25 minuten 1-op-1 met Nisandeh

Je hebt een heel goede keuze gemaakt door je aan te melden voor het Hot Seat Event met Nisandeh Neta

Breaking News! – Brian Tracy


Het is ons gelukt een heel speciale gast naar dit evenement te halen. Niemand minder dan Brian Tracy is erbij. De internationale bestselling auteur, succes expert en high-performance goeroe zal dit evenement nóg meer cachet geven met een exclusieve trainingssessie. En dat bovenop het unieke optreden van Nisandeh in de 1-op-1 Hot Seat coachingsessies.

Het Hot Seat Event is bedoeld voor ondernemers die 100% gecommitteerd zijn aan het succes van hun business. Ondernemers die de waarheid onder ogen durven te zien. Ondernemers die bereid zijn inzichten en oplossingen te implementeren, whatever it takes.

Of jij je nu weet te kwalificeren voor een plek op het podium of niet, het concrete en krachtige advies dat Nisandeh geeft, de vragen die hij stelt en de antwoorden van de Hot Seat kandidaten helpen zowel de kandidaten op het podium als de deelnemers in de zaal.

En nu is de grote vraag…

Hoe verdien jij een 1-op 1 coaching met Nisandeh?

In een 1-op-1 Hot Seat sessie van 25 minuten komt Nisandeh tot de kern van jouw grootste uitdagingen en creëert hij oplossingen op maat. Door gebruik te maken van zijn ervaring in het helpen groeien van duizenden ondernemingen. En zijn unieke business-brein dat hij tientallen jaren heeft getraind om jou maximaal van dienst te kunnen zijn.

Bovendien, Nisandeh ‘s ‘Hot Seat leermeester’ is de uitvinder van het concept, Jay Abraham – de nummer 1 Marketing goeroe uit de Verenigde Staten.

Hieronder zie je een korte impressie van Jay aan het werk.

We hebben gekozen voor een video van zijn leermeester Jay, omdat persoonlijke 1-op-1 sessies met Nisandeh zeldzaam zijn en nooit voor vertoning zijn gefilmd. Maar degenen die Nisandeh in actie hebben gezien tijdens de Master Entrepreneur 2014 zijn laaiend enthousiast:

“In de extra hot seat sessie na de Master Entrepreneur benoemde Nisandeh voor ondernemers uit elke branche de passie, de positionering en de juiste boodschap voor de target audience. Bijzonder en waardevol! Blij dat ik daarvoor ben gebleven.” – Anne-Tjerk Mante

“Hoewel ik niet zelf op het podium kwam, heeft Nisandeh mij enorm geholpen om mijn eigen visie krachtig te formuleren. Dankjewel!” – Suzanna van der Laan

“Thank you, thank you for the GREAT hot seat session! Just thinking about it fills me with adrenaline even now.” – Kria Djoyoadhiningrat

Hoe kwalificeer jij je voor een persoonlijke 1-op-1 met Nisandeh?

Je kunt Nisandeh ELKE business uitdaging voorleggen. Laat hem jou helpen met wat voor jou actueel is. Of het nu gaat over het bepalen van je doelgroep, je prijsbeleid, je marketingplan, je social media aanpak – wat dan ook. Krijg eindelijk duidelijkheid en zekerheid over wat je moet doen om je business succesvol te laten groeien.

Bedenk je dat je je kandidaat stelt voor een transformatie proces waar mensen tienduizenden euro’s voor betalen.

What a great opportunity to attend this event and I am eager to be in the seat and also hear the sessions with other entrepreneurs. My answers:

1. I am a business coach and counsellor for 45plus professionals. Related branches are: outplacement, reintegration and career switch (employees). This is where most of my clients come from. I focus on male professionals who want to start their own business or male zzp/freelance workers who want to work more as an entrepreneur.

2. Since I chose for male professionals as TA, I have more male clients. They recognize themselves in my communication to the market. At the same time, half of my clients are females. They find me anyway, recognize themselves as well or come via referrals.

Sometimes I hesitate, will I drop the focus on the men and just choose 45-plus professionals, men and women? Is this narrow enough together with my products, background, experience and marketing? Male professionals in this age is a difficult TA because of ego and their conviction they ‘should’ and can help themselves. On the other hand, I plan to be more present live, via the book I am writing and organizing events. A book and event are much more remarkable when I choose for only the men.

The other challenge is my back and front end. Front end:
– free profile checks on the social media
– free training basic LinkedIn profile
– half an hour intake by telephone
– free e-mail coaching during one day
– free documents on tips, blogarticles

Back End:
– coaching/sparring for investigating feasibility entrepreneurship
– business coaching on starting a business
– complete program from A to Z to start a business
– advanced training LinkedIn profile
– online coaching sessions via e-mail or Skype

3. The value of this session is thousands of euro’s as it is Nisandeh. I am willing to pay Euro 750.

4. I am totally committed. I worked on my visibility with succes, implemented slowly but steady a lot of the content of the 20 trainings I followed in OCA. Struggling on finding time for the book, the online course of Rich Schefren, writing articles, publishing in newspapers but I really want to go to the next level. And yes, I am open to joint ventures, delegating and outsourcing.

