3 Key Points
- Understand who you’re speaking to, understand where they are, where they’re going, and then potentially that will give you a better opportunity for you to put your point across.
- It’s not only about what you’re saying, it’s how you’re saying it, and then you speak with it, and then ask for the order and operate with fun, and with humor. Understand that people may say no, and everything’s gonna be okay, and then you can move on to the next one.
- Unfortunately, too many people that I meet, they just do not take action. And I’ve seen them in exactly the same place one year, three years, five years, six years, seven years, hey, there were a bit more knowledgeable, they maybe have more gray hair, or maybe no hair. But you know, they’re still in the same place. So take action. And then you know, there’s so many people out there that are so generous with their time. A lot of times we struggled to ask for help, for support, for advice, for you know, for whatever it is. And if you put yourself out there, there are so many other people that are accessible and are willing to help. So go and ask for support. Go and ask for support and take action.
[05:03]: I always have that sense of kind of being in control of kind of my own destiny, I suppose. But, but yeah, no, you know, it takes time. When as they say, I think when you’re, when you’re younger, you set fires and when you’re older, you put them out, so I think I’m on that, on that latter page, latter stage of my life right now.
[05:36]: Sometimes, unfortunately, you can say you know, you speak too passionately, and too honestly, and some people can’t deal with it.
[07:44]: At the end of the day, if you didn’t sell, you didn’t make any money. So, I learned to overcome that very quickly.
[08:53]: I think, I think, the people have to you know, especially in in a digital world nowadays, it’s a lot easier when you’re not necessary speaking on the phone, to be able to you know, to prepare a I don’t know, to study marketing, ie funnels and what it takes to create a campaign.
[09:17]: Being able to engage through your emails and your communications is is the first step in building rapport if you’re struggling, or one of those struggle to get over the phone. But when it comes down to me, I think when I what I’ve done, what I’ve done or helps me is I just, and I mean, they bring the charm on is, is I I tried to take a little bit, I tried to take the stress out of it and make it fun.
[09:39]: Because if we make it fun, and I take them on a journey of where I am going to help them with or how I’m going to take what we’re going to take them through and how I can help them, and I show them that, that journey, you know, visually so they can live it, they can feel it.
[11:06]: I believe that if we have expertise, and we we’re passionate about what we do, and how we do it, that passion will come across, and if you are able to take as I said, people on this journey, people will buy from you.
[13:42]: I think that the challenge that there is is that there’s too much we’re dictated too much by media, social media, by you know, the phone that email, and we can we’re missing that that connectivity. I am a great believer. I mean, you know, listen, we, I went, I’ve gone through all the marketing periods of no email, emails did not exist, and internet didn’t exist. And then emails was ridiculous when you send an email, and all of a sudden, wow, 44% open the email, and you know, and you had all these people buying and then all of a sudden you know, then telesales didn’t work anymore. And then now, you know, people don’t open emails and now telesales works more
[15:36]: I’m coming from a place of love, I’m saying this to you that I believe that what I have to offer to you, what I can offer you, which is the expo, and aid, is ultimately it. There isn’t anything better than this, and I believe this, and this is based on my experiences, based on my knowledge, is based on the wisdom. It’s based on all the ideas and pretty much the interactive into interactivity I’ve had with so many experts in the industry.
[17:16]: Start the journey, you know, start the journey! A lot of, a lot of the times is that people are waiting for perfection, they’re waiting for the right time for, they’re waiting for the exact amounts of money to be in the bank account. And I’m a great believer that a lot of the times you’re going to run before you walk.
[21:22]: I think obviously, some people are more gifted than others. I definitely think so. I mean, I’ve I’ve had the pleasure of working with phenomenal salespeople. You know, I’ve had wow, amazing, amazing salespeople that I’ve worked for. And I’ve learned a lot from them. So yeah, some people do have the charm. Some people have the gift. I definitely think it can be taught, I definitely think that you can learn and improve your skills like in everything and anything really, I really believe you can.

Bernardo Moya [3:17]
Thank you so much, Christine, I’m delighted to be here. Thank you so much for the opportunity.
