I had shared blog post on being lost in darkness in the woods (most darkest place I’ve encountered without a flashlight) and as I think about that event and how I got out of it I had to pat me in the shoulders 🙂
There is no time to think but to Act. Had I been my old self years ago I wouldn’t know what to do and cry. Having no phone reception unable to contact anyone anywhooo….
I don’t say this so people can feel bad for me it’s the last thing I want as I’m a strong female however I say it with the intention to inspire others that it doesn’t matter what dark place your at whether it’s the woods, rock bottom, divorced, desperation… You must “act”‘ even if you don’t feel like moving…
Now that I see it with a broader lense being lost was “no big” deal but at that time it was! Definitely my past experiences have molded me into this strong feminine female to deal with whatever comes up.
I’m no longer in direct sales (network marketing) however if there is one nugget I learned in my 5 year tenure that can help anyone as I’m seeing several posts on my feed of people leaving their teams or not being proactive in their business using their products it’s this:
Before any recognition of having your newest person in your team and right after they sign the dotted line whether in person or virtually
BLUEPRINT them. (Unless you recruited a 6-7 figure heavy hitter that knows what they’re doing and you personally know him/her)
Get to know them. Communicate. Be interested. What are their goals?
By not doing this 2 things will happen I can guarantee you:
1) They will not be interested in working with the company or your team
2) They will leave.
Every day in every way in every relationship your marketing your ideas to be heard. You want customers to recommend you, clients to hire you. Your Influence is key.
The same way your newest person wants to be heard of their Why. Why they decided to venture a new business with you. After all it did cost money. Money they probably had to borrow, work for and we all know money doesn’t grow on trees.
Point is if you master being influential & influence human behavior you can win better relationships, greater admiration & deeper trust.
