Want to grow your business? First grow yourself


This week’s question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from Pam.

Neagle Code Question

Hi David,

My question is this. Do you help retail businesses? Does your message work for every business? I want to attend your seminar, but I always talk myself out of it because I’m not a coach, etc. In your opinion, is this just an excuse or can you help someone like me?

Thanks, Pam

Neagle Code Answer

Hi Pam!

First off, I don’t think your question is an excuse.

In fact I think it’s a perfectly legitimate question to ask when making this decision, and I’m thrilled you sent it in to me!

What I’m teaching currently is about becoming a center of influence in your own life as well as the lives of others, and then using specific strategies and lines of questioning to help someone else make a decision.

This is important in ALL business, whether you’re a coach, a CEO, a retailer, a sales person, or a virtual small business owner.

Let me give you an example:

If you are a retailer looking to grow your own business, you must first grow yourself. You must first learn how to influence yourself to do the things that need to be done to grow your business.

After all, your business is your responsibility and only limited by you, right?

Once you begin to be an influence in your own life, you’ll then be able to be an influence in the lives of others, which is why my upcoming training starts there.

In your case, you must be an influencer or leader in the lives of your employees and your customers as well.

And here’s the kicker…you can’t influence people by “telling” them anything. True influence really occurs when you ask questions that lead your employee or customer to make a decision or come to an awareness all on their own.

So I then walk you step by step through my blueprint and give you the exact questions to ask and words to say that will have an impact on whoever is considering your product or service.

I don’t care if you’re selling services or widgets, this skill is essential to the growth of ANY business.

Therefore, all of my scripts, scenarios, strategies and tools can be adapted to any business.

If you have additional business specific questions, PLEASE feel free to give my team a call at 877-776-6364. They’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have!

Looking forward to meeting you in person!

Just Believe,®
