I’m very pleased with the way my business has grown since I started working with Lori!

“I’m very pleased with the way my business has grown since I started working with Lori. I registered for the Trailblazer Business Mastermind and I’m glad I did. The program has helped me to grow my business systematically and with purpose. The content Lori offers is strategic, thorough and easy to implement. Having access to an expert coach to get guidance and accountability has been priceless and very beneficial to me. I’m getting more ideal clients and not trying to serve everyone. Lori knows marketing and sales and she is able to help you turn your weakness into a strength. I wholeheartedly recommend the Trailblazer Business Mastermind.” – Kimberly Ormsby, VIP Staging Atlanta

I’ve closed 5 new property listings, all within a few months of Lori’s strategic training!

“Before working with Lori I was doing very well as a premier real estate agent in Atlanta. However, I knew I could be doing better. After signing up for VIP consulting, I realized what I was missing. I had major issues with marketing myself, business development and mindset issues which kept me from getting out of my own way. After working with Lori, I upgraded my revenue acceleration plan and closed 5 new property listings (and one of them was a million dollar luxury listing in a coveted neighborhood), all within just a few months of Lori’s strategic training. If you’re ready to improve your results, shift to a winner’s mindset and make more money, you must work with Lori.”

I highly recommend working with Lori for your marketing and business development needs!

Lori Manns works tirelessly to ensure that her clients succeed. I have found her programs (both in-person trainings and e-courses) very helpful as my research firm continues to grow. Lori brings great insight and solid expertise to every interaction she has with her clients and partners. I highly recommend working with Lori for your marketing and business development needs!

Not only have I gained new clients after working with you Lori, now the obstacles are gone…

Thank you for the training and support offered in the Marketing for Trailblazers & Sales Accelerator program. Before enrolling in your program, I found myself being “all over the place” and not reaching my full potential. Now I can clearly see my business catapulting to heights and depths I’ve never seen before. I now know who my ideal client is, and I know how to approach them and get what I want! I could not have done that without the impartation of your wisdom and expertise. After learning how to package and prepare my expertise in a manner that would yield results, I was able to enroll a handful of clients in a new system of my own that I’m so thrilled about. Not only have I gained new clients after working with you Lori, now the obstacles are gone, and I’m on my way to experiencing exponential greatness. But I couldn’t take the next step without expressing my utmost appreciation to you. You are phenomenal, and I appreciate you from the very depths of my heart. Thank you!

I got 2 new clients and several hot prospects in less than 2 weeks.

I’m so glad I decided to work with Lori. Before working with her I didn’t have a marketing plan or a clear and concise elevator pitch, nor was I getting clients consistently. After consulting with Lori I have a new elevator pitch and core message that attracts my ideal clients. The best part is, within 2 weeks of our VIP coaching session, I got 2 new clients and several hot prospects, made possible by using the marketing strategies Lori suggested. I highly recommend you work with Lori if you want fast results in your business.

After the training, in just one month, we have secured over 5 new sponsorships for our business.

Attending the Sponsorship Sales Secrets Workshop enabled me to create a win-win situation for my business and sponsors as well. After attending the workshop, I finally knew how to begin approaching sponsors. I secured an in-kind transportation sponsor to provide a service for  Savory Taste Food  & Wine Events that previously was an expense. After the training, in just one month, we have secured over 5 new sponsorships for our business. Thanks to the training we received from Lori, my company is on track to have consistent partnerships with more ideal sponsors.

After working with Lori, I have a long term marketing plan that I am confident will work to grow my business and create repeat customers.

Before working with Lori, I was uncertain of how to effectively market and grow my business. I found it hard to focus my marketing efforts.  I tried a variety of tactics that were being used by other businesses, but none truly worked for my business model or vision. After working with Lori, I have developed a more focused, dedicated and long term marketing plan that I am confident will work to grow my business and create repeat customers. Lori has helped me develop a marketing blueprint to follow and I can’t wait to implement all of the tools I’ve learned in the coaching process with her.

After just one session with you I walked away with such clarity in myself and my message as to what I do, how I do it and what I can provide for my clients.

Before our strategy session together, I was in the process of trying to define my brand and clarify exactly what I did with and for my clients. After just one session with you I walked away with such clarity in myself and my message as to what I do, how I do it and what I can provide for my clients. Your listening was so attentive, your questions made me dig deep inside of myself to find the words and clarity that I was desperately seeking. You did not spoon feed the answers to me, but rather guided me and  made me come up with them. Today I am so clear, articulate and confident when I speak about my work. If anyone has any doubts about themselves, what they have to offer and needs clarity in their message, they need you Lori as their coach!