Christine Schlonski [3:20]
Yeah, it’s so wonderful. And you build a brand all around the best you. And, that is something so many people are striving to become, and especially with entrepreneurs who want to give their gifts to the world who are looking forward to make the world a better place for them and everybody around them. I’m so super excited to dive in deeper into that conversation today. Can you give us a little bit of your background? Because you are so confident, you probably haven’t started there right away from the beginning, have you?
Bernardo Moya [4:06]
No, No, I didn’t. I, well my parent, my parents were both Spanish immigrants. Came to Spain, sorry, came to London after the war, especially my dad. And, and yeah, so I was brought up, I was brought up in London and, but when we moved back to Spain, because we moved back there when I was 9, I consider myself more English than Spanish, and I was brought up in in Spain and my mentality is Spanish as far as family, food, weather, climate, you know…
Christine Schlonski [4:40]
Bernardo Moya [4:42]
Yes, I chose well. But I’ve always have that sense of family, I was the oldest of the you know, in my, in my household with my brother. And I don’t know, I’ve always had that sense of responsibility. So I was always the captain of the football team, in charge of the class, the corporal in the army, so a long my life I was always a driver and the designed allocated the driver. So I always have that sense of kind of being in control of kind of my own destiny, I suppose. But, but yeah, no, you know, it takes time. When as they say, I think when you’re, when you’re younger, you set fires and when you’re older, you put them out, so I think I’m on that, on that latter page, latter stage of my life right now.
Christine Schlonski [5:20]
So, you’re, you’re way more relaxed than you used to be?
Bernardo Moya [5:23]
All my god. Absolutely, yes. I mean, I used to be a very very, I’m still very passionate, but I used to be too too passionate before.
Christine Schlonski [5:31]
Oh, is there such a thing that too passionate?
Bernardo Moya [5:34]
Well, it could be, it can get you in trouble because you know, sometimes, unfortunately, you can say you know, you speak too passionately, and too honestly, and some people can’t deal with it. But no I think kind of the good thing I’ve had, was I’ve always worked with English companies when I was young, and because I managed to keep my English so you know, I am pretty much bilingual. I’ve always had that sense of work ethic, I think from from from the English part of it. And ,and that’s been, that that has helped me because it is true. There’s a lot of mañana in, you know, in Spain, possibly mañana. But, so that has helped me.
Christine Schlonski [6:08]
Okay, wonderful. So, people say when you go for entrepreneurship, that itself is a self-developing, or self-development path. How did you start with your path?
Bernardo Moya [6:23]
I always have that sense of being my own boss. You know, I don’t know why, I always, I always wanted to be, I always wanted to be in control of my own destiny when it came down to business. I started quite earlier. But I did I started in sales. I always in the south of Spain, where I was from, either you worked in a nightclub or you worked in a restaurant or you were in real estate, there wasn’t many other options, you know? So, because I had English I got into timeshare. So I was always interested in sales and marketing. And, and that literally with which was developed over three, four years then put me on to kind of my first kind of real job, which was well my first entrepreneurship adventure, which was around 22 – 23, I started my first real estate. And, and yeah, that was the beginning of something that was, has been, it’s been a long journey. It’s been an interesting one.
Christine Schlonski [7:11]
Yeah, have you ever been afraid of sales or reluctant to make offers and ask people for money?
Bernardo Moya [7:20]
Well, you know what, they took that away from me very, very, from my early years, because when you when you get into timeshare, and obviously, the way it used to work when I was involved, it was, it was commission only. So you know, you, you, you literally so they, they provided you phenomenal trainings, I was trained by many Americans, and you know, the whole American, you know, building rapport, mirroring closing, that was part of my nature from my early years, but I learned a lot of very quickly and also because at the end of the day, if you didn’t sell, you didn’t make any money. So, I learned to overcome that very quickly. But what it allowed me to do was to really understand the model people and, and appreciate kind of more how to be able to engage and, and be a little, I suppose, turn on the charisma in order to kind of really people and, and connect at a deeper level.
