    36. Leaving the 9-5

    36. Leaving the 9-5

    When you started your social selling business, you likely had a dream of leaving your “day job.” You probably dreamed about it so much that you ended up romanticising what your life would look like without your 9 to 5.
     
    You may think this dream/goal is motivating you into growing a successful network marketing business, but today’s episode will challenge you on this idea.
     
    Shifting from bitterness and resentment to gratitude and joy for your current work situation will change everything about how you’re showing up in your social selling business. And it will actually make your plan B, your reality sooner rather than later.
     
    Don’t miss these highlights:
     
    Why you don’t have ‘more time’ when you quit your 9 to 5 and how you’re more efficient when you’re doing both jobs The intentional thoughts you need to think in order to find joy in your current job How much money you actually need to be making before you quit your 9 to 5 Why setting a deadline to leave your 9 to 5 has a negative impact on your social selling business How to stop the feelings of bitterness and resentment from creeping into your 9 to 5 The multiple phases of a social selling business and how that informs when you should leave your 9 to 5 The key things that will ruin your experience while you stay with your 9 to 5 and work on building your ‘side hustle’
    Having the ultimate goal of working for yourself by building your social selling business is great! But treating that goal as an escape hatch out of misery will have a negative impact on your new business.

    35. Building Self Trust

    35. Building Self Trust

    As an online entrepreneur, you’re starting from the ground up to build your business. For those of you coming from other career backgrounds, it can be a challenge to realize that there’s no handbook to tell you how to operate. Not knowing whether your decisions are right or wrong can leave you feeling overwhelmed, confused, and stuck.
     
    That’s where building self trust comes in.
     
    Here’s what Kristen wants you to understand about trusting yourself to make important decisions in your social selling business:
     
    What it really means to trust yourself The problem with labeling your decisions as right or wrong Why it’s okay to experience negative emotion The reason why your brain actually PREFERS indecision The secret to making committed decisions How self trust leads to faster progress  
    Making confident decisions is the foundation of any successful business. Stop staying stuck in fear, anxiety, and doubt. Learn to trust that you can make the important decisions and you’ll be able to handle whatever happens next - regardless of the outcome.

    Ep. 34- Bonus Episode,-Just Do The Thing!

    Ep. 34- Bonus Episode,-Just Do The Thing!

    How many times have you said, “when I achieve this, then I’ll pursue that?”

    How many times have you put off your calling by waiting to take perfect action?
     
    In this very special bonus episode from the Becoming Boss archives is a never-before-heard recording of the first ever Becoming Boss podcast. From the guest bedroom closet. Surrounded by an old high chair, forgotten dumbbells, and facing all the fear of imperfect action.
     
    Here’s what Kristen wants you to know know about navigating your mindset to ditch the comparison and just do the thing:
     
    How to detect ‘when/then’ reasoning and stop it in its tracks What happens when we disqualify ourselves from our calling How we cheat ourselves when we procrastinate The mental narrative keeping you small and stuck Why showing up as yourself and nobody else is what your audience needs What taking massive action really looks like  
    Holding yourself back from sharing your voice keeps you and your business stuck in scarcity. Stop sacrificing your inner joy to pursue outward validation. It’s time to bravely believe in yourself, take messy action, and serve your clients by doing the thing you’ve been wanting to do.

    33. Overcoming Objections

    33. Overcoming Objections

    No matter how amazing a business is, how solid an offer or how fantastic a team is to work with, everyone will face objections. It comes with the territory of the cautious human brain, right? There will be reservations, concerns, and the need to minimize risk. But what often happens is that instead of seeing these objections as normal, we interpret them as rejection, which triggers defensiveness and sends us into a downward spiral.
    Kristen offers a way to overcome objections and neutralize mind drama. She wants you to actively expect objections to the product or service you’re selling. Handling objections is a necessary and illuminating part of the sales process.
     
    Kristen’s talking all about how to leverage objections as a valuable selling tool:
     
    The two forms of thought that tend to arise when facing objections Why only focusing on the sale can lose sales How to interpret opposition as a neutral and reasonable way to strengthen your business The shift of assuming positive intent on the part of the objector Exactly when to handle the critical step of resolving objections The importance addressing objections with curiosity and exploration How using self-awareness as a social seller will save you drama down the road The power of story to effectively address objections How to set standards in your content to help resolve objections early  
    Kristen wants to empower you to embrace objections with a clear mind and service focus, and it starts with conquering your fears and defensiveness around objections.
    Below is the video that Kristen references in her podcast. Watch and take notes with how she handles objections in a clean and loving way!

    32. Formulas, Scripts, and Strategies

    32. Formulas, Scripts, and Strategies

    If you have a social selling business, you’ve likely used a script, strategy, or “secret” formula that your leader (or a marketing guru) handed to you. And I’d bet that you didn’t see much return or success when you implemented any of them.
     
    That’s because the script isn’t the answer to a successful business: You are.
     
    Here’s what Kristen wants you to know about formulas, scripts, and secret strategies in the social selling industry:
     
    Why we are drawn to ‘magic strategies’ and formulas How using a sales script cripples your growth Why scripts are a turn off to your potentials The #1 reason you don’t have growth in your business Why finding your own voice feels so scary How scripts and diet pills get you similar results  
    There is no silver bullet when it comes to increasing your sales success in your network marketing business. Stop relying on the secret strategy that the marketing gurus are telling you to use. Learn how to show up as a real human and fail your way to finding your voice--attracting your best clients along the way.

Inspired

I always leave feeling inspired and ready to get after it each time I finish an episode! Love Kristen’s heart & her words are super encouraging! SHES THE TRUE BOSS!

ErinA2020 ,

Kristen is amazing!!

I’ve listened to several other podcasts for those of us in direct sales, and Kristen is by far my favorite. Her podcast is educational and encouraging, but she doesn’t shy away from hard topics we need to hear. Her approach has given me SO much hope for the future of direct sales, and she sets the perfect example of adding VALUE to those she serves.
