New Business: Why do we want instant gratification so badly?
Tuesday, December 17, 2013
As some of you might know I officially launched my Scentsy business this past weekend. I have talking about starting Scentsy for like a year now, and I finally took the plunge. One of my first goals is to get to 500 PRV in the first 15 days of selling. Well, news flash it’s been four days, and I haven’t been able to sell anyone anything yet. I have a Facebook page made that I post things on, and I have been posting on my own personal timeline as well as in groups all over Facebook, but still nothing. I’m not looking to take over the world with this, but I really would like to reach my goals so that I can make business even better, but what’s the point of wanting to make my business better when no one seems to want to be a part of it? I know it takes time and dedication, and I have been working really hard but for some reason it hasn’t been good enough. It is really stressing me out! I am very passionate about Scentsy and I love the products and I thought other people would jump right on the bandwagon with me, but apparently not. My aunt is supposed to be hosting a party this month so hopefully that will happen before the 28th so that I can get my 500 PRV. I also have another friend who wants to host in January but it’s all so stressful. I want to start making money now. I’m not looking to take over the world with this, but seriously not one person has bought anything from me yet. It really is very disheartening. :( Then I thought about it last night and I realized that Coach Lauren Wardell has always told us that when it comes to weight loss we always expect instant gratifaction when these things actually take time. I mean I can’t lose weight overnight so why should I expect people to buy from me over night? I don’t know. I was just hoping for something more from this I guess. I do have a facebook page and a PWS that you all can check out if you want to though.
But anyways, as far as weight loss goes I have definitely fallen a bit off track. I am looking forward to being back at home and not being so stressed out…but on second thought, my father will be there screaming at me constantly so the stress will be there, who am I kidding. I have gotten out of the workout grind due to stress and feeling exhausted so I am hoping that on Thursday when I am back home I will start back up on a strong note. My eating hasn’t been too terrible, except for at breakfast time, I’ve resorted back to the old quicky ways. I am hoping that once I get home I will be able to get a job so that I can buy myself good for me foods, and plan out my meals and use spark peoples meal plans as a guide for myself. I think that will really help me stay on track. There is a job at 7-11 that my mom is looking into for me. Anyways, I get back home tomorrow night! It’s going to be emotional for sure, but it’s goodbye for now, not forever. I will see him again as soon as we can manage it. I hope you all are doing well!
