Relationship building for business success (taking the fear out of sales):
Does selling leave you shaking in your boots? You’re not alone. In fact, most entrepreneurs have some worries when it comes to selling… they are worried about seeming too pushy, about communicating effectively, about being rejected. It’s understandable. But you can get past it and thrive in your customer relationships… This workshop will help you get past your fears and develop lasting customer connections that keep them coming back.
