You didn't get in to this business because you love to sell. No, when you dreamed of owning your own wedding business, you hoped to help people create beautiful, touching, memory-filled wedding days.
You dreamed of days lounging in sweats, editing work for your website - all while drinking a flat white and petting your cat.
In reality, you're sitting at a make-shift desk in the corner of your bedroom staring at your Mac.
No new prospects and one potential client wants to negotiate.
You have an empty inbox, bills you can't pay, and the nagging feeling that you'll never make this business "work". And then there's that pit in your stomach again.
Sometimes you secretly wonder if you're even worth hiring. And then it happens...
UGH. Your business cannot take another hit. Your relationship with your partner cannot take another hit. And you absolutely 100% cannot tell your parents that you lost another sale. (They already question why they paid for a college education.)
You don't want to return to that 9-5, but that looks like your only option at this point. Tomorrow you'll need to start looking for freelance work - and you're definitely going to have to lower your rates.
What a nightmare.
Are you constantly second-guessing yourself? Constantly blaming the market or some competitor that undercut you?
Constantly living in a stressed out state of worry & angst over whether you have the chops to even be an entrepreneur?
Do you spend all your time and money on marketing efforts - hoping that if you can generate enough leads, you'll scrape by?
You think successful event pros must be natural-born sales people. Sales is the thing you hate most about being in business for yourself. You're not hardwired for sales. It feels so...
It's not like you haven't tried...
You shelled out a bunch of money and months of your time to work with that marketing coach who swore his methods would work for your business.
But his sales advice was slick, aggressive and borderline rude. It didn't fly with your couples - and it certainly didn't work for you.
You attended that 3-day workshop filled with lots of impressive speakers and great info.
But you raced home to a wedding, back-to-back meetings and normal life. And...well...you aren't even sure where those notes are now.
Now, you don't know who or what to trust to teach you. You want a trusted expert - with experience in your industry.
But you wonder if that person even exists.
STOP WONDERING. START SELLING.
The Complete Sales Experience is a step-by-step way for event pros to become CONFIDENT at sales, make more money and still sound like themselves.
More confidence, more money and more than (8) hours of expertly-guided knowledge are mere key strokes away. After the first lesson, you can begin applying your new-found sales skills and start achieving success - one small win at a time.
It's like a workshop, from the comfort of your couch.
Except at this workshop, you can hit pause when you need to run to the bathroom or get another Nespresso.
Stop piecemealing together a sales plan of random podcasts, books & advice. You hate DIY weddings, so why would you think a DIY approach for learning sales would work for your business?
Instead, rely on a proven approach.
Stop listening to bad sales advice from "famous" event pros who made it big once - and start learning from a professional with decades of success in sales & operations.
Stop being pushy, aggressive and awkward and start showing empathy.
Stop educating your customers and start helping them discover the path forward.
Choose The Complete Sales Experience when...
You've got your "big girl" (or boy) pants on and your ready to figure this sh*t out. You've established that those other training programs and tactics don't work for your business.
You know that the DIY approach should be reserved for craft store creations.
Even if you could Google all the answers and cut-and-paste together a roadmap to success, you're not entirely sure you'd be headed in the right direction. And honestly, you know you don't have the time to do all that. (You can barely find the time to watch an old episode of Friends let alone see yours!)
You know that a fancy new Wordpress site or optimized SEO copy isn't going to work either.
Marketing is great for driving leads to your website, but you have no clue what to do once you get them on the phone. And you certainly don't want to continue to blow it when it matters most.

“Sam is one of the best business presenters I have seen I the events industry. He uses his real world experience to help event professionals across the country optimize their pricing strategy, increase sales and create scalable processes. I really appreciate his straight-forward presentation style and storytelling that makes his sessions fun and engaging.” - Julie Roth Novack, PartySlate Founder/CEO
Some experts advocate for pushy closes and hard-arming tactics to force a sale. Others use scarcity and manipulation to convince clients to buy.
Some programs are designed by a "trainer" that hasn't ever sold a wedding or only sold for his or her own, personal brand. What might have worked for one pro, in one market, won't necessarily work for yours.
Other programs require you to attend a workshop and involve time and travel expenses you haven't budgeted for. What's worse, the notes you frantically scribble during the conference end up collecting dust on the shelf.
With these solutions you waste precious resources on solutions that never get implemented or are so off-brand, you don't have the heart to try them.
You'll learn to sell the way you like to buy.
