Why did I choose Direct Sales? What made me think it would be a great idea? Well, let me tell you why!!
As you have probably seen, Direct Sales is becoming more and more popular. There are so many people who are jumping on, and many new companies coming out to fit everyone’s liking. And the investment to own your own company is so much cheaper than having to buy a franchise.
What I love, is that Direct Sales gives you a chance to do what you love and work your own hours. If you’re a night owl, work your business at night. Morning person? Perfect! You work those hours you want! You don’t have to worry about traffic, so that hour or so of going to work, and another to come home, I don’t know about you, but I can’t stand rush hour. If you’re in a small town, you’re lucky about this. 🙂 And if you’re living in Northern Canada, the winters? Starting your car in the early morning because it’s so cold? Not necessary (unless you have to bring your children to daycare/school, or give a ride, then you still don’t have a choice).
You get to be you! You get to show your quirkiness, your seriousness, and you get to attract people that are attracted to you! You get to have fun! And you get to use your imagination to get yourself known.
You love the products but not sure it’s for you? Most companies provide training from those who have been successful. And most companies give you so much product at an amazing price, so what is the worse that could happen? You got amazing products and an amazing price! You didn’t have to spend hundreds of thousands on your company. You didn’t have to hire people, you didn’t have to decorate, to revamp your building or anything. So even if it didn’t work out, you got some experience, knowledge, and understanding, and products.
It is important to know one thing. Is that in Direct Sales, you will not reach the top without putting any work. Like any company to get your product going, you need to put time and effort. So your success is based on the amount of work you put. That is why there are different people. There is;
The Kitnapper – This is one of the most common in any Direct Sales, literally joining for the kit. Yet, You wouldn’t believe how many people joined just for the kit, only to have success and build a team and reach the top!
The Hobbyist – They love the product, and because they know they purchase enough, they join for the discount, or sell to a few people who are interested.
The Life Changer – They do not want to work those 9-5 jobs or just can’t due to their situation, so they do everything in their power to change their lives for the better. They will work day and night, and push, and learn, and read, and focus, because they want this so bad! I understand that it’s not always possible, I really do. But it’s there and it’s within grasp, and it all depends on how hard you really want this.
When I decided to join, I wasn’t sure. But now I have decided, that I want this because I love it. Why did I choose my company? Because I love the mission behind it. I love the fact that it was created to Uplift, Empower and Validate women. That it was created with the goal to build a Foundation to help women who have been sexually abused, and although our CEO thought it would take 5 years, it only took 2 to be able to create this foundation. I love that it is a company that is naturally based, with no cruelty towards animals. I love how the products are of such great quality. I love how the products makes me feel. I have only recently been able to go out in public without makeup, not an ounce. It has taught me to accept myself, and the sisterhood behind it? WOW!! When you meet a bunch of amazing women who uplift each other, what more could you ask for? Every time you reach a milestone, you are recognized, because that is one step closer to the top. You have free training, and there is so much info out there that there is no reason for you not to succeed. It all depends on your drive!
And if you are a stay-at-home parent, this is amazing! Direct Sales allows you to stay at home, and work, and yet you never have to miss the important things. What if the school calls and your child is sick? You don’t need to tell your boss that you must leave, why? Because you are your own boss and already made up your mind. You know your child needs you.
Or even if you are working and want some extra cash or slowly build your business before quitting your job. What will you do? Only you are your own limit.
Do you love to travel? Did you know that most companies have trip incentives? That’s right! You work hard, you earn your trips. You work hard, you can earn your car. There are a lot of factors to help motivate you.
It’s hard work at first, but my goodness is it ever worth it. Do not listen to those who tried and stopped, just because it wasn’t for them, it doesn’t mean it wasn’t for you. And sometimes, it’s just the company that they weren’t passionate about, they haven’t met their dream job yet.
