Are you looking to make some extra income while still being at home with your kids? Have you considered direct sales but aren’t sure where to start or how to choose? Here are over 40 direct sales companies that are perfect for moms, plus some tips to for success!
We all have that friend who has sold everything (for my friends it’s me!!) you might also have the friend who sells something and is super successful with it! (I know one of the top Mary Kay reps in the country, she is amazing!) I’d also imagine at some point since becoming a stay at home mom you’ve toyed around with the idea of joining a company. Maybe you want some extra money but lots of flexibility, maybe you want something to get you out of the house a couple of nights a week, maybe you want something that you can grow and be successful.
The great thing about this day and age is that there are so many opportunities to be a direct sales person even if you are in introvert or can’t get out of the house. Facebook parties are huge, social media is a great way to spread awareness, you can even start a blog about your products and experience with them! While in home parties are always fun, and usually have great sales, they are no longer the only way to approach direct sales!
Whatever your reason for wanting to join a company there are things you want to consider before signing up that will help you be successful in the long run!
#1- Pick a company that you are passionate about – I can’t stress this enough! There are so many companies out there that you can find one that gets you super excited. Maybe their products have been a godsend to you, maybe you love their mission, maybe it’s something that is super fun for you, whatever your reason make sure the company you pick gets you fired up and excited! (Scroll down for an awesome list of companies!) Make sure to take into consideration start-up costs, and commission rates they vary from company to company.
#2- Make sure you have great leadership- Leaders can make or break your direct sales experience. You might have a friend who wants you to sign up but ask about her leaders first, meet them if you can. You want leadership that gives great training and support, that helps you get off to a strong start, and helps you meet your goals! Make sure the leaders you’re signing up under are successful themselves and are equally as passionate about the company as you are!
#3- Get all the training you can– Once you sign up take advantage of the trainings most companies offer. Even if you only want to make a little money or just plan on selling casually. The more knowledge you have the better you’ll do no matter how big or small your goals.
#4- Set goals and don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone- One of the big things that keeps people from getting their goals is being afraid! Signing up for a direct sales company and achieving success might push you a little outside what you are comfortable with, but that’s ok! Take baby steps and keep your goals in mind, that will help you push yourself!
