When a pitch goes badly — sales pitch, investor pitch, plea for company resources, whatever — there’s usually a specific moment when it falls apart. Before that moment, your audience gives you the benefit of the doubt. After that moment, they’re tuned out. You can almost feel them turn against you. I’ve noticed that nine times out of 10, when things go south, it happens at a single, identifiable point in the story: The moment when you introduce the thing you’re pitching. Why Does This Happen? When most people pitch, they introduce their solution as an assertion. It usually sounds like this: So to solve that problem, we’re building X, which does … “ Introducing your solution this way seems ob

I’m remembering the feedback from the last VIP Mastermind, recall the businesses, collaborations and the new profit channels that developed from the session- and I think back to 6 years ago, having the scary idea of creating a platform to reach and teach women all over the world. I remember wishing for a chance to expand Dream Build Success, and hoping for a chance to speak more, and looking for an opportunity to reach women in London, China, Brazil, and Australia and every corner of the earth. Then, I remember the day I stopped wishing for a chance, and simply took the chance I was given. That’s what this entire conference is about. It’s a unique chance for women and men, all over the world


Word-of-mouth marketing is one of the most powerful tools in sales today, and yet, it remains deeply misunderstood and underused. In my extensive sales background, even when I’m working with highly experienced professionals, I find many can’t fully explain word-of-mouth, how to create it, or why it works. Even when they’ve previously benefited directly from it, they struggle to identify how it even happened in the first place. All they know is that word-of-mouth exists and that it’s important to have. That’s a deeply unsatisfying answer. Like all aspects of marketing, word-of-mouth isn’t something that just happens. It’s the outcome of a series of deliberate steps designed to produce an anti


So, you’ve ended the week more tired, but not a dollar richer? This is a common problem. You put on a suit, you shuffled some emails, you had a coffee meeting, you worked a job, etc, but you haven’t moved an inch further towards growing your business or making money. You allowed your day to be ruled by tasks and people who aren’t in your money lane, who are on your purpose train and you may not be aware and certainly not focused on your #1’s. Checkout your daily assignments. Those tasks that you must do to grow the business. Those meeting with key people. People who can sign checks and book entry visas. Again, it’s all in how you arrange and organize your day. Today, I want to save you ti
