You know the old saying, “If you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life”. You love your profession, you are good at it and you love helping businesses. When you make the decision to take your passion and skills and hang your shingle as an independent consultant, you quickly learn that you need to adopt a new passion, requiring a new saying: “If you don’t love SELLING what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life”. Not because your love for what you do makes work not feel like work, but rather because you literally will have no business.
In addition to all the other stuff that you do, as an independent consultant you are your own sales team. You quickly learn that this sales component takes up a lot of your time. It’s a new skill that you have to master to grow your business, even if you don’t like it or think you are good at it. Not being able to sell your own services will make it hard to compete against other companies in your field, even though your knowledge and skills may be better than your competition.
Bottom line, you need to learn how to sell.
But, sales is more than networking, and cold calling, or building a killer website with a contact page, or dabbling in social media marketing.
