Learn Speak Teach Episode #91 with Michael Oliver.

If you’re a salesperson, you may have seen similarities between the popular sales method by Jeremy Miner,, NEPQ (Neuro-Emotional Persuasion Questions), and the “How to Sell Network Marketing” book by Michael Oliver. In fact, NEPQ is actually a reworded version of Michael’s “Natural Selling” methodology, of which he’s been teaching for decades.

Michael Oliver is an internationally renowned sales trainer, coach, and best-selling author with over 40 years of experience in the sales industry. Michael is also the founder of Natural Selling Sales Training, which helps salespeople learn how to sell the way people buy.

Through his course “Natural Selling: The Art & Science Of Selling With Integrity,” Michael offers a step-by-step blueprint to double sales without rejection or objections.

Michael’s approach to sales — the Natural Selling Conversational Dialogue — emphasizes

genuine rapport and self-persuasion. Michael seamlessly blends ancient communication philosophies with modern strategies, championing authenticity in every transaction.

In this episode, Michael talks about the origin of Natural Selling, its development, principles, and how it became a thing.

Michael also touches upon how Jeremy Miner’s NEPQ framework is a carbon copy of the Natural Selling principles and questioning techniques that Michael developed. Michael taught Jeremy around 17 years ago, and Jeremy even left him a testimonial on his website, Natural Selling.
