5 Points that will help you sell....ANYTHING

We're all salesmen in one way or another. If you go on a job interview, you're selling yourself. If you're a barber, you're selling a service. If you're in sales, you....well you get it. Sales is one of the highest paid professions whether you like it or not. If you do like it, here are a few pointers that might help.

1) People buy from who they like
-People would much rather spend money/do business with who they like. Nobody likes the greasy guy that'll do ANYTHING to get a sale. Establish trust early by being yourself. People smell fake.

2) People don't care what you have to say
-Again,People dont care what you have to say. They care how you can be a benefit to them. Shut up and listen to their needs, try to meet them. Thank me later.

3)People don't like pushy
-People don't want to be sold, they want to purchase. A wise man once said, "Let people do what they want to do, they're going to do it anyway." Don't oversell
Provide info, state how it benefits them, answer questions...

4) Know your product/service
-Know what you're selling. If someone asks you about your product and you don't know, you look stupid. Have a good knowledge of what you have to offer, or at least have a way of finding out what you don't know. If you don't know something, be honest, tell them you'll find out the best answer and get back with them. You'll sound stupid if you try to make it up as you go. Save yourself the embarrassment and be truthful. the truth shall set you free!

5) Build a relationship
To reiterate, people buy from who they like. Show that you're likable. Show you're a regular person too, not just some guy trying to make a buck. Crack a joke, find something in common, or even give a compliment. Build rapport. If people feel good about you, they'll buy MORE from you. Build relationships.

If you're going to sell, sell for yourself. Get or build a product you believe in, and go compete in the marketplace.

Racism and Police Brutality

I know a lot of people have racism and police brutality on their minds now more than ever. Some are complaining about it and some are  actively thinking about how to fight it. Maybe you are as well. I hope you are. All it takes for Evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.. Have you considered how to make the Black community more powerful, so we can have a stronger voice in society? Have you thought of getting into financial shape, so you have a business or generational wealth to pass on to your children? What about the Black dollar? Have you thought about ways to keep the TRILLIONS of dollars we spend every year circulating within the Black community? These are the questions I’ve been thinking about for years and here’s how I’m putting in the work to make big things happen for our communities... I teach people how to create the kind of economy that has real power in America. Because the truth is… The only color they REALLY care about is GREEN  Money can give you access, power, an

I care about you and want you to be protected

 I care about you and want you to be protected I will not mince my words here. We live in unprecedented times. I take the mission of equal justice under law VERY seriously. Quite honestly, we all know I own and operate  ShopMEEK.com  but I do not do build this business for money.  While I do like the residual income it provides, I already have enough to take care of my bills. I don't say that to impress you, I say that to impress upon you that I'm more mission driven than commission driven.  I take this very seriously and hope you do as well. When I was in my early 20s, I had a black Cadillac...vogue tires...black rag top...gold pin stripe...chrome FACTORY wheels...wooo that thing was clean.  I'm from the Eastend of Richmond. I always wanted a Cadillac. I've owned about 10...However I got pulled over and profiled once a week. It got so bad I ended up considering selling my car. I could not keep what I earned and deserved because cops decided to pull me over

Decade end....

Quick question... Have you reviewed your decade yet? I'm in the process of taking some time at the end of this year not only to look at the past year, but to review the past 10 years as the decade comes to a close. Isn't it amazing how far you've come since 2010 :) Where were you in your business in 2010? Where are you now? What did you start? What did you end? What investments did you make? What skill sets did you learn? What did you miss out on? I believe everything happens and unfolds in the way it should... I challenge you to do a personal and business audit. Decide what you want to keep...Decide what you want to discard. Decide what you want to do more of. Decide what you want to do less of.  Let's make your next move your best move and the rest of your life the best of your life....and make the beginning of this new decade one to remember!
