I totally love his books and his message, that it’s not about being a go-getter in life, rather you have to be go-giver to succeed. We coaches know about how to be of service and make a difference, and I just KNOW that you’ll love joining me as Bob and I engage in one of our fun-filled conversations where you get to participate!
My friend Bob Burg joined us with a his brilliant insights about how to sell more coaching services in today’s economy! As a coach, you add exceptional value to the lives of your clients, and should be highly-compensated for such. But, to charge a healthy fee, and attract the right people, you need to “walk in your value.” In this session, you’ll learn how to do just that, as well as feel very comfortable “selling” your services. Yes, “selling”…though that might not be exactly what you think it is.
TOPIC: Do Go-Givers Really Sell More In Today’s Economy?
Shifting your focus from “getting to giving” is not only a nice way to live life…but a very financially profitable way, as well.
You cannot control “The” Economy but you can absolutely control “Your” economy.
When Bob Burg, coauthor of the international bestseller, The Go-Giver, speaks about “giving,” he’s talking in terms of “constantly and consistently providing value to the lives of others.” When you can take your focus off yourself and shift it onto how you can be an asset of value to other people, you’ll plant seeds of goodwill — of great will — that will come back to you many, many times over. And, not because of some magical, mystical type of thinking, but because it makes absolutely practical sense.
However, one wonders: “Isn’t that kind of naive?” “Isn’t that just feel-goody, new-agey stuff that doesn’t work in the real-world?” Or, even, “Sure, maybe when the economy is good, but now we have to fight for everything we get. So, isn’t this simply bad advice?”
Actually, not only is it not naive, it’s quite practical. And, again, for very concrete reasons that Bob will explain.
Bob has built his business, and shows others how to build theirs, based on one overriding, foundational principle:
“All things being equal, people will do business with, and refer business to, those people they know, like and trust.”

Shifting focus from getting to giving: Consistently providing value to others.

“Great to work outside our comfort zone, but we don’t want to write outside our STRENGTHS zone!”~Bob Burg
Give more in value than you take in payment: Law of Value
Price is a dollar amount. Value is relative worth or desirability of a thing to the end user.
Money is echo to value: Money is the thunder to value’s lightning.
Giving is equally important to receiving.
Understand the value you provide as a coach. Don’t sell yourself short.
Walk in your value.
As professionals, we teach people how to treat us!
= elements of Value
