Firstly, let me disclose that I am involved with a direct sales/network marketing company and have total belief in my products, but I am not writing to push any of that, as that’s not what this article is about.
For years I tried my hardest to earn enough to quit my job, but just couldn’t make any headway to earn the big money like my upline. I couldn’t understand what I was doing wrong.
I wasn’t getting as many sales as I wanted and felt like I wasn’t able to communicate to others how great the products are. I also couldn’t seem to recruit team members as easily as others I’d met at conventions.
What was I doing wrong?? I almost gave up!
Until a lady in my downline confided in me that I had been a great inspiration to her. I was shocked! I didn’t feel like I was inspirational at all!
She said I was able to coach her when she was feeling lost and unsure of how to proceed to close sales. She said I made her feel good about what she was doing, helped her set goals and achieve those goals.
That’s when I realised what I was missing to be a success. The big money earners were succeeding because of their team, and their team was successful because they, in turn, were leaders who were able to coach their team effectively.
Even though she said I was a great coach, I knew I needed more help to be the best coach I could be, and help myself and my team become more successful.
I really had no idea what sort of training I should be doing. Someone suggested leadership training and I looked at a few courses but they were either out of my price range or didn’t seem to be what I needed.
Then I googled coaching courses because that is what I wanted to be… a great coach for my team. And wow did I find some great, and not so great, sounding courses!
I chose the Coaching Business in a Box course for two main reasons that the other courses couldn’t promise.
- I would actually be able to help myself and my team set goals and meet them
- I would be able to start coaching immediately
This course is for people who want to become a life coach, so you know it gives you all the information you need to become a successful coach. That is why I found it very useful for my business and have just used the information for me and my team to generate more sales.
I particularly liked the units on Overcoming Barriers and deleting Negative Self Talk… they came in very handy. The internet marketing training was also fantastic and I was able to apply the techniques to my network marketing business.
And now because my team is getting so many sales I now have people lining up and asking how they can be member of MY team!!
Even better if you are like me and really enjoy coaching your team, you can turn it into another side business where people pay you to be their life coach! Not only will you have great training, you will also be able to use your experience as your teams coach!
It’s win, win! More money for you, more money for your team members!
So, if you are feeling like I was and a bit lost and disheartened, or maybe the person who introduced you to your business is not the greatest leader (cause let’s face it, sometimes they’ve only been involved a week longer than you!), then it’s time to do something about it! Anyway, who else will, if you don’t? It’s your business and no-one is as interested in your business succeeding as yourself.
So take the bull by the horns, start investing in yourself to become a great team leader and coach and you’ll soon notice your team will rise with you! As they say, a rising tide lifts all boats. This course has truly increased my network marketing business to the next level. I’m recommending it to all my team, both upline and downline. It’s given me renewed confidence in my business, my team and most importantly, myself.
