"I went from
Sales Hater to
Hey! I'm Melissa Marijnen. For more than a decade, I've been successfully offering my training and consultancy services to businesses and organizations.
From PWC, Chamber of Commerce, government, municipalities, Young Capital, RWS, startups, scale-ups, to non-profits.
The biggest mindset shift I've undergone is going from a sales hater to a SALES LOVER.
When I first started my expert business, I despised sales. I truly, deeply hated it!
It all felt so artificial, so commercial. I couldn't remain calm or confident. Instead, my nerves made me feel nauseous and awkward. This led me to become overly pushy and desperate, which only fueled my hatred even more.
But then one magical day....
Haha, no it took many years—years of trial and error, years of learning from the best, and years of building a successful expert business with programs that I genuinely loved.
Throughout this journey, I came to understand that if I wanted my expert business to thrive, I needed to shift from hating sales to loving it.
That's when everything changed. I started selling effortlessly, in a simple and natural manner. And as a result, I began making money effortlessly too.
This financial freedom provided me with a sense of security—a crucial aspect for any coach or trainer. It allowed me to focus on helping my clients wholeheartedly, rather than solely seeking money from them.
Moreover, the financial resources opened doors for my own training and coaching. I could expand my skills, knowledge, and consciousness in ways that wouldn't have been possible otherwise.
Embracing the art of sales has undeniably been the wisest decision I've made, and now, I want to help you do the same.
Together, let's transform your approach to sales and unlock the success you deserve.
What I offer:
consultancies and freelance consultants
with expertise in sustainability, innovation &
to sell their valuable offerings
to businesses and organizations.
Make Sales part of your System
As a small consultancy or freelance consultant it can be though to put yourself out there. Especially when you're also busy with working for your current clients. That is why it is so important to create a habit when it comes to sales actions, like networking, marketing and acquisition. Part of my method is providing accountability for you, so that you will take the necessary actions, so you can increase your impact.
Level Up your Sales Skills
I don't want you to become a sleazy sales person. Because that would not fit your service, and probably also not your personality. But I do want you to know how you can improve your current strategies, and current way of communication. As this will create a more open atmosphere for your potential client to see the benefits of what you have to offer. You will get very practical tools, tips, and even scripts that will help you make it easier to work with you.
Let's develop Client-centric Offerings
It's also time to look at what you have to offer. And mostly take the perspective of your clients. What do they want? And how can you package it as interesting and appealing as possible? What would really help them solve their large problems? It's about being inspiring, so they can take the leap and use your services to accelerate the needed transitions. But also creating low-barrier offerings, so they can get to know you.
