You’ve done it! You’ve joined a direct sales company! That’s huge! It took time to decide which company you wanted to sell, who would be your sponsor, and how you would do your launch. That’s a lot of decisions to make! Now, you’ve probably been running your business for a minute, but you want to know more, right? What’s the next step? You need to invest in yourself. And how do you do this? It’s easy! One word. Training. You need to continue your training.
Why should you seek out more training?
Well, my friends, this is easy. You need to be a learn-it-all. Most people who start a direct sales business don’t have much of a background in business. And chances are that your company doesn’t offer all of the training’s, either. So, you need to seek out your own sources. You should constantly be looking for new opportunities to learn more because our businesses are always changing. Just think about how social media has changed in the last 15 years. AIM, MSN, and MySpace are no longer relevant. Now, what if you didn’t push yourself to learn new things, like social media platforms? And that’s just one aspect to training. What about product knowledge? New products are always coming out, so it’s best for you to stay informed.
Where can you find more training or courses?
Most companies have a back office for you. Chances are, if you do some digging, you can find all kinds of training resources in there. This is where you’re going to find product and brand specific training. My company has their own check-out and ordering systems, so there is a learning curve to those. In addition, they offer 3 different weekly training sessions. I’m sure you can find resources such as this with your company!
One of my favorite outside resources is The Socialite Suite on Facebook. Their premium group, Suite Sassy Pants, is one of the best resources I’ve found. I’m not joking. You can get so much out of the group. There is daily coaching for 10-30 minutes every Monday-Friday. And at less than the cost of dinner out, it’s worth the cost! Wanna join? Click HERE to pay and then click HERE to join the group.
Besides these Facebook groups, there are a few courses online that I feel are worth their weight in gold. I’m going to list a few of my favorite courses below:
- Winning With Pinterest
- Suite Success With Instagram
- Brand Yo’self With Graphics
- Attraction Marketing
Ok, I’ll stop now. I could go on and on with courses! I love that they’re self-paced. And once you’ve completed them, you will always have access to them.
You are the single greatest asset to your business. Why would you not invest in yourself?
