    Ninja Sales Techniques

    Do you need to be more effective at doing sales?

    Whether your revenue is shy of goals or doing sales creates unease for you, for many entrepreneurs, "sales" is a 4 letter word.

    In my upcoming class, "Ninja Sales Techniques", I help entrepreneurs become more effective at doing sales by demystifying it, breaking it down into manageable steps, and offering techniques and tips on how non-salespeople can be successful at doing sales. At the end of the course, you'll leave with a much better understanding of sales, be able to create an effective sales plan, and increase your confidence in doing sales.

    This 4-week class begins on 2/3, meets at the PCC Climb Center (by OMSI) for 2 hours each week and is part of the SBDC's Entrepreneur's Skill Series. For more information and to register please visit:

    If you have little or no experience in doing sales but are responsible for bringing in the revenue, then this class is for you!
