Hi Nisandeh,

I got some great insights on the last Q&A so I’m really annoyed I can’t participate on 21 mei due of a training I’m giving. I’m still not systemized out of my business…

Still I would like to ask you a question an hopefully watch the recording later on.

I wonder if you could help me to get a beter view on the balans giving free value and selling a training.

I’m giving a free training for two hours to sell a two day training.
The conversion is not great due to not having enough time to gain trust.

How would you balans the time you need for gaining enough trust to get a chance to sell a training? Should I beter give a one day free training to sell a four day training?

What are your strategies to get the right balans?

Have a great day,

Hi Nsandeh,

My question is:

When we started our business 8 years ago; I operated and made decisions from my intuition and mostly “on my own” . It worked and I had to do and to deal with my own beliefs. It worked and I had everything under control 🙂

The last year I delegated a lot to our employees (; my companion is more and more a companion and we make decisions together. But there starts the challenge, because we have different beliefs, different points of view and also our employees have beliefs that are sometimes very opposite mine.

You have been there too, as I understand. Do you have a system 🙂 which things you discuss with employees, which things you decide on your own, how about the “gut” feeling of others.
For my feeling I have very little “under control” and have to trust others and give them “the benefits of the doubt” and see what happens when I give them responsibilities. Of course are they highly qualified people but the company is not theirs. They have a employee business mind and not an entrepreneurs’ mind.

It puzzles me.

Thanks in advance and sorry for my late question.

Hi Nisandeh,

I started my business in september. I followed the Master Entrepreneur a few years ago, even before the Business Bootcamp existed. I did the Business Bootcamp in january and also did the Expert seminar and your Secret Formula for Success two weeks ago.

Now it feels there are so many things I could or should do that I don’t know where to start… So I’d like some advice on that.

I started to execute my insights from the Business Bootcamp, improving my LinkedIn profile, I have a website with a regular blog now, a mailing list. I did all the software related things you suggested in the boost your productivity webinar a few weeks ago…

Guess the next step is to work on my funnel but I get a bit confused because there are so many things I could do. What do you consider the most important to start with?

My question is “How do you manage to stay in touch with your passion while doing business and making money?”

In my experience so far doing business and making money overshadows my passion. So in the end my passion will be in service of my business instead of my business in service of my passion. This influences my motivation so badly that I have the tendency to stay in my comfortzone (I also have a well-paid job) and less and less will get out of my hands. Also my pleasure/passion is slipping away rapidly. After a while my passion always comes back and I always have the idea to do something with this gift/passion and make this my daily business to let people benefit from this, so I start again (and again and again..). People are inspired in my stories about this passion and say this helpes them. But I can not ‘can’ this into a product/service without losing my passion.

Looking forward to hear your view on this.


Ps. sorry for sending in my question after due-time. I hope you can still give your view on this tonight.

Dear Nisandeh,
Thanks for your answer last time. The interiordesign for my accountant stopted for a while, because he’s very busy and he is making up his mind if he wants to stay there and expans or move. Either way, I can help him, but not right now. I learned from you that I have to commit the client more and make stricter agreements. I’m looking for a new client to make a proposal like that.

For now I have another question. I’m still struggling with my target audience. I narrowed it to only business clients and still have to narrow it. But there is also the point that I like the variation.
I tell my clients that my service is not the usual interior.
I’m investigating my target audience. For example, I made interiordesigns for 2 optics. I interview some I don’t know, to search for their needs, what wakes them up at night.
But I don’t know if its oke to want offices too 😉 for example.

Is also smart to do also private persons, but on another website?

Help! 😉

Dear Nisandeh,
Another question if I may 😉

Although I’m still struggling with my target audience I’m still going on. Is that wise? I cannot wait on my chair till a have my target audience right. But there also come things on my path. Someone wants to work with me. He has a business in Health on the workspace. Maybe I can see it as an opportunity and see how it works. That those things that come on my path also helps to fine tune my target audience.
And it’s better to fail and learn and go on, isn’t it?

Know , like, trust. That is the way, but that is mostly by networking. I cannot imagine that it works when a business gets a telephone-call from me; cold-calling. Why should they let me interior decorate their business if they don’t know me at all?
What is the way to know which companies move or need a make-over or start a business? The KvK is one way, do you (or maybe the other people who reads this) another way?

Thanks and looking forward to see you again.

Good afternoon,

A little late with my question…apologies!

I have quick question this time around :).

HOW and WHERE do you find the right business partner(s). At the moment I can not afford to employ people and I much rather want to continue building the business together with one or more partners but somehow I can only find people who want to be either employed by me or work as freelancer. Any ideas on how to build a team?

Dear Nisandeh,

Most of my sales talks are on the phone. Like Coen is also stating above, I have a short time to gain trust. I always call and have a telephone conversation for 10-15 minutes. If I listen and talk to the decision making person I get a conversion of 50% to people who say yes after this call, so I can close the deal.

There are also some people who really have a far lower budget in mind and are not willing to pay for the value. They see the value but do not want to spend the amount of money.

A third group of prospects, is not the (only) decision maker. They are enthusiastic and really want to buy, but they have to discuss it in the management for the budget. I always ask to get to the people who decide about the money, but in these cases that door is closed. Too often I hear then later on “I really liked your value and your offer but my boss doesn’t want to pay that amount of money”.

Do you have some tips to increase my sales conversion in the last two groups of prospects?

Thanks in advance. I’m looking forward to 21st of May

Hi Nisandeh,

Thank you for this opportunity.
My question is :
You have used, discovered, learned and developed many systems in your businesses.
What system was the most successful and had / has the biggest impact on your business?

Thank you for sharing,
