Struggles of a Direct Sales Romance Consultant

I have a great bunch of loyal clients and community supporters, but I find that sometimes I have more doors shut in face then I would if I were with like a jewelry or candle company. There are places I just can not seem to get into because they can't get past the toys. I have started not even mentioning the toys as I sell a whole catalog of other stuff, but people know us by the toys so they say things like "This is a route our business wants to take". I'm getting better at dealing with rejection but it a little discerning. Any suggestions?

Direct Sales Consultant Safety – A Necessary Precaution

When booking parties with people we know or through someone they know we generally don't worry. When we get a call from a complete stranger however, do you have any suggestions? My husband said he wants me to leave the persons name, number and address on a sheet of paper on the kitchen counter. It may sound dramatic but it's a good idea.

Holding a Party Open for More Sales

I had a party 2 weeks ago, only a few guests but the mother-in-law of the hostess said she would get a few outside orders. I called and she said that she DOES have orders and will mail them in to me. Well, that was two weeks ago, and I still haven't received them! What do I do and how do I keep this from happening again?

It seems no matter what I do, I can't get people to book shows. I've tried everything I can think of, but no luck. Also, I never get people to fill out their with list - I overheard someone at a party saying if they fill it out, it will give me a reason to call them! Any suggestions?

“And In This Corner…” Competition And The Party Plan Consultant

Recently I received an email from one of my Diva Success Sisters Chapter Founders asking how to handle the "competition" within her Chapter. She had met Consultants from the same Party Plan Companies, and was worried about there being conflict with having more than one consultant of the same company at the meetings. She already had friendships with her existing Members, and was worried they would be upset if she brought in their "competition" to the meeting. It got me thinking.... do we really HAVE "Competition" in Party Plan? I think not, and here is WHY!

Making Room For Success

If SUCCESS was to find you right now - right this very moment... would you have the room in your life to let it in? I didn't think so. So how do you Make Room For Success? Make no mistake - this is much easier said than done. It requires soul searching, being able to be brutally honest with yourself, and learning the ability to tell others NO when it comes to your life, and your business. Know that in order to bring success into your life, you must "make room" - both figuratively and literally - for it to come in, and have room to stay.
