Taking Ownership

SusanTwellmanBy Susan Twellman, Co-Owner/Founder of Apriori Beauty, LLC

My eldest daughter, Shelly, recently turned 18 and the first thing she did was sign up as an Apriori Beauty Consultant.  Before, Shelly was always talking about Apriori Beauty with her friends at school and even had a cute little ViViD business going.  Most of her friends have long hair like her, and seeing Shelly’s lengthy locks tangle and frizzy-free encouraged them to ask her what she was using and start placing ViViD orders.  It was fun and cute but it wasn’t until she turned 18 that she really began to take it seriously.  The first day of her being a Consultant, I took a group of her friends and her to the beach and was casually “overhearing” them talk.  Imagine my surprise when in the midst hanging out with her friends, Shelly starts an impromptu sponsoring meeting, informing her friends of her new business adventure and how they can earn right now cash just by sharing the products.  I was speechless.  The words coming out of her mouth were things we’ve said and discussed at Consultant Trainings and Beauty Bars.  I realized then and there that Shelly really had listened and absorbed everything she’d heard while helping me at Apriori Beauty events.  My teenage daughter was listening and taking advice that had been given to her…proud mama to say the least!  As we were driving back home, I asked Shelly why all of a sudden she was taking charge full swing and her response was, “now that I’m 18, I own my Apriori Beauty business.  This is mine now and I’m going to take ownership of it.”

After signing up as a Consultant, a lot of people want to take ownership of their business but don’t know what the next step is.  They know that in order to grow their business, they need to sponsor Consultants and/or retail the products, but they don’t know how.  How do I approach someone?  How do I introduce the Opportunity?  Women aren’t motivated to sign up simply by their skin looking good.  As with you and me, they want to know what’s in it for them.  What rewards and benefits can they get?  How much money can they earn?  How often?  When approaching someone, if you lead your conversation with things that are fun and exciting, you’re more likely garner a response from them.  One great aspect about Apriori Beauty is that our Consultants get paid EVERY Friday on their MasterCards.  You can earn immediate money with this Company.  Let your prospects know what you’ve earned and purchased since becoming a Consultant. Maybe your prospect isn’t looking for a full-time job but would love extra cash for shoe shopping or would like to treat their family to a vacation.  Recognizing what is important to your prospect will help segway your conversation into the Opportunity.  It’s about getting to know themshellyapriori and finding out where they are right now in their life and where they want to be.  Apriori Beauty has Consultants who need the extra money to pay rent and bills and then we have Consultants who are saving their Apriori Beauty earnings for their kids’ college funds and retirement.  Take the time to find out and recognize what they want out of their daily life.

More often than not, you’re going to come across the occasional eye roll when you tell someone that you’re in Network Marketing.  Some people have a preconceived notion of what it means to be in Network Marketing and relate it to pyramid schemes and false promises.  Apriori Beauty is proud to be a Network Marketing Company because we’re helping in paving the way for what it really means to be part of a Multi-Level Marketing business.  We’re about building your business at your pace and helping you gain sustainability.  Let me be clear: Apriori Beauty is NOT a “get rich quick” business.  If you’re looking to build a sustainable business, Apriori Beauty is the Company for you.  When sharing the Opportunity with someone, give them your Apriori Beauty testimonial and share why you joined as a Consultant.  Share how much you have earned as a Consultant and the successes you’ve achieved.  Sometimes, people have to hear about the money and see the dollar signs in order to gain interest.  Show them that people are making money with Network Marketing, and more importantly, they are making money with Apriori Beauty.

I challenge you to step outside your comfort zone and take full ownership of your Apriori Beauty business.  Start utilizing your surroundings and daily routines by turning them into opportunities.  Take charge of your business because if you don’t, no one will.  This is your Apriori Beauty business and you hold the power to make it become successful.
