Dave Early joins Sean to discuss the draft night that came and went and the Sixers made a trade (!), sending the 23rd overall pick and Danny Green to Memphis for De'Anthony Melton. Sean and Dave Early discuss their overall draft impressions, reaction to the trade, and what Melton will bring to the table for Philadelphia. They also break down how the move makes the rumored pursuits of P.J. Tucker and Eric Gordon much less likely. Finally, they comment on the recent noise out of Brooklyn and the never-gonna-happen, but still fun-to-discuss ideas of Kyrie Irving or Kevin Durant coming to Philly.

It's no secret that school lunches have been in decline for decades. Chances are, the food you remember from school would give you nightmares if your child's cafeteria served it in 2022. Yes, Michelle Obama did some good work in the space – and progress has been made. But as we learn today, there's a lot of work left to do when we're talking about truly healthy school lunches. My guest today, Barbara Mechura, school nutrition director and holistic health coach, has dedicated her career to shifting this narrative toward scratch-made meals. We learn that, while it's certainly more work, these mindfully prepared meals lead to a better outcome for everyone involved (students and staff). It's time we stopped taking the easy way out with pre-packaged convenience foods that create serious long-term problems for students' health. Barbara shares how we can get involved in our school district's food decisions, and that they probably need our help. You will learn about...

Take any popular dish – pizza, ice cream, hot dogs – and try to trace its origin story. Chances are, you're going to go on a winding road with conflicting accounts of who actually invented the dish, or whether it was invented by one, single person at all. KQED's Silicon Valley reporter Adhiti Bandlamudi recently ate a dish so mish-mashed with foods from different countries, that she found herself on a food origin story journey that led her across the world and then back to the Bay Area. Additional Reading: The Sizzler: The California Origin Story Behind One of India's Flashiest Dishes Reported by Adhiti Bandlamudi.

Do you have trouble finding a good balance between your personal life, professional life, and parenting life? You may feel terribly overwhelmed, as I sometimes do, by the pile of work in front of you. Maybe you ask yourself, “how am I supposed to get anything DONE?!” In this episode, I hope to demystify that process by explaining what I call “Maintenance Mode” work. Chances are high that the way to find good balance in your life is not by completing all tasks, but by doing a little bit of each at a time until they are as done as they can be. You see, the dishes and the laundry literally never end, unless you decide to return to your prehistoric roots, walking the earth in the buff and eating with your hands! The grass never stops growing. But once you take even a tiny step toward washing the dishes or taming the jungle in the backyard, you have entered Maintenance Mode, the ideal place to be. Now, my personal favorite method of organizing tasks is Dave Braun and Troy Amdahl's Oola method (see Episode 73). Oola partitions life's many tasks into 7 groups: Fitness, Finance, Family, Field, Faith, Friends, and Fun. BUT you should adopt the organization that works for you, and tweak it to your specific circumstances. As you take small AND consistent steps toward finishing a finishable task, or toward controlling an unfinishable task, I promise on a stack of Bibles, you will see the results of working in Maintenance Mode.

We have all heard the phrase : follow your passion and everything will fall into place. But I also can't help but to think of another very popular phrase which is : some things are much easier said than done.I find it funny that when I was younger and I was asked 'what do you want to be when you grow up', my response was one that was very confident and it came with no hesitation…mind you I was also five years old at the time.But if you were to ask me this same question today, I would be confident in saying that I actually don't know. Now this isn't to say it's a bad thing to not be able to pinpoint what it is that you want to do for the rest of your life…and that's because we're finally realizing we are multifaceted human beings who are constantly growing, learning and embracing different versions of ourselves.Of course, change can be frightening, especially in today's world which is laced with so much uncertainty, but what do you do if you no longer enjoy the career path you had chosen for yourself?In today's episode, I have an insightful conversation with none other than Maariyah Choudrey, who is a Chief of Staff at Uber, content creator and your big sis in tech!Chances are you have come across a post or video of Maariyah's account, which is @lifewithmaars, where she shares business tips and advice for working women, her love of modest fashion and beauty, and where she documents her adventures as a foodie in NYC.So, what is the secret of those who do make it to the other side? The ones who take the leap and pivot careers?In this conversation, Maariyah shares her career transition journey from pre-med to finance and her most recent role in tech. We also navigate the ways in which one can leverage their skills and their network to successfully pivot careers. Fear of failure may be at the forefront of our minds, but Maariyah discusses her own personal experiences with self doubt and finding the confidence within her that is needed to move forward. As Muslim women, in today's society, how can we show up as our full selves in the workplace without comprising our beliefs and faith?Tune in to find out!Enjoy and follow the pod on Instagram:@unsweetenedandunfilteredFollow Maariyah on Instagram:@lifewithmaars

