I’m certainly excited to share with you Teneille’s realisations after going through a Sovereign Sales Mapping session with me.
However, what I also wanted to share about this post is how crudely it is edited together and presented.
It’s just in the spare of the moment, in between a very limited time schedule, but I managed to grab the opportunity to capture the enthusiasm and genuine appreciation.
I notice how much beautiful slick branding photos really put people on a pedestal – but people dont’ want the “perfect” version of you all the time.
Your clients want to aspire to what it is that you have achieved, and what could be possible for them. They don’t need you to turn your life into a facade that is impossible to maintain.
So here’s my advice.
1. Get out of your comfort zone and just show up
Turn the camera on, grab a quick sound byte and be okay with taking imperfect action. I’ve seen people build 7 figure businesses with just shaky iphone videos, on the beach rambling on about whatever was in their head – because they were real and authentically themselves. If that means no make up, in a car park, and just genuinely sharing the love and excitement you have to work with your clients – so be it! Press Record!
2. It’s time to get visible, it’s time to back yourself and the value that you offer for the world.
Let people know what you stand for, what you stand against, and why working with you will change their lives for the better. Be clear and specific about the tangible benefits that your service can create for them – and how the benefits will cascade in all areas of their lives.
3. Make it easy for people to buy from you!
Like I said in the video, Teneille was allowing the pain of past events, cloud her judgement in the present – and she was hiding away from the judgement she thought she might receive if she were to truly “be seen”.
As a result, her skills and talents were a total best kept secret. And it was so hard to buy from her – as if you were shouting from a football field away.
After suffering a fairly serious breakdown I was unable to cope with life in general. My body felt broke, old and frail – I didn’t just feel middle aged, I felt half dead. I hadn’t realised that my body was self destructing and I was doing it to myself, working long hours, too much alcohol, lots of bad food and absolutely no exercise.
After six months of working with Bianca, I no longer need my blood pressure medication, anti depressants and my cholesterol is in a safe zone. I have lost 2 dress sizes and more than 26 kilos. I now have a life outside of our business and can see a happy, healthy future for our family. I hope the person I became never comes back as I like this girl so much better.
I had heard of Bianca through some magazines – it was an investment but I had tried and failed so many times but in six short months, 20 kilos melted off me and it had a massive and unexpected effect on our styling business. While working with Bianca we secured a national gig, increased our prices to a level we previously thought no one would pay, AND we were booked out weeks in advance.
The majority of this 20 kilo weight loss has only been 5% diet and exercise, the rest has been an emotional journey. Bianca confronted me and called me on my BS and challenged some of my most deeply help beliefs about who I am. And the results are undeniable. I haven’t completely quit drinking, I still get to eat chocolate, I’ve had the best year in my business EVER – and perhaps the most important thing is how differently I react to things emotionally.
Who knew that taking it slowly and being kind to yourself could get you the results that yelling at yourself couldn’t.
Before working with Bianca I was super stressed and I thought it was too hard and I didn’t have the time to be slim AND successful. But I was surprised at how easy it was to implement Bianca’s system – I haven’t counted calories and I still pig out on foods I love. It’s been no coincidence to me that as a result of the new clarity of mind I’ve actually doubled my business at the same time I’ve made these changes to my body.
