One year at a nationwide meeting a group of experts were sharing how tough it was to stay up to date with their full-time task, their part-time direct sales business, and run a household. Simply put, they did not see how it was possible to find the time making prospecting calls for recruiting. As I listened to them, it was simple for me to empathize.
If you have a full-time job and a household, in addition to your direct sales company, you may not only be wondering how you’re expected to fit in prospecting calls to hire people, but likewise prospecting calls to book house parties as well.
Whether you have a family waiting for you when you get home or not, what I want you to comprehend is that as soon as you walk because door, you will wish to unwind. And your brain is going to give you reason after reason why you deserve a break and can wait till tomorrow making all those prospecting calls.
This may amaze you however I am not going to tell you to disregard that brain of yours. Rather, I am going to reveal you the best ways to relax, enjoy your family and your evening, and move your direct sales company ahead.
The factor it is so tough to get yourself to make call when you get house from work is that you have to press both physically and psychologically versus the present. Ever attempt to run or ride your bike versus the wind? If you have, you understand how hard that is to do, which is what it’s like when you get back from a complete day of work and need to “work up” the energy to work once again. Nine breaks of 10 it does not sound fun, which is why you put it off until tomorrow, then the day after tomorrow, and so on
. The key? Make those prospecting calls before you ever walk through the front door, so that when you do get home, you can take pleasure in being with your family and unwind.
Here is what I suggest: Every night make a note of the phone numbers of three to five potential customers and/or customers in a little note pad. Throughout your lunch hour, make a minimum of one call (if you feel like making more, go for it, but make at least one). Completing one call will just take a couple of minutes and you will not only have the majority of your lunch break to relax, but you will also be able to actually enjoy it because you tried to move your business ahead.
After work, find a comfy area at your work environment and even in your vehicle making another 2 to four call. Think it or not, even by making only three calls a day, you can move your company ahead. One of the most magnificent aspects of this business is the result that consistency has on it. By making 3 calls 6 days a week, you end up making 72 calls a month.
Now, keep in mind the group of specialists I heard talking about the challenges of constructing a larger company, if one had a full-time job and a household alongside a direct sales business? I shared with that group this extremely concept, and at the next nationwide conference they actually hunted me down to inform me their amazing results. A number of had sponsored 3 people, and one female had sponsored 7 people by implementing that concept alone!
Sometimes the most convenient method to make huge things happen in this business is to take little but consistent everyday actions that do not need you to suffer or compromise time with those you enjoy.
