What sort of energy are you putting out there? What sort of energy do you bring to your consults with clients and to networking events? What sort of energy do you have on social media outlets such as twitter and facebook? I’m asking these questions today because I want you to reflect on something completely intangible that affects your relationship-building with people and sales: YOUR ENERGY.
I’ve seen THIS happen to perfectly good people:
… The season moves along swimmingly. Calls are coming in. Sales are happening. Things are AWESOME for the wedding pro.
… Things get SUPER busy and the wedding pro gets bogged down in WORK, work, wooooork.
… The wedding pro faces burnout and is depleted. It shows.
… The wedding pro doesn’t bring her A-Game to the table. It’s her C-Game. The client is not enchanted. The client is a little bummed.
… The wedding pro attends networking events and just shuffles through the event out of obligation.
… The wedding pro talks about exhaustion and depletion and difficult clients on facebook and Twitter.
This wedding pro is putting out negative energy. And, it’s affecting her business.
We ALL go through this. (And if you haven’t, count your blessings!) Being conscious of our “negative energy level” is critical to ensuring that it doesn’t get the best of us. The energy that we put out there is difficult to mask. When we are tired and bummed and annoyed and exhausted it shows. But managing your energy is important to being successful. No one wants to do business with Debbie Downer.
Listen – we all have bad days. This isn’t about wearing a happy Stepford Wife mask all day. But, it’s about being aware of the energy we put out there. Negativity breeds negativity. And this could be having a very negative impact on your business.
Have you experienced this? Have you seen the impact on your business?
