Sales is something every entrepreneur has to engage in—and often something that feels terrifying or intimidating. No one wants to come across as sleazy or pushy or overbearing, and often, that’s how people think of sales.
That is not how selling has to be.
In today’s episode, I’m sharing a recent experience I had that I think is a helpful reframe for how to approach sales. It doesn’t have to be overly complicated; it’s about engaging in authentic conversation, asking questions, and genuinely wanting to help someone.
On Today’s Show You’ll Learn:
- How sales is simply a conversation that is helping someone find a solution to their problem [01:52]
- Why sales and selling always starts with a question – so don’t be afraid to ask! [05:03]
- How engaging in authentic conversations means you’re basically always ready to sell [10:13]
