Duchess of Earle Shares a Thought from Jeffery Combs September 28th, 2010

The Duchess of Earle just opened an emailed invitation from Jeffery Combs.  The invite is for his regular Tuesday evening call and tonight’s interesting – and vitally important – topic is “The Science of Attraction.”

Jeffery’s invitation says, “This call will assist you to develop a better understanding of the attraction process, how it works, why it works, and how you can use the laws of attraction to improve both your personal and professional life. As a matter of fact, the more you understand the natural laws of attraction, the more you will realize the laws are always in effect.  Prosperity, leadership, success, and happiness are all situations you have the ability to create through attraction. ”

Then what really caught her eye was the quote he shared from his book, More Heart Than Talent

Life is about service and value and giving back, not just taking.  Everything operates off a yin and a yang, a give and take, and you’ll get exactly what you expect. When you expect to struggle, the Universe will reward you with exactly what you expect. When you expect to flow, to reside, to be hands-free, to evolve and start to become the person you’ve always deserved to be, the Universe will also reward you with its own sense of abundance.”

The Duchess most cordially invites you to check out all the amazing products that Jeffery has to offer – there’s absolutely something for everyone, no matter what stage you’re at in your career.  The Duchess recommends in particular “The Power of Asking” – happily, he’s running a special on that.  Just what everyone is looking for in these times – a great deal with great value!

Duchess of Earle sits in on Jeffery Combs’ Conference Call August 20th, 2010

Good evening, dear readers!

Well, unfortunately the Duchess of Earle had to be away from her phone booth for part of Jeffery Combs‘ call on Tuesday evening when it was live, so today, she went back to listen to the archived edition online, so as not to miss any pearls of wisdom. 

She shares with her readers herein some of those little goodies she heard – in hopes that they will also find them beneficial.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

It is interesting that, just as the Duchess began to type this post, there was reason to assist the Duke on a little project he was working on.  It led her to read a passage from Eugene Peterson’s The Message, where in Mr. Peterson was commenting on learning. 

His remarks were specifically about happiness not being the result of book-learning, and this same notion seems equally as fitting to the notion of learning how to approach business.  He says (on p. 2135), “Something more like apprenticeship is required, being  around someone who out of years of devoted discipline shows us, by his or her entire behavior, what it is.  Moments of verbal instruction will certainly occur, but mostly an apprentice acquires skill by daily and intimate association with a “master,” picking up subtle but absolutely essential things, such as timing and rhythm and “touch.” ”  Timing…  rhythm…  touch…  All qualities of thought gleaned by observation, put into practice by modeling the examplar.  It seemed to the Duchess that this is just what she’d been hearing about on the archived call…

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~  

So now back to Mr. Combs:  After a series of what the Duchess will call “speedbumps” in the road of life,” Mr. Combs has spent many years learning to discipline himself, learning how to prospect and be successful in business; therefore he has much to offer those that are willing to listen to – and act upon – his counsel.  He has been in life situations that have been more than challenging, but has come through them, not only to survive,  but to thrive – and now is easily a six-figure income earner from the comfort of his home in Stockton, California

Mr. Combs’ subject for the evening had to do with closing a sale – a subject anyone in relationship or internet marketing should be studying and practicing continually.  So here they come, friends, some of the ‘goodies’ the Duchess most appreciated:

In order to close a sale, one must be able to ask questions and they must come “early and often” in the conversation with the potential business partner/customer.

There is a “rock-solid science” to asking questions…  It’s a science, but also an art.

Your questions should create a connection with the individual.  To use questions successfully, you must have a genuine interest in the person and make them feel that in your voice and action.  If your approach and execution are well done, it won’t feel like an interrogation by the local constabulary.


As you chat with people:                                                     

You’re looking for people who qualify for your time – please note, friends, that not everyone does! 

You’re seeking those that can afford your product and/or service.

You’re watching for teachability – people who are willing to be coached, willing to learn. 

You’re also looking for independence – those that are dependent upon you will never make it on their own.

Learn to spot resourcefulness – people who don’t focus on the ‘how’ of things, but on the ‘why’ of things and then go ahead and take action.

You require more leads than you have time to get to.  If you don’t have enough leads, you tend to get attached to your potential customers/partners.  If you don’t have enough leads now, get some more – buy them if necessary.

The science of closing comes down to two issues: hurting and rescuing.  Your potential client/partner is hurting in some way (the number one biggest hurt is money).  Find out where their pain is and then throw them a lifeline: offer them your product/service/opportunity.

Now, dear readers, assuming you’re here on account of one of life’s hurts and assuming that it’s likely financial, would it give you an assist if the Duchess threw you a lifeline?  If you’re that person that is coachable, that desires to learn and is willing to take action, go ahead!  Grab this lifeline by clicking below to check out Jeffery Combs’ excellent set of CDs on the subject of mastering the science and the art of asking questions.  You’ll learn to build your business and close those deals!

