3 Key Points:
- When you’re connected to your purpose, it’s irrelevant what you’re doing. Those are just vehicles.
- By being vulnerable, you are actually asking for help. When you ask for help, people are naturally good and they want to help you out.
- The best sales feature you have is to be you. Not something you think you should be.
[04:24] Whatever it is you’re selling, there are so many salespeople out there selling the same stuff, it’s commoditized.
[05:54] If everything is commoditized, you have got to know what it is about you that is different.
[06:49] This is the best way for me to serve at this moment. But connected to that matters so much and that’s what we all have to do. We have to get connected to that.
[10:18] The world changes, you cannot see the world the same. Millennials are fantastic because they actually understand that life has to have meaning because they got rid of this nonsense,
that there’s a professional self and a personal self.
[11:09] You can either use what you have and bring that to your sales or you can deny what you have.
[13:47] The vulnerability, the authenticity, that’s what people connect to. In sales, this is what we all have to understand.
[14:17] Show up as a human being. That’s your best selling feature. Don’t be somebody else, be yourself.
[16:25] The thing you’re most terrified to say is the best thing you could say.
[17:07] It’s not about the right words, the right sentence, the right sales pitch. It is about being you in the most authentic raw, and sometimes unlikeable to some people.
[24:18] You are never broken, you’ve never been broken. You are a magnificent diamond, you may have been covered in a ton of crap.

Enjoy the show was with Dov Baron and let’s dive right in. Well, I am so excited to have you back on the show, Dov. Welcome.
Dov Baron [2:20]
Thank you. I’m delighted to be back, to dive deeper.
Christine Schlonski [2:24]
Yes, I loved our first interview. You’ve given so much value and advice and tips of how people can journal and how they can find out their treasures hidden in the darkest places. I would be really interested to know, what was the first thing you’ve ever sold in your life?
Dov Baron [2:47]
That’s a great question, the first thing I sold in my life? Wow, I, what was the first thing? I think I sold a lot when I was a kid. So I’m just trying to think what the first thing was. I know what the first thing, so this is a dark story. The first thing was not sold but can’t, I can’t my siblings. My baby sister had this, this speaking cell thing. It was this circular thing and you pull the string. It was a little pointer and it pointed to the cow and it mood and it points to the cat and it meowed, all those kinds of things. I’ve been smart ass kid worked out the sequence. It was Christmas time, we’d all got these coins. I actually had them playing roulette by putting the coins on where they think it was going to go next. But I worked it out where I was gonna go. I sold them on the game, on the idea of this game and then took all this spending money away and we can buy Turkish Delight. I guess that was the first thing I sold, is I sold them on the idea. It’s interesting because I think that is what sales really is. If you think about the world we live in, and particularly in the world of sales. Think about anything that’s not commoditized, everything is commoditized. You’re in insurance, what are you selling? You’re selling the same as every other insurance person. You selling real estate. Well, how many people are in real estate? Whatever it is you’re selling, there are so many salespeople out there selling the same stuff, it’s commoditized. What are you really selling? I’ll tell you what you’re selling. You’re selling certain things and there’s what they are. You’re selling a philosophy, an idea, a belief, and you’re selling yourself. So what is it? You look at those. What is the philosophy behind my Starbucks? The philosophy behind it is, according to Starbucks, the third place, the third-place philosophy, that’s what it’s called, you don’t know what it is, go look it up. If you ever saw the show, Cheers, it was that’s what third places based on. This is based on the English pub, which is when you go in everybody knows your name. That’s why they asked your name, not because they know who to serve it so they can remember you next time you come back. It’s actually a philosophy, the third-place you go, work and home and the first two and the third places where you hang out, which is the pub or in America is the coffee which we’ve now they’ve made around the world. There’s a philosophy there. We