OTHER NEWS, INFORMATION & TRAINING TIPS
Download Voxer, Please!
Voxer is an app that was recommended to us at Leadership Summit. Think of it as voice texting, but in a way that works for any phone - not just iPhones. It allows people to do business on-the-go, without having to arrange a time to talk on the phone, without having to wait for the phone to ring or for voicemail to answer. It also allows you to avoid typing lengthy texts or emails, it eliminates the misunderstanding that can come with written "tone" - or lack thereof - and it gives you the opportunity to chat with someone at any time, without interrupting them....even if it's early in the morning or late at night.
You can communicate by voice, text, photo or video and it makes conducting business with your team and fellow consultants extremely efficient! It also makes your time in the car very productive, while at the same time being a safe app to use while driving.

Wise Words from Our Managing Director, Michelle Skinner:
I am working with Michelle Skinner on a small group initiative, and she had some wise words to share with those small groups. I thought they were good enough reminders to pass on to everyone:
- There are no excuses allowed. We all have things that happen, we all have busy lives, we all find other things to do with our time, have kids, work another job... but let's leave the excuses at the door and come with value added advice, ideas, communication, and support! You will be able to do what works for you and your life and that's all anyone expects! ;)
- On that note...leave negativity behind. You don't want people to feel sorry for you and your situation, that's not what this is about. Once again, this is to HELP you and your business, so let's have fun, be encouraging, happy, and helpful! Yes?
Let's have a great April everyone, looking forward to seeing what this team can do!!
Face Kits: A Core Component of This Business
Look at your 100-Person List, and create a schedule for who is going to get your face kit. You don't need to ask...Just give it to them! Say something like, "I brought my products for you to take for a test run for a couple days! You are going to love them....I can't wait to hear what you think!" Then, get the products back in 3-4 days. Any longer and you run the risk of them not getting used, because the prospective client feels no urgency.
*NOTE: Face Kits are FULL-SIZED products that you lend out. Our tiny sample sets are great to have with you for spontaneous interactions and/or for mailing to those who aren't local. But the most EFFECTIVE way to help someone fall in love with our products is to lend them the FULL-SIZED versions - to use in their own bathrooms for a couple of days.
Here is a great video from Laura Stenovec, in which she talks more about how face kits work.
