Is Your Store Ready For Training?

I have been hired numerous times to perform training in stores that are not mentally or physically prepared for growth. Mentally, because their advisors think they are doing well enough and don’t see the growth potential in their position. Physically, because the shop is already full, or scheduled work is backed up for days.

Does your Website Convert Traffic into Leads?

It’s a well-known fact the best leads aren’t the ones that are bought, but those that convert on your website.

Change Yourself and Change Your Scene

Many people in life are in a scene they're unhappy with, whether it's at work, on a team they're part of, or at home. So often we take a passive approach and wait for the scene to change to our liking instead of actively changing what we can control - ourselves.
