How would your business & life change if you could breakthrough fears holding you back?
Welcome! I’m Anis Qizilbash
I believe the world will be a better place if we all followed our passion and be more engaged in life, getting paid well for doing what we love. So my mission is to add more value to your world by helping you appreciate your value, and gain confidence and clarity to improve your sales for your business and achieve the success that matters to you most.
From zero social skills to sales maven
When I started out in B2B sales I couldn’t say boo to a goose. I had absolutely zero social skills and no clue how to sell, a total social awkwardite and painfully shy – perfect ingredients for a sales person, right? Wrong!
But I learned from doing and constantly honing my craft. Over 20 years I’ve sold face-to-face in over 20 countries, across 5 continents, from selling £50 products to street traders to generating millions in revenue selling to multiple sectors. I achieved all of this by being the quietest salesperson and without turning into one of those annoying sales people.
The most powerful device ever given to you for change is your mind
Through Mindful Sales Training products, programmes and speaking, I’m on a mission to help you learn practical wisdom, strategies, and shortcuts to help you overcome fears, feel motivated, build your confidence and grow your sales, without turning into that annoying pushy salesperson, so you can continue sharing your unique gift with the world.

What’s Anis’ WHY?
This is more than a job for me, my mission is to help as many people as I can, everywhere, appreciate their value, and teach them to create value for others, so they can grow in their business and lives, and improve the lives of people around them.
Selling has such a bad rap and it’s an incredibly under-rated skill. I want to change that perception by showing nonsales people there’s a way of selling that aligns with their values, grounded in kindness, compassion and service, and awaken the potential inside them. Not only can sales skills help you influence others, they can also help you influence yourself to become a better version of yourself. I’m driven to help nonsales people see it’s already inside them, and that they are born to sell.
I’m also a advocate for inclusion and representation for minorities to be more visible, because we all need role models, so what also drives me to succeed is, to quote Vivian Baxter “Put my foot in the door so that women of every colour can walk over my foot.” Seeing someone like you on a stage is uplifting and empowering.

Nothing happens until a sale is made – Jim Barksdale, AT&T former CEO
I’m Anis Qizilbash and I’ve used my more than 20 years of sales experience selling to street traders, NGOs, multinationals companies, investment banks, and government, selling retail, advertising, sponsorship, research, software, services and technology, in startups and corporates, to create Mindful Sales Training.
I help entrepreneurs and freelancers who’ve never sold before, gain confidence and clarity to grow their sales, delivered through speaking and workshops, 1-2-1 life-coaching and sales coaching, as well as a suite of online sales courses. I am also the author of Grow Your Sales, Do What You Love: Mindful Selling for Entrepreneurs and Freelancers (order yours here) and Mindful Selling: Seven Principles to Banish Stress and Boldly Grow Your Impact, Your Way.
I jump out of bed with a big smile on my face because my students are crushing it (what my clients say). They’re using what I teach them to overcome their fear of selling, developing self-belief and confidence in their ability to grow their sales, doing what they love, with no prior sales experience. This is more than a job; I’m a passionate believer in entrepreneurship and am on a mission to transform the lives of as many people as I can, globally, using my gifts to support freelancers, entrepreneurs and non-sales people sell more effectively and build a stronger economy.
Previously, I served as a business mentor for StartUp Direct, U.K. government initiative offering new ventures financial support, where delivered workshops for promising new entrepreneurs. I also mentored on the Cherie Blair Foundation for Women’s Mentoring Women in Business Programme.
Happily married to my partner of ten years, and mother to Whiskey, a.k.a. Princess Play With Me All Day Long. I enjoy travelling the world with my beloved. I’m an aspiring singer, love swimming, a voracious reader, keen runner, and retired Karaoke Queen and break-dancer.
