Have you ever been stuck? You want to grow your business, but you’re scared of social media, and you don’t know how to contact your prospects. Or maybe you have prospects. You meet all these people on social media, but you don’t know what to say or how to reach out to them. You know this business works and you’re determined, but the fear or prospecting is holding you back. Today I’m going to share one mental shift that is going to help you overcome the fear of prospecting.
I started the business in November 2003. When I first started in the business, I was nervous, as I’m sure some of you can relate to. My first two months I made no money in the business, which is because I only talked to ten people. Then I had a mental shift two and a half months in.
The reason why most of you are nervous to prospect is that you have the wrong goal. You approach a contact and you want to recruit them to get them into the business or get them to buy the products. If you are focused and worried about recruiting, you will be nervous, which creates fear.
The simple mental shift: When you approach a prospect, simply let them know you have a business.
That little shift was the difference between me talking to ten people in two months and me talking to 30 people in the next three weeks, which is how I got my first sign up. When you approach your contact list, you do not care whether they join or not. Your goal is simply let them know you have a business.
Simple script that works every time
Ask a friend: I’m really curious, and I need your advice and opinion on something. Can you watch this video? I’m super excited about this video and what’s going. It only takes 2-3 minutes. Watch this and let me know what you think.
A prospect will have three doubts
- Is this for real?
