What we're about

I Take The Lead may be the answer for you. We help small business owners and sales professionals build a referral based business, while creating community, one member at a time. You will want to check us out if:

•You've belonged to other leads groups and felt they were a bit stuffy or overly regimented
•You are a business owner or entrepreneur and would like to increase the number of sales you are consistently bringing in
•You are in sales and would like to increase the number of referrals you receive

We offer 2 types of leads groups: B2C (the traditional type of leads group) or B2B (for those whose customers are other businesses; you must qualify for B2B).

For more information, PLEASE check out http://www.iTakeTheLead.com, especially the FAQ tab.

Guests are welcome to visit one or two meetings before joining. If you are interested in receiving the paperwork to join one of our referral groups, please contact Becky Tengwall, one of the Organizers directly at becky@itakethelead.com.

Grow YOUR Business by Doing Less

Portland Seafood Company

Many entrepreneurs are told if they want something, all they need to do is work “harder.” But, the truth about working harder doesn’t guarantee that you’ll get bigger and better results. In fact, so many ambitious, talented professionals find that the lifestyle and impact they craved upon starting their business got lost amidst business, overwhelm, and the “hustle.” But what if you could graduate from the “hustle” and grow your business another way? You can. It’s called Embodied Selling. And with it, you can: • Grow your business by doing less of what drains you and more of what truly fills you up. • Attract all of the ideal clients and opportunities you want, without having to work 24/7, sacrifice your personal life or relationships to get ahead. • Confidently say “no,” to obligations and opportunities that aren’t a fit for you, so you can say “yes” to what you really want. • Feel satisfied knowing that you are operating at your truest potential. Beth Ann Fischberg is a speaker, author, and creator of Embodied Selling, a revolutionary approach to business growth - by doing less, and being more. Her specialty is working with ambitious, service-oriented people who are ready to let go of the constant "hustle" of entrepreneurship, in order to make an even bigger impact. Beth Ann's clients find that with Embodied Selling, not only do they attract more raving fans and opportunities with ease, but they also feel better, more satisfied, and more inspired about their work. Join Beth Ann Fischberg, the creator of Embodied Selling, as she shares 4 Keys to Grow Your Business by Doing Less.
