Want to know the fastest and most unexpected way to increase your revenue and client retention? Clear boundaries.
 
People pleasers often think someone will like them more if they do more, never say no and go above and beyond. 
 
However, if you don’t let someone know what you’re doing is above and beyond then it simply becomes what’s expected and you quickly become burnt out. 
 
Then you can’t keep up that level of performance and the client leaves because quality declines (when in reality they just had mind-blowing quality before and had no idea). 
 
Listen in to discover how to:
👉Effectively set boundaries from the start that lays the groundwork for a successful relationship that you retain long-term before it even starts 
👉 Communicate crucial elements when you’re setting boundaries that give clients the context to be consistently impressed with your work
👉Kindly establish a boundary that paves the way to upsells and retention when a client asks for something out of scope 
👉 Avoiding common traps people pleasers fall into that suck up time and money in the  name of “potential” 
 
Don't make a deal based on potential. Make a deal based on what is in front of your face, the situation that you're in now. - Aleasha Bahr

The mainstream way of handling objections is wildly ineffective. 
 
It’s convincing energy and it’s not convincing anyone. 
 
Instead, it ends up making the prospect feel dismissed and invalidated instead of seen and heard. 
 
It’s important to understand that objections are NOT something personal. 
 
Objections are concerns and what do you do when someone you care about has a concern? You explore it with them.
 
This approach is extremely powerful in a sales conversation. 
 
If you're ready to ditch the old, pushy sales tactics and embrace genuine, curiosity-driven conversations leading to long-term client relationships, then this is for you. 
 
Because only good sh*t happens when you approach objections with curiosity, not coercion. 
Are you in? 
 
Listen to discover:
Understanding the emotions around objections and how to manage them for success
The completely natural fears prospects experience before investment and how to address them in a collaborative way
The approach to objections that not only wipes out the need for pushing but also steers the conversation toward a place of relief and trust.
Finding the ROOT of the resistance for more effective conversations
Approaching objections as an opportunity to also understand if a client is a good fit for YOU (no nightmare clients policy!)
 
“You want to treat your clients better than you treat your prospects, and you want to treat your prospects like they're going to be your client for a really long time.” - Aleasha Bahr

Does it feel like your sales conversations are simply falling flat? 
You feel like you’re saying all the right things but you’re not seeing your prospect’s face light up with the telltale sign of clarity and excitement (both required to sign up with you).

Similar to using too many buzzwords, if you’re talking over someone’s head they’re not going to buy what you’re selling because they don’t understand it. 
And a confused mind says no.
