2:00 pm: Dean Carlson: Climbing Out Of The Crowd: How do you stand out in a sea of DJ mediocrity? We have all been there at one point or another – wondering exactly what steps are needed to reach the goals that Dean has set for himself and his company. For years the message has been that we just need to charge this or that. Maybe we have self-detonated our own plans with the lies we tell ourselves, like “not in my market”, or we have been to seminars, read books and watched DVDs that have just the bits and pieces…but not a step by step plan. Well, this seminar is for you. Not only will Dean share how he has gotten to where he is today, but he will be offering a map to that plan and how to convey your true worth to potential clients.

5:00 pm: Mitch Taylor: How to Overcome the 7 Hurdles We Face in Business: *With the Top 3 Hurdles Chosen by YOU! In this truly unique seminar, you – the audience – will determine the content that is presented! In years of coaching and training hundreds of service-based industry small business owners Mitch has discovered that there are 7 hurdles that we all seem to face as we grow our businesses. Do you struggle with sales? Cash flow? Employees? It’s all here! At the start of the session attendees will vote and Mitch will present on the top 3 most-requested business hurdles. Through a combination of personal stories, tangible ideas and action steps that you will implement immediately, you will be on your way to overcome the biggest challenges you face in your business.

6:00 pm: Ross Akselrad: Ross runs a very successful DJ business and photo booth company. If you are thinking about adding a photo booth to your DJ company, Ross is the guy who will give you the tips on what it takes to make this company addition successful.

1:00 pm – 4:00 pm: Jason Jones: The Sales Conversation: The Workshop Master Class: Conversations drive everything.  Nothing existed with out a conversation.  It is our ability to convey meaning and motivation that makes everything happen.  It’s also the ability to align realities that make everything possible from leading a movement or team to selling a product or idea.  This is something that you would expect we would have extensive training and development on since it is so crucial to financial success.  Yet with the knowledge we have gained from research in psychology and behavioral, social and brain science we have discovered that some of the most essential communication behaviors of successful selling are not being taught.

In this three hour workshop we will give you a new understanding of your buyer and how to sell to them the way they like to buy.  We will show you what is required to influence someone's thinking and how to navigate the conversation with clarity and confidence.  We will give you the tools to continuously improve your ability to make more sales while creating amazing buying experiences.