Wow, a second change! Thank you, Nisandeh. Because I want to be there, on that stage!

• In welke branche ben je werkzaam? (En beschrijf in een paar zinnen je business)

I help professionals and entrepreneurs in spreading their message and reaching their target audience with their book. Because writing a book in the right way will not only help them to become the expert, it will also help them bring focus and vision in their company.

I have a training company together with two partners (which I met at Business Bootcamp!) where we help small entrepreneurs with writing their book, publishing it (either self-published, or via a traditional publisher) and promoting it effectively.
Our uniquely combined 50 years of experience on all of these subject and the tremendous joy we get from working with this TA and helping them realize their dream is why we have our heart set on making this company big.

• Wat is jouw grootste uitdaging met betrekking tot de 3 onderwerpen?
Since defining TA and positioning is also part of our expertise, I think we are pretty well on track with that. However, creating an effective funnel, with remarkable front-end and back-end products, that is a whole new ballgame! We’ve spend a lot of time in developing our programs, and those who get in are enthusiastic. Especially our top product is valued highly. However, it is very hard to convince our TA of why they need it. We can help so many with it!
We give free webinars, write weekly blogposts (now for 1,5 years!) and sent newsletters. Because of that, we are already recognized as experts in our field by many others who are in the writing- or publishing business. Even one of the largest booksellers in NL has made an appeal on our expertise to help out.
Yet, convincing our TA takes a lot more… Like an offer no one can resist, a mindblowing front-end and a back-end funnel where no one will even consider getting out of…

• Wat is deze 1-op-1 sessie met Nisandeh je waard en hoeveel ben je bereid hiervoor te betalen?
Interesting question… Because the worth is very much dependend on the advice I will get. If you can help us create our costumer-magnet and we can jump to the next level with our company, I’d say € 1000,- for 25 minutes is a good deal.

• Hoe gecommitteerd ben jij om de aangedragen inzichten en oplossingen te implementeren?

Very! Of course I am commited. Why else put myself up there on that stage? With stomach-aches upfront and trembling legs and all.
No, but seriously: my partners and I have set ourselfs a goal: to jump to the next level in our business by the end of this year. So your timing is perfect!
See you on the 27th, on stage!
Kind regards,
Suzanna

Strange, in the weekend of the Master Entrepreneur I loved to go to the podium. I was in group 12, and this group wasn’t invited for the hot seat. The energy of that moment was fanstastic.

And no, while I am implementing I have no feeling tot go on stage for the hot seat. The chance is big, on saterday, I will think. “Yes I would like to get feedback!”

I’m in the bussiness of travel. I help people to arrange their special journey. The fascination for authentiek landscapes and beautiful wilderness made me to go selling beautiful journeys. For more than 20 years I had my own business in landscapearchitecture. The crisis made en end of my firm, I said goodbey to my employees. So, I made a big change. I know I can make a bussiness succesful, I had one before.

Now I am franchiser, associate wit Travel Counsellors. My struggle is how to make more money, how get I paid for advice. (and not only by the commission). In this world is isn’t usual to pay for it. The “trechter” is also difficult for me. People choose not first a small trip to the Ardennes before they go to China (the Ardennes you book by yourself online).

Well, I hope, on Saterday, there is space for interaction with the energy of that moment!

1. I am working as a professional photographer in my own photostudio in Utrecht. My main business is personality photography (portraits and wedding), but also business photography. My unique selling point is my ability to create special atmosphere revealing the true personality of my client. One of my specialities is digital imaging. My ideal clients wish portraits a bit more special cq artistique than ‘just a clean portrait’, or a creative wedding reportage. Professional portraits are real luxury products in a world where mobile camera shots are favorite. How can I trigger prospects?
My newest product offer is quite unique I suppose: creating vision boards, not the collage of common cut-and-paste photos from magazines, but as a piece of art you wish to decorate your wall.

2. My biggest challenge is creating irresistable front-end and back-end products for the products mentioned above and a way to reach the right audience.

3. In return I would be happy if I could create a special vision board for you.

4. I did the Master Enterpreneur however I did not succeed in creating these products for my branch. Recommending my creative products, it needs a special way of thinking I guess. I am a quite modest person. I would like being helped in getting the right examples and steps to implement the insights and solutions of the ME in a way that fits my (creative) business.
Having received international awards in England with my photography I am very willing in finding the right audience in Holland who might appreciate my work.

