10 Reasons a Real Estate Agent Can be a Successful Shaklee Distributor

The current economy nationwide has made it difficult for many successful real estate agents to earn a living. The real estate market in 2010 is not what it was just a few short months ago.

An attractive alternate income can be built by these under-utilized agents can be found in building a Shaklee business. What skills do they already have that will give them an advantage?

10 Reasons to be Successful

Real estate agents are:

  1. Selling Machines. Every good real estate agent is already an expert in selling. They know the process of prospecting, creating a relationship with potential customers, and how to put together a winning deal.
  2. Deal Closers. Most agents that are successful know how to close a deal. Identifying the concerns of potential buyers and knowing how to “cross the finish line” are second nature.
  3. Networkers. These successful individuals know how to build long lasting relationships and networks. They understand that it is more important to keep the clients happy so they will return in the future and be a valuable source of referrals.
  4. Accustomed to Rejection. No one is immune to impact of rejection. But in any selling profession the winners will understand that it takes a lot of “no’s” to get to those few valuable “yes’s”.
  5. Experts in Matching Customers with Products. With the experience of matching home-buyers with properties, the agent has valuable experience in presenting the right product at the right time to the right prospect.
  6. Positive. No one with a negative attitude makes it in the selling world.  This can-do attitude works well in selling almost anything.
  7. Possessing Local Networks. A good real estate agent already has access to an existing network of people who are going through changes in their lives. They know their local area and many well-connected individuals that can be invaluable in building a Shaklee business.
  8. Competitive. A real estate agent typically has that drive to succeed. They seek out opportunities where the rewards are available based on the amount of work applied. There is no such thing as blind luck in a long-term sales career. It is only hard work that makes a real difference.
  9. Part-timers. Many agents work in real estate on a part time basis. That is also an approach that can be used in selling Shaklee products. In fact many of the top performers started out in their career almost as a hobby to earn extra income and learned how to be successful.
  10. Motivated by Money.  All good sales people are motivated by monetary rewards. There are other great recognition opportunities, but the freedom that significant income provides opens all kinds of doors.

Will every successful real estate agent be able to be a successful Shaklee distributor? Of course not, but they already possess several advantages that can be used to get started right away. And as the economy continues to struggle, everyone can use a fresh opportunity.

10 Things I Learned at the Anaheim Shaklee Global Conference

Shaklee Global Conference 2010

Shaklee Anaheim Global Conference 2010

Cars, cash, trips, and dreams.

My first Shaklee Global Conference

I just returned from my first Shaklee Global Conference. What a great event. There were so many friendly, positive, successful people all in one place – thousand of them!

10 things I learned at the Conference:

  1. Shaklee is a family.

    If a family can be defined as an association of people who share common beliefs or activities, then Shaklee definitely qualifies. Everyone I met had goals, experiences, and aspirations that I can identify with. I felt like I belonged.

  2. I belong to an amazing group.

    I met many of the successful business leaders in the same group to which I belong. There were a few familiar faces, but it was an opportunity to become acquainted with people I had only heard about before. It was like a family within a family.

  3. It is more fun being around positive people than negative ones.

    Everyone was upbeat, interested in learning new things, and excited about the changes in Shaklee. People were easy to talk with, genuinely interested in me and my Shaklee story, and were excited about continuing to build their business.

  4. Shaklee continues to improve the business opportunity.

    The Dream Plan announced by Shaklee is an exciting improvement to an already great opportunity. I don’t have years of experience to make comparisons with, but the Shaklee team seemed to “wow” everyone I talked to. Even the most seasoned veterans were telling me this was one of the most significant program changes they have ever seen.

  5. Shaklee continues to improve the product line.

    The new Fiber Advantage Bars, Get Clean Water filtration system, the FDA approved Cholesterol Reduction Complex, and Vita-D3 are incredible new products that will make people more healthy – and should be easy to use to impress new and existing customers.

