    What it Takes: Core Beliefs, Personal Development, Sales Training

    in Entrepreneur


    Sales training. Sales training is not product training. Sales training is learning how to relate to prospects in a way favorable such that, both, the agent and the prospect have meaningful, two-way dialogue during the sales interview.
    Personal development. This area involves keeping a positive attitude when you do not feel like working. Personal development reduces anxiety and frustration so you will not beat yourself up.
    Core beliefs. This is the set of values that defines you. No one can take these from you. Your core beliefs can accelerate your sales performance. Or, your core beliefs can dampen your sales performance. 


    If your core beliefs are not aligned with good sales performance and revenue expectations, you can develop new components to establish a new belief system... but it is not easy. You have had your current core beliefs for the last 25, 35, 45, or 55 years.


    But here's one thing I learned and use to help salespersons. Getting all three-sales training, personal development and core beliefs-to fire in harmony starts with sales training.


    If you do not know how to sell, while trying to improve personal development skills and working from your current belief system, functioning as a salesperson becomes extremely frustrating.


    Why? Because personal development training is not sales training, and this results in salespersons working too hard trying to wing it with prospects. Salespersons will often spend years and thousands of dollars on personal development training and never learn how to sell.


    Sales training helps clear the fog about what you are selling. Here's how:



    Learning how to sell and generate more income, the mind becomes more receptive to personal development training.
    Next, personal development training exposes negative core beliefs that need to change.

    JUST SAY NO TO COMMON CORE WITH GUEST MEG NORRIS

    in Lifestyle

    COMMON CORE IS SWEEPING THE COUNTRY, LARGELY BY EDICT FROM SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS AND THEIR POLITICAL CRONIES.  BUT BLOWBACK IS GAINING STEAM AS MORE AND MORE PARENTS LOOK AT THE PROGRAM AND ITS CURRICULUM AND FIND IT WANTING.  SO WHAT IS BEST FOR OUR KIDS AND WHAT CAN WE DO TO MAKE SURE THEIR BEST INTERESTS ARE WHAT IS DONE?


    WE ARE PLEASED TO HAVE MEG NORRIS OF GEORGIA AS OUR GUEST TONIGHT ON NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE. MEG IS A GEORGIA CERTIFIED TEACHER WHO LEFT HER PROFESSION AFTER WATCHING THE FRUSTRATION OF HER CONFUSED SEVENTH GRADE STUDENTS WITH THE COMMON CORE CURRICULUM.  SHE JUST REALIZED THAT THIS WAS NOT THE ANSWER TO IMPROVING EDUCATION AND HAS SINCE COMMITTED HERSELF TO AN ACTIVIST ROLE IN STOPPING THIS CORPORATE TAKEOVER OF EDUCATION. 


    MEG IS TIRELESS;  FOUNDED SEVERAL FACEBOOK SITES FOR THE CAUSE INCLUDING OPT OUT GEORGIA AND GEORGIANS TO STOP COMMON CORE. SHE IS ALSO A CANDIDATE FOR A DOCTORATE IN EDUCATION AND TRAVELS EXTENSIVELY TO FIGHT THE BATTLE NOT JUST IN GEORGIA BUT AROUND THE NATION.  SHE ALSO IS A FIRM BELIEVER IN CLASSICAL EDUCATION WITH THE NEED FOR A STUDENT TO TAKE NOTES, WRITE IN CURSIVE, AND READ REAL BOOKS (NOT JUST COMPUTER SCREENS), AND USE PAPER, PENCIL AND CRAYONS.  YOUNG BRAINS NEED HANDS ON PRACTICALITY TO LEARN.


    IF YOU HAVE CONCERNS ABOUT COMMON CORE, AND YOU SHOULD, THE DISCUSSION SHOULD BE VALUABLE FOR PARENTS AND TAXPAYERS ALIKE.  IF IT GOES THROUGH AS THE POLITICAL ELITES WOULD LIKE, WE'LL ALL PAY THE PRICE.

    OTG-OTC: Hal Shurtleff: Talking John Birch Society, Common Core, COS & More

    in Politics Conservative

    Just the mention of the John Birch Society (JBS) sparks every emotion from fear, disdain, and hatred … to feelings of patriotism and fierce loyalty.   The JBS has been defined by other Conservatives, let alone Leftists … as an ultra-conservative, conspiracy-driven, racist, organization, "far removed from common sense."  Although organized in 1958, and still thriving today, some of the darkest decades for JBS were the 60’s and 70’s.  But does the JBS, today, still resemble the JBS of years ago?  And, while many balk at the very mention of the John Birch Society … can individuals actually recite any specific instances to back up their disfavor (without Googling, that is)?  How much of the criticism and disparagement of JBS is accurate?

    Debbie Barth and guest panel member, Lynn Thornily Bensy will be talking with Hal Shurtleff, Regional Field Director of the John Birch Society.  They will be talking about the history of JBS, the changes (if any), and the political stance of JBS in 2015.

    And … there will be so much more up for discussion, as well.  For example, what does JBS think about Common Core in schools?  How does Mr. Shutleff feel about the Article V Convention of States that has every implication of changing the U.S. Constitution, as we know it? 

    Mr. Shurtleff will also be talking about Camp Constitution, a week-long family event centered on the teaching and discussion of U.S. Constitution.  This is an upcoming event the week of July12-July 19, 2015, so tune in for the details!

    Instructional Snowflakes: Differentiating Your Product Under Common Core

    in Education

    Constraints need not lead to conformity. We all learn that no two snowflakes are alike and yet the properties that dictate how liquid water crystalizes are the same for each. The Common Core are a set of standards that leave room for considerable educational creativity and even demand that students delve deeper into English Language Arts (ELA) and Math content and processes than was common prior to these standards. The tendency, however, is to view the standards as what should be taught rather than what students should learn and, even then, just the minimum of what they should learn. Our guests on this show will share how they have accommodated and possibly embraced Common Core as they create products that improve student learning and support educators in the shift to Common Core.


    Guests at the table:



    Polly Stansell, SVP Strategy & Product Development at Voyager Learning 
    Janet Pittock, VP Curriculum at Redbird Advanced Learning 
    Michael Golden, CEO at Educurious
