Guest Post: Networking from the Heart

The following blog post was submitted by Bronze Ambassador Lisa Hartzler.

When our family started taking the Reliv products 14 ½ years ago, I simply could not keep my mouth shut.  Everyone had to hear the results our family was getting on the products.  Before I had even become a distributor, I was telling people and they were asking me where they could get some too.  I was actually sending them to the gal I was buying it from and she approached me and said, “Lisa, you’re doing the business and you don’t even realize it!”  I couldn’t believe how simple it really was and I decided that I could actually earn some extra income simply by…

Sharing from my heart the reality of what the products were doing for my family
and let them choose whether they saw themselves fitting into what I had to offer.

The challenge was when I actually signed my name on the dotted line.  For some reason, I thought that I suddenly had to be an expert in nutrition – so wrong!  I needed to simply…share from my heart!

Are you a new networker?  Are you struggling since you’ve signed your name on the dotted line?  Just remember to:

      • Share from your heart.
      • Remember why you’re passionate about your products.
      • Share testimonies (yours and others) – people can’t deny or argue actual results.
      • Don’t “sell” – people don’t like to be sold to – simply share.
      • Care about people – people don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care – you don’t have to be an expert of your products.
      • Briefly share – don’t “brain-dump” (don’t share too much) – you don’t want them to get the “deer in the headlight look”.

In a nutshell: Briefly and passionately share from your heart why you’re excited about your products.
