onepamperedmom68 said:I can relate to you totally! I love going to my team meetings but I sometimes feel like I am SO behind everyone else. I sell PC because I love the products and it is a very part time thing for me but when I sit and think of EVERYTHING I could be getting (trips, etc) I kinda get a little bummed.
I struggle to get bookings ALL THE TIME! I don't know if it is what I say or do. People always compliment me on what a good job I did but then when I ask if they would be interested in hosting their own show they always have some excuse. I know there are comebacks for the excuses but I can never think of them at the time! ARGHH!
We just have to keep our chins up and keep hanging in there!
Princess said:That is exactly how i feel as well....i love my meetings but I see people getting recognition for $1000 shows etc...and I feel like I failed! But like you said keep our chins up!
fruit76loop said:when you compete with others in this business you will only hurt yourself! You need to compete with yourself! What I mean by that is set your own goals and decide where you want to go. Not everyone on my team wants to go to the Bahamas...not everyone wants to do 8 shows a month! But if you are comparing yourself to some of the top sellers and it is not your own goal to be a top seller...then you are selling yourself short!
Was it your goal to have $1000 shows? If not, then why feel like you have failed?
Belinda Ellsworth has some great points on this! If you have an opportunity to go see her...do it!!
tpchefrebecca said:I know it stinks to be in a rut. It will get better. One thing I told a fellow consultant to do is take your newsletter to the grocery store with you and hand it out to the shoppers as you are shopping. I am going to try it out this month and see what happens.
I know Michelle; you can tell that some other consultants don't go or can't go to their cluster meetings and/or aren't communicating with their director, and really miss out. I have never missed a cluster meeting. I have a wonderful time and always learn something from others.MichelleRoth said:Just a question. What do you ladies do at your cluster meetings?
You are talking about shadowing your director, or one of the top sellers in your cluster....
At our cluster meetings out here (I have a GREAT director) one of the top sellers does their demo or the rest of us each month. First we do recognition, then regular training, then the demo. (Although this month I'm wishing the demo was first, as it's my turn to do it... )
Just an idea. It really helps to get ideas from other consultants to add into your own show!