Are you on a spiritual journey right now? Chances are, if you are in your 30s or 40s, you have been on a spiritual journey of some sort, and maybe you still are going through the motions of it. As for me, my spiritual journey started here in Australia due to the “at-home time” I had during the pandemic so I had the space to dig deep. As for many of us, it caused us to pause and reevaluate our purpose in life. It was my desire to reconnect with my intuition and keep my head above the water if I wanted to make progress on my business. This brings me to this week's guest, Johnson Chong, the best-selling and award-winning author of Sage Sapien: From Karma to Dharma. Johnson is passionate about creating a bridge between ancient wisdom, energy medicine, and direct modern application. His unique experiences offer a profoundly healing self-discovery experience, followed by very practical and actionable steps to create lasting change. With his background as a teacher who trains yoga teachers and pilates teachers, Johnson has an expansive knowledge of the physical body and how the psyche can create stagnation on all levels – physical, mental, emotional, and energetic. Today, Johnson shares his shamanic wisdom to help us keep it all together in all the roles that we are playing in life – in the most authentic way possible. Whether you're a child of parents who are also on their own spiritual journey or maybe you have conflicting beliefs, this is definitely a great episode for you to listen to. Gain an appreciation for both your feminine and masculine sides and learn to reconnect with them. Share this with someone else who is also curious about the idea of doing inner work and its benefits on your life. As a mom, you do not want to let the spark of a business idea get caught in the undercurrent of motherhood. This month, I will be offering 3 VIP Moms In Business Coaching spots for moms who wish to build a resilient business capable of bouncing back after any family interruption. It is during our day together that we will map out your precise implementation plan with the realities of being a caregiver in mind.

Johnson Chong's Biography Johnson Chong is the best-selling and award-winning author of Sage Sapien: From Karma to Dharma. He is also a TedX Speaker, shaman, and the founder of Sage Sapien Soul Academy where he trains aspiring meditation and breathwork teachers. Through the synthesis of the most applicable teachings of yoga, meditation, breathwork, coaching, and shamanic healing, Johnson's training programs are designed to help people quiet the mind, awaken the heart, and free themselves of the roadblocks that keep them from living more authentically and joyfully. Johnson has spoken and led workshops at companies like Unilever, Facebook, Nike, Macquarie, Insight Timer, UBS, UOB, and more. Johnson is a native New Yorker, has lived on three continents, and is currently based in Sydney, Australia. Highlights Mental state: Modern people have to make use of technology in healthy ways. To keep his mental state, Johnson uses a pulsed electromagnetic frequency device, which mirrors back high-functioning brainwave states. Spirituality: Your spiritual path is personal and one with huge benefits that can span generations. In my case, having this business led me to seek my spiritual path. Balance: You have both feminine and masculine energies inside of you and both are equally important. Navigating life requires both sides of you and if you are too tilted in one direction, your kids may compensate in the opposite to maintain the balance in your home. Taking risks: You can search for a safe job, choice, or relationship but then you may miss out on the adventure of taking a risk – and the risk could sometimes mean being true to yourself. Imagination: Deciding to be a mom was the biggest risk I took. Learning to reawaken my imagination and stay true to myself was essential in navigating all the ups and downs. Resilience: We have all experienced some level of discomfort, pain, or things that didn't turn out the way we wanted. And so, you have to practice getting good at knowing how to be okay in the storm and weather it. Focus: When you learn to focus your attention on the moment or on the different types of sensations in your body, you're learning extreme focus, which is necessary for all things in life. Purpose: We have to go back and sit with all of the pain, the hurt, as well as the things we never wanted and can't quite fully accept in the past before we can get to our life purpose. In order to enjoy more of life, you have to get deep and dirty in it. Lower and upper worlds: The spiritual journey is not just up there but also down there. From a shamanic perspective, you go into the lower world first before you go up into the upper world. Sacred feminine: When we're talking about meeting certain things within ourselves that are darker or we want to hide away, that's the sacred feminine. We're not wanting to confront that and we're denying a part of ourselves. Yin Yang: Masculine and feminine (not male and female) energies are more of the essence of a plus and a minus charge – masculine, being the plus charge of the battery; and feminine, as the minus charge of the battery. Both are necessary to make the battery work. (+) energy: Masculine energy is a giving, forward-giving energy. It's about direction. It is structured, mathematical, and philosophical. (–) energy: Feminine energy is wild, creative, sexual energy which you can channel into art or an enlightened state. Chaos: Anything that's chaotic and destroys the norm, or the way that we perceive the norm is the feminine force. We associate that as bad, but it's part of nature, just like a hurricane. Business: A masculine force is being a high achiever. But the world's top billionaires have experienced great losses. That's them risking diving into the feminine, which is the great unknown, and then they come back up. Rest: When the minus comes down, you now have the opportunity to rest, restore, read, and do things that are nourishing for yourself. It's winter break. Flow: Part of the spiritual journey is understanding these waves within ourselves, and then expressing that. Balance: Our job as human beings is to find the balance between masculine energy and feminine energy. Parents: A lot of immigrant families have a very masculine driving force. And so the kids have to have a structured life. So they have to learn to be okay with being vulnerable in public and being a bit messy. Toxic family: A toxic relationship is a toxic relationship, sometimes, you have to end it. We can't judge trauma because you never know how that inspires someone else. Pain: If you swallow your pain up and pretend it's not there, it's going to build into something toxic and your children may have to create some distance from you. Service: Every person, whatever their unique story is, has the capacity to make a choice of how to deal with their pain. You can take your pain and turn it into service and inspire you to help others. If you enjoyed this conversation, check out these episodes with similar themes: Michael A.

