Escaping the Scarcity Spiral

Here’s the problem we all have when we’re starting out; we lack proof of our value so valuable people look right past us. It’s like the old problem of “how am I supposed to get the experience if you won’t give me the job?” and it can be a deal killer. 

The best way to get your foot in the door is to give someone something of value. But if you can’t see your own value, how can you possibly give what you don’t have? And if you can’t deliver value upfront, how can you possibly become valuable in the future? This is the feedback loop that kills more careers before they even start. And there’s only one way to escape it. Listen to this week’s episode and discover the secrets of:

  • How to make yourself valuable to people who already have everything
  • Why you don’t see your own value (and how to fix it)
  • Where you need to focus your attention if you really want to solve someone’s problems for a profit
  • One simple mindset shift that makes you immediately more attractive to your ideal clients
  • Why most people never get out of scarcity mindset
  • The best way to lead a sales conversation
  • Why giving is the best way to receive what you want in life
  • How simple wins always lead to bigger wins
  • Why looking at the bigger picture isn’t the best way to connect with your clients
  • And a lot more
