If selling makes you cringe then this video is for you.
The #1 challenge I help founders overcome is their ability to SELL.
Sell their product to customers.
Sell their story to investors.
Sell their company to key hires.
No matter how you look at it, selling is a crucial part of the entrepreneurial game...
... and if you do it right, it WON’T feel like selling.
Have I always had sales chops?
NO FREAKIN’ WAY!
And the collateral damage was pretty severe.
I had to suffer through 2 failed startups (and 200 sweat-stained dress shirts) before FINALLY choosing to make peace with selling once and for all.
I went on a learning binge, consuming HUNDREDS of hours of audio books and trainings from masters of the craft.
Now I consider myself pretty freakin’ awesome (yes I have a healthy ego :).
I enjoy the process.
My customers enjoy the process.
And the only one suffering the consequences of my newfound proficiency is my dry-cleaner ;-)
But now it’s your turn.
If selling still makes your stomach turn, it’s time to lay down your arms and make peace with this ESSENTIAL skill that you (and your startup) simply can’t live without.
And that’s why today, I’m going to teach you how to get your FIRST sale.
The key strategies I teach go like this...
- Selling Isn’t Being Salesy
- Ask For Advice, Get a Customer
- No = Not Yet
- Wide Funnel
I guarantee if you implement these 4 strategies & mindsets that it’ll shift your ability to communicate your passion and ask for others to get involved with your startup (notice the language I used just now? Was that salesy? Nope ;)
Yes it can be that simple.
Now it’s your turn... got out and sell, then come back and share your experience.
Or if you’ve already sold in the past, let's hear your story in the comments.
Tell others how you did it, what limiting beliefs did you have to overcome? How did you push through?
If it’s a private story, just hit reply and let me know.
Either way, excited to hear from you.

ABOUT DAN MARTELL
“You can only keep what you give away.” That’s the mantra that’s shaped Dan Martell from a struggling 20-something business owner in the Canadian Maritimes (which is waaay out east) to a successful startup founder who’s raised more than $3 million in venture funding and exited not one... not two... but three tech businesses: Clarity.fm, Spheric and Flowtown.
You can only keep what you give away. That philosophy has led Dan to invest in 33+ early stage startups such as Udemy, Intercom, Unbounce and Foodspotting. It’s also helped him shape the future of Hootsuite as an advisor to the social media tour de force.
An activator, a tech geek, an adrenaline junkie and, yes, a romantic (ask his wife Renee), Dan has recently turned his attention to teaching startups a fundamental, little-discussed lesson that directly impacts their growth: how to scale. You’ll find not only incredible insights in every moment of every talk Dan gives - but also highly actionable takeaways that will propel your business forward. Because Dan gives freely of all that he knows. After all, you can only keep what you give away.
