How to Consistently Close Sales: It's More than a Sales Pitch | with Neal Benedict

Melanie Johnson and Jenn Foster interview expert Neal Benedict for tips and tricks about sales, marketing, and building high-performance sales organizations. Learn how to get more consistent sales with his unique module.

What You'll Learn in this Episode:

  • The importance of building the processes and systems that are embedded into your organization, so that when you do need to go find new salespeople, you're not overly reliant on finding that diamond but, you're more reliant upon finding the right people for your organization that can fit into a structure that you've already built.
  • The difference between you and your competition for an example is really the difference between an inch. There's usually not a really wide gap between you and the people competing with you. So, when you talk about differentiation from a standpoint of you versus your competitors, you have to remember that it's a very small margin of differentiation that you go after.
  • Sales is a math and numbers game and that's why processes are really important.
  • Oftentimes it takes many contacts in order to get a client's trust built in this environment.
  • Learn how to make sure you're easy to do business with and that you're there when the client is ultimately ready to make that decision.
  • Make sure you have value messaging that your potential customers know the benefits and the value of your company and your services.
  • Objections aren't always a negative thing. Particularly, if they're later in the sales cycle objections tend to be a good buying signal because people are thinking through their purchase decision. People buy emotionally and then try to justify it with logic.
  • How to overcome objections from potential buyers:
    • The first thing you want to do understand it, not handle it.
    • Remember your value and why you stand apart as the specific person that will help them with their individual needs.
    • Help the client through a process of discovery. Discover what it is that they really need, and know that clients tend not to object to a discovery that they've gone through themselves.
    • Have systems in place, to begin with, because most of the objections can be covered and cleared up before they come up later on.
  • Critical to the sales process: Asking a lot of questions and active listening.

About Neal:

Neal helps business owners and sales leaders build high-performance sales organizations. He has a passion for helping small business. He also has significant global experience with an emphasis on Asia and with competence in China. Developing an effective sales team is challenging. Finding a sales manager to lead that team even more so. When the average tenure of an experienced VP of sales is less than 2 years and a surprising number of those sales managers fail to hit their goals, it’s clear that most companies need to take a different approach to sales leadership. That’s where Neal comes in. Neal and his team are experienced VPs of sales that function as outsourced (fractional) sales leaders. They assess, design and implement the key practices and tools (along with the people) that all sales organizations need in order to run efficiently and produce the best results. Neal helps companies grow quickly, increase profitability and build an effective sales discipline that is core to that company and its clients.

SellerCon 2019 with Robert Kiyosaki | How To Get Rich

Melanie Johnson and Jenn Foster review tips from expert Robert Kiyosaki, during SellerCon 2019, about becoming rich. Learn about cash flow quadrants, taxes, selling toward your audience, and making a passive income.

Best known as the author of Rich Dad Poor Dad-the #1 personal finance book of all time—Robert Kiyosaki has challenged and changed the way tens of millions of people around the world think about money. He is an entrepreneur, educator, and investor who believes that each of us has the power to makes changes in our lives, take control of our financial future, and live the rich life we deserve.

What You'll Learn in this Episode:

  • Learn how to create recurring passive income. Even kids can learn these strategies from playing Monopoly. You want to get enough passive income that it takes care of all your regular monthly expenses.
  • The Cash Flow quadrants:
    • Top left corner is "E", which is the employee.
    • Underneath "E" you have the "S", which is self-employed. So the left bottom quadrant is self-employed, but what happens is some of those self-employed people feel like they're a business owner, but they're not because all they've really done is create a job for themselves, and that's why they're on the left-hand side of the quadrant.
    • So on the right-hand side, on the top right, we have "B" the business owner.
    • The bottom right is the "I", investor. You want to be on the business owner and investor side because the that is were the reoccurring income is coming in.
  • A big difference between those two sides of those quadrants, especially when you're a business owner, and you're an investor, you get a lot more tax breaks. So the tax law is written for capitalism (check out last weeks Podcast for more depth into this concept), so you get a lot of tax breaks because the United States is built towards building businesses.
  • Where do you put your money for it to go to work? Where's the first place you want it to go to work? Robert suggests that the best place to put your money is into real estate and rental properties
  • If you want to sell something on Amazon, you don't start with what product you want to sell. You actually start with the audience.
  • Make sure you're in the best tax bracket!

SellerCon 2019 with Founder of Whole Foods, John Mackey | Business and Capitalism

Melanie Johnson and Jenn Foster review tips from expert John Mackey, during SellerCon 2019, about growing a successful business and aligning your values and passions. Let's take a deeper look into business and capitalism.

