IF YOU'RE LIKE MOST ESTHETICIANS...
You didn't get into professional skin care
for your love of sales.
Yet, your financial success (and your clients’ results) depend on retail sales!
This can be frustrating, even if you aren’t anxious about selling or being “pushy.” Because the outdated sales tactics we've all been taught simply don't work for the modern client —
at least not in terms of long-term relationships and loyalty.
In fact, through surveying and coaching thousands of estheticians and skin care professionals,
the #1 complaint we hear is: "my clients don’t understand the value of professional-grade home care."
This means what we're doing isn't working.
Hands up if
Frustrated and not taken seriously because your clients aren’t listening to your recommendations — so they aren’t getting results?
Defeated and undervalued because you put your ALL into your treatments — but your clients are purchasing online or taking skincare advice from celebrity "influencers?"
Tired of working to fill your books with new clients to make up for your lack of retail sales and rebookings?
Confused, because you follow the sales formulas you’ve been taught, attend your trainings, and know your products well — but it’s still such a struggle to consistently sell?
WE'VE ALL BEEN THERE.
But the sales tactics we've been taught no longer work...
listing features + benefits or hard-selling at the product wall
constantly telling your clients to stop buying from Amazon or MLMs
discounting because you believe your clients won't pay full price
Because none of these tactics position you as an expert in your client's eyes or inspire long-term trust.
Former Sales Hater.
Believe it or not, I'm an introvert who once despised retail sales. Yet, here I am, 15 years into my esthetics career and I have to say: sales is what I do best!
I learned that I didn't need to be an outgoing, natural "seller" to convince my clients to buy. Instead, I needed to be able to confidently communicate my expertise to my clients — to inspire them to intrust me 100% with their skin.
That's why I created Sales Haters Academy: to overhaul your communication, consultations, and complete client experience to do the selling FOR you — all using modern sales psychology and proven methods like Social Learning Theory and Client-Centred Care.
After coaching over 5000 skin care professionals around the globe for some of the industry's top brands, I can honestly say that my techniques work!
IT'S TIME TO CHANGE YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH SALES.
Imagine what it would be like to...
Attract your ideal
clients who value your unique offerings
Be seen as an expert and
sought out for your guidance
Communicate clearly + confidently without
Consistently meet your sales goals leading to big-picture career dreams

"I just wanted to thank you for creating this amazing program.

SKIN THERAPIST, AUSTRALIA
"I had good success before, but with the added tweaks (especially the ritual and experience training) I've been able to sell more every day. Last week I sold over $1200. I've also been able to apply these lessons to other areas of my business as well."

Home care guidance is an essential part of your service.
Think about it this way: You wouldn't continue to see a nutritionist that failed to give you guidance on what to eat at home, would you? No! Because you know you wouldn't get the results you're looking for.
Estheticians are not meant to be salespeople competing with non-professional retail giants or celebrity influencers. It's time to position yourself as an expert in skin — sought out by clients for personalized treatment plans including home care!
"Mara's expertise helped me gain my client's instant trust and gave my team the confidence that is needed when selling sophisticated skincare. Her training helped us to sell out of BioEffect Growth Factor Serum at a recent event, which retails at $220. The knowledge and confidence that I gained when working with Mara is inspiring and beyond helpful!"

"I noticed a huge difference in my skin therapists confidence and language right away. My whole team was excited and engaged through the whole Sales Haters program. Mara knowledge and modern sales approach was easy to follow and seriously impactful. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking to grow their sales!"

How is Sales Haters Academy different?
We get it, you've been burned before. You attend all your trainings, sign up for seminars, and know your products like the back of your hand — but you're still not meeting your daily goals.
The problem is: the features + benefits lists and marketing jargon we learn in the industry aren't effective. Today's consumer can smell a sales pitch from a mile away — and they'll do whatever they can to avoid it.
Your clients are looking for education, personalized experiences, and a skin health expert to empower them in their skin health journey!
That's why Sales Haters Academy teaches a big-picture, forward-thinking, business-changing formula that will change your relationship with your clients forever.

"This past weekend, I didn't realize how much knowledge I had gained until I had begun explaining to my client the importance of wearing SPF. I was able to confidently explain everything. She actually ended up purchasing 6 products from me. I was so happy with that sale. I owe it all to your course."
"I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the Sales Haters training. This has been such an eye-opener experience. It taught me how to work backwards and with that I have made a lot of changes to my services, product sales and just overall knowledge for my clients. I have taken a lot of courses in my time as an aesthetician and this one has been well worth it. Thank you so much."
