Online Business Coach Katie Collins Reveals How To Overcome The Fear of Selling With Heart-Centered Strategies On Influencers Radio

Published

on

On a recent episode of Influencers Radio with Jack Mize, Katie Collins discussed how she is helping Coaches, Healers, and Online Experts overcome their fear of sales and visibility so they can finally make the impact — and the income — of their dreams.

It’s no secret that for a business to be successful, it must generate sales. And while there is certainly a wealth of opportunity for solopreneurs who have the talent and willingness to help others, many lack the sales skills that will allow them to reach their business’s full potential. 

During the interview, Collins revealed one of the biggest roadblocks coaches have when it comes to selling is the fear they have to become a pushy salesperson, saying, “They are afraid they have to be a different person when they’re in a sales conversation. And anytime we’re asked to be inauthentic, we don’t want to do it, so we make up these stories in our heads telling ourselves that we can’t ever be good at sales because that would mean that we have to become some sort of sleazy, slimy salesperson. These stories just keep getting in the way. Because you can be so good at what you do. But if you don’t have the skill to sell it, you will never be successful.”

Collins went on to share her solution to overcoming this roadblock by taking what she calls a ‘Heart-Centered’ approach to sales, saying, “Heart-centered sales is going into the conversation with the intention for the person on the other end to come to an empowered ‘decision.’ I didn’t say an empowered ‘Yes’ because that’s just assuming that everyone’s the right fit for you. By asking really transformational questions, you can help the people who are the right fit to see things from a different point of view ….  In the coaching world, we are selling the possibility of transformation. By helping them see their blind spots, whether it’s ‘I don’t have time’ or ‘I don’t have money’  or ‘I don’t know if I’m going to do this,’  and taking that heart-centered, empathic approach, you are able to show them what has been keeping them stuck this whole time. It’s just having a real conversation with them, putting the script aside and listening deeply to what they say, and responding in a way that creates a truly transformational conversation with them.”

Whether someone decides to work with Collins or not, her hope is that they walk away from that conversation thinking, “Oh, she’s right. That’s something I’ve got to work on.”

Listening to this episode, it’s easy to understand why Collins is so highly regarded by solopreneur coaches for her ability to transform the fear of sales into excitement for the conversation. It’s also why so many top coaches attribute their success to Collins’ strategies for creating and selling profitable packages and programs while remaining aligned with who they are so that they never have to feel pushy or sales-y.

Resolute Media CEO Announces Brisbane THRIVE Initiative for Local Businesses

Published

on

Resolute Media CEO, Brian Richards, has revealed a new initiative for local Brisbane, Queensland businesses, to be launched officially in the first week of September, 2021.

Called the Brisbane THRIVE Initiative, this project will seek to assist local South East Queensland businesses in Australia, especially those who are continuing to feel the impact of the pandemic.

“Business is a challenge for smaller operations at the best of times,” said Richards, “Given the additional hurdles continuing to be faced, we want to make the best traffic, training and tools we have available to interested Brisbane businesses.”

Richards has decades of experience in employing digital technologies to support business outcomes. He is keen to provide more immediate, practical, evidence-based support for the small business sector.

Resolute Media has already begun work on the infrastructure and systems needed to start rolling out the Brisbane THRIVE Initiative from early September through to the end of 2021 and potentially ongoing, depending on the feedback and outcomes experienced.

“We have always believed in leading with value,” Richards explained, “That has meant creating results in advance for clients wherever possible. We have now expanded and formalised that long-held business philosophy in our new credo of Proof Over Promises.”

Richards asserts that Proof Over Promises principles will underpin all aspects of the Brisbane THRIVE Initiative. This means that local business owners will be afforded numerous weekly opportunities to test out for themselves a broad range of cutting edge marketing technologies, at no cost and with no obligations. A number of these resources are proprietary and exclusive to Resolute Media, who will fund the initial availability of these assets.

The marketing systems firm will also provide comprehensive training, tools and traffic options on a complimentary basis from September onwards. It is devoting August to setting up structures, preliminary testing and seeking feedback from interested parties.

Those parties will include local Brisbane charities and groups, who have also been severely impacted by the pandemic. Resolute Media will be looking for opportunities to support these non-profits in a number of projects under consideration for this year.

Further information can be obtained by emailing [email protected] A dedicated website and social media presence are also being created to provide regular updates leading up to the launch of the Brisbane THRIVE Initiative in early September, 2021.
