Direct Sales Training Gets a 'Jump Start'

When Home Party coaches Ruth Fuersten and Lisa Young met this past May, they never dreamed that their synergy would propel them into a joint venture some are calling "electrifying".

"I started as Ruth's home party coaching client, and we found we had so much in common, that I invited her to join me on my calls for my Party Pro MasterMind group. That call was one of the most talked about calls I've had all year. The call lasted over an hour and a half!" Young said.

They knew they struck gold when callers emailed afterward asking for more information. "So many consultants emailed us, we figured we had to do something in response."

That "something" is Direct Sales JUMP Start: Home Party Training for the REAL World. Home Party Consultants from any company are invited to join Ruth and Lisa on a live, 6-week telecourse packed with tips to boost their direct sales business.

The home party consultant coaching calls begin Sunday, November 2 and are every Sunday night at 8pm Eastern through December 7. The classes were strategically planned to coincide with the busiest season for Direct Selling Companies. According to the Direct Selling Association, over half of the sales for the entire industry are conducted during the Holiday Season.

"We wanted to prove that even in a 'down' economy, home party consultants can have higher sales, more bookings at their parties and quality recruit leads. The Holiday Season is the perfect time to take advantage of all the opportunities home party consultants have to book, sell and recruit. Direct Sales JUMP Start makes it even easier." Young said.

With a weekly challenge assignment designed to stretch consultants to new heights, this telecourse is not for the consultant that sees her home party business as a "hobby". These six weeks are designed to help a consultant serious about growing her home party business into a full-time income stream. Ultimately, the program outlines methods to add 9-12 shows to a consultant's calender dring the 6 week period, as well as poise the direct sales consultant for a move into leadership.

Fuersten and Young have over 20 years of combined experience in the Home Party Industry. Fuersten promoted to ledership in less than 90 days, with a high show of nearly $6,000. Young continues to lead sales teams in several Home Party companies, and authored the ground-breaking book, Home Party Solution, a step-by-step program for taking your Home Party Business to new heights using the power of the Internet.

Direct Sales JUMP Start, is a blend of both online and offline marketing techniques, word choices, scripts and tools for home paty consultants serious about treating their business like a real business.
