Share Your Heart Part 5

June 27, 2019 by Mitch Taylor
This week we finish off the R in HEART with Reality.  Maybe their REALITY is they need to be brought into these moments they are about to embark on, say at a wedding reception.  This is where you as a salesperson come in. You need to not only walk them through each moment and how you will handle it (basic), but how they will feel IN each moment, how together you can create an experience they and their guests will remember forever vs. what they see at every reception and finally what their memories will be like AFTER the event is over.  Show them the difference in REALITY with you vs. someone else and more often than not, y...

Share Your Heart Part 4

June 20, 2019 by Mitch Taylor
Last week we covered the "A" letter of the acronym H.E.A.R.T., with the “H” standing for Hugs, the “E” standing for Emotion, and the “A” standing for Attitude. We continue today with the final 2 letters of the acronym, Reality and Thoughtful and a final Thought. Reality Kenny Chesney said it best “Reality, yeah, sometimes life ain’t all that it’s cracked up to be.  So let’s take a chance and live this fantasy. ‘Cause everybody needs to break free from reality.”  OK so maybe I’m in a bit of the island spirit here right now but this is a truth in mundane, everyday life as well.  Reality can somet...

Share Your Heart Part 3

June 13, 2019 by Mitch Taylor
Attitude Your attitude can make or break the sale.  Period.  During my Creative Consultations seminar I showed a video of a young girl standing on a sink in her family bathroom shouting out her positive daily affirmations in the mirror about what she loved and liked.  Positive thoughts affect positive actions.  Your attitude will make or break not just the sale but relationships as a whole.  You can't let an extreme high or low moment of your day affect the rest of your hour, day, week, month or even year. It’s important that you approach each client the same way…even-keeled.  Think like a quarterback. Quarterback... [read more]

May 9, 2019 by Mitch Taylor
How interesting is it that you can have really poor or not the greatest customer service but yet brand loyalty will trump that?  Now maybe you are sitting here as a single-op reading this and saying “But Mitch...I’m not a brand...I’m just me!” You may think that but trust me...everything you do or say, or look or present represents yourself, your business and yes in fact your brand in someway.  We each are are own brand, whether we like it or not. How can you create brand loyalty in your business and how can that brand loyalty be above customer service? Brand loyalty can be above customer service by t... [read more]

How Are You Being Fed Part 1

April 16, 2019 by Mitch Taylor
How are you being fed? Now, when I say, How are you being fed? I'm not talking about, you know, breakfast, lunch and dinner. That's not what we're talking about here. We're talking about how are you being fed from the people, the places and the things that are around you? Do you surround yourself with people that say, Yes, I can do this?  Or do you surround yourself with people or influences that say, No, or bring negativity into your life. We've all had different upbringings in our life.  In fact some people think it’s ok to go back and blame their upbringings. They use it as an excuse for where they are at in life... [read more]

Being A Chameleon

April 2, 2019 by Mitch Taylor
This week's article is about being a chameleon.  Now, before you think I am talking about something fake, I'm not.  I'm talking about having the ability to adapt to your surroundings...changing your colors in order to fit your situation. I had a situation with a bride and groom in a sales call recently that reminded me of this.  We sat down and we talked about their day.   Literally within the first three minutes of our conversation the bride dropped a couple expletives.  Now some people may get offended by that but in my head I felt "that's okay".  Why?  Because it showed she felt comfortable with me and it kind of brok...
