Stop Sucking at Sales Starting Today with This Mini Sales Training EP120

My second favorite 5-letter word is one that most of you hate.

S-A-L-E-S…..What do you think my #1 favorite 5-letter word is?

There are so many negative vibes around the word sales; the idea of sales, and the process of sales….yet sales is what makes our world economy function. Sales are what allow cures for diseases to be discovered. Sales are what rebuild homes after natural disasters. Sales are what put food in your family’s mouths.

Here’s the thing, every one of you are always selling whether you know it or not. Every time you step foot into work you are selling, in the form of representing your personal brand in your appearance, behavior, choice of words, and quality of work.

Every time you volunteer to help a non-profit or a school to raise funds, you are selling.

Every time you show up on social media you are selling. You are choosing (usually carefully) what you show the world about you and your life.

Every time you negotiate with your significant other or your children to get your needs met or to get them to eat their veggies, YOU-ARE-SELLING!

So then why is it when you need to sell, promote, influence in order to make money in your business, do you get it all uncomfortable, awkward, and low vibe?

It’s because you have some belief (buried or not) that selling is wrong, selling is dirty, selling is slimy, selling is sketchy, and selling is sleazy…likely it is something you were told or taught in childhood. Perhaps you had some bad experiences with slimly sales people at parties or within your own family (I know I have!!!).

In order to run a successful business, network marketing team, non-profit organization, or to get that promotion at work, we need to get you comfortable in your relationship with selling.

Let’s rip off the Band-Aid and start today. I’m giving you (for FREE) a mini-sales training on today’s podcast. Teaching you how to stop sucking at sales.

Welcome to ProjectME the Podcast with your host Tiffany Carter, who takes the mystery out of making BIG money. A former NBC and CBS TV journalist, turned multi-millionaire entrepreneur, teaching you all things wealth, health, worth, and business.

Are You Listening To Your Clients?

A former asshole boss of mine pointed out a HUGE mistake, that was preventing me from meeting my sales goals.

Of course he didn’t spare my feelings by presenting it delicately. I’m thrilled he didn’t, as I may not have heard him so clearly.

After a ride-along (something sales managers do in the pharmaceutical industry), my boss turned to me in the parking lot and said, “when all you do is talk, there is no way you are learning anything about your customer….plus it’s overwhelming and annoying.” 😳😳😳.

My lord, I felt so deflated, embarrassed, and stupid. I immediately understood his point, I just needed some time to soothe my broken ego.

It’s funny because as a TV journalist, I did little talking as my job was to ask questions and get the subject to talk. When I changed careers in to sales, for some reason I thought I was to do most of the talking. So I went back into my reporter mode, and the results were amazing.

My customers (all well-known doctors), became my friends, confided in me, shared their frustrations and needs. All because I shut the hell up, and allowed them the space to share. Plus I felt less exhausted as the end of the day. Doing all the taking, all the time is draining AF.

After my boss word-smacked me, I exceeded every sales goal to this very day.

Start asking your potential customers and current clients open ended questions. Not yes and no questions. Ask them: “how can I best meet your needs?” “What resources and materials do you value the most?” “What problem in your life, would you be thrilled to have solved?”

Then shut the hell up and allow them to answer. Even if there’s a looooong pause (these use to be so painful for me).

What To Do When the People in Your Life Don’t Fully Support or Understand Your Dreams and Desires, How to Help Get Them on Board, and Who to Remove from Your Life, with Guest, Dr. Morgan Anderson, Clinical Psychologist and Relationship Coach EP119

One of the biggest challenges ambitious dreamers face is building their dreams with little to no support from the people in their lives. Sometimes the people in our lives who are supposed to support us the most become our biggest roadblocks to achieving our dreams.

I remember when I started telling the humans in my life that I was going to start a business on the side while working in my pharmaceutical sales career, and as soon as I could match my salary I was going to quit and leave that corporate grind behind.

Wow! I wasn’t expecting what came out of the people’s mouths that “loved me.” All but one person close to me were in total resistance and negativity about me going after my dream to be financially free AF working for my self. And I wasn’t even asking them for a dime!!!!!

Obviously I went after my dreams anyway but I would be lying if I told you it didn’t slow me down and make me doubt my self a little.

I have a relentless personality, and I know not everyone is wired this way…. so this type of negative response and lack of support form loved ones stops millions of women from going after their dreams every day. And I’m fucking sick of it!

So I brought on a doctor and relationship coach to teach us all how to navigate the people in our lives who are negative and unsupportive.

Dr. Morgan Anderson is a California licensed clinical psychologist and relationship coach specializing in couples therapy and interpersonal relationships.

