Let's get started. Hello? Hello, everyone, this is Lindsay Dollinger. Welcome back to another episode of this social selling sisterhood podcast. I'm in the car on my way home from work, and I just wanted to share some thoughts with you about confidence on dis. Might not be like your normal your normal chitchat about confidence. But it is something that, um, really struck me as I was listening to a team training for one of the bigger teams that I'm on and they were asking, you know, what's your biggest challenges with recruiting? What's your biggest challenges with looking parties for finding new customers? All these things and people were giving feedback, and it was a lot of, you know, the common common things that you know, I don't wanna be Spammy. I don't wanna be sales e. I don't wanna X y z a lot of it. I heard was I I I And guys, it all boils down to confidence. Do you have confidence in yourself that you are providing a service for your customers by looking a party by sharing the latest launch that you have? Do you believe in yourself? Do you believe in your company? Do you believe in your products? If the answer is yes, then why are you afraid to ask people? Why are you afraid to reach out Thio? Someone who you think would make a really awesome distributor for your company and saying like Hey, so and so you know this this might might be coming out of nowhere. I just want to put a bug in your ear. I've been thinking about you a lot because I really think you would make an awesome whatever whatever company with distributor, I have a lot of fun doing it. I have an amazing, supportive team of women, and I would just love to share a little more about the opportunity with you. Are you are you open to hearing more? That's it, guys, you know is is someone gonna be like, No, you're supposed to healthy. I can't believe you message me from you reaching out like that. I would hope not. If they dio girl, they're not your people, right? So have some confidence in what you're doing. Have some confidence in that. You know that what you are doing is an awesome opportunity that, you know, you're not being sales of your spammy that, you know, you are providing, you know, an amazing service if they get involved with whatever you are offering. Okay, So there's just so so much of recruiting in sales that is just deeply rooted in mindset. Do you believe in yourself? Um, do you know what you're doing is honorable. Do you know what you're doing? Is the right fit for you in your life. And once you you fully believe you buy all in. And I'm not talking about buying in, like putting on the rose colored glasses and pretending like there's no problems with anything in your business or with your company. That's not what I'm saying. But you know are are you all in? Are you going all in? And if you're going all in and your belief is all in and you believe in yourself. You listen to podcasts, not just mine, but other people's podcasts. You know, you're learning about positive affirmations. You're taking care of yourself and your minds in the right spot. You're positive you're not negative. You know, it's it's not gonna be a problem reaching out to people. It's not gonna be a problem going down your customer list and following up with people because you you follow up with your customers. I know if you're listening to this, that you follow up with your customers that you tell him. Thank you for their orders that you check in and make sure that they love them, whatever product it is that you have. So I know you're doing that anyway, So why are you so afraid to reach out and say, Hey, I know you really love your whatever product. Have you ever considered hosting a party for me or with me? Maybe not for me, maybe with me. Have you ever considered hosting a party with me? I make it super fun and simple by doing X and then just stop there. Don't worry, vomit. You know, Don't send the hostess rewards, Pdf. Like all that jazz, just just have a conversation. Just a couple quick sentences. Have you ever Have you ever thought about it? Um, you know, and just leave it at that and ask guys, if you are not asking and you're not asking, I hesitate to use the word continually because I don't mean that you should be asking, like, every day, every week, things like that. The same person. Um, you know, if someone says no, right? Not right now. Asked him. Great. Can I follow up with you in a month and see if then is you know a better time or jot it down in your your follow up. However you follow up with people, uh, like, keep track of that. I hope you have a system for that, but jot it down. Thio. Check in with them in another month or another, two months or whatever, and then reach back out. But here's the thing with reaching back out. Do not let that be your next message to them or the next time that you communicate with them. Okay, So if you have someone on your list that you're like, I really would love her to host a party. Um, she's already referred five people to my V i p group and they've all bought and she comments and all my things and blah, blah, blah. So if that's already happened, you know, I've already added that person is a friend on Facebook, and between when I'm following up with them, I'm going to be commenting on their social media posts. I'm gonna be liking their stories. They're posting. Um, I might send a couple of love bombs like, Hey, Alicia, I hope you had a great Friday things like that. So that the next post in that messenger or the next next message sent rather in the in that Facebook messenger or text or whatever you're using isn't asking for the same thing again. Do you know what I mean? So, like, if I pull up a message and I'm like, Oh, crap, I asked this person a month ago to host a party, and there's nothing on here. I'm not gonna ask again. Like, twice in a row, I'm going Thio, send the love bomb. Happy Friday. Um hey, I saw that you posted some really awesome recipes. Do you have any that are low carb? I'm looking for some low car, you know, it could be anything Conversation starter or just And I'm thinking of you post, um, in messenger. But I wouldn't spam people by asking them twice in a row. So anyway, those were just some some tips. I really think because like I said, people were sharing. You know, all of their their reasons for for e don't know, struggling with recruiting or talking to people or selling or whatever. Just I was just hearing a lot of I I'm afraid I don't want to see this way. I don't. And it was just a huge red flag to me that I'm like women, girls, guys, people on our team. We gotta have confidence. We have to know and love our products and our company and just want to share it with people so that also when you start hearing those knows because you're gonna hear way more nose than you hear. Yes. Is when you start hearing those knows it's not going to get in your mind. It's not going to affect you negatively. You're gonna be like, okay and no It just means no, not right now. And we move on. Right? So no hard feelings way. Move on. So anyway, I hope that was helpful. Um, you know, confidence is something that is definitely it's something that it takes a lot of work to get to where you want to be, Um, and to be fully confident. And it's a very human thing to be lacking at times. And I don't want you to be hard on yourself, if that is you. However, I do want you to be self aware and then and then find a way to help increase your mindset, your positive mindset, your belief about yourself, your business, your company, all of those things. And I think you will see a big change in your business. Alright, guys, if you love this as always, please subscribe. Whatever Podcast platform. I guess it's called podcast platform that you listen.
