“In the Blink of an Eye”

NSA Ohio is excited to welcome Danielle Turcola, past President of NSA Ohio, as our special guest speaker at our Chapter Meeting on Sunday, October 13th at The Quest Conference Center, 8405 Pulsar Place, Columbus. 

This is an event you will not want to miss!  Danielle will be presenting "In the Blink of an Eye" - sharing powerful and transformational insights and solutions to being and becoming our most successful and influencial selves.  Among the many take-a-ways are:
  • How quickly do you influence someone?  We unknowingly sabotage our ability to influence others through our choices and behaviors. 
  • How prepared are you to meet a potential client in a non-traditional business setting? On a plane? Train? Vacation? In a store? Car dealership? At a sports event?  
  • Your first impression produces two critical conclusions which lead to the start of a professional relationship. It all happens in the blink of an eye.
Join Danielle Turcola, and learn how you control 90% of what others determine about you.  And what makes decision makers hire you, pay higher fees, and recommend you to others.
Come prepared with questions, and bring a guest, as this promises to be a truly informative presentation! Friends don't let friends miss our great meetings!

You will not want to miss this session with the ‘SECRET WEAPON” of influence! Make your reservations now for the NSA Ohio Chapter meeting with Danielle Turcola on Sunday, October 13th!  We look forward to seeing you there.

How we turned a TV show into a Business Network

That is just some of it--- because the biggest thing we will do- is answer any and all questions you may have about how we do things -- what works and what has failed miserably. So bring your questions, any and all. Ask whatever you want and we will be glad to share.

We won't have all the answers or the 'right' way to do things. But what we do works for us and we are glad to share how we do it and if there is something you can borrow or learn from, well that is great!
