There’s a saying in the startup world that goes, “Hustle until your idols become your rivals.”
The meaning is simple: work so hard that you reach the level of those you once looked up to.
But let’s be honest – that sounds douchey AF, right?
So, because I’m not a douchebag, I propose a new saying: “Hustle until your idols become your peers.”
This saying means so much to me because I’ve hit a huge milestone that feels like my definition of success: I’ve been invited to join the Women Sales Pros, a group of 50 women sales leaders.
This is such a Universe Moment that I just had to share it – check out the journey below. Maybe it will inspire you.
You might already know that I’ve never been a salesperson, and I’m completely self-taught when it comes to selling.
When I realized I had to learn how to get clients or my business would fail, I dove in to teaching myself. Over several years I read 65 books, tested every strategy with my own clients, and created a personal selling methodology that works and feels comfortable.
Those books I read? Many of them were written by the women of Women Sales Pros.
The incredible Jill Konrath, Joanne Black, Sharon Drew Morgen, and others… titans of selling.
They taught me skills I wove into my selling methodology, and ones I still use. Those are the skills that led me to start the business I run today, where I teach other women business owners how to get clients.
And it’s this work that caught the attention of the women of the Women Sales Pros. A long journey comes full circle.
So I’m honored to join the group. I hope I can provide as much value to them as they have provided me.
Hustle until your idols become your peers… and they will.
