Do you want to have more business success? Mastering body language is the missing ingredient for many business owners. Nonverbal communication can not only help you be more effective in your business dealings, but it can also give you an added edge above competitors.
93% of our communication is nonverbal.
But we rarely think about our body language when dealing with clients, investors or at networking. We think about what we are going to say, but we don't consider how we say something. Research shows how we say something is even more important than what we say.
This course is made up of the 6 areas every entrepreneur needs and how body language can help you succeed.
