Most direct sales consultants have either just attended, or are preparing to attend their National Conferences.
To me, the Manager meetings, National Conference, and Leadership Conference that my company hosted each year always felt like going to a family reunion.
I connected with my friends from all over the country, got to spend time with my very best friends (we usually roomed together – and never got much sleep because we stayed up all night talking!), and got to meet and connect in-person with new consultants in my organization.
We always had so much fun, got to see all of the new products in-person (always a big help), and there was always great training – both from consultants in the field and from an outside speaker.
Always a great weekend!!
But here’s the bad news.
Most consultants go home from conference and don’t do anything with the info that they learned.
So a year from now – they’ll attend conference – again – but their life won’t be much different than it is now.
But then there are those rare individuals. Those who go to conference, get inspired, and take from that experience to build their business, so they can change their lives.
I was one of those.
As I’ve shared, my first couple years in the business were a disaster.
But then I went to my company’s National Conference. I watched a woman, who at the time, drove me a little bonkers, receiving awards and earning monthly commissions that were higher than what I was earning as an engineer, and I said to myself, “If she can do that, I can do it…and I can do it even bigger and better!”
I made the decision, right there at that conference, that I was going to go home and quit my job to build my business full time.
Now I’m not suggesting that you turn in your notice today – in fact, that absolutely WOULD NOT be my advice. (I quit my job way too soon!!)
But what I am suggesting is that once the excitement wears off, you sit down and ask yourself, “What am I going to do differently – starting TODAY – in order to change my life, using my direct sales business as the tool?”
If your business has not been growing steadily and consistently – then something has to change.
So here’s my big question to you:
What are you going to do differently to get your business expanding immediately?
I’d love for you to share it in the comments below…that way others can learn from you, too!
