To be honest, before we started our social selling businesses, we were stay at home moms. Both former school teachers but no experience with sales or leading large organizations whatsoever (unless you count trying to get 5th graders to clean up their desk area!)
We started our businesses not realizing at all what was possible. As soon as we realized the potential of a social selling business, we went full steam ahead and sought out all the training, courses, conferences, and coaching we could get our hands on. (Translation: We spent a LOT of money and even more time.)
Within 6 months, we both had million dollar teams and had developed skills and talents we had no idea were hiding behind the diaper changes and Cheerios. We were hooked on this industry.
Since then, our teams have sold more than $20 million in products and we’ve reached the top ranks. At the end of Hilarry’s first full fiscal year in social selling, she ended the year as the #2 distributor in her company. We don’t say this to brag, but to let you know that if these Big Gulp drinking stay at home moms can have success, so can you. And even better for you, you can learn from our mistakes and the thousands of dollars and years that we spent figuring it all out!
