004 - Sales Systems To Qualify and Convert Clients - With Nancy Ganzekaufer
The Turning Lemons Into Lemonade Podcast
This is one of the longest episodes I've recorded yet in Turning Lemons Into Lemonade. I had never met Nancy prior to our recording today, but this conversation was SOOOOOO full of amazing business nuggets. Nancy's Lemons story was based on her content creation strategy. She batch creates content, and unfortunately had a piece of content go out at a time that her clients and prospects found offensive. She told the story of waking up to angry client emails and unsubscribes. She talked about how she tried to reach out and smooth over the miscommunication - but that she eventually realized that there was only so much she could do. Nancy delivered one of the BEST pieces of advice I think a new business owner can get.
30: Professional Passion; The Real Truth with Nancy Ganzekaufer
Love Your 9 to 5
What I love most about this episode is how Nancy's career evolved and took a really unique pattern of twists and turns. We are so accustomed to putting people into boxes or categories that it's so refreshing to see someone really trailblaze their own path in life. Many of us mistakenly assume that our passion and optimal work setting is just that, set. There's one place somewhere that waiting for us to find it and when we get there all the doors of opportunity will open to us. In this episode, Nancy demonstrates how incorrect this is, and our place of passionate productive work changes and evolves as we grow and as our life circumstances change. Enjoy the listen and her wonderful NY accent!!
