This past weekend I attended the closing ceremony of a leadership seminar that my high school sophomore attended. I happened to catch something one of the directors mentioned to the students in his remarks. He reminded them that there was no box. I sat there in the audience and had a ‘light-bulb moment’. I have been thinking and saying to sales consultants that they need to think outside the box when it comes to looking for growth opportunities. After thinking about it I realized that the most successful sales consultants run their business as if there was no box – ever! Imagine if you were to look at your business without any limitations, never allowing yourself to be boxed in by anyone or anything. What would that feel like to you? The only person who puts limits on what you can achieve with your business is YOU. Limitations are self-imposed because for every roadblock there is a detour that still takes you to your destination. So how do you have a THERE IS NO BOX attitude? Here is what I have learned:

If you want to have a prosperous and growing business you have to be committed to do what it takes. Commitment to the company mission and your own personal goals will help you ride the ups and down in a direct sales business. Commitment goes hand and hand with passion. Are you passionate about what you do? Are you having fun helping women enjoy the jewelry? Are you proud of what you do? Are you excited to share this company with others? There will always be challenges we face from time to time in our personal business and thankfully the growing pains we have experienced as a company are normal as well and will soon pass. Those who remain committed to our company and its mission will experience unlimited growth potential as we move forward. Choose to be committed to your business!

Be competent! This means that you need to learn all that you can about your jewelry as well as how to effectively run your business. There are so many opportunities to learn with Inspiranza that there simply are no excuses to not have knowledge. Don’t reinvent the wheel – learn from the leaders who are willing to share!

Commitment and competence lead to confidence! If you have ever been part of a team raising money for a favorite charity or cause you will know what I mean! When you are committed to raising money for breast cancer awareness because your mother has battled breast cancer - you are unstoppable. If your child is sick with an illness you do not stop until you have found the answers you need and the appropriate treatment – you are unstoppable. Get the picture? When you put that same level of commitment and competence into your business you will be confident and UNSTOPPABLE. You will not be thinking of ideas that are ‘outside the box’ because for you THERE IS NO BOX!
