTUNITY to step into something they have always wanted.
That kind of energy, inspiration, and spirit of service will close a room.
6. Don’t get weird.
You can be weird like have purple in your hair and tell goofy stories about what happened when you walked into a WHITE OUT of a steam room and almost blindly walked right into a stranger’s lap.
but don’t GET WEIRD about making your offer.
Because if you’re uncomfortable, we’re uncomfortable.
So while feeling nervous is normal, you do want to be sure you KNOW that making your offer is a way of helping people.
You’re giving people a unique opportunity to change… and that is a gift!
Want to power up your results with speaking & making offers?
That’s just one topic we’re covering in this brand new training series based on The Rise Live Event.
Here’s The Deal:
Your first product doesn’t have to be a big production in order to be a long-term money-making success. Often times, the more you complicate it, the longer it takes to get to market. So ask yourself what is the best version I can create that WILL get done.
I waited longer than I needed to, to create my own signature training series. And you will likely want to do the same too!. So please don’t wait to launch your first (or next) product or you’re missing a big lead-generator & profit center for your business.
I want you to create an achievable success, and profitable one too! (even if the first numbers aren’t huge at first) If you want to lead a workshop in person, you can host it in your house, or in a conference room in an office space. If you want to lead online classes, do it in the way that works for you. Use a platform you like & will use. I started with Instant Teleseminar. Zoom is also good when you’re just starting out.
The point is that you don’t want to keep everything simple enough that you can keep moving forward. And you don’t need to throw a bunch of money at this project either. Hop on your computer. Hit record. Teach for an hour. There’s module one! 🙂
Once you’ve created your core, entry-level, signature product, learn how to leverage it into multiple six figures for your business… DON’T toss it to the side and create a new one. (many people do this and it’s a mistake) Maximize the one program you’ve already got. I recommend my clients work with me for a least a year, before trying to add a new (entry level) product or program into their offers.
It’s a lot easier to point your marketing efforts towards one entry place, and you’ll find your results will show it!
You’re likely sensing a theme here. 😉 I’m a big fan of keeping things as simple and streamlined as possible. We want to build one program, and one talk that moves people up into that program!
Delivering my talk online and off has always been my #1 strategy for business building (while making a difference) and it can be for you too!

So many events throughout the year. Should you attend? Which ones and why? Here’s the breakdown.
Last year, I was a speaker and sponsor at Suzanne Evans’ BE THE CHANGE.
The exposure I got from speaking at that event (and the strategy I implemented around it) helped me generate over $55,000 just in the 30 days that followed.
BE THE CHANGE was THE EVENT that catapulted my business from $10,000 months to $30,000 months and here are a few tips to help you do the same:
#1: SPONSOR &/or SPEAK:
If you want to get on that big stage, sometimes its free, sometimes you get paid, and sometimes you’ve got to pay to play! In this case this opportunity paid for itself and then some!
(That being said, I had a friend who didn’t speak and generated $15,000 creating new clients over meals.)
#2: COME PREPARED WITH A SPECIFIC STRATEGY:
So many people leave big events like this empty handed, but it doesn’t have to be that way! If you want to attend Be the Change or speak at it, and PROFIT from your trip, play with the numbers! How many clients & partners would make it worth it to you?
Purty durn good deal! So click through and click around the site, and you learn all about the event!
Now I don’t spend my year on the road like some experts and speakers do, because I have a family, and I like to see them! But choosing a few great events to attend is a good idea. Visibility is worth something to you, its a way to stay top of mind, to stand out, and its important to remember….
IF YOU DON’T WANT TO SHOW UP & BE VISIBLE…
DON’T WORRY ABOUT IT. SOMEONE ELSE WILL!
#4: THE RIGHT PARTNERS CAN CHANGE YOUR BUSINESS
Attending a few big events each year, will put you elbow to elbow with some of the biggest players in the game. Last year, I was having a blast connecting with rock stars like Angella Johnson, Monica Shah, Mara Glazer, Max Simon, and more!
No one gets big by staying sheltered. Its all about connecting, supporting one another, and working together to grow your business. Rock stars stick together and grow faster together! Woot woot!

It’s a 2-day transformational women’s conference that has already created big-time change for thousands of women. It’s the place where REAL people with REAL tools and solutions create personal transformation and THAT is how we create global change.

If you’re like many small business owners you might be feeling overwhelmed or confused by how to use social media to market your business.
If you know me at all you know I love Facebook! I use my business page to connect with clients, give free tips and advice, have conversations, share resources. (you’ll find any easy FB link on the RIGHT SIDE of this page so you connect with me easily.)
I JUST changed my business page recently, so I am sure Matt can shine some light on what I can do to help more people connect with me there- so that they can get the tips and training I offer on FB, and so that i can get more feedback on my Facebook Page from YOU about what matters to you and your business right now!
So how can you use Facebook to help you connect with more clients, more easily? When in doubt ask an expert like Matt Payne.
I’m going to be hanging in http://www.kathienelson.com/workshops/social-networking-for-busy-people/ doing just that! thought you might want to join me and start getting more clear on how you can use Facebook to help you grow your business, connect to people, and serve your clients!
