It's not even entirely your fault that your direct sales business is running you more than you are running it.
I used to have those same problems and after working with and helping thousands of others direct sellers, I realized something fundamental is missing in the training and tools available to direct sellers.
Unfortunately, the focus tends to be on marketing strategies and product information.
Those strategies are essential, but knowing all the marketing techniques in the world
won't help you create the necessary skills for running your business like a CEO.
I started in direct sales in 2006 as a kitnapper, never thinking it would become a life-changing career that would open so many doors for me. I didn't have a clue what I was doing in the beginning and most of the training I was given access to was about marketing, products and team building.
I quickly found myself overwhelmed and stressed out with trying to track, manage, follow through and organize my business. Then as I began leading a team, I realized they were having the same struggles with time management and a lack of processes.
I looked for a solution but when I couldn't find anything specific for direct sellers, I decided to create something for myself. The first version of the CEO of Me® (now Direct Selling CEO) printable direct sales business planning system was created over 12 years ago.
I began coaching and mentoring other direct sellers & selling my printable planning system in 2016. Since then, over 5,000 direct sellers have purchased the toolkit & are using the printable planning system to get organized, implement systems & optimize their businesses.
Question: Is this a physical product I will receive in the mail or digital download? How will I access it?
Answer: This is a printable planner only. It is a digital download via a zip file and all files are PDF files. Once you purchase, you'll receive an email with your access info and you can download it from your member's area on my website. I do not offer a printed version of it. This system is customizable and meant for you to use the pages you need, skip the ones you don't and print more as you need it for years to come. You can access the training in your member's area anytime as well.
Question: What size are the pages? Is this set up to be printed for smaller planners like Disc bound, ARC, Happy Planners or A5 size planners?
Answer: The files come in 8 1/2 x 11 full page size. You can use Adobe PDF to "print to scale" option and print the pages smaller to fit the standard 7x9 planners like the Happy Planner or smaller for A5 and simply trim the excess of the page. We find that the worksheets are best suited for at least 7x9 or larger size disc systems or binders.
Question: Is this toolkit/planner only for USA direct sellers or will it work if I'm in the UK, AU, CA or Europe?
Answer: About 25% of my customers / DS Toolkit users are from countries other than the US, including the UK, AU/NZ, Canada & a small % in European countries like Spain, Germany, France & Romania to name a few. Over 5,000 direct sellers from 15+ countries worldwide have purchased / are using the systems. 🙂
I've been involved in the direct sales industry since 2006 (coaching since 2016) and have experience working with consultants, team leaders and companies from multiple countries
None of my products or training is company or country specific. I've done my best to make sure everything is relevant and able to be implemented for as broad of an audience as possible.
Question: I don't really do parties for my business, will this toolkit & the systems still help me?
Answer: Yes, absolutely! It is not focused on parties, parties are only 1 section of the planner and 1 activity that some people do in their business. The training & toolkit is setup to work for anyone in direct sales, network marketing or traditional party plan company to use to create & implement systems, get organized and work smarter no matter whether they do parties or not.
Question: I already have a calendar planner that I love, how is this different?
Answer: The Direct Selling CEO Printable Planner is not really a "calendar planner". It does come with multiple monthly, weekly and daily planning pages for those who want to use it for scheduling but it is more of a Business Planner & Systems Toolkit for your Business since it includes sections, worksheets, checklists and tools to use to create and implement systems in all areas of your business so you can be more organized and work smarter.
Question: Will I have to purchase the toolkit planner again each year or be charged again for it?
Answer: No, this is a one time purchase product, not a subscription. You will have continued access to whatever design you purchase.
If you purchase Premium Access you'll have continued access to all current and future designs at no extra cost.
The calendar pages are undated so you can print it again year after year and will not need to purchase a new one.
I do not guarantee to update or keep ALL designs forever. I do retire older designs from time to time. If that happens, you will still have access to the older version / design you purchased as long as you have downloaded the files, you can continue to use it.
Question: Can I buy this and then share the files with my team or other direct sellers?
Answer: No, your purchase entitles you to only ONE licence of the planner for your own personal/business use. The planner is copyrighted and sharing, selling, distributing, copying it to give or sell to someone else is illegal and also just not nice. I do however offer a very generous affiliate program where you can make a commission from referring others to purchase the planner.
Question: Can I have the toolkit printed at Office Depot or other stores or somewhere online?
Answer: Yes, you can. However, we don't recommend you do that.
We recommend that you print ONLY the pages and/or sections that you need as you need them and print more each month or quarter rather than having it printed in a mass bundle somewhere.
The Toolkit is set up for you to create a customized toolkit and organizer suited especially for your own business needs. You will most likely not use all of the pages and may need more of 1 page than another.
We recommend the HP Instant Print Printers & Instant Ink Program as a very affordable option for printing at home. The printers are as low as $50-75 and you can print 100-400 pages a month for as little as $2-15 a month. This is way more affordable than having it printed somewhere.
All sales final. No refunds. This is digital download product & meant for personal use only (single user license).
This is NOT A PHYSICAL PRODUCT, you will not receive anything in the mail. This is a digital download of files & online courses. The printable planner system is a bundle of PDF files for you to download and print at your own home to create your own custom business planner. The PDF files are also fillable so they can be typed in and saved to any device if you don't want to print them. The Digital version works with Goodnotes on iPads and apps like Xodo on Android tablets.
You will receive an email with the link to access to the download links & Training Videos after completing your purchase.
