How to work your Business Part Time
As for myself and most of the people starting out in our profession, we start our business part time. Therefore Part Time Network Marketer’s make up the largest majority of our
profession. However, don’t be fooled, though! It is very possible to build a full time business with part time effort.
Many, especially women, struggle with time management between taking care of the kids, the house, the dog, the family life and building our business. I would like to give you some ideas on how to make to most of a part time effort, which has worked for 100’s of my team members and myself included.
Some ideas to make the most of a part time effort:
1. Every Sunday evening, block out your calendar for those time
slots that you have available to work your business. This may mean
sacrificing a few things like TV for 4 hours a night, lunch out
with the work gang, etc.
2. Make every moment count. Again, focus. If you block out 5 to 10
hours per week, you must make the most of that time. That is not
the time you spend lost in email; listening to company voice mail,
opening mail, designing a flyer, etc. This is time that is spent
doing one of three things – presenting your business, asking
someone new to take a look, or following up with someone who has
seen it. That’s it
3. You must have a simple, duplicable and organized system for
working through your contact list. Let the tools of your business
do the work for you.
4. Be consistent and persistent. Honor your business time and
demand that others honor it, too. Get your calls out of the way
early on, so you can relax and enjoy the rest of your day, doing
5. Learn your business and the compensation plan, and develop a
quick 5-10 minute presentation for explaining it. Don’t worry about
knowing every fine details of the compensation plan. Know how to
explain how to earn a couple hundred to one thousand dollars extra
NOTE to self: “A full time effort has nothing to do with the hours available in
the day.It’s what you do with that time that counts!”
