New Consultant Happy Mail

I know I talk a lot about happy mail - that's because I LOVE it. I believe that most people get nothing more exciting in the mail than the water bill most days, so I want my customers, hostesses and consultants to be excited to open their mail and see one of my pink envelopes!

This video is about my super easy new consultant happy mail system. It's super easy to implement, and really you could use ANYTHING, as long as you're giving it meaning and it is something that makes sense from a business standpoint. I try to make my consultant happy mail something fun but also something they can actually use to better their business. Take a look:

Team Recognition Plan - 2017

For the last several years I have been recognizing my team through a monthly incentive program, where they can earn different buttons or pins for different accomplishments each month. Then, whenever they are ready to redeem, every pin they've collected is worth $5 in product credit that they can redeem through me. My girls have loved it, and it's been a great way for them to get additional product in hand when the catalog changes over and new items come out. Today I made a quick video to explain the system:

Recruiting Packets - Fun & Functional

When someone is interested in joining your direct sales business, you want to be sure you're giving them all the information they need, without overwhelming them with too many statistics, figures, facts, etc. There's a fine line between giving them the basics to get them excited, and giving them everything you've personally learned over all your years in business. Too much is just too much. In this quick video, I'm sharing my recruiting packet for's a mix of basic information and some feel good stuff that I want people to know about myself and the company.

As always, I'd love your comments, feel free to leave them below.

Hostess Happy Mail = GAME CHANGER

One of my systems I get the most questions on is my Hostess Happy Mail system. I have been doing this one for a few years now and my hostesses LOVE it, and it truly has been a game changer for me. Watch this quick video to hear why, and hear step-by-step how it's implemented.

Leave any questions in the comments...and be sure that if you decide to do this yourselves, you're making it your own. Relate it to your products, come up with some fun wording, and see how much your hostesses love you for it!

Simple Direct Sales Customer Follow-Up System

You may have heard the saying that if you're not following up with your customers, you're leaving money on the table. But yet that's one of the biggest struggles that direct sellers have - how to follow up, when to follow up...and as a result many do nothing. I admit that I was fairly guilty of that for a long time. The system that I ended up developing about a year and a half ago was a game changer - now my follow up is done practically automatically, and I don't even really have to think about it. Watch this short video to hear more about my system.

What do you think? EASY, right? I challenge you to develop your own system for following up - and then vow to do it every single week!

Why I'm Pampering Myself Like Crazy This Year

I have a confession...I'm a direct sales shopping junkie. There are just too many companies out there with products I adore. So I buy. A lot. And until recently I was a total hoarder of all things skin/beauty/pampering. Like truly, the amount of scrubs alone I have is ridiculous. And what's even more ridiculous is that I was not using them frequently because I didn't want to run out. Ahhh! Silly girl, I think I'm good, right?

And that is just a few of them...BUT, I have seen the error in my ways! I vow that this year I will (try) to stop hoarding and will actually use and love all these products that I just had to have!

Including more bath bars and body bars than any one person needs in a lifetime.

And okay, those that know me, know that in general I'm crazy organized...and I tried, really I did, with all the cute Zipper Pouches from Thirty-One, but this is officially out of control under my sink. So I vow that not only will I be using up these amazing products from Posh, Jordan Essentials, Acti Labs, Lemongrass Spa, etc. but that I will get a handle on this whole under the sink thing, and get rid of those products that I have know, the ones that have dried up, expired, etc. That WILL happen, and I'll take pics when it does. Cause no self-respecting Thirty-One chick should have a bathroom cabinet that looks like this.
Hold me accountable blog-land, I'm on it!
