As Health Professionals, we dedicate our lives to helping others. We don’t see delivery of our services as something we “sell”. In fact, selling can be seen as a dirty word, something that's only done to make a quick buck. We may think of sales as being pushy and aggressive, with salespeople often seen as untrustworthy. We worry about jeopardizing the trust we’ve built with our patients and peers.
Having said that, do you believe your professional knowledge, expertise, and potentially lived experience, may be of value to anyone looking to improve health? They may be patients and caregivers, employers, leaders in any sector, or perhaps innovators and entrepreneurs with healthcare start-ups, all in need of your help. Selling what you know is not bad. If anything, wouldn’t holding valuable information back that could help people’s health and wellbeing be worse?
You have a tremendous opportunity to make an impact and create a healthier, happier world by serving as an independent consultant, advisor, or coach. If you design your business well, you’ll also be able to work less, so you can enjoy the freedom and control that comes from having your own venture. However, if you want to start a business that thrives, then you’ll need to be better at sales (and the marketing that comes with it).
In this week's episode of Tribe Talks, I share the 3 steps that have helped me make my first sales in my own online business. I also share how you can get your hands on more free training that will help you:
