How do you learn sales and marketing?My mistake was thinking that other people just "have" it inside of them or that other people are born world class athletes, great entrepreneurs etc(which 99.99% of people believe in that lie).
Which is bullshit and it's one of the biggest, if not the biggest lie about success that exists out there. Certain big name entrepreneurs like to say "If you don't have it sinces this age then you don't have it" which is nonsense.
You can develop, improve and become pretty much anything you want in life.
Tthere might be some small exceptions to it obviously like if you're not born 7 foot tall and you want to be the next Shaquille O'Neal and you're only 5 ft 3 as an adult, it's never going to happen.
Or also the word luck, or that someone is lucky. That's also one of the biggest lies that is out there. Luck is simply when preparation meets opportunity.
Imagine you have 3 people with the same skill level, connections, they're selling the same service or product etc. One person does 10 cold calls, the second person does 100 cold calls and the last person does 1000 cold calls. Who do you think is going to close more deals? I'll bet all my money on the last person. And guess what? The first person who only did 10 cold calls will label the last person as "lucky" because he didn't put in the work over a long time.
Another thing is to learn sales and marketing and become world class at those. Selling and marketing are skills that you will need for anything in life.
You want to get that hot blonde 10/10 chick to be your girlfriend? Guess what? You have to sell and market yourself so she picks you and sleeps with you instead of the other 50 dudes who are constantly messaging her on Insta.
You want that business to pick you as their main marketer instead of the other 20 social media agencies who have offered them their services? Guess what? You need to SELL and MARKET yourself as the best person for the job.
You want to get the leading role for that Hollywood action movie when the director got 300 other options? Guess what? You need to SELL and MARKET yourself!
There are so many people who are literally geniuses; they can sing fabulously, are great actors or have amazing talents in sports but they fail to make it because they don't know how to sell and market themselves properly so the world never gets exposed to their talents unfortunately.
Bonus: This is a video that I've recorded from my old phone as a constant remainder whenever I fell down. Might help some of you:
Very well illustrated. Far too many people just dont market themselves well. It's all about personal branding. People slouch, they look like their mum dressed them, they skip gym days, they deathscroll willingly.You want to get that hot blonde 10/10 chick to be your girlfriend? Guess what? You have to sell and market yourself so she picks you and sleeps with you instead of the other 50 dudes who are constantly messaging her on Insta.
This is a big one and I see it a lot.People. Human Relations. Until I figured that out I had a lot of trouble. I wish I read "How to win friends and Influence People" long long ago. At least to get a baseline understanding.
Maybe don't make it a big scary task like "starting a business" and instead think about helping or entertaining people and getting paid?My mistake is that I am not starting a business
