When You Tell Me No

As a consultant I love hearing “Yes” But it’s OK to tell me “no”. 

When I hear “no” I hear….

“I can’t afford it.”

“I don’t want to waist your time.”

“It’s not my favorite taste or smell.”

“Maybe another time.”

As someone who is honestly passionate about what I sell seeing some one who enjoys sampling and loving the results is a huge “yes” for me. Even if they tell me they aren’t going to buy anything. I have learned that even if I hear a lot of “no’s” that doesn’t mean they do not like the products and it is NEVER personal. A lot of consultants who are all buissness and no passion hate “no”. Those are the consultant’s who have given the word consultant itself a bad name. Even I would run when I would see some one pull out a buissness card or people who would chase everyone down saying “try this”. 

I invite honesty. I invite sampling for fun. Why? Because I want to people to enjoy the product’s and not feel the need to buy them. I’m ok with “no” I’m also ok with “yes”.

  1. When I read this post, I see you as someone who can accept a no, and not many sales people are like that. In fact, they can get people into great trouble for buying something they cannot – and that can have repercussions on the work and getting paid! (Can you tell I’m a freelancer, LOL?) This is great. I’ll admit, it can be very difficult to take no for an answer anywhere in life, but it is part of maturity and leads to better results than trying to push for a yes.

    1. Glad you liked it! Hope you were encouraged : ) at times I’ll admit it’s still hard to hear “no” but I don’t believe in pushing products on people.

  2. This is so true. I work in sales, and sometimes you have to flexible and accepting with the answers you get. As far as your business goes for Arbonne, I have heard great things, but I have never tried the products. I will have to check out your storefront.🙂

  3. I have a lot of friends who sell products and have held it against me that I don’t buy their products. If I don’t have the money to spend on something we don’t need, I would hope a real friend and someone who can hear a NO would rather I don’t put myself in debt over buying a luxury item.

    1. No one should hold it against people for not buying products. Like you said cant go broke over things. Thats why I love Arbonne we have stuff for every day use.

  4. I love this. I used to be a consultant for Thirty One Gifts and I never hated the word “no” Often times no wasn’t a hard and fast no it was usually a ‘not right now’. I appreciated my friends and family telling me no they couldn’t order rather than going into debt and then resenting me. I think your outlook is great.