want to know what our philosophy is. What is the idea? The idea is that we get to hang out. That’s the idea. Okay, so the philosophy is, this is a comfortable place, we get to hang out. Maybe share ideas with other people writing screenplays, we’re never going to get screenplays written. But you know, let’s we’re sharing ideas and then you’re selling yourself. Because if everything is commoditized, you have got to know what it is about you that is different. That comes down to the work that I do, which is finding your purpose. You’ve heard of Simon Sinek’s book, Start with Why, it’s a great book, I recommend it highly to people. Start with why but don’t finish with why. There is a why, under your why. There is something deeper within you that your psychology is driving, when you get in touch with that, when you connect to that, then you are on purpose in your life in everything you do. Then when you show up. People want to know what it is about you. They see something in us like, something different here, what is it? And is that you’re so deeply connected to that part of you that desire so deeply to serve. The way you serve is you serve through your thing, whatever your thing is. Whether your thing is insurance or real estate or coffee, or phones or whatever it is. This is the best way for me to serve at this moment. But connected to that matters so much and that’s what we all have to do. We have to get connected to that. If the government suddenly bans public speaking, this is our go, “Okay, I can’t probably speak anymore.” “No.” “Okay. Well, I’ll do my focus.” “No, we’re banning that.” “Okay, all right, we’re banning that.” It takes away all of my platforms. Then it says, “Okay, you got to go work at McDonald’s.” “You go what?” “Yeah, you gotta go work at McDonald’s flipping burgers.” “Okay, so that’s what I have to do. I’m going to go flip burgers at McDonald’s.” What am I going to do when I get there? The answer is exactly what I do today. I’m just going to do it while flipping burgers because that’s my purpose. So when you’re connected to your purpose, it’s irrelevant what you’re doing. Those are just vehicles. The platform is a vehicle for me, my podcast is a vehicle for me, my writing, my books are all vehicles for me. Is flipping burgers the best vehicle? No, I don’t think so. But I can’t help but deliver what it is. When you get connected to the Y-L-V-O-Y. You can’t help but go, “This is one I’m on the planet. I’m here to serve that, to bring that to the world, to make a difference.” When you get connected to that, that’s when you’re really selling. You’re not selling anything other than. “I want to serve you.”
Christine Schlonski [8:14]
Yeah, I love that. I developed the sales power formula and power. Every letter stands for something and the W for the Why were also encourage people to go deeper. Because often they say, “Well, I do it like the kids are my reason?” That’s just to surface, there are so many more layers to go to. I love that conversation. Because you will find something deep within that really gives you the drive. That really makes you jump out of bed each and every morning. It usually has not to do with, “I do it for my family or my pets or my parents. It’s so much” —
Dov Baron [8:56]
No, you’re right, it’s so much deeper. But most people don’t have the. It’s so much easier to be surface, it’s so much easier to just say, “Well, you know, it’s this”, and that’s fine. I’m not here to judge you if that’s what you want to do, that’s fine. But if you want to spring out of bed every morning, genuinely and you need to go deeper. I know I could be more, I could be the motivated guy for years before I felt I could be motivated, but motivated and inspired a vastly different. Motivated is a psyche, you talk yourself into it. “Okay, let’s go, let’s rara.” Okay, and I could do that, I was good at it. I could do it with others. But that’s not the same as being inspired. Inspired is, “This is a shitty day, everything’s gone wrong. I’m full of self-doubt. But all I know is I’m here to serve.” So I just got to get up and serve. I gotta get up and serve. I don’t have an option in that. There’s no motivation in it. It’s what I’m here to do. It says native to me as breathing. It’s the nature of who I am. So I have to do that. This is not even about, “Rah, rah. Okay”, and then when you when you’re coming from that place, everything shifts. The world changes, you cannot see the world the same.
Christine Schlonski [10:22]
Hmm. Yeah, I just love that when you understand that there’s something bigger than yourself.
Dov Baron [10:30]
And that’s what we all want.
