Feeler Entrepreneur

This sales professional/entrepreneur is all about how things make them feel and how they make others feel. They need to continually do a gut check, they need to feel the ideas and solutions both physically and emotionally before taking action. This really slows them down and they also struggle with feeling too “salesy”.

They’re the ones who talk to customers with a slower and rhythmic pace because they want to ensure the people they are communicating with feel good through their conversations. They rarely put a lot of thought into things and rely very heavily on their gut instinct and how things make them feel , how things feel to them and how they make others feel.

They need clients referred to them because approaching people from a sales capacity shuts them down. They are afraid to upset people and are very uncomfortable with the feeling of having to sell.
