Do you ask for help or try to figure things out on your own? Sometimes business leaders don’t get the help they need to get more done just because they think it makes them too vulnerable. But, what if being vulnerable is actually your greatest superpower as a leader?

In episode 94 of Amplify Your Success Podcast I’m talking about vulnerability and why we need more entrepreneurs and business experts embracing their imperfections.

Be sure to join the conversation in the Amplify Your Success Community about what works for you!

Key Takeaways

  • Why vulnerability is attractive and a powerful relationship bonding tool
  • Five ways you can drop in and get “real” with your team, community and friends
  • My first experience of a business leader being vulnerable and what it taught me about the leader I wanted to be
  • What the fine line between vulnerable and “messy” is for coaches and leaders

Have you ever had a goal that you talked about, dreamed about, but just could never get out of the starting gate? Or maybe you started towards that goal but then things got a bit challenging, and the goal just kind of fell away?

There’s a significant difference between being committed to a goal or just being interested in it. Interested means you’ll do JUST ENOUGH not to fail but never enough to actually succeed.

In episode 93 of Amplify Your Success Podcast I’m going through the five signs you are really committed to a bold vision (or just interested!) Knowing the difference could end up saving you a TON of disappointment and keep you from wasting time and money on a bright, shiny idea!

Be sure to join the conversation in the Amplify Your Success Community about what works for you!

Key Takeaways

  • Why your self-talk is a huge sign of your commitment level.
  • How excuses and “never having enough time” factor into someone’s commitment level.
  • The role your comfort zone plays in your ability to achieve goals you’ve never done before.
  • Can being proactive be a sign you are going to achieve a goal? Yep. I’ll tell you how proactive vs. reactive is so vital to success.
  • What you should do if you are a “how” person (meaning you need to know how before you jump in.)
  • Why if you have a bold goal, you MUST pursue it

Wouldn’t it be nice to have a steady stream of new clients flowing into your business each month? Well, it’s the opposite for most service professionals who have to work really hard to get a few key clients.

My guest on episode 91 of Amplify Your Success Podcast shares how to use the “Eavesdrop Effect” to engage your best potential clients – ultimately tripling your sales of perfect fit clients. This episode is full of actionable advice for anyone who struggles with consistent lead generation, or would like more of their ideal clients who are willing to pay your best rates!

Key Takeaways

  • What the "Eavesdrop Effect” is and how it’s a key ingredient for creating a consistent flow of leads into your business.
  • The three questions every prospect is unconsciously asking themselves (so when you answer them right, they are more likely to buy from you!)
  • An often-misunderstood approach to building trust and rapport (Dov shares why getting this right is so important!)
  • A surprising piece of advice that even I’d never heard before (think, when its appropriate to recommend your competition.)
  • Plus Dov gives an actionable tip any coach, entrepreneur or small business owner can use right away to start connecting with more ideal clients.

About the Guest

Dov Gordon helps consultant/coaches get ideal clients. Consistently.

There are millions and millions of consultant, coaches and professional service firm owners who are really good at what they do. But they're not charismatic guru types. And they never want to be.

As a visionary, thought leader or transformational change agent, intimacy with our own dream is essential to keep that fire burning and the desire necessary to keep pursuing our goals.

But way too often entrepreneurs and business leaders find themselves chasing someone else’s dream, and the motivation to climb the next “success” mountain is lost.

My guest on episode 92 of Amplify Your Success Podcast is Allana Pratt and she joins me for a powerful exploration on a subject not talked about enough – intimacy with our own voice!

Key Takeaways

  • Allana transparently reveals her own story of how she lost and recovered her intimate connection with herself – and how her business suffered then flourished during that time.
  • How to cultivate an intimate relationship with our own dream and voice to become a stronger champion for change and transformation.
  • What kind of inner game intimacy practice you can use (and its really quite simple) so as to congruently, consistently and courageously live our visionary businesses
  • How intimacy and creativity our wound together and one without the other can mean a loss of motivation!

Every small business owner has prospects ready to make the decision to hire you or purchase your products but way too often they get confused, and avoid making a purchase. The solution? Create a decision journey to help them make the best decision for them!

On episode 90 of Amplify Your Success Podcast I’m joined by The Hero Method founder Kathryn Gillett to share what a decision journey is and how creating one for your sales and marketing processes can help you close sales faster.

Key Takeaways

  • How Kathryn uncovered The Hero Method through her training in psychology and anthropology
  • How to use a The Decision Journey to double your revenue and increase your ideal client enrollments
  • The difference between the good ol' Sales Funnel and The Decision Journey (and why the decision journey works faster!)
  • Plus I get Kathryn to give us some practical advice on the top three entrepreneur “sales stuck points”

 

About the Guest:

Kathryn Gillett is the creator of The HERO Method, and author of two best-selling books on the subject. She has degrees in psychology and anthropology, 30 years' experience in marketing, and 25 years researching related fields. It was based on those years of research and experience that she created The HERO Method, a true paradigm shift that turns 180-degrees away from what we consider "best practices" in marketing communications today.

And in doing so, The HERO Method has proven to double response, revenue, and year-over-year growth (that's measurable results — not just 'ball-park hype').

Rather than creating content that shouts out how great a company’s solution is…
The HERO Method is about creating authentic, human connections with audiences.
Kathryn has brought The HERO Method to global corporations like Microsoft, Amazon, and Dell to great effect.

And now she's bringing The HERO Method to the small businesses world with on-line training programs that teach entrepreneurs all the inside secrets of this shift in marketing.
