Have you ever noticed how easy it is for outgoing people to sell stuff?
They get everyone laughing at their jokes. They’re the center of attention. And next thing you know, they’re closing another deal.
It just isn’t fair.
But the truth is, not all extroverted people were born that way. A lot of them have learned skills that YOU can learn too. Even if you’re an introverted creative freelancer.
At our next Freelance Forum event, we’ll hear from an expert sales consultant who has coached dozens of small business owners and introverted entrepreneurs.
He’ll talk about how to overcome your own self-imposed limitations and beliefs. He can’t turn you into an extrovert, but he CAN help you sell like one.
Jeff McKinney is a certified DISC Behavior Systems instructor and has been a top sales producer for every company he’s worked for. He also happens to be an introvert.
Jeff believes you can learn to focus your strengths to maximize your productivity and success.
