If you are new to the direct sales biz or have been dabbling for a while but feel stuck and are looking to re-ignite, here are some great ways to engage your people.
First let me preface this by saying this post does not mean don't talk about your business at all, but what it IS saying is that you are not the product you sell. People are attracted to the other stuff in your life which then turns into curiosity about what you are doing. Show them the life you've created, being in the direct selling business, and it will pique their interest for what you are doing!
