We all have friends, family and/or co-workers who sell things like body wraps, workout programs, skin care, leggings and lots of other things. These sales people are known for posting a lot on social media about their businesses and sliding into your DMs proposing your chance to join their team or buy their product.
I have seen a lot of angry statuses about these people and comments with rude remarks on their posts. It seems like these business owners constantly have to defend their decision to join the company they work for.
My question to all the people who are reacting so negatively to these entrepreneurs is this; Have you ever been in a sales position before? It can be terrifying and extremely stressful to have an income that relies solely on sales.
They are posting all the time because they care about what they’re selling and they are working hard to achieve a goal.
They don’t get paid when they don’t sell things. They don’t have the luxury of screwing around for half of their day at work because they’re tired or “it’s Friday and everyone does it.”
They don’t get paid time off. They don’t have holiday pay. Bills are still due and their families still need fed regardless of how many sales they have that month.
Direct sales people have serious balls.
It’s not easy getting rejected 90% of the time and still not giving up on your dream. That my friends, is called dedication.
They get called names and told to F@$# off more times in a month than most people do in a lifetime. Sales people develop a thick skin and somehow maintain a smile through it all.
Some of these positions have allowed them the flexibility to spend more time with their kids and spouses. Some of these people are selling on the side because they need the extra money for their student loans or their kid’s school trip.
They are on a mission to find financial freedom and freedom with their time, a dream everyone has. I am so proud of them for going for it, something not everyone has the kahunas to do.
To my friends in direct sales, keep going. Don’t let all the negativity stop you. I see you working your tails off and that’s something to be proud of.
Sales take a lot of consistency and a lot of hard work that sometimes takes a long time to pay off. Just know that I am cheering for you and the people in your lives who truly care are cheering for you too.
