Before I tell you about this game-changing program, let’s talk about who this is really for…
You’re an ambitious, empathetic, change maker who loves your work but doesn’t love selling it. You’re tired of struggling to get clients and are ready to build a business you love, that fear nor doubt, will hold you back from. It’s time to use your special gifts to make a difference and create financial freedom for you and your family.
If you’re a Coach, Consultant, Workshop Leader or Course Creator that:
You are not alone!
There is another way… A better way to sell, work, and live:
With SELL FROM LOVE ACADEMY you will learn:
how to love yourself, love your client, and love your offer so you can earn more profit, reach more clients, and make a bigger impact.
Hi, I’m Finka, your guide and mentor here at the SELL FROM LOVE ACADEMY
For so long I thought I had to change who I was in order to fit into the world. I wanted to be seen as being the right kind of person who delivered results, met clients’ needs, and never relented in order to be valued at my work.
I knew there had to be a better way, a better way to connect with clients, create solutions that solved their problems, and feel good about sharing what I had to offer.
Sell From Love is built on my more than two-decade career in sales and a foundation of research that included 235 global interviews with entrepreneurs, financial advisers, coaches, consultants, and service-based professionals. I’ve participated in more than 800 coaching sessions, observing leaders directly coaching their sales teams and helping them improve their sales coaching skills so that their teams could sell with confidence, build client loyalty, and grow their business.
There is a better way to sell, work and live!
If you’re ready to experience greater meaning in your work, reach the right clients and offer a valuable solution that people need, I can help you.
What I believe...
- I believe that most of us don’t consider ourselves as salespeople, yet we find ourselves in selling situations most of the time.
- I believe that selling is a skill you can learn and have ease, grace and dignity doing it.
- I believe that current sales tactics and practices are outdated and no longer work for the informed client.
- I believe that people don’t want transactions, they need and crave transformations.
- I believe that the secret formula to modern selling is authentic integrity, empathetic communication, and purposeful impact.
- I believe that love-based intentions and actions are fundamental to your business success over fear-based intentions and actions.
- I believe that we buy with our heart (emotions) and justify with our brain (intellect).
- I believe love is the strongest emotion we can activate in ourselves, our clients and business.
- I believe that businesses who help clients build an emotional connection (fall in love) with them will win in the future economy.
- I believe that we can use selling as a practice and way forward to raising human consciousness by bringing more integrity, empathy, and love to the world.
Although I didn’t mean it that way, I was too “transactional” before this program. I thought subliminally: If I charge people money, I must offer a lot of content, so that they see the value an “buy”. That was wrong thinking that led to the fact that I had pricing difficulty. I have learned here in the Sell From Love Academy that I have transformation I am bringing to my clients. Taking this course helped me approach people with my offers and for the first time I sold my program.
You can have good ideas and intention so that you can help many people succeed. But, if you don’t know what you’re really offering and how you’re going to get it to people, it unfortunately ends up being a wasted effort. If you really want to enrich this world with your offerings, you should take this course. It is an ultimate alignment with you and your offering, authentically and with integrity. After this course you will have a different attitude in how you present yourself and your offer.

“The Sell from Love course exceeded my expectations, in more ways than I can count. Finka brings knowledge, experience, grace and empathy, and takes the fear out of the intimidating notion of selling - especially for Highly Sensitive people, like myself. When I completed my first sale, I was proud, but the support and celebration from Finka and the entire SFL community was a testament to the 'all in' support I felt from the beginning of the program. The content is relevant, the tools are invaluable. During my time in the program, I delivered my first presentation that resulted in 3 sales, and this is just the start! My transformation came from the knowledge I acquired, but even more, from the confidence I gained.”
Louise Taylor, Brand and Marketing Strategist

Regardless of if you are feeling stuck, know you have a great idea but haven't started building, need the final push to launch or if you are ready to revisit your offer and approach, you belong in the Sell From Love Academy. I walked in struggling with pulling my vision together and articulating the transformation I can provide. During my time in the program I secured an initial investor, gained commitment from contributing members, began to build a client list and booked 3 corporate engagements.”
Melissa Marcelissen, CEO and Founder Vision Leadership, Equity, Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging Strategist
“Fear, is an unknown. There is no reason to have it here, you will have no fear and clarity of who you are and who your clients want to work with when you're done.
I now know how to sell and brand me with confidence. I walked away with the mindset I need to achieve my big dream.”

Here's What You'll Walk Away With
Sell From Love consists of 7 core modules that walk you through the three pillars:
Unlock the Power of Love
The goal of this module is to increase awareness of when you are selling from love vs. fear and how embracing a new definition of selling will help you move closer to love.
In this module you will:
Claim Your Brilliant Difference
The goal of this module is to help you discover and name your Brilliant Difference. This uniqueness you bring is here to add value and make change in the world. It’s here to make the word a better place. Focusing on who you are and finding the words to articulate your Brilliant Difference is fundamental to loving yourself, the first pillar to sell from love.
In this module you will:
Use Love as a Sales Strategy
The goal of this module is to help you move from your comfort zone and into your courage zone with love. Selling is filled with opportunities for fear to poke its head up inevitably holding you back from sharing your work and making the impact you know you are here to make. This is why we need to acknowledge that fear will be there, especially in times when you’re doing something you’ve never done before or reaching for goals you’ve never set out to accomplish before. This module is all about equipping you with the right tools to move forward with confidence, elegance, and ease.
In this module you will:
Discover Your Essential Client Conversation Skills
The goal of this module is to help you learn and understand how to create an environment that facilitates trust, connection, and confidence with your clients. You play a critical role in making this happen for yourself and your clients, so fear does not get in the way of your intentions and impact. In this module you’ll learn how to create a safe space for your clients that help them choose you as their trusted adviser. You’ll also walk away with the most important conversation skills you need to that will help you do that.
In this module you will:
Define Your Clients' Transaction to Transformation Story
The goal of this module is to help you identify what is really happening when you sell. There’s the thing you are selling, and then there’s the thing your client is buying. What are the differences? And how do you not let selling from fear interfere and water down your transformation to a transaction.
At every stage of selling, fear has an opportunity to enter, this is even more prevalent when we are engaging and enrolling a client into our offers. This module is all about getting you aligned to what you are really selling – a transformation and giving you the tools to communicate that to your clients. This way you and your client are on the same page with what you are selling and what they are buying.
In this module you will:
Craft a Compelling Offer
The goal of this module is to clarify and confirm your most important thing – your offer. In essence, it is what are you selling that you will use to serve your clients with and help facilitate the transformations they are seeking.
There are two important parts of the offer conversation we need to highlight here –
- What are you offering to your clients – what are they getting?
- What your clients are offering to you – what you are receiving for extending that offer?
In this module you will:
Design a Marketing Strategy that Feels Good
The goal of this module is to make your Brilliant Difference and Most Important Thing Offer – VISIBLE.
There’s a saying, build it and they will come. We wish that it worked this way, rather fear does; because then we wouldn’t have to put our selves out there, up for judgement and rejection. Sharing your work, your services and expertise can be scary. But when we come from a place of love, as author Susan Jeffers says we “feel the fear and do it anyway.”
In this module you will:
4 Bonus Offerings!
Sell From Love Playbook
Imagine what it would be like to have all your branding, sales, and marketing strategies in one place. Imagine what it would be like if you had the clarity on the value you brought, who you serve, the transformations you deliver, and how your offers serve your clients and help you make money – on any given day.
No more doubt, indecision, or time and focus lost due to confusion and disorganization.
It’s possible! The Sell From Love Playbook is your one stop shop resource that you will create and walk away with in the Sell From Love Academy. Have more confidence in yourself, make better decisions, bring more focus, and save loads of time all with your personalized Sell From Love Playbook.
Offer a Day Practicum
The problem with most courses and digital programs is that you’re left to fend for yourself when it comes time to implement and put the stuff you learn into action. Well not here in the Sell From Love Academy. You will not only learn how to sell and market your products and services with more confidence, ease and integrity, you will also apply and practice your newfound Sell From Love knowledge and skills collectively. Once we complete the core curriculum, we spend a week together making offers! What that means is that you get to take action immediately so you can make sales and serve your ideal clients right away. Not only that, but you also get daily morning huddles to coach you through any fear blocks and inspire you to find the courage to invite clients into your offers so you can earn more profit and make a positive impact.
Three Integration Weeks
Often learning feels like you’re drinking out of a firehose. Lots of new information, tips, and tools to learn to help you achieve your results. But all that does is create more confusion, overwhelm, and doubt. Where do you start? When will you have the time? How will you ever get proficient? The Sell From Love Academy has taken this into account. We want you to feel confident, calm, clear, and certain you can get it done! We have THREE “Integration Weeks” incorporated into the program. You will have a week to catch up and put the finishing touches on each of the Sell From Love Pillars. PLUS – at the end of each Integration Week you will present and get immediate feedback on your outcomes for that respective Sell From Love Pillar. How amazing is that? You get time to get back on track and coaching to keep you on your rails.
Annual Planning Virtual Retreat
What would 2022 be like for you if you got clear on your goals, aligned to your intentions, and felt supported in your big vision? How about? More focus, energy, excitement, courage, and confidence to make it all happen. This special bonus will help you not only earn more profit, reach more clients, and make a bigger impact; you will have a thoughtful, do-able, and action-oriented plan that you won’t be able to wait to implement. Your 2022 will be in the bag, a dream waiting for you to catch up to. This promises to be a fun, full day, where you will have an opportunity to celebrate who you are and contrive a plan to become more of who you see yourself being.
If most of the business-building advice you see feels like it doesn’t apply to your business, or doesn’t feel in-integrity with how you want to build your business, then this is the gentle, respectful, heart-centred program you’ve been searching for!
The Sell From Love Academy provides an entirely new framework within which to build a thriving, fulfilling, meaningful business. It supports creativity, self-compassion, respect and action. It is constructive, encouraging, inspiring and fun. By the end of the course I had created, priced, packaged and pitched a brand new, group program that will add $4500 of revenue to my next quarter!

