Webinar 7 Pricing & Productivity Mistakes You're Probably Making & How To (Colorfully) Fix Them With The Party Goddess & Angela Profitt

Does This Sound Like Anyone You Know? 

Ever been so desperate for the business that you took on a high maintenance client who nickeled and dimed you from the start, knowing she was going to make your life completely miserable? Ever been in a pinch and hired someone because an extra pair of hands had to be better than no one? (And then, ahem, they were a complete and total disaster?) Learn why that cheapskate bi-polar yo-yo is killing your business and how to spot them a mile away.

Then, please join Angela Proffitt and Marley Majcher for a truly life changing experience. (Well, that might be pushing it, but it’s going to be super good and worth your time).

You’ll Learn

  • The #1 hiring mistake we’re all making that’s DEADLY to our businesses and is costing us tons of money
  • The 4 color process Microsoft & Google use to make selling a snap
  • How to spot that high maintenance client a mile away so you can cheerfully refer them to the competition
  • The exact words to use to get paid faster, get your point across and make the sale right from the start

Angela Proffitt, the CEO of Vivid Experiences & True Colors Certified Facilitator, has learned to use her background in psychology (and in the MORGUE, for real!) to master communication strategies and customize her messaging to clients before even meeting them. The methodology is super easy to implement and is life changing, personally and professionally. Jump on the webinar so you can master it too!
