Amazing day yesterday! We were given the gift of a full day of training with Darren Hardy, and one of the first things he mentioned to us is that this session is usually $5000 per person! What a truly amazing gift we were given by USANA Canada for the 20th Anniversary of the opening of the Canadian Market. It would be virtually impossible to share what I learned in one short blog post, so I’ll start with this:
Gratitude Tip: What is simple to do is not always EASY to do. And it’s also easy NOT to do it. When we talk about the actions and habits needed to create a successful business in direct sales, the how-to’s are actually quite simple. This is where gratitude lives, being grateful for a profession and business model that doesn’t require you to be a genius or to learn thousands of skills.
There are 6 things required for success in direct sales:
1.Use the products from the company (buy from your own store).
2. Share your experience with the products.
3. Share the business opportunity.
4. Help others get started.
5. Promote and attend events.
6. Daily personal development.
What Darren Hardy shared is similar to what I’ve learned from Go Pro: 7 Steps to Becoming a Network Marketing Professional by Eric Worre. It’s truly a simply business. Yet it’s not EASY. Why is that?
There are so many things that can get in our way of success and what I’ve found in my experience is that it’s never a lack of knowledge or skills, within a short time of starting a business and with a little bit of training most people can at least fumble there way through the skills by referring to the business tools provided by the company. The biggest challenge is all about the mindset.
If I could give all of my direct sales and USANA friends the key to success in 2016, it would be to spend more on personal development, in dollars and time, then you ever have before. That will lead to the biggest growth and jump in revenue that you will have seen to date. What personal development programs are you committed to this year? Which live events are you attend besides your company convention? I’d love to hear about it in the comments.
Today is Day 35 of the #40daysofgratitude challenge and the winner of the random gift is Cheryl MacLellan!!! She will be receiving a copy of John C Maxwell’s Living an Inspired Life audio program. Congratulations Cheryl!!
