Overcoming the Biggest Sales Challenges in the Mind, Body & Spirit Industry:
Thriving in a Tough Economy and Honouring the True Value of Your Gifts/Talents

As a professional in the mind, body and spirit business, the core of your business revolves around your natural talents and gifts.  Business owners in this industry often undervalue or even give away these gifts for free thus undermining the business they are trying to build.

Another big challenge that business owners currently face in this industry is surviving the tough economy.  During a good economy you might be able to get away with classic sales tactics and feature & benefit based selling, but when the market is tougher, prospects’ buying motives change. They become more educated, more reserved and understanding how to survive in this kind of market is critical for small businesses.

  • Uncover areas where you are undervaluing your talents or giving them away for free and learn the impacts on your business.
  • Learn how prospects buying motives can change in a tough economy.
  • Discover what sales approach does work in the mind, body and spirit industry.
  • Learn how to motivate your sales force to take responsibility and stop undervaluing your talents/gifts.
  • Learn how the Sandler approach to selling can help grow your business even in the most difficult market conditions.
