After years of working hard to build her business, Marie achieved what she never thought she would. In 2016 Marie opened a sales and marketing firm with her mentor, and life partner, Jim. This had been her dream since the first time she met him. In short order, their business boomed. And in 7 months…he passed away.

Marie’s powerful story of resilience, how to do business from a place of love and inspirational comeback will engage, move and motivate every level of audience. She proudly refers to her keynote as, “Red Lipstick and Resilience”.

How To Fall In Love With Sales.

Most people have a gut reaction when it comes to the idea of a ‘salesperson’. Slimy, pushy, and aggressive are some of the first things that come to mind. If you are trying to be the salesperson you face a different set of emotional experiences like fear, rejection, and judgment can often rear their ugly heads.

Marie Hale, owner of @revenue and life long sales pro, shares a unique view of doing business through a filter of ‘professional love’. Understanding what your clients and potential clients truly need from you and how you can empower yourself and your team with a permission-based sales process that is nurturing instead of pushy will open the audience to a completely new understanding of sales.

What they will learn:

– How to do business from a place of love

– What leads really need

– Why you should be choosing your clients, not the other way around

– How to get more high-quality clients
