Learn WHY we do this!
I am a serial entrepreneur and a product of 2 entrepreneurial parents. Small business is in my DNA. This is also why I am so passionate about helping other entrepreneurs. I know all too well how much time, energy, and money it takes to run a small business.
I am a self-proclaimed 'sales & marketing geek'. My first business was a sales training company that I ran for 11 years. My sweet spot is the blending of sales & marketing with technology. In other words, how to use technology to increase your sales and marketing effectiveness.
Over the years, I have have worked with a wide variety of software systems. I'm a bit of a software junkie. The problem I consistently ran into was that to build the 'perfect' system, I had to duct tape together a variety of software to make it all work. Which inevitably ends up being an expensive Frankenstein-like monster. That's why I went on a quest to find a program that combined all the pieces I needed into one package. Unfortunately, it didn't exist.
On my quest, I stumbled upon and then partnered with an amazing team of developers to create the software I've been looking for. Then, I quickly realized that I wasn't the only one looking for it. I introduced a number of my friends, who introduced their friends...
So, here we are, a few years later and we now have a software program that has been specifically designed to incorporate the tools that a small service-based business needs, that is easy-to-use and at an affordable price. I encourage you to book a Discovery Session with me and check it out
In March of 2020, during my freshman year of college at Winona State University, the pandemic hit and everything changed. We adapted to online classes, giving speeches over zoom, and not seeing our friends. Time passed slowly over the start of quarantine and I realized that online school was not my thing.
Instead of working in a restaurant over the summer, putting myself and loved ones at risk, I decided to help my mother, Melissa, at Cultivating Sales.
What started out as mindless tasks and busy work soon developed into a love and passion for helping our clients and seeing the smile on my mothers face as I excelled so quickly with the software.
Now, at 19 years old, I am the Manager of Projects and Operations at Cultivating Sales. I help clients with obstacles they run into, host workshops for in-depth training, and design & complete projects for clients. Most of whom are too busy being successful from our system and cannot find the time to do it themselves.
A little note about our tagline.
Marketing is how you make new Connections.
Conversations is how you move those connections through your sales pipeline.
Currency is the value both parties receive.
No tricky closes or smarmy tactics. A successful sales person is a problem solver who builds relationships. A profession to be proud of!
