We all want to create a Signature Program or a package that builds our brand. Something that's so deliciously attractive to our right people that they can't help but say yes. But have you thought about how your programs and packages actually deliver on your promises? Do you understand the true emotional benefits of what your clients achieve when they put your program to use?

Join us for this month's FREE mini-workshop and we'll look at how to get started creating a program or package that works for both you and your clients.

NOTE: This is a ZERO sales pitch event and is offered as a taste of the deeper learning and coaching that's available via my Digital Dining Room program (http://digitaldiningroom.com). While this event is free to attend, only DDR members have access to the recording. You must attend live to get access to this workshop.
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Tea Silvestre. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

Do you have enough time in the day to accomplish all your marketing tasks? If you're like most of us, the answer is no.

That's where systems come in. If you haven't yet established systems in your business to help facilitate and automate repetitive tasks, this is a workshop you won't want to miss.

Join us for this special 1-hour workshop with special guest, Susanna Maida and learn how to make your sales conversations feel more like a coaching session than something that requires overcoming objections and "closing" no matter what.

We'll discuss...
+ Why learning how to lead consistently successful enrolling conversations is absolutely crucial to the long-term success and viability of your business, and to the big impact you want to make in the world

+ Opening your heart to selling by  germinating the four seeds of sacred selling

+ Selling as an act of service

+ Selling as a way to cultivate fruitful relationships

+ Selling as an opportunity to grow yourself personally and spiritually

+ Selling as a force for personal and collective healing

+ How to lead an enrolling conversation that opens a field of possibility for the right person to say yes to themselves by way of working with you

About our Guest:
Susanna Maida, Ph.D., is a wild woman alchemist and contemporary shaman. She mentors visionaries who care deeply about the future of our world, helping them create the soul-satisfying sense of alignment that comes from growing financially flourishing, world-changing businesses doing their great work. It’s part of her bigger mission to restore the sacred to how we do business so that conscious business can become a force for good in our world.

One of Susanna’s many gifts is helping transformative entrepreneurs embrace selling as an act of service, so you can become artful at enrolling clients into working with you, in a high integrity way your heart can feel good about.

NOTE: There will be ZERO sales pitches in this webinar. Come and learn from someone who knows how to grow a big-hearted business.

Reminder! If you're challenged by email marketing and would like to get a fresh perspective on this important topic, please join me and special guest, +Mark Silver today. (100% teaching webinar/Zero sales pitches)
 
Communicating by email with your audience can be overwhelming or scary. Join me and my special Guest, Mark Silver as we show you how it can feel natural and beautiful, and still be effective for your business.

Despite the considerable success of both social media and in-person networking, email remains a really intimate, effective form of communication.

Over 95% of Heart of Business sales come directly from emails they send to their readers, and my stats are close to 75%.

Mark Silver's been writing an email newsletter and working with clients on all aspects of business development since 1999, over 16 years, and in that time he and the rest of the Heart of Business team, have taught thousands of people all over the globe about marketing with heart, including by email.

Mark's not going to teach the latest fad/cutting edge strategy, but heart-centered understandings of how people communicate and build trust that translates into actions you can take while still completely feeling like yourself.

Our time together will be a combination of Mark sharing principles and best practices he's learned as well as answering questions and direct coaching with you.

Be sure to mark your calendar. You won't want to miss this.

Once there was a solo biz owner who despised traditional marketing and sales. She hated the ick-factor of mainstream internet marketing and was uber-frustrated with all the focus on epic things and "crushing it" online.

But she also knew she needed to do something if she was ever going to make her business grow and sustain itself (and her).
One day, she heard about a new approach that focused on the importance of relationships and sharing stories.

She did a bit of poking around and learned that this particular method also championed her unique needs, talents, and resources. There were no "shoulds," "blueprints," or "roadmaps" to follow. And she wouldn't have to make herself crazy doing ALL THE THINGS.

This excited her, and she longed to put this method to work.

Luckily, there was a 2-day workshop scheduled in the next month: The Small Biz Storytelling Soirée.

The event promised to teach her a simple framework she could use to build her own beautiful and creative (and totally doable) marketing plan.

"I see it's happening in Portland, and that I can either attend live in-person or watch via the Internet," she said. And so she registered.

Immediately, she was introduced to other attendees via a private Facebook group. She got to network and get to know the others and hear about their lives and businesses. She felt seen, heard, and cared for. And she knew this would be a special turning point in her business...

Would you like to join her? We've saved you a seat: http://bit.ly/soireepdx

I hosted an intimate business conference at Opal 28 this past weekend (20ish people) and everyone LOVED the space. We had workshops, yoga stretches and even cooked and ate dinner together. It was fabulous having full run of the place with some minimal supervision from the staff. Margot and her team were fabulous to work with and I'll definitely be back again next year.

Every time I go here the food is always hot and fresh. The only thing that keeps me from giving them 5 stars is that they're often so busy, that you have to wait a bit longer than you might like to.

Came here for a biz meeting and had breakfast: the salmon omelet (fluffier than I expected!) with spinach and feta. Raspberry compote (made in-house) on buttered wheat toast. Ordered an Americano to go with. Every single thing was absolutely delish. Our waitress was extremely helpful and friendly, too. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because I've only been there once. Plus, we all have room for improvement somewhere, right?

Great atmosphere and loved my Kale Caesar Salad. I didn't get to taste any of the yummy pork offerings tho due to hiccup with my gall bladder, but my dining buddies raved about theirs. Definitely going back when I feel better.
