I am so frustrated and disappointed today. I had a recruit who signed at the beginning of August- she is a former consultant and was SO excited about getting back into the biz. Came to our first team meeting after she signed, was awesome, so enthusiastic, the whole nine yards. I saw so much potential for her, and she could REALLY use the $$! She had people asking her to do shows for them!! Then she fell off the face of the earth. Finally got a hold of her, got down to the matter that she felt overwhelmed. Ok, I can take care of that, we set up a plan to chat weekly and take things one step at a time. She was 100% on board with this and felt better- great! Not so much. Fell off the face of the earth again. Finally got a hold of her, has been going through some personal issues- financially related, very stressful, etc. I explained to her that I understood and that I was here to help her when she was ready, PC will be of great assistance overcoming her financial obstacles. But you made the commitment to try 4 shows in 90 days and if you don't think you can fulfill that let's just let the HO know- they will understand, life happens. Well, that re-motivated her. This was last week. She decided it was really time to get her butt in gear- she's 45 days into her 90 days and doesn't want to miss out on this opportunity. We set up weekly calls AGAIN, our first one was supposed to be today. She can't make new consultant training b/c of scheduling conflicts, but no big deal, I will walk her through it step by step and coach her the whole way through. I spoke with my director, we came up with a plan, I have spent the week studying the Guide To Supporting New Consultants, gave her 2 small action items last week (order your debit card and start working on your list of 100 before our call) Got an email today that she's backing out, again. I am just so disappointed. I honestly do not believe that her intent was to be a kitnapper, but there is so much drama with her right now and the amount of personal info she has shared with me about what is going on is more than normal (details about level of debt, financial situations, etc.) and it's frustrating b/c not only has she backed out on me several times, even though it's her that's said "Yes, let's do this!" every time, but this could really help her and she's just not willing to take the steps to make it happen even though she loves the company and wants to do it. I am keeping her in my thoughts and prayers that things work out for her in her life and calm down, and that she can come back in a few months or a year and say "Now I'm really ready" because deep down I believe that this is what she wants. I am blessing and releasing- just needed to get it off my chest first. Now I need to turn my focus to finding new prospects to build my team so I can reach directorship by the end of the year, b/c that's certainly not going to happen by focusing my energy on what went wrong here Ok, if you got this far- thanks for reading!