John Mackey, co-founder and CEO of Whole Foods Market, has led the natural and organic grocer to a $13 billion Fortune 500 company. With more than 370 stores and 80,000 Team Members in three countries, the company has been named by Fortune magazine as a “Best Company to Work For” for 16 consecutive years and the Number One Most Admired Food and Drug Store Company in the World in 2012.

What You'll Learn in this Episode:

  • Even the founder of Whole Foods went ups and downs, to a point where he thought he would lose his whole business. So, never give up even if things seem bad!
  • You don't have to reinvent the wheel. When you're speaking on stage, it should be the content from your book, it could even just be the exact layout of your book with the different points, or the first three chapters or whatever it is to get it across. Use your book as a call to action at the end of your talk!
  • Pick the product or the platform that you're the most passionate about and that you get the biggest return on investment for and that's what you need to be writing about.
  • Everyone should get value through the whole process and grow and feel good about and feel appreciated. Look at your business, and everyone that you touch should be able to feel your culture and get value from it.
  • Because of capitalism, we are ending poverty on Earth.
  • Come up with your core values, and the societal mission for your company. So, what are the core values? What is your mission for society?  Then, that needs to spread out to everything that you do.

SellerCon 2019 with Dave Asprey | Feel Bulletproof

Melanie Johnson and Jenn Foster review tips from expert Dave Asprey, during SellerCon 2019,  about his story, healthy habits, and how to feel bulletproof.

In 2004, Dave Asprey — Bulletproof founder, CEO and Father of Biohacking — was on a trek in Tibet, and at -10 degrees Fahrenheit, his energy was plummeting. He staggered into a guest house, where a local handed him a creamy cup of yak butter tea.

That tea changed his life. It rejuvenated his mind and body, and the biohacker in him wanted to understand why the tea made him feel so good. So, he got to work.

Bulletproof is built on the science that helped Dave lose 100 pounds and transform his life, going from brain fog and fatigue to laser-sharp focus and abundant energy. Bulletproof is Dave’s story. It’s your story, too.

Bulletproof products are backed by the latest research, ancient knowledge from Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine and a steadfast commitment to quality — oh, and plenty of Bulletproof Coffee.

Have More Energy, Have Clarity, and Sleep Better With James Swanwick

Melanie Johnson speaks with James Swanwick about how to have more energy and clarity in your business. 

 There are lights on our screens that we stare into at nighttime after the sun is long gone. Blue light is in your cell phone, TV screen, computer, bathroom and kitchen lights, alarm clock - almost everywhere. When we stare at these screens - as you may be doing now - it tricks our bodies into thinking it’s still daytime. This means we don’t produce as much melatonin. Which means we have trouble falling asleep, toss and turn in the night, and wake up feeling tired.

The Challenges Leaders Face As Millennials Dominate The Workplace with Marc Schwartz

Jenn Foster and Melanie Johnson speak with Marc Schwartz about his book Power Shift. Power Shift gets right to the core of performance issues and lays bare the challenges leaders will face as Generation X and Millennials dominate the workplace - creating a power shift like no modern business has ever experienced.

Consistently low engagement numbers, the increased influence of Millennials in the workplace and clinging to outdated leadership models is creating increased levels of unproductive stress within most companies. And as stress increases, production, effectiveness and even retention go down. Too many companies today are like the lobster in the pot where the heat is being turned up so gradually that the lobster never struggles to survive, and never knows that it’s about to lose its life and end up on someone’s dinner plate. Like all living things, the longevity of an organization depends on its overall health and, just as with all living organisms, factors for achieving and maintaining health can be measured, and if not ideal, can be adjusted with the right interventions. For example, pH balance is critical in almost all living organisms. In humans, the range is 7.35 to 7.45. Anything outside that range results in illness and, if not corrected, death.

Raising Your Son to Be an Executive With True Tamplin

Jenn Foster and Melanie Johnson speak with True Tamplin about his book Raising an Executive: Igniting Your Son’s Inner Executive To Outperform His Peers and Continue Your Legacy.


At age 13, True’s father, Ken Tamplin was offered to be the lead singer for Journey. Despite desperately needing the money, the 5-year touring contract was too great a sacrifice. He turned the offer down, and now True has checked every box an executive would want for his son: giving his grad speech, covering The Daily Pilot, garnering a full-ride to his school of choice, maintaining Suma Cum Laude 4.0 GPA, marrying the girl of his dreams, running a successful Analytics and Online Marketing company, and writing an Amazon #1 Bestseller, all by the age of 22.

True is utterly convinced that none of his early successes would have come had his father accepted the Journey contract.

