Tips for Success from Your Leaders
Top 5 Tips for a Fast, Successful Start.
Wendi Green is about to celebrate her 3 year anniversary with R+F and she has almost 20K C's in her Organization! (and her paycheck is in the upper 6 figures...a MONTH)
HOLY &%*#BALLS BATMAN! This woman is a major girl crush, and a dynamite leader. Learn from the success before you - she's clearly doing something right! Here are some of her tips for getting started fast & strong
#1) Set 2-3 BBL’s in your first 30-60 days to give your guests attendance options. Setting two dates let's you set your self up for success right away by spreading out your PC orders over multiple months, and gets you talking about the business to prospects while your business partner is there to support you. If you have more than one geographical area where you know people, set up BBLs in all those places.
#2) Make your List and make it BIG. Use the Memory Jogger (located in Pulse), scroll through your phone, through your FB friend list, high school year book, whatever. Don't pre-judge people, just write them down and share. Send out 200 messages in your first 60 days. That’s 25 a week… 3-5 a day. If you aren’t willing to reach out to 3-5 people a day about this, it’s going to take your business a lot longer to get off the ground. If that seems crazy, think about it like this: if this was a 9-5 job and you were hired to reach out to just 3-5 people a day about your company, could you do it? Absolutely. This will become your first lesson in "treat it like a business and it will pay like a business. Treat it like a hobby, and it will pay like a hobby".
- I wanna pause here to say that Wendi's advice is phenomenal, and IF you are looking to replace a Full Time Job or grow a substantial, life changing paycheck this is the advice you need to follow. But, if you just want to do this as a hobby and make $500 a month, thats cool too. Scale it back if that seems overwhelming. Just make sure your activity is matching your goals and you will never be disappointed.
- We are here to support you no matter if your goals is to make $500 a month or $50K a month. Be clear about what YOU want and share that with your direct. That's the best way we can scale our support & advice to match what you want.
#3) In the first 30 days focus on bringing your direct at least 15 three-way calls.
Not only is this crucial to building your business, it's the best training you can find. Listening to your upline talk about this business and handling objections will train you to do the same. You don't have to know everything to grow a team - all you need is excitement about the opportunity. We will help you grow but you are the only one who can bring the calls.
#4) Listen to Training Calls — find one and listen every week. This is crucial to your business. If you truly want to be successful, become a student of this business. Learn about the products, the history, the business model. Listen to the people who have been successful before you, learn from them. Romi Neudstadt has a call every Sunday Night that features a different topic each week - I really enjoy them.

#5) Consistency is EVERYTHING. If there is one personal lesson I could pass to you it would be this one. You have all the excitement to build up your "Activity Muscle". Its like this. If you don't workout for 3 weeks, that first workout back in the gym feels like - WOOF. But, if you do a little something every day, even if its just a power walk - you will be a lot closer to your fitness goals & a big workout won't be such a killer. Same is true for your business. Even if you can't do as much as you would like, just do SOMETHING every. single. day.
Get in the habit of setting goals (daily, weekly, monthly), writing them down & checking in with your direct each week. Here's an example of my ongoing goals:
Daily - reach out to 3 new people, follow up with 2 people
Weekly - one FB post about R+F, one event (R+F) & one social event to expand my network
Monthly - Check in with existing PC's, Powershot with my direct & my team
