I Got Blasted for Making a Move in Direct Sales! But Here is Why!

I have been blasted by a couple of people about me moving to another company. Why did I need to make this move?
I really haven’t been building hard for the last 3-4 months of anything so I have been trying to figure out what I wanted to do with direct sales.
I don’t know why but I just could not throw my heart into anything. I almost just quit the whole profession and even had someone tell me that I should not build a business and build a ministry at the same time. Granted, I disagree with that.
I asked myself if I was finally going to build again, what was I going to look for? First I didn’t want the hype anymore. I am over that. I wanted something that didn’t preach get in early because thats where all the money is at. I wanted something that I can look someone in their eyes and tell them we will be around 10 and 15 years and actually believe that in my heart.
I needed stability. I don’t need new anymore.
I needed something that would be as FTC compliant as you can get and we makes everyone start as a preferred customer. that is smart because the FTC isn’t playing anymore.
I wanted something that already went through rough times and have survived. 32 year history, you went through a lot to stay there.
I wanted a comp plan that was fair for even the newest rep not just the reps that can drag teams over to the company. I wanted it to make fast money without a ton of people for that fast company.
I wanted everyday products at affordable prices that are also scienced-based. As I tell people, we have great products at Target prices.
I wanted several different industries built into the company so that if one industry is hurting, the company doesn’t get hurt.
I wanted a company that not only teaches people about their products but also how to sell the products. That part is missing in a lot of places. Sales is where the FTC wants everything to be and training on sales is important.
I am not looking for the perfect company because that doesn’t exist but i want a company that puts reps first by making it affordable to build, have affordable prices and have products that most people will use everyday.
I had no idea I would ever come to this company. I had no idea that this company offered everything I have been searching for through the years and it was right in front of me this whole time.
There are many great companies around but we just feel this is right right for my wife and I.
Before you say to yourself, he jumps from company to company way too much, you are right on the money BUT I look at it this way. I went through over 100 women before I found Sandy and that made the going from person to person all worth it because Sandy was and is everything I could have dreamed of in a woman.
So now we have went through over 100 companies in the last 10-12 years so we believe this will be worth it too because we found the company of our dreams!
We planted our flag now and this is where we will build for the years to come! We are soo looking forward to this next journey of our life with a company that we believe will still be here 20 years from now!
I wish all of you much success in the company that you have chosen because i pray for each of your successes because a rising tide raises all ships so each success that happens in direct sales helps us all out! Build hard and go for your dreams!
That is my Story!

We have had a crazy story since we have been married over 15 years. From the moment we married, we have pretty much been a 24/7 couple and now a 24/7 family with Lil Chris who is 5. We want to use this website to share some of our experiences from God to family to life and business. We want to help people see that they have an adventure inside of them, they just have to find it and run with it. We are not meant to live a dull life but an adventurous life.
