Be In The Moment

June 22, 2017 by Mitch Taylor
Be in the moment I went thru the McDonald's drive thru early this morning to get a mocha.  I'm greeted by the auto attendant in a cheerful voice saying " welcome to McDonald's would you like to try a hot mocha?".   I respond "Yes, can I have a large mocha please?" and the same voice comes back with "I'm sorry sir our mocha machine is broken".  I was a bit surprised but then again this is McDonalds we are talking about.   read more]

Six Ways To Create A Buying Atmosphere

June 20, 2017 by Mitch Taylor
One of my favorite Jeffrey Gitomer quotes is “People don't like to be sold but they love to buy.”  If that’s true, then we need to study specifically how to create a buying atmosphere.  Let’s dive right in and give you six ways to create a buying atmosphere in today’s post.  
  1. Use verbiage that is conversational.  Just the other day I was coaching a fellow DJ and his response to a client was really long and drawn out, with a lot more “I’s” and “me’s”.  It’s much better to be conve... [read more]

Product and Solution Focused

June 13, 2017 by Mitch Taylor
Windstar Cruising.  It was absolutely was one of the best vacation experiences of my life. My wife and I went on a ship that was literally one tenth the size of a ship that I used to work on, it was a yacht. The larger ships have everyone lining up in different places, except for a VIP experience to get you on board if you reach platinum status with them.  Windstar was different.  The level of customer service was so unique and different.  Instead of many people rolling into a ship, they had staged waiting areas for different sets of people.  However,...

Never Put All Of Your Eggs In One Basket

June 6, 2017 by Mitch Taylor
  I've shared a few personal stories here over the last few months and this article is going to be no different. If you’ve  ever heard me speak you’ve heard me talk about growing up in a log cabin in a small town in Ripley Maine, population about 450 people. What you don't know is that literally next door to that town is the town I went to high school, Dexter Maine, population around 3500.  Dexter Maine back then was known for one thing, Dexter Shoes. If you are maybe 30 something 40 something years old, you may have heard of Dexter Shoes. The company existed for over 30 ... [read more]

Do You Trust Me

June 1, 2017 by Mitch Taylor
Do you trust me? As I analyze my business over the course of the last decade of being at it full-time, I come back to one word and many clients.  Here's just one example of said clients.  My clients were Dick and Elga, a couple who fifty years ago that day tied the knot in a beautiful ceremony.  Dick is a wonderful man with Elga his wife telling me the reason they lasted for fifty years in marriage was that she never wanted to hear the words I told you so from her mother.  In Dick's words, "...

The Devil Is In The Details

May 30, 2017 by Mitch Taylor
Devil Is In The Details Mitch Taylor Taylored SalesA long time ago I was working in Metro Detroit performing at weddings. I had a client who had a Friday night reception, and they hired a horse drawn carriage to bring them from the ceremony site to the reception. At the time, I thought that was an awesome touch.  The problem was is they didn't factor in the fact that they'd be traveling through the Detroit traffic to get to the country club and therefore arriving an hour and a half late. This caused dinner to be an hour and a half late that evening and guests were eating their rolls at the tables firs... [read more]

Start.  Stop.  Continue.  Mitch Taylor Taylored SalesIt’s been said there are 1440 choices in a day, which correlates to how many minutes are in a day.  You don’t have to wait for the next day, the next week, the first of next month to make a change and make a difference.  Start with that next minute out of 1440 in the day.  Take stock of where you are in life and decide three things.  What am I going to start?  What am I going to stop?  What am I going to continue?  Write them down.  Put them on a mirror in your bathroom so it is the first thing you see when you wake up and the last thing you ...
