On today’s episode, I want to talk to you about not being there to pitch. This is a phrase I used recently on a call, and I want to share with you the power that can happen when you just show up to help rather than trying to pitch. This applies to Realtors, the podcast community, as well as with working with clients. So, this call was to promote a book some friends had just launched and I was there to help answer questions in the chat, google links, etc. After a while, my friend asked me to talk about my podcast because there were 30 or 40 Realtors listening on the call. I replied that I wasnât there to pitch, that they didnât have to give me that opportunity, but they said that they knew it would help those Realtors that were listening, and they knew that was how I grew my membership. I appreciated that amazing opportunity, but I was just there to support and serve in any way that I could. If you show up trying to pitch, people will see through that and just be bothered that you’re using their meeting to promote yourself. I showed up and answered questions in the chat to help people and I was just there to support. They called on me and gave me an awesome opportunity to talk about the podcastâand even if they wouldn’t have, thatâs not the point. Itâs just a reminder come from a heart and try to serve. I wasn’t there to pitchâthat should be your heart in everything that you do. I wasn’t there to pitch, I was just here to help, to build relationships, to pour into people. Youâll have an opportunity to hear these friends and learn about their book in a future podcast, but for today I really hope you can think about seeking to serve with no expectation of pitching or selling what you’re doing in your business and use this idea to create more success.
