Ego Advancement Mitch Taylor Taylored SalesEgo and Advancement

Are you letting your ego get in the way of advancing in your DJ career or business?
Are you struggling in a certain area of your business?  Every professional that I know from athletes to business moguls have had a coach or mentor at some point in their life who has helped them get to a certain goal.  Our industry is permeated with people who feel they don’t need coaching and I hope, dear reader, that you are not one of them. Maybe you’re at a crossroads in your business and this will be the catalyst to help you take action.  

Recently I began providing a series of workshops for DJs to help them improve their sales skills.  A fellow DJ had posted in a online Facebook group that he was having trouble in sales. I gave him a couple of suggestions and then mentioned my upcoming workshop which was happening within 2 hours of where he lives.  At first the DJ was VERY defensive about his needing help. I said to him on the thread that I was just trying to help him and presented him an opportunity to get one on one coaching from a Jeffrey Gitomer trained coach.  The conversation began going back to why he should take a workshop and he just wanted free help on the net. I told him that if he decided to take the workshop and felt he didn’t get his monies worth that I would refund his money after the workshop no questions asked  and that I was there anytime he needed if he wanted to reach out. About two to three weeks later he signed up for my workshop. We’ll continue what happened next next week.
