Stories that Sell: Three Keys to Gain Confidence, Inspire Action, and Sell More with Powerful Stories

Location: Willow Park Golf & Country Club
Address: 639 Willow Park Drive S.E.
Time: 11:30 AM (doors open at 11:00 AM)

Most entrepreneurs know that we need good stories for business: client testimonials, speaker biographies, and sales pitches are all stories. We fear the poorly-told story, the glazed look when we tell people what we do at networking events. We long to captivate people with what we have to say, and we run from presentations that bore us. At some level, we know that it’s all about the story.
What most entrepreneurs do NOT know is how to tap into the secret power of story to connect with their ideal clients.

Cost: $47.00
