Yes I thought that would be the case but don't worry you are now part of an amazing team that is here to support you along the way. So the first few months are the hardest and there is a lot of learning to do and skills to master while working out the best way for YOU to build your business. So to help we have put together a guide for your first few months in the business.  I have included as many resources as I could find and a step by step guide to get you on your journey. If you have any questions your first port of call is your mentor, they are there for you in every way and will catch up with you regularly in the weeks to come. Refer back to this guide whenever you need it and if you think of anything that needs to be here to help others let me know!

STEP 1 - Learn Learn and Learn some more! There are a few resources for this step and it is most probably the most important stage.

  • Your new distributor box has so much in it, products, leaflets, brochures, a book and so much more.  Go through it and explore, learn what the products do, look at the whole range available in the brochure, how does the brochure explain each product and start trying them out.

  • Inside your box is your first steps to manager book, inside here you will find a whole host of information about how to build your business, go through and take it all in.  

  • Impact Global - This is our upline team and the amazing Michelle and James that run this team have put together an amazing site that has soo much information for you. You will have a personalised log in to get to access just follow this link Team impact

  • Once you have access to the website go to the training tab and go to getting started, here you have a step by step process to go through. Follow it, watch the videos and take on the advice and training here. 

  • Use your first step to managers book, get your head around the business cycle and start to understand case credits. 

  • Make sure you have a meeting with you mentor (sponsor) arranged and you get as much of this done before then. 


STEP 2 - Learn Learn and Learn some more about retailing! 

  • The products are the most important part of the business so it is important to know as much as you can about them.  Unfortunately with so many products available from forever living it's hard to know everything about all of them. 

  • So learn as much as possible about the products and how to sell them head over to the team impact page once again and head to the retailing tab

  • This is also a great time to go through the mastering the basics tab in the training page of impact global, this is a weekly set of training videos to get your skills and mindset on track.

STEP 3 - Start making some notes on how you believe you will run your business.  

  • Start making ideas on how you will sell, prospect, advertise and how you will do your marketing.   

  • Look over the first steps to manager book for clues and advice   Write down some activities you can do to get your business going. 

  • Document your goals, include dates and timelines against the specific levels of the business plan e.g. when will you become supervisor?

  • Start working on your mindset, it's a very important factor in building your business. 



STEP 4 - Find your retail niche, choose specific products to know inside out. 

  • Write down the products, what problems they solve, how you would talk to people about them. Start talking to friends and family about what you are doing, if they want to know more and if they want to try products.

  • Try not to start posting on social media until you have a social media plan to ensure you look professional. The impact global page has great information on the training page with a facebook course

  • Follow the facebook course make a business page on FB, thinking about your target market and how you wish to sell yourself. 



STEP 5 - Business Strategy and planning. 

  • Talk to your mentor and make a business plan.  Nearly all small business require a business plan to gain investment and support.  You are a small business owner and you are no different, remember failing to plan is planning to fail. 

  • Your plan just needs to be very simple but documented (single A4 page) and include things like your mission/goals, your 2-3 year vision,  Strategy (actions you will be taking), timeline of actions/goals, marketing strategy (e.g social media, dear neighbour letters, launches), advertising strategy (paid routes of getting your name out). This is a formal version of the ideas in step 3. 




STEP 6 - Prospecting and Coaching 

  • The impact global page has information in the training tab on prospecting and coaching. 

  • Learn and think about how to incorporate this into your business plan. 

  • Keep in contact with your mentor and let them know when you think you are ready and you want to start building your team. They can give you valuable information and guide you through the process. 



Remember at all times: 

  • Build yourself as a brand and place high value on the opportunity you have to offer and the products. 

  • Continue learning about network marketing, the products and yourself 

  • Keep developing a great business mindset - mindset is the key to great business people. 

  • Keep in contact with your mentor and your team.
