Today, she is here to empower us on The Sales Evangelist Podcast. Here are some of the major takeaways from our discussion.
What does empowerment mean to you?
It means you are not waiting for an affirmation to come in, you make things happen!
Why is the empowerment mindset so important to an entrepreneur and sales professional?
Eveline shared that people will buy from you because of your confidence. When you are confident your ability to portray values increases drastically and clients will see that. When you are confident, you are able to express yourself more effectively and buyers can see and feel your conviction.
One simple way sellers can gain more confidence.
Record yourself doing your sales pitch several times. Just simply doing it without stopping and keep on going. When you are done, send it to a friend who does not know your business/industry very well. Take their feedback and refine your presentation.
Other takeaways from Eveline:
- Change your mind frame and you will see tremendous success. Don’t fog your mind with failure, focus on the positive or the abundance mindset.
- Go to networking events with the idea of being a “GIVER” as oppose to being a beggar.
- Don’t be afraid of sharing your top clients or contacts, great things will replicate back to you.
- Maintain your imagine online, offline or where you may be. Be true to yourself in everything you do.
- Never give up on your dreams no matter what you are going through!
