FOR BEGINNER Sellers: Passion is everything. Passion is the juice you must have to turn others on, without it you can’t sell well. With it, you can create magic.
This week I was reminded of this energy. It was when I interviewed two incredibly passionate businesswomen who infused their products and customers with love. They were lit up. Although their journeys were slightly different their belief systems and how they approach their work, world and life were so similar it was freaky.
Speaking with Niki Price, co- founder of Inner-Eco-Probiotic Kefir http://www.inner-eco.com/and Zhena Muzyka of Gypsy Tea http://www.gypsytea.com/made check my passion meter. Yes, I’ve got it but I don’t always shine it. Sometimes I think I have to be more buttoned up and if I haven’t managed my stress levels my passion is zapped. Being with them was a wake up call. I love the effect my passion has on others and on me. I vow to shine it more. Will you?
Both in their own way reiterated how Face-to-face connections are critical. Human connections will always put you over the top. Alchemy happens when we touch hearts and minds, nothing is a substitute for face time. You need to get out in the field more and out of your comfort zone and share you thing and things will happen.
FOR ESTABLISHED SELLERS: How can you restart your passion or fan it? One little trick is to use beginners mind. Look at your products, services and customers with new eyes. How can you start anew?
MY ITALIAN STREETWISE BOSS WAS A GENIUS and he said: “ Give me a passionate person and the rest will fall into place,” It’s the one thing that isn’t teachable. Gallo told me he hired on instincts and gambled on the applicants’ juice. He asked: 1) Are they hungry? 2) Do they have passion? If the had it they’d find a way to succeed.
When you head out into the world to share your wares don’t forget your Passion + Preparation.
Oprah said it well: “Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you.” Go out and light someone up.
