It was at an event a few weeks ago for Black Belt and we’re at after lunch with these guests.

What to Do When Your Client Wants to Cancel After Getting Huge Results

I’ve got a question here from Ben who says, “One week I get a testimonial and the next week they want to leave. When starting out, made a rookie mistake. We didn’t have a commitment length/tie in policy (I’ve now changed that). Do I let them go or try to save? I feel like they’re not telling the truth. They’ve had their result, and then here, want to quit. What should we do?”


What to Do When a Client Wants to Cancel Halfway Through Your Program


I want to have a really real conversation with you about what to do when somebody wants to cancel their membership. They’re a partway through a program with you, but what do you do?

It’s kind of the truth of the thought, isn’t it?

How to Balance Family and Business


One of the mistakes we often make is we go to extremes. We either go all business and neglect family, or we make excuses like, “Oh, I can’t run my business. I can’t grow a business. I can’t really focus on my business because I’ve got a family.” And those are just silly decisions.

How to Keep Your Mastermind Members for Longer Than a Year


In today’s #AskTaki, I’ve got a great question from Emily who asked…

“I need advice on how I can create a culture and understanding my hiring group program that’s a rolling community intended for them to stay a while like in Black Belt. This hasn’t historically been how my programs are being run, but I want to shift this…”

“…I know I can pre-frame this in future sales,

Accountability is overrated. Do this instead.

Hey gang, it’s Taki here.

I’m going to answer a quick question today that was asked by a great client called Isaac. And Isaac asked a little bit about our Boardroom program. Some of the things I obviously can’t share are Boardroom details —it’s like Fight Club.

How to Overcome the ‘I Need to Talk to My Spouse’ Objection

I’ve got a question from Dave who wants to know, “What’s the best way to handle the ‘I need to talk to my spouse’ objection?”

You’ve either got to get the partner who’s present with you to make the decision (in spite of their partner), or you need to somehow get them onboard, but do it in a way that doesn’t doesn’t slow down your sales process.

This has been a crazy week for me.

And I’m sharing this because I’m sure you’ve gone through the same.

And I want to talk about what to do.

Yesterday, I was in the middle of it, and today I’m above it.
