You’ve probably had a sales conversation with someone that left you feeling a bit confused. You spent some time evaluating their needs, felt that surge of excitement realizing you could really help them, and you sense you are really hitting it off. Then, as you ask for the sale, you get the dreaded “I need to think about it.”

You’ve hit buyer resistance. What you do in this moment can make a significant impact over the buyer’s decision process. Far too often the seller lets THEIR limiting beliefs and fears kick in and they back down and don’t hold space for the buyer to step into THEIR power.

In episode 122 of Amplify Your Success podcast, I’d like to help you feel more shift out of confusion and into being a powerful resource to help your prospects decide (and hopefully that means a yes to working with you.)

Inside this episode I’ll unpack five elements to overcome indecision or buying resistance for coaches, consultants, service professionals and online business owners.
