I get contacted often by people keen to join Forever Living, but they can’t afford the £199.75 for the UK Business Owner Box (or BOB as we affectionately call it) and they want financial help in order to get started. Prices vary depending on which country you are from. See my previous post on How Much Does it Cost to Join Forever Living.
However when you join Forever Living you are starting your own business, and if you don’t make some sacrifices yourself to join, or actually invest your own effort and time into raising the funds for your box you may well not see the value in your new business. Also would you give another person who contacted you out of the blue via the internet £200 just like that?
I am very happy to give my time, expertise and support to help others start their own business, but you need to also commit your time and effort too or your business will never grow. Take a look at my previous post How Not to Grow your Network Marketing Team on more reasons why funding someone to join Forever Living is not a great idea.
So how can you earn enough to buy your BOB if you have no spare money – here are my top 20 tips….
- Collect £2 or £1 coins
- Ebay your surplus clothes
- Cash in the attic – sell those treasures you have forgotten about
- Sell your unwanted belongings
- Do some overtime
- Baby sit
- Clean for Someone
- Walk dogs
- Clean cars
- Have a garage or yard sale
- Ask your family
- Credit Card (but pay it back from your first orders)
- Ask 20 people for £10
- Ask 10 people for £20
- Give up alcohol or smoking
- Stop eating out
- Take your own coffee instead of buying from Costa/Starbucks
- Do someone else’s gardening
- Do someone else’s shopping
- Do someone else’s ironing
I appreciate that not all these options are available to everyone, but pick one or two from the list or find your own way to save up your pennies, and you will find the £1s will soon mount up.
Also while you are saving then contact me and I can share some fabulous resources and background reading to help you learn more about this fabulous business so when you have saved the money you are ready to get earning straight away.