I get it! I was like that too till I found the right program that had my people. I often found that the people I was surrounded by at work or home didn’t always have the same interests or ambitions. It was difficult for them to understand, connect, and relate to my entrepreneurial desires and change maker spirit. Finding a like minded and spirited tribe as transformed how I look at group programs but more importantly transformed my leadership and business. As one of our previous students as said” It’s like spending time with your business BFF’s.” I say, jump in, and you’ll see your network expand exponentially.

How does that sound?
Before I took the program, I was afraid to put myself out there and charge for things. I was scared of having the pricing conversation and felt stuck in “yucky” mode when it came to selling. I was making it mean something personally about me when I had to sell instead of giving indiscriminately. Now, after the program I am able to state my pricing and even convinced my business partner to NOT reduce our rates for an upcoming offer we had. I am able to really focus on loving my offer and making it an extension of the value and contribution I want to make in the world without feeling all self-conscious about it. If you’re overthinking it you’re doing yourself a disservice and wasting time and precious dollars! I wouldn’t waste one more hour and start selling from love now.

Finka, The Sell From Love program and the community Finka created really made the difference for me and helped me to finally get my many thoughts and ideas together into something I can really love and feel confident selling. Before the program, I had may thoughts, ideas, and skills that I struggled to bring together into a cohesive business model and offering. Now the path is so clear, my business model and offering are something I can get behind with confidence because I know the value and transformation it will bring to my clients. As I worked through the program, I was immediately applying what I learned, and my clients experienced the difference and I have had more referrals as result of it. This program is the best investment I could have made for myself, my business, and my clients!
