I love doing sales training’s so I decided to create a Sales workbook. I have been in sales since I was 7. I was the top girl scout cookie girl. There have been many opportunities to sell products since those days long ago. There are a number of keys to Be Exceptional at sales, Commitment, Consistency, Being Hungry, Not being afraid of Reject, It is a numbers game and More. I would love to train your sales team to take to their business to the next Level and See Exceptional Success!#BetheException #ExceptionalSales #SalesSuccess #PineapplePrinciple

Awesome & Amazing, What words do you use to describe your work?
Do you love your Career?
Are you enjoying your ride and the people you are sharing the journey with?
Have you ever spent a day with motivational speakers? In the group Toast Masters I believe they count the “ahs” and “ums” as you go through a speech. When I’m in a group of speakers, however, I like to count the “awesomes” and “amazings” that they use. These words have always seemed like normal, regular parts of conversation to me. When I hang out with people who aren’t speakers, I have a hard time figuring out why they aren’t more excited about life. Usually, the words “awesome” and “amazing” aren’t part of their regular vocabulary.
It suddenly dawned on me one day that we speakers might actually be the silly ones. We look for the good, the positive, the awesome, and the amazing in all situations. As speakers we find those superlatives in the people we meet and the stories they share. Some people say that speakers are a special breed or a bit of a freak-show, providing unique stories that come from all corners of the earth. If that’s the case, I’m happy to be that special breed and a part of that freak-show. I want to share my stories with the rest of the world, and experience the awesome and amazing people who come to listen to me speak.
What words would you use to describe the speaker you know?
What words are common with your co-workers? Are Awesome & Amazing a common part of your dialogue?
Are your words more encouraging or discouraging?
Do you look for the good in the people, the stories, and the situations around you?
Go for it! Lets set a Goal
What is your big Goal for 2017?
Sometimes you just have to go for it even when you don’t have all the details or a clear plan worked out. How many of you are ready to be courageous and jump all in with me? We are signed up for the MS 150 this join and we are looking for people to join us on the ride or even do a training ride with me. Who is in….Big goals keep us moving forward!
Someone called me high maintenance…WOW, I kind of liked it! I told him I was particular and he said “NO you’re high maintenance.” It made me smile. I know to most people it’s not a compliment but to me it felt kind of good to know what I want, speak my mind and be heard. It got me to thinking, what is high maintenance? What does it mean? Is it a good or bad thing? Is it okay to ask for what you want the way you want it? It reminded me that as a child I never felt seen or heard and as a woman I want to be. I want to hear your thoughts and opinions too, but I want you to hear mine. It’s okay to enjoy life, to have interests, desires, needs and even wants met sometimes.
I was talking to a client the other day who was frustrated with a number of people in her life and how they were treating her. I asked, “Do you tell them how you feel? What you want?” and she said, “No, they should know, why don’t they know by now?” See, you can call me high maintenance if you want but at least you know what I want. I know I might not always get it, but I’m going to ask. I want to live on the ocean; I’ll work hard to someday spend at least a month on the ocean. We have to ask for what we want and need from others. If we don’t we spend way too much time disappointed. No one can read your mind. Expectations often lead to disappointment.
Asking for what we want might lead to someone saying no to us but at least we’ll know where we stand, rather than waiting for untold and unrealistic expectations.
What does living your best life look like to you?
Are you high maintenance? Are you left disappointed often? Are you willing to ask for what you want & need?

Today many people might use different words to describe my life or your but what I love is that I am happy. I am done judging me and every move I make and I am enjoying the moments. I am responsible for my voice and my choice of how I will live my life and what I will speak up about and where I will hold my tongue to bring more peace. My life is filled with more JOY then I ever could have dreamed of but it may not be the life you want. Create your own dream life. Dream big, speak up and go after what you want in life!
Stand Out or Fit In?
I was at a meeting the other day and a woman who was getting a little overwhelmed by the material we were covering said, “I just want to fit in.”
It took everything in me to not stand up and scream, “Please stop!” The group might have thought I was a bit goofy but they probably already do and I’m okay with that.
You see, I’ve spent way too many years of my life trying to fit in, to belong, to be like others. Today, I know I was created to stand out, NOT fit in. Yes, I still wish everyone liked me or at least all of my ideas but if they don’t, I’m still okay.
I have so many clients that just want to fit in, to be normal, to be liked. Sometimes in the process of getting other people’s approval, we lose sight of ourselves, our values, our beliefs, and our dreams.
You are wonderfully made as you! Be the best version of yourself you can and don’t try or want to be someone else. You are too good for that. You were not made to fit in; you were made to STAND OUT!