Receive your copy of the Power of Asking Special Offer today!


Also, before the Duchess signs off this evening, she’ll mention to you all that there is a More Heart Than Talent event coming up right after the first of the new year and she invites you to seriously consider attending – you can even bring your entire team, as there is a group rate available.  Click here for more information.

Duchess of Earle announces an Affiliation with Jeffery Combs August 2nd, 2010

Good afternoon to all the Duchess of Earle‘s readers!

The Duchess wishes she had a trumpet on hand and that, if she did, she knew how to play a little brass fanfare  (actually, she just found one!)…


…to accompany the announcement that she has affiliated herself with Mister Jeffery Combs. (You may have noticed that the Duchess posted his 4th of July offer in the previous blog entry.)  If you haven’t seen that yet, you will find  Mr. Combs’ photo below, just so you know who he is. 

Jeffery Combs, President & Founder, Golden Mastermind Serminars, Inc.

(The Duchess has discovered in the process of writing this post that there is another Jeff Combs out there – one with LOTS of Hollywood credentials – a guy that sometimes has looked like this:

  However, the Duchess, with a smile of good-natured relief and a wipe of her brow, is happy to inform you that this is not at all the same chap!)

A little background:  You may – or may not – know, dear reader, that Jeffery Combs is the President and Founder of Golden Mastermind Seminars, Inc., a Stockton, California-base company that specializes in coaching and assisting people, such as you and the Duchess, in learning the skills it takes to run a profitable business.  The Duchess has been aware of Mr. Combs now for several years and has listened on and off to his weekly calls; she has also attended a half-day event and heard him speak live.  In the last year or so she has become more faithful about listening in on his conference calls and has found herself more and more impressed with what Mr. Combs has to say.  Looks as though it’s been a matter of the old saying, “When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.”  Well, this student didn’t think she was particularly ready at the beginning, but she finds herself much moreso now! – and that’s a happy thing! 

It’s a particularly happy thing because the Duchess now has a team of folks in her business and she is leading them to listen to and heed Mr. Combs’ training, so that they are learning to improve their own methods of approach in their respective businesses.  Sharing with her team is what led the Duchess to contemplate, and then act upon, associating herself with Golden Mastermind.  It’s because of the benefit she sees in the growth of herself and her business associates – and because she hopes that you too, her frequent readers, will find similar benefits in Mr. Combs’ offerings.

Here’s a little bit of additional info for you, dear website friends:  Golden Mastermind offers quite a number of products for the entrepreneur, whether experienced or novice.  Of late, the Duchess’ team has been meeting weekly to listen to and discuss Mr. Combs’ information on the subject of prospecting. It has been both enlightening and encouraging to the entire team; therefore the Duchess invites you, her blog-reading entrepreneurial friends, to consider the benefits of this program to your own enterprises.  Prospecting is something that anyone in business must find a way to do – and anyone who has been in business longer than about 5 minutes already knows that it can be challenging, albeit rewarding.  Take a click on the following link and check it out!  It’s well worth the investment in yourself and your business, because, dear friend, you deserve to succeed!  And when you write to or speak with Mr. Combs about your situation, please tell him the Duchess sent you! – and happy prospecting to all the Duchess’ entrepreneurial friends!

Duchess of Earle shares Jeffery Combs’ Independence Day Offer July 2nd, 2010

Good evening once again!

The Duchess of Earle has received an invitation to take advantage of a grand offer and thought her readers might well enjoy being blessed with the same opportunity.  Here’s the deal:

Jeffery Combs, President and Founder of Golden Mastermind Seminars, Inc., has come forward with a Fourth of July special – and it’s a generous one!  It’s a package of materials featuring the great inspirational speaker Jim Rohn, who passed from this planet late last year – but not before he influenced many thousands upon thousands of people in superlatively positive ways.

Mr. Combs had the great privilege of interviewing Mr. Rohn on three separate occasions and shares the fruits of those interviews with us all in this package, along with other related personal development goodies.   It is a package stuffed with benefits for anyone willing to spring for it – and it’s a honey of an offer.  Valued at over $600,  Jeffery is practically giving it away for a mere $99! – and that includes 15 minutes of coaching time with Jeffery in person!  Can’t beat that for great value!

Here’s his invitation:


So please, encourages the Duchess, go check it out – and here’s the link to take you there!  Look for the fireworks with the eagle and the flag!

Oh!  One more thing, Friends:  When you decide to take action on that especially special Independence Day package, please tell Mr.Combs the Duchess of Earle sent you.   And know that, as you listen to and learn from this magnificent fellow, Jim Rohn, and from his admirer, Jeffery Combs, the shining self that is you will sparkle even brighter!

Happy learning – happy living – happy sparkling, Friends!
