If you’ve ever said to yourself, “Gosh, I have all this valuable knowledge that the world really needs to know, but how do I convince people to actually pay me for it?” this episode is for you.
(Even if you don’t want to sell your knowledge per se, keep reading. Because the perspective shift you’re about to learn is the basis of all lasting relationships and long-term success.)
A few months back, I noticed a smart question on my Facebook page. It was from someone with a wealth of knowledge and expertise about food sustainability, but who was having trouble translating that wisdom into a profitable business.
Since current research estimates we humans waste about one third of all food produced worldwide — while hundreds of millions of people go hungry every day — this is an important moral, economic and environmental issue that must be solved.
But here’s the harsh truth…Focus on solving real problems and you’ll never have to convince people to pay. Click To Tweet
No matter how important or necessary your expertise is, if you’re not aware of what I’m about to share, you’ll struggle to get others to see the value in what you offer.
The problem isn’t really about figuring out how to sell yourself better or behave like someone you’re not. Nor do you need to necessarily ‘convince people’ that your ideas have value.
The real obstacle here is a common perspective mistake many entrepreneurs make when they’re first getting started. Thankfully, a simple shift in your point of view is often all it takes to solve it.
If you struggle with how to convince people to pay for your knowledge or how to sell yourself with more ease, this 2-step method will help.
You’ll learn two simple ideas that can completely transform the way you approach sharing what you do. In fact, if you really embrace these ideas you can forget about figuring out how to sell yourself or ever trying to convince people that they need what you sell.
