Hey. Welcome back to another episode of Sell Without Selling. I am your host, Stacey O’Byrne and I believe that learning the art and the science of how to sell without selling is the only way to achieve high six and seven figure success.

I am really excited to get into today’s episode. Really quick, if you are a business owner, entrepreneur, or sales professional, and you haven’t hit the level of success that you wanted or needed, or if you’re stuck and needing a pivot in your success, or maybe you just want more and you understand the importance of having a coach to help identify the blind spots, increase accountability, and help with success strategies to take you, your business, your income, and your success to the next level. If this sounds like something for you, then head over to There is a quick application there that will lead to  a personal phone call with me to see if we are a great fit for each other. Alright, let’s do this.

You know, when I hear the word, “Jumpstart,” the hair on the back of my neck stands up.  Because reality is this – success is a process. Success is a journey. However you define it. Maybe it has an end result. Maybe it has an end game. Maybe it’s a continual moving target. Maybe you’re constantly moving toward something. Either way, doesn’t matter if it’s got an end target or if it’s this ever-evolving, changing, moving definition. Reality is there’s very key factors necessary to achieve and pursue success. That’s consistency, and it’s a culmination of effort, knowledge, development, learnings, embracing failures – only by learning from them, and building relationships, serving, making an impact, constantly improving yourself. I can go on and on. The list is endless. But when I hear jumpstart, I hear quick fix. I hear magic pill. I hear unrealistic expectations. All of which can backfire, create random inconsistent, if any, results. All of which burn people out, demotivate people, waste resources: time, money, relationships. Let’s get real. When you have clarity on what it is you desire to achieve. When you have clarity, specificity on your end game, your goals, your desires. When you have that, then you know what it is you get to do to get that end result – whatever that is for you.

Different people define success differently, and there is no right and there is no wrong, and there is zero judgment either way. There’s so many myths about jumpstarting your success, and there’s so many myths out there that inhibit the pursuit of success. So I wanted to talk about a few.
