  • The five pronged PROVEN strategy to approach buyers and get an order

  • What it takes to get an order PLUS you'll have the confidence and motivation to actually DO IT and enjoy the process!
  • What to say on the phone to a buyer and what NOT to say
  • What to do if buyers aren't getting back to you
