Recent testimonials from Sid's Clients...
“I have been making prospecting calls for decades as a recruiter. There were some calls I was not making at the top of the market. After I worked with Sid I was able to ignore my ego and let my intuition take over. My calls became a lot more meaningful as I was able to truly engage with people and find the ones who wanted to work with me. The number of meaningful conversations skyrocketed as I was being my authentic self. This was a total game changer. Sid got me to be more intuitive (less structured) and that made all the difference in getting more searches."
Doug Miller, Top 100 Recruiters in US
"I was lost. I did not understand sales or prospecting. I was afraid of picking up the phone. Then I found Sid. I could tell he was a real person who had a lot of experience with these issues. I wanted an empowering approach to sales and prospecting, not the traditional pushy stuff. Sid helped me develop an approach that was perfect for me. The whole process was far less painful than I had imagined. Today, I can easily make the calls I need to make. Sid was always there when I was stuck or frustrated. Within a couple of months of starting Sid’s program, I made a call that resulted in a $40,000 commission. Not bad for a guy who didn’t want to make sales calls!"

“Before I met Sid, I had moderate success, but business was exhausting. I’ve been working with Sid for about 10 years. My income started at about $40,000, and I’m well over a 7-figure income this year. When you work with Sid, get ready—it’s a great experience!”
Curt Pederson, Ameriprise Financial Services Seattle, Washington
“I had a lot of problems prospecting, and I wasn’t meeting my income goals. Working with Sid was one of the best investments I ever made: It’s paid off 100 fold."
Randy Riley, CLU, ChFC, MBA
“By using Sid's intuitive approach, my business took off like a rocket ship. The results have been spectacular. My income has gone up 700%.”
David Davis, MBA; Mass Mutual
I"Before working with Sid I struggled daily to motivate myself to get on the phone to promote my real estate business of 15 years. All the previous training I had on making prospecting calls was way too aggressive and disingenuous. I was so uncomfortable with these "classic" techniques that I dreaded making calls and avoided it as much as possible - which caused my business to suffer. As soon as I hired Sid my business took a complete turn. He quickly spotted my points of resistance and made recommendations tailored to my unique needs. Within one week I felt more motivated to make calls than ever before, and I was equipped with a new attitude and set of methods that fit my sincere and low-pressure philosophy. And it worked. I had the biggest quarter of my career with this new approach! Sid truly has a gift for getting people on the phone! "

"I had an engineering background before getting into the financial services business. Sid helped me reframe my whole perception about sales and especially prospecting. It’s all about putting yourself out there to find the right people. I am not sure I would have made it without Sid’s help. Today, I have the best job in the world in terms of income, free time, and helping people reach their financial goals. Sid is a profoundly skilled sales coach. And, I attribute much of my success to his main philosophy, 'If it feels intuitively right, do it!'”
Fran King, Wealth Management
"I thought I needed to have all the answers and defend my opinion if anyone challenged me. That combined with a fear of being negatively judged by people, I was an emotional wreck too much of the time in my sales job. Sid helped me disengage from my ego’s need to be right and helped me see that I don’t have to have all the answers. I have a lot more confidence in myself and my ability to help people with their finances in a relaxed and productive way. My family likes the new me, and I know I will make a lot more money this year with the low-key approach. Thank you coach!"
Chris Johnson, Financial Services
"I was never comfortable with the aggressive approach to sales, but I did the best I could. I was successful in spite of my resistance, but I always felt like I could be do better, especially with making prospecting calls. Sid taught me to be much more relaxed and to get on the client’s side of the table. That made all the difference. I now feel like I have a valuable service to offer and if people are not interested, that’s ok. I am looking for the people who want my help. I am enjoying my business as well as the prospecting part more than ever. Thank you, Sid."
Paul Burns, Financial Services

