I know there are threads on here dealing with these issues, and I will do a search to get what info I can from them. I just wanted to get a current-day perspective, since some of the threads may be pretty old. And this way, I can get current feedback from people who have dealt with this type of situation. I worked a booth last week with a clustermate at a home business/franchise fair. We didn't get a lot of leads, but those we got are recruit leads. (yay!) One of the women I spoke to seemed to have several issues with direct sales business. When I approached her, she made a comment that led me to believe she thought we just wanted her to have a party. Once I explained that we were there to talk to people who were interested in making money, she opened up a little. However, she keeps Kosher, and seems to have in her head that she would be somehow hobbled in her business by that. I did try to address that concern by telling her that she could always do kosher demos, or by using hosts' tools (when they had them). But the other big issue is that she doesn't have a car, and has a very small house (she told me that when I mentioned that I knew consultants who do all their parties at their own homes). Detroit has LOUSY public transportation, and she said she doesn't have friends who would be willing to drive her around. If you've dealt with consultants on your team who have worked around either or both of these situations, can you please share how they made it work? Thanks!
