Amie's Jewels of Wisdom

Are you looking for opportunities to grow your business every day by meeting new people?

  • Reconnect with past friends, hosts and customers
  • Kids school (new grade new parents)
  • Kids sports (new season, new team, new sport and new parents)
  • Work your JOB
  • Upcoming event/occasion (people you don’t know)

What activities and/or actions are you doing in your day to day living that would support your business?

What Partner Brands and/or products do you love “A must have”? Then who do you know that would love to try them?

Find new prospects as you live in your day to day world, who are they?

  • Bank teller
  • Stylist
  • Checkout clerks
  • Sales person
  • Teachers
  • Barista
  • Waitress
  • Person in front or behind you in line

Challenge yourself to meet at least 1 new person a day that you could add to your - Business page, VP group or even Team page. A minimum of 1 a day that’s about 30 new prospects/customers a month that you could add. Do that for 3 months and you’ll have up to 90 new prospects/customers in your business.

Imagine what your business would look like if you talked to 2, 3 or 5 a day. The growth potential can be unending.

Now is the times to be looking for and signing up for Fall Festivals and Holiday Boutiques. Make sure you are where others are shopping.

Start with a goal and plan - How many customers do you want/need, and in what time frame (by when)? How many prospects are you sharing with and how many need to say “YES” (to being your customer, host or new team member)? How many connections do you need to generate a day? Know what you need at all times in order to evaluate where you are and what you still need to do. Ask yourself the important questions like; what do I need to accomplish this month - Sales, Host and NEW Team Members?

Recognize that Sales is a process - Sales is changing rapidly, but some things will always be the same. The objective is to get customers to do that  you’ll have to establish their needs and interest in your products then decide to make the sale.

Measure every step - Anything worth doing is worth measuring and anything that can be measured can be improved. Don’t wait until it’s too late to reach your numbers this month. If you measure everything you do you’ll be able to solve problems as they arise.

Sell to people who want to buy -Reaching out to people who don't respond and/or reply  will not do or add anything to your business . Spend your time connecting with people who want to hear what you have to say.

You know the old saying “If you can’t change the people, change the people”

Gemstra Consultant Corner

"I have a level 1 that just signed up on 8/20/2017. His name is Sean Carter and he is incredible!! He actually was a consultant a while ago, but had to step away for a time due to health reasons and such. Well, he's back with a vengeance!! He hosted his launch party LIVE on Facebook pretty much exactly like Amie just talked about in our training Wednesday night and in 45 minutes did well over $600 in orders and finished up the entire party with over $900!!"
