OOPs! I knew I forgot something!

Oops!  I finally broke the chain.....I totally forgot to do my weekly blog post!  I was so engrossed in making fun gifts for my first downline convention ladies.  I've been stampin', gluin' and blingin' up a storm until the wee hours this morning.  Can't show then to you though, wouldn't want to ruin the surprise!



I am so excited to be asked to help out in many ways at convention this year.  I will be helping teach a class on Leadership day, doing the letter "B" for the ABC class and I'll be an Extravaganza helper at convention.  If you are attending convention and can't make the team reception on Wednesday night, be sure to hunt me down so I can give you your gift.

This weeks message is for all of you who have done a fantastic job of growing your teams last month and may be saying "now what?"


Business Bit:

7 Tips to be an Effective Direct Sales Leader
                                                                            by Chris Carroll

In direct sales there are always opportunities to become a leader of other people. We know them as down line or recruits, they become a part of our team. Sometimes leaders feel compelled to become responsible for their teams overall performance. They fret and sweat and break their own backs to try and make others successful. Giving others leads and recruits to boost their numbers. Finding new customers to place orders to keep the sales where they need to be. Basically doing everything to support someone elses business in order to make yours successful, to get that extra bonus check or promotion. But my question is:

Will it be worth It?

If you have been doing so much work for others, have you been able to keep your business where it should be or could be? And if the other consultant is not as compelled as you are to be successful and quits their business in a few months, you have just lost everything you put into that others business. I would suggest that you take the time to step back and look at your business and how much you should actually do for others and maybe look at some tough questions and alternatives.

* Are you helping or hindering that other persons business?
* Are they going to be able to learn and grow their own without your help someday?
* Interview your new potential people. Do they have experience in sales? How much are you
going to
  have to help?
* Learn when to let go and let them fly
* Lead by example and they can copy You
* Give them the tools and the expectations and they can be successful if they want to.
* Know that some will and some won’t. Don’t take it personally.
* Know that they have to have the drive inside but you can inspire it.

Teach your recruits to fish. Don’t give them the fish and expect then them to have a strong business. Teaching is powerful and it will make you a stronger leader.

Let me know if you would like assistance with your leadership skill. I'm always happy to help you, just contact me :o) 253-639-2708 or njsmith@wolfenet.com

Faux rosette - I came up with this quite by accident. It is created by stamping the image below from the July Stamp of the Month American Celebration in Pacifica Ink on matching cardstock punched with our scallop punch! When you see in in person it looks 3-D!
