  • What happens if you allow negative people to be around you
  • Some negative people have infiltrated the Facebook group
  • Reasons that we want to avoid negative people
  • Get some clarity on who you want to be and do an audit of those closest to you

  • Pay attention to how you feel after spending time with different people
  • The best ways to deal with negative people

Contractors have a bad habit of stealing time from their families and that’s a huge problem, but where does all that time go? Chasing BS leads, that’s where it goes.

Tom is here to tell you how to pre-qualify those leads so you can stop stealing time from your family! 

 

In this episode, we talk about…

  • The problem with just reading a list of questions
  • Where salespeople fall on the spectrum of public trust
  • Importance of setting the tone with your spirit of the conversation
  • Expressing gratitude to your clients and prospects will take you leaps and bounds
  • Common misconceptions about the goal of the sales process
  • Where 80% or more of the sale actually happens
  • Shifting the conversation over to the money
  • Make sure to set proper expectations in case of unexpected circumstances
  • All decision-makers must be involved in the process

How many contractors out there have discounted their work just to close a deal? If you came up with the classic world of contracting, this may seem like the norm. Ask yourself this question. Why would allow yourself to get paid less than your worth? Tom thinks that most of the time, discounting your work is a horrible idea and he’s here to tell you why!

 

In this episode, we talk about…

  • Strategic discounting is different than what most contractors do
  • Discounts give the wrong impression unless you want to be known as the cheap one
  • Becoming price-focused as a salesperson does not help
  • Attracting customers with discounts is only going to bring discount referrals
  • Lowering your prices does not equate to selling more projects
  • Diving into the negative effects of discounts on your profit
  • Calculate what you need to keep each month
  • Discounting makes it harder to build a strong team
  • Things you can do instead of discounting
