Remember how excited you were when you first launched your business? You knew you had a gift to offer the world? and the universe was telling you that your message needed to be heard. Nothing has changed. If you have a message to deliver it means there are people who are meant to hear it! If you don't offer yourself with complete confidence and conviction, you minimize yourself, your services and your business. You are robbing people of creating a better life. You are limiting your potential and the experience of the services you provide and of being around you ? not a small thing.

Book Yourself Solid, Key Number 1: Know Why People Buy What You're Selling Since it's super normal to feel like marketing or "talking yourself up" cheapens the integrity of your work, I have a simple solution? stop talking about what you do. The secret is to know what your clients want. So? every second of every day focus on clear, specific, and detailed solutions, benefits and advantages that appeal to your potential clients. Because people aren't buying what you do the science, technique or technical name that you use doesn't matter in the slightest! Who cares what you call yourself?!

The fancy diplomas on the wall aren't getting you more clients. Clients will come to you, however, when you speak with them about their problems and needs. Start by identifying their urgent needs and compelling desires and then offer them an invest-able opportunity and you'll be booked solid in no time.

WRITTEN EXERCISE:

Develop a list that starts to identify what your clients are actually buying when they are buying your services.

What are your clients' urgent needs? (What problems do they need to solve?)

1. __________________________________________________________

2. __________________________________________________________

3. __________________________________________________________

What are your clients' compelling desires? (What are they working toward?)

1. __________________________________________________________

2. __________________________________________________________

3. __________________________________________________________

What invest-able opportunities do you offer your clients? (What are the specific and quantifiable benefits?)

1. __________________________________________________________

2. __________________________________________________________

3. __________________________________________________________

Now, every time you communicate in person, through writing, on the internet, in advertisements, on the phone, etc? articulate and re-articulate these urgent needs and compelling desires. Your potential clients will connect with you immediately. Most importantly, they'll feel understand and they'll be interested in learning more about the invest-able opportunities you offer.

Stayed tuned for Key #2
