I used to be in professional sales… for 15 years. I sold mostly IT into big corporates. I did not love it. It was highly lucrative though so a very difficult career to leave.
I suffered hugely with imposter syndrome. Absolutely convinced I was going to be found out. I didn’t really understand the products, I’m just not that technical. I didn’t really feel like I knew how to sell properly. No real training of course. I felt like a total fraud. I became a master at covering up my fears and doubts and building the illusion that I was confident.
When you run a business it magnifies everything about you. All your faults and flaws get projected out into the world. You can choose to continue the illusion or you can step up and close the gap between who you’re projecting and who you really are. I chose the latter.
It’s not an easy journey but it’s worth it. To come into your own power, to stand strong in who you are no matter what, to play your own game and be prepared to own the consequences.
Your realise your business also reflects all the good things about you too. Your integrity, your willingness to love and support, the genuine joy you find in other peoples successes, the impact you have in the world that ripples out.
Keep being courageous in your endeavours. Keep on showing up as your true self. Keep considering your customers and how you can best help them. Keep focussing on the life you want to create.
This week I had the best sales meeting I’ve ever had. With a team I put together in a business I built with someone I love, delivering services I am proud of that deliver real results to members I adore.
I am so grateful.
