Petar Lackovic has always advocated getting to the place where you build your own unique way of selling. We spent time talking about whether this is still relevant and what to do RIGHT NOW to generate sales. He also shares his own secrets to selling and how to frame the conversation to suit the current situation and what lies ahead. No matter what business you’re in, predictable sales are still key to your survival and growth. But that’s exactly the problem at the moment: the predictability of sales is gone. So, what does one do? Here are a few of Petar Lackovic’s top pieces of advice that he shared during our conversation with him.
Telling an entire story without saying a word, requires a very special body-focused skill. That is the world that James Cruzen also inhabited while being an international swing-dance instructor. He developed a fascination with how we connect, communicate and direct each other non-verbally. James has subsequently turned those insights into leadership training that focuses on the intersection of influence and body language. James is a sought-after expert on body language and influence, and we’re thrilled to have had him as our guest to understand how to use body language in how we show up online.

It’s what brings meaning and purpose into our lives.’” Listen to this recording to learn more about true connection and how to find your “why”..

You have a reason for doing what you’re doing. It’s about the Bigger Conversation, a North Star, a Vision, a Big Why. It’s shaped by your past and informed by the future you want to create. It’s what pulls you forward and makes you stand out. But here’s the challenge: how do you share that story in an effective way that serves you and your business?

Video has become an inextricable part of how we do business. Really connecting with your audience takes some skill though. The key thing is this: to have a deep impact with video you need to know how to help people get the most from (and in) your presence.

And there’s no one better qualified to tell us about it than Dan Cordle, a talented photographer and on-screen acting teacher who also happens to be a film director and an actor. He knows the ins and outs of the craft and we’re super excited to have him with us.
