Brain Boss: Master the Mindset of Top Producers (Productivity, Sales)
You’re the boss of your business – are you the boss of your brain? It is estimated that up to 99% of what your brain processes is non-conscious information that may trigger responses and reactions that are not in alignment with what matters most to you. As a result, your energy may be hijacked, attention distracted, and results compromised. Based on the world’s largest international database of brain research, the Brain Boss program will help you know and train your brain and body for optimal performance.

  • Understand the neuroscience of sales
  • Identify tools to recharge personal energy, focus and attention 
  • Learn how to better align brand awareness with brain science
