The Anatomy of a Conversation Email: How to Engage and Sell
We spend so much of our life trying to fit in. Do what the person next to us is doing. Follow the advice of random billionaires because "it worked for them".
That's all well and good (and human nature) until you start losing yourself. One day you look up and realize that what you're building in life isn't #fulfilling. It's so far from your own voice that you're not sure how you got there.
This week on POWER HOUR, Erin teaches us the art of....being ourselves. Celebrating our unique personalities while growing a thriving business. She goes over how to create an engaging, conversational email step-by-step to connect to your audience in a powerful way and increase your profits as you do it.

How to Stop Chasing Clients and Start Attracting Them
How would your clients describe you in one word?
The power of personal branding is important in both your personal life and your business life.
You can build as many campaigns as you like but without a strong personal brand, you'll be stuck just chasing.
However, the power of personal branding doesn't stop there! 💪
With a powerful enough brand, clients come to you!
This week on POWER HOUR we've got the master of all things personal branding MICHELLE GRIFFIN to talk about what you can do to start attracting clients and stop chasing them!
You don't want to be 'stuck' chasing this one!
How to Run Better Sales Calls and Close Deals At Over 30%
"Okay sounds great, thanks for your time."
Is that how most of your discovery calls end?
Or, how about:
"Awesome, was so great to chat with you. Talk soon!"
"Love what you're doing, hope we can work together in the next few months."
Those opportunities are DOA.
Luckily, we have Marcus A. Chan joining us on POWER HOUR once again!
This time he went over how he closes 30% or more business on his discovery calls.
We bet his calls are intentional.
We bet that by the time potential clients get on the phone with him, the deal is already 99% done because he's already done the leg work.
The call is just a formality. A check box to seal the deal.
We were stoked to hear his specifics so we can all do better.

Connecting the Dots Between Content and Engagement on LinkedIn
This week we chat with Rachel Simon, a LinkedIn content expert. We're all creating insanely awesome content for the wonderful people on LinkedIn and other platforms, but if they're not seeing it or engaging with it...what's the problem? She tells us!
How Well Do You Know Your Customers?
Ever feel like what you're saying to your audience gets lost in the wind?
That they just don't really 'get' it?
You have exactly what they want, down to the minutiae of what they need.
You're practically screaming from the rooftops and all you get back are blank stares.
It's your messaging. You've got the goods, I'm sure of it. But it's not landing with people. It's like you're circling the tarmac and there are no open gates to connect to.
Once you realize what resonates with your audience, your ideal community, you will know how to speak to them in a way that gets your point across and makes them realize how much they need what you've got.
Until then it's like you're speaking underwater.
Join ✒️Claire M. Davis 🖋️, Matt Zaun, and Dan Mott as we discuss how to develop your ideal community profile and how to leverage it in making more genuine connections and $$$$.
How to Create Epic Live Content to Springboard Your Business
Ah, video. To some, it seems super fun, while to others it seems about as fun as sticking a fork in your eye.
The POWER HOUR crew (✒️Claire M. Davis 🖋️, Matt Zaun, Dan Mott, and myself) have embraced (LIVE!) video as the way we connect with you each week on LinkedIn.
Does it take some effort? Yep. I mean, at the very least we need to be showered. ;) But when video is the medium that your audience connects with at a higher level, it is so worth it!
This week's guest, Travis Lachner, taught us how to upgrade our brands "into a media machine". We were super stoked to hear how he leverages video (plus events and podcasts) to grow connection and $$$$.
Leading a Business in the Face of Huge Obstacles
It's January 2020.
Your travel business is HOPPING.
People are booking their summer vacations right and left.
Last minute travel for Spring Break? Sure! Let's do it!
You're thinking - I might even outpace my quarterly goals this year! You start dreaming of ways to reinvest your profits...
On this week's POWER HOUR we had Alexandra Carrier as our guest. Alex was smack dab in the middle of a booming travel industry when the pandemic hit.
She spoke to us on how to lead a business through huge obstacles...and how she shifted to come out the other side.
Positioning Yourself as a Leader in Your Industry
You have something to say and you want to be heard - so many of us have solid ideas, process tweaks, ways to expand upon current company objectives to move closer to the ultimate goal...but we sit.
In that chair over in the corner.
Or with our quick stride down the office hallway (or in our home haha) rather than voicing our opinions.
Rather than developing our voice into one of a leader...taking the seat at the table that is rightfully ours.
No more! This week on POWER HOUR we have the incredible Darine BenAmara. She dives into how to not only ensure you get credit for your hard work and insights but also how to align your work with who you want to be..and get paid a premium while you're at it.

Speaking can be a huge tool in generating leads and increasing your connection with your audience. For those of you working on finding your voice in business (and in life), and want customers to clamor for your offer after hearing you speak...Csilla Muscan will share exactly how to do that.
Speaking Hacks That Stop Listeners in Their Tracks
Public speaking is still a top fear for most people. Yep, people are less afraid of death. Heights. Spiders. Snakes. Closed spaces. Illness.
As always, at POWER HOUR we've got your back. Brenden Kumarasamy takes the mic this week - as a public speaking coach, his goal is to "help ambitious executives and coaches become TOP 1% communicators in their industries" - if that doesn't get your motor running, we don't know what will.
Are Your Thoughts Sabotaging Your Business?
Do you want to step out of stress, overwhelm, and anxiety and into action that matters? When the right words enter our lives, they can ignite a new way of thinking. It can take us from "I can't" to I will!"
