Start Your Journey Pack

In the past when you joined Forever Living we would fondly talk about the BOB.  Not just because Bob Parker is country manager here in the UK, but also because the box you bought to get started on your Forever Living journey was called the Business Owner Box.

But we have a new Start Your Journey Pack launched in February 2018 which replaces the BOB.  The new pack is available both through the online application form (Sponsor ID 440 100 686 316- Alison Mead).

Why Buy the Box?

The box has a fantastic selection of some of the most popular products from Forever Living, but also has all the literature you need to start your new business, as well as a training brochure to go through with your sponsor.

You can’t expect to run a business unless you are familiar with the products, and it is hard to sell products you have never used.  The box is designed so you can open it up and start using them as soon as they arrive, and share them with others in ways you will learn in your initial training with your sponsor.

You will also get a discount of 35% and a step Forever’s Marketing Plan ladder to Assistant Supervisor with your purchase.  The new box is £199.75 and is also worth 1.177 case credits.  Chat to your sponsor if you don’t know what this means.

Joining Forever Living in the UK

If you are in the UK we have handy online sponsorship forms accessed from the http://www.foreverknowledge.info website which allows you to join either through ordering the Business Owner Box or by purchasing the C9 (Clean 9 cleansing pack), which is the least expensive way to join Forever Living.

Business Owner Box

20 Ways to Raise the money to join Forever Living

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….

  1. Collect £2 or £1 coins
  2. Ebay your surplus clothes
  3. Cash in the attic – sell those treasures you have forgotten about
  4. Sell your unwanted belongings
  5. Do some overtime
  6. Baby sit
  7. Clean for Someone
  8. Walk dogs
  9. Clean cars
  10. Have a garage or yard sale
  11. Ask your family
  12. Credit Card (but pay it back from your first orders)
  13. Ask 20 people for £10
  14. Ask 10 people for £20
  15. Give up alcohol or smoking
  16. Stop eating out
  17. Take your own coffee instead of buying from Costa/Starbucks
  18. Do someone else’s gardening
  19. Do someone else’s shopping
  20. 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.

So what are you waiting for – start saving today – and come and join my team.

 

 

How Much Does it Cost to Join Forever Living in Ireland

As I’ve said before, when you join as a Forever Living Business Owner in one country, it then opens the door to any of the more than 150 other countries where Forever Living operates for you to start a business there too.  So if you have family and friends spread around the globe, you can help them start their own business wherever they are.

The steps you need to take to join in different countries can vary as each business is run independently under the Forever Living umbrella, so today I am going to focus on my nearest neighbours, Ireland.

How can you join my team in Ireland?

it is really very simple and inexpensive to join Forever Living in Ireland.  We have application forms and price lists both in Euros and in Sterling depending on which part of Ireland you are from.

To join you must fill out an application form and post to the Ireland office, with an initial order of just €75.00* or £50.00* to get started as a Novus Customer.  This gets you onto the first rung of the ladder and means you will earn 15%* commission your orders.  You must also include a €9* or £6* delivery charge with the order.  Many people join as a Novus Customer with the Clean 9 or F.I.T. Packs.

If you would like a copy of the order form and application form then please just contact me, making sure you let me know which part of Ireland you are from and which currency you require.

Business Owner Box

In order to skip this first rung of the ladder and get straight to the 2nd level then you can buy a Touch Of Forever pack or a Fast Start pack for €303.20* or £199.75*.  These are called Business Owner Boxes and contain all you need to get your business off to a fantastic start.  For a list of the current contents of these boxes then get in touch.

Touch of Forever

The 2nd level, Assistant Supervisor, means you immediately jump to 35% *commission on all your orders, which is an excellent profit margin for your new business.

Business Training

Once you have joined Forever Living then we can get you started building your business straight away.  There are company trainings held all over Ireland, and Business Presentations you can attend to meet and get to know other Forever Business Owners.

Once you’ve joined you will also get access to your own company websites where you can see full lists of these trainings plus many other useful videos and documents.

Next Steps

For more information then take a look at my previous posts How much does it cost to join Forever Living and How much can you expect to earn with Forever Living.

So what are you waiting for?  Get in touch today and come and join our team. Your only regret will be that you didn’t do it sooner!

How not to grow your network marketing team

I get a lot of requests from people to help them join Forever Living by paying for their business owner box (Formerly the New Distributor Pack – NDP). I know that the  investment seems like a lot of money to someone who has been made redundant, or can’t find a job,  but it is something I would never recommend to a Forever Business Owner building their business.

NDP_2014

Network Marketing

Any network marketing business takes time and dedication to really work.  It is not something you can dabble and play at if you want to make a good living from it.  It’s true that if you treat it like a hobby, it will pay you like a hobby, or even cost you money.  If you treat it like a serious business, it can reward you for many years to come.

