Live call with Tory on Tuesday

June 4, 2010 12:24 PM

As my daughter and I walked our dog after dinner last night, a couple stopped us on Columbus Avenue, a busy street in the city.

“Thank you so much for what you do,” the woman said as she clutched my arm. “You’ve helped me in more ways than you’ll ever realize.” I smiled and thanked her for the kind words.

She explained that after watching one of my segments on Good Morning America, she signed up for these newsletters. One of the first emails she received was an invitation to my free coaching call back in April. (I remember that call distinctly because it was from my hotel room at the Intercontinental in Chicago.)

The woman, whose name I never got during our three-minute chat, credits that specific call with helping her sell life coaching services.

“Typically someone would balk at my fees, and even though I knew they were extremely fair, instead of saying so, I’d immediately offer a discount or several freebies,” she recounted. “Well, after those freebies, they never needed to pay for my services.” (Sound familiar, anyone?)

“On that call on a very cold night, you gave me specific words to use to overcome those sales objections,” now even her husband was smiling. “In just two months I’ve signed more clients and made more money than in the previous 12 months. It was that simple.”

As we continued on our way with our now-antsy Beagle, my daughter asked if I like when people compliment my work. “What I really love,” I told her, “is when my work helps women make money.” Emma understood immediately.

I got home and instantly decided to schedule two free coaching calls this coming Tuesday, June 8—one at 1PM ET, the other at 8PM ET. And you’re invited to call in.

You already know that I’m over-the-top wild about my Spark & Hustle National Conference—and I’ll do anything I can (within reason!) to get you there. Why? Because I know so many of you have that spark—the idea, the passion, the potential for a phenomenal small business. But too many of you must learn how to hustle. That’s not to say in any way that you’re lazy. No, no, no. Hustle is all about effective marketing and sales—the stuff that’s often ignored because you rather DO than SELL. I get it…and I want to help.

If you’re in business for yourself or you want to be, financial success comes down to your willingness and ability to convert leads into sales. Let’s not run from that; let’s embrace it instead.

On Tuesday, June 8, you’re invited to the all-new (and totally free) teleclass: Sales SHABBY to Sales SAVVY where small business coach Michelle Pippin and I will cover the specific strategies you must master if you’re truly committed to making more money in your business. If you are great at what you do, but you’re having a hard time getting people to pay for it, this call is for you.

I hope you'll join us and come ready to take some notes because this fast-moving, hard-hitting 30-minute workshop will get you moving toward money.

As always we have a limited number of phone lines, so RSVP now to reserve your preferred time slot.

Send an email to rsvp@sparkandhustle.com and indicate 1PM ET or 8PM ET. (These are the ONLY times the 30 minute live calls will be offered.)

I hope you’ll agree that nabbing a few key tactics on how to make more money is well worth 30 minutes of your time. And maybe you’ll be the next woman who stops me in the street or the mall or the airport to share a big success.

Have a great weekend!

Tory Johnson