Hi Nisandeh,

I help business owners with specific knowledge to spread their knowledge online. These people are passionate about what they can offer to the world. They solve specific problems and people are really helped… if they can find them. That is often a problem. Because although these business owners are convinced of their solution, they are very modest. They just don’t show the world what they do.

My biggest problem at this point in time is that I need a new type of client. I’m now very popular with small business owners, that do not really have the dough to invest enough to do all it takes. I would like to be able to take them further.

I believe that people that are passionate about something are the most beautiful people that exist. I want to give them the sense of self worth, so that they feel they deserve attention, inspiration and succes.

Hi Nisandeh,

3 minutes on stage will be enough. We got an absolute unique “thing”, far beyond any business.

We developed the universal freedom symbol.(see lsasada.com) In our vision the whole world feels free. It is our mission to spread the freedom symbol all over the world to inspire people and create a world where love and freedom go hand in hand.

We do not need 25 minutes of your time but few minutes on stage to present the symbol would be great. We got a 23 seconds digital presentation that will clearly show the symbol.
another two minutes to tell our vision and mission would be highly appreciated.

Please let me know what you want in return.
kind regards, Jan Eric Zoon en Ellen Arts

Mijn business is de Tune In Saxofoonworkshops: deze workshops helpen amateursaxofonisten om hun speelgemak te vergroten.
Mijn doelgroep is volwassenen tussen de 40 en 60 die zichzelf willen ontwikkelen met het saxofoonspelen.

Mijn plan is om volgend seizoen mijn eigen school starten waarin de Tune In Saxofoonworkshops en de saxofoonlessen zoals ik die nu geef aan muziekschool geïntegreerd worden en samen een gedifferentieerd aanbod vormen van verschillende prijzen.

Daarnaast schrijf ik over creatief en holistisch instrumentaal onderwijs (muziekles waarin je een instrument leert bespelen). Het streven is om in de lente dit boek uit te brengen en om een tweewekelijks bijbehorend blog te starten.

Mijn grootste uitdagingen:

Keuzes maken: hoe kan ik de school zo vormgeven dat mijn verschillende werkzaamheden (lesgeven, workshops geven en concerten geven) meer samenkomen zodat meer focus ontstaat.

Iemand vinden die mij kan helpen met het bovenstaande namelijk een mentor

Meer klanten krijgen voor de workshops. De mensen die meedoen zijn erg enthousiast en komen regelmatig terug: hoe kan ik veel meer mensen laten weten dat de workshops bestaan, of is het meer geduld hebben? Ik ben nu twee jaar bezig, maar bouw het langzaam op. Dit om te groeien in deze rol als ondernemer en ook omdat ik ernaast veel andere dingen doe zoals de saxofoonlessen en de concerten. Toch zou ik natuurlijk graag zien dat de workshops volgeboekt zijn, dat is nu niet het geval.

Durven om mijn boek een duidelijk ‘smoel’ te geven en het uit te brengen.

Ik reken op een inspirerende en leerzame dag zoals ik dat van Open Circles gewend ben, wie er ook zit op de stoel. Ik zou er zelf graag zitten, leergierig als ik ben en gedreven in mijn vak. En misschien is het herkenbaar dat een ander deel van mij fluistert: je bent er nog niet klaar voor; je business moet duidelijker, winstgevender zijn, je moet niet meer twijfelen over je keuzes….anders is het zonde van zo’n uniek gesprek. En dus is de drempel hoog om onmiddelijk te reageren en ook om er een voor mij aanzienlijk bedrag aan te spenderen. Aan Nisandeh zal het niet liggen.
Alleen al het bewust worden van deze gedachten is weer een stap in de goede richting en reden om ze hier op te schrijven. Een goed bedacht neveneffect van dit concept 🙂

Tot over een week en veel inspiratie gewenst aan iedereen die komt!

Hello Nisandeh,

Thanks for this great opportunity. I will shortly explain you my activities and challenges:

1. At this moment I am freelance consultant in Finance: I am working as interim Controller or interim Business Analyst in big companies. This work is ‘uurtje-factuurtje’; also, I am not going for new contracts myself: this is done by so-called “service providers”. As Nisandeh learned me, and I fully agree, this is not entrepreneurship. That is one of the reasons I decided to change my business to giving training and giving support in efficient use of MS-Excel. I have a very good knowledge in this, and already realized a lot of improvements in this field during my current work. My target audience will be very specific: Controllers and Business Analysts. I am going to give them training in efficient use of MS-Excel, both in group course as well as in dedicated courses (1-1). I also will offer building and implementing MS-Excel reporting and analyzing models. This new business I am setting up now and is planned to start as per January 2015.
2. Biggest challenges: determining opt-in, irresistible offer and describing my vision. I think my target audience and back end products are clear, although your comments on this are also welcome.
3. This session will be of much value for me. If you give me this hot seat opportunity, I will give you a one day scan of Excel practices in you organization for free and also free participation for your employees to the courses I am going to offer. And if you want, I will pay you a fee of 10% of all the turnover I reach above my current target of 120k for this business in 2015.
4. I am very committed to implement and I can prove it: I followed the Business Bootcamp, and this resulted in the decision to change my job. I also followed the Master Entrepreneur, and at the moment I am implementing it, including the Ultimate website.