She helps people get the relationship they want by giving them the tools they need to understand their patterns in relationships, as well as build the self-worth that attracts healthy intimate partnerships.

Manifesting With Vision Boards

MAJOR proof that manifesting really does work! To be clear, my method of manifesting that I learned from the best teachers.

My primary vision board (on the left), is where I put #allthethings that I want to bring into my life quickly and easily. I updated this board approx 6 months prior to meeting my now fiancé, 1.5 years after I created this board, (he never saw this until recently when I hung these up at our new home) Mike proposed to me on the beaches of Turks and Caicos with a stunning ring 💍 in a little blue @tiffanyandco box. Yes, the ring is from there too, not just the box 😝.

Also, I made enough excess cash in my business to buy all of the rest of the items on my board and then some. My point in sharing this part of the story is to remind you that manifesting isn’t always literal. Also, I didn’t put a time frame on meeting my Mr. Right; I trusted the Universe’s timing and the “how.”

The board on the right right is focused on how I would feel having everything on the first vision board. 2 years after I updated this “feelings” board, we found a house that matched the exact vibe I manifested. I knew it the second I walked in the front door. On top of that, living with him is extremely chill, TRANQUIL, and relaxing. Something extremely vital to my soul and success.

Be sure to place your vision boards or board, somewhere high-vibe that you see many times per day. Each day I walked by mine, I would send a quick blessing to them, often showing a slight nod or a wink 😉. Symbolizing that I trusted and knew the Universe was working its magic to deliver all of this to me and then some.

Now it’s time to update my boards.@manifestationbabe has an interesting technique, to keep some things on your board that already manifested into your life. Reminding you that this works. I’m going to incorporate this suggestion 🙏.

We aren’t in control of the how or the timing. Just have faith that a power greater than you is creating your vision. Most often it shows up even better than what I manifested.

The Difference Between a Poverty Mindset and a Wealth Mindset, Learn the Shifts You Need to Make EP118


Being broke isn’t from a lack of resources, it is from a broke mindset.

Many people’s eyes glaze over when they hear me talk about how money is made in the mind first and in the pocket second.

And about 12 years ago I would have been right there with you…even rolling my eyes or walking out of the room (this actually happened at a Zig Zigler event hosted by a former employer).

The resistance to believing that a wealthy mind is required to achieve and maintain great wealth is exactly why you don’t have it yet….and if you do, just a warning, you are going to lose it all like I did, if you don’t get your mind right.

I had a solid million dollars in the bank by the time I was 30 years old. I remember seeing those 7-figures for the first time, it was kinda cool but that feeling only lasted about 30 seconds before my stomach started churning and I started feeling anxious and uncomfortable.

Within 3 months almost all of it was gone! My lifetime of working long hours, grinding, and saving…..vanished. I was in shock and then I was in shame.

To hear about what happened, how I dealt with it, and how I was able to earn it all back and then some, listen to today’s podcast episode. You will feel like you are listening to a crazy-ass movie, but this movie was my life and this story will likely change yours.

Envision A Life You Love

What would your life feel and look like, if you were doing what you love and making great money from it?

It feels freeing, exhilarating, fun, dreamy, empowering, and scary too. When we finally get what we prayed for, asked for, worked for, and manifested, it can seem too good to be true. Doubts can creep in like, “how long can this really last for?” “I made thousands for a couple of months, but will I continue to?”

These doubts are normal. It’s our own egos way of trying to protect us and keep us safe. To our ego, doing something different is risky and therefore potentially dangerous, even when the results are awesome. How many of you have lost weight or got more fit, only to doubt how long you will really keep it off? Even though you feel better than ever, it’s new to your ego, therefore it’s on guard to protect you.

Don’t tell that ego driver voice to STFU! That doesn’t work (I’ve tried that many times). Gently and lovingly, thank that voice for its concern and wanting to protect you. Let it know, this is a good change and that you are safe, secure, and supported.

At first, you will need to comfort the ego numerous times a day (much like a sensitive overtired toddler), over time the voice will go from a scream to a whisper, to nothing at all on that subject (the ego will move onto something new you’re doing…annoying but true).

Grow Your Business and Your Bank Account without Burning Out, Hustling, or Grinding Your Life Away, with Guest, Michelle Sorro, Extra TV Host, Media Strategist, and Popular Podcaster EP117


You’re exhausted aren’t you? The endless task lists, the constant content creation, the sales calls, the kids, the spouse, the gym, the store, the hair, the brows, the nails…it is all so much!!!

Even if you are doing things you truly love, those things can lead to burnout and being stressed out too. I know for me, this had me thinking at one point, “I was actually less stressed and had more of a life when I was an employee and miserable, what the hell did I do?!!!!!”

