The Worst Combination for all Speakers

The Worst Combination for all Speakers

In one of the longer episodes in my series 20 Fatal Mistakes, I touch on something you don’t want to miss out on. In fact, for many, this may be one of the episodes in which you will want to watch over and over again just so you don’t miss out on a single bit of advice or lesson I’m bringing to you. This episode may be one of the most important in the series. 

Why is this episode so important? Because this episode describes the number one reason why people blow up their presentations. The number one reason why people never get their voice and their message out to the world. Above all else the number one reason why people don’t buy into what you have to say and don’t listen to you.

Question: When you give a presentation, whether it be online or off-line, when are you most nervous? 

Answer: The beginning right? 

Question: When is the group of people to whom you are speaking the most skeptical? 

Answer: The beginning right? Because people don’t know you so they don’t trust you yet. 

Last Question: How long does it take for people to get an impression of you? 

Answer: It only takes them seconds. Now if you think about these three conditions, you’ll have to agree it’s a horrible cocktail!

Horrible because you’re nervous, they’re skeptical, and they’re judging you all right in the beginning. If you blow it in the first couple seconds or first several minutes, well it’s downhill from there. Or worse yet, it’s an uphill battle from that point to get yourself out of the hole you just dug for yourself. Don’t worry people aren’t going to yell or throw stuff at you, no need to duck! They’ve just mentally checked out. Their minds are elsewhere while you’re up front trying to teach them what you know.

Engaging right out the gate in a way that makes you look your best, that enrolls them and gets them to trust and respect your results in them feeling good about it all. I’ve taught this to hundreds of thousands of presenters all over the world. Helping them keep their audience engaged along with not sabotaging their presentations.

It’s All About Discipline

In my last post, I reemphasized my position that sales equals income.

And now is a good time to dig deeper and discuss how it’s possible to sell more in the face of the coronavirus chaos.

Believe me when I say that this IS possible.

I have clients who are absolutely making a killing out there! They’re doubling their conversions, quadrupling the reach on social media, and closing 20-30% more sales!

These clients are not looking at the pandemic as an obstacle. Instead, they’re turning it around and making the most out of it.

But of course, there are also those who don’t know how they’re going to make ends meet. They have to worry about money, on top of the fear and uncertainty.

But, what separates those who are doing well and the paralyzed? How can you also use this period to increase your conversions and deals?

There are three things that you’re going to need:

The first is the right mindset. Start with your mind and that’s going to lead to everything else.

And then the second component is the skills.

And perhaps most importantly, you’re going to need discipline! 

Without discipline, your mindset and skills may be for naught.

Much like you need the discipline to stay fit and healthy, you also need discipline to grow sales. It means that you must have the discipline to keep going, despite what’s going on around you.

Your customers haven’t disappeared, pandemic or not. They’re still there and it’s a case of whether you know how to find them or not. You won’t be able to do this if you don’t have the discipline.

What can you do if your selling skills aren’t up to snuff?

Now is a great opportunity to learn. You might as well make use of this social distancing to grow your income, right?

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again.

This can be an opportune time if you know how to use it to your gain.

Don’t use the coronavirus as an excuse to slow down. Take advantage of this tough time to build your sales muscle. When things lighten up, this is going to catapult your business ahead of others.

Stay Strong,

Blair Singer

Sales = Income


The coronavirus pandemic has changed the world at a rapid pace. But it’s not just the virus itself to blame here.

I’d argue that it’s all the panic and chaos that are transforming the world before our eyes.

People are so caught up in it all that they’re not even thinking about business growth. A big part of this is the guilt that business owners may feel. That’s a crucial topic, but I’m going to leave it for another post.

For now, I’d like to make one thing very clear:

You’ve got to continue to grow your income!

Cutting off your income is like cutting off the blood supply to your business, family, and all of your dreams. You’re not going to have the wherewithal to protect yourself and your loved ones.

Like I’ve been saying for the last 25 years, sales equals income. I’ve spent decades teaching people how to create miracle numbers and achieve the level of income for a Legacy LifeStyle.

That’s more important now, than ever. With all of this uncertainty, the inability to generate income is going to make it a lot worse.

But all that is going on shouldn’t prevent you from growing your income. The opposite may be true if you’re able to find and reach new customers. Your ideal customers may be changing, so you need to revisit this and update as necessary.

And your customer base isn’t the only thing that might change under this life-changing event.

If nothing else, you must have at least read or heard that business owners have to be able to adapt to changes. And this is a golden opportunity for you to actually put it into practice.

The pandemic is not going to stop you from growing, unless you let it. You can just sit at home and burn through your savings or you can work on growing your income. 

The choice is yours.