I really hope to take place in the seat 27/9, thanks in advance!

What a shame, I have to cancel!
When I received the invitation for the hot seat session it fitted nicely in my agenda. With mixed feelings I decided to participate. It was a chance, but also a moment of truth.
Unfortunately an important appointment I was committed to has been changed to the 27th. I cannot tell my nearly 90 year old mother-in-law that I do not come to her party because I have something more important.

So, to my regret I shall not be there on September 27th. May be somebody else can be made happy with my place. Nevertheless I share what I wrote down to prepare. Even without participating the session it helped me to order my thoughts.

Industry:
I have 30 years’ experience in housing corporations. At the end of 2007 I stopped being an employee and started my own business. I became an interim professional working for housing companies and advisor for DIY groups / collective private clients, helping them to develop their own dwelling. I worked hard, doubled my income and was very happy. Word of mouth was enough to have plenty of work.
Due to the crisis, mismanagement and political choices both markets collapsed at the end of 2012. My advantage of being an all-rounder became a disadvantage, because it does not sell and does not help to focus. I struggled to define a new target audience and new offers. So far not successful. In 2013 I lost a lot of money and this year I just make ends meet by cutting down my expenses and do all kinds of (poorly paid) jobs.

Challenge:
My biggest challenge is to define a new target audience and offer. In the same time I work on my expert status by being active on LinkedIn, sent a monthly blog tot CorpoScoop and write a book about DIY building. Recently I was asked to organise an in-company workshop for a housing corporation. Here my knowledge of the sector and my experience with DIY come together. I decided to work this out in blogs and presentations. Surviving means working to times as hard for half the money. So it is quite a struggle to make progress.

Value and commitment:
It is hard to value the 1 to 1 session in money. It is priceless. I was glad that I could get involved for a price that I can afford at this moment. I am very committed when I can leave struggling in the dark behind me and have a clear target to go for.

Target audience:
From now on I focus on housing corporations that consider to facilitate DIY building. I know the target audience from the inside and I am an expert on the topic. Due to political choices the investments space for housing corporations is radically reduced. They have to cut down on costs, projects and staff. DIY building is an opportunity to realise their targets with no/little investments at low risk.

Front-end offer:
• my monthly blog on “CorpoScoop”
• (unpaid) articles on the subject in “Appartement

I help insecure teenagers to become self conscious. I teach them to control their thought by driving a car. The way they act on the road is how they manage their lives.

But the driving school is not the thing why i want to be in that hot seat.

I did the passive business online because i wanted to learn how to use websites more efficiently in my business.
Mean while I had some issues in my business like: 1- Continualy chasing after my money because of some bad paying clients. 2- Everyday an enormous amout of never ending emails to schedule appointments. 3 It took alot of my time where i was not able to do the things like, my strenghts is in and where i not could not make money. I created an online product to deal with these issues made it automized to always get paid up front. Where my clients could schedule them selfs without the urge to interact with me by phone or email. It saved me alot of irritation and i got more time free to do the things i love to do.

This

I’ve a challenge to combine my Target Audience with my ideal clients. At this moment its made for a driving school but it doenst have to be that TA. Its made to help a ZZPer in an “easy” version. There are more posibilities for companies with employees with the “advanced” options.

I’m not clear yet how to deal with the Front End. The Back End and the Irresistable Offer is clear could of course be tweaked to make it even better.

And about my unique proposition its quite a strugle to formulate it well. There is a trail if i look behind me in the things I did. How and why i did it.
And its betweend how i deal with my driving school and how i got to this product.
I would really be helped with the I believe…sentence.. I saw it at the Master entrepreneur and it was really great. I got tears in my eyes how Nisandeh nailed it by each one of them.

This session is worth alot to me, Its my chance to breaktrough to the next step in business.
The potential is way bigger then my business atm. There is way more leverage in it.
If i have to give it a number i did say€ 250.000 to €450.000,-

Im willing to pay 10% of the profit for 5 years straight to the Open Circles Foundation.

I Want nothing more then to breaktrough!

1. I do not work in a special industry. I have a private product made. And with my product I would like to give the buyer a good feeling.

2. In this time of bad news I want to sell to the people/companies: that they can give something away that give themselves a good feeling.

3. I want to give Nissandeh a good feeling.

4. As Nissandeh’s input the input is that I actually have in mind to achieve my goal: Who helps me to “fleurop” your fellow man, right away.

Dear Nissandeh,

I was very impressed by the Hot Seat session during the Master Entrepreneur.
So I would be thrilled if I’m invited on stage.

