    “Stop Leaving Money on the Table”

    Learn Branding & Rebranding

    Replace Your Fear of Failure With a Need to Succeed!

    Branding your business successfully is the first step in being able to make your own rules, charge your own prices and stand out from any competition. Understanding your demographics, your clients and yourself is all part of process too. 

    In this program Trish will be talking about how creating a solid brand can help you put your fear of failure aside and replace it with a positive outlook and an exciting “Need to Succeed!”

    We will be exploring the power of creating and reshaping your brand without losing credibility as you face the changes in our industry and 2020 customer wants and needs. 

    You’ll learn how work in person sales better to really hear your client’s needs.    Is your brand flexible, professional and up with the times?   Trish will be sharing the latest updates on great ACI ordering systems and be explaining how she’s been able to upsell, tap in to a whole new client base and most importantly she’s figured out how stop leaving money on the table.

    After 10 years in the industry, Trish continues to sell to her clients and run her studio with Bold Business Strategies.   They say hindsight is 2020, she knows it’s absolutely true.  Sometimes you have to look back and let go to move forward.
