Today we’re understanding how you can sign an impressive 19 corporate deals in just 6 short weeks. If you’re feeling overwhelmed and overworked, particularly from managing a B2C business, this episode is for you. I’ll be sharing my journey from feeling responsible for others’ results to setting clear boundaries and enjoying client delivery again.

We’ll also cover the various perks of joining The C Suite program before August 31st, including hot seat sessions and access to an exclusive in-person day. Get ready to unlock secrets to generating predictable revenue streams and avoiding the feast and famine cycle.

Key Quotes;

 

Maximise your data usage: “A lot of the time, we don’t use the insights. We just track the data almost out of habit, and then we end up not using it.”

— Jess Lorimer [00:02:13][00:03:23]

 

Data driven success: “Data driven sales processes make more money, in a much simpler way and are much better at preventing your own burnout as a business owner.”

— Jess Lorimer [00:28:58][00:29:10]

 

“Maximising sales potential”: “You want to have a B2B sales process that works, that is efficient, that you don’t have to think about but you can scale using team members as and when you want to.”

— Jess Lorimer [00:31:57][00:32:08]

 

Self-Worth and confidence in sales: “But it is also quite shocking to me the amount of people that I see who would rather spend 6 months to a year trying to figure it out, failing because they’re not qualified salespeople, diminishing their self worth and confidence, and then thinking, I don’t know whether I can do this.”

— Jess Lorimer [00:22:46][00:23:10]

Finding the right business tools: “Sometimes you have to take a little step back and go, what is it that I want to achieve in my business? Am I investing in the right tools or the right resources or the right support to get there?”

— Jess Lorimer [00:24:00][00:24:10]

 

The importance of longevity in motivation: “About 90 days after being the most motivated version of themselves that they can possibly be, it becomes more difficult to hold yourself accountable and keep doing the things. Because the reality of B2B sales is that it is about progress and following a very clear process and just doing the things consistently.”

— Jess Lorimer [00:06:42][00:07:07]

 

Focus on immediate solutions to prevent overwhelm: “People can fall into this trap of I’m only focusing on long term revenue. That means I’m only going to present the biggest solution ever to prospective clients, and that can be quite overwhelming for the client.”

— Jess Lorimer [00:15:05][00:15:19]
