Oh, SALES. The bane of everyone’s existence. The arch-enemy of women worldwide! The one thing we are not very good at, despite being good at really hard things.
That’s because as women we are taught that our value comes from giving. Giving is the keyword: GIVING is what makes us “good.” If you consider the narrative of the way we praise women, it’s all about how selfless, charitable, kind, devoted, big-hearted, loving and generous a woman is.
Which is why when it’s time for you to take someone’s money. it doesn’t just feel awkward: it feels downright wrong.
The narrative now is that we’re greedy. Selfish. Cut-throat. Grabby.
And we don’t want to be those things. So when we finally get a client on the phone? Everything we’re saying just kinda goes…limp. You talk in a nervous ramble. You worry you sound like you’re bragging. You freeze up when it’s time to talk about price. You stutter and get mad at yourself while you’re stuttering because you know you can do better than this, but selling just always feels so downright sleazy.
So you don’t do it well.
And the client says they’ll think about it—and then disappears.
And so you follow up, feeling like a pathetic, desperate slug of a beggar.
And then the next time it’s time to get on the phone with a client, you freak out even more.
You’re bad at this, you say. You just wish people would see your value and hire you, without putting you through the torture chamber.
Alas, the bad news is: that’s not how selling works. But the good news?
