ALL ABOUT MONEY!


A million dollars doesn’t go as far as it used to

Money talk drives agents crazy?
Would you rather talk about ANYTHING other than MONEY?

When I started my business about 35 years ago, there were no ways to “think” about money as a good thing.  Real Estate was inflating at the speed of light, interest rates were sky high, and people were very fearful about money.  Now, all this was happening in a world filled with people who had gone through the 60’s, were hippies or even moving back into society from the communes, and seriously brought up to think that MONEY WAS THE ROOT of ALL EVIL!  That kind of thinking was getting me nowhere.  And I had three kids to put through college!

So, I started looking around for ideas on how to THINK BIG, “Think and Grow Rich!” and Catherine Ponder’s “Dynamic Laws of Prosperity.”  Before you knew it, I got my mind straight about How to THINK about money.  I set myself up with a couple of rules. Laugh if you wish but heed this warning.  If you are afraid of money, or you don’t like it for some reason, or you judge all those who have it as bad in some way…This Doesn’t Work! Set yourself up to start by thinking a little differently about money.  Here are a couple of my rules which helped me a lot to get positive about money. 

Rule # 1 – Money is NOT the Root of all evil.  It is […]

ASK Maureen – Coaches Corner – Fix Push Back

Coaches Corner – Maureen Tzouris PCA Coach Speaks Volumes

Branding Issues and offer-3Agents Push Back!

Dear Maureen, Our company recently went through a corporate restructuring and have installed new compliance requirements. We are now requiring all the agents to brand the company at the end of their calls and this is receiving some push back from the agents. Do you have any suggestions?  ~We-love-our-brand

Thank you so much for your question! This scenario is actually quite common and is experienced by many managers and coaches. First, I would suggest setting some clear expectations so that all agents understand what is being asked of them. Secondly, I would suggest holding small breakout training sessions to include some suggestions on what and how exactly the agent can say to close every call with the branding, perhaps to include role playing. And, lastly– I would recommend sharing this information from the ‘three party promise’ perspective–this is where the company, the customer, and the agent all WIN!

I would explain that:

1) the company would like to brand the close because they are confident that their customers have all been completely satisfied during the call and want to extend and build upon the good faith practices.

2) The customer or member will feel confident that the agent cares about all of their concerns and questions and was handled professionally! (We’re in this together!)

3). The agent can take pride in themselves because they will sound much more professional, well […]

Do you not separate the menu from the meal? Do you know the difference between: What is right? and What Works? Understanding the difference between a gain and a loss can be vital to your training program.

LAMA MAMA “CAVES” to ONLINE Training

Blogging is so much fun!

Hi GANG! My Blog should be called, “if you think you’re so smart, you’ve got another think coming!” Is that too long?
ONLINE TRAINING comes to life!!! Well, the LAMA MAMA rides AGAIN!

Okay all you Bloggers, Sales People, Trainers and Supervisors, I love you and have finally been talked into putting my training online! I know, I don’t how this will work but you are invited to participate.
The training starts in March and I am hustling to get ten companies on board to see if this will be a huge success. I’m scared, too. Tag National suggested it about a year and a half ago but I guess I just couldn’t’ get behind it since I can’t see your beautiful faces. I have finally “caved” when I heard a small business lose a customer while I was waiting for service the other day. Small businesses just don’t have access to the type of training we provide for these big top 100 companies. Still, I think they are the backbone of our country.

February, I will be hard at work during the month creating training programs for them on line for practically no money at all. It will be like a small phone bill or something like that, and sooooo affordable.

The trick is getting the word out. You can help me there. Please let your friends […]