Christine Schlonski [10:32]
Dov Baron [10:32]
I mean, when we look at millennials, and they say, what are the number one thing they want from their work? They want meaningful work? Well, what does that mean? It means they want to be part of something that is bigger than themselves. Good for them, it’s one of the things I love about millennials. When people complain about millennials, shut up, Millennials are awesome. Millennials are fantastic because they actually understand that life has to have meaning because they got rid of this nonsense, that there’s a professional self and a personal self. No, there’s not, if there is you’re a big fat fraud. That’s all there is to it. The truth of the matter is, there’s you. You can either use what you have and bring that to your sales or you can deny what you have. Then you’re a big fat fraud, and people will see through you. Particularly if they are under the age of 39 years old, which is the upper age of a millennial. If they’re over that age, you might stand a better chance. But if you’re dealing with anybody between 19 and 39, they are going to see through your bul***** so quickly. It’s one of the things I love about millennials, they have bul***** detectors. They know when you’re fake. You might as well just show up. In a sales line, for instance, one of the things I would do if you’re selling to millennials, and you’ll nervous. Here’s my, let me give you a one-piece, one jewel for your sales line. Are you ready? You’re selling to millennials, and you go, “I’m really nervous about selling to these millennials, they are tech people and they know what they’re doing and they’re very insightful, blah, blah, blah. I’m kind of really nervous about it.” I said, “Okay, here’s my best sales line to them”, and they go, “What is it?” “Are you ready? You need to write it down.” “Okay”. “Hi, I’m really nervous about talking to you.” They go, “Why are you nervous?” “No, no, no, that’s not what I’m saying to you. That’s what you need to say to a millennial.” And they go, “Oh, why would I do that?” Because they appreciate vulnerability. They want authenticity, they like real. If you show up with all the puff, and puffed out chest and pretending that you know it all they will see through you like glass, just own the truth. They’ll go, they will become compassionate immediately and go, “Oh, let me help you out.” By being vulnerable, you are actually asking for help. When you ask for help. People are naturally good. That’s the wonderful thing about people, generally speaking, people are good and they want to help you out. If they don’t, well, then you probably don’t know do business in America, because they’re kind of d***** . You want to do business with good people. Just show up and go, “You know what? I’m kind of fumbling my way through here. Would you be willing to help me?” When I teach people to be speakers, one of the first things I say is, “If you’re the person who gets really nervous on stage, I’ve been speaking 35 years.” Very often, not all the time but very often I walk out on stage and just go, “Need a moment here”, and there’s look at the audience and I go, “Do you want to know why I need a moment? Because after 35 years, I still get nervous.” Immediately the audience’s [sigh]. They relax. Okay, as opposed to putting all their expectations on me, then do I knock it out of the park? Absolutely, every time, but it’s the ownership, the vulnerability, the authenticity that people connect to. In sales, this is what we all have to understand. That’s what people connect to. They connect to the vulnerability, to the authenticity, not to your bul***** sales line. They don’t care about that. “Oh, well, you know, why don’t you just hold it and see how it feels.” We’ve all done the puppy dog sale. We all know that line, right? We’ve all got the sales techniques. I know. I used to teach them in the late 90s. But nobody cares anymore. We care about his people. So show up as a human being. That’s your best selling feature.
Christine Schlonski [14:21]
Yeah, like be really interested in creating a relationship.
