I sell things…. There, I said it.
We’ve made sales out to be such a dirty industry. But I read an incredible sentence…..
“Selling is simply listening.”
When i read that from a friend, it all clicked in my head.
Selling is simply listening.
It’s listening to what someone needs.
Listening to their dreams.
Listening to what they want.
And then asking myself if that’s a need I can meet with the resources I have.
I listen to stories every single day. I get texts and messages from countless people who share their stories with me…..
•The story of a mom who feels like she lost herself in pregnancy and just wants to feel like herself in her skin again.
•The story of a college student who wants to graduate debt free because she’s seen her parents struggle and she wants more for her future.
•The story of someone who is struggling to feel better after a cancer battle. A fertility battle. An emotional battle. A weight battle… the list goes on.
•The story of a wife who has a crazy dream to retire her hardworking husband and I know that I can help her bring him home.
I’m a professional listener.
Many times, I am able to join and even change (for the better!) the story of the person I’m listening to. Sometimes I can’t.
But most of the time, I listen, I share, we lock arms—and lives get changed.
You earn the right to hear someone’s story every time you make the choice to tell yours!
So next time you write someone off because “they sell something” maybe just try telling them your story. See what pieces you can fit together.
Because absolutely everyone deserves to be heard.
And who knows—maybe, they just might be able to change your life. 🙌🏼 #ChooseJoy