Christine Schlonski [8:03]
Hmm, beautiful. So what, what advice would you give somebody so we have lots of listeners who have beautiful gifts, who want to make the world a better place, but asking for the sale, or asking for money, making an offer, an invitation is not always easy. What was maybe that one or two key points that helped you to, to overcome that challenge?
Bernardo Moya [8:29]
Well, it is at the end of the day, I find that myself I’m saying as a promoter and running events I do come across a lot of people that are very talented at what they do, but then they struggled to build their brand or take it to the next level. And the reason is that because as they struggle to understand that there’s, there’s, there has to be a business aspect to this. There has to be an opportunity for you to be able to you know, to make a living because if not, you can’t provide a service. So I think, I think, the people have to you know, especially in in a digital world nowadays, it’s a lot easier when you’re not necessary speaking on the phone, to be able to you know, to prepare a I don’t know, to study marketing, ie funnels and what it takes to create a campaign. So right, proper emails, I mean, I’m a big fan of Russell Brunson and Click Funnels and, you know, he says you’re always a copy away from a, from a bestseller from a great campaign. So, you know, being able to engage through your emails and your communications is is the first step in building rapport if you’re struggling or one of those struggle to get over the phone. But when it comes down to me, I think when I what I’ve done, what I’ve done or helps me is I just, and I mean, they bring the charm on is, is I I tried to take a little bit, I tried to take the stress out of it and make it fun. Because if we make it fun, and I take them on a journey of where I am going to help them with or how I’m going to take what we’re going to take them through and how I can help them, and I show them that, that journey, you know, visually so they can live it, they can feel it. And then I bring a little bit of humor to it kind of like you know, just getting them to laugh a little bit about kind of their problems, you know, and I just make fun of them, then it takes it takes the edge off. And, at the end of day that’s always helped me that’s always serving me, sometimes we just get too serious, to too uptight about who I am, what I do, and how much I should get paid. You know? And sometimes you you have to, you know connect with people on a deeper level. People buy from people, and if they don’t bite into you, it doesn’t matter how much expertise you have, how great your leaflet is, people aren’t gonna, aren’t gonna to necessarily buy from you.
Christine Schlonski [10:26]
Yeah, I, I totally get that. I always say turn sales conversations into fun conversations. Because that is where you actually connect. And you can make it easy. You don’t need to make it hard. But many people believe that, you know, asking for money is a totally serious thing. And you cannot have fun while doing it. Because it’s so serious.
Bernardo Moya [10:47]
It’s so serious. Yeah!
Christine Schlonski [10:48]
Yeah, totally. So it’s wonderful, that you’re sharing that perspective to give people while the, the opportunity to shift in their mindset and to try to see it from a different perspective, and also to just give it a try.
Bernardo Moya [11:05]
Yeah, and I’ll listen and I’m, look, I believe that if we have expertise, and we we’re passionate about what we do, and how we do it, that passion will come across, and if you are able to take as I said, people on this journey, people will buy from you. So I, i’ve always, I’ve always tried to make sure that I first there’s I think it’s a great quote from Steve Colby that in order for people to in order for you to be understood, first you need to understand, so the whole idea of having two years and listening, you know, first to what people want and listening I mean listening, listening and engaging. So you know if it’s, if it’s, if I’m speaking to someone, I make sure that I give them all my attention, my eyes will not move from their eyes. And, and and you know, and I’m connecting with them and they can feel that connection. And, and I’m listening to them and when I’ve listened to them, I’m obviously, then I will be preparing my responses. So many people that have such a ridiculously strong internal dialogue, that while someone is speaking, I would know this because unfortunately I may not be trained, so I can see the nonverbals moving left, right and center. So if someone is, is telling me something, and if and if I’m, I’m obviously listening, they will be aware of that. If on the other hand, you know, I’m speaking to someone and I can see or feel or hear that they’re not listening to me, then then it’s going to be difficult for me to engage. So first understand who you’re speaking to, understand where they are, where they’re going, and then potentially that will give you a better opportunity for you to put your point across.
Christine Schlonski [12:30]
Yeah, definitely active listening!
Bernardo Moya [12:33]
Christine Schlonski [12:33]
Not, not creating your answer while the other person is talking.
