Why do you stay if you are so miserable?

That's the million dollar question as far as I am concerned when it comes to direct sales. It doesn't matter what company or how long it's been around, but if you are truly that unhappy why do you stay?

I see these ladies that join a home business and within a month they are complaining: "I am not making any money, no one will buy this from me, it's to expensive, there are to many rules" etc etc. You get the drift.

Let's take the first one: I am not making any money. This is your responsibility not the companies. They will never make a claim on how much money you can make nor will they make it for you. You must be willing to work it as a business not a hobby in order to succeed. You can not simply put your website link out there and expect to make money. Sure you may get an order here and there, but not the type of money you are looking for.

You must work the business every day, take aside a couple hours each day, each week depending on how much you want to make. You should have a business plan and goals; long term and short term ones. Joining tons of wahm boards isn't going to make you real money. Ask the ladies that are number 1 in their company how they got there and they will tell you from a variety of ways, and I can almost guarantee it's not from message boards. The only reason you aren't succeeding is you, placing blame on others will get you no where.

If you find that the company you are with isn't right for you for whatever reason: LEAVE. Find one that works for you. Regardless on what size team you may have built up, go on your way as you aren't doing anything for your team but bringing them down.
