How to Get More Comfortable (and Effective) at Selling

Selling is a skill, not an innate talent. But that doesn’t mean it’s always comfortable to learn.

Too many content creators have amazing audiences and a wonderful product or service — but they fall apart at the “last mile” of selling to their customers or clients.

In this 19-minute episode, I talk about:

  • Why starting with a product idea first can be an expensive mistake
  • Why people don’t buy, even if they love you
  • Why nothing “sells itself”
  • How to find out what’s keeping people from moving forward with a sale
  • Why you don’t need to be an “amazing” salesperson to do this
