Chris Spurvey - Selling Entrepreneurship

The Authentic Networker Podcast: Hosted By Richard Bliss Brooke

Chris Spurvey consciously chose entrepreneurship as a way to create a better life for his family. Yet there was one giant hurdle blocking his path to success: the negative way people view sales. He knew this was a problem, not just for his own business, but for the businesses of virtually every other entrepreneur. (Can you relate??) So he found a way to sell that felt right and went on to focus on helping other “non-sales sellers” grow their revenues –consistently and without all the stress!

Chris Spurvey – The Ambivert Advantage – How to Sell When You Don’t Like Sales (AoL 176)

The Angles of Lattitude Podcast: Learn from the Successes of the Creatively Self Employed

For many people, the main reason they don't start a business is simply because they don't want to (or feel they can't) sell. In fact, many of the most successful books in business are those that teach the reader how to sell. And interestingly, many of those books teach tactics that reinforce the reader's perspective of sales. This perspective being that sales is all about bypassing objections that a potential buyer would have.However, what I've learned in the last few years is that sales, when done right, is more about adding value or service to someone who needs a particular solution. Meaning that, if you're looking to develop a sales process, it needs to include a phase where you can ask questions from the potential buyer. It also needs to include a point where you suggest the solution based on the buyer's needs. And then, if they need help, they'll ask for it.This session's guest, Chris Spurvey, is all about that process. And, in fact, he suggests that ambiverts, who are people who aren't quite extroverts or introverts are the best equipped to do sales.Interestingly enough, most people who can't think of doing sales the "traditional" way, are, in fact, ambiverts.In this session, we learn from Chris why ambiverts like him, have this special power to be super successful at giving people what they want.If you've dreaded sales in the past because you don't want to come across as being sleezy or pushy, then this chat is one you don't want to miss.Enjoy!SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT:How did Chris get over his initial perspective on sales? 12:19If someone wants to change their perspective on how to sell, what kind of mindset shift would help directly with that? 19:21What does he think about the concept of people trying to do the smallest amount of work for the greatest ROI when it comes to their effectiveness as a business owner? 25:34Why does Chris believe business systems are so important? 29:04What was the decision process like for Chris to write a book even though he didn't see himself as an author? 33:25Does he have advice for those who feel they're being pressed to write a book but they don't feel that they're an author at heart? 37:50What's Chris' pandemic pivot looking like and what has him excited about it? 40:27Which song, book, and film would he add to the national curriculum? 44:55Is there something he's been recently learning about he's excited to start implementing? 46:52What's something he'd like to do in his lifetime that no one knows about? 48:04Is there something that's changed his life for under $100? 48:50What's the secret to achieving personal freedom? 49:48ITEMS and PEOPLE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE:Chris Online: Website, LinkedIn, YouTubeCohost: Veronica KirinPowered By: Uncover Your Personal MissionGregory Diehl AoL PodcastReiss Motivation ProfileAndy Dix AoL InterviewThe Greatest Networker in the WorldMach2 with your Hair on Fire - Richard BrookBlueprint your Bestseller - Book Architecture MethodI Remember You - Skid RowShawshank RedemptionEvernoteRight click here and save-as to download this episode to your computer.SHOW NOTE EXTRAS:How to Sell - Business Begins When You Start a ConversationMake Potential Clients More Invested in the Buying ProcessWhat Your Customers are Actually Buying from You3 Tips How to Break out of A SlumpThanks for Listening!Thanks so much for joining us again this week.
