My Story: From over 600 Million in Corporate Sales to a 6-Figure Business

12/22/2023
I wanted to share more about my story and how I want to be able to help serve you as you’re going to come along with me on this journey for the content that I have planned and the incredible guests who I am able to bring on this show for you as well. I never intended to have a career in sales. In fact, I always ran away from sales jobs for as long as I can possibly remember. I'm not a stranger to sales. I'm not a stranger to business and I'm not a stranger to entrepreneurship. In fact, my parents have been entrepreneurs ever since I was, I think ever since I was born. I don't remember anything else other than kind of growing up beside them as they ran their brick and mortar store. However, I found myself going from over 600 million in corporate sales to a 6-figure business.

Why You Can Sell Really Well As An Introvert

12/22/2023
Introverts can sell just as well, if not better than extroverts. After having worked with hundreds if not thousands and thousands of sales professionals back in corporate, what I know to be true is that regardless of your background, experience, age, ethnicity, gender, it really doesn't matter. Introverts have just as much capacity to be able to sell extremely well as extroverts do, if not better. Too often what we think of is that extroverts, the ones who have the big personality, who just seem to have that charismatic nature that draws people to them. Introverts can do extremely well in a sales career, in selling in their business and making those sales, especially premium programs or services, is because of their ability to be able to connect in a very unique way.

My Key Takeaways On Selling With Ease

12/22/2023
After helping other sales professionals sell over 600 million through my sales career, I’ve learnt that it's very different selling products and services for somebody else on behalf of another person or another company, another brand versus having to sell yourself. If you are somebody who is struggling to sell in your business, perhaps it’s because you're serving, serving, serving and you don't know how to transition that into selling. Serving is selling. On this episode, I’ll teach you how to articulate and understand when to shift that dynamic from giving something for free into giving your audience an opportunity to work with you and, most importantly, pay you.

Why Buyers Say No & How To Hear A Yes!

Have you ever had a sales conversation and you're wondering why the heck aren’t they actually just going ahead and saying yes when you know that you can in fact help them.

Consultative vs. Transactional Selling

12/22/2023
How do you actually sell higher priced programs and offers and services? In this episode, we discuss about the different ways that you can sell between transactional selling versus consultative selling and why the consultative selling approach is the best and easiest way to sell. Too often, what I see is that most people use transactional selling. Transactional selling is essentially where there's not a lot of advice or information that is provided to your customer or buyer. They're simply coming in, paying for the service or the product. And that's it. There's not a lot of differentiation between what it is that you offer versus your competitors or alternatives If you are a service provider, you’d want to sell more in a consultative selling process. This means that you take the role of a trusted advisor and you’re the expert in the transaction. You're acting in an expert capacity to help your customers understand exactly how they can get the solution that they're seeking because you under, you've taken the time to really understand the problem, which ultimately gets you the sale.
