It’s On Sale

Sale - the word of the white letters hanging on the ropes on a red background
Rainmaking – Black Friday Sale!

Happy Day After Thanksgiving to you and yours! This blog is posting on Black Friday.  Why do I have time to write a blog today?  Because I’m NOT one of the 137 million Americans who will begin their Christmas shopping – either in stores or online this weekend.  Yes, wholly 40% of Americans shop this weekend.

Kicking Off Another Webinar Series

As we edge closer to the end of 2016, some of you may already be thinking about setting your goals for 2017. And, if you’re not, maybe you should be!  In that spirit, we are once again preparing to deliver the three part “Jumpstart Your Rainmaking” webinar series, beginning December 7th.  If you’re a follower of this blog and my communications, you know that we discuss topics designed for professionals who need to sell their services. It’s tough to go out there and sell yourself every day! Jumpstart focuses on how to develop the skills to keep your pipeline filled and how to generate revenue.  Prior webinar participants have included CPAs, bookkeepers, attorneys, financial planners and even virtual administrative assistants.  We are offering the webinar series now to help you put together a plan prior to year-end so that you’ll be ready to go with it come January 1.  Won’t that feel good?

Why Take This Class?
