People prefer network marketing over full time jobs. Reason? Network marketing is flexible and has no constraint of location, office space and can be literally undertaken from home. You can have a setup in the comfort of your home and enjoy working to the fullest. To ease things out, you can also install direct selling software on your laptop or desktop and manage everything from home. However, there are incidences when your time gets wasted unintentionally while you’re working from home. So, network marketers if you are working from home, then following are the things that might pose as a hindrance in your success ladder.
Several times, there are an array of tasks of your household that averts you from working. These tasks not only avoid you from working, but also after undertaking, give you a feeling of lethargy. Thus, you lose the enthusiasm of working and your success graph is pulled down miserably. These tasks are a major deviation from work and also a hindrance while applying brain power. So, if you want to succeed then set your priorities.
Friends And Family:
Friends and family can become a major hindrance because they can visit your home anytime. Once they arrive, you might lose your focus and concentration and forget about your priorities. Since, you are working from home, they feel that you can work in flexible hours. That’s not true! A minute question too can steal your concentration. So, beware from this deviation as it plays a primary role in losing focus. Most importantly, stay away from mobile phones as they are a major distraction.
Another stumbling block can be online browsing – most primarily chatting. While you are working and a ping from a friend on Google Hangouts or a notification on Facebook is enough to lose your focus. Social media can get you abundant business, but use it strictly for business while working. Checking out twitter handles and retweeting, checking Facebook notifications and liking and commenting is a big interruption. So, make sure you set boundaries of social media while working.
While you are sending abundant emails to your leads and you are receiving no answer from their end, is definitely an alarm that you should not proceed further. Several times, in urge of business, we tend to run behind a lead thinking that he/she will reciprocate. Whereas, on the other hand, these leads are not interested in entertaining us. We constantly keep thinking that ‘someday, they will change their mind’. However, this thinking is nothing but a complete waste of time.
While you have set up a meeting and the lead doesn’t show up or cancels it abruptly, discourages you enormously. This moment can definitely make you feel low, thus wasting a lot of time thinking what could be the reason! Also, if you have occupied that time for a particular task and if gets cancelled, then it leaves you in a puddle – thinking how to occupy time! These factors have to be neatly organised.
Now, that you know that these factors can waste your time profusely then organise them properly. Avoid calls, notifications that are baseless. Design a working strategy and stick to it so that there are no hindrances in your success story!
