    #120: How to Change Your Sales Mindset to Make More Money in Your Business with Helen Walker

    #120: How to Change Your Sales Mindset to Make More Money in Your Business with Helen Walker

    When I say sales, you say? Sleazy? Pushy? Manipulative? If you're not a fan of selling, I get it! And so does my guest and good friend, Helen Walker.

    As consumers it's normal to question the offers that are being sold to us and to be a little skeptical about the tactics that are being used to convince us to buy. But, when we carry those mindset issues into our business it can really slow down our growth.

    In this episode, Helen and I unpack some of the biggest mindset blocks that we have as women in business that are holding us back from reaching our full potential.

    We talk about...
    When free content should end and payment should begin for our expertise How to get comfortable asking for money when you're a purpose-driven business ownerWhy we need to learn to say 'no' more in business without explanation and set up better boundaries in our business practicesHow to put reframe your thinking about selling so you can increase your sales without feeling unauthentic If you're struggling with your sales process and need some tough love to help you get your money mindset in place, this is the episode for you. 

    About Helen Walker:

    Helen Walker, self-confessed neuroscience geek, knows first hand how building a business brings challenges, overwhelming stress and impostor syndrome. Without the mental strength to manage her emotions, building her first business felt like an everyday uphill struggle. 
    Now, Helen helps female entrepreneurs step off that emotional roller coaster and build unshakable self-belief giving them the confidence to show up be visible, overcome their fear of selling and finally charge what their programs and services are worth! 
    Her transformational 6 month group coaching and accountability program, A Confident New You, gives women in business a practical psychological system to retrain their brain and reprogram unhelpful thoughts beliefs, emotions and behaviours. 
    Helen is passionate about up-skilling women and providing the tools that will finally allow them to get out of their own way, get unstuck and create an extraordinary life and business they love.

    As we’re getting closer to the end of the year and I’m starting to finalize my planning for 2023, I’ve been thinking a lot about where I was when I started my business in 2020 compared to where I am now.

    I’ve learned a lot from these mistakes and I truly think that we learn more from what we do wrong than we do from what we get right. But I also hope that this list will help you to avoid some of the things that tripped me up, so you can get your business moving further faster.

I’ve learned so much from Jan’s podcast. I binged listen to all of them as soon as I discovered it. Thanks Jan for the great content!

Practical not “guru” advice! Real world experience

Jan is such an excellent teacher and business strategist. She is my new favorite podcast! -Ashley The Money Mindset Podcast

The Marvelous Mrs Dog Walker ,

Life changing

I learned of Jan through her interview she had done on another podcast. I thought to myself wow this could be someone who could guide me to my next chapter in life.

I was in a funk and I didn’t know what I wanted to do but knew I had the mindset to start another business. I joined her 30 day free Boot Camp and definitely one of the best experiences I’ve ever had.

I joined not having a clue what I was going to do but trusted the process. Jan and her team and the members were so helpful in flushing out what my new path in life would look like.

I have joined a lot of different online business courses but non compare to Jan Ditchfield.

I am now on my way to reigniting an old flame I had back in college, a passion that I’ve always had but never thought I could do because I just didn’t have the education needed or at least that is what I thought. And here I am about to launch in a few months @soultreeapparel
