*Your Two Steps to Becoming a Sales SuperStar*

1) Take YOU out ofrepparttar selling process.

Ask questions and let THEM tell you why they need your product/service. In other words. Qualify, qualify. Then re-qualify. If your suspect does not qualify, great, they're not a prospect.

Wonderful. Move on torepparttar 117842 next suspect. Teach yourself to ask questions that will make your suspect qualify themselves quickly. Sort - Don't Sell. Sort - Don't sell.

IF you'll let them, they'll sell themselves. Of course it's easier for you to talk, talk, talk.

If everyone says you're a good salesperson because you're such a good talker...Baby you're in Big Trouble.

2) Fall in Love. Yeah, I'm serious as a letter bomb. Fall in love with -- YOURSELF!

You will never receive all that *you deserve* until you fall in love with - YOU. But be prepared. You have years of brainwashing to trash out. But you can do it. If I can, anyone on God's sweet planet can too.

If you're a subscriber to my Free Newsletter *The Home Grown Biz Advocate* You get a free book that will teach you a simple method -- to fall in Love with Yourself.

Note that I didn't say easy. I said simple. And I'm available for a little coaching. If that's what it takes.
