006 | Jayla Siciliano Tells Us Why You Should Take Emotion Out of the Sales Process

Welcome to today’s episode! I’m excited to introduce you to Jayla Siciliano, the creator of Bon Affair. In today’s episode Jayla shares her journey with us from starting out, struggling to find a bottle distributor that would work with her, to living out of a hotel in Michigan for 3 weeks, to finally finding her groove and focusing on ONE big retailer and the online market.

Believe it or not, the number one thing you will hear most often as an entrepreneur is NO. You’ve probably tried to avoid hearing NO, as much as possible, and it may even make you feel like a failure. But, Jayla tells our listeners that NO is just part of the process and that you need to quickly learn to remove emotion from the process.

Jayla also discussed how important building relationships is in business. She believes it is one of the best ways to get connected to people you wouldn't’ have met otherwise, and to get people to do favors for you.

Has an investor, or possibly a customer left you feeling heartbroken because they turned down your service or product? Jayla has you covered in this episode!
