I hear this frequently from people who love health and want the opportunity to create financial freedom and fulfillment by representing a company they trust—Shaklee. BUT, they hold back because they are afraid of pushing people away and they don’t want to SELL things. It’s one of the biggest lies that has been created in the business of serving others…that you have to be “salesy.”
Do you know what I’ve discovered and how I answer? “Good. Me too. “Salesperson” is not a requirement for success with Shaklee.”
I am an Advocate. I am a Resource. I am a Listener. A Noticer.
I am not a salesperson. And I’ve come to love that.
We don’t have to “sell” people Basic H, or Vita Lea, or even Stress Relief Complex. We simply need to listen. To be genuinely interested in another person’s story. To be successful in Shaklee be a good listener. Practice the art of Noticing. Then, when the needs arise in someone’s story you can offer to become their advocate and offer resources to help meet their needs. Listening, advocating, noticing…these are relational. Selling is transactional.
This is a relationship business. This is an education business.
You see women succeed in Shaklee, not because it’s a trendy mom-hobby (at all) or because they use Shaklee as another way to compete in the “game” of motherhood, but because moms have a unique ability to care for one another. To empathize as they share so much in common around one of the strongest roots of their being as they raise children and serve their families. When someone sets mompetition aside and cultivates a servant heart and attitude a desire
emerges to create change and empowerment in others lives by sharing what is valuable and effective for them. Practicing mompetition OR practicing a servant heart and attitude requires the same output of effort, but the fruit of one is nourishing and the other is depleting.
The gift of succeeding in Shaklee is not just reserved for moms either!
For example, TEACHERS are remarkable in our business because they are passionate about educating, enabling and empowering.
THERAPISTS thrive l with Shaklee because they’re trained to listen, problem solve and offer solutions and they know that true wellness is multifaceted. Body, mind and spirit.
STYLISTS are great at this business because they understand how external beauty and health provides confidence internally.
Shaklee is not about sales—it’s about having a heart desire to serve. It’s the opportunity to meet a need with trusted products and a business that has been proven for over sixty years!
What do I do to serve people? I partner with Shaklee to bring value in ways people are looking for and do so for the sake of people I care for and relate to.
