You’ll be enriched by listening to this episode.
How Natasha Allrich discovered that the problem she had with sales was a problem of receiving.
Natasha learned her elementary sales skills from envisioning and promoting a non-profit organization that was close to her heart. It was easy for her to step into that role, to ask people to join her in a vision aimed at helping children across the globe learn how to read. She saw it as being an advocate for the children and helping others come alongside her to be an advocate as well. When someone brought it to her attention that she was actually selling by asking for donations, she resisted the idea. It seemed too selfish to call it selling but in time, she saw that it was true. That began her personal mindset shift. She began to see that she had a hard time speaking of “selling” because she had a hard time receiving from others. Hear the entire story on this episode.

Sales is about service: to others and to yourself.
One of the biggest reasons women entrepreneurs mention as why selling is difficult for them is that it seems pushy or sleazy. Do you see how that impression is as much a mindset as it is a reality? Surely you’ve been served by a salesperson who didn’t seem that way, right? What was different in that situation? It’s likely that you felt the sales person was truly interested in you and eager to serve you to meet the need you had. Natasha Allrich says that one of the most important mindset shifts that needs to happen around selling is this: Selling is about service – to you and to the potential buyer. You are helping them and they are helping you. It’s a win-win sales situation. Natasha’s refreshing way of approaching sales will get you excited about the possibilities of taking on a new approach to this often troublesome area of business. Listen in to this episode to hear all the details of her approach.
Black women are taught that it’s not OK to ask for help. It’s a lie.
In her successful coaching and sales career, Natasha Allrich has learned that rethinking her role as a business owner and entrepreneur included reconsidering what she could actually do on her own and what she couldn’t. Deep inside her was a belief that it wasn’t OK for her to ask for help or to rely on others to complete certain aspects of her goals or dreams. When she came to the realization that she MUST rely on others, a new journey began. In this episode of Happy Black Woman Natasha shares her journey of overcoming that limiting belief and how asking for help is essential to business and the sales process. You won’t want to miss this helpful conversation.
