What is your biggest challenge in your Urban Botanic business?

Great advice from TSF:

When I first started out as a party plan consultant I decided that the only part of the job I was going to do was to sell product, period - nothing more, nothing less. My recruiter was a strong seller and didn't focus much of her business on recruiting and so, when I told her I wasn't going to “do” that part of the business (recruiting) - she told me that was fine.

After about a year, I realized the error of my ways and went about the business of learning how to “do” that part of the business. It took me almost another full year before I had finally built a large enough team (five people) to promote to a leader in my company. And for the next several years, recruiting continued to be the area of my business that I was most challenged by.

So, I determined that recruiting would become my focus. I read every book on the topic I could get my hands on. At convention, I attended seminars offered by the leaders in our company who were experiencing the success that I desired. I picked brains, I listened in on conference calls and every time I got in my car I listened to tapes on recruiting. By becoming a serious student of the area of my weakness I eventually got better. Much to my delight and surprise I started being the leader who was asked to teach this part of the business that was once my biggest challenge.

What part of the business do you most struggle with? A CD training set is a great way to help you to focus while traveling in your car. Training and coaching calls can be customized to the area that is YOUR biggest challenge. Feed your mind by reading, listening to tapes/cds and listening to people who are achieving the success that you would like for your business. Success leaves attention!

Shawna's Note:

In the UB Book Club we're reading "Never Eat Alone" by Keith Ferrazzi. An incredible book for networking and recruiting. This is a great opportunity if you don't have a workshop scheduled Monday night.

And if you do have something scheduled for Monday nights, drop by the yahoo book club site and read the chat notes and leave your feedback on the book. We can all learn from each other, whether you are on the chat or posting by e-mail.
