Hi, My name is Mark Shepard and I’m a former “sales phobic” who couldn’t sell steak to a starving man!
I’m a singer/songwriter who not only had trouble performing live (a sales situation if ever there was one), but I had all these songs and a bunch of CD’s that I couldn’t give away much less sell for actual money.
It’s a long story so I won’t bore you with the details, but suffice it to say eventually I discovered Neuro Linguistic Programming, or NLP. I call it Modern Jedi Mind Mastery.
In a very short time I was no longer “sales shy”. In fact I started helping other sales shy professionals clear their fear, anxiety, phobia, panic, stage fright or performance anxiety…whatever you want to call it. I was able to help people rapidly change their internal programming so that they could relax and be themselves. I also helped them to see themselves as “trusted advisors”.
The result is that the majority of them went on to double and even quadruple their income.
So this blog is part of my ongoing effort to share with as many sales shy professionals as possible that it is possible to be persuasive without being pushy and influential without being manipulative. Of course if you are already a seasoned sales professional you may learn a thing or two as well. The original course was entitled “The Reluctant Sales Person” the new updeated version coming soon will simply be called: “The Sales Course.”
Thanks for checking out the site and considering choosing the course for your own benefit or for your sales team.
