This episode is all about selling! This episode will help clarify why selling is actually a good thing. Tracey Thompson is the creator of the Conscious Conversations That Convert system. She is committed to helping conscious entrepreneurs have powerful, authentic conversations that easily convert. We discuss how you sell yourself every day, and that selling your services and products is just as important.

The Mission Log:

  • [03:48] - Tracey starts things off by telling us a little bit about herself. She explains how a frightening cancer diagnosis changed her whole world and brought her to realize that everything she was doing was out of alignment.
  • [08:08] - What was Tracey’s journey like after her conversation with God? In her answer, she explains the importance of learning to love yourself.
  • [09:53] - Tracey talks about what she did to love herself more.
  • [11:38] - This big change and decision to let people help wasn’t easy for Tracey at first, she explains.
  • [12:42] - What are some mindset tips and tools that Tracey used to help her create that shift?
  • [14:54] - Tracey explains what she means by “Conscious Conversations that Convert.” She gives some context for the conversion piece of that concept.
  • [17:20] - The key to doing this in a way that is gentle rather than salesy is asking powerful questions. She then explains the way she keeps herself from giving too much advice.
  • [20:16] - Tracey offers some more “seduction” techniques.
  • [25:44] - We hear about the reaction that people tend to have once they’ve made the discovery of what they need to be working on.
  • [27:35] - What’s more important: to stretch the gap of how painful it is to not have what they want to have, or to show them a compelling future?
  • [29:17] - Tracey talks about the biggest problem her service-provider clients face: the difficulty of selling a service that is your own. She then goes on to explain how to overcome this problem.
  • [32:30] - How do you know what you’re worth?
  • [34:23] - Tracey discusses the art and science of packaging. She then moves to talk about the current, ongoing shift from the information age into the transformation age.
  • [38:58] - We hear Tracey’s thoughts on dealing with rejection and maintaining your positive energy. She emphasizes the importance of making sure that service comes first.
  • [44:36] - Tracey shares a recent success story of a client who was very open to her coaching and saw dramatic results. These professional results were significant enough that they ultimately led to a wedding proposal!
  • [52:55] - Tracey offers some beautiful words of wisdom and encouragement for listeners. She also clarifies that conscious conversations aren’t just for sales.
  • [54:17] - How can people connect with Tracey and her tribe?

Your Pre-Flight Checklist:

  1. Ask myself: if I were diagnosed with cancer, how would my priorities shift and how would I want to spend my life? Use the answer to start changing my life in that direction.
  2. Work toward a state of self-love. Being enough comes from within, not without, so stop looking for external validation.
  3. Assess what slowing down would mean for me. Make a conscious daily effort to slow down in to avoid burnout.

Your Pre-Flight Checklist:

  1. Differentiate between my ego self and my essence self. In essence, I am God, I have no limitations, and we are all one.
  2. Phrase and observe my experiences as exactly that: experiences. “I experience anger,” not “I am angry.”
  3. Remember that the gift of awakening comes to different people in different ways. I don’t need to suffer to become closer to God.

  1. For the next two weeks, wake up 30 minutes to an hour early every day and set aside the extra time for meditation.
  2. If you aren’t familiar with meditating, sit still and pay attention to your breath. See how long you can stay focused, and practice doing it for longer.
  3. To obtain clarity on something specific, meditate on that particular topic. You may be surprised by how much clearer the subject becomes after meditation.
