“Don’t allow this simple two-letter word, that’s actually a part of the sales process, to completely derail your vision and your dreams.” ~Dr. Nadia Y. Brown


Ever faced the gut-punch of rejection in sales and wondered how to pick yourself back up? Buckle up, as we unravel the art of transforming a resounding "no" into a stepping stone for success in this episode of Straight Talk About Sales. Picture this: you're a woman at the helm of your own enterprise, and each rejection feels like a personal attack. But what if I told you that it's all part of the dance? Through my own trials and tribulations, I'll guide you through the emotional battlefield of sales, where every "no" isn't a setback, but a chance to refine your pitch and polish your approach. Discover the essential strategies that keep you buoyant in this high-stakes game, and learn to navigate the pricing conundrum that leaves so many would-be entrepreneurs watching from the sidelines.


Now, let's shift gears and talk invites—how do you extend that all-important offer without the fear of refusal clouding your every move? It's about embracing the 'No's and seeing them as inevitable mile markers on the road to a 'Yes'. I'll take you on a journey from the paralyzing fear of hearing "no" to the thrill of chasing down a hundred of them with the 100 No's Challenge. It's not about the immediate win; it's the long game, where persistence meets practice. So, join me in a candid conversation about the sales odyssey that all entrepreneurs must embark on, where learning to extend an invitation is as crucial as the offer itself. Together, we'll unlock the secrets to building resilience, fostering relationships, and ultimately, propelling your business to new heights.
