3 Books for Direct Sellers
I think I’ve mentioned before that I love my Audible subscription… I love to get inspired, get motivated and learn more while I’m driving, while I’m doing chores…anytime I have headspace!
So, today I have 3 new favorites for you. Pop them on your wish list or playlist today!
The Power of Habit – Charles Duhigg
Have you ever wondered how some people manage to move forward in business and life so quickly? Or how some people can break negative patterns and behaviors and others can’t seem to?
Charles Duhig has found the answer: small, consistent habits.
I found this book fascinating and very entertaining. Charles explains the science behind success in an easy to understand way. He also talks you through some very interesting cast studies where success was achieved as a result of small changes to habits.
This book might just unlock a whole new world of opportunity for you, both in business and in life. I highly recommend it.
Be a Party Plan Superstar – Mary Christensen
I’ve talked before about another book by Mary Christensen, but I also adore Be a Party Plan Superstar. This book is aimed at people that are fairly new to the direct selling industry and provides a pretty solid foundation in knowledge and skills required to build a successful direct selling business.
I didn’t read this book when I was new in the industry. Instead I was introduced to this book when I already had a multi-million dollar turnover in my business.
But I still found this a useful book and used it as a “check-up” for my own business. And I did find areas to improve! I also used it to gain an understanding of what a new consultant needs.
So I used this book in my personal business and as a leader. Add this one to your list too
A huge obstacle in business – and in life – is procrastination. I think we all know the feeling!
In the book Eat that Frog, Brian Tracy provides 21 ways (!) to beat procrastination and how to get stuff done.
It would have been so easy for me to do nothing in my business in the past eighteen months since my daughter was diagnosed with acute leukemia. Instead I chose to apply the strategies in this book to maintain focus and move forward in the pockets of time I managed to find.
I found the concept of doing the toughest things first incredibly liberating! By getting the hard tasks out of the way first each day, I felt so much lighter….I didn’t have that lingering dread hanging over me. And because I started to tackle the tough tasks first I felt fresher and I could think more clearly.
It was so much easier to do the hard things first than putting it off to the last minute (often late at night), which would add stress to the mix when I really didn’t need any more!
If you’re a procrastinator or want to be able to get more done, this is your book!
These three books should keep you busy for a while. Let me know in the comments which book has been helpful for you…
