What Participants Are Saying… About Barb’s Programs…

Coaching, Consulting, Training & Speaking

Kathy-Rausch“I am so thrilled with the work I did with Barb Girson, My Sales Tactics, LLC. I hired Barb to be my Sales and Public Speaking Coach.

My experience working is deep and wide, but I was stuck. Barb helped me get to my “why”. I was stuggling with how to market my USBling! product, and my website expertise. Barb helped me understand my LOVE to help people and companies Shine Online IS the why behind everything I do in this work.

Since I started with Barb, I’ve had 5 successful speaking engagements where the crowd was engaged and really happy with what they learned. I sold products from the stage and I have more leads for website work than I’ve had in years And, the best thing is, I’m excited and happy because it’s all coming from wanting a place of excitement and joy for the work I do.

Having Barb observe me at one of my speaking engagements was incredibly helpful. Transformational actually. She helped me stay calm in the face of nothing being set up the way I thought it would be and be focused on why I was giving the talk in the first place. I had so much fun and everyone learned a lot (and I sold products and got great leads). Barb and I laughed and talked about how I could improve and what I did right.

What a gift it is to work with Barb!” – Kathy Rausch, TekMiss Helps You Shine Online!

Dee-Ann-Sheldon“Before I took Barb’s program, Build Your Bookings, my holiday calendar was empty. In one week, my November calendar had 11 parties and more in December.

Barb just simply teaches you what to say and gives you the exact verbiage to use, with humor added to the mix. Barb gently guides you and really listens to you without judging.

Then, she is able to make helpful suggestions to tweak your wording to make a positive difference. She can help you focus on what really matters which gives you confidence and energy to “charge” ahead. Barb has the uncanny knack to zero-in on your weaknesses making kind suggestions to turn them into strengths.

It’s all a matter of what you say and how you say it that makes a difference. The class was definitely worth my investment and I would recommend it to anyone who needs a jump-start! I am taking more of Barb’s classes for sure!” – Dee Ann Sheldon

My personal business is getting back on track and I have learned the most effective way to work with my team to generate motivation and success. I have really taken everything I learned in the training and applied it to my business. I am rebuilding a strong team and have a much healthier picture of what I want my team to be and how I want it to function.

Thanks again! My frustration is finally gone and I feel like the sky is the limit!” – Lauren Stanley, Independent Advisor/Group Leader, H2O AT HOME

Maryanna-Radeff

 

“I just wanted to thank you again for a great session on the follow up training. Your helpful tips and verbiage have really improved my confidence.

The greatest lesson I learned by far was the fact that we really need to carve out a set time for follow up and hold ourselves accountable. The more calls I made the more confident I became and the easier it got. I also realized that if I focus on the feeling of accomplishment and not the fear of getting started I could actually move my business forward!

And to think I almost didn’t sign up for your class! Thank you Barb for empowering me to be better at what I do!” – Maryanna Radeff, District Manager, Arbonne Independent Consultant

________________________________________________________________

Teresa-Breckenridge“I decided to work with Barb because of the great reputation given via Jewish Family Services and that during my career transition I was intrigued with the thought of becoming my own boss! An obvious advantage to taking the workshop was the one-on-one attention and meeting others in an intimate setting that were experiencing the same thoughts and challenges I was.

I was laid off from an industry I’d been a part of for over 20+ years and decided to tap into my talents and dreams.

Barb does an amazing job of keeping you focused during the workshop and the materials given were easy to follow. I liked having homework to keep me in check and the visual list of what I wanted when I started the workshop and how far I think I went by the end of the workshop.

You gave me the confidence to move forward with my ideas and made me think bigger than I was currently thinking about my product.

As a coach; the positive feedback needed to stay motivated was given. As a speaker; I enjoyed your enthusiasm and listening to your OWN story of success. As a trainer; the focus and staying on task at hand in a short period of time were outlined nicely.

The best benefit/s that I received was the confidence in myself, the information to move ahead and the assistance and motivation to take action weekly. Barb is a Creative, Enthusiastic, and Informative Sales Coach. Personally, I think those that support others in the workforce daily could benefit greatly from your program. Coming myself from training and supervising others, the need for those in the customer service world need inspired greatly to look at themselves and their other talents.

I hope you know that during a time of conflict and self-doubt you helped me re-kindle a spark of wanting to really be my own boss. I’m looking forward to the several adventures I have in the works with becoming my own consultant and continually looking into the patenting of my product, etc.” – Teresa Breckenridge, Discover Your Inner Entrepreneur Participant

Barb is very respectful of the time schedules of her clients and her enthusiasm for her work always shows.

“There is so much more to this business than what it seems on the surface, and Barb gave us challenges that helped me to see that when you dive in, dive deep so that the rewards will be many in more areas than just one, and your customers will be long term.

Thank you, Barb, for making the training fun and thank you for the priceless knowledge that has helped so many of us. I look forward to the next training topic that you teach. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all you have done for me.’’ – Pamela Rose, Oklahoma

________________________________________________________________

“I know for some of you who are new to the business it may seem like a lot to outlay before you have actually made any money. I understand this because that was me back in January. Having had no experience in…selling I thought that it was ‘probably’ worth my while to invest in some training. Never in a million years did I believe that 4 months down the track I would have a business with over 300 customers and a team of 6…some with their own team. I have made over $6000++…. all from a little part-time job that I began do give me ‘some extra cash’!!

I truly believe that doing Barb’s course in January gave me the confidence, the business knowledge and the belief that ‘anything is possible’….and how to do it with integrity and professionalism. I really can’t explain what it will mean to your business….but we will all see, and you will understand in a few months time what impact doing Barb’s course has made.” – Melanie Hood, Australia

I have a new mindset on asking for business….Barb is always fun, engaging and encourages interaction. She role-plays ideas and techniques that show just how easy it is to be successful. I can truly say that I can feel that Barb is truly interested in my success!

I would highly recommend this workshop to anyone looking for a positive way to boost your business.” – Carolyn Jaggers, Texas

“Barb invited me to my first NAWBO event called Wine, Women and Wisdom, and although I knew only a few of the women at the event, I felt very comfortable thanks in part to Barb. Barb was one of the speakers at the event and she not only presented the information about NAWBO in an easy to understand fashion, she was also able to get everyone in the room relaxed and laughing. I heard many of the women around me comment on how funny she was.

“I experienced your “Unforgettable Follow up” teleclass” a month or so ago. I wanted to begin by telling you how much I value the information I learned. I know follow up is a weak piece of my business. I have been stopped in my tracks at the thought of bothering people. Your examples were priceless. Also, learning the high percentage of sales that are lost do to lack of follow up was painful to know but very helpful. I am on track with putting into place a system to track the conversations. I used one of your lines when a gal canceled an appointment with me and now I have no reason to feel uncomfortable in getting in touch with her again. Thank you again for this valuable information!” – Connie Farabaugh
