I meet so many clever people who say they hate selling. Selling is seen as something icky and awful and awkward. It is often thought of as a process where you are forcing something onto someone against their will. A process of manipulation where you are ‘making someone buy something’.

I have always liked the idea of selling being an opportunity. Of offering someone something. An opportunity or an experience.

One of the things that people miss about sales is that you are really only selling yourself. People buy off people. When you are selling your own products and services, it is even more important to be aware of how you show up.

Your energy will introduce you before you do. People will smell desperation. They will feel your vibe. It’s vital that you are aware of this and that you turn up turned on!

Matt and I have just sent our new book “Commercially Smart” for its final edit. The book is written for clever people who want to be better. People who need help to become commercially smart.

Your decision to be part of the Thought Leaders Foundation Program is a decision to be committed. Committed to learning the curriculum in less than six months.

Our Foundation Program is a 6 month program where you learn our curriculum. As well as our extensive curriculum full of videos, exercises, worksheets, we provide live weekly coaching, 12 curated weekly work plans and a community of people on a similar path to you. The cost of our Foundation Program is a one off payment of $1500 AUD (plus GST for Australian residents only). We also offer this in three instalments of $500 AUD. The Foundation Program is a prerequisite to join Thought Leaders Business School. You are able to join TLBS as soon as you have completed the curriculum.

Most people complete the curriculum in 12 weeks. Because everyone’s circumstances are different we offer you 6 months to learn. Business School is not for everyone and there is no pressure to join. You are free to leave the Foundation Program at anytime.
