The biggest misconception about closing is that it happens at the end of a presentation. With that approach, time and money


wasted presenting to prospects who were never going to say, “yes” to begin with. I’ll teach you out to take the “ick” factor out of closing and make it feel like a natural next step in the sales process.

In this course, you will learn:

  • How to avoid learning manipulative closing techniques, and have the client close themselves
  • How to close a client before you’ve started a presentation or demo
  • Why people avoid closing the sale and how you can prevent this pitfall
  • Why you should not present if you can’t pre-close the client prior to the presentation
  • How to handle clients who want to negotiate price at the end of the presentation
  • How to shorten your sales cycle dramatically by closing properly
  • Assignment: Use the worksheet to structure and script your own close
  • CHALLENGE: Submit your close for feedback and view a sample submission
  • Certificate of Completion: Successfully pass the quiz to obtain your personalized certificate of completion


  • How to handle rejection
  • How to improve your relationship with money so you are not afraid to ask for it

Hi! I'm Jess.  Here's why you should learn from me...

Hi! I'm Jess. Here's why you should learn from me...

I'm Jess Magoch (pronounced MaGOOCH), Virtual Sales Trainer and mom of two little superheroes. I have a Bachelor's from NYU, built a $40M sales team from scratch for a healthcare startup in corporate America and taught my sales courses at the University of Pennsylvania's EDSI EdTech Startup Accelerator, The Business of Doing Good, TechGirlz and am an Alumna and Philadelphia Ambassador to the Pipeline Angels, a bootcamp that teaches women how to angel invest and invests in women-led social enterprises.

I've sold and have taught how to sell to individuals, large corporations, small to medium sized businesses, startups, channel partners and brokers. Now, as the CEO & Founder of JPM Sales Partners, I show social entrepreneurs, with my proven sales methodology and interactive online training course, how to master their sales conversations so they get excited about selling again.
Most people don't dream of being in sales  (I certainly didn’t).

Most people don't dream of being in sales (I certainly didn’t).

It comes with baggage and preconceived notions. But let's face it, without sales you don't have a business. Sales is a process that I've come to love (and you will too). I've trained and taught hundreds of professionals. It's my 'sweet spot' to making an impact in the world. But in order to master sales, your process and your approach have to be as authentic as you are.

Now I know that learning the skill of selling means freedom. Freedom to start your own business, do what you love, and determine your own income. It breaks the glass ceiling and allows you to spend time with the people you love when you want to, travel where and whenever you want, and live life on your own terms. That's why my business is structured the way it is and why I do what I do for other people.
With a background in yoga and acting, I believe in the mind, body, soul approach to selling.

With a background in yoga and acting, I believe in the mind, body, soul approach to selling.

The mind is your mental toughness. The body (the how) is the physical, logical, strategic methodology. The soul is your inner game and state of being. When all three are combined, you can truly embody your on-purpose business with total freedom...and yes, I can teach you how.

I call it "Sales Training with a Spiritual Kick."

It’s the cherry in your Dr. Pepper. It’s the essence of something you can’t quite put your finger on, but is the essential ingredient that makes all the difference.

You can do this.

I can show you how.

"High Impact and Rare"

Jessica worked brilliantly with our EDSi fellows. She covered a wide range of critical information, including: asking our entrepreneurs to consider who the customer really is (as a person), how to build trust and relationships, and how to understand the customer's needs accurately. I think Jess' work was particularly useful because, while it touched the strategy and the financial model of each business, it stayed clearly on the sales (customer acquisition) side. Her feedback and insights were rich in context and given with empathy and understanding. It is clear to me from working with her that Jess has deep knowledge underneath her comments. We drew on that knowledge in a classroom setting, and I believe her contribution would also be immensely useful in 1:1 interaction.

"We came away with a plan that truly made sense for us and gave us confidence that we could attain our goal."

Jessica recently worked with us to establish a sales plan to meet our goals. As a startup, sales is particularly challenging due to many competing priorities and lack of formal training on the part of the senior team. After working with Jess for even a short period of time, we came away with a plan that truly made sense for us and gave us confidence that we could attain our goal. Jess helped us to identify areas where we needed to make changes to our process and where we could improve our messaging. She also helped us to figure out a system for measurement, which was important. I felt that she really understood our business, even after just working together for a short time. I highly recommend JPM Partners for anyone looking to get their arms around their sales goals and strategy!
