Dear Gloria -

Thanks for your question, it is a good one.

First of all, you need to know you are far from alone. Many of our subscribers work full or part time jobs outside the home alongside their home party businesses.

We have found that they are probably more successful with their home businesses, because they have a limited amount of time to work. I know from personal experience that when I have more to do in less time - I am more productive. How about you?

The key to juggling two jobs; is organization.

Always carry your list of phone calls to make with you. Take advantage of your commute by making calls and also use your lunch hour to be in touch with customers and team members. You will probably find that you are more effective and efficient with your phoning because you have a list AND because your time is limited.

Having a portable file box with you in your car with pre-stuffed hostess and recruiting packets will help you be prepared to do business anytime and anywhere. Take advantage of the networking opportunities that your job presents whenever possible; always being careful not to step on toes with your employer.

Finally, we at TSF encourage you to build a sizeable team (75-100+) as quickly as possible. You will find that the residual income created when your team is at this size will become the steady paycheck that you need from your direct sales business. Once your team has grown to this size, it may be that you will no longer need that “paycheck job”.

Shawna's Note:

This post was really helpful for me because I realize that SIZE does matter LOL and that the larger the team the better your paychecks will be! At a team of 43 my commission checks (off of the team not my own personal volume) are around $200 - $300 a month depending. So I can see currently what I need to do in order to get the point I'm making the Beach House payment (my first goal with UB) on a monthly basis. A team of 100 is the first stsep and I'm almost 1/2 way there in just a little over a year!
