In direct selling, many people sign up with their friends and when their friends quit the business, they often do the same, People also sign up casually to test out the products and not really committed to building the business. Since the business kits typically come with great products for as little as $79 (more or less) it's a great value to join just for the business kit. It could also be the case of making the right decision at the time with the knowledge you had but in hindsight it wasn't the best decision for you.
I've written in previous posts that we don't always know what's really behind the scenes of the direct selling company you've partnered with unless you're officially a consultant and have access to the training, support, and get a feel for the culture of the company. I remember another direct sales friend of mine saying there was just something about some of the consultants in her company that rubbed her the wrong way so she left.
If you don't feel good about the products or company you're not going to stick around long term much less being successful at it. Things can also change with your direct sales company beyond your control which is another common reason why people quit the business or go to another company.
There are many reasons, sometimes beyond you, as to why you didn't find the success you were looking for. I've heard stories of many women that was with several companies without much success until they found the one. The point of this post is to encourage you to be okay with your progress if you haven't found the success you've hoped for. You get to build your business on your own time.
The best part about the direct selling industry is that there are so many wonderful companies to choose from. I think some of us get a bit weary of joining multiple companies but frankly, it's better to try and fail and not try at all. Risks is a big part of an entrepreneur's journey.
Think of yourself in a job. If you're in a job and it didn't fulfill you, you'll probably start looking for something else. It would make sense you would do the same if you're a business owner or a direct sales consultant.
As you look ahead for the rest of June, heading into summer, and wondering how to make the most of the latter part of 2015- I hope you'll be encouraged by this post to try again in your direct selling business. I can't think of another business with such wonderful products, opportunity to meet new people and offers so much flexible.
