- Success Made Simple: The 7 Step Approach to Direct Selling Success.
Everyone’s journey on the path to direct selling success looks a little different and is sprinkled with their own unique stories and experiences. However, the building blocks that got them there fit into a handful of key business building activities upon which a thriving business is built. The key to success is rooted in the basics.
This keynote is specifically designed for party plan or social selling audiences whose businesses rely on a group/social selling environment coupled with a smart, modern approach to connecting, communicating and cultivating relationships. We’ll explore the key actions that make up the building blocks for success including: booking parties, host coaching, selling/facilitating a party experience, serving and recruiting. They’ll see how each is an essential piece of the puzzle and how choosing to focus on the basics of the business will catapult their businesses ahead.
We begin the talk with the audience thinking about themselves as the cornerstone and foundation of their business. Capturing their hopes, dreams, goals in a way that makes them want to learn more and take action more quickly. Then, through her own stories and experiences, Laurie will take the audience on her journey from starting out brand new to building the largest organization in her company. She’ll share vital lessons learned along the way and the systems she put in place to achieve such remarkable results.

- Marketing ME! A Fresh Way of Looking at the Business of Social Selling.
When we think about what we do as consultants and leaders, it’s really all about creating interest and turning that interest into customers, recruits and leaders. We do that by piquing curiosity, inspiring action and developing strong relationships. Laurie calls this process “The Success Cycle.” She takes your consultants and leaders on a journey through the lens of how consumers make decisions today. She explores what gets and keeps the attention of clients, prospect and team members. By understanding how what you do offline blends with what you do online, you achieve more. Relationships are the cornerstone of building a strong, long-lasting business, and when you learn to serve clients and team members in a way that connects with what’s important to them, the magic happens. It starts by understanding the process and then putting that knowledge into action at each stage of each relationship.
- Become the Next Recruiting Rockstar in 90 Days!
Becoming an expert recruiter begins with cultivating your recruiter’s mindset and then putting ideas into action. Today’s top recruiters blend classic AND contemporary methods and tools. Laurie teaches consultants and leaders a simple process for recruiting both offline and online. She instills a belief that recruiting is a powerful gift you have to give, and when you follow a process consistently, you’ll achieve remarkable results. She also teaches consultants and leaders how to leverage their online presence and social tools to expand their reach to build wider and deeper, both locally and nationally. Laurie’s a techie person who also believes in the power of real relationship-building, and her style and approach resonates with the most old-fashioned of sellers who are tech-nervous AND with those that are already achieving great results online. While she believes wholeheartedly in using technology tools in the smartest, most effective ways, she also believes that people still long for real, human interaction and when blended well, the results can be astounding.
- The Power of One
Something powerful happens when a consultant or leader realizes that each small step adds up to monumental results. We’ll explore key areas of business and learn how making small changes, adding just one more contact, or one more party or one new team member leads to significant growth. We’ve all heard it said that it’s a numbers game, right? Well, it’s no game, but understanding numbers is essential in growing a strong business, and Laurie breaks it down into concepts that are easy to grasp and compel immediate action.
- It’s Something Bigger
What you offer to customers, hosts, prospects, and your families isn’t just what’s found in your catalog or on a website. It’s something bigger. What you do matters in the world and impacts people’s lives in ways that cannot be measured. Your products change lives. Your business opportunity allows dreams to come true. The experiences you provide create life-long results. Laurie helps consultants and leaders develop their inner voice to coach themselves into believing in their something bigger and understand how to communicate this belief in a way that leads to greater results in the key measurables of selling, booking, recruiting and leader development.
- Let’s Talk Technology
