About Mastering Marketing: Leading A Journey Of Becoming

Confused By Marketing?

Now There's A Map To Guide You.

If you’d like to get your head around how to approach business development, this book is for you.

Over the years we’ve found business leaders struggling with sales and marketing because they lacked an understanding of what it is and how to approach it.

Without a frame of reference, people mistake marketing for advertising, websites, and social media rather than recognizing it as the system you create to guide your customer’s journey through your business.

Mastering Marketing is about learning how to lead your business development program.

In this book, you’ll discover the sequence to follow as you build a system to attract, engage, enroll, retain and develop client relationships by design. You’ll discover that marketing is not something you buy or a to-do list of tasks. It’s a practice you take on and master, akin to martial arts, where you gain mastery over its many practices in stages.

If you’re committed to starting and growing a sustainable business, let Mastering Marketing be your guide.

Why Write This Book?

The Background Story

When I started my first company, I found it extremely difficult to find any big-picture conversation about business development.

Most of the consultants I found, and materials I read were tactic vs solution-focused. I was looking all over for help, and all I got was pitched on things people wanted to sell me. I was not experienced enough to know what I needed, which resulted in a bunch of costly mistakes.

I wrote this marketing book to help you see where you’re going and navigate the business development journey with greater confidence.
