Think Dacia had a secret to her success? She did! GOOD OLD FASHIONED HARD WORK! 🙂
Here is her list of 10 Things She Did to Move Up: (These are not direct quotes.)
1.Make a decision that you do not want to settle.
Decide that you want more for your life and go for it. Making a decision is FINAL, no going back!
2.Create a schedule and stick to it!
Weekly Plan Sheet anyone???? P.S. Dacia works out an hour and a half a day with her hubby. So we can’t be jealous of her position or her adorable figure until we have mastered what she does and worked for it!
Work from commitment and not from emotion. So you have a headache? SO WHAT! You need to work this like a real job to make it pay like one!
4.Be consistent and be a Star consultant.
If you are very part time with 2-4 hours a week to work your MK, do 1+1+1 ($100 in sales, one class, one personal interview).
If you have 6-8 hours a week, do your 2+2+2 ($200 in sales, two classes held, and two personal interviews).
If you have 10-15 hours a week, do your 3+3+3 ($300 in sales, three classes held, and three personal interviews). This is MKC’s recommendation for part time consultants as well. At this level, you will be a star every quarter! 🙂
If you are looking to go into DIQ or above, strive for 5+5+5 (you guessed it… $500 sales per week, 5 classes held, and 5 personal interviews).
5.Have a good attitude.
Maintaining this and protecting yourself from negativity is highly important to maintaining excitement and momentum in your business! Never share your negatives with: team members, family members, your recruiter, anyone who’s support you want! The only person to share negatives with is your director.
Going to meeting, listening to motivational CDs or tapes, or reading motivational books is highly recommended as well.
6.Never miss company events such as Career Conference or Seminar.
These are meant to be your recognition for a job well done, inspiration, seeing the big picture and re-charging for your positive attitude and are very important to your business.
Interview everyone! Dacia does a “Dash out the door” party as her first appointment. (More on this later…) After the individual closes, when all sales are finalized, before the drawing for prizes, she does her 5 minute marketing and has everyone fill out a survey. She then attempts to book an interview with each person, or sends them home with a CD or hotline number and books a day to follow up.
8.This business is a numbers game!
Does this mean people are just numbers? NO! What she meant was “cream rises to the top”! She interviews as many as she can, signs as many as she can, motivating her unit by her example alone! Then the leaders emerge on their own from their own plans to move up. Dacia says a leader tells the director what she is going to do, she doesn’t wait on the director to ask her if she is interested in moving up. If someone is not willing to take the director’s advice and work, the director should not push her, but move on. The cream will rise to the top, and the leaders will make themselves known by their actions. Want more leaders on your team? Recruit more people, increase your unit size and more leaders will emerge.
9.Work with a sense of urgency.
Work like it ALL depends on YOU! Your team will not feel pressured, and you will be certain to accomplish your goals. Dacia said she worked everyday like it was the last day of the Seminar year, creating a race within herself. She had a goal at her first Seminar to be the queen of Sharing the following year, and by working with this pace, SHE DID IT!
10.Make God your partner.
Let Him work through you and it will show in all you do. Be humble when you talk to people. She gave this example about warm chattering. She is an NSD! But she does NOT approach people by saying with gusto, “HI! I’M DACIA WEIGANDT, YOUR MK NSD! HOW ARE YOU TODAY?” with hands on hips and huge, cheesy grin! No matter how cute she is, or how high up the career ladder she is, people will be turned off by that attitude. She says when you approach someone, be humble. Be thankful that she is giving you some of her time.
When she approaches people, she lowers her voice a bit and has a meeker stance, sometimes bending a bit if they are sitting, such as in a restaurant. She says something like, “Hi, ladies…I am so sorry to disturb your dinner, but I couldn’t help but notice how put together you all are! I would love to offer you my business card…do you all have a card I could have?” If not, she asks for their names and numbers so she can get together with them sometime to pamper them. I think it’s awesome that even at her level in this company, she still knows that we need to let the customer always be more important.
