“Sometimes the situation is only a problem because it is looked at in a certain way. Looked at in another way, the right course of action may be so obvious that the problem no longer exists.” --Edward de Bono

1) Check out Theresa’s speaking topics, including:

Turn Conversations Into Clients: How to talk to people about what you do so that they want to know more. -You’ve heard it said that you’re only six degrees of separation from anyone, and you never know who the person you’re speaking to has connections with. If you don’t know how to talk about who you are and what you have to offer, it will be impossible to find that perfect client that needs exactly the service you provide. Since you’re going to have conversations every single day, put yourself ahead of the rest and turn everyday conversations into engaging, curiosity–creating, mini promos of yourself that won’t come across as self-serving or pushy. It’s a skill that will serve you for your entire life…no matter what the future holds for you.

Stop Being Intimidated to Talk About Your Fees & Eliminate Client’s Price ResistanceAre you (or your potential clients) uncomfortable with your fees? How are you going to become the trusted advisor, the credible authority or likeable expert in your field with a waiting list of clients seeking out your help and expertise if you can’t get past the Price Resistance Factor? How are you supposed to be all that you’re meant to be if you can’t attract clients and get them to part with their hard-earned cash in order to benefit from your services? Hmmm. Good Question. Theresa will reveal some tips and techniques and mindsets that will make it easier for you to talk about your fees and what you charge, and will help eliminate potential client’s price resistance. Some of the questions we’ll answer include:

What is the key thing you must do if you’re intimidated to talk about your prices?

What are the top two things that are absolutely necessary to eliminate your potential client’s price resistance?

What is the threshold that people must cross in order to be willing to spend money for your service?

What does the Insurance Industry do that you should copy?

Why do we de-value our service?

What’s pie got to do with it? And, by the way, who wants a piece of it?

What is the Income vs Time Equation/Concept?

By the end of the presentation, you’ll be re-energized and armed with a fresh perspective on pricing and price resistance so that you can quote your fees confidently and eliminate forever the hollow, enthusiasm-crushing sound of “…that’s too much” echoing from the mouths of your potential clients.

Junk Food Clients: What are they and what do we do with them? --(Talk or Workshop Format) Do you find yourself putting up with rude, pushy or needy clients that zap your energy just so that you can make enough money to pay the bills? Discover the benefits to removing the energy zappers so that you can fill their place with inspirational and fun clients. In the workshop format, you’ll work through your client list to identify your “Junk Food Clients” and your “Healthy Fit Clients” in order to determine for yourself what kinds of people energize you and what kinds of clients drain you. We’ll also discuss techniques for removing the JFC from your practice with respect and a minimal amount of drama.

Draw Clients That Energize You & Feed Your Passions: – Do you find yourself putting up with a handful of rude, pushy or needy clients that zap your energy just so that you can make enough money to pay the bills? Beyond just getting new clients and making more money, you want to fill your service business with “ideal” and “fun” clients… plenty of them… customers that energize and re-invigorate your passions and inspire you to do your best work and remind you of the reasons you started doing what you do in the first place.

The Process of Progress: Create The Exact Life You Want – We all have changes that we’d like to make in our lives. With work and/or school and/or family responsibilities we each have the equivalent of about 3 or 4 full-time jobs. Maybe you want to go back to school and graduate with honors. Or maybe you want to stop smoking, or revitalize your business, or lose some weight, or get more involved in community activities, or start living a healthier, more well-balanced and successful life. Here’s a step by step process to make significant progress in your life, regardless of what kind of change you want to see.

Stress Reduction for Small Business Owners: Boundaries– Nearly everyone has the boundary “You can’t hit me,” and in general, we are willing to enforce that limit. But not everyone understands how to put in place other boundaries, and consequently they find themselves being taken advantage of or getting stepped on by the people surrounding them. Everyone deserves to be treated respectfully and have their boundaries honored, whether by friends and family, or co-workers and customers. We teach people how to treat us by what we let them do to us and the boundaries that we are willing to enforce, and what things that we let slide. Learn a simple five step process to eliminate the stress and frustration you feel when people continue to step all over you while standing up for yourself and at the same time, inviting people to interact with you on the level of mutually respectful behavior.

Law of the Sees – The Foundation of Your Business – Are you feeling like your business is water-logged or grounded? Lift your business to ride its own wave of success, regardless of what the local currents are dictating. Of the more than 16 areas of business that are imperative for a successful entrepreneur to master – or anyone in a service business for that matter, Theresa reveals the key 4 (she calls them the “Law of the Sees”) that will put you on the road to doubling, tripling or even quadrupling your income in the next 12 months.

Survive or Thrive? Four things you need to master to catapult your biz beyond survival mode into “Beyond The Sky” Success Mode Will your business merely survive or will it thrive this next twelve months? Will you be the victim this year? Or the victor? How can you control the outcome? If you’re struggling to find the business breakthrough that will finally drop success into your lap, if you’re looking for a simple formula to put your business on the map, and grow your income to the place beyond just “…paying the bills,” if you want to fill your business with ideal clients that energize you and inspire you to do your best work, here’s the four stage plan to catalyze you and your business to the next level…or even the level after that…or even past “Sky’s The Limit” Success to “Beyond The Sky” Success Mode. It’s up to you…

Credibility 101 For Business Owners: – You have your business cards and your certifications/diplomas. But beyond that, what are the basic requirements that customers expect the businesses that they work with to have in place? Follow the checklist to see what you’re missing and need to work on, and what things you already have taken care of that you can pat yourself on the back for.

How Do You Turn A Stranger Into A Customer For Life? -- What business owner doesn’t need more clients? We are all used to the game of going out, marketing, advertising, promoting in the on-going, never-ending effort of getting new clients because clients are the lifeblood of our business. They need to be literally flowing through our business like blood through our bodies. But what if we flipped that thinking over onto its hind-end and decided that instead of working to draw more clients, we were going to now market to attract new Friends for Life? Instead of a client which we look at as having a short life span (one, maybe a few transactions on average)…what would you do differently if you were looking for them to be a Friend for Life?

7 Keys To Success In Business & In Life – What are the 7 keys to success? If you master these seven things, you will be well on your way to accomplishing whatever it is that you’d like to achieve, not only in your business, but in any other arena of life.

The Cornerstone of Success or How To Get Your Head Around The “I’ll See It When I Believe It” ConceptYou want more out of your life, out of your business. But after years, or maybe even decades of not getting it, a lot of us resign ourselves to living a less than ideal life. We console ourselves with the refrain “I guess this is just how my life was meant to be.” Doesn’t it feel like you’re always battling your very own self? How are you supposed to reconcile these two inner voices and they’re opposing messages? Positive vs Negative. Success vs Failure. Courage vs Fear. Belief vs Doubt. Can vs Can’t. Theresa shares her insights on how to understand and coordinate your internal resources so that you’re not always in the midst of a raging battle between your Can Not! and your Can To! selves. Based on her book “The Cornerstone of Success” by Theresa Whiteside