#736 - David Martin The David Martin Interview is featured on The Paul Leslie Hour. Are you here? Okay! Everyone's here. It's The Paul Leslie Hour and you're welcome here. This is an interview from the archives with songwriter David Martin, known for being a part of the songwriting group of Arnold, Martin & Morrow. Now… David Martin lives and breathes the songs. Chances are, you've heard something David Martin wrote. His songs have sold over 26 million records around the world, but all stories have a beginning. For the British singer-songwriter, he began his career as a member of the group Butterscotch on RCA Records. Soon after, he formed a songwriting partnership with Chris Arnold and Geoff Morrow. The partnership resulted in many the composition of many songs recorded by the true legends of recorded music, including Cliff Richard, Wayne Newton, Dusty Springfield, Cilla Black, and Mama Cass. The legendary Elvis Presley recorded four of their songs: “Let's Be Friends,” “A Little Bit of Green,” “Sweet Angeline” and “This is the Story.” Quick side note, how many of you are planning on seeing the new movie simply entitled “ELVIS” releasing on June 24th? We can't wait… Now, one of the songs David Martin wrote has brought many smiles to the world. David Martin's song “Can't Smile Without You” would become a pop standard and worldwide hit after being recorded by Barry Manilow. Manilow was not the first, nor the last artist to record the song. The Carpenters, Engelbert Humperdinck, Vic Damone, Andy Williams, Gino Cunico and others would perform and record their own versions. The song has been performed countless times in concert, been featured in motion pictures. The song earned Martin three BMI awards for over 3 million airplays. Although HE continues to write songs, he is still very much a singer. He has a great admiration for the great songwriters of the American Songbook, those lyricists and composers who wrote the standards: Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, Harold Arlen, Johnny Mercer and Sammy Cahn. It is his love for these American classics that resulted in his album “Silky Smooth Moments.” Accompanied by the Terry Coffey Trio, David Martin sings standards like “I'll Be Seeing You” and “In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning,” and one written by David Martin himself. It's a beautiful gesture from David Martin. Although he has accomplished so much with his own songs, he pays tribute to the great songwriters who came before him. We invite you into the world and passion of David Martin, where songs with great messages never die. They endure. If you get a moment, perhaps you'll help us out.

