Family Business

Finally my Network Marketing Business has become a family affair! After over 17 years working alongside Forever Living I had all but given up on the notion that a family member would see what I see in this business.......but sometimes things take a little time to sink in!

I have sometimes felt envious of colleagues who have developed a ‘family firm’ with relatives joining them in business. Seeing them travelling the world together on company paid trips whilst my family have been busy with their own things.

Some families instinctively want to work together and Network Marketing is a great platform for developing a family business. Forever Living is certainly built on family values and is ideal for creating that business where families can work together and play together.

My family did not immediately see what I saw in a Network Marketing. Happy to support me by using the products, there was never a glimmer of interest in working alongside me......until now!

In January a family member casually piped up that he would like to support me in my business......promoting products and attending events with me. I was delighted at this as it meant we could spend more time together. In a short space of time this developed into a stand alone business....I’m so excited!

The moral of the story? Expect the unexpected..........and never, ever give up on anyone!

New Year New You?

Will you #BeResolute in 2019?

At Forever Living UK we have a campaign to help with those New Year Weight and Fitness goals. Called #BeResolute our campaign is designed to support that goal that so many have after the season of excess........get back into shape and improve diet and digestion!

Would having a simple to follow 9, 24, 39 or more day plan available with personal support be interesting and useful to you?

Our C9 kickstart can be used as a stand alone snap focus or our FIT15 can follow on for those who need a little more help. The kits come with a mix of nutritional supplements and shakes to mix with your favourite type of milk alongside exercise tips and healthy recipes to follow......everything you need in fact!

We have found that one to one and group support is key to maintaining focus and this is part of the personal service we offer to our customers.

Our group 24 Day Shred starts on Monday 7th January.......would you like to join us?

Take a look at our products and drop me an email with any questions.......it would be great to have you join us!

 

2019 - Best Year Yet?

In the run up to the festivities there is often also a feeling of ‘is this it?’ or asking ourselves has anything changed?

This may be a general feeling of not having met goals that we set ourselves a year ago to wondering how to set goals.

When I sit down with team members to look at what they want to achieve I find that goals are often the easy bit, it’s often the how that becomes more complicated......very often life just gets in the way!

For this reason I find that breaking down actions into manageable pieces (how do you eat an elephant? .... A bite at a time!) and having a system and clear working area are paramount.

So firstly, I would look at the bigger picture....this may be the end of next year or even five years time, then break that down into smaller goals of years, months, weeks, days and even hours. The goal becomes a series of mini-goals that feel far more manageable.

Now we have our manageable goals, what else do we need?

Keeping track of  doing what we need to do is the only way we can know if we are moving forward, so I will recommend keeping planning documents and diarise activity. There are many planning systems available for this purpose and it’s worth researching something that suits your purpose and style. What will you enjoy using?

Find an accountability partner - who do you know that you can work alongside? It doesn’t have to be working on similar goals, just someone who is also on a journey of development who can help to nudge you along!

Give yourself frequent rewards.....the big picture of a distant win isn’t always enough to keep you motivated day in and day out.

Have a tidy place to work, if your office is a mess is it any wonder if your life is out of control too?

if you are working from home then do exit the door! It’s worth joining some local networking groups even if you don’t think you are looking to do business with other local businesses......you will feel refreshed, inspired and motivated by interacting with others. Maybe working in a local coffee shop once a week will give you a different outlook and open you up to meeting new people. Interaction is key to personal growth.

These are just a few of the pointers that I share when helping business owners to reach the next level in their businesses, and I’ll certainly be sharing them one to one over the next weeks as we look at plans and goals for a more successful 2019

 

If you are looking to achieve a better future for yourself and your family in the next year or so but haven’t yet found the vehicle to provide the income to support your dreams  then get in touch.....it may just be that our flexible business could suit your needs!