Seriously you guys, I felt more trapped and strapped of energy as a successful entrepreneur than I ever did as an employee.

When we get in this anxious, and in a go-go-go state it’s difficult to see that there is another way to go about this whole conquering our dreams thing. Let’s be real, no one taught us in school or any job we’ve had how to be successful by working less and going slow. We were taught and encouraged to do exactly the opposite: hustle, grind and repeat.

News Flash! There is a kinder, gentler, more joyful way to achieve your business and financial dreams. On today’s podcast my friend Michelle Sorro and I are going to tell you all about it.

Michelle is a Transformation Activist and Media Strategist. She’s the Founder of Live Video Mastery Academy, TV Host, Speaker, and host of The Fire and Soul podcast, a Top 10 in the Self-Help category.

She created the world’s largest Facebook Live Challenge with nearly 1400 people crushing their comfort zone and putting themselves on live video every single day. Her mission is to help message driven entrepreneurs master an impactful, authentic message that gets epic, measured results.

Change Is Necessary For Growth

We so often want to feel and look differently. We want to have more money, more fun, a better job, a different career, a better partner…BUT what have you done differently to get a different outcome?

“Tiffany I started eating better this week;” “I signed up for your ProjectME mentorship;” “I started saving money two months ago.” I hear these painful statements all week long. Taking new action and changing your ways is exactly what must happen to get a different result. However, so is long-term consistency.

Just because you ate healthy all week or even all month, won’t reverse diabetes or even change your dress size. Nor will saying money for a few months get you out of debt. These changes in behavior and habits need to be long-term, lifetime changes, to reap the results.

There are a lot of “get results fast” 💩 marketing campaigns out there, targeting the millions of people who want to undo years of self-limiting behaviors/habits in 30 days. THEY DON’T WORK. They just make people who sell it, a shit-ton of money, while leaving you defeated.

If you want massive results, then massive change is required. You can build up to that, versus shocking your system and your life. I would rather see you taking small steps every day towards new self-empowering behavior; this has a much higher chance of you sticking with it and reaching your goals.

Patience my loves. Transformation takes time + consistency. It’s totally worth it!

Wednesday Wisdom: Procrastination

We have something important to discuss on Wednesday Wisdom with Tiff. Something that is a dirty little secret most entrepreneurs and successful people don’t discuss, as there’s a sense of shame around this behavior.

The behavior I’m referring to is PROCRASTINATION.

✋ Hi I’m Tiffany and I struggle with procrastination. There I said it!

I work with and I’m friends with many 6 and 7 figure earners, who are top in their field, who struggle with procrastinating. It wasn’t until I became vulnerable and shared my personal struggle with them, that they opened up and shared their own issues with procrastinating. So first off, just know you are not alone, and this behavior can be managed.

The 3 P’s: Perfection, Procrastination, Paralysis.

WHY do so many of us do this stressful behavior? Experts say it boils down to perfectionism. We want to do everything right and perfect; when there’s a lot of tasks to do, that becomes overwhelming AF. This cues the Paralysis. Also shows up as “writers’ block,” “brain fog,” “mentally exhausted,” “spaced out.” I used all of these terms, until I recently learned what they are code for. We get so overwhelmed, that we basically freeze.

I’m dedicating a ProjectME podcast (launching soon) to this topic, as we need to bring procrastination out of the dark. I believe the negative stigma around the behavior creates shame, which only keeps us in Paralysis.

So just for today, know that you are not alone; you are not lazy or incompetent or whatever crap thing you tell yourself when you’re frustrated with this tricky behavior. Often times “good is good enough,” for many tasks. Trying to accomplish everything at 1000% is totally unrealistic, and it doesn’t work.

What Changed in My Life as I Grew Financially from 5 Figures to 6 Figure to 7 Figures, I Guarantee It’s Not What you Think! EP116


Let’s take a peek behind the curtain of what it’s like to be a multi-millionaire entrepreneur.

I know you are curious because this is one of the top requested topics to cover on my podcast.

TV is filled with reality shows like the “Kardashians,”  and “Housewives of Beverly Hills,” because people are fascinated with seeing how the rich live and how they acquired all that cash.

Although no one’s story is the same, there are some common things that change with the amount of success and wealth you achieve.

I like to take the mystery out of making BIG money, because truly anyone can do it regardless of your education, background, personality, or looks. Millionaire status isn’t reserved for just the privileged, the select few, or the chosen ones. It is YOURS if you want and if you believe it is your birthright to have great abundance in your life.

Join me on today’s podcast episode, where I will take you through my journey as I climbed (often times crawled) from making 17-thousand dollars a year to having millions in the bank today. You will walk away knowing that you have this in you too, if you deeply desire it.
