HP 90: How Do I Close Sales When My Product Is Expensive?
I’m going to share a perfect example of how NOT to close a sale. Do this and you will lose your chances of gaining a new client. Firstly let me ask…how much is a sale worth to you? …meaning if you sold one of your biggest ticket products? Eg like a coaching program, a consultancy fee, a membership etc. If you are selling a service/product that has a ‘Big Price Tag’ then listen to this as this is a fatal mistake most people making and has then lost most of their sales. Today I share with you a perfect example of a poor sales process that has been presented to me as a customer that I’m going to share exactly what went wrong so you don’t do this in your business.

HP 84: The Fat Loss Protocol with Cindy O’Meare – Most Popular Episode!
Do you know that your body can signal turning off fat release? Meaning even though you may try to exercise your butt or gut off, your body still isn’t allowing you to release fat. Sooo not fair! You’re frustration starts to climb as you get more despair wondering what is going on. You’re still eating the same but now putting on weight daily, you have completely lost your waistline that you had in your 20’s and getting more and more joint pain. Sounds familiar? In this episode we invite Cyndi O’Meara on the show to take us through her Fat Loss Protocol. Cyndi shares the science of why the Fat Loss Protocol works so effectively especially for middle age women. She walks us through the four phases of this transformational program. In our 40’s our hormone really start to come into play. What we use to do to lost weight just doesn’t work anymore. One of the biggest problems Cyndi shares is because we are leptin resistant. Leptin tells our hormones what to do. What to do with fat & hunger specifically! The fat Loss protocol shows you how to RESET your leptin sensitivity and stop the middle age spread in its tracks. Now in this interview Cyndi shares something that totally stops me in my tracks – you hear me actually gasp a big “WOW” ….something that I have never heard before about how simply the fat from your moisturiser could STOP your fast loss results. CRAZY SH*T! Her are some other things she teaches you: How and why your body goes into ketosis…and what is it? How simply drinking a certain type of alcohol could put on a couple of kilos of inflammation over night. Your body can’t put on a kilo of weight over night..this is inflammation. But the good news is you can find something that actually helps you have a drink and not pay the price the next day. The more fat cells you have or shall I say the more overweight you are -the more your Leptin signal is NOT work and makes you think you’re hungry when you’re not. (PLUS HOW TO RESET THIS- YES!!!) How stress from being a high achieving entrepreneur interrupts your digestion which in turn effects our weight. What HCG is why its important to know to help you support your fat loss journey The importance of season cycles for fat loss.

HP 79: Flora & Fauna: The Largest Vegan, Eco-Friendly Online Store In The World
It took 2 years before Julie made the decision to burn her full-time employment bridges to play full out with Flora & Fauna. Until then, she had been working on her business at night. Only 3 short years after that decision, Flora & Fauna became known as the largest vegan, eco-friendly store in the world. Julie found herself gracing the stages of accepting awards for Telstra Small Business in NSW, Best online retailer 2018 ORIAs as well as Top 50 People in Australia for eCommerce. How did it all start? Julie Mathers found herself looking at the ingredients of a lipstick which then started the query “… what is actually in this product?” “Has it been tested on animals?” The more she questioned the more she realized that there was a massive hole in the marketplace, for needing more integrity and transparency of products in skincare and beauty. What started as an online store 2014 with 300 products in beauty, has now rapidly grown to 8000+ products, anything from houseware goods, to food to fashion. This down to earth “Mother Teresa of retail”, that’s what I coined her on the show, is one the first Australian businesses to be certified with BCorp (known for better business). Julie shares the grueling audit that her business went through to get the tick of approval and badge of honor….please understand that only 200 businesses today in Australia actually have it! WOW!
