What is Direct Sales?
Can An Average Person Make Money In Direct Sales?
In a conversation I had recently, about direct sales with my friend and business partner Todd Gragg, we exposed some lies and shared some wisdom about direct sales. The conclusion we came to is that we those entering into direct sales must take responsibility for the success that is at their disposal with the leadership training offered. Whether in direct sales, network marketing and MLM’s both online and off, leaders are being developed in these organizations and teams of leaders are being trained help others coming in after them to make money and achieve levels of success expected from companies of this sort.
Direct Sales and The Poverty Mindset
There are still some individuals who see the words MLM, Network Marketing, Direct Sales, Multilevel Marketing as pyramid schemes.The Direct Selling industry is a billion dollar industry. There are nearly 5000 direct sales companies presently. All these companies are governed by the federal trade commission. If their was something illegal going on, the industry would be shut down. But it’s NOT!
All MLM’s, networking marketing, internet marketing and affiliate marketing is the same thing. Direct Sales.
Direct Sales And People Skills
So you’ve come online to generate income and you say you don’t want to deal with people? So do you know what you just said? You may as well leave the online industry because it’s all about PEOPLE! The beauty of this industry is that “the whole is greater than the sum of it’s parts“..
You can leverage people to create an income without the costs of franchising on your own. Companies have already laid out the big costs and you’re income is directly related to the work you put into any program.
You are the owner of your company or “brand”. Posture yourself as a leader. Who do you listen to? Kevin Trudeau says it best. “Listen to those who have what you want“. If you want wealth, listen to someone who is wealthy. If you want wisdom,
listen to someone who have the results a wise man has. If you want specific leaderships skills, listen to a leader who’s track record proves their leadership.
Direct Sales Business Investment
You tell me you haven’t the money to get started in a direct sales company. There are companies which cost little to nothing to be part of. I joined them in my learning process before I found one that I felt I wanted to stick with. Don’t be afraid to experiment. The most important thing is developing your skills as a leader so that your investment is worth it. Your team will benefit from your self development.
The way to get the knowledge is to sacrifice something in order to achieve the great gains that the wisdom of a mentor and self development training will give you. In the end, you will have not only a prosperous mindset but a prosperous wallet as well.
Direct Sales is a model that works for an average people like myself, who was a stay at home mom turned online marketing entrepreneur. I came to realize that if I were to become wealthy in my purse, I had to strongly desire to develop leadership skills. Anyone who thinks like an average person will indeed prosper when they begin to trust that Direct Sales is a legitimate way to generate wealth over time and become above average.
