“What do YOU know about ____________? You’re a ________________.”
(Fill in the blanks with your product category and current profession.)
Likely that’s a comment you heard, at least during your first year with your current company.
Sometimes inexperience is not an issue: when there’s already trust in the relationship, such as approaching some friends and family when launching your business.
And sometimes it hurts: People looking for a way to “shut you down” because they can’t imagine you changing course to a different career. Business owners who want you to work with your company for months or years before they buy.
But a true professional has a different approach.
Check out Seth Godin’s angle and see if you agree.
I think he nailed it.

Nearly every company has individual replicated retail sites for their distributors.
When I bring a new person into my team, I ask them if they have 15 minutes.
Usually they respond, Yes.
I give them a task: go to their replicated web site, upload a head shot of them (take a selfie now if you need to!), and fill out any information their site needs to post, including writing a reasonable sentence or two in the “About Me” section.
If they get stuck, I tell them to fill in the blanks: “I like [the product or service] because [a fun or inspiring experience they had with it].”
A one-sentence “About me” is fine. And so is a selfie taken in that moment.
Starting with those blanks filled is more imporant than waiting for the perfect headshot photoshoot or letting perfectionism get in the way of filling in the blanks.
If a distributor has been in business for more than 24 hours, I’m negatively impressed if their replicated web site shows me a grey-square and announces “A valued distributor.” It’s the same effect of leaving the windows covered on your bricks-and-mortar storefront… you’re signalling to the world that you are “not open for business yet.”
Sometimes it’s easier to refine than to aim for a polished first.
