Answering the Question – How Much Do You Make in Direct Sales

It happens to most of us at some point. We are just getting started and we get asked the “Dreaded Question” – How much are you making in your business?

That can be a real downer if you don’t know how to effectively deal with this question; give the person asking some good feedback and feel confident about your answer and your progress.

Here is what you want to do –

Plan a serious Business Launch – this gives you statistics that you can track and share.

Book your calendar as full as possible in the first 6-8 weeks. Or even create a 90 Day Action Plan.

Develop your income story.

Remember this – most people are asking this because they want to know what they can expect and if “this thing really works.” You don’t have to be earning $10,000 a month for there to be social proof. Making $800 in the first few weeks is enough to create significant interest among your prospects.

Here’s how you do that –

So, let’s here your business plan. Feel free to share in the comments below how you got started; how you plan to get started and how things are going for you. We an use this as a coaching platform to help others as well!

      Hi Katherine,

      Great question and the answer is – YES, there is hope for you. Like all of us, it does require the willingness to get out of your comfort zone. It’s not always easy but it is worth it. Am important step in this is doing what we call “detaching from the outcome.”

      You are sharing something you believe in and are passionate about. Not everyone will feel the same way. So share, without worrying about whether any one person “gets it”, too!

      With your warm market and friends, you might even say – “You know how shy I am. I am working on developing my own business and working to fight my feelings of shyness. Would you help me and let me practice on you and perhaps get some pointers from you on my presentation and such?”

      You never know where it might lead.

      Success is mostly about developing your skill set and that takes repetition. Practice and see what happens!

      EXPECT Success!
