If you want to run a business, do not be afraid of the “big, bad” business words. 🐺 (Not to be confused with the big bad wolf, though some people are equally scared of both.
Seems obvious when I put it like that, doesn’t it?
But god damn if our world of “conscious entrepreneurs” who say they’re fierce about changing the world aren’t a bunch of pansies when it comes to actually getting things done. 🙄
They’re afraid to call it “sales.”
Afraid to have a call to action because they don’t want to show up “in that energy” and make their audience uncomfortable.
Afraid to even do a sales funnel, because it’ll mean they’re selling out.
Yeah, I know it might be triggering.
But I don’t care.
Do you want to make money and make the world a better place through your business? Or do you want to sit around, not confront those triggers, and stay stagnant? 🤷♀️
It’s up to you.
But here’s the truth of it: if you’re overly worried about making people feel awkward while you’re selling to them… they’re gonna feel awkward about it.
Awkward just breeds awkward, what can I say.
But if you show up knowing that selling is the *only way* you can truly help people (and the world) at a deeper level, that’s the energy you’ll show up in.
You’ll seem clearheaded, well-balanced, and confident.
🤔 And you know what a clearheaded, well-balanced, and confident sales offer breeds?
Clearheaded, well-balanced, confident PURCHASES from your target market. 🤩
And when you make those sales?
You do more good in the world. 🌏 🕊️
🗣️ So don’t be afraid to call it sales. 👏 👏
Or to call the group of people who ~might~ be ready to buy from you “leads,” and to treat them as such.
Don’t be afraid to look at the different pieces of your sales funnel and your conversion rates on each one. 📈
Doing that stuff doesn’t make you a sell out, and it doesn’t make you slimy. It makes you a smart business person who’s serious about his or her mission to change the world. 😎
And that’s who you’re here to be, isn’t it?
Look, I don’t know where this holier-than-thou high & mightiness came from in the online entrepreneur / entrepreneurs-who-actually-give-a-fuck-about-the-world came from. 🤮
But I DO know that it’s bullshit, and I’m here to call crap on it.
It’s bullshit how “mindful” people use this to guilt and shame others into staying small, and I’m absolutely sick of it.
It doesn’t fit who you are, and it doesn’t fit who you need to be.
Nor does it fit who you want to be.
So go out there and be who you’re meant to be, babe. DO your business. Don’t let other peoples’ mindless bullshit bring you down.
