Are you doing the work you were meant to do?

Have you ever asked yourself…

“What IS my true purpose?”
“What am I REALLY supposed to be doing with my life?”
You were born with unique gifts and talents that you came here intending to share with the world, by fulfilling your true life purpose. Sometimes we don’t remember what our unique gifts and talents are. Sometimes they are things that are easy for us to do so we dismiss them as not being any big deal but THEY ARE… and sometimes while the capacity is within us, we still haven’t let them come up and out yet.

Why should you care about discovering your life purpose? Because when you align your life with what you really came here to do, THAT is when success, abundance and happiness show up. It IS possible to love what you do, have your work make a difference in the world and earn a great living doing it.

This interactive presentation is for you if:

You have put your life on hold in order to take care of everyone else first
You have become numb to the sacrifices you are making — and continue to make — every day
You have no idea what you are passionate about anymore
You are already painfully aware that something significant is missing in your life; you feel called to do something bigger but have no idea what this is, how to figure it out or where to start

You’ll Learn:

– Learn how to stop living your life feeling stuck, lost and just going through the motions
– Find out what is possible for you–and for your life, without sacrificing yourself
– Discover 3 action steps you can take today to begin to get on track, on purpose and living your best, most authentic life

Boost Biz Ed: CUSTOMER KARMA Lifelong Customer Loyalty; host: Dru Shockley, Call To Action Alliance; presenter: Arjun Sen of ZenMango @ DaVinci Institute
Sep 27 @ 9:30 am – 11:00 am

CUSTOMER KARMA Lifelong Customer Loyalty by Arjun Sen of ZenMango

September 27, 2017Customer Karma will enlighten your team about the concept of Karma and how it is critical to building happy, long-term profitable customer relationships.

The number one challenge for most companies is how to be profitable without big a marketing budget. An average brand loses 25% of its customers every year. You must attract 30% more customers to get a net 5% increase in profit. What if you could reduce your losses to 20%? That would immediately double your profits to 10%.

Customer Karma focuses on “building relationships” one customer at a time. It will illustrate how you can significantly increase your “per store sales” by focusing on ONLY ONE ADDITIONAL customer per week. It will forever change the way you view your customers.

Arjun looks at brands with a clear lens. He shows you how to look at your brand from the eyes of the customer, and see the important and mission critical factors that brands often miss. His presentation will help you develop a clear strategy to grow your business immediately and over the long-term. Reflecting on proven strategies and case studies, you will reflect on why some of your strategies have not been successful, and reexamine what is truly important to customers, from their perspective. This thought-provoking, often comical presentation will generate real ideas you can implement immediately, with little or no financial investment.

You’ll Learn:

– How to identify the true lifetime value of your customers.
– How to see the Big Picture by putting yourself in the shoes of your customer.
– How to identify your brand’s Leaky Bucket®. (This dives into identifying your leaks, prioritizes them and then how to fix the most important ones)
– How to internalize how customers react to your product, your service and your brand.
– How to increase revenue without big marketing investment.

About Arjun Sen:

After more than 20 years as an executive with fortune 500 brands, Arjun uses big company strategies to grow businesses of all sizes, regardless of their budget. His keynote presentation, CUSTOMER KARMA®- Create Genuine, Life-long Customer Relationships and Increase Revenue, has motivated thousands of business owners, CEOs, entrepreneurs and sales executives to identify opportunities for organic customer loyalty.
After graduating with degrees in Aeronautical Engineering and an MBA, Arjun excelled as VP of Marketing and Operations for Papa John’s, Sr. VP of Marketing at Jillian’s Entertainment, and held key positions at Einstein Bros.