For the first time in U.S. history, we have employees from five different generations working side by side. With so many different perspectives and life experiences, conflict is inevitable. Unfortunately, this often leads to stereotyping. We classify colleagues as millennial snowflakes, entitled young people, or clueless boomers. When this happens, we miss out on some of the greatest business opportunities of the twenty-first century. Opportunities to build better products and services informed by a diverse mix of views. Chances to develop better learning experiences where we cross pollinate different generational strengths. Fortunately, Megan Gerhardt's written a book to help us navigate the shark-filled waters of multi-generational management. It's called, Gentelligence: The Revolutionary Approach to Leading an Intergenerational Workforce. In it, she shares the hallmarks of each generation, including what motivates and worries them. She also shares insightful ways to lead and build rapport. It's a resource you'll return to again and again.

Do you want to grow your audience? Of course you do. Almost every podcaster I encounter wants a larger audience. On this episode, I want to give you ways to grow your audience in 30 days. Here are the resources mentioned in this episode: Libsyn: www.Libsyn.com The Feed podcast: thefeed.libsyn.com Strategy Transformation Call: www.PodcastTalentCoach.com/call Listener Development Worksheet: www.PodcastTalentCoach.com/listener STRATEGY CALL There are times when we are too close to the situation to see the solution. As the saying goes, "You can't see the forest for the trees." You are too close to the details to see the whole. This is the purpose of my new Strategy Transformation Call. I want to help you get clear on your goals and how to achieve them. If your strategy isn't working, or worse yet you have no strategy, this one hour of coaching is for you. You and I will get on a one-hour call to discuss where you are now. Then, we will clearly define your goals. Finally, we will develop a plan to reach those goals and see if I have any resources that will help you get there. An hour of my coaching is typically $250. These Strategy Transformation Calls are only $97. However, there are limited spots. I can't fill up my calendar. I need to leave room for my full clients. This also isn't a high pressure sales call. We will take the time to get to know each other and build your plan to win. I'll show you how to get there. If at the end of the call we both feel I can help you in some way, we can discuss it. But it needs to be right for both of us. Best of all, you'll be clear on how to reach your goals. Isn't that worth investing an hour of your time? You can keep wandering toward success. Or, you can build a map and follow it. Stop wasting your time throwing things against the wall to see what sticks. Let me show you what has worked for many of my clients over the years. Get your Strategy Transformation Call at www.PodcastTalentCoach.com/call. The sooner you grab your call, the more options you'll have with regard to call times. See which calendar options are open for you. Grab your Strategy Transformation Call at www.PodcastTalentCoach.com/call. Let me help you reach your goals. WHY GROW So, why do you want to grow your audience. I know it sounds like a crazy question. Who doesn't want to grow their audience? But, have you ever stopped to ask yourself why you want to grow? Do you want a big audience simply to feed your ego? Sure, it feels good to have a large audience. We can boast to our podcasting buddies. But what does it do for you and your business? We can't grow simply for the sake of growing. Maybe you want to leave your mark on the world. The impact you have on your audience is powerful. The bigger the audience, the bigger the impact. Maybe you want to build an audience of your ideal clients to help you grow your business. Your podcast could be all about motivation. It could be that you want to build an audience that you can inspire and motivate. When you know why you want to grow, you have a bigger purpose. This helps you stay motivated when the going gets tough. When you don't feel like doing the work, your why helps kick you in the butt and get you moving. Take a minute and get clear on your real why. Go three or four levels deeper to get to the real why. MY WHY When I first started Podcast Talent Coach, my goal was to be an entrepreneur. I wanted to own my own business just like my family. My mom created and sold wedding cakes from our kitchen. My dad owned a gas station at one point. Entrepreneurism runs through my family. My sister created a marketing company. In Florida, my aunt and uncle owned a restaurant. Another aunt owned a craft store and my uncle was a handyman. Even my nephews are entrepreneurs. It is in my blood. But history can't be my why. That isn't inspiring. And, I grew very slowly. Once my daughter and son hit high school, I realized my time with them at home was coming to an end. They would soon be traveling the world. I was stuck in a nine-to-five and couldn't freely follow them. It became clear that I needed to control my own time to allow myself to travel when I wanted and work wherever I needed. Time with my kids became my true why. When I don't feel like doing the work, I remember time with my family and get to work. It is easy for you to push this step aside and think you know your why. But, trust me. Take the time to get very clear on your why. Write it down and revise it until you get those butterflies in your stomach, because you know what is possible on the other side when you do the work. QUALITY So, how big is big enough? I really encourage you to focus on quality over quantity. An audience of a few hundred who are incredibly passionate about what you