I was recently corresponding with someone interested in the opportunties with Pink Zebra. She said she just isn't a good salesperson. It made me remember back to my journey to Pink Zebra. I saw an ad in a local yard sale site and wanted to see these soy wax beads called Sprinkles. I contacted the consultant and asked if I could hear more about them but that I didn't want to have a party or sell them, just see them. I mean I'm not a salesperson, so maybe I could buy a couple but that was it. I met up with Erin, we chatted about Pink Zebra, the company, her experience, and I started my list. I left with quite a list of things I wanted. I went home, went online and placed an order. A couple days later, I received an email from Erin thanking me for meeting up with her and placing an order and wanted to just share her team incentive. I started to think about the opportunity. I'm not a salesperson...could it work? I loved the product, I loved Erin's enthusiasm and excitement, I could use a couple evenings away meeting others, socializing, having fun. What did I have to lose? I could make a little extra spending money and have products I loved. I jumped in and joined. The excitement in the next couple weeks overshadowed my fears of public speaking and talking to complete strangers. I was having fun...mixing sprinkles, creating recipes, dreaming of party themes. I started with family and friends. It was a success. I started advertising my business. I met new people, I had parties, I went to vendor events and I talked to so many strangers. It didn't matter that I wasn't a salesperson...it worked! Why? Because it was a ground floor opportunity with huge potential, it was a consumable product that the customer kept coming back for, I loved what I was doing and showed that to everyone I met, and I pushed myself to overcome fears and step outside my comfort zone. You don't have to be a good salesperson...you have to be able to share a product you believe in, a product you love, and have a passion for the company and the company's beliefs and values. You have to be willing to take some challenges and step outside that comfort zone occasionally. That's it!! No experience necessary.
