Do you consider yourself an introvert?
Oh boy…if there was a way I could sell my farm products without having to talk with customers all day then heck yes, I would!!
You and I just want to farm or work in the garden, we don’t want to have to sell our stuff and interact with people – let’s be honest…nobody really enjoys doing that after a 10 hour day of milking cows and pulling weeds.
The truth is, if we’re going to run profitable small farms selling direct-to-consumer, we HAVE to interact with people; there’s no way around it.
But what do you do when you’re not feeling very confident about selling? How do you handle that overwhelming pressure to say the RIGHT thing to customers? How do you get over that fear of putting yourself out there & getting in front of people to market your products?
I hosted a live video on just this topic and there I give you 3 tips on how to build up that muscle that makes engaging with customers easier.