do is so much more powerful than an audience of a few thousand who have a superficial interest. Build your audience of your ideal clients who want to work with you and want everything you create. When you look at download numbers, it varies from podcast to podcast and industry to industry. Podcasts in the big three niches will have many more downloads than podcasts in smaller niches. You can't compare podcasts in different niches. It isn't apples to apples. Shows in the same niche often differ greatly when it comes to downloads. Avoid comparing yourself to the Joneses. You'll only be disappointed. THE DATA With that said, here are some stats straight from Libsyn, the podcast hosting service. Rob Walch, VP of Podcaster Relations at Libsyn, has presented the state of the union a few times at Podcast Movement. He also provides data monthly on the podcast The Feed. The data varies greatly every month. Rob looks at all podcasts on Libsyn that were released between 30 and 60 days ago. On average, these episodes are 45 days old. This data is based on active shows in the month of April, 2022. These are shows that are releasing new content, unlike the charts that show all shows. For the month of April, the median number of downloads for all active shows is 150. That means if you are getting 150 downloads for your episode after it has been available for 30 days, you are better than half of all shows currently releasing new episodes on Libsyn. To put it all in perspective, if you get more than 1,300 downloads, you are better than 80% of all active shows on Libsyn. More than 3,600 downloads puts you in the top 10%. If you have more than 8,200 downloads on your episode after it has been available for 30 days, you are better than 95% of all active shows on Libsyn. 21,000 downloads puts you in the top 2%. And 35,000 on an episode means you have more downloads than 99% of all podcasts available on Libsyn. Rob also gives the adjusted mean. This is the average where he throws out the top 0.5% along with those with 3 or fewer downloads. This helps avoid skewing the numbers by outliers. The adjusted mean is 1,561. NO SPONSORS Only 7.7% of all active podcasts on Libsyn get more than 5,000 downloads per episode after being available for 30 to 60 days. This 5,000 download number is the benchmark for advertising and sponsors. That means more than 92% of all podcasts have fewer than 5,000 and really aren't candidates for sponsors. Chances are, you fall into this 92% category. You can hear the episode at www.PodcastTalentCoach.com/thefeed. And if you aren't using Libsyn as your hosting, you can get your first month for free by using my affiliate coupon code of PTC at Libsyn.com. Keep these numbers in mind and avoid comparing your show to others. Focus on your why and your listeners. Serve and you will reach your goals. WHERE ARE THEY Your listeners are key. You hear everyone encourage you to define your avatar. Most of the time we create this vague image of a group of people we want to reach. That is not your target listener. That group is your market, not your target. One person is your target. You want that person defined so clearly that you can picture that person in your mind. It is so clear that it reminds you of someone you know. When you get this clear on your ideal client, you know exactly where to find them. You will know what influencers have their attention, where they hang out online and how you can get in front of them. If you want to get really clear on your ideal listener and client, download my target listener worksheet at www.PodcastTalentCoach.com/listener. This sheet will help you get focused on that one person. We will talk about this quite a bit on your Strategy Transformation Call. We can't hit a target we can't see. You and I will define this person and build a strategy to reach them. Get your call at www.PodcastTalentCoach.com/call. THE EQUATION Once you have determined your ideal target listener and client, you can now build your audience. There are two sides of the equation. First, you need to get in front of your ideal listener and invite them to your show. Next, you need to keep your current listeners coming back episode after episode. If you don't focus on both sides of the equation, you will not see growth. If you only focus on getting new listeners, it is like pouring water in a bucket with holes. The more you add, the more that leaks out. Your podcast doesn't grow. When you only focus on your current listeners, attrition will cause your audience to shrink. Many podcasters promote new episodes by emailing their list and posting on social media. Those people already know you. That doesn't grow the audience. However, it does help keep your current listeners coming back. To grow your show, spend time on both sides of the equation. HOW TO GROW You can grow your show over the next 30 days by following a process. Step one is defining your target listener. Again, grab that worksheet and get clear. Download it at www.PodcastTalentCoach.com/listener. Step two is to get in front of those listeners. Tell them what you do and how you help. Make them aware of you and your show. The next step is to get them on your email list. Many people invite those people to listen to the podcast. But if those people don't come back, you lose them forever. Step four is to invite them to listen. When you get them on your email list, you can continue the conversation and invite them to listen again and again. Finally step five is getting them to come back. Create a strategy that reminds listeners to come back every episode so you can build that relationship and monetize your show. It is a simple, step-by-step process. But, it is not easy to follow without accountability. You need focus, be diligent and be consistent. Let me show you how to do that.

