In this episode, I teach you how to drown out the “what ifs” that are killing your confidence, and teach you a practical strategy to build your confidence, and help you start selling your service.
Like a thief in the night, imposter syndrome creeps through the door when you least expect it, threatening to rob you of everything you’ve worked so hard to become. Before you know it, you’re frozen with fear, convinced that you don’t know enough to make even the simplest decision in your business.
The distracting doubts start shouting in the back of your mind:⠀
“I can’t start selling until I have more testimonials and receipts.”⠀ “No way my audience can afford a high ticket service.” ⠀ “I need one more certification then I’ll be ready to sell.” ⠀ You’ve decided that building a coaching business and making sales is “hard”. In reality, it’s because you haven’t given yourself permission to keep it simple and succeed. You don’t need another degree, certification, or another stamp of approval from some wannabe guru online before you start selling your offer.⠀
The evidence of what you’ve been able to accomplish is right in front of you. In this episode, I’ll teach you how to make your Evidence List: everything you have ever learned and accomplished.
Answer these questions for yourself:⠀
▪️How many degrees and certifications do you have?⠀
▪️What kind of results have you been able to get your boss at your 9-5?⠀
▪️How many people (free and paid) have you been able to get results for?⠀
▪️How much money have you spent on your education (courses, trainings, books)?⠀
Hear me out - the whole time you thought you weren’t good enough, you were actually overqualified.⠀
Stop comparing yourself to other online coaches and focus on serving your clients with the knowledge and skills you already have. You’ve got everything you need right now to start selling your services.⠀
Don’t wait to create a website. ⠀
Don’t wait to grow your email list.⠀
Don’t wait until you’ve gotten “just a couple more” testimonials from deeply discounted clients.
Start. Right. Now.
