To do this business as a business builder you must be disciplined and make calls. That is just a fact of the sales world. The beauty of stella & dot is that once people know us, they are easy calls to make! But if you live in a new/underserved market you will face a few challenges. But don’t worry, I have launched my business in 4 very different markets across the US in my 3.5 yrs with stella. And I have been successful in every market-rural or metro. But my key to success was mindset & action. It would be very easy to quit at times, but I have a goal: to earn enough $$ to pay the mortgage & PAY OFF the student loan debt. Someday, sooner than later, we hope to scream: WE’RE DEBT FREE!!! Also, I have worked in other sales positions and I absolutely think stella & dot is the place to be. I am so happy with the stylist community, training and the line is simply irresistible!
How do you keep your head in the game?
1-have a goal, then make a plan!
2-schedule the time to do the work! I call it Smilin’ & Dialin’!!
3-don’t allow yourself a ‘back door’. Your business depends on your consistency & positive mind-set, but if you tell yourself, “Well, we’ll just see what happens….not much will happen!
4-discover what fills you up & make sure you do it! Eat well, exercise, yoga, a massage, whatever makes you feel peace.
And last but not least, remember: …..if you treat your business like a hobby, you’ll have $$ to play with. If you treat your business like a business you’ll earn SERIOUS $$!
Sparkle & Shine!