Dov Baron [14:25]
That’s it. It’s that simple. That’s what people, this what people get over complicated with it. Don’t be somebody else, be yourself. You may have noticed, as you’re listening to this that I swore, “Oh my goodness”, I don’t swear for effect. People are now swearing because they heard Gary Vaynerchuk swearing, and the thing is that it’s the cool thing to do. I don’t swear, because of Gary V. I’ve always sworn. It’s part of who I am. Don’t start swearing, if it’s not who you are. But don’t be not who you are, if you like just for you. Because then people get to assess you. Your job is to — So let me just tell you about sales simply. It’s the same in leadership, your job is to get people off the fence, that’s it. Meaning, I don’t like you. There are people watching, listen to this, “I really don’t like this Dob Baron guy.” Fantastic. Turn it off. Come back to the next show. Christine has marvelous guests. You’ll love the next one or the last one. Go listen to Anne, go listen to Bob, go listen to Mark, you might love them. That’s great. Maybe I’m not for everybody. I get that. That’s okay. Maybe I’ve rattled your cage. That’s okay. Many people who don’t like me initially fall in love with me later, because they realize it was their own stuff that was annoying. I’m not here to persuade you to like me or dislike me, but I am going to be me. The best sales feature you have is to be you. Not something you think you should be. People say, “Be yourself”, and it’s such a nonsense cliche. Because most of us, this is why I said the beginning, “You can’t lead others until you lead yourself.” So what does that mean? It means you got to do that work. So when people say, “Be yourself”, that’s the best sales line you’ve got. Yeah, but, “Who am I?”, is the question. You can’t do that until you look into that dark place until you look at those things you’ve not been willing to look at. But when you do that, you find amazing diamonds. In fact, I will give you a clue. The thing you’re most terrified to say is the best thing you could say. There’s a person behind you as we speak on the shelf there with a cover, Anne. I taught Anne on how to be a speaker and she stood in front of the audience as we were training her and I said, “Tell the truth”, and she just stood there with a microphone shaking in her hand, tears flooding down her face because she’d never told the truth. She may have even told you this on the show. She eventually just told the truth and everybody was like, “Wow.” That’s how she now leads and coaches and does what she does. You have to come to that. It’s not about the right words, the right sentence, the right sales pitch. It is about being you in the most authentic, raw, and sometimes unlikeable to some people. Your job is to get them off the fence.
Christine Schlonski [17:20]
Yeah, by the way, was the beautiful episode was Anne on episode 042 and 043. If you want to tune in. What I would love to know, where or how did you find out that it was okay to be you and it was okay that others weren’t okay with it?
Dov Baron [17:44]
By accident, not because I was a genius. But because I was a numbnuts. Many, many years ago, before I started speaking, I owned businesses in three continents. I have a business in Australia, and one of my clients in that business owns the national menswear company. He was a good friend of mine, and he would come in and we would chat. We have this wonderful philosophical conversation. One day he came in. Now, remember, this is 1984. He came in and he said, “I want you to come to speak to my national managers, sales managers.” I’m like, “Speak about what?” Like I had never spoken. He’s like, “You can speak about whatever you want.” I’m like, “Steve, I’m not a speaker.” He talked me into it and I said, “How long do I have to talk for?” He goes, “An hour”, and I was like, “Whoa, no.” He finally talked me into 20 minutes or half an hour, something like that. Honestly, I was so nervous about doing this, hours of warm-up. But it was like, then in those days, it was terrifying as an idea. I didn’t know what I was supposed to talk about. He said I could speak about anything I wanted. I said, “Okay”, and he said, “But I have one condition.” Now again, this is 1985. Now what you should know is Steve on the national menswear company, he used to make my bespoke suits. I used to wear these beautiful 80’s suits, and he would make them for me, but when I wasn’t in those suits, I was dressing very casual, very casual. I’ve been a bodybuilder since I was 19. So at that point, I’m five years, six years into bodybuilding. When you’re in your early 20s, and you’re a bodybuilder, it’s important that everybody knows. I wore T-shirts that were way too small and tight ripped jeans, my muscles are bulging everywhere because I was in my 20s. In those days, my head was down to my chest, and my hair’s naturally black and ringlet curls. I’ve got this big bushy ringlet curls hair, earrings that you can swing parrots off with those big loops. My head wasn’t even in a ponytail on that day. He’s there and I’m in ripped. I mean, a tight t-shirt, ripped jeans, my big earrings