Bernardo Moya [12:37]
Ohh yeah, here’s a lot of that going on. Absolutely.
Christine Schlonski [12:40]
Yeah, and I think it’s something people need to learn to to give themselves a space to connect. Because often we think, well, we don’t have time, or we need to hurry up. But I think creating that, that magical space where two people get together in a conversation, and each person allows the other one to finish their thoughts, especially when it comes to the question, are you ready to move forward? Like really allowing that space for the, for the person to answer with a yes or with a no, is something that people often can’t give, because they are so afraid of what might come next.
Bernardo Moya [13:22]
Yeah, no, I agree. And, and I think part of it is that, I just think that, you know, we need, a lot of people need to, need to understand and prioritize on on on the idea and the vision of really trying to help and support people with where they’re going. I believe that, I think that the challenge that there is is that there’s too much we’re dictated too much by media social media, by you know, the phone the email, and we can we’re missing that that connectivity. I am a great believer. I mean, you know, listen, we, I went, I’ve gone through all the marketing periods of no email, emails did not exist, and internet didn’t exist. And then emails was ridiculous when you send an email, and all of a sudden, wow, 44% open the email, and you know, and you had all these people buying and then all of a sudden you know, then telesales didn’t work anymore. And then now, you know, people don’t open emails and now telesales works more than they used to be. And now sending things through the post, which people didn’t want. Now people want. So, you know, the way we communicate changes, has changed and we need to be able to adapt. But for me, there’s nothing like connecting with someone and, and you know, things, you know, zoom, skype call, you know, is so much better. And I always kind of, I emphasize with my team, as well as if I’m communicating with someone I love using, I usuall use zoom, you know, to record a video messages because I much I’m dyslexic, I type very quickly, but I’m dyslexic. So I can really put my point across if I put in a video message instead of actually putting in a text message. And I feel that people are able to connect with me with my expressions, my hands, whatever it is that I’m saying. So, it’s not only about what you’re saying, it’s how you’re saying it. And, and then yeah, speak with passion, and then ask for the order, and ask for it with fun, and with humor, and understand that people might say no, and everything’s gonna be okay. And, and then you can move on to the next one.
Christine Schlonski [15:09]
So how do you deal with a no? What does it mean for you?
Bernardo Moya [15:14]
It means that I didn’t really put my, my point across, clearly enough. I say this, I always use this sentence a lot, when I, went out whatever when I talk when I’m when I’m running my legacy clubs, or whatever it is, I always say, I’m coming from a place of love. Okay, and I mean that is because I’m going to come from a place of love, everything that I’m going to say to you is good because I come from a place of love. And if I’m coming from a place of love, I’m saying this to you that I believe that what I have to offer to you, what I can offer you, which is the expo, and aid, is ultimately it. There isn’t anything better than this, and I believe this, and this is based on my experiences, based on my knowledge, is based on the wisdom. It’s based on all the ideas and pretty much the interactive into interactivity I’ve had with so many experts in the industry. Now, if I if if you decide not to choose us, it’s because I obviously haven’t been able to explain it properly, because if I did, then, you know, the only reason that would stop you investing in this is simply the money, you wouldn’t have the money. Because if not, you know, so if I’m coming from a place of love, and and I do so when I do this, and I then I am I’m also happy to say look, if for whatever reason, if for whatever reason, you decided not to take action, which I would think you would be mad if you didn’t, you know, so bringing a bit of humor in. And then, and I know that’s not to be your case, of course. But then if it did, then what I would say is that I’m okay with that. I’m okay with that. Because with the greatest of respect, I have a proven track record, I’ve been able to build an event that has grown doubled in size from year to year to year, and a 14 and a half thousand people show up is because obviously, they kind of believe in the same kind of ideas that I do.
Christine Schlonski [16:46]
Bernardo Moya [16:46]
And then and then silences, silence is a very important. Just leave a nice silence there, it’s a little bit holy place.
Christine Schlonski [16:55]
So what would you say to somebody who starts out their business or is like, really at the beginning and creating a coaching business or has made might be a creative or a healer? That, you know, they can’t look back at such a break and track record as you. What advice would you give them to start that journey?
