Day 10 of 14 Days of Loving Your Business - Your Support System
Giveaway Day 10 of 14 Days of Loving Your Business.
Roses are red.
Violets are blue.
My business and I
Need to thank you.
You probably have a lot of people who support you in your business who aren't customers or team members. Your spouse, your family, your best friend, etc. They are cheering you on, giving you advice (which may or may not want) and talking you up to their contacts.
Your family supports your business by giving up part of their home for your business supplies. They rearrange their schedule so that you can work. They understand when you have to miss a soccer game. They help you by putting stickers on your catalogs, sort orders and organize receipts.
Your friends help by doing extra carpool because you have a meeting. They hand out your card to someone who needs your product. They come to your open house so that there are extra bodies in the room.
Your friends and family might not support you all the time the way you want them to, but they want to see you succeed. Thank them for their support. You can write them a note, give them a shout out on social media, let them play with your new products and treat them to something fun when you get a bonus or a big commission check. They don't have to be part of your business, but your business will be easier with a big cheering section.
Celebrate every day,
