The skill that brings me freedom, stability and confidence
By Jessica Albon
A few months ago, Izzy was very sick. (Spoiler alert: he’s all better.) As you already know, I adore this dog. And I was very, very anxious.
I worried if I’d chosen the right vet. If we’d chosen the right treatment. If I’d done something wrong (I’d taken him for a long hike just the day before and I worried somehow I’d caused him to be sick). So much worry.
But there was one thing I didn’t worry about. Not for one second. It didn’t even cross my mind to worry about how I was going to pay for it.
How can that be? How can I not have one teensy tiny worry about how to cover an unexpected (and large) vet bill?
Because I have a very particular skill. A skill that’s always in high demand. A skill that I don’t always trot out, but that when I do, I can write my own ticket.
In fact, I can remember the very day I learned this lesson. It was Izzy’s first vet appointment (almost nine! years ago). They rang up the total and it was a lot more than it was supposed to be. I don’t remember why, but I handed over my credit card and my mom, who’d gone with us, asked me in a worried voice: “How are you going to pay for that?”
My answer surprised even me. I turned to her with full confidence and said, “I already have the money.”
And sure enough, when I got home, I discovered I’d made more than the total of the vet bill in sales of an ebook I’d written. (That ebook is long since off the market, but it was very popular, and, thanks to my sales copy, sold itself ’round the clock, week after week.)
I recently spoke with 384 business people over the course of about four months. (One-on-one, half-hour appointments with 384 people = a lot of time on the phone.) I wanted to find out what’s on the minds of business people like you, so I spoke with professionals, executives, consultants, solopreneurs, business owners, freelancers, etc, etc.
And through these conversations, I’ve seen clearly just how out-of-the-ordinary my experience is. Mind you, I’m not particularly lucky or special. And I’m certainly not doing back-breaking work here (I work in a gorgeous home office with beautiful, lush trees outside every window and the world’s dearest dog snoring at my feet–it would be crazy to call that “hard work”).
I’m just a gal with a certain skill. Yes, I came by some talent naturally, but most of what I know, I learned. Most of what I do, I do as a result of my training. I learned to do this. And so can you.
On the other side of this skill is the sweetest sense of freedom and stability and confidence. If you simply commit to learning it, you too can say with confidence, “I already have the money.”
Are you ready to commit to learning it?
Are you ready to learn how to write a sales letter that brings you more of your right clients and buyers? Are you ready to sell more of what you have to offer (both products and services)? Do you wish you knew the secret words to get people to say YES when you know what you’re offering would be perfect for them?
