This easy 10-step approach gives you a natural, authentic way to sell yourself that serves everyone with whom you speak—and also gets the exact sales results you want. It transforms those icky, queasy, uneasy feelings about selling yourself into a clear, open confidence so that you handle objections with ease and aplomb, and close the sale with skill and grace.
Here is my new definition of selling yourself: “Bringing our best when we interact with people, serving them, and being a stand for our own value, for their value, and for the value of what we are offering.”
The way you sell should be as great a contribution as the service you offer. It should reflect who you truly are, and it should be fun. That can only happen when you’ve dissolved the 7 Deadly Attitudes that keep you from enjoying or succeeding at selling yourself and the service you offer. This book gives you simple techniques for releasing those attitudes, so that you can get out there and enjoy selling yourself.
We all sell ourselves, all the time, whether we are:
- Offering a service like coaching or accounting
- Offering products like cars, cosmetics or cleaning products
- Finding a job
- Working toward a promotion
- Starting a business, doing what we love
- Getting our kids to eat broccoli
- Inviting people to a dinner party
- Talking about a cause that’s important to us
- Making a new friend
There is very little we do in life that does not, in one way or another, involve selling ourselves. You have been given a gift to share with the world. It’s time to stop letting fear, embarrassment, or queasiness about selling get in the way. It’s time to give that gift, and to let your business succeed.
Sell yourself without feeling Creepy, Pushy, or Weird was written with coaches, practitioners, service-providers, and solopreneurs in mind—but it works for anyone who needs to sell themselves in order to give the world their gift, and who wants to make a living doing what they love.
