Have you thought about starting a direct sales business? Is there a product you are really passionate about and want to take advantage of the discounts by signing up? Most times, the issue of the start up kit cost is a conversation that happens between a husband and wife. The initial investment into a direct sales business can be scary. Will you see a return on that investment? How much of a risk are you willing and financially able to take? In the event you are ready to take the plunge but, your husband is not, here are 5 conversation starters you can use that will change his mind!
“The cost of one Target trip can jumpstart my direct sales business”
If you are anything like me, a simple trip to Target can turn into a $150 excursion. Did I really just buy 5 boxes of K-Cups to get the $5 Target Card? Most times, a cost of a start up kit is easily compared to one trip to Target. Make the comparison and show the value of what will come from your new direct sales adventure!
“I’m looking forward to connecting with other women”
Entering the world of direct sales can open yourself up to new friendships and make this a key point of your conversation. As a stay at home mom, I know that adult interaction is sometimes limited to the checkout lady at, you guessed it, Target, or the other mom at the park running after her 4-year-old and carrying a tantrum throwing 2-year-old in her arms. With direct sales, your circle of friends grows and your network of supporting women expands.
“I enjoy learning new things and challenging myself”
Think of the new skills you will learn! Direct sales is a business and simple fact, you will learn new skills about marketing, customer service, organization, and a whole plethora of helpful tips and tricks. Keeping current with technology and business is one thing you can take with you in your future business endeavors.
“I’m itching to do something new and exciting, something I have never done before”
As a mom, you feel if you are not devoting 110% of your time to your kids you are not doing your job. Creating your own direct sales business from the ground up is something your children will see that you did for yourself. They will be proud to see their mom create, grow, and be successful.
“I’ll have the opportunity to bring in extra income that can be used for…”
The extra monthly income is definitely a perk. The success you find from your direct sales business is directly related to the work you put into it. The sky is the limit! Expand on what you would love your income to go to. A vacation fund? More activities for the kids? More date nights out? Share your goals for your direct sales business!
