Jennie Solo: Sales is Not a 4-Letter Word

In this episode, Jennie discusses:

  • Your thoughts, feelings, and beliefs around sales are shaped by all the sales experiences you’ve ever had
  • Our brain has evolved to protect us from bad things, including bad sales experiences
  • Negative experiences negative words, negative situations have four times more impact on your brain than a positive one
  • It’s not about you. If you focus on you, you’ll lose the sale

 

Key Takeaways:

  • Reframe how you think about sales as a transfer of a solution to a problem
  • Don’t focus on your product/service, figure out how you can solve your customer’s problem…Hopefully with your product or service
  • Respect your customers’ boundaries. If they don’t see the value of your solution at the time, be respectful of that decision.

 

“So the first thing is, have the goal of getting to know this other human. What do they want? What are their needs? What problems are they concerned with solving right now? Secondly, go into each of those conversations with the other person’s best interests at heart and respect their boundaries.” —  Jennie Bellinger

With 30+ years of experience, she’s worked with hundreds of kids and their moms, dads, and grandparents. Deborah discovered playful connection makes the biggest positive impact on a child’s life.

  • How letting your child find their own solutions to challenges empowers them and allows you to step back and enjoy the process.
  • Supporting your child in play by allowing them to lead and noticing what they’re doing in a way that doesn’t interfere with their process.
  • The power of one-on-one time with a parent, even just once a week for 30 minutes

Key Takeaways:

  • Each child is the expert on what they need to express in play.
  • Play therapy is much more powerful when done at home with parents who have been trained in play.
  • Children who are allowed to make kid-size decisions and enabled to learn on their own terms are more likely to become self-sufficient, confident, empathetic adults.
  • It’s not just the children getting the benefits, the parents are also learning skills that help them to relax.

Jackie Ulmer: The Secrets Of Social Selling

About Jackie Ulmer: Jackie Ulmer is an award winning speaker, coach and entrepreneur, focused on helping women develop the business skills, confidence and social media strategies needed to attract their ideal clients using online and offline methods. As a 25+ year entrepreneur, she’s sold products, services and built teams in over 40 countries in Direct Sales and Coaching. We don’t get our goals; we get our habits! Jackie is going to coach you on how to develop the habits you need to rock your business.

In this episode, Jennie and Jackie discuss:

  • Overcoming the obstacle of who to talk to outside your “warm market.”
  • How the internet changed the way we do business, and the ways the landscape is changing again due to COVID-19.
  • Using social media as a networking platform rather than an advertising platform to build relationships first, then appropriate sales.
  • Finding and fine-tuning your marketing to your ideal client.

Key Takeaways:

  • Building a successful business requires breaking out of your circle of friends and family to find new clients.
  • Using the internet to build your business brings the leads to you, rather than you having to hunt them down.
  • Market yourself, share what you do, share who you’re looking to serve, share in what ways you’re going to serve them. 
  • Hone in on your ideal client and build a marketing strategy around that ideal client, online and offline.

“My secret to success are my three C’s, and that is clarity, commitment and consistency. Everything that we do in this business is a learned skill set, we have a tendency to want to think that somebody else has some secret sauce that we don’t have. But it really is just a learned set of business skills. And when you have clarity around your why, and your who, and your what, and your how, it leads you to the commitment, and part of the commitment is finding and committing to that process of developing that skill set. And then it’s consistency. Success is sexy, the road to get there, not always so much.” —  Jackie Ulmer
