Direct Sales Pay Check

Posted on February 13, 2015. Filed under: Direct Selling Rules | Tags: , , , |

Did you know that there are RULES about posting about your Direct Sales Pay Check?

 If you are in a direct sales or network marketing company, your policies and procedures forbid product and or financial claims. Don’t believe me? Go read ‘em. Trust me, it’s in there. Especially if you sell any type of product that is supposed to go in or on the body, this is HUGE for you. Companies AND their distributors (yes, you read that right…distributors too) have been fined MILLIONS of dollars for making improper product claims. This applies to all kinds of things: what you post in a blog, customer testimonials, statements on your Facebook page…all of it.

  • And… The Rules Are Even STRICTER when if comes to Financial Claims! What’s important to know…. the thing about social media is that all those regulatory bodies (FTC, FDA, etc) can easily find out when you’re making those claims. Even if you are absolutely convinced that your product cured your cancer, you can’t say it. Even if you really did make a lot of money… you can’t say it. Why not?
    WHY? Well, because if you make a statement about your product that has not been filed with the FDA, and the FDA finds out, the FDA could require your company to stop selling that product and seize all the stock of that product. Seriously. And then your product can’t help anybody.
    And… if you make a public statement (post your pay stub or show it to somebody) about your pay, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and the Department of Justice can both come after you.  bBoth view this as a big no no too and can, yes can, and DO fine companies millions. But…. you can be fined too…. top distributors who have ‘shared’ their pay check info online or in person have also been fined – upto $1 million. Do you have a million $?
    Shhh… don’t answer that!

The Business Benefits of Good Attitude and Strong Belief

Posted on March 23, 2012. Filed under: Attitude, Beleif, How To Grow Your Direct Sales Team, Tips for your business | Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

Attitude and belief may be the biggest obstacles in your business.

There are many different ways of describing the phenomenon. You can call it The SECRET, the Law of Attraction, blind faith, ignorance on fire or Simple Luck, but the fact remands that nearly ALL of us has experienced the benefits of this kind of wishful thinking.

So, what’s your story? How has your attitude and or beliefs helped you in your business?

  Heather Nickless I try to keep a ‘can do’ attitude. I try to keep all negativity out of my thinking. I work better towards my goals when I believe I can do it so I try to always believe I can. It has definitely helped make my business sucessful including having people with the ‘can do’ attitude on my team.

  Natalie Karen Boecker Who said, “Whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you are right.” ?? So, why not think you can? I believe in always focusing on the positive, in all areas of my life. It sure brings better results, and keeps everyone happier!

Thanks Heather and Natalie! The common theme in both of your Success Stories is the idea that “you can do it”.  Believing in yourself, being able to see your success will bring you closer to ALL your goals than any training or seminar.

It’s amazing how every successful person can tell you a story of how they came from nothing and just knew in their heart they would make it.  That strong belief and positive attitude can ride any storm in your business.  It can keep you focused, help you get past distractions and through downfalls.

Normally, I follow the rule about not mixing business and with poltics and or religion, but I willing to risk it to share this story:

Last Sunday we were sitting at church. There was a visiting preacher.  In the bulletin, I could see that his sermon was  titled, “Finders Celebrate, Losers Complain”.  Of coarse when I saw the word “Finders”, being FindSalesRep.com I clued in, sat up straight and paid close attention.  There where many stories about great people who went out to ‘find’ the meek, the broken, the worthy, the deserving, those that maybe didn’t ‘have it all together’ but had a good attitude and were willing to try to believe.

Then there were stories about people that pretended they ‘had it all’, that ‘talked the talk’, while condemning others and complaining.  The preacher warned to watch out for Losers.  That they would bring you down, hurt your business and your relationships.  He told us that we could recognize them by all their complaining. lol

The preacher told us to look for the the celebrators!    “Get them in your life and in your business!”  Funny, how that message echoed in my Business life, I thought.  My husband and I have had great success in Direct Sales.  We are successful not only because we know how to generate leads but because we always look for CELEBRATORS!  We bring them in to our lives and in to our business.  Having Celebrators around is Good For You and GOOD FOR BUSINESS!  There’s NO Complaining and Anything is Possible!

So my advice:  Look for the Celebrators!  Look for the ones who always have a new idea, a compliment and an encouraging message!

If you have some advice, we would love to hear your story!  Please leave your tips in the comments:
