I have a 'meeting' with my first potential recruit tonight, and I'm really nervous! I've lightly talked with others at my shows about becoming a consultant, but never has someone ever been seriously interested! Funny thing is, she is from a catalog show (DH got orders from work), and not even from a cooking show. So, I don't even know if she is aware of cooking shows!
I want to make sure that I point out all of the benefits to being a consultant, but also, I don't want her to be overwhelmed and run away. I will be 100% honest, since that is my style, but I want to make sure I at least look like I know what I'm talking about!
Anyway, I'm really nervous, because I've only recently stepped up my business, and feel that I'm not even completely knowledgeable on everything, and worry about having someone under me! I guess my confidence is a bit low right now, since I have not had a cooking show in months, and only had 2 catalog shows in January, and 2 again in February. I think that if I had a cooking show recently under my belt, I wouldn't be so worried/ embarassed. What are the main things I should mention? Should I really be as concerned as I am? I'm trying to pull as much off of the website as possible, since I really don't have much in the way of recruiting materials. I wish I had been more prepared, but this just came up today!
Any help would be appreciated! What do you all say to your recruits that leave them wanting more, instead of running away?!
Thanks in advance for the help.