Parents know that it takes patience, encouragement, and consistent action to teach a baby to walk. The baby takes one step and the parents cheer.She falls down, the parents say, “That's OK. You can do it!”The baby walks just a few feet, and she's a champion.Why don't we use the same encouragement for our employees and coworkers?DON'T LOOK FOR PERFECTION RIGHT AWAY. LOOK FOR IMPROVEMENT.Most managers constantly call attention to the mistakes of their employees. Then they wonder why they must constantly look over the shoulders of their people. The secret to being a good manager is that whatever you call attention to, you get more of.So, instead of pointing out the mistake, point out the improvement in the right direction.If we want to build great leaders, we must help build their confidence as they gain experience. Call attention to their successes no matter how small these successes seem to be. When we do that, we are anchoring the positive behavior that they are exhibiting.Want to change behavior? Try calling attention to someone's mistake indirectly, and then watch to see how the behavior changes.When you catch that person doing things the right way, praise the improvement. Chances are that you'll begin to see this behavior more consistently.Praise improvements in the right direction, and you'll build strong leaders around you.Week #4: Developing Leaders Around You.Principle #27: Praise the Baby Steps.

Broadcasting from the Free State where DeSantis trolls the Left like nobody can this side of the Trumpster. He welcomes "African-American" support from South African born Elon Musk and on cue twitter goes wild. This is how you defang your opposition through attrition. Chances are more white liberals are offended than black people. Recession looms in the minds of a majority of Americans according to at YouGov poll. Certainly we can count on the Biden administration to address the fears. Oh yes, they demand the hated oil companies to produce more oil now, just so they can shut down the industry in the future. That's Economics 101 right? Will vaccinating you 6 months to 5 year-old child with Covid mRNA shots prevent hospitalizations or death? Who the hell knows, but it will make them produce antibodies and that's enough for Fauci and the Govt. Meanwhile Ron DeSantis is the only governor in the union who isn't recommending the shots for kids in that group. Happy Father's Day! DoctorTommy.com/podcast

Being a business owner means you wear many hats.Project Manager. Production Manager. Financial Officer. Customer Service.And yes… Sales Person.Chances are you aren't starting your business with a full time sales person on staff. You might be fortunate and be a natural born sales person. Or maybe your business partner is the sales person for your company (husband, wife, sibling, friend).However, if you don't come from a sales background there is a lot to learn.One of the core parts of sales is Closing Deals, in other words, getting customers to say yes and pay you.It's easy to fumble the close. Saying the wrong thing, letting customers always postpone the deal, losing out to competition.Today we are going to discuss traditional closing techniques and how you can use them.The Now or Never Close (Create Urgency)This is a close where you offer a special deal or limited offer based on signing up right now.Right now my vendor has X shirt on sale. If you buy it today I can save you 10% or $200.I've got 50 of these shirts in stock on a deal, once they are gone I cannot sell them for that price.Prices all over are going up. The supplies I have in stock are at X price, but I'll run out soon.I'm looking to fill up my production as I have a lot of jobs next month, but room for one right now. So if you buy now I can deliver faster, but if you wait, it will take longer.The Recap CloseThis is where you recap everything the customer is going to get in a brief summary. Describe everything in detail so they are excited at the idea of getting it. Then ask for the businessYou are helping them visualize the deal.You are getting 50 shirts and 20 hats with your logo. Plus mugs you will get to give away to your clients (which they will love you for.) So we can get those in production this week. Do you want to put the deposit on a credit card?The Quid Pro Quo CloseYour customer may ask for a Deal. “Can you take $300 off?” This means you've got an opportunity to present a “favor for a favor” to close the deal now.Sure. Let's do that. But in return, I'd like to sign you up right now. I've got to be very efficient to give you that price so I want to get the process started right away.Yes I can do that for you, but I'd like a favor from you too. I don't normally pass out a deal like that, and don't prefer quotes like that floating around. I can say you strong armed me with a promise to pay today.My partner doesn't like deals that slim. They are a challenge with maintaining profitability. However, if you close now, I'll have the excuse that I had to make an executive decision.Question ClosingThis is where you ask a question that the customer agrees to, and therefore the deal is good for them. If they don't say yes, then you need to dive deeper into helping them or understanding their needs.“Will this order meet your needs and fit within your budget?” Yes. Then let's get it going so you can move on to more important things."Have I covered everything you need and answered your questions? Does it all look good?" Yes. "Let's close this up and get to production.""In your opinion, will this provide the solution you need for your business? Then let's move forward and get your promotional goods in process."Assumptive CloseThis is the power of confidence and positive thinking. Just assume they will say yes.“Ok, so I can send you the invoice right now and you can pay on your phone.""Do you prefer me send the payment via PayPal or with a credit card form?""Let's go ahead and look at the calendar to pick an estimated delivery date and time. Then I can collect a deposit and get to work for you."The TakeawayThis is when a customer isn't sure of the price you are charging. So you remove something to make the deal fit their budget. Some people will then begin to think about what they aren't getting and want to close the deal"Well, if this isn't in your budget, we can go ahead and remove those mugs you talked about giving your clients. That should save you the money you need to fit your budget.""We can go with a less premium shirt. It won't be quite as comfortable and long lasting but it will save you money and fit your budget. Not everyone buys the premium shirts."Tips:Never lead with your cheapest product. Start a medium (better) quality shirt, or front and back print or 15 oz. mug. This way if you need to lower the price, you can sell a reduced feature item.Have wiggle room. If you have to make a min of $500 on this deal, don't offer a price where you make $500 right away. Start with a $600 profit or a $700-800 profit, so you can negotiate if neededNever take the first 'I'll think about it'. If they have to think about it, just politely ask them what they are considering or what concerns they have. They may have a concern that you can answer right awayBe confident. Be sincere. Be Honest. The most successful sales people just work hard, and take time to learn the craft. Just like anything else there are little things you can do to help get more deals handed to you!

