    Inspire, Don’t Sell: Creating a Sales Funnel that Works!

    Speaker: Diahana Barnes

    To reach out to our local entrepreneur community, this month's meeting will be virtual and FREE on the Zoom platform.

    For many of you, this is an extremely difficult time right now but we hope you can take a little time to find ideas for your business to get back to success in the future. WESO will continue to be here for you.

    This month, you'll learn about creating a sales funnel that works! Attracting amazing dream clients is easy with a consistent focus and system.

    This will be a highly interactive and hands-on session where you will create the foundation for your very own sales funnel that attracts dream clients.

    • What is a Funnel and How To Get Dream Prospects Into Yours
    • How to Turn Your Unique Brilliance into a Sales Funnel that Attracts and Converts
    • 10 Ways to Fill Your Funnel with Hot Leads

    Diahana Barnes is an award winning Trainer, Speaker, Success Strategist, and Executive Coach with over 23 years of experience. Mom, former corporate woman, and entrepreneur, she built her own highly successful coaching and consulting business after leaving a demanding corporate job leading $40 Million dollar sales teams and running multi-million dollar marketing campaigns.

    She's worked with Fortune 500 executives on their keynotes, been personally trained by their executive coaches, and spoken on stages with audience sizes ranging from 25 to 500. Her mission is to help 10,000 heart centered entrepreneurs be the Harmonious CEOs of their businesses.

    Expo Canceled but Prize Raffle to Benefit Community Works - Dunn House Shelter is ON

    Choose between $5 for 6 tickets,  $10 for 15 tickets and $25 for 40 tickets.

    Click the "Register" button on the WESO website raffle event to buy tickets.

    WESO supports the Community Works - Dunn House Shelter and we hold an annual raffle at our Entrepreneur Expo to raise money for them. Community Works - Dunn House Shelter provides a safe refuge and support services for women and children to help them escape from domestic or sexual abuse, stalking, trafficking and date violence.

    Abuse has become an even greater concern with the stresses of the COVID-19 pandemic. See here for more info on this.

    Sadly, we had to cancel Expo BUT our prize donors said to "Go for it!" when we suggested selling raffle tickets online and giving away their prizes. Thank you, prize donors!

    We plan to hold the prize drawing on May 14. Winners do not need to attend the drawing to win. Winners will be notified by phone or email. Prizes will be personally delivered or shipped (depending on the items in each basket/box and winner's preference).
