Results: In 5 weeks, secured one sale that accounted for 6 months of sales during the same time the previous year.
An entrepreneur with three businesses desired to increase sales and profitability for one of those businesses focusing on promotional items. Due to commitments in the other two businesses and this specific business facing increased competitive pressure, the entrepreneur had hired an independent contractor to increase sales. However, sales still were lacking.
Leanne was asked to help increase sales including profitability and to help the entrepreneur achieve greater balance in the executive's personal life. Through executive one on one coaching coupled with some strategic planning actions and sales training and development, the entrepreneur increased focus on securing sales and negotiating better financial arrangements with the vendors.
These actions resulted in a significant sale within 5 weeks that accounted for 6 months of sales during the same time the previous year. Profitability also doubled as the entrepreneur decided to take proactive actions specific to financial arrangements with the vendor.
