How to Get your First Paying Clients, without Feeling like You’re Desperately Chasing People Down EP354
In 18 months, I only landed two paying clients. Here I was an internationally award-winning sales and marketing expert, and I couldn’t get any new clients for my first business. Every week I would be on my shower floor crying, begging the Universe for answers, and in total fear that I would have to go back to my corporate career. It wasn’t for a lack of effort, I pitched at least 50 companies, flew all over the US, sent emails, asked for referrals, worked LinkedIn, and NOTHING seemed to be working. My inner bully was like, “see I knew you couldn’t do this entrepreneur thing….you can sell stuff for big corporations but not for yourself.” My pride (ego) wouldn’t allow me to open up and share this with anyone, I was filled with so much shame, and I didn’t want anyone to know. One day after sleeping for 12 straight hours from pure exhaustion, I got a clear AF divine download…”Stop trying so hard Tiffany, it’s not a good look on you.” I spent the next full week in a state of full surrender, and was determined to scratch everything I had been doing and start over in every way. Within two weeks clients who I pitched a year prior came out of the blue needing my services, happily willing to pay my new higher rate…. here’s what I changed: I re-packaged and priced my services, based on what I knew it was worth versus what I felt people would pay. I created and prioritized a morning routine designed to pump my self up, reminding my self of how talented and exclusive my expertise was, and told any other negative thoughts to F OFF! I stopped trying so hard, and being in the energy of chasing people down. Instead, I embraced that the right clients need me, and not the other way around.
