Mindset Shifts To Land Bigger Clients With Melinda Chen

This is a really fun Off the Charts podcast episode – because we get to hear from Melinda Chen, and it’s all about the mindset shifts needed to land bigger clients for your business.

Melinda Chen has been in corporate sales for 15 years… but it wasn’t something that she was really good at, at first. In fact, she really struggled to make any sales at all. And even though she invested time and energy into making more and more sales calls, she ended up feeling frustrated and confused. Melinda found that she was uncomfortable with the idea of pitching to other corporate reps, and just wanted to get off the phone as quickly as possible.

She shares how this lack of confidence really came to the forefront during a pivotal conversation with an executive… who noticed that she was only contacting smaller clients.

So he asked “Well, how are you ever going to be able to sell to big clients if you’re surrounding yourself with small clients?”

This simple question began the mindset shift that shaped the future success of Melinda’s career. Melinda discovered that it took exactly the same amount of time to close a big sale as it did to close a little one… and with that realization, her career took off.

From there, you’ll hear how Melinda continued to grow, to the very top of her field. Listen in to hear her wisdom on the sales process – which is such an important area to our lives as entrepreneurs!
