Today, I’m honoring the Queen of Sales Conversion, Lisa Sasevich.
Talk about a White woman who has my back!
You probably know her name—she teaches entrepreneurs who “hate the sales part” how to leverage their talents, products, and services into massive profits without sounding salesy.
And she’s helped over 15,000 clients in 134 countries earn more by doing what they love most … including me! #holla!
I have invested in a LOT of internet marketing leaders, but Lisa stands out. She has given my endless, unconditional support, and I am so grateful.
I met Lisa seven years ago (May 11, 2011 to be exact!) at her Events Profit Secrets Event. I remember Kym Yancey had reached out to Lisa on my behalf, because at that time, I was still teaching as a professor. I wanted desperately to get out of that career, but didn’t know how to do anything but teach. I didn’t have $5k to pay for EPS. I was living on credit cards. But I trusted Kym, and if he said I needed Lisa’s systems, then I was going to find (or create) a way to get to her.
As a favor to Kym, Lisa waived the $5k fee to attend (#sogenerous)! All I had to do was cover my material cost, flight, and hotel. When I arrived, I found myself in a room of a bunch of rich, successful White people and felt inferior. Lisa gave me a big hug, went out of her way to put me on stage to share in front of such a prestigious room, AND she even learned a dance move from me that she and I did from the stage… together. NEVER had I had such support from a White woman in front of rich White people in my entire life! I felt, seen, included, celebrated, and loved.
She’s been my mentor and advocate ever since! She’s asked me to speak on her stage, do livestreams, mentioned me in articles … you name it.
And I look up to her, sis. Even when the industry was not kind to her, she always chose the high road.
She has also championed my focus on Black Women, NEVER once even suggesting I try to be more “inclusive” (yes, I’ve heard that a lot from others in the industry!).
But what I love MOST about her is that she has lovingly stood in her power, and she loves God openly.
She has been—and still is—an extraordinary mentor and role model. She is my champion, and I hold her close to my heart always.
Who is YOUR champion, sis?
Post below, so we can bear witness to the one who has held you up!
