I cannot tell you how much it means to have the PRES Staging Resource Centre and you Dana as a resource. As a new stager I love to actually stage but with your assistance I don’t have to “reinvent the wheel” when it comes to forms and contracts. You have done it perfectly and because I am a “PRES Graduate” I am the fortunate one to be able to tap into your system. I not only have you as a resource to contact when I need it but I have all the other PRES Stagers who are not competitors but associates. Thank you for that. THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

- Cheryl Grattan, With Flair Home Staging and Redesign

Within a few months of finishing my training with Dana J. Smithers I have had a number of staging consultations and one move in consultation. All were done with great success and the clients along with their realtors were thrilled. They were especially grateful for the follow up reports which they received within 24 hrs. of my consultations. This is all thanks to the terrific course and excellent instruction I received from Dana. Thanks so much Dana!

- Christine Dempster, Stage Right Home Staging

Yes you CAN dissolve the fear of selling!

“Is it really possible to feel comfortable with selling Dana?”

I’ve been fielding questions like this all week since announcing my free call coming up this Thursday on relationship selling.

I know you’re skeptical, especially if you relate “selling” to dealing with pushy call-center salespeople who don’t know who you are and are trying to sell you something you don’t want. Or those in-your-face salespeople who start telling you everything they have on sale when all you wanted to do was have a quiet look around and make your own decisions about buying!

I assure you there are better, more effective ways to sell your product or service — I guarantee it! Relationship selling is by far the easiest form of sales . . . but . . . as mentioned previously, it needs to be done with the right tools, know-how and preparation in order for it to be effective.

Join my FREE CALL Take the Fear Out Of Selling or would you rather poke your eyes out with needles?

Would you rather poke your eyes with needles than to have to be a “sales person” in your business? You are not alone; I know how much entrepreneurs really dislike selling.

Most people hate the word “selling” which results in a loss of major revenues every year because they are afraid to offend someone or don’t want to face rejection when they ask for the sale.

I’ve heard it hundreds of times from my PRES Home Staging & Redesign students and I used to hear it all the time in corporate when I was the Sales Manager.

In fact I hear this so much that I am hosting a FREE one-time only teleseminar specifically on this subject in order to give you valuable information you need to know on this topic at 6 p.m. Pacific on Thursday, September 8, 2011…
