“Fear is a thief and a liar.” ~Dr. Nadia Y. Brown


Ever wrestled with the jittery demons of doubt and fear in your sales career? Prepare to arm yourself with the transformative power of courage in this episode of Straight Talk About Sales, as we dissect the mental barriers that stand between you and your next big win. Join me on a journey through my own battles with fear, drawing from a pivotal doctoral program experience that left me physically ill. Discover how adopting Mel Robbins' "The Five Second Rule" can shift you from paralysis to action, and why courage isn't just a nice-to-have, but an absolute necessity in the trenches of business and sales.


This episode isn't just a pep talk; it's a blueprint for redefining success on your terms, free from the distortive lens of social media and societal expectations. I get personal, sharing the unique emotional challenges of being a woman entrepreneur and the critical importance of disconnecting self-worth from the rollercoaster of business results. Learn to trust the power of your intuition, harness the courage to step decisively, and embrace a measure of success that's tailored to your personal journey. For anyone craving a fresh perspective on professional fulfillment, this conversation is your clarion call to action.


Key takeaways from this episode: 

  • Courage in sales is essential and can be bolstered with the Five Second Rule 

  • Defining success is personal – do it on your own terms and check in regularly 

  • Trust your gut; it’s your superpower when making decisions

Remember to keep adding tips and strategies to your own sales toolkit that will improve your revenue outcomes and equip you to serve your clients at a higher level.
