The 15-Minute Huddle - 10.31.18 - The BIG Reveal

October 31, 2018

Great day!

First, I received a ton of feedback on the last two 15-Minute Huddles we did on asking questions.  Most are saying they now better understand how to better present and move their conversations forward while building more trust, credibility, and better relationships.

Work on this most important skill by practicing with your peers, family and yes… your prospects.  Your opinion is important, however, let’s get the opinions and feelings from other people first then you can make the best recommendation to better serve THEIR needs.

Ok… How’s your week going?  Did you set any appointments for the week? Get any leads? Did you sell anything? Close anything? Send out any thank you notes?  Add some folks to your database? Did you spend some quality time with the family?

Did you practice like madmen and madwomen? Did you know that Phantom of the Opera is the longest running show on Broadway … the same show and script day in and day out and the actors still practice every day? MMMMM ...something to think about...right??

The real question is did you plan and execute on any of the above? I hope so! 

Because today is an important day…why?  For many years since I was about 21 … I was always intrigued by Autobiographies … the life stories of people from business to leadership.  From presidents to preachers to parents.  I wanted to learn what they did and how they did it. How they think; how they made decisions; how they acted, how they achieved and all of the things in between. 

To this day … I still look at what others do that makes them great at what they do and who they’ve become. Ove the years as a trainer and coach, I’ve taken upon myself to put together the attributes of some of the very best in our business.  Folks who I’ve coached who are earning in excess of $250000 a year… year in and year out in the same markets and conditions that others who are only doing average.  

On today’s 15-Minute Huddle … I’m going to reveal [ a powerful word] to you what those attributes are and hopefully, you’ll steal them and use them to profit mentally and financially. [the first secret is that's all they did too!]

So be prepared ... with notepad in hand for the BIG REVEAL!

The 15-Minute Huddle - 10.30.18 - Asking Questions Part 2

The 15-Minute Huddle - 10.30.18 - Asking Questions Part 2

October 30, 2018

Are you having a great day?

Yesterday, we spoke about the power of using questions in selling. The very best and highest-paid salespeople in every field share certain qualities and characteristics.

They always appear to be low-keyed, easy going, relaxed, warm, friendly and very interested in the thoughts, feelings, and opinions of others. They are very likable people.

They learn that the great secret in selling, as well as in all human relationships, is to ask questions and listen carefully to the answers. The more they listen, the more they learn about how they can structure their product or service offerings to help customers achieve their own goals or satisfy their needs.

Here's a quick recap of why asking questions is so critical...

  • It helps you identify the customer is true needs, fears, desires, and objections…
  • He keeps your clients and prospects engaged in the conversation…
  • If you ask the proper questions, it actually leads them to self-discovery and it stimulates their thinking...
  • It helps build a deeper rapport…
  • It helps you to be a better listener…
  • It gives you control of the presentation…

In today’s 15-Minute Huddle, we’ll continue to you learn about “Asking Questions” …

The Art of Asking Questions is one of the most important discoveries in human relations and one of the best of all interpersonal skills in human communications. 

I hope to answer over these last couple of calls the following questions…

1.      Why is it more powerful to ask questions than to speak?

2.      What is the primary benefit of asking questions rather than talking?

3.      Why do top salespeople ask such excellent questions?

4.      What are the two essential rules for success in selling?

5.      What are the four basic types of questions you can ask?

6.      What are the key times for you to use questions in the sales conversation?

7.      How should you ask any question of a customer or prospect?

Of all the skills you must learn, I believe that this is the one that will make you stand out in the minds of your prospects and clients more than anything else! So, I’ll do my best to answer these in the time we have together and if not… well, I’ll make another recording on the most important subject.

Let me ask… will you make it great today?

The 15- Minute Huddle - Question Based Selling Part 1

The 15- Minute Huddle - Question Based Selling Part 1

October 29, 2018

WOW!  The 29th of the month…

Don’t you just love when a month ends and a new one begins?  There is so much opportunity to speak with folks who have not yet sold their properties? 

Isn’t it a perfect time to pick up the ball that someone else dropped?  Especially, this time of the year when if you really dig… you’ll find the truly motivated individuals who must sell. 

Over the next few days on our 15 Minute Huddles … we’ll going to enter zone that few folks are willing to enter … I’m not sure why… although I have a few good ideas and if they did… they can do an 12-24 or more deals a year and gross an average of $60,000 to $120,000 or more in income…

Question…could you use that XTRA Income?  Could it change some things for you? Pay some debts? Expand your team? Change a zip code where you live? Add more money to your financial freedom and God forbid “anything happens” accounts?  Could you give more to your favorite charity… outside of a family member?

I imagine you’ll come up with many uses of the money…right? 

So, where we will go for just the next couple of days to better prepare you for the influx of expired listings…we’ll talk about some of the best practices to get in the doors and get them happily working with you.


For example, today… we’ll start with a very important and one of the most overlooked parts of the sales process [one we’ve only touched on] and that’s the Power of Question Based Selling!

Have you ever been in a conversation or presentation and you noticed that there is very little, if any, responses from the prospect?  They seem to smile and nod, but they don’t engage as they could be.

The main reason?  It’s more of like a monologue than a dialogue… you’re are doing most of the talking and not enough of the asking of great questions…

Today… I’m going to share with you some very simple, yet powerful ways to get folks engaged with YOU! 

Why you? Because they’ll recognize a real professional … someone who is interested in them rather than themselves.  Someone who will give them what they want because they SOLD themselves on wanting what you have to offer! 

How?  By simply mastering the art of asking great questions!  So, if you’re interested … This will help you; build better relationships, set more appointments, sign more contracts and get more referrals and repeat business…now that’ll be great, won’t it?
