How can I be successful?
The time you choose your kit can be the most excited you are with this business. Some people fizzle out quickly for a few reasons we’ll get to shortly.
Take these steps to start your Usborne business off right.
- Plan your launch within the first two weeks of signing up with Usborne Books & More. Plan when you’re most passionate about your new business. So many times life gets in the way. It always will! So make the smartest decision and plan a Facebook or home party or even better, both, within your first 2 weeks of purchasing your kit. (If you haven’t joined yet, be sure to check out the FAQ’s here.
- Find a mentor that is above you or further in their business than you. This could be your sponsor or it could be another upline leader on your team. Find someone you can go to when you feel frustrated that you got your first no or your party didn’t go as well as you’d hoped. The real difference between people that fail and the people that succeed in this business is how these people react to failure. Do they let it get to them and quit or do they take it as a part of the journey and keep going?
- Do the research! One of the great things about this is obviously the books! Use the books in your kit and become an expert on those! Read the customer reviews of these and other books to prep you for your book parties. Your knowledge and enthusiasm will inspire others to purchase, host, or even join your team.
- Always keep your why in your back pocket. Why did you join? What led you to make this decision at this time of your life. As you work the business, your why will change. That’s normal. Have your “why” posted where you can see it every day to keep you motivated.
- Keep contacts. Start this business off the right way. Do not assume all of your friends want to join you in this awesome endeavor. Ask. If they ignore you, take that as a no, and keep the relationship both for personal and business reasons. Your friends that aren’t interested in the books very well may refer you to a friend that is interested. As you meet people at parties, booths, storytimes, and other events, keep track of their names and contact information. Take notes as you meet them if you’re able. Keep up the relationship from the beginning and these may be customers, hostesses, and future teammates for life!
- Take advantage of the many trainings available to you as a new consultant. The back office is full! YouTube is also another great resource. Talk to your upline about their favorite trainings. Many of my favorite paid trainings have been through Sassy Suite.
Here are two of my favorite paid trainings.
- Fortune is in the Follow-up: this training goes through when to follow-up and what to say! It really breaks down how to follow-up after events which is key to a successful business.
- Epic Live Facebook Parties: this EPIC training shows you how to build your own online party to truly stand out! Get your guests to enjoy the experience of the party and come back for more!
