Partnership is a key foundation in Reliv, especially the partnership between you and the company. When both parties have a clear understanding of the strengths and specific duties they bring to the table — that’s when a partnership works best. For 30 years, Reliv has been committed to upholding our end with these three promises:
- We offer superior nutritional products and deliver them on time.
- We offer the best compensation plan in the industry and get you paid on time.
- We offer exceptional office support with marketing tools, customer service, accounting, technology, etc.
We have committed to these three promises for the past 30 years and will stick by them always. This is our structure, our simple system that works.
Assuming you desire to build a business with Reliv, your role is to develop and build YOUR organization, and collectively, all of your organizations make up one Reliv organization. Your #1 role as a distributor leader is to establish a “structure” for YOUR business that YOU believe in. You’re all “independent” entrepreneurs which makes you the CEO of your own business. You are free to do what you believe works to attract new people and develop them into successful leaders for tomorrow.
There are many online and offline methods from hotel meetings, in-home meetings, webinars, conference calls, 3-way calls, social media, lunch-and-learns, beehives, special events, Super Saturdays, Girlfriends’ Getaways, conferences…and as leaders, you must decide what structure and combination of methods are going to work for you. And you can feel safe to build your business as you see fit. I encourage you to work with uplines, downlines and sidelines with a spirit of cooperation, but at the end of the day, you have to incorporate and pursue a structure that you believe will work. Nobody can sustain anything that they believe in halfheartedly. You have to build a structure that you take ownership of and have 100% belief.
In our business, one MUST have a system to get people started strong, or onboarded. You can be the best recruiter, but if you don’t get your new recruit started with a clear and simple plan of action with structure, they’ll never get off square one. People need a path. They need a structure to plug into for learning, motivation, growth and recognition…as well as a structure to plug their new people into. When you know your structure and daily/weekly/monthly plan of action, new people will follow. People follow leaders that know where they’re going and how to get there.
I believe there are two basic fundamentals in our business. First, you must have a compelling Message to share that attracts people to join your mission. I believe you can check that box. Second, you must have a structure for new people to embrace, plug into and duplicate. The structure in your organization may not be identical to another’s, and that’s okay…the key is to have structure. Honestly, the similarities among organizations will far outweigh the differences.
We are partners, all of us. We succeed and celebrate together when we all do our part in growing Reliv and more importantly, when we nourish our world.