on my hair’s wild. He says, “The only, only thing I want from you is that you turn up looking exactly like this.” I go, “What do you mean?” He goes, “That’s my only condition. You must look exactly as you are today.” I go, “Well, can I put my hair in a ponytail?” He goes, “No.” I go, “Can I wear one of my suits. You make my suits.” He goes, “No, I want you to look just like this. That’s my only condition.” I’m like, “This is crazy. Okay, fine.” So I arrived at the meeting as scheduled. I put my head in the door. It’s a long boardroom. All the managers sitting down, there’s a long boardroom and they’re in 80’s suits, their buttoned uptight. They all look like Gordon Gekko from Wall Street. This wild man puts these head in the door with the crazy hair and the big earrings. They’re all like this, they’re looking at me while Steve is front talking. They’re all like this. They’re all nodding their head to the side as if to say, “Get out. We call it England, the bugger off the node. Bugger off, you’re in the wrong place.” But I just smiled and waited. Then Steve said, “Please welcome our speaker, Dov Baron”, and I came out and clunk the jaws, all hit the desk and they’re looking at me. This is the early 80s in Australia when there was a lot of issues with racism, particularly around the native Australians, the Aboriginal people. I said, “Put your hand up if you’re racist. Come on, put your hand up if you’re racist.” Of course, nobody put their hand up. I said, “Okay, fair enough. Put your hand up if you were judged somebody by the color of their skin, or the way they would look in any way, shape, or form”, nobody put the hand up. I leaned in and I said, “You’re a bunch of freakin liars. Every single one of you decided who I was and the value I had and you judge me, by the way I looked. You decided how intelligent I was, how much money I had, and whether I was your customer, and you are dead wrong. See, the reason I’m here is because Steve is my client, and I’m your client. Steve makes my suits. And he was smart enough to see me. Outside of the way I look today.” I looked over at Steve and honestly, I thought about the shift I made a terrible mistake. I didn’t because I didn’t know what I was doing. I looked over Steve and he’s got a big grin. Because he obviously was much smarter than me and he understood. He was delighted with what I’d said. I was completely totally and absolutely authentic and it worked. Now, if the story ended there, I would be a hero. But I’m not a hero. I’m a schmuck. What I mean by that is this, about, still, Steve came and told me was delighted. It was fantastic. About two, three weeks later, he came back to me, he said, “Alistair would like you to speak for his company.” Alistair owns a national clothing company as well. A different kind, but you know, he said, “He’d let you speak to.” I was like, “Oh, now I got the budget. I’m in. Okay, yeah, I’ll do it. No problem.” But I don’t know anything about speaking. So what I do, I go in and research, I look at speakers. I see Zig Ziegler and Jim Rohn and all the old school speaker. They all wear a uniform, the uniform is blue suit, white shirt, red tie, black paint and leather shoes, and short hair, clean-shaven or a mustache. What do I do? I got a blue suit, white shirt, red tie, Peyton leather shoes, cut my hair off and have this ugly ass mustache that looks like a small animal is dyed on my top lip, horrible. Horrible that I could show you pictures of me. I looked older than I do now. It was a terrible picture. I looked so bad. I went and delivered the same presentation for Alistair and died. Because I was completely new and authentic. But you know, being a bit thick, it only took me about four years to work out what was wrong.
Christine Schlonski [23:45]
Our guest four.

Only four years. So by the way, if you’re thinking, “Oh, you keep screwing it up”, just take it from me, it’s not a big deal, keep going. It took me about four years to work out what it was, it was that simple. But I gave up my authenticity. This is the thing we have to understand. Your best selling feature is your authenticity, don’t change it, recognize it. There is beauty in you, magnificent you. Here’s what I want you to know from me, this is my message to you.
Dov Baron [24:18]
You are never broken, you’ve never been broken. You are a magnificent diamond, you may have been covered in a ton of crap. But that’s not who you are. Beneath that is the diamond of who you are. And that is what attracts people, that is what people are pulled to. Your job, as I said in the self-knowledge journey is to push away the crap and reveal the diamond. And you might believe the crap because it’s so thick and so heavy. And it’s been laid on by your mom and your dad and your siblings and your friends and your teachers and whoever else it was. But your job is to not believe that, your job is to know there’s a diamond in there and keep washing off the crap. And some days you’ll wash it off and people keep pouring more. You just keep washing off and remembering you don’t. Because that diamond is what will attract the right people to, with elegance and ease.
