Stay organized, stay focused, GROW
Putting in lots of hard work and effort will result in your E. EXCEL business growing quickly. Follow these tips to ensure your E. EXCEL business growth is smooth and controlled!
Educate your network
Education is the first step in creating a knowledgeable, effective network. Learning about E. EXCEL's products, the science of Nutritional Immunology, and the opportunity available to every Distributor will make you more able to answer questions confidently. It's important to stay well informed so that people will turn to you for answers and you can build trusting, long-lasting relationships. By taking on more responsibility in your group by doing things like hosting meetings you will solidify your position as a leader and build a trusting, loyal team.
Very often technology leads us to communicate in lazy, ineffective ways. It's important to ensure that you use the right channel to communicate with your team. Do you need to remind your team about a training meeting this weekend? Sending a group text to all attendees would suffice, but that isn’t always the case. If a team member is struggling, a phone call, or even better – a face-to-face meeting, is the most sincere way you can show that you’re there to help!
Growing a business is hard work! Unlike a corporation with lots of staff, E. EXCEL Distributors must be their own accountants, secretaries, and bosses. It's important to stay organized so that you aren’t hindered with messy recordkeeping. Be sure to make a work zone for yourself. This space should be a place where you can work comfortably without distraction and have access to all the tools you need. Be sure to keep all materials used for records, like order forms, neatly organized and filed so that you can refer to them when necessary. It's not often that you will need to look back on previous work, but when you need to, you'll be happy that you can find everything easily.
Starting any new endeavor is challenging. When new people are brought into your network they will need lots of coaching and help. It's important that you take the time to help each person brought into your network get off to a great start with responsible coaching. It might be easy to focus on relationships that you have already built, but those new relationships are the most important to nurture. Taking the time to meet with new members personally, listen to their concerns, answer their questions, and teach them about E. EXCEL products and Nutritional Immunology will energize them and make them a valuable asset to your group. It's also important to be truthful with new members when discussing the products, the E. EXCEL opportunity, and the amount of work it takes to be a successful E. EXCEL Distributor.
Set and manage goals
Oftentimes goals can seem far away, distant, and unachievable. When it seems easy to give up take a moment to step back and see the cause of your stress. More often than not a lack of planning and no clear goals is the root cause of these feelings. Whether your goals are small, “Contact four clients this week”, or large, “Sign up 40 new COE's this month”, without clearly stating them and writing down the steps necessary to achieve them, you’ll have a hard time being successful. Creating a plan with steps allows you to break a large goal into easier to manage tasks that give you a sense of accomplishment when completed. This satisfaction spurs on more energy to complete more goals and grow your business!