Now True’s story has become his plea to fight for executives to spend more time with their sons. True has gone on to become a CEO coach and has created the Raising An Executive mentorship program for their sons to one day outdo their fathers.

Amber Dawn Powell of Silver Moon Restoratives

Several years ago, Amber did a head dive thru a windshield from the backseat of a car in a 50 mph head-on collision. Throughout her healing process, she didn’t end up needing the skin graft as planned because of an oil that was brought to her by her cousin. She became fascinated with essential oils, herbs, and natural healing. Now, here she is sharing her story and her serum that was created based off of that experience and all the knowledge she has acquired since.

Heal and Live a More Fulfilling Life with Emily Cohen

Heal your intergenerational trauma and live a more fulfilling and empowered life!

Emily Cohen, author of From Generation to Generation: Healing Intergenerational Trauma Through Storytelling, is interviewed by Jenn and Melanie. In her book, Emily Wanderer Cohen connects the dots between her behaviors and choices and her mother’s Holocaust experiences. In a series of vivid, emotional—and sometimes gut-wrenching—stories, she illustrates how the Holocaust continues to have an impact on current and future generations. Plus, the prompts at the end of each chapter enable you to explore your own intergenerational trauma and begin your healing journey.

Her book will help you:

•Understand how the Holocaust and other trauma survivors transmit their trauma to their children and grandchildren
•Recognize that you’re not alone in your emotions and feelings
•Uncover your own intergenerational trauma and specific triggers
•Stop the cycle of intergenerational trauma in your family
•Replace anger and resentment with forgiveness—and begin the healing process

Part memoir and part self-discovery, if you’re a second-generation (2G) or third-generation (3G) Holocaust survivor—or you’re experiencing the intergenerational trauma of any kind—and you’re ready to heal from that trauma, you need to read this book.

Emily Wanderer Cohen is the daughter and granddaughter of Holocaust survivors. Ever since the day she came home from religious school asking her mother about the Holocaust, Emily heard her mother's stories of incarceration in and escape from concentration camp as well as eventual immigration to the United States. Her mother also spoke to schoolchildren and other audiences about her personal Holocaust experiences, helping to ensure that this horrific event would never be forgotten. Emily now works with multiple generations of Holocaust survivors to understand and heal their transmitted trauma through writing. She also speaks to Jewish and other organizations about her mother's history as well as how her mother's trauma affected her as a second-generation (2G) Holocaust survivor.

JMW was born in Texas. The son of a rodeo cowboy and businessman. He joined the Marine Corps during the Vietnam war and served in a military police unit. He followed that line of work after the military, serving as a policeman. Through many trials, he was converted to Christianity and attended a seminary where his faith in Christ was solidified.

His book "Color of Fire" is the unforgettable truth of repentance, forgiveness, regret and the battle for survival against all odds. A true page-turner that brings truth to fiction and hope for a better world.

Positive Programming in Business and Life's Work - Jason Sisneros

Are you struggling with a life of negative programming? Switch your mindset to Positive programming. Jenn Foster and Melanie Johnson interview Jason Sisneros. Jason has had an intriguing rise to the top of his profession. He has become an extremely relevant force in the field of long-term change and next level attainment. He did so, not through a traditional education, but through what he calls a Ph.D. in street smarts (poor, hungry and determined). Raised in an environment of drugs, abuse, and a lack mentality, Jason traveled a road most of us only read about. From several broken noses, being kidnapped, witnessing family members held at gunpoint to ultimately watching the person responsible for all of this, his adoptive father, go to prison for the attempted murder of his mother and himself; he developed a unique view of the world. 

Jason’s career in the field of motivation, sales, influence, radical life extension, and persuasion began with the most prestigious organization in the industry, the Anthony Robbins Companies. Jason shot through the ranks, working as one of Tony’s Peak performance consultants. Jason is now one of the most sought out speakers on the circuit today! He has built an amazing reputation in the arena of mega speakers and can be seen throughout the nation as a keynote speaker at seminars, conventions, retreats, workshops and corporate training.

Elite Expert Insider Podcast Interview with Mike Magana. Melanie Johnson and Jenn Foster interview Mike Magana about finding your Spiritual Journey. What do stars, galaxies, the solar system and our entire universe say about the existence of a creator? Is it more than mere coincidence that human life is born into this world?

These questions and many more are addressed in a compelling manner as “Angelo” is encouraged to embark on his own personal journey in search of the profound reason for life and his own existence. Realizing that not answering the door when death knocks is not an option, Angelo must wrestle with understanding his personal relevancy and how that impacts his connection with others as well as the creator.
