If you're having trouble asking for the sale in your business, you're not alone!

Whether your selling something for $30 or $30,000 there is a formula for mastering sales. If you don't master sales in your business you just have a hobby. And you can't make a difference in the world if you can't master this process because people won't know about your products or services.

First off you have to get over yourself, and think you're being SALESY. Here's the truth, you are not being pushy if you are creating a caring conversation in showing the value of how you can transform someone's life.

Mastering sales is about mastering yourself, and the ability to listen and ask the right questions. It's never about pushing someone into what they don't want.

That's very old school tactics and it's not what we're talking about here on the show.

It's time that you OWN your power and master the art of sales. The power of your questions DOES determine your life!