Bernardo Moya [17:16]
Welll start the journey, you know, start the journey! A lot of, a lot of the times is that people are waiting for perfection, they’re waiting for the right time for, they’re waiting for the exact amounts of money to be in the bank account. And I’m a great believer that a lot of the times you’re going to run before you walk. And and and because you know what if everyone that’s explored, adventured, invented, you know, been a successful entrepreneur was waiting for the right environment, you know what it would have never happened. And this never happened. So the fact is, we’ve got to take action, there’s just too many people that dream, they have these concepts of, of becoming and helping and supporting people, but they’re waiting for the perfect moment. So my suggestion is take action, just go for it. You gotta go, you know. So if you’re going to get involved in an event, or you’re going to get involved in getting your book published, or you’re going to do something and it’s further down your timeline, I’m saying six months from now, a year from now, just put it in, lock it in, there’s a moment you start locking in, you know, commitments and goals and things that you want to achieve and do, things will start falling into place, you know, the universe, you, your work, serendipity, whatever it is, it’s going to start making those things happen. It’s only when you start focusing and you and you take action. Unfortunately, just too many people that I meet, they just do not take action. And I’ve seen them in exactly the same place one year, three years, five years, six years, seven years, hey, there were a bit more knowledgeable, they maybe have more gray hair, or maybe no hair. But you know, they’re still in the same place. So take action. And then you know, there’s so many people out there that are so generous with their time. You know, I’ve see, we met didn’t we? And we met for what five minutes? And you asked me, and here I am. You know, so people are so generous with their time. And a lot of times we struggled to ask for help, for support, for advice, for you know, for whatever it is. And if you put yourself out there, I’ve had so many people come to me. And you know, I’m accessible, and theere are so many other people that are accessible and are willing to help. So go and ask for support. Go and ask for support and take action.
Christine Schlonski [19:07]
Great, great, great advice. Do you remember maybe the time before you saw timeshare? Was there something like, what was the first thing you ever sold in your life? Do you, do you remember that?
Bernardo Moya [19:21]
Oh dear, well, this is going back now. What did I sell? I think the first thing that I would probably consider selling selling would have been definitely would have definitely been timeshare. Before that, obviously I had some motorbikes, some I used to work in a bar. Actually, you know what, if anything, if anything? I yes, sorry. It’s just come back to me Christine! I’m there now. Okay. I, I started so my expos now, which are very big, and I started doing parties. So I started as a DJ, I started as a DJ when I was 15 years of age. My mom put me forward as a DJ for this place that just open for young for teenagers. And all I had, I had a little record player had absolutely no idea how to be a DJ, but my mom said I was. So there I was I rocked up to this place and then became a DJ. But that brought me into the music industry. And then I think within two years, I was running clubs. So what I was doing is I was selling tickets to parties, I was selling tickets to parties, and I was filling in nightclubs and things like that. So those were the first things that I really started selling. That, that brought me I suppose a little bit onto the path that I am now funny enough. So yes, thank you for taking me there that was a selling, selling selling booze and alcohol in in nightclubs. That’s the way I started selling.
Christine Schlonski [20:39]
That’s good. We’ve had all kinds of different story so far at, on Heart Sells! from baseball cards to little stone self painters, sneaking off to the neighbors asking for money for the artwork. So it’s always interesting to find out what what people were actually selling for the very first time. And often it has something to do with where they are now. Like some creative connection.
Bernardo Moya [21:06]
It’s a great question. It’s a great question that is. Yeah, probably definitely is. Yeah.
Christine Schlonski [21:09]

You know, I’ve had wow, amazing, amazing salespeople that I’ve worked for. And I’ve learned a lot from them. So yeah, some people do have the charm. Some people have the gift. I definitely think it can be taught, I definitely think that you can learn and improve your skills like in everything and anything really ,I really believe you can. But yeah, you know, the the art of, there is an art of selling. And some people are more gifted than others. And they’ve luckily went on that route of, you know, of selling things. Yeah, absolutely.
