📈 The RIGHT Way To Sell 💰

Salespeople get a bad rap.

They're pushy, overly persistent, and don't listen.

Unfortunately, I believe that it's because they've been taught wrong.

Good salespeople are good marketers.

They find customer pain points.

Then they create solutions to those pain points.

When you provide value, the selling part is easy!

Why do you post content

🧐 Why do you post content on LinkedIn (or why don't you?)

I've been thinking about this question a lot lately, and here are some of my reasons:
💬 It gives me an opportunity to share my thoughts.
📈 It helps me grow my network and meet new people.
🙌 It spreads awareness of my personal and business brands.
😳 I feel like I should (hey, I'm trying to be honest here, and it feels like everyone is saying you have to post consistently)

Why do (or don't) you post on LinkedIn? 👇🏻

Use Friction as a Tool

I've been thinking a lot about friction lately. Especially as I'm working from home and have more distractions than ever before.

Friction is simply a tool in our toolbox. Are you using it to your advantage?

⏫ We should increase friction in the things we want to stop doing. (example: move distracting apps to a distant page and folder on your phone).

⏬ We should decrease friction for the things we want to do more (example: I've started putting a book next to my bed so I read more often).

These ideas are not my own :) Thanks to Nir Eyal and his book, Indistractible, for helping me think about this.

Service

Last week, I committed to posting something faith promoting each Sunday. Today's topic is service.

In business and leadership, I believe that service is one of the most important things you can do. If a business serves their customers, clients, and employees, they'll be successful. If leader serves the people they lead, they'll be an effective leader.

In Matthew 23:11, Christ teaches: "he that is greatest among you shall be your servant." In this simple teaching, he taught the importance of humility and service. He didn't just say that though. He lived it. He, as the literal son of God, spent his entire life in the service of others.
