1 season at a national meeting a group of consultants were sharing how challenging it was to stay up to date with their full time task, their part-time direct sales business, and run a household. In other words, they did not see how it was possible to find the time to make prospecting require recruiting. As I paid attention to them, it was easy for me to understand.
If you have a full-time task and a family, in addition to your direct sales business, you might not only be questioning how you’re supposed to suit prospecting calls to recruit individuals, but likewise prospecting calls to book house celebrations too.
Whether you have a family waiting for you when you get home or not, what I want you to understand is that as quickly as you walk because door, you will want to relax. And your brain is going to provide you reason after justification why you deserve a break and can wait till tomorrow to make all those prospecting calls.
This might surprise you but I am not going to tell you to ignore that brain of yours. Instead, I am going to show you how to relax, enjoy your family and your evening, and move your direct sales company ahead.
The reason it is so difficult to obtain yourself making phone calls as soon as you get home from work is that you need to press both physically and mentally versus the present. Ever try to run or ride your bike against the wind? If you have, you know how difficult that is to do, and that is what it’s like when you get home from a complete day of work and need to “work up” the energy to work again. Nine breaks of 10 it does not sound fun, which is why you put it off until tomorrow, and after that the day after tomorrow, and so on
. The key? Make those prospecting calls before you ever stroll through the front door, so that when you do get house, you can take pleasure in being with your household and unwind.
Here is what I recommend: Every evening jot down the phone numbers of 3 to 5 prospects and/or clients in a little note pad. Throughout your lunch hour, make a minimum of one call (if you seem like making more, go all out, but make a minimum of one). Finishing one call will only take a couple of moments and you will not only have most of your lunch break to unwind, but you will likewise be able to really enjoy it due to the fact that you tried to move your business ahead.
After work, discover a comfortable spot at your workplace or perhaps in your car to make another 2 to four call. Believe it or not, even by making only 3 calls a day, you can move your company ahead. One of the most incredible features of this company is the effect that consistency has on it. By making 3 calls six days a week, you end up making 72 calls a month.
Now, keep in mind the group of specialists I heard speaking about the challenges of building a bigger company, if one had a full-time job and a family together with a direct sales business? I shared with that group this very concept, and at the next nationwide conference they actually hunted me down to inform me their incredible results. Numerous had sponsored three people, and one woman had sponsored 7 people by executing that concept alone!
Sometimes the most convenient method to make big things happen in this company is to take little but constant daily actions that do not require you to suffer or sacrifice time with those you like.
