    Speaker’s Selected Speaking Topics:

    • F.O.C.U.S. Framework: 5 Steps to Faster Sales Results! – Building your business into a smooth-running, consistent income-generating machine these days takes the implementation of many business, mindset, and marketing strategies. Some of which are basic and foundational in nature, yet many entrepreneurs skip over them in hopes of growing faster which is a mistake. If you don’t at least do the basics of what works and what will bring you results, then you’ll just be spinning your wheels over and over again not seeing the income you want (or deserve!). In this age of virtual-run businesses, you need to shift what you’re doing to stay in business or open up and learn these new skills required to sustain yourself and thrive. In this presentation you will learn how to design your business around the kind of life you want to live, incorporating your ideal lifestyle vision and big money goals. You’ll learn where to spend your energy, resources, and time to see the financial results you’re hoping for quicker. And how to effectively maximize this online, virtual world we’re living in and still do the kind of business that you are passionate about.
    • Jumpstart Your Sales – One-on-One or Online – Now more than ever you may want to look at learning how to get better at “booking” and “closing” sales conversations. Whether you’re leaving the house or not, some of your prospects and clients may not be leaving the house as much right now. This means less in-person networking events, less coffee dates, and less clients to do one-on-one sessions with “in person” but you can still do plenty of one-on-one sales conversations and calls on Zoom or other conference lines. It’s time to stop the doom and gloom attitude if you are experiencing that and learn what you need to do to MAKE MORE SALES during this time (or anytime). That could mean that you need to DO THINGS DIFFERENTLY. Either way, there are plenty of people out there buying right now (Yes, even YOUR products, programs and services too!). Attendees will learn how to book more appointments and 1on1 sales conversations via email, zoom, social media and from anywhere, conduct effective and results-oriented conversations for “Collaborations & Connecting” (I call them “Get-to-Know-Ya” calls), and take prospects through that 1on1 sales conversation much more easily, more authentically yet with more assertiveness and strategy so you can actually get more people to say YES to you.
    • Marketing Basics for Consistent Cash Flow – Are You Finally Ready to Learn EXACTLY What to Do AND HOW to Do It in Regards to Getting More Clients in Your Business? We’re talking about marketing and selling in your business. These are, after all, the two most CRITICAL activities that ANY small business owner (or sales professional in ANY industry) needs to learn and GET REALLY GOOD AT DOING! Maybe you know a lot of the WHAT to do in your marketing, sales and your business…. but what’s missing is the HOW. In this presentation you will learn how to tweak what you’re selling to make sure you hit your money goals every month, the 3 types of marketing every small business owner needs to be focusing on for consistent revenue generation, and how to delegate much of your marketing plus time-saving techy tools to help you.
    • How to Make Fast Cash with Easy YES Offers! – This presentation is designed for entrepreneurs, small business owners, independent contractors, speakers and anyone who needs to meet a lot of people and build relationships in order to promote and increase their business. Marketing these days is useless without building quality relationships with your clients, prospects, referral sources and contacts.  Making offers is a key component to building those relationships. You can do this if you’re a speaker or doing a speaking presentation or in your day-to-day sales conversations and connecting with prospects in person or online. Most entrepreneurs are NOT prepared to make a sale and take money “on the spot” at live networking events however, unless they ARE the speaker so this information will arm you with the keys to doing this on a daily basis wherever you go no matter what.
    • Maximize Your Follow Up For Million Dollar Results – ADMIT IT….You have a stack of business cards sitting on your desk of people you want to follow up with BUT HAVEN’T. • I know this because 99% of all the small business owners out there are making the same mistakes. You do realize that you’re missing out on a TON OF SALES and probably a few referral source opportunities too? • Who knows, all that LACK of FOLLOW UP could have brought you an extra $1000, $2000 or even $5000 in revenues this month! • So, stop doing the things that AREN’T BRINGING IN THE BUCKS and learn what tasks you should be spending time on instead.
    • Love Yourself Successful – The Missing Link to Complete Happiness in Life – Do you feel like you’re stuck in your business and you’re not sure why? ➢ Wonder why you aren’t making the kind of revenue you thought you would make? ➢ Not sure how to get new clients or more referrals regularly and consistentl Regardless what type of financial situation you’re in, many entrepreneurs struggle because of lack of love in their life….love and support for or by a significant other, love and confidence in yourself or love for life or your business in general. All the marketing, systems & planning may not be able to help you if you’re not happy in your personal life.
    • Put Your Small Business on Autopilot and Watch Your Profits Skyrocket! – Are you constantly struggling in your business or working way too hard for not enough profits? Want to find out how to work less in your business and make more? If you’re like many entrepreneurs, you’re probably: • Not earning as much as you thought you would by now • Not enjoying enough time off with loved ones • Working much harder than you have to or want to When you automate, delegate and systematize more things in your business, you can see massive results!
    • Relationship Marketing Strategies To Double Your Business and More! – In this world of Internet marketing, building relationships with your prospects, referral sources and as many people as you can meet and add to your database is your most important marketing strategy. As a business owner or entrepreneur, if you are NOT marketing to those people who know you and have already done business with you then YOU ARE MISSING OUT ON A LOT OF SALES! Learn how to easily increase your database, market effectively to your database and to your unique target market with easy to implement strategies without breaking the bank.
    • Building Your List with Your Website – Web Design Secrets and Strategies Your Web Designer Doesn’t Discuss With You! – Are you wondering if your current site is getting traffic, converting traffic or working for you at all to help you get more clients? Are you building a new site for your business and not sure really where to start or who to go to have help you? The # 1 thing your website should be doing for you if you are a small business owner or entrepreneur is… Bringing in Qualified Leads and Building Your List.
    • How to Design Your Talk to Make Everyone Want What You’ve Got to Offer – There are lots of speakers out there talking about all kinds of different topics. What makes YOU different? How can you stand out among others who do what you do? If you’re doing speaking presentations already or even if you’ve never done a single one, this presentation will give you some fresh new ideas to get noticed and get booked. Designing what to talk about is an art and a skill because you want to know your overall goal from what you want out of the exposure before you figure out what you want to say.

    • What Does It Mean to Swim Upstream?

    Many things stick out in my journey from hometown hero to homeless, world-class gold medalist despite having a limiting disability. My road to greatness started when I was nine years old. As a “Differently Abled” person, I found myself being left out of events, overlooked, and under picked. To say it caused inner trauma would be putting it mild. I learned to cope by escaping into swimming, which can be a team sport or an individual one. I found myself at the YMCA in Waxahachie almost daily. Once I discovered the water, I was naturally drawn to it. Once the staff at the Y saw I loved to swim, they encouraged, empowered, and enabled me to train and blossom into that youth capable enough to capture a spot on the Special Olympics team. There are varying levels of competitiveness involved, and one of the underlying reasons for their existence is to assist athletes that are disadvantaged for any number of reasons. My blindness afforded me the opportunity of competing as a swimmer for the organization.
    I’ve had the privilege of competing in the World Games, Dubai and in Seattle, at a National US Games. It is a unique honor and I am truly blessed to have accomplished that feat, which is especially amazing since I am a legally blind African-American female. I just published a book called Swimming UPSTREAM. I host my Keep Swimming With Ashton podcast and join as a guest on many other shows and podcasts. I’m currently seeking opportunities as a public speaker.
