Women are often shamed for using skills traditionally attributed to a good salesperson. Miriam Thiel, a conscious business & life coach, helps women entrepreneurs connect the dots to feel good about marketing and sales conversations without giving up on integrity. Through her unique process of breathwork and belief examination, Miriam helps woman embrace their full potential.
In this episode, Miriam shares her personal sales journey and explains how being an introvert can benefit sales. She explains the importance of active listening and transparency in a business exchange. Miriam encourages radical change by recognizing when you are uncomfortable and locating the belief behind that feeling.
Before entering any conversation, you need to feel in balance with yourself. If you enter a conversation with fear, people notice that. Miriam encourages you to enter relationships with vulnerability and authenticity.
According to Miriam, listening is an excellent Superpower. We all want to be seen, heard, and understood. Empathy and care for the other are valuable to a sales relationship.
Create the space for the client and yourself to say “no” if necessary; you don’t need to work with everyone.
According to Miriam, we live in systems, and sometimes, these beliefs are deeply ingrained in both men and women. While some traits are encouraged in men and some in women, it’s when we become whole beings and welcome all qualities in ourselves that we arrive at true abundance.
Miriam uses Revelation Breathwork and cites one of her favorite books, “The Body Keeps the Score,” by Bessel A. Van der Kolk, for reference.
Women can embrace their “sales side” by focusing on their connection with others and how they bring a valuable service to them. If you’re scared, you’re focusing on yourself; focus on the other.
