Many lawyers struggle with sales. However, Klyn Elsbury suggests that making a sale isn’t actually that different from negotiating in a courtroom. Today, she’s here to share her tried-and-true method for improving your sales game and successfully closing a deal.

One of the main elements of Klyn’s sales process is connection. As she says, successful sales aren’t about rapidly expanding your network and moving on when you don’t get the sale; they’re about creating genuine relationships and deepening the connections you already have. According to Klyn, the people that can change your business are probably already in your network — you just have to reach out!
