How to Get More Strategy Sessions

How to Get More Strategy Sessions

 

Shannon here with a HOT (and super-simple) speaking strategy to get more strategy sessions.

As you know, one of our big “Speaking Secrets” is NOT to sell on stage (like most struggling Speakers). Instead – give them a Strategy Session for FREE. We’ve found the best way to enroll clients is through strategy sessions.

Which means…you need MORE Strategy Sessions if you want MORE clients who you can serve with your world changing message.

So here is our HOT and uber-simple way to get more Strategy Sessions:

GIVE THEM AWAY- (to IDEAL Clients of course!)

 Next time you meet someone who feels like they’d be a fit for your program at Starbucks or Whole Foods or at your kid’s soccer practice- invite them to get a Complimentary Strategy Session with you. Yes – you must be speaking more. Yes, Meetups are easy to set up and are ideal with ONLY a few people.

But in-between your small speaking gigs – I know the Universe is sending you a FLOOD of people from your Tribe who are WAITING for a Strategy Session with you.

Be open to those magical moments when simply saying this, in the middle of your day, in the middle of your town, to someone you feel aligned with…will bring you more strategy sessions:

“I’m happy to give you more support over the phone. Would you be interested in a Complimentary Strategy Session?  I’m available on Tues or TH, which day works best for you?”

Mmmm – that is HOT & JUICY!

How Will YOU Put This Super Simple Strategy Into ACTION This Week?

Riding an elephant in BALI

Mark here…riding an elephant with my beautiful bride in the jungle. I never thought life could be so magically sweet. I want you to read the following post for one simple reason:

I want you to ride YOUR elephant.

What is YOUR “elephant” you might ask… what are your big goals and dreams?

I want you to have everything you want in life. I want YOU to be in a full day spa in Bali. I want YOU to have homemade banana pancakes & papaya smoothies outside, in front of an infinity pool.

I want YOU to get your ears waxed with a hot candle (not sure why, actually – they say it’s good for you ;).

I want YOU to spend 2 weeks on total break in the jungle…immersing yourself in healing waters.

I want YOU to have and do whatever you WANT for your life. Now, because of speaking – Shannon and I are living our dream. We want you to have the same.

In 2016, Shannon and I have become even clearer on our path on how to best serve you. Our recent trip to Bali and Thailand ignited our mission in exciting new ways. This year is going to be the  BEST year of our Tribe’s lives. So get ready my friend – big things are coming…

For now, release your juicy soul in the comments:

 

“What is ONE HOT TRIP you WANT to manifest in 2016?”

 

When you master our “Speak Your Path to Cash” system – it will manifest quicker than you think.

In your corner and by your side,

Mark & Shannon

I felt so embarrassed….

I felt so embarrassed….

 

As a Conscious Business Owners – this might be one of your deeper challenges you’ll need to breakthrough in 2016. Quick story:

I remember at one of the first Meetups Mark & I put on. This was already our 4th Meetup and I was hoping to see more butts in seats ;)….so when I only saw 3 people, I immediately felt…

 

EMBARRASSED!

 

It wasn’t only feeling embarrassed that only 3 people showed up to our life changing Meetup. It was for another reason. And this might be something you deeply struggle with as well.

 

BEING SEEN

 

I envisioned myself in front of tens of thousands, on a huge stage…with that footage being featured on Oprah. I felt this was my life’s work and an expression of my own soul. So when 3 people showed up – it felt like a poor reflection of my grander vision.

I felt like the person they were seeing wasn’t who I wanted them to see. As I expressed this to Mark, he did what he does best: give HOT clarity.

Mark said, “Babe, they don’t want to see you on Oprah or in front of millions…they just want you to help them. All they want is YOU…”

So TRUE!  And here’s WHY Mark was so right on. Mark brought the focus from “Me” to “We”.

When I’m worried about how I’m seen, it’s a selfish game with lots of pain. It’s not what we’re here for. But when I’m focused on serving, on giving, on offering specific solutions to a specific Tribe….I start to feel the Big Impact we’re releasing in the world. And nothing is HOTTER than that, nothing.

Be juicy and inspire the Tribe:

 

How can you shift from “Me” to “We” focused?

 

We believe in you,

Take More Pictures

Take More Pictures

 

When Tony Robbins or Marianne Williamson got started as Conscious Speakers a few decades ago – they had a TON of obstacles we’ll never have. Shannon here with one of the easiest strategies you and I can do today – that was either impossible or insanely expensive back in the day.

Mark and I call it the “TMP” strategy. This helps you be seen as an authority for your Tribe…and it takes just 3 seconds to do.

And as simple as this strategy might sound to you – I know you’re not doing enough of it. The more you do of it – the more your Tribe will see you as their trusted authority who can help them solve their specific challenges.

 

TMP = Take More Pictures

 

30 years ago, Tony Robbins either hired an entire staff to take pictures of him speaking….or had no cool pictures at all. For us? It’s our phones.

Just ask your friend to take a few pictures of you speaking, with the mic in your hand, chatting with someone on stage after your talk.

Send them in a follow up email or put on your own Meetup page. There’s a deep psychological connection that your Tribe craves to feel with you. And images help a lot.

Let me know in the comments my awesome friend:

 

Who will you ask to take a few pictures of you at your next talk?

 

We believe in you,

Mark & Shannon
