Before anyone says "if your socially anxious you CANT become a superstar salesperson" let me tell you my story...
1. Started working in a call centre at the age of 18. Was horrendous. Had no confidence, was scared of picking up the phone and was literally petrified all the time. I was weak and timid. I couldnt hold a conversation. No one liked me. I felt like I was invisible.
2. Becuuse I was so crap I ended up getting fired.
3. Started a job in b2b sales for a legal firm. Ihad a very supportive manager who really believed in me and in the end I became the highest performing and longest serving salesperson in the companys history eventually being promoted to director and having my own office.
4. I now work in ad sales (only started about 2 months ago) and have had some pretty remarkable achievments at this new place however I feel like my social anxiety is kicking in again and my self confidence is at an all time low. Im starting to get tounge tied more and more often. How can I regain my confidence and smash my targets like I used to?
Thanks a millon.
