building on essential choices
Strength in Simplicity
I prefer the Edge Success system when it comes to building. I've also added a bit of Neal Anderson's Starfish approach and have found that less is more when building. That works for me and I guess what each of us needs to do is find the approach we are good at and stick to it. In the Edge Success program, there is the 6-3-1 success schedule.
6 daily questions: (I've mentioned these before)
1. Who will I invite to a class or 1-on-1?
2. Who has attended a class that I will follow up with?
3. Who has enrolled that needs a membership overview?
4. Who is using the products that needs a business overview?
5. Who is building the business that I will support?
6. What will I read, watch or listen to that will help me grow as a leader?
3 weekly objectives:
1. Team call/check in with builders
2. Talk to mentor/upline and set goals
3. Teach 2-5 people
1 monthly event:
Team training or corporate event
This is just a bit of an expansion on the 2-2-2 approach which many people use:
2 new contacts daily; 2 follow ups daily and 2 classes/one-on-ones weekly.
Simple doesn't necessarily mean easy, but it does mean less work in the long run. Step out and try a new approach this month. Keep it simple. Set a few goals and share them with someone who can encourage you. Don't give up! Share, teach, enroll, repeat! All you have to do is look for opportunities and go!
If you've found success with this approach or one like it, please pass it on. Send me a note or post in the Facebook group. We can all learn from each other.
I hope you all have a blessed Christmas season. Share the gift of essential oils with those around you!
OPEN for business
With the frankincense promotion going on, it is a great time to enroll with the Home Essential kit. It is also a good time to shop at your own store and gift our amazing oils. There are some great LRP bundles below wholesale. You could even break up a few bundles or kits and gift them. From the holiday gift guide, we still have the Glamour Set available as well as the Holiday Joy oil. A Petal diffuser and Holiday Joy make a great gift! Each account can receive 4 FREE frankincense, so break up those orders in to 200pv orders. We are giving doTERRA to teachers this year. I will do Citrus Bliss hand lotion and bath bar sets or peppermint beadlets and lip balm. I also like to make OnGuard hand sanitizer and add a bit of Holiday Joy! So many ideas! Don't forget...order your 200pv before the 15th and grab the 5ml Holiday Joy and scent your own pack for FREE also!
1. Condense Information
"Keep it short and simple. Too much information can be overwhelming for people who are new to oils."
(I bring the home essentials kit, deep blue rub, LLV, serenity and balance to my classes. May add the touch kit, but my goal is to introduce and touch on the basics. Follow up will be key in showing them all the advantages to wholesale membership)
2. Simplify the message
"Concentrate on a few take-home messages and let their interest grow organically with encouragement where appropriate."
(again, follow up is key. Host a monthly, "I have oils, now what?" class)
3. Share the business
"Briefly mention the business and the benefits of sharing the oils, and let people know that it's really simple to get started with their wholesale account."
(I mention in the class, then at my "membership overview" or "kit review" meeting with new enrollee's...that good ole follow up!!)
4. Spend individual time
"Spending time with each person at the end of the class to help them choose what's best for them is critical. Make sure you have plenty of time left for this."
