Overcoming Your Fear Of Sales (So You Can Close ANYBODY) With Joe Serio Ph.D.




The Fear Of Selling

The show is kicked off with Joe defining what fear is and how this related to past experiences and future projections that your brain makes.

“Fake fears. We create, we lean, on to make excuses.” – Joe Serio

Joe then shares his thoughts on how fear is relative and in 99.99% of B2B sales situations it’s a pointless waste of energy for the person worrying.

“Number 1, who are you? Number two, what do you want?” – Joe Serio

The show is wrapped up with Joe pointing out that most people have no idea who they truly are and even more astonishingly most people don’t know what they want out of life.

They use fear as a crutch, as an excuse not to answer these deeper questions and until they do they can never be rid of their fears.
