You can be part-time in your Direct Sales – Network Marketing business, and be successful, but you can not be “spare time” and be successful. Momentum only comes through consistency.
Maybe you only have 5 hours per week to put toward your business. That’s okay. But, schedule that time. Get it in your day-timer and honor it, consistently.
Set up your calendar week by week, allocating time each day to work your MLM business. To do this, sit down on Sunday evening and plan your week. Mark down everything else in your “real” life that has to be done and then schedule in your business time after that. Then, honor that time and get busy.
Get organized from Day 1. This will help you immensely. Make sure you have a day-timer where you can write important scheduled events such as company conference calls, follow up phone calls to prospective partners, etc.
Also, get a notebook with dividers so you can keep track of important information on your company and business. I know this is the computer age, but sometimes you’ll need that info at your fingertips immediately.
I print off a lot of information on my leads and contacts for my business and keep them in a binder so I can grab the binder and make phone calls while I am waiting at kid’s activities, in traffic or wherever I might find a spare minute.
Squeeze in every possible minute you can to work your business. Give up TV, reading the newspaper, chatting endlessly on the phone, etc.
Sit down with your family and explain your needs to them with regard to your business. Ask for their support and assistance in honoring your business time.
Let people know that you have a business and are unavailable during your “business hours.”
