Sales and Imposter Syndrome: Power-selling Without Selling Out

Have you ever felt awkward, guilty, selfish, or greedy on a sales call? Do you find yourself talking in a nervous ramble, worry you’re bragging, find yourself stuttering, or get freeze up when it’s time to talk about price?

Despite being really good at a long list of really hard things, many women find sales the bane of their existence. And it’s because women are taught that our value comes from giving — not from asking for more.

Women are praised for being selfless, charitable, kind, devoted, big-hearted, loving, and generous. It’s what makes us “good.”

The bad news is that selling doesn’t work when we’re focused on our negative associations around money. The great news is that when we focus our on giving (something we already know we’re good at!) instead of taking, we can flip the script and learn to love the art of the sale.

Ash Ambirge, the author of The Middle Finger Project, is joining us for our September Power Boost to teach us her 3X Method of Selling.

In this 45-minute Power Boost, Ash will walk you through specific examples and even help you with some copy/paste scripts that you can use to convert more clients and sell more services at higher price points.

Author

Power Boost Leader

Ash Ambirge is the author of The Middle Finger Project (Penguin Random House 2020) and the CEO of the irreverent female-focused sales training co. by the same name that helps women “make their own damn money”—[wide grin!]—through a variety of signature programs, workshops, courses, talks and books. Her work has been praised by authors such as Seth Godin and Sarah Knight (author of “The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck”), and was recently selected to be featured on The Today Show, The Jenny McCarthy Show, CBS Radio and more. She has also appeared on hundreds of podcasts, such as “Afford Anything” with Paula Pant and “Do It Scared” with Ruth Soukup.

She’s been writing publicly for eleven years at The Middle Finger Project website and made her first million dollars “from the back seat of her car,” as she kiddingly jokes.

Ash splits her time between her historic apartment in Old City, Philly and her little cottage in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica with her darling partner, C, whom she drags to Europe every summer to more closely investigate the matter of whiskey, wine, and people with Scottish accents. Her feet are definitely bigger than yours, and she hates fish.
