Building relationships and providing value are essential in sales, regardless of the industry or approach. Attending conferences and events can be a valuable way to meet potential clients and generate leads. Social media platforms like Twitter and LinkedIn can be used to connect with prospects and set up meetings.

https://www.thesaleswhisperer.com/p/ben-john Name your price for the Make Every Sale Program here: https://saleswhisperer.gumroad.com/l/OiXZk Sound Bites "As long as you're not out here being a douche and you actually care about people." "They're pretty much teaching business in a very immature way." "There's a huge problem here that I've noticed." "Why are we using middle school behavior and strategies in business and sales?" "You try that crap with my wife, she would tear you apart" "Probing and hard questions in sales feel immature." Takeaways Being opinionated is important as long as it is not accompanied by judgmental behavior. Some coaches and mentors use deceptive practices and manipulation techniques to grow their businesses. The coaching industry can be a scam, and it is important to exercise discernment and critical thinking when engaging with coaches and mentors. The influence of Scientology can be seen in the coaching world. Individuals can be vulnerable to manipulation during uncertain times. Avoid using manipulative tactics in sales and focus on creating a positive and relaxed sales experience. Pay attention to red flags and trust your intuition when something feels wrong. Question and challenge beliefs and mentorship programs that don't align with your values. Seek out new information and engage in dialogue to expand your understanding and perspective.

Takeaways Real estate is always a good investment, but it's crucial to do thorough research and understand the market before jumping in. When transitioning to a new career or starting a new business, it's important to take time to heal and find your identity. Identify your strengths and weaknesses and focus on what you're good at. Don't be afraid to hire others to handle tasks that are not your strengths. Tax lien investing can be a lucrative investment strategy, but it requires knowledge of the process and understanding the rules in different states.

Consider bartering or trading services with mentors or experts in your field if you can't afford to hire them.
