If you’re starting (or re-starting) your direct sales business, or if you’re finally ready to start running it like a real business (instead of an expensive hobby), begin here.
The Truth About Direct Sales
If you’ve been in the industry for any length of time, you know that no one joins a direct sales company because they want to work more hours, spend more time away from their family, or make less money. Yet, many new consultants end up in this very boat. Some even start their business already in debt because they put their starter kit on their bank card, looking to “pay it off before the statement due date” like their leader promised them. But the shows they booked canceled, or rescheduled, and now they’re trying to decide what exactly they’ve gotten themselves into.
In reality, every consultant I’ve ever met tells me that they’ve joined their direct sales company because they wanted “something more” – and while some of them have found that elusive “more” they’ve been looking for, many direct sellers I meet tell me that they’ve been abandoned by their leader, or they are too remote to attend their organization training, or something else has put a barrier between their efforts and the success they desire.
Does this sound familiar to you?
If so, take heart, because Direct Sales Classroom can help you. Our 100-level courses are designed to help you build a comprehensive foundation for your direct sales empire. This isn’t just about the standard “booking, selling, and recruiting” mantra that every company and direct sales trainer espouses. The training at Direct Sales Classroom goes much deeper than that. Here’s a glimpse into our entire 100-level course series:
Direct Sales 101: Consultant Excellence
We begin by building a solid book of business. Direct Sales 101 has a history of graduating consistent performers in the industry. What does that mean? Well, the program guarantees that you’ll attain one of the following before you graduate:
- 9 new shows on your calendar
- $5000 in sales

And many students graduate with more than one of those accomplishments. About 30% of our students in Direct Sales 101 graduate early, meaning they’ve achieved one or more of those goals before the end of the 12-week course.[button link=”https://directsalesclassroom.com/direct-sales-101″] Take a closer look at Direct Sales 101[/button]
Direct Sales 102: Income Producing Activities
In this course, we continue to dig into the mindset of a business owner. We talk about IPA (which doesn’t just mean “income producing activities” – and how proper saving and investing (instead of spending) in your business can actually improve the state of your finances. We look at budgets and cash flow, and all the basic data you need to track to be a successful business owner. And the best part? You don’t need advanced math or a degree in physics to handle this course. Most of this stuff is common sense. By the end of Direct Sales 102, you’ll be increasing cash flow, reducing expenses, and delegating non-IPA so that you can focus on being more productive, more profitable and more available to what matters most in your life and business.
