The show notes are at https://thegoodlifecoach.com/045
- How she got into sales selling high end knives when she didn’t speak English
- Why she considers Sales to be her second language instead of English
- How necessity to help her single mother gave her the courage and resilience to earn an income and master the art of sales
- The fundamental sales techniques she learned selling knives, including not to take “no” personally and why you need to sell to “qualified buyers”.
- How seeing someone else achieve success shows you what is possible for yourself.
- Julia’s definition of sales “How can I be a conduit for someone to help them elevate their life in anyway you can.”
- Selling is about helping the people who gravitates towards you and listening well to helping them along the way. It isn’t about convincing someone.
- How you need to have a serving heart and to figure out if there is the right fit.
- Your mind will give you what you want. If you want to focus on all of the negatives your mind will give you that. If you want something to work, it will come to you. Look at obstacles as way to course correct.
- Follow-up is key – 50% of the sales are done in the follow-up.
- Women don’t charge enough because of shame and guilt of asking for more money. Feeling like I’m “not enough” may prevent you to charge for your value.
