Get Over Your Fear of Selling Yourself With This Trick for Showing Up With Confidence, Energy and Ease

In: How to Sell Yourself

You know, we just got over an awesome launch of the world’s most useful legal kit on earth for online business (thank you to all of you who bought already!) and the entire time you know what I kept thinking?

Selling your stuff requires you to insist on your own brilliance.

And that’s a difficult thing to do, sometimes, when you’ve been raised in a culture where you're taught to be humble, act modest, and not be all show-boatey. (Or, you know, just when YOU DON’T WANT TO FEEL LIKE A TOOL.)

And yet, in order to do a great job marketing, selling, launching, promoting, you have to put yourself on display; tell the world how great you are; brag about this thing you’ve made; be willing to make a promise that, yes, this is worth it.

This is exceedingly more difficult when you aren’t sure you even believe in the value you offer, and that’s precisely why my #1 tip for selling yourself has nothing to do with the way you sell, and everything to do with WHAT you sell.

You must first fall in love with your own product, before you can ever hope to make other people.

Because only when you believe it’s brilliant, can you sell it as such.

Anything less would be fraud, and that's exactly why, I suspect, so many people feel like one.

Are You Selling The Wrong Thing?

Raise your hand if you’ve ever been guilty of making a list of “what’s included” that looks like this: Modules! PDFs! Videos! Audios of the Videos! Transcripts of the Audios of the Videos! Commentary on the transcripts of the Audios of the Videos! A revolutionary new—drum roll— Facebook Group! AND THERE’S MORE! Buy now and […]

Should You Offer a Payment Plan?

Yes—but only as a last resort. Put yourself in the buyer’s shoes: that $2,000 course you’re thinking about taking is COSTS APPROXIMATELY THE SAME AS A SMALL HORSE, however—that’s not to say you wouldn’t purchase a small horse (neiiiighhh!) if you could, say, put $97 a month toward the beast in all its glory. Which […]

Running a Holiday Sale? Memorize This by Heart.

So the other day I’m Christmas shopping here in Costa Rica, which is automatically hilarious because, first of all, because they spell “Ho Ho Ho!” like “Jo Jo Jo!” which never gets less funny, and second, because Santa was dressed in a royal blue suit. (I still haven’t decided if this is posh or ridiculous, […]

Lots of Inquiries But No Sales? Help Is Here.

I get two questions all of the time: 1. How do I convert more email inquiries into actual customers & clients? (Who ideally have zero credit card limit and maybe even a mullet because wouldn’t that be fun?) 2. How do you manage to stay looking so young? Obviously no one really ever asks me […]

This Bastard Was Getting Paid $10,000 a Month.

This bastard was getting paid $10,000 dollars a month. He was on contract with my company at the time, brought on as a consultant to work directly with a young (and far less wrinkley-lipped) yours truly. This was some ten plus years ago, mind you, at a time when things like blogs were for morons who liked […]
