In this episode I have the opportunity of interviewing two amazing individuals who are doing BIG THINGS to transform the way entrepreneurs build a successful business. Both Omar and Nichole have an educational background and recognized the limitations that traditional schooling offers related to business.
They look at what it was missing and developed an alternative call the “$100 MBA”. They run “The Business Republic” which is a weblog for those who are bootstrapping their business. Their focus is to related to these entrepreneurs by providing weekly thoughts, articles and videos to help them build a business that can’t be ignored. They are also developing a podcast that will be released pretty soon. Everything they do is to offer a rich experience to their students.
Some of the major take aways from our discussion are:
- Creating a great “sales experience” for your prospects/clients
- People love to buy, but hate to be sold
- Lack of knowledge/ability is a major contributor and affects a sales experiences
- Anyone can sell when taught what to do
- Make the sales experience enjoyable for the buyer
They also reveal the BIG SURPRISE I mentioned earlier this week related to their retreat. It is The Business Reboot Retreat in Cancun Mexico May 10-14, 2014. The retreat is slated to have some awesome instructors and is a going to be a great time to relax and get refreshed. Check it out.
