Selling is Asking the Right Questions
Is the Health Coaching Space Saturated? We Think Not
Ethical Sales: How to Feel Good Selling
Dr. Aaron LeBauer Notable Quotes
“In the right context or in the right environment, asking the right questions, asking for the sale isn’t going to feel greedy or pushy or slimy, it’s going to be doing a service to our customers, clients, and patients.”
– Dr. Aaron LeBauer
“The key to feeling good about selling something is we have to ask questions. The best sales start with questions because I need to find out if I can actually help someone. And if I can, then I can ask them permission to tell them about the product that I think is going to help. We’re asking for permission, we’re asking questions to find out people want. And if we do that the right way and we ask the right questions, then it doesn’t feel like a sale—we’re in an interview to see, are we a good fit to work together.”
– Dr. Aaron LeBauer
As health coaches, what we want is to help people—as many as we can—which is why we set up our health coaching practices. But the thing is, we won’t be able to help people if our businesses don’t last because we’re too afraid to ask for that sale.
In this episode of Health Coach Academy, we’re talking to physical therapist and business coach Dr. Aaron LeBauer to walk us through how we can look at selling in a way that doesn’t feel icky or slimy, while also dispelling the myth of saturation.
