Here are the highlights of this episode:
Michael's ideal clients are those professional service providers; financial advisor, attorney, coach, or even realtor. And oftentimes, they didn't realize that they look like their competition, meaning similar methods or offerings. And because of that, the prospect customers don’t see any compelling reason to choose them over the competitor. They felt that they were losing sales that they should be winning. They have the initial conversation with the prospects but they don't know why they are not closing the sales. Therefore, they felt stressed out, discouraged, and frustrated. He says it's important that prospects have a positive mindset about you, and for them to know your story. Because when you tell your story, it resonates with people and then they bond with you. He states that when you know how people think about you, everything becomes easier. Your message will become clear, your story will resonate with people, they will bond with you emotionally, and that will cause them to move towards you.
Michael’s Valuable Free Action (VFA): Remember that people buy "who you are" more than what you do. Try to discover your story, not create them. Discover your story that's unique about you and tell that.