You need to be really serious about wanting to start a new business, and this takes commitment and self sacrifice.  It takes investment in time and effort.  You need to consider that your initial investment is providing you with the tools to be able to run your own business.  If you are able to join too easily then you are more likely to give up when the going gets tough.

Network marketing is not the right business for anyone who is not self motivated.  You may be part of a supportive team, but no one will be telling you to get up each morning and get on with your day.  You are your own boss, you need to be able to stand on your own two feet.  And this starts with finding the way to finance your business owner box (BOB).

How can you help?

So if you are asked by a prospect to help them finance their BOB then I recommend you read my previous posts How Much Does it Cost to Join Forever Living for tips on other ways you can help a new team member to join you.  You can help a prospective new team member to put a plan in place to save the money they need to join, and support them in this process.  Then when they are able to join your team you know they are truly committed to their new business and an asset to your growing team.  I have some simple money raising ideas in my post 20 Ways to Raise the money to join Forever Living.

Your team will often be joining Forever because they need the extra income they are making to put food on the table, pay the rent or save for family treats.  Your new team member will not have the money themselves to pay for their new team members to join.  If you recommend that your team have to help their new team members financially then this would not be a duplicable process. So make sure you run your business in the way your sponsor showed you, then help your team members to do the same.

Working Together

Who do you want to work with?

Ask yourself something, would you want to build a team of people who expect to just be given the resources they need to start a new business?  Or do you want a team of people who have had to fight hard to join your team, shown real self sacrifice and self discipline in order to join you?

If you are in that 2nd group and have not found your sponsor in Forever yet then please get in touch about joining my team.  I’m looking for you!

Training with Forever

When you are looking at embarking on a new career then one of the most important considerations is the quality of the training available to you.  If you are exiting your comfort zone and trying something new then you need to know that you are going to be guided along the way, and learning new skills to build your personal development.

If you have been to a Forever Living Business Presentation then you will have seen how we take training very seriously in Forever. In the UK Forever are Investor in People Gold award holders, and we were the first direct selling organisation in the UK to receive this award.

Company Training

Forever hosts and runs a large variety of events both in the UK and internationally which are there to inspire, teach, and offer you the chance to meet with other forever business owners.  We have a website www.foreverknowledge.info which lists all the events and includes business presentations, success days and advisory board trainings held at out UK head office in Warwick as well as centres around the country.

As well as advisory board training led by a trained GP, Peter Atherton, beauty expert Dorne Parker and vet David Urch there are also accountancy training sessions and new business trainings held all over the UK.

F.I.T. Training in Milton Keynes

Independent Training

The forever knowledge website is full of information about the products, the business, and tools and advice you can use to build your business.  Also, depending on who your sponsor is, you may well be able to access websites and training tools online to get you started. When you join, your sponsor will give you the links you need to join these websites.  Some require a monthly subscription and others are free.  Get advice from your sponsor and others in your team about which resources they have found most useful before choosing which services are worth paying for.  Do make sure if you are browsing websites that the information you are reading is from a reputable source.

Team Training

Your team will also organise trainings which can take several different formats depending on which team you are in. If you haven’t yet joined Forever it is worth asking your prospective sponsor what sort of team training they are able to offer.  As you work your way up the marketing plan business owners are required to put in place training resources for their own team, but this can greatly vary depending on who has sponsored you.  In my team my sponsor runs regular training sessions which we can either attend in person, or join on line via a free software link.  The most successful leaders in my wider team also have on line trainings we can download and watch in our own time, and there are regular events we can attend in person if you live in the UK.

Also if you do not live near the rest of the team then often business owners will be welcomed by others to attend their more local events.  You will find when you go out and meet other distributors that most are always happy to help and to share what has worked for them in the business.  It is by nature a warm, caring and sharing community.

Team Training

Team Training

Personal Development

When you get your Business Owner Box (Formerly known as the New Distributors Pack) you will find your First Steps to Manager booklet.  You should book your first planning meeting with your sponsor as soon as you can, and they will support you in planning how you are going to build your business.  There are hints and tips and calls to action and it’s an excellent resource to start your personal development within Forever Living.  I also recommend that you read Peter Atherton’s book Aloe Vera, The Medicine Plant and David Urch’s book Natures Gift  : Aloe Vera in Veterinary Practice.  There are many other books which you can read to help with your new network marketing career.  Ask your sponsor about which books helped them.  You may be able to borrow the books from other team members rather than having to buy your own copies straight away.

When do you want to start?

So you can see how when you join Forever Living you will not be short of excellent quality training to really get your business growing.  What are you waiting for ?  Get in touch today and find out how you can join our team and start building your business, and we can book your first training session today.

First Steps to Manager

First Steps to Manager

Do you want to know more about Forever?

If you have heard about Forever Living and like the sound of the opportunity joining the business can bring you, what should you do next?

Come to a Business Presentation

One of the first steps is to attend a local Business Presentation, where you can learn more about the business and meet forever business owners to get your questions answered.  All business owners have access to a list of business presentations based all over the UK, and in any one of the over 150 countries where Forever Living operate.

