I Was Selling and Didn't Know It | Amanda Abella - 018
Selling In Color
People in underrepresented communities might feel imposter syndrome when selling in major industries. In today’s episode of Selling in Color, founder and CEO of Make Money Your Honey, Amanda Abella, tells us how she overcame her imposter syndrome by learning she’s been selling for far longer than she thought. Amanda had been selling most of her professional life. After graduating college, Amanda went six months without finding a job. But a friend gave her the book The Art of Nonconformity by Chris Guillebeau, and it opened her eyes to what she could do in life. She wanted to be a writer, so she took an opportunity to write financial articles. She got a job in recruiting but continued writing. In 2012, all of her internet friends quit their jobs to work freelance. Amanda was hesitant to follow suit, but she had to get over those fears before doing the same. She hired her first coach, and that woman helped her realize she’d been selling her entire career. How did Amanda get involved in sales? She started a coaching side-hustle in addition to her writing work. But Amanda soon realized she couldn’t easily scale a freelance writing business. She created Persuade to Profit, which is now her signature sales training program. The takeaway? You will never worry about money again if you know how to sell. Amanda kept training, learning, and putting herself in uncomfortable situations. Most female coaches teach you marketing launch strategies and how to warm up leads, but people have become way savvier to that. What they often don’t teach is sales. Amanda understands why women are uncomfortable in some traditional sales environments, and she realized she could be a translator and teach the mindset of sales to women. Amanda started a community around it and now has a free Facebook group for women coaches and course creators that organically grew to 1000 people within three months. Amanda’s advice to step out and find a place in sales? Reach out to people who bought your stuff and ask them how their purchase was - they're always shocked when an actual human reaches out to them. A lot of people experience imposter syndrome, and everyone has had a really crappy sales experience. (Just think of your high school friend DMing you to join their MLM.) But with the proper training and coaching, you can develop a feeling of confidence that can fuel success.

But all text messaging is not created equal. 85% of people prefer text over email and phone calls because they want to engage in a conversation, not listen to bots.

Welcome back to another episode of The Goal Digger Girl. I am so excited because I have a rock star sales woman here who is going to teach y'all how to make more sales and really feel confident in the process. So welcome on Amanda. Is it Abella? Is that how to say your last name? Amanda Abella: It's Abella. Kimberly Olson: Ooh, I like it. Abella. All right, girl. Well welcome on. We're so excited to have you. Amanda Abella: 00:24 I am so excited to be here. I'm thrilled. I think there's a great synergy between the audiences. 'Cause you talk about visibility and I talk about sales and I'm like, well! I mean if you have all these eyeballs on you, how do you convert them into money? So I think this is great. I'm super excited to talk about this. Kimberly Olson: This is so great. It's the perfect marriage. Yeah. And that's the thing. Like we do a lot with audience building and then they go, "but how do I actually close people?" And I teach funnel people to your Facebook group, love on them, nurture them, but there's still a gap between that and actually closing sales. So if you're new to anyone in my audience, can you share with everyone a little bit about you, your background? What got you into it? Amanda Abella: Yeah. So I am the CEO and founder of Make Money or Honey, which is a marketing and sales training company for creatives, coaches, and consultants. Women coaches, creatives, and consultants, I should say. And basically we help people with their system, influence and sales. So we'll help them build their intellectual property. We'll help them grow their influence. And then we actually teach you everything sales. Like I joke that our main program, sales is literally like half the program. And the reason I got here is because I've been in sales since I was 20, but nobody told me. So I was doing fundraising, I was a recruiter. That's what I was doing at my previous employment. I gave tours for my college, which was all about like sales presentation and getting donors and all that kind of stuff. And then I started my first business in 2010. I was actually a freelance writer. So I actually did marketing and freelance writing for financial companies, and financial brands, and financial websites for eight years.
