This series is a requirement to be eligible for membership in The Happiness Sisterhood …a community of women committed to changing the world by experiencing more happiness.
The Positive Dog, by Jon Gordon
This series is an in depth look at happiness and how Positive Psychology can lead us to more success, better health, and more fulfilling relationships. Sound too good to be true? When you learn to use the power of your mind, anything is possible.
The Positive Dog is a simple fable about a powerful path to happiness and success. With Positive Psychology principles you can train your brain to be happier, see more opportunity, and be more resilient which are all components of success. In fact, researchers have shown that happiness is a requirement for success, not a result of success. This is an antidote to the negativity and challenges all around us.
What is the Book Mentoring Series?
A series of six discussions with a small group of like-minded business women. Mentoring and accountability assure that you implement the ideas that will lead to more happiness and more success.
Format: small group meets for three, 3 hour sessions (total 9 hours). Participants experience a facilitated discussion of the book with a focus on implementation.
Each participant discovers an action plan that works for her to become happier. Participants receive peer mentoring and coaching from the facilitator to assure they can implement the ideas. Accountability is built into the process so you get results.
What you get:
- Homework assignments to develop some of the key practices taught in the book.
- Facilitated discussion to uncover how ideas can help you.

Well, I admit I was a skeptic to start out–I mean, give me a break, coming together to talk about happiness??? But this has been the start of what I anticipate to be an incredible journey of self-discovery and “other” discovery. What a great journey to be on, and with so many other wonderful women. Thanks to Victoria for being our expedition leader”!

After starting my own business, I learned that many talented business professionals don’t like to sell. They especially don’t like to sell themselves. But, if your knowledge and experience are part of your value proposition, you have to sell yourself… no one else can do an adequate job of representing all you know.
Sales Coaching …for Non-Sales Professionals
Are you a knowledge professional who is passionate about the value you deliver to your clients? Chances are you are not a professional sales person, nor do you want to become one, so traditional sales training and books are not for you.
Victoria works as a virtual sales coach with individuals and top performers in small companies. She establishes a foundation of knowledge that translates to business building actions. The foundation includes:
- Your unique sales challenges and prescribe behaviors to overcome the challenge without changing your natural style.
- Your unique value proposition and marketing messages that set you apart from the competition.
- A profile of your ideal prospects and how to sell to them (pricing, timing, and language to use to get a buying decision).
- A networking strategy and actions necessary to fill your pipeline with qualified prospects.
Don’t Take Our Word for It
Victoria Trafton works with our top producers to get them to the next level in sales. Her sales coaching is unique and powerful for each individual. She works with their individual style to help them fill their pipeline and meet their goals. I get feedback on how much everyone likes working with Victoria …and gets tremendous value. They get what they need; they’re getting more referrals and meeting their sales goals, and I feel like I have a partner in coaching them to success …for themselves and the firm.”

Influence With Style
People judge each other in seconds without ever speaking…it’s human behavior. It is likely 15% of the people you meet won’t like you! As many as 40% aren’t naturally comfortable with you! Learn how to recognize all four behavioral styles and adapt to each of them to replace negative judgments with trust and liking. In the Influence With Style class you will learn:
- How you are perceived by others
- Your own strengths that set you apart from your competitors
- How to effectively communicate with other styles
- How to get others to make a buying decision.
Don’t Take Our Word for It
After taking the Influence With Style class, I was able to immediately apply the new information I had learned to close a $75K contract. Before the class, I likely would have tried to close this potential new customer quickly. After learning how to identify his behavioral style, I knew I had to present him with all the information he wanted and then wait on him to make his own decision. I got the call after two weeks to pick up the signed contract. We ultimately won this opportunity because we were “not as pushy as the competing vendors”. Without this training, I would have acted just like the other “pushy vendors” and probably lost the deal. I highly recommend this class to business professionals who want to get more business by learning how to treat others the way they want to be treated throughout your sales process.”

The secret to sales is learning how to read your customers! The Influence With Style class gives you a blueprint for reading prospects and customers alike. When you know what a person is really like you can build a relationship that turn into business. I learned there is at least one of the four behavioral styles that isn’t comfortable with my style. That eliminates about 20% of the people I meet from doing business with me … unless I adapt my style. Taking the behavioral class taught me how to relate better to those people by adapting my style. I am now able to get more business and create a better service experience for all my customers. I recommend it for anyone who brings in sales or handles customers.”
