SNAKE OIL SALESMAN - Making connections
Updated: Nov 12
So I was thinking about how I approach people when it comes to business. I am a coach and it is my job but also my passion to serve everyone. To be a force for good.
But something was troubling me.
I felt like I was selling instead of serving. I felt like I was the proverbial snake oil salesman.
(for the record I have no intention of researching snake oil as I enjoy my childhood image of it is obviously oil that is sold and made by snakes in cowboy hats)
So I have been talking to people and having great conversations but have been hesitant when it comes to asking them anything too coachy! After all I am British and we have a long standing relationship with talking exclusively about the weather and roads and all other emotions may only be discussed on our death bed or in song.
But then I thought, you know what… I am not helping anybody just having polite chit chat!
If I see there is an area where I can help you level up and improve your life and create huge transformations YOU ARE DAMN RIGHT I AM GOING TO TRY AND HELP YOU!
I no longer take any of my conversations for granted and I live in a place of serving powerfully.
…...and if you choose not to then that’s awesome too. I wish you nothing but all the happiness.
I think when we come from a genuine place of wanting to help other first and foremost we can show up powerfully and make HUGE changes, just be living outside of ourselves.
Now I am off to drink some of that delicious snake oil and help make other peoples life amazing today.
(Obviously I still refused to google what it is)
