Let's just be brutally honest for a minute, ok?
Why is it that we don't smell our own body odor or bad breath? See our own mess on our floors? Why don't we pick up our clutter but instead just step over it? Why can trash pour out and over a bathroom bin and an entire household of people will just keep piling on top instead of taking it out?
And yet, if we go by another person who is, let's say, in need of some "refreshing" we notice the odor right away! We enter a publi
Let's face it. We're all busy. We only have so many hours in a day and no one gets any extra! It doesn't matter if you have 10 kids or none, work from home or out of the house, are single or married. We all get 24 hours-to work, sleep, eat and play! So...how do some people seem to accomplish so much? And some? So very little. Join me for 5 minutes in my bathroom, and I'll share one of my secrets to making the most of every day and going to bed at night satisfied with that day
Every time you forget to collect contact information from a customer-you just made a choice.
Each time you let another day pass and don't mail that package, return that email, phone call or message-you just made a choice.
When you neglect to follow up and show appreciation and inquire if your customer is satisfied-you just made a choice. You do have a choice! You can be in the 95% of sales people who make promises they often don't keep, don't put the effort in to follow u
No rush and no pressure, but when you are ready.
Ask yourself this question: "What is holding me back?" Ask yourself when you are alone. When you are ready to be honest with your answer. Ask yourself when you have finally gotten to that point where you are almost shouting in your own head, "ENOUGH! Enough is enough! I am ready to do this!" Whatever your "this" is? Doesn't matter. It matters to you! But it doesn't matter if your "this" is different than my "this".
We all hav
When most people come to a dead end, with a cross road, and are faced with the choice of turning left or right, they make a choice. Even if they hesitate momentarily, they can clearly see that standing still and going straight are not options. They might evaluate, try to see (or even guess!) whether turning left or right is the better choice. But eventually turn they will. Coming to this cross road might make them uncomfortable. For some? Being faced with that choice? Might
I get it...you have bills to pay, children to feed, vacations to take and more! Money might not buy happiness, but it sure buys a lot of things we need to live and things we want and things we think we can only dream about that might make us happy! But here's the problem. When we focus on the money, and spend so much time and energy just trying to keep our head above water earning it, we lose all the joy in our journey. We are no longer chasing a rabbit of happiness..but one
How many times have you read a book, listened to a training or overheard a conversation that included something along the lines of: "Gotta look out for #1, no one else is going to!"
This "me first" attitude is, sadly, quite prevalent in the direct sales world. I have heard countless times from consultants, in various companies, who had been hurt by another representative trampling over them on their way to trying to reach the top first! If they only knew that there is a mu
Let's face it...owning your own business, even working from home, is much harder then we thought! Well, it is if you plan to reach your goals and make some dreams come true! What started out for many of us as a discount on a great product we love, has turned into a family business! The earning potential in a direct selling company is amazing! And that's the great news! But, the not so great news is that we all face obstacles. And when difficulty comes, it's not always easy
