I am thinking about ordering a starter kit today and need to talk to Billy and the kids, but how and when? It never seems like the right time to talk about it. When Billy gets home from work he just wants to relax and have quiet time with us. Between the after school soccer practice for Jake and piano classes for Molly, not to mention the mountain of homework…Argh! Maybe this is a silly idea! I want my family’s support and don’t want to sacrifice the important responsibilities I already have to them.
Are there other people out there that experience this with their family? If so what issues came up and how did you overcome them? How do you best talk about the positives and assure your family of how to deal with the negatives?
The right decision is…
There sure does seem to be a lot of fun, exciting and rewarding aspects to getting into direct sales. It is something I’m really going to give a try… I must admit though, I am a bit nervous and unsure about taking that first step. How much time is this going to take away from my current responsibilities, and possibly my family? What are my husband and friends going to think about my decision? I don’t want to neglect or let down the people I care about. What if I fail?
What can I do to best prepare myself for starting my own business in direct sales? Billy never takes me seriously when I start new projects…how do I get his attention that I want to do this for the family without making him mad? I want to be a good wife and mother to my children.
My friends Jayni and Martin have been talking to me about direct sales. It is a type of business where you work for an existing company as your own boss. It gives you flexibility and control while providing business guidance and support. This would be something new for me, and I feel I need to learn more before making a decision. I do like the idea of being in control of my own destiny. If I start my own business, results and my income will be directly tied to the amount of effort and energy I put into it.
What have you found are some of the fun and great benefits in starting your own business in direct sales?
Hi, I’m Beth Branch. My husband Billy is an accountant, and is the breadwinner in the family. We have been married for 12 years and have two wonderful children - Jake is 10 and Molly is 8. I have been working part time in a jewelry store to add a little extra cash in to the family coffers. It’s not much lol, but we we’re hoping it would be enough to help us afford that family trip to Disney we have been wanting.
I received some bad news on Monday…
What am I going to do now? I don’t want to look for another part time job where I am simply a number in someone’s budget. I want to control my own destiny. But where can I find another job which puts me in control and is flexible enough to work around the kids’ school and sports schedules?
Does anyone have any suggestions?
