Sales as a Collaborative Journey

Dispel the Fear Around Sales and Rejection

Stop Leaving Money on the Table and Ask for That Sale!


Nikki Rausch Notable Quotes

“I truly believe that sales isn’t something that you do to another person, I think sales is something to do with people. And when you’re too caught up in what’s going on in your own head and any of that internal dialogue going on, you’re making it all about you, and you’re thinking about you, and what’s the other person thinking about you…that isn’t helpful in a sales conversation.”
Nikki Rausch

“Sometimes a ‘no’ is just a ‘not yet,’ and that’s okay.”
Nikki Rausch


Episode Summary

We health coaches went into the health space because we want to help people. And in order to help people, we’ll need a sustainable business. And to have a sustainable business means we’re going to have consistent sales. The thing is, many of us feel icky about having to make those sales. Fortunately for us, it doesn’t have to be.

In this episode of Health Coach Academy, we’re talking to The Sales Maven Nikki Rausch to reframe how we see sales in a way that makes it not about us, but about our clients. She’ll also share some tips on how to be better salespeople to our potential clients.