  6. Shaklee people want to help each other.

    I would sit down at any table and start talking to people and quickly have things to talk about and discover many things I could learn. No one was “hoarding” their secrets to success – they wanted everyone to succeed.

  7. Success brings recognition as well as rewards.

    The top leaders were very well rewarded – highlighted by the line of new Mercedes Hybrid automobiles handed out. But success was recognized and rewarded at all levels, giving everyone encouragement to continue building their business.

  8. Shaklee International is a growing and exciting business.

    All of the international teams were well represented and recognized. The future of Shaklee Global is very bright, with a good foundation to build upon.

  9. Shaklee knows how to put on a great event.

    The venue, organization, and presentations were extremely professional. It made me feel like I was part of an organization that was confident and knew what they were doing.

  10. Enthusiasm is contagious.

    It would be difficult to come away from the Global Conference and not be impressed with Shaklee – both the people and the opportunity. Success breeds success. I can only imagine the sales volume the company is going to experience in the next few weeks!

Also the underlying theme of the event was that no one gets to be successful by luck or connections. It is based on work, hard work. And this experience makes me – and I am sure many others – want to get busy right away. I want to be on that stage next year!

10 Reasons Why Young Entrepreneurs Can be Successful in Building a Shaklee Business

Shaklee provides an opportunity for people of all ages to build a successful business to achieve financial independence. But young entrepreneurs come to the program with several advantages compared with older, more experienced business leaders.

What are these advantages?

Social Networking.

Young Entrepreneurs know how to create social networks online. They are more connected than any other generation and know how to use online tools such as Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. Building a successful Shaklee business requires building connections and no one know how to do this online better than the younger generation.

Green Living

Strong Interest in Green Causes.

Shaklee has been environmentally responsible for over 50 years – before it was fashionable. Young entrepreneurs want to work with companies that make people and the planet a healthier place to live.

Healthy Living

Want To Develop A Healthy Lifestyle Early in Life.

The young generation is healthy and wants to stay that way. The healthy Shaklee products are the type of merchandise that anyone can feel good about promoting and young people will see that importance. Shaklee’s product line includes healthy vitamin supplements, weight management, green living at home, and healthy beauty products.

Smart and Educated.

This generation is highly educated. They are smart and want to use their training to build a successful career. Entrepreneurs in particular will see that the Shaklee program can provide an opportunity to be rewarded for their hard work.

Energetic

Energetic and Optimistic.

Any selling program involves a certain level of rejection. Young peoples’ energy and natural optimism gives them a resilience others may not have. They can look at the bigger picture over the long run and see that a few “nos” today can be offset by the potential rewards from the “yeses”.

Gold Ambassador

Appreciate the Low Initial Investment.

Young entrepreneurs typically need to find a program with a low initial investment to get started. Shaklee is a perfect fit with an initial investment of only $299 can get them into the program.

Introducing a New Generation to Shaklee.

While Shaklee has been around for over 50 years it is not as well known by the younger generation. This provides the opportunity for younger business leaders to tap into a huge undeveloped market.

Mentoring

Can Benefit From Mentoring/Sponsorship Business Model.

Young entrepreneurs may have the education and energy to do just about anything. But the Shaklee business model is built upon each new Independent Distributor being sponsored. This sponsorship provides a long-term relationship and the opportunity to quickly learn from a pro.

Part Time Work

Can Work Part-Time and Still Be Successful.

Many young people don’t have the time to get started in a full time business. With Shaklee they can take advantage of being able to work at their own pace and still be successful. And as with any new entrepreneurial project, the reward will be directly related to the time and effort invested.

Looking for Alternative Employment in the Current Economy.

No one has to tell new college graduates how tough it can be to land that first job in the current economy. But by creating a job by starting a Shaklee business it will be possible to eliminate that problem. Shaklee has exceeded its sales goals in each of the past 6 recessions and has proven that it doesn’t take a strong economy to be successful.
