How Ron Nichols Overcame his Fear of Selling

As most of you have heard, we have a huge, free, online event coming up on 10.10.10 just for photographers.

One of our featured speakers is Ron Nichols. Many of you may know Ron as the past president of Professional Photographers of America. Ron is a genius when it comes to studio sales processes, yet it wasn’t always that way. We asked Ron how he overcame his fear of selling. You may be surprised at his answer.

Ron:  I overcame my fear of selling when I realized that I was a professional and I deserved to drive the same types of cars, send my kid to the good schools and enjoy the fruits of life just like the doctors, lawyers and professional’s buying my images.

I love Ron’s answer. Sometimes we think we don’t deserve what our clients have, maybe because we’re just starting out, maybe because we’re only part time. Or maybe because we love what we do so much it just doesn’t seem fair to get paid so much for doing it. But that’s simply not the case.
