If you're ready to take your sales strategy and leadership skills to the next level, this episode is a must-see! Five Badass Q&As Q1: What inspired you to adopt the BDSM theme for your podcast? A1: It was a way to stand out from my competitors. I wanted to create something unique that would grab attention and also align with my personality and background in the kink community.  Q2: How do you help people overcome the fear of selling? A2: I teach them to make it about the customer, not themselves. People love to buy, but they hate being sold to. By focusing on helping others, the fear of selling diminishes. Q3: What are the most common mistakes people make in direct sales? A3: They rely too much on the job's flexibility, treating it like a side gig instead of a business. They also need to identify their ideal customer and market to everyone, which is ineffective. Q4: How do you handle objections about direct sales being a pyramid scheme? A4: I clarify that pyramid schemes involve no actual product or service sold, whereas legitimate direct sales companies offer tangible products. I also draw parallels to traditional corporate structures, which are similarly hierarchical. Q5: What advice do you have for building a motivated sales team? A5: Identify the right people who share your values and are enthusiastic about the product. Avoid recruiting just anyone; focus on those you enjoy working with and who fit your team culture.  Five Badass Quotes - People love to buy; they don't love to be sold.  - Being attractive is the new currency. - You might flex yourself right out of business if you're careless. - Sales is a part of business. If you want to be an entrepreneur, you are going to sell. - Fear and excitement feel the same in your body. The difference is the story you tell yourself.  Five Badass Takeaways - Make it About the Customer: Focus on helping others rather than just making a sale. - Stand Out: Find a unique angle or theme to differentiate yourself in the market. - Know Your Audience: Understand and connect with your ideal customers and team members. - Embrace Fear: Transform fear into excitement and use it as a motivator. - Build Relationships: Maintain connections even if a sale doesn't happen immediately; they can lead to referrals.  Contact Info  Website: https://badassdirectsalesmastery.com   Calendar: talkwithjennieb.com  Text “DOM” to 213-409-8366 for direct sales resources.
