Why Isn't My Business Working?

by Tracy Ralph, National Sales Director

You bought your Kit, and you had high expectations for your new business ... so why isn't it "working?"

This business works, but are you working your business?

One thing I have found from experience is that we need to put time into our business every day.

People go to college for 2-4 years - and sometimes much longer - to learn their "profession."  When you start a new job, there is a "training" period to learn how to do that job.  The same is true in direct sales.  It doesn't necessarily just happen when you buy the Kit.  You have to make it happen.

How much time are you putting into your business?  An hour a day? (The Power Hour tool is a must!)  Ten minutes a day?  Are you putting in busy time, or are you investing in time that will actually advance your business?  There is a difference!  What are you doing to learn this business and become a professional?

Here are some concrete steps you can take today and every day to increase your professionalism and invest time wisely in your business:

  • Learn about your products

  • Watch the party presentation video daily

  • Be on the weekly training calls

  • Are you on One on One coaching calls?

  • Have you made a list of people to call to let them know you are in business?

  • Are you calling the people on the list?

  • Are you spending time daily on your business?  How much time?  15 minutes? A half hour? Are you implementing the Power Hour?

  • Are you holding in home parties?  The Power is in the Party

  • Are you sharing the opportunity with others?

  • Are you consistent?

When I was in the field, I found this to either be the most frustrating business ...or the most amazing business.  It all depended on me and my ACTIONS.  When I was diligent about doing the 10 things listed above, my business soared.  I had fun and made money!  When I didn't apply them in my business, I was frustrated and  wanted to just "quit."   I have to tell you, I liked having fun and making money much better than being frustrated!  If you are not where you want to be in your business, the good news is that you can turn it around very quickly!

I want to challenge you to start working your business on a daily basis - and you will see dramatic results.

Be consistent with no excuses.  Notice how consistent you are in  showering, brushing your teeth, washing your hair every day, and paying bills, buying groceries and feeding your family every week?  It's the same with your business.  You will be amazed at what happens in your business when you are consistent every day and every week.

Make a calendar of the next 30 days, and at the top of the calendar write BE CONSISTENT.  If you stick to being consistent for 30 days - no excuses! - you will discover what is working in your business and thus be able to change your habits.

This business works - when you work the business.
