Why Direct Sales?
Last week I celebrated my one-year anniversary with South Hill Designs. The day pretty much came and went without much fanfare. Today as I look back on the year, it’s been an amazing journey. I am often ask why anyone would want to do direct sales. This is a question worthy of some exploration, especially in the new year when people are setting goals for the things they want to accomplish this year. We are building strong teams in the US, including Puerto Rico, and in Canada. It just might be the right opportunity for you!
Create Your Own Strong Economy
In the last few years, we have seen major shifts in our economy. With multiple layoffs and downsizing in corporate America, it’s easy to feel as if the future is uncertain. Being involved in a direct sales company allows you to have more control over your own economy. If you want to earn more, you have more parties and do more sales. Another way to secure that income is by building a team of people. With this opportunity, you can set your goals and develop strategies to meet those goals. It is a definite plus not to have to rely on the whims of someone else when it comes to our income.
Perhaps one of my favorite thing about being involved with a direct sales company is the flexibility it provides for me and for my family. I am able to determine when I work and even how much I work. This allows for planning around family activities, children’s school activities, and anything else you have in your schedule. I set the days of the week when I am available for socials. I love having the flexibility to be sure that something that produces income for our family fits into our lifestyle and our schedules.
It also means that if I move, I take my business with me. Years ago, I had a lucrative business. We decided to move across country. What that meant for me was selling what I had, at a very low price, and starting all over. With a direct sales career, my business simply goes with me. I have military spouses on my team who are able to take their business with them when their spouse is transferred. No more starting over in a new job every time you move!
This week I am working on a new vision board for the new year. I will include those things I want to accomplish throughout the year and write a mission statement both for my life and for my business. What could you do with an extra $500 or even $1,000 a month? What things would you be able to do for yourself and your family that you can’t do right now? Those dreams and desires can happen when you’re involved in a direct sales company. I have a friend who took her family on a trip to China last year, all because of her income from her business.
Make a Difference for Others
This one is truly my number one reason for doing what I do. I love helping others start their own business and build it. When you hear something that says “this changes lives,” it isn’t just another sales pitch. People’s lives can and do change by having their own business and the extra income it provides for their families. I see women who develop an increased sense of self-esteem because of what they are accomplishing. Mentoring and coaching is one of my favorite things to do, and I love being able to work with my team to see them realize their potential. Confidence increases, outlook changes. It really does make a difference. Being able to say “I helped someone else” gives me a sense of accomplishment unlike anything else.
Lest you think this means it’s all easy with no work required, stop right now. That’s not at all what it means. Having a business requires a commitment, the willingness to do the work to grow your business, and a determination to stick it out, even if times are tough. That said, joining a team with leadership who is committed to providing you tools and blueprints to do that makes all the difference. I would love to help you do that.
If you are thinking about a career in direct sales, or even a change in what you do now, we should talk. I would love to share this opportunity with you. On our team, each person is in business for themselves, but not BY themself. We’d love to have you join us! For more information, please connect with me!
