writing a story

Your Story

One of the best things about becoming an entrepreneur is that you design a new and often exciting life for yourself. For those in Direct Sales & Network Marketing, this can be turned into YOUR STORY and it can be a powerful business tool.

If you haven’t taken the time to create ‘Your Story’, I strongly encourage you to do so. Why, you may ask? It’s pretty simple actually- a majority of people decide to join your team based on you and the things you have experienced throughout your business journey and how you share it with others. They can be drawn to your situation on why you originally started the business, the things you have been able to achieve, how it has transformed you financially or even how it has helped develop you as a person. There are a number of things that can inspire others when hearing or reading your story.

You might be brand new to the industry and thinking “I don’t have a story yet, I’m too new’. WRONG! Regardless of the length in the business or the things you might have accomplished you still have a story.

Here are a few things to consider when putting your story together:

Why did you originally decide to join your company?
How was your life like before you started your own business?
How is it now? (If you have been in the business for a long period of time, think back to the first 3 months, 1 year, and 5 year marks- how has your life changed during this time)
What are some of the goals you have set for yourself?
What, if anything, have you been able to purchase or even won because of your business?

Once you have answered these questions, put it all together so it flows nicely. I recommend you write it out first and then practice saying it so you can share it at each party or demonstration. For those of you that do party plan, I also encourage you to put the written version in your hostess and sponsoring packets. You will be surprised at how many people will start sharing YOUR story for you!

Keep in mind, your story will constantly be evolving and that’s okay. I know one individual who has been in the industry for over 20 years and her story is over 8 pages long! While I think that is a bit much, it’s okay to share the important things that have happened to you because of your business because you never know who it will inspire.
