Minutes before team gets here. Selling everything like I do wine, I tell myself about something I have approaching. Selling should never be selling as I’ve noted in the past, in recent entries and if not then recent writings. Genuine, present, connected communication. Telling the story while listening to someone else’s narrative and deeply considering that. An interaction but more. More rich and textured talk. Thinking of how the wineries I’ve worked at in the past, and other jobs, how their intention and focus on the sale, on conversion, is far too obvious.
I’ve now elected to embody new motion, a new beat for the purpose of building business and selling. And that is to do anything but. Talk to people, meet them, know them better than I know what I’m representing. Wine is life, and I sell life, if anything. How incredible it is to be here, PRESENT, and with the opportunity to know people, know what they want, help them get there… to their There.
Not many people like to be sold, or want to be. They want to be happy, they want to enjoy the moment, the conversation. That’s my focus, their enjoyment of the interaction. Still developing these notes, but I am developing them and playing with approaches and methods of doing so. So…. Off into the Field and day, where I put such to practice.
