Today, we’re lucky to have the owner of Life Puzzle on the show. Chandell Labbozzetta began her business career at just 14 years of age. She later worked in business development and marketing. But after a decade of professional experience she was totally burnt out. She discovered Neuro-Linguistic Programming a form of psychotherapy that helps professionals to improve their self-worth.
Chandell had a lot of success in her life very early. She was a top salesperson with Nutri-metrics while still a teenager. She had gone on to build a great career as a marketer and business development coach. But despite all that she was incredibly depressed. Her mother took her to a hypnotherapist who specialized in NLP. She was drawn to this form of therapy and it transformed her life. She became so passionate about the practice that she turned it into her full-time job.
Chandell says NLP is the language we use to determine our behaviour. It helps people to access their unconscious mind using language. People often rely on willpower to change their behaviour. But willpower depends on the conscious mind which is too easily manipulated by emotions. Many professionals suffer from an imposter syndrome – the idea that they are frauds who will soon be discovered. Chandell and her team work with their clients to expunge those thoughts from their unconscious minds.
Chandell has used NLP in her sales training courses. The word “sales” has a very negative connotation. It evokes ideas of manipulation and exploitation. Many of those ideas are held by the people actually doing the selling. She is interested in how people do things not why they do them. Sales is the art of influence. The key thing is how influential you are at sharing your ideas with others. Understanding how your unconscious behaviour affects your ability to influence others is really important here.
Everybody has a different understanding of the world and a different way of communicating with it. Making assumptions about why people do the things they do is what creates confusion. Ask questions instead of making assumptions.

More about this Show
We started Business Legal Lifecycle to create a simple way for you to understand complex legal terms. Most importantly we want to help you to develop a plan to take your business successfully into the future. There’s a startling statistic the underscores the importance of developing a solid plan. The majority of business owners are just seven months away from losing everything. A single aspect of your business that is not set-up correctly can shut down your whole operation very quickly. Legal advice is not cheap and even when you can afford it there is often a divide between lawyers and their clients. We want to close that gap once and for all. We want to put legal knowledge and tools into your hand to prevent the worst from happening to you.
Twice a week we are going to deliver those tools right to your home or office with Business Legal Lifecycle TV. We’ll start the week with Fast Fix Monday, a short 5-10 minute video that will tackle a single issue that businesses have to deal with. Then on Wednesday’s our main show will feature with more fulsome discussions and interviews all delivered in a straightforward and easy to understand format.
