sevenAre you at a point where you want to be your own boss? Plenty of people are going this route now a days and starting your own business can be the perfect way to allow you to gain control over your life while providing the freedom you desire. I’ve been involved in the direct sales industry for a couple of years now. Let me tell you when the economy was strong it was hard to talk to people about direct sales or network marketing when their mutual funds were going up by 20% per year. Now things have turned around. Did you know in the most recent decade the stock market actually lost money? Most jobs are cutting back or paying their employees less and with investments falling short these days many are turning to the direct sales industry as an answer for their future security. With so many people eager to enter the direct sales market the question that often comes up is how do you succeed in a brand new field to which you have no working knowledge or experience. If this is your situation and you are in a place where you simply need answers please allow me to share with you a bit of information. If you desire to get ahead in today’s market, the time has arrived for you to to open your mind and take seriously this new opportunity for the future. Look around, there are plenty of people just like you who are searching for answers and different ways to find true long-term financial security.  The following are some more tips to help you on your way:

1. Have a positive attitude and be enthusiastic

See the positive in people. Develop a habit that looking for the positive and expect people to treat you in a positive way as well. Enthusiasm generates its own energy. People desire to be around positive people with a positive attitude and you will attract others who are like you.

2. Define your goals and make them realistic and attainable.

What do you desire to accomplish? Do you want a new car, home, or save for your children’s education. You can have whatever you desire, but you must desire it enough to do the things that have to be done to get it. Write your goals down on paper, for If  they are not written they are nothing more than a wish. Set a date for reaching your goal and make it fun.  If you fall a bit short of your goal, that’s Ok change your date and keep moving forward.

3. Plan your time and be organized 

An agenda is important for your discipline as a successful entrepreneur.   A schedule keeps you on task and structured which is very necessary when you are your own boss. It assures that the necessary things get done on time when you have a plan. Have a place where you can work in your house or office in an organized and efficient manner without interruptions.

4. Create a to do list

Write a list on paper or in a notebook (I have a collection of them LOL) of what needs to be done the following day. This simple step will help you with organization. Do not make the lists so long that they are overwhelming.  As each task is finished, cross it off your list. Also, have a small notebook which you should have on you at all times to mark things down. Use a calendar for listing appointments, potential prospects to speak with, clients and referrals. Also, have it easily accessible.

5. Expect to hear No as an answer.

Remember that rejection is part of the business and will serve as the main challenge when you are prospecting for your clients and business builders. You should not take ‘no’s’ personally, the more ‘no’s’ you get the better you are doing because you are working your business.  The no’s will ultimately become a resounding ‘yes’ after ‘yes’ in time. You must stay patient. Every no that you receive gets you closer to a yes. Also remember that “no” does not necessarily mean “no.” Often a “no” is simply the person needs more time to think and they may be interested later (could be a year later) as they are just not ready now.

6. Never forget or be afraid of this key word – ASK

Ask for appointments, the sale and for referrals.  If you desire someone to host a party or an event then ask.  If you desire to close the sale, then ask are you ready to purchase what I have to offer you.  All someone can say is Yes or No.  If it is a yes, then smile you and you will know what to do.  If the response does turn out to be a no, then that’s ok. Simply move forward and continue to ask someone else. The more people you speak with the better you will do in the direct sales business. You must do income producing actions, yet it’s one of the hardest things to do in your business.

7. Be an Efficient Money Manager.

Being part of the direct sales company is an exciting business and can make you some great money. When you work your business consistently and put in the effort it can easily turn from part time to a full time income before you know it. Make sure to open a separate bank account and deposit all of your money from sales from clients into a checking account that you set up.  Your transactions are on the bank statement which is a great record of your business activity that can be verified by your canceled checks. Keep your record keeping simple, accurate and don’t fall behind. Also you should create spreadsheets that track your sales and business expenses while keeping your receipts. You also have the benefits of certain tax write offs (Speak to your accountant).

If you treat your direct sales business like you are a CEO in the corporate world you will be surprised how a second income gives you opportunities to do things that you were unable to do before. Freedom, flexibility, time with your family, and the ability to help other people is a gift that you will cherish for a lifetime.  Being debt free and accumulating savings for retirements are good long-term goals and can be easily achieved in the direct sales industry. If you like people, are you willing to be disciplined and put in time to learn how to be your own boss then you are ready to be a consultant in direct sales. Keep in mind the pointers I’ve listed above and there will be no stopping you as you build a team and create the secure flexible lifestyle that you were looking for. What a great way to keep your dreams alive! Create an excellent week ~Bonnie
