How to Create Engaging Content that gets your Audience to take Action

  I shot this Facebook live this week in snowy Toronto while attending a Mastermind with my business mentor Stu McLaren. When I come to these sort of business events and conferences I like to bring back some practical tips and strategies that I share with the members of my community – and I thought this would be a useful…

To Launch or not to Launch

Why I love launching ( …and is this model right for you?)

During the past month you’ll have noticed a lot more activity than from me in your inbox than is “normal” during the rest of the year.  There were Facebook Live sessions on my business page, invitations to the Fall in Love with Sales Intensive, online Masterclasses, Q&A sessions – and yes (I do know it) what might have felt like…

How to know what Marketing will work for you

Last week I got up on one of my favourite soapboxes to talk about online marketing and the dangers for an early-stage business of jumping on the online bandwagon too early.  If you missed it you can read it here. As you probably know, I’m actually crazy about online business and online marketing – with it’s potential reach many thousands…

I get asked a lot “What should I be charging?”  or “What is the “right price” for my products and services?”. Well here’s the gnarly thing about pricing – it isn’t an exact science.  There actually is no such…

How to Fall in Love with Sales

If you are like most of the heart-centred business owners that I know you probably shy away from situations that involve “selling” your services. I know this sounds kind of crazy because of course you do want clients! But it’s actually really common – you’re in business because you want to make a difference to others, or because you are…

Closing Sale

Why “Closing the Sale” doesn’t work for a Heart-Centred Business

A few years ago I ran a poll as part of a webinar I was running on “heart-centred sales”. To my surprise over half of the respondents answered that their biggest sales challenge was “Closing the Sale”. This response was not what I expected, and for me it marked one of those big “Aha!” moments that helped me understand my…
