Frequently Asked Questions

Should my employer pay for my sales training?

My answer is – absolutely. I believe strongly in developing my sales teams. They’re the lifeblood of any organization. And, the companies who take the time to train their teams outperform their competitors 4 to 1.

However, if your company doesn’t have that mindset there is no reason why you should go without. That is why this course was priced for the individual. I want you to have the same exact training experience that I have delivered thousands of times in corporate classrooms at a price that you can afford.

And remember, the course and all the updates are yours forever. So come on board and join the Breakaway Tribe – a community of thousands of sales reps and entrepreneurs around the globe who are all striving to get better every day. If you do the work that I have outlined in this school you will have a massive ROI – I promise!

One last point, you can test drive the first three modules risk free. If for any reason you are unhappy with the course let us know and you will receive 100 % of your money back. Just follow the instructions and you are protected. We believe in this program so much that we are willing to make that pledge!

Ok … OK …one more point. Sell your employer on Breakaway Sales School and we all win!

I don’t own a business, I’m in sales. Will Breakaway Strategy School still be of use to me?

I get this question all the time. The answer is – yes! The five key questions that are the foundation of the Breakaway Strategy Model are:

1. Where am I now?
2. Where do I want to go?
3. How will I get there?
4. Who will do what?
5. How will I measure the results?

These same questions apply to running your sales territory. You are the CEO of your sales territory. These strategy tools and underlying process will be invaluable to you. I advise all my sales students to start with Breakaway Sales School and if they need more they can move to Breakaway Strategy School. If your employer invests in Breakaway Strategy School then you’re all set!

I know I’m going to want to talk to you and ask a ton of questions. How do I do that?

I am always available at mike@mikekerrison.com and I would encourage you to start with email.  If you need to get voice to voice … no problem.  Simply request a time for a conversation via email, leave your phone number, and I will do my best to call you at your requested time.  Finally, our staff is available by email all the time at TeamKerrison@Mikekerrison.com. Just connect with us and we’ll get back to you quickly.

Can I share the course with others?

There is nothing in our agreement that prevents it but we issue one private username and password which is just for you.  For corporate accounts each sales rep gets their own username and password to use.  The programs are tailored and priced to fit small companies, too. This way each sales rep can study at their own speed and in their own way.

I’ve been selling for years. Is Breakaway Sales School for rookies or can I benefit as well?

The real question is do you have twenty years of experience or do you have one experience twenty times. My graduates have been thirty-five year veterans and thirty-five day newbies. This program is for both of you. I have had veterans say to me I had no idea I was missing this much. This will change my career and for sure my attitude. And, brand new reps need to set a permanent foundation to support their career. This program is universal – everyone benefits!

We all need to improve. A pro is good at what they do and they know why they’re good. They have the ability to critique their own performance. And they’re always getting better, because if you stop getting better you stop being good. Join the Breakaway Sales Tribe and get better with us.

What if I outgrow my license and need to add additional sales reps?

No sweat. We only charge the upgrade portion which is clearly marked in our pricing section.  So, if you go from two reps to five reps your upgrade fee would be $1,497.00. We priced this program so everyone can benefit.  And, if you have ten or more reps you get a terrific bargain.  Connect with us at TeamKerrison@mikekerrison.com if you have any questions.

Don’t I need an experienced facilitator for my strategic planning event?

It depends.  A small organization may not be able to afford a facilitator but they still have the same need as a larger company.  That is why I have provided a Facilitation Handbook with your training.  This handbook provides everything you will need to facilitate this crucial meeting. Now you can lead the effort yourself.  Otherwise, the Handbook is a great guide for helping you to select an outside or inside professional.

Is my credit card information safe?

Absolutely.  This site uses a powerful, modern secure socket layer to transmit important data like credit card information.  Payments are powered by gateway provider Stripe, and industry leader in e-commerce.  I don’t store any credit card information, I don’t see your credit card number.

Here’s what Stripe has to say:

Stripe forces HTTPS for all services, including our public website. We regularly audit the details of our implementation: the certificates we serve, the certificate authorities we use, and the ciphers we support. We use HSTS to ensure browsers interact with Stripe only over HTTPS. Stripe is also on the HSTS preloaded lists for both Chrome and Firefox.

All card numbers are encrypted on disk with AES-256. Decryption keys are stored on separate machines. None of Stripe’s internal servers and daemons are able to obtain plaintext card numbers; instead, they can just request that cards be sent to a service provider on a static whitelist. Stripe’s infrastructure for storing, decrypting, and transmitting card numbers runs in separate hosting infrastructure, and doesn’t share any credentials with Stripe’s primary services (API, website, etc.).

How does the money back guarantee work?

After completing Breakaway Sales School or Breakaway Strategy School, if you are unhappy or dissatisfied in any way with the schools, we will refund 100% of your money within the first 60 days.  We ask that you turn in your assignments so we know you gave it your best shot.  And, please share with us what you were unhappy about so we can both learn from the experience.

Can I hire Mike for private education and consulting or just the schools?

Simple answer is, yes.  I do over 30 Private Workshops every year.  However, for an individual or a small company, I would encourage you to fully explore the on-line school first.

For most private schools I include the Breakaway online schools at no extra charge. In other words, you will receive the online schools for free as part of the deal. Contact me at mike@mikekerrison.com for a customized private training course or take a look at Breakaway Sales LIVE, another great alternative.

Is your school like typical classroom academia? And, are there tests I have to take?

Nothing about my schools are like typical classroom academia.  And there are NO TESTS.  Think of the school as your own personal coaching experience hand crafted to meet your needs.  I designed the delivery to be a one-on-one scenario.  You will feel as though I am sitting across the table from you as your coach.  In fact, you can take a peek into the classroom right now to get a feel for how this will work. There are situational role plays that are encouraged in Breakaway Sales School and we will show you how to set them up for success.  But, the true test is in the field.  We want you to share your success with the Breakaway Sales Tribe an international group of Breakaway Performers of which you will be a lifetime member!  You will then learn from each other which is an unprecedented way to sustain your success.

How can I justify the expense for the school?

This is a no-brainer. The individual spends $ 599.00 for Breakaway Sales School which is half the annual cost of a cell phone. In exchange, you will receive a lifetime education in world-class sales skills at a fraction of the typical market price. The payback will happen with your first sale. This is a career move, not a course. This is not available anywhere else in the marketplace. Make the investment! You have a money back guarantee. My graduate testimonials are provided to help you with your decision.

The price for Breakaway Strategy School is so low at $849.00 that based upon what you get you can’t afford not to invest. This school is a business game changer and once again you receive a money back guarantee.