Branch: Health, medical wellness.

My company is called Thermo Medical Vision. It is in the research phase. In the horse world it is demonstrated that with thermography injuries can be detected 2-3 weeks before they can be noted.
I want to prove that thermography can be used as predictive method.
Next step will be to investigate the value of thermography as diagnostic agent. This will be a revolution the healthcare.

Target audience; Professional athletes who make their money with sports.

Front End could be the information about the possibilities of thermography.
Next steps can be the book about thermography.
Back End off course the recordings themselves. But what the other steps are?

Your advise is priceless. I think mentioning an amount is almost an insult. If you want to participate in the study, you’re off course more than welcome. And I would offer you a free subscription for the rest of your live.

I’m really dedicated. This is my mission to the world! Commitment? What ever it takes! I SO believe in this concept!!

My branche is creative design.

Studio Moné is specialized in optimizing the visual identity of companies to the needs of their target audience, this ensures a good and reliable first impression.
A branding looking very good for the company, often will not line with what the target audience are looking for.
By first creating a target audience analysis we can determine a strategy together with a company, after that we can manage the working out of the concept.
The good and reliable first impression of this will generate more leads what affects your sales targets positively.

My biggest challenge of the hot seat is my frond-end back-end product.
I can manage the complete visual identity, branding, web development, photography, promotional materials and more. That’s why for me the frond-end back-end product is a challenge.

I’m willing to pay a lot but at the moment I don’t have a lot to invest, that’s because I have invested a lot in my company.

I’m committed to implement all insights and solutions, where I have a goog feeling about and believe in myself.

Oops. A busy (but fun) work week and a nice relaxing (long) weekend made me forget to fill in the form…

The Hot Seat Event sounded like a very interesting event and that’s why I decided to attend the event. It’s new to me, but I’m not yet sure about the added value for me. I am, however, quite convinced that I’m headed in the right direction with my business and therefore, in contrast to all other responders, I actually wouldn’t invest any money in such a session at this point in time, since I know I will get there anyhow.
I did like your 3 basic courses a lot and for me they came at the right point in time (2012-2013). The courses were very valuable to me and my company. And, although I haven’t even implemented half of what I should/could, the one-liner “Double your income and double your free time” actually worked out already :).

The easiest way to explain what our company is doing is to mention that we make Operator Training Simulators. These are a sort of “Flight Simulators” for the process industry (chemical/petrochemical). Operators are the “pilots of their factory” and need to be able to safely operate their plant. We provide them tools such that they can be properly trained, without jeopardizing the current operation of their factory.

Our company also develops a software tool with which engineers can construct their own dynamic process models. We have developed one of the most flexible and powerful tools that is available on the market nowadays, based on a novel technology. It is our goal to bring our easy to grasp modelling methodology to the world and to teach engineers that modelling can actually be quite easy and very valuable (Because this type of modelling is generally seen as very difficult and time consuming, even by highly educated engineers).
The biggest challenge we have at the moment is how to let our target audience know that we exist.

On the Seat or not, I will have fun on the 27th of September and look forward to a nice event.
See you there!

Hello Nisandeh,

First of all, thank you very much for this opportunity!

I help small and middelsized dredging contractors in making more profit by helping them getting the contracts/tender. To get the work the contractors have to make a plan how they execute this work and they will get scores on how well they degenerate it on paper. If they do that well enough they can ask for more money. The problem is that my target audience does not have the advisors on board they so desperately need to get the job done AND raise their prices to match it.

So my FE is clear (help them to do that), but I’ve got trouble in defining my Backend. I did a market research to make sure I got the right Frontend. It is! And the contrators are exited about it. But what is next? I can’t get it straight in my head and the problem is (I guess) that I don’t ask my target audience the right questions.

Your hotseat is priceless! But you asked me to put a price on it. I’m confinced that you can help me (you’ve proven that). Right now my money to spare is little. But there are other sources I can ask (loans and stuff), so I’m willing to pay you 5.000 euro.

If I can get on that hotseat with you and we can work for 25 minutes on my business I know that by implement all you say my business will flow. So I’m very committed in implement whatever you say I need to do! As said before; I’ve proven me that it works!

I’m looking forward to (at least) see you in the hotseat event but hopefully I’ll be in it.

1. My branche is Design & Creativity. I love to make things, quite different things, but it’s all within the field of the arts. I make paintings, I make poems, I make music, I make theatre, I love to perform, I write lyrics and short stories, I write non-fiction.

2. Biggest challenge regarding target audience: first of all: how to decide what is my target audience? Regarding the different things I’m doing, there are probably multiple target audiences…. So, let’s start for my target audience for theatre/performance. The biggest challenge then is how to contact them (the ultimate website is on the way…) and how to get them to a theatre or festival or whatever place I am performing.

