Here are some of the comments people have shared with us about our book:
- This guide was the only place where I could find an A–Z assessment of how to start-up a direct sales business. The guide was concise and thoughtful. And the one hour of consultation was the most effective hour I spent starting this business.
- I love the worksheets! You can write everything down. There is so much in here that I hadn’t considered.
- You were right there coaching and encouraging me all the way through.
- The book has opened my eyes to a lot of things that are going to need to be done to do this correctly.
- The major task list and the timeline alone were worth the price of the book.
- The Direct Selling Guide was a very useful tool in getting fast answers to the many questions I had.
- I liked the scope of the book, it made sense. It showed me from a company stand point things I just did not know, and it reinforced in a better way things that I did know. I believe it is worth every cent and more.
- The points you made about the thought process to set prices were very helpful. The insight you gave me led me to package my products differently. I’m excited about my new packaging!
- It was an eye opener for both of us.
- It explained things that I had never even considered.
- The StartUp Guide was exactly what I needed.
- This is an incredible source of valuable information for both startup and existing companies.
