philosophy

We believe that Expert Entrepreneurs should be billing 70% of their time, spending 20% of their time studying to remain an expert in their industry and 10% of their time moving all the pieces around. When we make sales and marketing a natural by-product of our study time we remain inspired and fulfilling our purpose.
Sales conversations are an opportunity to help a prospect fully understand the extent of their problem and offer valuable solutions. If a prospect can implement the solution by themselves they should do so. We only want to take on the clients that really need us to transform their situation and will receive a clear return on investment.
The goal of an Expert is to solve meaningful problems for their clients, taking them from where they are now to where they need to get to. They may not have all the answers or know all the variables, but they have the experience to know how to navigate the course and stick with the client until they arrive at the destination.

  • Cultivated a new marketplace where prospects only want to work with you
  • Create attractive packages your prospects will want to buy that also meet your financial outcomes and fulfil you
  • Script sales conversations so they feel natural and lead to the right outcome; whether that is to work with you or recommend you
  • Craft content that speaks directly to your prospects at each stage of their buying journey
  • Position yourself, so you no longer compete on price and you’re the only person your prospect wants to work with.

About NAOMI JOHNSON

Having started her business using LinkedIn, Naomi quickly shot to fame as a LinkedIn expert, writing LinkedIn profiles for business owners, thought-leaders, executives and sales teams.

Beginning her business with absolutely no notice, Naomi had to quickly establish her business to make her rent within two weeks.

By her fourth month she was operating at full capacity and by month five, she won Oracle as a client.

Having reviewed and written hundreds of LinkedIn profiles while in conversation with the profile owner, Naomi noticed that most people's businesses are not structured in a way that will allow them to easily win them business and meet their income targets. Having been in this position herself and writing her book Grassroots to Green Shoots in 2010, Naomi knows first hand the trouble this can cause and is on a mission to help others avoid the same fate.
