A Recruiting Mindset

Posted on Updated on

My goal this year has been to hit several areas of my business. And recruiting is one of them. I have always been a strong recruiter, I think it comes natural to me because I truly love my job. And it’s easy for people to see that.

But it’s more than that. It’s a mindset. Every conversation I have, I’m looking for my next recruit. As they’re talking to me, my mind is LITERALLY thinking, what could this business do for THEM?

I have personally recruited 32 consultants in the last 6 months. Isn’t that CRAZY? And I still do the same happy dance with each new recruit. Because I know what I can do for them. I know how I can change their life for the better. And nothing gets me more excited than a new recruit!

So I have been taking some very INTENTIONAL steps to stay on top of my recruiting efforts. And I wanted to share a few of those with you. I shared with my team not too long ago, that recruiting and sales go hand in hand. Normally, if you’re recruiting-your sales are going to go down. You’re giving away parties and customers, right? So you really have to decide what you want. Don’t focus on anything but that. And then go ALL IN. Great church service, the message was ARE YOU ALL IN? Think about that. Whatever it is you want to achieve, makes sure you’re all in. Make sure every conversation is geared toward your goal.

So here’s a video I made for my team. it is LONG, I apologize. 15 minutes. But, it will give you plenty of ideas on how to start those recruiting conversations. And my best tip for someone who wants to build their team…start working on booking. The more people you get in front of, the more people you can offer the opportunity to.

Hope you enjoy!

    Hi Melissa! This was great! Is that flier in the beginning of your video available for use? I’m not in your downline.

    Hi Melissa!! I’m always super impressed with your posts!! I’d love to know if you have made those fliers available to folks not in your downline, and also the power hour binder … that sounds like a great idea!! Thanks so much for being such a supportive leader to all of us bag ladies out there 🙂