Biggest challenge front-end / back end. Well, I don’t know what my back end is. What if people come to a place to see me perform? What next? I’m not into doing workshops (yet). After I’ve been in the spotlight, I love to go back to ‘nowhere’, to write, to paint… Of course, the people who like to come to the theatre, might like to buy a painting as well, when they know me… 🙂

Biggest challenge positioning. The very idea that I could be a entrepreneur just happened to pop up at the Master Entrepreneur training. I had thought of myself as an artist, making things, but never as an entrepreneur. So, my biggest challenge is to understand what I can do as an actor/performer/painter. I believe that the stage is a powerful place to communicate with people. I believe people are open to hear stories, songs, poems. About life, about experience, about going on, finding your way. Things people recognize, they can laugh about or feel it otherwise. I believe I can make that connection. I believe I can take you with on a evening, on a journey. I want you to enjoy it, have fun, think about it, feel it, experience it. I am not satisfied if I haven’t reached you somehow, someway.

3. I’ll make a painting for Nisandeh. Either a portrait, or a painting I have in stock or a new one, a commission by Nisandeh.

4. If it feels like the way to go, I’ll start implementing the same day. There is one thing: because the whole idea of being entrepreneur is still very new to me, I feel overwhelmed with information (after a training or session). It is easily too much to understand it all. So, for me it is very important to understand what I am implementing, and which steps to take to achieve my goals. Learning to take one step at the time. The clearer my mind, the better!

Hi Nisandeh,

Thanks for this opportunity to get my mission and vision concerning my business more clear. I’ve waited till after the Breakthrough to Success, since I wanted to also get my new insights in my question to you.
One of my breakthroughs was going through the fear of rejection. That also meant fear of rejection by you concerning this request. I was afraid of not getting the chance to get into the Hot seat. But now I know it is my own thought that kept me from sending you this mail faster. While going through my fear of rejection, I realize it gives me more growth, success and happiness. One of the other fears was that I’m not good enough. And now I know that with the support of others, I can also show I’m good enough. Or more than that, I can help people since I’m good enough!

I’m working in the communication branch. I’m not only writing other people’s blogs and websites, I also help people to write a book about their expertise. I want that to be my main project. One of the things I really think that is important, is to let the world know how important the message of the expert is that I’m helping to write a book. That’s my passion. And sometimes I doubt if it really is my passion. I need help to clarify if it is.

My target audience so far are the experts in the health and wellness branch. That is because I’ve been writing articles about these subjects for a long time already, not only for (trade) magazines but also for newspapers. It’s my drive that the knowledge, experience and information of the people I interview and/or help writing a book becomes more clear and understandable for a large audience. It inspires me to help them to give their message, as their contribution, to people all over the world.

Although I did help a lot of people getting their message clear, I didn’t help many yet to write their book. It is not clear for me what should be my front-end and back-end products. What do people want and really need for writing a book?

My ideal client really has something important to tell the world. I believe that, through helping to share the experience of the expert (which he’s telling in his book) the world becomes a better and healthier place.

Only if I know what people really need and how I can help them, my business can start growing. If, through this session, that becomes clear to me, I’m dying to start implementing the things that are needed to be done!

My contribution: I know being in the Hot seat is a life changing experience. Having that, I help at least 3 other people to have a life changing experience.

See you on stage!

Our product is unique in it’s kind and can’t be catched in a branche. Our services is unique in the Netherlands. It’s a combination between luxury living for elderly with high quality services, inspiring activities and excellent care.

ServiceResidentie Molenwijck is a foundation and therefore there’re for me as director additional features. So one of my biggest challenges is to inspire the Board members of the foundation that the current product offers enough strength for years to come if invested in another method of promotion. Another way of promotion as part of our marketing concept, will help us to get more fame in the Netherlands so we can help more elderly to add more value to their life. By more publicity we could become an even greater inspiration to other organisations how to organise and take care that seniors can stay independent and continue to feel themselves happy even if their physical health and energy decreases.

In return to the hot seat inspiration I would like to give Nisandeh and Vered the opportunity to stay for a weekend (between Monday and Sunday) in one of our apartments inclusive breakfast/lunch and dinner in their apartment or in the restaurant. Thus, they are able to be inspired by seniors themselves. Their experience and perspective is often surprising and instructive. In addition, ServiceResidentie Molenwijck is located near the playful Efteling and the beautiful nature of the “Loonse en Drunense Duinen”. Everything you need for romantic days together with lots of new insights and idea’s from people who have had interesting successful lives.

Implementation of insights and solutions.
Because of our passion for high quality service ServiceResidentie Molenwijck has become a sought after product. We continuously work on quality improvement at all levels within the organisation. We believe that our success is determined by staying open to new insights and opportunities. We implement what is in line with our vision and mission. We know we also need to go outside our comfort-zone to get the results. So yes Nisandeh, I and my team feel fully committed to implement appropriate insights and solutions to get more success.

