Biggest Competitor Quiz

©2009 Christie Northrup, The Lemon Aid Lady™

Do you ever look at consultants in your own or other companies as your biggest competitors?

I remember being at conventions, seeing the successes of my peers, and telling myself I had to get to work because of the competition.

Personally, I've had prospects decline my recruiting invitation because they already knew too many other consultants representing the company and were afraid of the competition. Whenever a person has a choice between doing business with you and someone else, you have competition.

What party plan people don't seem to realize is that our biggest competition comes from other marketing channels:

  ● Retail
  ● Internet
  ● Mail Order
  ● TV Shopping Channels

If you're familiar with my "Fill-osophy" you know I know that the direct sales industry is the best of all industries combined!

Just for fun, here's a Shopping Center Match Game for you. are welcome to share this with others; just keep my name, copyright, and website attached to it.

Match the blanks with the name of retail store you think best represents the statement about your business. Because every city has different stores, I've given you hints by listing names of the stores.