There is a new trend going around. You probably have come across it and have heard about it. It's a new way of parenting, it's called gentle parenting. Some also call it positive parenting, respectful parenting or raising resilient kids. This is a very different approach of parenting from the traditional way most of us were raised. If you are like me and you were raised with conservative Christian parents, you probably experienced spanking, threats and punishments. The thing was, that was the only way to raise kids back then. Chances are, your parents like mine, had no idea there was another way. In today's podcast episode, I had the honor of interviewing Wendy. Wendy Snyder is a Positive Parenting educator, family life coach & advocate. She is certified in Redirecting Children's Behavior & The Joy of Parenting Program. Wendy founded her online business, Fresh Start Family, so that she could spread the message of positive parenting across the world.

This episode of the Live Better Seller Better Podcast features Hana Elliot, Vice President of Revenue at Vendition. The cost of half-baked onboarding is reflected in lost potential revenue. Leaders must then realize that spending time to teach SDRs the fundamentals is more than just another box to tick.Rather, it is a commitment. Hana shares their best practices that have helped thousands of sales professionals sell better. Onboarding imparts your culture but it should also include some professionalism basics as a good number of SDRs are actually fresh out of college. HIGHLIGHTSCompanies need to commit time to onboard properlyCoach remotely with a buddy system for new SDRsOnboarding program: Teach the basics and use metrics The balance between educating, building confidence, and ramping quotaRemember that SDRs are human too QUOTESHana: "I think it's a worthwhile exercise to look at the pipeline or revenue impact of not having a fully-ramped SDR in seat because that's what's going to help you prioritize your time. It's too easy to get caught up in the daily whirlwind... and say I'm too busy."Hana: "Having more experienced AEs or some of your senior SDRs who have done it and are showing great results, have them listen in and shadow and give their feedback. Chances are, if you've been coaching them all along, they'll also know your mentality and be able to pass that along."Hana: "I'm not a second week, throw somebody on the phone. That's not my approach or preference. But you have to hit it hard at the beginning. That's where you can take advantage of your mentors, of your buddies, that's where you can do a lot of group online at the same time cohort writing workshops."Hana: "Being ready is so subjective. But are there assessments that you can build in at checkpoints and milestones throughout their onboarding process to determine are they actually ready? Make sure you know what you're looking for. Can they do X, Y, and Z on a cold call practice with you?" You can find out more about Hana in the links below:LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/hanaelliott/Website: https://vendition.com/
