Key Pointsmade by Joleene
On practicing the art of being brave: “You have to kick fear in the face.”
“Fear is always with you. You have to learn how to handle it, manage it, and carry it.”
On the steps it took to leave her career: “It was about setting an intention, and slowly stepping into it.”
On adversity: “There are many challenges, and you will fall to your knees, but you have a choice: you can stay down there or you can get back up.”
On successfully finding your client’s need: “You have to find their ‘pain.’ When people are struggling, they need a solution, and you will have what they need. The only way to truly understand what they need from you is to go into their ‘pain’ and explore it.”
“You can’t think about money, you have to think about service.”
On fear of closing: “It’s removing the idea of a salesman from the table, and putting back what should have been there from the jump: serving your client’s needs.”
Selecting clients that understand that they are paying for your experience, skill, and what you can bring to the table, and not simply your time, will allow you to find your overall value to that customer.
