When Feeling Salesy Sneaks Up On You!

Season 1, Episode 20    |    17min

In this episode we dive into how feeling salesy can sneak up on you and cause you to start self sabotaging your business and slow down the results that are possible for you.

Friend, Has this ever happened to you?   

You would go to make a post or do a live video, and I the feeling of being too Salesy would sneak up on you?  

If you were like me, Fear of appearing salesy and pushy while working my business would throw me into a pit of self sabotage.


  1.  I was doing things that didn’t align with who I am

    1. dms

    2. Salesy posts

    3. Cold calls

    4. Complex marketing funnels

  2. I was focused on me instead of them

  3. I was focused on getting instead of giving.

  4. I was not believing in what I offered –

  5. It felt salty – vs. true belief where I know I can make a lasting difference in their life

  6. I was people pleasing – – then they can’t see the value you are offering they see the sales

Because of this I was:

  1.  Avoiding showing up

  2. Or showing up with a negative vibe

  3. Anxious

  4. Repelling clients

  5. Constantly battling with my inner mean girl.

  6. Falling back into old habits

But then when realized this was one of the missing ingredients in my business having success, I set out to change this.  

I had a mentor help me through this because to be honest , you have to work through it to be successful.  

Sales and marketing are apart of it.

I had to shift my thinking in a few key areas to move past “am I being salesy?”

  1. Building the belief in myself that coaching was an amazing gift to the person being coached.

  2. Building my belief that I was a freakin amazing coach.  Building my belief that I could truly help people find transformation in their life.

  3. Focus on others instead of myself

    1. I was people pleasing – – then they can’t see the value you are offering they see the sale

    2. I was looking to get instead of serve.

    3. Work on the idea of service, what that meant. (Help and inspire)

  4. Focus on value instead of teaching

  5. Focus on sharing my transformations instead of appearing like an expert

  6. Shifted to organic marketing vs. pushy marketing.

I started growing.

I started showing up in away that attracted

I started having people reach out to me and start conversations instead of the other way around.
