Mark Ferrell - You Only Get One Song
What were the principles that allowed Mark Ferrell to be fully booked at 3-5 times the market average in one of the most competitive markets in the US? What was his motivation for client service, client relations, and high performance standards - standards which led Mobile Beat to invite him to keynote and present an unprecedented three seminar series called "Getting What You're Worth" in 2000? In his latest seminar, Mark shares the keys to his success that, up until now, he's shared only privately by mentoring, in private forums, and in his MarBecca Method workshops. If you could only play one song at your next party, what would it be? What is your passion, and what is your unique voice? From where do you draw inspiration and motivation? Mark answers these questions and more in this very direct and illuminating seminar. You only get one song. What will yours be?
