Direct sellers have to take it upon themselves to figure out ways to get comfortable sharing their companies products. For some of us this is really easy and for others it will be one of the most challenging obstacles in our business. I recommend a three step strategy to assist you in getting more comfortable with the act of sharing your business.
- Share your business ideas with your friends and family who are SAFE. I say safe because not all of them support us in our business and when we have someone who is not supportive they can throw grenades at us with their words and that does nothing for our confidence.
- Share your business with strangers by offering them a company sample and catalog. By sharing with strangers, if you make mistakes then who cares, they do not know you and you just might make a new customer in the process. Make it a point to do this at least 3 times a week.
- Share your business with those you kinds of know but not really know once you start to grow your confidence and be sure to give them sample products or promotional products. For some reason these are some of the hardest people to share our business with because in our minds we think they are the ones to judge us and talk badly about us to our real friends and family. So as we practice on friends and family and then strangers, we will grow our confidence and start to think more rationale; therefore, we will finally come to a point where we believe that everyone just cannot live without our products.
