Time Management in Direct Sales - The Basics

When having your own business time management is very important.  It is key to know where you are spending your time and to make sure you are spending it wisely and the day doesn't come to an end and you are left thinking "What the heck did I do all day"  In my 7 years as a Thirty-One consultant I have really had to set some priorities and learned to manage my time very well.  If you are like me you wish there were more hours in the day to get done all you need to.  
It seems there are usually more things to do then there are hours in the day.  Time management is essential in all  areas of life, especially if you’re running a direct sales business from your home.  Below I have outlined 10 key steps in managing your time effectively and not wonder at the end of the day "What the heck did I do all day"?

What are some of your top time management tips. Let's share

Getting organized with your business

Often times I am asked by other consultants, particularly new ones about how I organize my business.  They wonder how I manage to get things done and stay on top of everything I have going on and work my business.  The truth is I am a systems girl.  I love systems and organization.  I want to share with you the systems that I personally use for my business starting with my filing cabinet. You may or may not decide to use the same exact files but these will give you a base of what I have and them you can set them up for yourself according to your needs at this current time. I find them to be easy to maintain, so I wanted to share them.

To start off I have a very organized file system.  This is simply a drawer in my desk that I have everything I need at my fingertips.  The files may be different for you however for me and my business they are quite simple.  


 What other files would you add to your drawer? I love to collaborate and get ideas so please comment below and share some ideas.  The next system I am going to be talking about is my e-mail system.  Stay Tuned...

Mail Time!! Let's get real we all dread going to the mailbox because it is always without a doubt full of bills from people looking for money for us or pounds of junk mail that we never look through unless a pizza coupon catches our eye and we can't fathom making dinner tonight and ordering a pizza sounds like a fabulous idea, right? How did I know...because I'm the same way!  If you and I are like that than the chances of our hostesses and customers being like that are pretty high!!
What if we could make one of the most dreaded tasks - getting the mail to only see bills a little more enjoyable for our hostesses and customers? Well you can..... ENTER HAPPY MAIL!!! Ta Da!
