February 15, 2017 @ WeWork Philadelphia
12:00 to 2:00pm

Is sales and marketing something you must do … not something you love to do!

Why is that? Because you are great at what you do. Whether that is plumbing, engineering, accounting, negotiating, cooking, sailing, building, architecting, designing, sewing, cleaning, even thinking. But the “art” of sales and marketing is a mystery shrouded in cold calls, email campaigns, advertising budgets, social media posts and something called content marketing!

Don't worry, it’s not that hard. There are a few key processes to learn to become a marketing and sales superstar.

Also, it can be fun and rewarding. Get it right and your business will take off! Having a proven and repeatable sales process that works is the single most valuable thing you can do for your business.

Join us for lunch and we’ll show you how to craft a sales and marketing process that works.
