How to avoid feeling sleazy or pushy in your biz
I hear worries like this from my clients all the time:
- “I’ve put so much work into my website but I’m scared to press ‘publish’ because everyone will see it. What if they don’t like it? I’ll feel like I’ve totally failed.”
- “I’ve created a new 4-week program but I am not sure if I am giving enough value. I’m scared to make it expensive because then no one will buy it, so I’ve added 5 extra bonuses. Do you think $197 is too much to charge?”
- “I’m just starting out and I have my first discovery call with a potential client, but don’t I need to register my business to make it official first? I’m worried I’ll get in trouble with the government or the IRS will come after me.”
Sound familiar? Insecurity shows up all over the place.
Let me reassure you: It’s totally expected and natural to feel that way, especially when you’re just starting out or stretching in a new direction.
Becoming an entrepreneur and leaving the safety and security of a steady paycheck that comes with a 9-5 day job is one of the scariest things to do. Hands down.
It’s a huge stretch to leave your day job, secure income, and everything you’ve ever known in the work world to create something on your own at your kitchen table, spare bedroom, or in a coffeehouse while drinking lattes.
I know it was for me.
Building a business from the ground up using a laptop, an iPhone and a prayer is one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. Which says a lot considering I have done other things most people would consider “hard” like:
- Pass the bar exam to become a lawyer
- Travel to Europe by myself
- Run three marathons (including one in 25º weather – NOT fun!)
- Get a job in the White House (that I turned down to go to law school!)
- Dress up for a fancy dinner at Le Cirque in Las Vegas and order a table for one. (Yep! I actually did that. On purpose. To challenge myself. It was hard.)
Building a business requires you to draw on your inner CONFIDENCE, POWER and STRENGTH to help you move forward, one day at a time to build the business of your dreams.
One of the best things you can do to find your confidence is to call on an expert.
That’s why I’m so excited to interview Kendrick Shope, Creator of Authentic Selling®, to talk about how to “Find Confidence” so you can sell anything that you want.
Join us TOMORROW at at 8am PT/11am ET for the webinar. Register HERE.
During the webinar, Kendrick will give you clear action steps to sell with grace so you can stop being scared of promoting your services or raising your rates.
