If you don't have your Facebook FAN PAGE in your section of WHERE YOU WORK, on your PERSONAL page - YOU ARE MISSING SALES!

I just tried to purchase from someone and can't find their link - I know ME - If I don't order right then... I will get sidetracked.

Building a Team

Posted on April 24, 2017 at 1:35 AM Comments comments (6136)

Are you building a team? Most will say yes, as we are a group of direct sales reps. Want to turn those team squatters into team earners? Meet with them on a level they understand as, I AM HERE FOR YOU .... rather than, I AM ONLY CHECKING IN WITH YOU FOR YOUR NUMBERS. If you establish a relationship of trust with them, where they can tell you ... "Hey, I am going through something personal right now, and my mind hasn't been on my business." Rather than you checking in and they feel like in ord...

Know the Difference between a Fan Page and a Group!

I get asked daily the between GROUPS and FAN PAGES aka Business Pages. Most don't know, so I will break it down to you.

A group is where you post things you can't post to the public. Like special pricing to honor your GROUP VIPS - yes - people in your GROUP are your VIP's.

However, if you aren't utilizing a fan page - aka BUSINESS PAGE... you are missing out on SO MANY TOOLS!

The Business Page acts as a way to reach people who aren...

Embrace the downtime!

As Small Business owners, there's many times you are being chased by time, or feel like you are trying to beat the clock. Your poor adrenals are screaming and can only take so much caffeine before they poop out!

In saying this... although the thrill of a booked calendar makes us mentally say... SUCCESS... We know that unless we have some some down time, our bodies won't be up for that challenge.

I want to encourage you in this season where you feel like things are...

You HAVE to know YOUR why in any VENTURE you pursue! This WHY is YOUR PASSION ... it's what will get you up out of bed in the morning, it's what will keep you going when you face doubters... or when people tell you no... YOUR WHY is powerful!

If you are trying to give up, your WHY isn't s...

Fan Page must do's!

Posted on January 22, 2016 at 6:05 AM Comments comments (917)

If you share your business page, aka fanpage with a post about your product, it's important that you do two things.

1. Make sure you have RECENT posts on your business page. If someone goes there and the last post was the 19th of December... or November... you haven't even addressed the NEW YEAR on your business page... they will think your business is a hobby - that you don't have follow through.

2. Make sure you are checking your messages from your business ...

It's said that every success story STARTS with a "WHY"... every successful person KNOWs their why!

Have you ever heard someone talk about what they do, and the passion they are speaking with, makes you wanna go out and do something great too?  Well that is the side effect of KNOWING YOUR WHY!

Ever wonder why there are some people at the top of their Direct Sale business, and others that say it didn't ...

  It feels good to be seeing some of the posts I see tonight on Facebook. Folks are going out after a long week of graduations, field days with the kiddos, and last days of school, to get a good meal and relax.

I am seeing post after post of folks checking in at local restaurants and giving...
