Due to personal issues, I have kind of fallen off the face of the earth with my company. What do you do when you need to get back into the game. My friends and family are not really an option as they have all had parties before and are not interested. What do you do to get going again?

Thanks ladies!

Hi there!! I am new to this group but I have been a successful Pure Romance Consultant for over three years now. I have helped train well over 60 gals, and that is one of the most frequent questions I get. There are several things you can do:
1- create a facebook or myspace page and add friends-- and then add friends of your friends. As you know, your closest friends and family will be the first to disappoint you, however, people you do not personally know will not (usually).

2- hold an open house

3- go to a local meeting. If there are no meetings in your area, hold your own meeting for your downline if you have one (this will motivate all af you).

4- read an awesome book-- BUILD IT BIG is a great book for home business owners.

5-Set up at a trade show or womens expo- there might be a small fee but the leads you will get will jumpstart your business again for sure!

6- call ALL of your past hostesses, customers.... Tell them that you are so sorry that you havent kept in touch-- DONT give them an excuse :) Say something like this: Hi suzie, this is ____ with (company). Do you even remember me? First thing I;d like to say is Im so sorry for not keeping in touvh with you. thank you so much for being a preferred customer. I was calling to ask you a quick question. Would you be interested in getting $100 in free product (or whatever your special is). You are entitled to this as a preffered customer of mine. (yes-- book show, if no---- "thats okay, I really appreciate your past patronage, did you have any questions or concerns about your last purchase?) ...

If these ideas don't help, then maybe you need to find something else you are passionate about :)

Hope these ideas help!

Sincerely,

Ashley Travis

Hi Lisa, I don't know much about the business you are doing but I find that remembering why I decided to do a home business is a good motivator. Do you have a strong reason why? Do you have it written down? Is there other people, support team that you can talk with. We meet weekly with our team either on the phone or for coffee and I find that is also a good motivator. We challenge each other and share struggles and successes. Setting and writing down specific goals. Are you someone who likes challenges. Challenge yourself to reach a certain goal. Are you passionate about what you are doing, do you like your home business. If not, it may be really hard to get motivated. Was it very successful when you were full swing? If it wasn't that may be a reason why it is tough for you to get motivated. You may want to look at another business that will inspire you. I absolutely love what I do so its fun and easy to do. If you need help trying to decide on another business I could send you a list of success factors you should look for when searching for a good company to partner with. Hope this helps. I wish you much success. Denise

Start over with something that has a lot of financial potential and a lot of support. We all need that! I just started a home business that is part of a reliable company that I trust and there's no inventory needed. Just good personal skills and a willingness to work hard. Email beckiulmer@yahoo.com and I'll tell you more! Maybe you could join my team! All the Best!

Thank you ladies for all of your advice. To answer some questions, I am a Thirty-One Gifts consultant. Everything you said makes sense. I am going to hold an open house and see where it goes from there.

I suggest treating yourself like a new consultant, which means talking to lots of people. well, actually all consultants should be doing that :)

if you have a list of past customers, perhaps a quick note letting them know you are going to be active in the business again. You could even sweeten the deal with some kind of special for past customers and hosts.

Set specific goals. Rather than saying "I'm going to make some calls today" say "I'm going to TALK to five people today". and then stick to it.

You can do it! That is the great thing about direct sales. The flexibility allows for "life" to happen!

I have had this happen and I held a open house. Posted flyers and got the word around. It really helped me jump start again.

[deleted account]

I honestly dropped my new business when I had my second child and it was able to survive a good 6 months until I was able to get back in the swing of things. Getting back into it has to come from you and what you want to do - what does the business mean to you? I have now owned my own business over the first year and the hardest part is behind me! If you want more specific examples please feel free to email me at mrturtleco@hotmail.com and reference circle of moms. I will keep you in my prayers for the motivation to jumpstart your business again!

I had the same thing happen, due to personal I fell off the wagon of working the business side. I have just started getting on track, the biggest help was deciding the reason I want to do this and then setting aside specific times to work it and also educate myself. Just dont spend so much time on research that you don't actaully do anything with your business! Mine is able to be done by internet so it is just a matter of setting hours that I will do it!
Best of luck, and it is worth having your own business, you just have to get moving on it! Hope this helps!

What was your old company? Do you need to try a new one to get excited about? I was looking for a new company that was on the upswing and found one!! I was also looking for an opportunity to make some extra money -- Thirty-One Gifts was the opportunity I was looking for. I loved the philosophy behind the company and the people within it!
Thirty One Gifts offers a unique product line, ranging from purses and hand bags to stationary and personalized accessories. Thirty One products are outstanding, unique, and are very-high, if not the highest, quality. The Thirty One Gifts mission is to celebrate, encourage and reward, because of this we put all effort to ensure our products are cleverly designed, gift-able, affordable and of very high quality. Gifts from Thirty One will always bring a smile to the recipients face.
The best part is that I create my own hours. I can work as little or as much as I would like. The income possibilities are endless. There are also fantastic rewards and incentives with this company. The company is so new in the marketplace that no one has really heard of it and the consultants are not saturating the area. Our start- up fee is $99 and they have a promo now to earn $50 cash back!
Check out my website at http://www.mythirtyone.com/perkinson for more information and see the amazing Thirty-One products. Feel free to message me at any time :-)