Because: I believe that the elderly can also be happy at a higher age even if health issues will become a part of their lives.

Because: I believe that age and health issues don’t have to become an obstacle so that they can keep living in their own environment.

Because: I believe that getting attention , constantly being amazed, being seen and recognized is essential in order to stay happy and fully.

Because: I believe that healthy food, social contacts, friendships and regular exercise contributes to a happy, vital old day.

ServiceResidentie Molenwijck therefore offers prerequisites to the elderly so that they can feel happy by living in a beautiful inspiring environment where they can continue to keep living in their own apartment no matter how much care they might need in the future.

Hi Nesandeh, here are my answers to your questions in order to deserve the Hot Seat:
1. I own a dietitians practice in which I help overweight women with a young family and a busy lifestyle to loose weight, feel good and regain their power and energy.
2.1 biggest challenge in defining TA: to make the right choice! There are a few more TA’s that I would like to use, but I learned in the ME to keep my plan to just one. The one that I named above fits me the most but I have difficulty letting the other groups go. Asking my ideal customers what the like most about my method, is very clarifying in defining them as TA.

2.2 biggest challenge in Front end en Back end: the caresystem in the Netherlands! My treatment is mostly for free if insured but there’s only so much that I can make mony out, per person. When the time is up for the free treatment, people keep away. I figured that if the free part of the treatment is my FE, the extra’s could be the BE. By that I mean that only the pure nutrition facts and advices count for the Front end, but the real coaching count for the Back end. For me as a care-worker, this is difficult matter! The more because the insurance company’s have erratic moves every year and I want to be independent of them at the end.

2.3 biggest challenge in positioning: that I find not so difficult, I think I have a clear picture which I like to discuss with you in the HSE!
3. To be your number one kandidate would be worth a nice amount of money because I expect to be challenged to the extreme. I find it difficult to give it a price in money; I can shout something but I don’t even know if I would be stuck on it and I don’t want to owe somebody money that I can’t afford. But: what I can pay you is commitment and enthousiasme and be a ambassador for my collegues showing there’s so much more to earn than we do now!

4. Commitment: Since I have my own masterplan for my future, I do whatever it takes. No babysteps, but giantsteps I have already made since the Business Bootcamp and the Master Entrerpreneur. Privatly I am rowing against the river but no matter. I know what I want and therefor no doubt about my commitment!

I love to see you at the event and what a super surprise that you bring Brian Tracy!

Hi Nisandeh,

I have an acupuncture clinic where I help people between 30-55 to get out of stress and to get maximum performance, in work, sport or family.
I still struggle to refine my target audience and to communicate it clear.

My front end is de first intake (GRATIS) and my back end is de acupuncture treatment. I would like to get loss from hour-note and the insurance system, but I’m afraid to do it.

I’m busy with my book where people can heal themself and find their live-mission with TCM.
I believe that everybody can self heal, and I’d like to help every year 5 million people to find their live-purpose.
I think that the value from this session is impossible to pay, but I can pay € 500.
I’m commitment to implement your solution whatever it take

Sector and business
The sector I am working in is Human Resources Management. I help MKB companies up to 50 employees to bring their Human Resource Management to a higher level.

Target Audience and ideal clients
I do not have really a problem with my target audience. My service fits most companies but my ideal client is quite important. There is a natural selection; if they are willing to closely cooperate to get better results. I bring in my expertise of the labor market, systems and time and advise. My client brings in information about their company, what they need and makes the choice for the candidate. This process is done by closely working together in which I have the leading role.

Front-end Back-end
I do have many ways to provide my services all based on the effective and efficient systems I developed. It ranges from free advice to basic service to full service. I make a custom work quote based on what fits best for the particular case.

our vision
WinWinWerkt believes that organizations that have healthy and committed people to work for them, perform better and achieve lasting success.

our Mission
WinWinWerkt helps organizations to be successful by the creation of successful and sustainable working relationships so that Win (employee) Win (organization) Works.

Willingness to pay
I know that the insights Nisandeh gives me are priceless since I been a participant of Open Circels Seminars and trainings for 4 years now. However, the willingness to pay is difficult. I do not address the matter partly because ‘easier said than done’.

Commitment
I am very committed in everything I do and I believe in. I do implement most of the things I learned from Nisandeh over the years. I adapt it to my business and personality.

Dikke, dikke, dikke pech! Ik blijk toch niet te kunnen die dag. Mijn zus gaat verhuizen en ik had mijn hulp, die ze hard nodig heeft, al toegezegd. Wat jammer vind ik dat! Hopelijk komt er nog eens zoiets voorbij, ik had dit heel graag meegemaakt, het is zo’n leuk concept.

Hello Nisandeh,

Done is better than perfect. Here the result of a few hours not planned effort. With the help of google translate my attempt to win your support.