"I am so thankful that Sid Walker is part of my life. I’ve been in financial services for 37 years. For the last six years, I have had to deal with the death of my granddaughter, adopting her orphan son and my wife passing away two years ago leaving me as a 75-year-old single parent. My prospecting was non-existant due to basically starting up again, my age, and my fear of calling prospects. I am an educated hillbilly with a master’s in estate planning. Education is great, but you must have butts in the seats to be successful in this business. Thank you Sid for helping me overcome the fear of calling prospects. You are a blessing!"
Tommy L. Ruff, CLU, ChFC
"I listened to Sid’s audio book and felt like he was speaking to me. I started the individual coaching with Sid and immediately heard things I had never heard before. Learning that the “ego” is the source of call reluctance and that I could control my negative thoughts, was a powerful breakthrough for me. Sid gives you brilliant tools to lessen the effect of the negative ego. Bottom line, you find that you can make more prospecting calls. And, if you make the calls, you are going to make more money. It is that simple. As Sid teaches, if you make calls, you are going to make more money somehow. New business will come from a variety of sources. Most important, Sid showed me that I can be a nice guy in Manhattan and do well in real estate sales. I don’t have to be a pushy New Yorker to succeed. Since I started with Sid, I have 3Xed my business from last year and the year is only half over!"
Nishant Sondhi, Real Estate Broker
Manhattan, New York
"I had been successful in real estate, but felt like my life was out of control. I was trying to do everything right which seemed like an impossible task plus I was constantly worried I would make a mistake and lose out somehow. Working with Sid gave me a whole new mindset that eliminated negativity and worry in a profound way. My attitude shifted to talking to lots of people no matter who they are and letting things happen (or not happen) instead of trying to micro manage everything. When I stopped worrying so much about every detail, it freed me up to do a lot more business. I now trust that if the deal is supposed to happen, it will. I am currently handling 2-3 times more transactions than ever before and I think I can actually do more with my new mindset. I highly recommend Sid’s books, internet course and coaching. As Sid says, “What works is so simple, it’s easy to miss.” I feel blessed that I found the right coach.

"Sid has been a friend and coach to me for two decades. My professional life morphed from being a top producer of a national financial services company, through managing proprietary hedge funds to building my own nationally recognized financial planning company. I talked with Sid every step of the way and had him present to my agents a number of times. Today, I own a faith-based senior living development company with projects totaling over $400 million.

“I needed to make prospecting calls for my specialized accounting practice. I learned a number of approaches, but I didn’t like how I sounded and felt bad every time I tried. I was stuck and couldn’t pick up the phone. Then I found Sid and his internet course on overcoming call reluctance. I went over the course three times over ten days. I took notes and tried to absorb everything. Sid also helped me make my phone language. On the 11th day, I got on the phone. It was awkward and challenging, but not terrible. It was way easier than I thought it would be...and I got good results. A lot of the people I called were interested! I only need one client a month to make my model work. I am confident we can get one client a month and a lot more if we want it. The promise of Sid’s course is to get you on the phone. Not only did it work for me, it was life changing. The course influenced my personal relationships, my triathlon training and has simply made my life more enjoyable and much more stress free!"

“The reasons salespeople get call reluctance can vary widely. I have reviewed and experienced a lot of books and training courses on this subject. When you’re looking for help to figure it out and discover the breakthrough within us, everything else fails in comparison and often feels gimmicky. Believe me, I know! We know it’s not a primary fear (or we wouldn’t even think of being in this profession), but it’s something else that keeps getting in our way. It can be specific to each of us, but the solutions we seek can be found through the principles that Sid Walker teaches. Through his Fearless Prospecting course, and his calm and almost hypnotic delivery, Sid will help you tap into what you need to discover within yourself to conquer your irrational fear-filled ego and bring your true self to your prospecting efforts! Let Sid and his Fearless Prospecting course be your prospecting and call reluctance Sherpa! Let him guide you along the way to rediscover your original and best self to your relationships and conversations. You’ll be glad you did!”