Where are you based ?

Where are you based ?

These presentations are run by local business owners, just like myself, and can give you a real feel for the business and the kind of people you will meet when you join us.  In Milton Keynes we have a unique child friendly presentation too during the day which I enjoy attending.

However, attending a business presentation in person is not always possible.  You may not have child care (as most evening presentations are adults only) or live close enough, or have transport.  So how can you find out more about the business?

Well there are also live on line presentations available, please just use the contact form to ask about when our next presentation is available.  Live presentations are always better than recorded ones as there is more of a connection with a real person, and when you attend in person you can also get all your questions answered too.  When you join and are building your own team it is a great place to take guests along to.

However if a live presentation is really not possible then get in touch about viewing one of our recorded presentations.  These can be viewed on line at any time.

Next Steps

Having attended or watched the business presentation you may still have questions you need to answer.  The best way to get them answered is to have an informal chat with a business owner much like myself to see if this business is for you.  Once you have decided that Forever Living is right for you then it’s quite simple to get hold of your evaluation pack , with many of our best selling products included, as well as the literature you need to get started.  To find out how much the evaluation pack (or Business Owner Box (formerly New Distributor Pack NDP))  costs, take a look at my earlier blog post.

So what are you waiting for – get in touch now and start your Forever journey.  My only regret is that I didn’t start my journey sooner – don’t let that be your regret too.header

How much can you expect to earn with Forever Living?

The good news with Forever Living is that your earnings are uncapped, and no one will ever tell you to stop as you have reached your glass ceiling with the company. Also once you reach a certain level your business is willable so you are building a business to pass on to your loved ones.  The bad news is it is not a get rich quick scheme, anyone can earn large amounts of money with Forever Living, but it takes hard work, determination and time to get there.

There are 3 ways you can earn with Forever Living – and you tend to get out what you put in, so if you want to earn more, you do more.  If you have limited time to spend on your new Forever Business though you can start with a few hours and build up.

How much does it cost to join Forever Living?

So, you have looked at Forever Living, and you like the products, and you think that you could work with the person telling you all about them (hopefully me!), and you are interested in starting your own business. Your next question is always, “how much does it cost?”

This is quite often a stumbling block for prospective new team members, as they may be looking at the business because they need more money, and can’t find the funds in order to join the company in the first place.  It’s a Catch-22 situation.  So how can you get over this barrier?  You know the phrase ‘you have to speculate to accumulate’, or ‘you can’t make money without spending money’.  How many new businesses can you start with no investment at all?  I know of very few.

Start your Journey Pack

No Joining Fee

Firstly, there is no joining fee to join Forever Living, but you can purchase a start your journey pack for just under £200 in the UK, which gets you straight onto the 2nd level of our marketing plan. In this box, you get a selection of our best-selling products, many of which can replace products which you would normally be buying in your monthly shop anyway: products like toothpaste, deodorant, shampoo, soap and moisturisers.  So when you are thinking of buying a box, think of the money that you will then not be spending buying your usual products.  Also in the box are our best-selling Aloe drinking Gels and a whole heap of literature to really help you to get your business running.  The value of the products and literature is much more than the amount that you pay for them.

Hartwell Aloe Stall
Me and my Aloe

We recommend that you try everything in the pack, as you need to use the products to be able to confidently recommend them, but if money is an issue, you can sell these products in order to recoup your money, then as you start to earn from your Forever business, you can treat yourself to one new product with each new order that you place, thus spreading the cost of your own products.  We suggest that you start your business with a fanfare, and your sponsor will support you in hosting a business launch to which you can invite friends and family.  Many new business owners earn enough commission from having 2 or 3 launches to more than cover the cost of their business owner box.

Joining without the Start your Journey Pack

If you really can’t find the funds for your box, there is another way.  You can join the company purely by placing an order for products for over £75 (From 1st July 2020).  You don’t get as much commission when you join in this way, but it means that if you have a launch party and get orders from friends and family, you can join without spending any money yourself at all.  We would then suggest that you set aside your profits from these parties in order to buy your box as soon as you can.  You can also earn yourself the higher commission levels just by hitting a certain volume of sales. and then opt into being a Forever Living Business Owner.

If you are really struggling for money then take a look at my post 20 Ways to Raise the money to join Forever Living for some ideas on how to raise the cash.

What Next ?

So, if you really want to join Forever Living, but the cost of the pack is stopping you, then give me a call and we can put a plan in place to enable you to get over this hurdle and really get moving with your new and exciting business.

And once you’ve joined – then read my post on “How Much Can You Expect to Earn with Forever Living”.

If you are in Ireland then check out my post “How Much Does is Cost to Join Forever Living in Ireland” , for South Africa and surrounding countries  then look at Joining Forever Living in South Africa ,  or if you are in another country then get in touch and I can send you the details about joining in your area.

You can’t change your life if you don’t change your thinking.
