Starting any business is a roller coaster. We all have different seasons in our business. Which season are you in? Do you need to refocus? The business is simple but sometimes we need to give ourselves a reality check. Ask yourself, what have I done today to strengthen my Reliv business today? Here are my three suggestions.
People Business: We are in the people business. Everyone always asks me where I find new people? I have the secret! Turn the question around: who haven’t you talked to? Who have you not talked to in your bible study? Mom’s group? Rotary club? Sunday morning church service? Son’s soccer practice? The guys in the IT department?
There are so many people in the world! Just open your eyes and then your mouth! As you do this, you will be surprised how many of these people start popping up in other parts of your life. Suddenly, the woman you sat next to in church is also at your PTA meeting. This gives you another opportunity to tell them about Reliv. Make friends wherever you go by asking people about themselves. As you get to know more about them, their needs will come up in conversation. Most likely Reliv can fit their needs, so offer the solution!
By adding new people to your contact list every day, you will never run out of new people to prospect. There is no pressure in this business; just possibility! Have fun, relax and get to know a new friend today.
Follow Up: You can speak to a million people, but if you don’t follow up your business will not develop. Following up is a skill to master. The goal of the follow up is to expose your new prospect, distributor or customer to another part of Reliv. The more exposure they get, the wider the vision they will have about Reliv and the better the understanding of what we have to offer the world.
Reflect & Learn: Indulge in a Reliv experience every day! Every experience is a learning experience – it is neither a good nor bad experience. If you have made the decision to learn the network marketing profession, please know that it does not happen overnight. Network marketing is a career that takes years to master. Some people are naturally inclined to it, or are faster learners than others. Some will never learn the profession and will give up before they “graduate” from the Reliv University. As long as you are persistent and never give up, you will be successful.
Every Reliv experience you have is an experience you need to step back and learn from. Set your feelings aside, and change your perspective. Look at the experience from a business perspective.
Ask yourself, what worked? What didn’t work? What could you have done better with that customer or Distributor? Like with any profession, this career takes training! Every experience is neither good nor bad – just an opportunity for improvement. Someday, you will have graduated from Reliv University and you will be a Professional Reliv Distributor. Look forward to it, but don’t forget to enjoy the ride and have fun, I’ve been told the journey is well worth it.
