Feeling Stuck in Your Party Plan Business?

Are you a party plan consultant struggling to stay motivated in your business? Well you're not alone. Even people in regular jobs feel unmotivated at times. The difference is that it can be harder for you  because as an independent consultant you know there's no one keeping tabs on what you're doing in your business. So it's up to YOU to keep tabs on your business which isn't always easy.

I was watching a fantastic video by Brendon Burchard on How Successful Think (you can find it on YouTube). There are numerous books and info on how successful think but Brendon's video really nailed because he outlined real steps you can take to help you get where you need to be. There were many terrific points he shared but the one that stuck with me the most was successful people don't stop. If they don't know how to do something, they find a way and figure out how to do it. The video inspired me to write this post on why it's so hard for consultants in the party plan business to stay motivated, consistently.

The flexibility of a party plan business is attractive for many stay at home parents or people looking for something to do on the side. But too much flexibility can create lack of discipline. I know not everyone who signs up is serious about working the business. But if you're one of those serious business builders, how do you stay motivated on a consistent basis until you achieve your ultimate goal?

For me, I had to do decide to be committed. That doesn't mean I'm spending all my time on the business. But it means you're making a decision to do what you need to do when you set aside the time to do it. Making a conscious decision to commit to your business until you reach a certain goal is a powerful step.

For most stay at home parents doing this business, it's not their first priority, because they chose this business because they're already stay at home parents and this business offers the flexibility to work around their family schedules. It's not always lack of time why you might be stuck. It's about deciding to commit to your business and making time for your party plan business.

So does it mean to be committed? Be committed to working on your business on a consistent schedule until you achieve your goals.  For example, if you're writing articles, commit to writing and publishing articles on a regular schedule.

It's not hard to get bored in this business or feel disillusioned but if you love the products you're using, the company, and believe in your success, just keep on being consistent on what it is you're doing to build your business. Do something every single day, every week, every month until you reach your goals.

As always, would love to hear your thoughts.

'til next time, keep on direct selling.
