We create content.
We build funnels.
We set up systems.
We write marketing and business plans.
But do you know how to create curiosity and become known?
Curiosity is a soft skill that most people miss.
Exceptional communicators and sales pros don’t focus on stuffy scripts.
No one needs more jargon.
We crave intrigue and desire.
Gary Vaynerchuk agrees.
When you post something that grabs (and keeps) someone's attention, you've intrigued them.
They want to know more.
You get them:
Thinking (not confused)
Curiosity moves conversations forward.
You planted the seed.
They look at your website or Insta profile.
Maybe they subscribe to your newsletter.
You get points if they share your post.
You create a buzz around you and your brand.
This happens when you make people curious.
It rarely happens when you ask "open-ended questions” and grovel hoping you'll close a prospect.

In elementary school, most of the girls I knew were told they “talk too much in class.”
Both of my sisters got those lovely comments on their report cards from time to time.
I was a roamer.
I didn’t talk all that much; I wanted out. Out of whatever classroom I was in.
I have insatiable curiosity.
I saw myself as “life’s little observer.”
I always sensed that something interesting was happening…somewhere else.
