1 season at a national meeting a group of consultants were sharing how challenging it was to stay up to date with their full time task, their part-time direct sales company, and run a household. In other words, they did not see how it was possible to discover the time to make prospecting calls for recruiting. As I heard them, it was easy for me to understand.
If you have a full-time job and a family, in addition to your direct sales business, you might not only be wondering how you’re expected to suit prospecting calls to recruit individuals, but also prospecting calls to book house parties too.
Whether you have a family waiting for you when you get home or not, exactly what I want you to comprehend is that as soon as you walk because door, you will wish to relax. And your brain is going to provide you reason after reason why you deserve a break and can wait up until tomorrow to make all those prospecting calls.
This may surprise you but I am not going to tell you to neglect that brain of yours. Instead, I am going to show you ways to relax, enjoy your family and your evening, and move your direct sales company ahead.
The reason it is so difficult to get yourself making phone calls when you get home from work is that you need to press both physically and mentally against the current. Ever attempt to run or ride your bike versus the wind? If you have, you know how tough that is to do, and that is exactly what it’s like when you get back from a full day of work and need to “work up” the energy to work again. Nine times out of ten it does not sound enjoyable, which is why you put it off till tomorrow, then the day after tomorrow, and so on
. The key? Make those prospecting calls prior to you ever stroll through the front door, so that as soon as you do get house, you can enjoy being with your family and relax.
Here is exactly what I recommend: Every night make a note of the phone numbers of 3 to 5 potential customers and/or consumers in a little note pad. During your lunch hour, make at least one call (if you seem like making more, go for it, however make at least one). Finishing one call will just take a few moments and you will not just have most of your lunch break to relax, however you will likewise have the ability to really enjoy it since you attempted to move your company ahead.
After work, discover a comfy area at your work environment or perhaps in your car to make another two to four phone calls. Believe it or not, even by making just three calls a day, you can move your company ahead. One of the most amazing features of this company is the impact that consistency has on it. By making three calls six days a week, you wind up making 72 calls a month.
Now, keep in mind the group of experts I heard discussing the obstacles of building a larger business, if one had a full-time task and a family together with a direct sales company? I showed that group this very concept, and at the next national conference they actually hunted me down to inform me their fantastic results. Several had sponsored three individuals, and one lady had sponsored seven individuals by carrying out that idea alone!
Often the easiest way to make big things occur in this business is to take small however consistent daily actions that do not require you to suffer or compromise time with those you love.
