If the cup isn’t empty – you simply can’t get anything in

I was in a BIG and very important (to our company) meeting today.

About 20 minutes into the meeting, the woman I was talking to checked her phone, rolled her eyes, sighed in disgust and said – “My neighbor!”

I was in the middle of setting up the conversation we were about to have about how to work together.

I stopped.

I asked her what was happening. She started the story. She has been battling her neighbor for years – is even considering moving to a new home to be away from this person.

I kept asking friendly questions until it was all out……all that SHE wanted to say. Then, she was calm and re-focused.

If I’d let that moment go – she would have only had her attention 20% with me.

As it was, we’re moving forward!!!!!

Be alert! What do THEY have their focus on? Unlikely it’s you for very long at any given time. I’m just sayin’

If they’ve got something on their mind – your message won’t get through!

Love ’em up!

When my ceiling became my floor….

I just realized the other day that I have been RELIABLE for making the same EXACT amount of money for 10 years straight!

It’s a good amount.

And then I got an opportunity to double it.

Immediately, my ceiling became my floor.

New opportunities opened up! Lucrative opportunities all over the place.

I want to help YOU get to the income you want. For REALS. I have been making a GOOD living for years now. I have been working for years to distill what got me to that level.

I’m not making any offers right today, but I am building WILDLY sparkly ways for you to learn what I know. I will always offer my blog for free and I want you to continue to love them. I will build even more free things that will add real value to your life. My promise.

But, I want you to start looking….if you could have a six figure income every year – reliably (I realize that many of you are above this) and you could do it with the dignity, fun, and passion that you get every time you come to The Irreverent Sales Girl – I am going to invite you to deepen our relationship – so that I can be the cartoon character who actually stands for YOU personally. And you won’t pay for ANYTHING unless you get the result you wanted.

I’m reliable. You will be, too!

Coming soon to a theater near you!

I can’t wait to know you better and love you up!

If you want to double your income…..

….focus on helping twice as many people. Be a resource to double or triple the number of people you’re talking to right now………focus on the difference you make, and the rest will fall into place.

Are you big enough to handle all of the new business? Are you ready to build systems that will help you accomplish this?

Love ’em up!

Bonus Weekend Post – not for the easily offended!

The story of a young guy from Missouri

A young guy from Missouri moves to Florida and goes to a big “everything under the roof department store” looking for a job.

The manager says ” Do you have any sales experience?”

The kid says ” Yeah, I was a salesman back home in Missouri.”

Well, the boss liked the kid so he gave him the job. “You start tomorrow, Il come down after we close and see how you did.”

His first day on the job was rough but he got through it. After the store was locked up, the boss came down, “How many sales did you make today?”

The kid says “one.”

The boss says, “just one?!! Our sales people average 20 to 30 sales a day! How much was the sale for?”

The kid says ” $101,237.64″

The boss says, “$101,23764? WHAT THE HELL DID YOU SELL?”

Kid says, ” First I sold him a small fish hook, then I sold him a medium fish hook, then I sold him a larger fish hook, then I sold him a new fishing rod, then I asked him where he was going fishing and he said down at the coast, so I told him he was gonna need a boat, so we went down to the boat department and I sold him that twin engine Chris Craft. Then he said he didn’t think his Honda Civic would pull it, so I took him down to the automotive department and sold him that 4×4 Expedition.”

The boss said, ” A guy came in here to buy a fish hook and you sold him a BOAT AND A TRUCK??”

The kid says, ” No, he came in here to buy a box of tampons for his wife and I said, “Well, your weekend’s shot, you might as well go fishing..”

Even better than Location Location Location

Focus Focus Focus

I met an extraordinary man. His name is Jonny Imerman. He founded Imerman Angels – his organization connects a cancer survivor with a cancer patient who is the same age, gender, and has the same cancer that the other survived.

www.imermanangels.org

That’s all his organization does. If a person has cancer, they can go to Imerman Angels and be connected with someone who is their own age, their same gender, and has survived the exact same cancer that they have now.

It is an UNBELIEVABLY powerful program! Can you imagine having a buddy who has gone through the EXACT same stuff that you are now dealing with and can talk you through all of it – especially when you are scared out of your wits? If you’re a guy in your 20’s, you’re talking to a guy in HIS 20’s who survived your diagnosis. If you’re an older woman, you’re connected with an older woman. BRILLIANT!!!

He has a network of thousands of survivors across the world. He is completely sponsor supported and has never asked for money or a grant. He has a small staff and, from what I can tell, they are sustainable.

Know why?

Because he ONLY does ONE thing. He partners with American Cancer, Livestrong, and the others – so he can connect people to organizations that provide other services to cancer patients.

But, Imerman Angels ONLY DOES ONE THING! Connect cancer patients with cancer survivors and caregivers.  And he does it well.

Did you notice how I could tell the whole story in a very short period of time – and you can fully get it?

Do you have this kind of focus? Are you laser clear with what you provide and what you offer? If you are, then location location location becomes obvious and falls right into place.

If not, I dare you to narrow your focus. You can never go wrong if it’s aligned with who you REALLY are. So, who are you REALLY? Now, challenge yourself to FOCUS!!!

Most never do.

Love your purpose up!

What went wrong?

Here’s what I’ve noticed……

People LOVE buying stuff from people they like!

So, what went wrong? Why is “sales” so villified? Hmmmmmm………

If you are in sales, point your index finger at something in front of you. NOW, slowly turn your hand to point to your own chest.

PROBLEM SOLVED??????

Are you ready to bring a DASH OF DIGNITY to your art of selling?

Love ’em up!

If you want to learn something new…..

Learn like a kid does!

Adults mostly have to un-learn things ‘cuz they learned things when they were young. That’s why it is so easy to learn things when you’re a kid, because you’re being a kid about it.

If you want to learn something new now — find a way to jump around and play and squirm and shout at the top of your lungs while learning it.

Find a way to sing your new information.

Find a way to practice without worry about getting it right the first time (how was your first step, after all? Did you get it right the first time?)

Kids believe they CAN and then they bring play.

If you want to learn something new, leave your EGO at the door and play like a goofy kid!