My business: I discover unrecognized and latent living and housing needs of two target groups = > single or (sometimes) together > 1 or 2 persons households in the Budget/Basic or Medior group (vital, modern 50- 55 like my wife Ank and myself ☺).

Based on those needs I developed, involving and sparring with them, various “living habitats”. Which is the whole of 10 up to 200 households houses direct surroundings and scenery. Named Lofthûs, Cabanonpark, Tuindorp and Bouwvak = build your own home in your vacation

I believe in conceptual development because it creates solutions repeatable on (a lot of) different places. The living habitat concepts are footlose > in extremo, there is no location available at the beginning. The concepts are the start, the trigger. I want to initiate, mobilize and gather the demand, regionally. To realize in request, commissioned and financed by client groups. 100% demand driven. Crowd building as a variation of crowd sourcing or funding? A project is as big as the amount of clients / principals in that a specific region. They decide which location, customize there own house and the final looks of the surroundings.

Why me? I tell my own frustrating housing story as legitimation and trigger. Then serve them with a one stop shop proces. I learnt in a lot of interviews that my / our need is shared by lots of people. The government and city policy and industry does’t supply the budget / basic and medior group with „natural all time vacation feeling” living habitats.

Surroundings have an enormous effect on the quality of life and the living habitat. I am enthusiastic about (Brian Tracy taught me: ” You have to love your product”) are beautiful, modern, coherent, biobased and natural. With green, weather and the seasons as livable sensations, as decor.

Therefor I need volume. A group of 10 up to 200 principals.

Normally and bankrupt in the branche in NL is: struggle for a piece of land, a lot of negotiation, developing en organization by municipality and building companies and than communication of there problem : TO SELL or TO RENT > they are looking for a „end” client and blaming the crisis and banks for not selling. A lot of plans are no hold or deleted.

My challenge on defining my ideal clients are to formulate the psychographics. To find / to use the right message, language, design and imago.

A bigger challenge is to go to the market. My front and back end offer? And the whole website and internet thing! What kind of info, content or triggers I can use out of the mass knowledge I have to have succes. Or much better how to create real live experiences in the marketing funnel.

The outcome of the back-end must be running to the back to sign a paid regie / directing assignment to do everything to realize the habitat. When succeeded = final design and permits the buy is automatically generated. So my earnings are the paid assignment and the selling profit. After realization I do the service, maintenance and management of the living habitat. Also paid.

Once I had a website for Lofthûs. Without any tags to find it. Nevertheless I got in no time about 20 clients from everywhere. Not regionally gathered! At that time I could not deliver! So I expect buyers and renters to find.

In my opinion is my secondary / intermediate client (> the cities and social housing companies) the biggest challenge. They must make locations available and facilitate with demand driven regulations! As a condition for my triggering, mobilization and gathering proces.

How to serve my primary and my secondary client? How does my marketing funnel look?

At this moment I struggling to collect my payment for the Business University in 2015. So cash is at this moment not in stock.

The solution? I offer Nisandeh a succesfee. 10 % of the bruto selling profit of the first projects of Lofthûs and Cabanon. That will be a minimum of € 25.000 (50 x € 500) for Lofthûs up to € 87.500 (25 x € 3.500) for Cabanons. Total € 112.500. Further profit negotiable!

Commitment? What ever it takes! Just help and coach me!

Have a niche day!

Hi Nisandeh,

1. I work in the marketing branch and in the education branch. I help women who love nature and want to use plants, shrubs and trees for enrichement of their food and for maintainment of their beauty and health to learn the information they need in a relaxing and fun way.

2-1. My greatest challenge in defining my TA: I’m working on definding my target audience since the Master Entrepreneur training. There are so many different kind of people in my mailinglist, who buy my course and walk my herbalwalks that have all different kind of problems they have, that I don’t know which target audience will make the most profit and are the most ideal clients. I feel stuck and I need help bigtime.

2-2. My greatest challenge in develop my FE BE is that I have a remarkable product, but I doubt if the product is remarkable enough and if the product is just a method and not the product my TA wants.

2-3. My greatest challenge in my positioning and vision is that it is big and maybe it has to little connection with my remarkable product.

3. To become a kandidate is worth to me a lot. If I had the money I would pay for it a million, but unfortuneatly I’m not that wealthy yet. I pay € 1 and give you and your family a life-time free access to all the paradises of nature I will realize in the upcoming years. And I make a commitment that I will become one of the conscious millionairs you seek.

4. I am the most commited person you can ever get on that chair. Because I am one of the few people who exualy did the whole ‘Leef Lekker’- course with all the exercises and now I’m doing the 6-weeks Financial Independence for women and I do it ALL! If I want something I will get it!!!!

Have a lovely and succesfull day and see you soon!

Warm regards,
Martine
