Love your business, hate selling? (the secret)

You love your business.

But you kind of hate selling???

Here’s the problem: without selling, you don’t have a business.

When you learn how to sell well, you serve more people AND you increase your own earning potential. I know because I did this!

Last year, I tripled my income results and passed into a 7-figure mark in my business. I also served way more people because I learned how to help THEM get what they need and wanted.

That’s really what “selling” is all about – being in service in a bigger way!

That’s why I want you to learn a way of selling that feels great – for you AND for your customer.

What if you could sell with your heart and soul – instead of feeling inauthentic and pushy?

What if you could reach more people with your products and services – WHILE creating the freedom and income you’re longing for?

What if you could not only develop and deepen your sales skills – but also come to LOVE selling?

That’s exactly what you’ll learn in the free virtual event I’m part of, The Art of Selling to a Woman: How to Connect, Engage and Sell to the Female Consumer

Fellow entrepreneur Tanya Pluckrose has brought together 21 sales experts (including me!) to teach you a way of selling that’s natural, authentic, and connected. It starts on May 20, but you should reserve your spot now!

I actually talk about what female sexuality and selling have in common!

During this free, virtual event you’ll learn how to:

  • Approach selling in a unique and refreshing way (sales isn’t what you think!)
  • Forget the sale and create value (because value trumps price every time)

  • Leverage the #1 decision-making factor (it isn’t logic)

  • Create better sales results and win more business no matter your industry (get ready to skyrocket)

If you’re ready to love all parts of your business, including sales…

If you’re ready to connect with and sell to your ideal client, ditching awkward, uncomfortable pitches…

If you’re ready to learn how to sell with integrity…

This show is for you. Get access here: https://www.tanyapluckrose.com/a/14718/QfRyouzn 

This show is free to you – but don't discount its value because it's free! There's a veritable gold mine of information here. The speaker list includes multiple bestselling authors, world-renowned sales leaders, and changemakers and visionaries in the game of selling.

Your Well-Meaning Spouse {is NOT Your Mentor}

In nearly two-two-decades of working in the world of personal development and entrepreneurship I cannot tell you how many well-meaning husbands who genuinely love their spouses and want the best for them, have advised:

“You’re smart, you don’t need a coach. You can figure this stuff out on your own…

“You are perfect. You don’t need to do that program/training/development!..

Or my personal fav:

“I know a bit about business/have a tourism degree/lead teams, so just learn from me.”

Never ever do I recommend your spouse replace a mentor.

First, they are just too close to you, and have their “stuff” going on and in many ways want you to stay the same because it works for them. (With love, but this is TRUE).

Secondly, when we allow our spouse to make decisions for us we are COMPLETELY CUT OFF from our internal knowing and power!

Even if you’ve never heard something like this from your spouse who wants to keep you safe and “save you money,” maybe you’ve told it to yourself…

…That’s how dominated we are by “martyr” thinking, that we think our value is based on how much we can do alone!

What few people understand is that a great mentor will short cut time, struggle and actually help you MAKE money in the long run.

For the woman who wants to THRIVE, succeed faster, and make more money sooner (don’t pretend you don’t!) without blowing out your adrenals or your marriage, the SMARTEST THING you can do is allow yourself mentorship, community and support as you fulfill your purpose.

Will 2019 be your year???

It is a perfect time to take action to get the support and mentoring…and it is definitely NOT your spouse!

I mentor success focused, service-driven women who are solo-preneurs, transformational teachers, coaches, artists and heroines who wish to create more impact and income without sacrificing themselves!

How to Stop Second Guessing Yourself {My Formula to Make Great Decisions}

“I have to sit with this.

“I have to think about it.

“I have to ask the Universe.

“I am scared so that must mean it’s not right.”

These are all responses I have heard myself and others say when faced with a decision.

And it’s all bullshit.

The thing is we are all born with an innate knowing.

We are born clear. We come forth with no shame or guilt about what we want or taking the next step to get it.

Think about it – when toddlers are learning to walk they don’t “have to sit with it” or “feel it in their body.” 

They go for it, bruised noses and all.  They have a relentless desire for more.

We all have a relentless Desire for more but we start to question it.

Later in life we start second guess everything. We take on the fears of our family, our culture, our friends and even our lovers.

We fear being judged, getting it wrong, making a mistake, ending up more broke/alone/wrong, so we “sit with it”.

Mistakes feel super painful so we avoid making one and thus decisions.

But you know what’s even more painful – REGRET!!

What if you had never taken the risk to learn to walk

Would you regret that?

YES! It sounds so ludicrous to even ask.

Nothing will change until we take the next step, and we can’t take a step by “sitting with it”.

We can take a step even with the fear.

Yes, we need to be discerning but most of us do KNOW what we want and even what the next step is for us, but we talk ourselves out of it.

One of the best things I taught myself was HOW TO MAKE A DECISION, QUICKLY.

Here’s My Formula for Making a Decision:

1.Be Clear On What You Want – So simple…but lots of people are afraid to claim what they want. So this is your permission to get clear and declare to yourself what you want!!!!!

For me, I got clear that in 2019 I wanted to be on more stages and on more media outlets so I could make a bigger impact.  Simply, my goal in 2019 is to be on 20 great stages and media platforms. It WILL happen. I’ve made the decision.

What do you want?  Define it clearly.

 

2.Pay Attention + Trust Universal Laws – One of the best things I ever did was study Universal Laws. I understand the Law of Vibration (aka Law of Attraction) – that what IS showing up in my experience – whether it is a coaching program, training, speaking gig or travel opportunity – is coming my way because of my Desire.  I am literally in harmony with it. I can feel confident because if it was NOT meant for me it would NOT be in my experience.

If I use the same example as above, I had an opportunity to study with a world re-known speaking coach and I was an immediate YES.

I knew this man was showing up in my life at the perfect time because it was what I wanted. I made the decision and investment with ease because I KNOW he is here to help me in my vision. I literally manifested him so I was COMPELLED to trust that and take the next step.

What is showing up in your experience that could help you BE, DO OR HAVE what you really want?  

3.NEVER Make Decisions Based on MoneyI used to order the cheapest thing on the menu even if I didn’t want it. ACK. Now I order what I WANT.

I have learned to NEVER make decisions based on money or price point. In fact now if something is “too cheap” I don’t buy it because I’m pretty sure it won’t help me get the results I want (and I want to work with people who value what they do). A $99 program means $99 results.   Do you want a Dollar Store kind of life? NOT ME!

Also, I hold myself accountable to create the money. So, I make a decision, Trust the Universal Laws and TAKE ACTION.  This is also known as The Law of Cause + Effect. I don’t wait for the fairies of the Universe to rain down pennies from the sky. I CREATE them!!

What are you talking yourself out of because of the money?  Ready to stop that?????

 What resource / action / opportunity for money is already here?

As we approach 2019, it is a perfect time to notice the voices of fear, to make a decision about what you REALLY want, and then to take action to get the support to create it, now.

That’s the thing about support – a great mentor can help you literally collapse time.

You can’t do it alone or you would have already!

And you CAN do it even with the fear.

Shasta

How Your Past May Be Affecting Your Results + You Don’t Even Know It

I use to think I just needed to leave the past behind me.

I spent over 24 years creating my life in spite of my own past.

I was a “Survivor” of an abusive childhood with no money, little love and lots of fear. 

“The Survivor” is applauded in our culture. We love them and for good reason. There is power in “the Underdog”, the David and Goliath symbol and the Phoenix.

It is inspiring to see people triumph despite the circumstances in their life. It shows us the power of the human spirit and will, and it reminds us not dwell in the hurt, betrayal and victimization…that we have all experienced in our journey.

But perhaps there is a deeper aspect to this.

Look to Your Past to Create Your Future – Not In The Way You Think 

I created “success’ in my life in spite of my family, my childhood, my sad story…but…

It’s not that I had a chip on my shoulder more like I felt like I was fighting against everything to PROVE that I was not like my family.

This created a lot of resistance and sets up a “me versus them” energy which means wholeness can’t happen. It's defiance.

Anything that we have a defiance against means that it has power over us.

It also means that there is a level of hurt that is casting a shadow in our life even if we can’t see it.

For me that shadow would arise in my reactions to others who in my opinion were not trying to “create more”.

I would feel triggered by “victims”. I always felt confused that people would choose to stay in circumstances, as my mother did, that were not loving or powerful.

I didn’t see that I was in a huge state of judgment.

Then I decided that maybe, just maybe I was so clear and “successful” in my life BECAUSE of my past and not in spite of it.

It’s a small shift in perspective – going from “in spite of” to “because of”.

“Because of” means that we integrate what has happened. We see all the pain, abuse, sadness as a way for us to actually become MORE.

For example, in my journey I grew up with a mentally and physically abusive stepfather and a mother who in my perspective did nothing to protect my sister and I.

I decided at a young age that no one would ever treat me that way again – especially men.

I was going to “break” the family pattern and create a loving and successful marriage DESPITE my mother, my abusive stepfather and my family heritage…but perhaps I created a loving marriage BECAUSE of my experiences.

“Because of” meaning those experiences helped me have a strong awareness of what I did want in my life and what I would not tolerate. 

That is a major gift! My parents gave me the gift of knowing what I do not want in a strong way.

Because of those experiences I have a level of clarity that is unshakeable, and I also have a confidence in myself to create them.

Because I did not have the parents who could guide me on my journey into powerful creation I had to learn to create that myself. 

It is small but significant shift in our mind – to consider what we are creating BECAUSE of our past rather than IN SPITE of it.

It takes us out of reaction mode, out of victim mode and allows us to see the past as a means of revelation instead of pain.

I am not saying that our experiences are not painful or that we should deny the sadness, anger or mourning that come with them. It is important to feel those emotions as part of the healing, but it is also important to welcome that as an awareness of what you do want.

Perhaps it is not so much leaving the past behind you but actually having an appreciation for it…and seeing how it all lead you from “low rent” duplexes to 5-star hotel rooms!

Much love,

Shasta
