Host Warren Wandling takes you behind the scenes to get to know a variety of leaders and the keys to their success. Discover how leaders overcome their obstacles in order to achieve success. In this episode, Warren introduces you to Ann Sieg. 

Episode 009 – Ann Sieg 

ann-sieg

The author of some of the most widely read books in the world on how to get new customers and prospects to come to you, Ann Sieg is considered one of the pioneers of attraction marketing.

Since then, she has been able to impact the lives of 10’s of thousands of people, from CEOs to beginning entrepreneurs, through her groundbreaking coaching and training programs. Her reports have been read by over 400,000 people worldwide and she has helped many people achieve 6 and even 7 figure incomes – many of them through her free training alone.

After training thousands of entrepreneurs and direct sales reps how to build their own online sales funnels and info product businesses, Ann has since redirected her focus into the e-commerce retail space.

While having helped thousands of people become top sales producers in their companies, nothing has matched the rapid success her e-commerce students have reached. It is not at all uncommon for her students to cash flow their businesses in the first few days or weeks of starting their business.

Since this time Ann has developed multiple training courses, memberships and workshops to help meet her student’s needs at every level possible. Ann and her team deliver dozens of live, hands-on workshops every year across the country, as well as trips to China and the Canton Fair – the largest tradeshow in the world.

But what makes Ann’s community especially unique is the huge emphasis on a help-and-be- helped community that includes many private Facebook group support pages, high level accountability and tracking systems to gauge business activities and results, and a strong emphasis on leadership development that has groomed up a highly skilled team of consultants, coaches and trainers.

Ann’s vision is to help 1000 people generate $10,000 a month in revenue.  This is now entirely doable due to the rapidly growing e-commerce space combined with a powerful training system and community.  Members who never made a dime online now routinely hit the 100K mark in e-commerce sales.

In this episode with Ann Sieg, you will:

  • Understand the greatest obstacle her clients encounter
  • Identify the primary factors that contributed to her success.
  • Receive advice to successfully launch your business
  • Discover why mindset is so important for being a business owner
