Final Challenge (#8)

This week we will finish the RACE……moving forward with


Here’s your FINAL challenge for the RACE:

1.  Watch the video and read the devotion on the home page.

2.  It’s easy to get overwhelmed at this time of the year with all that we have going on personally.  The key to finishing your RACE well and to continuing on with a truly successful business is to STAY FOCUSED and do a little in your business each and every day. Your main challenge this week is to work your business doing BUSINESS BUILDING ACTIVITIES for at least 15 minutes each day, Monday through Friday.  This means that things like organizing and cleaning your jewelry don’t count. 🙂 (See Building vs. Maintaining Your Premier Business handout attached this week’s email.)  Also, be sure to follow up with any prospects still in your pipeline.  To help you, use the 2 sheets attached to the email: “How to Follow Up and Close The Deal” and “Overcoming Sponsoring Objections.”

3.  Now that many of you have sponsored (or will sponsor SOON!), it’s important to make sure you’re training New Jewelers in an effective way to get them off to a great start.  Evaluate what you have been doing in the past and determine what you need to do more effectively in the future.  Also attached in the email is a great checklist to help you make sure you’re covering all the bases.  We highly recommend that you use this in the future for each person you sponsor.  (See “New Jeweler Training Timeline.”)  It works and really helps the new jeweler be confident and more competent in her new business, which, in turn, will help her be successful.

4.  Reflect on “hurdles” you have overcome in your business throughout this RACE.  Let your partner and me know 1-2 things you’ll be carrying forward and applying to your business on a consistent basis.  PLEASE ALSO POST THESE 1-2 THINGS ON THE BLOG AS YOUR FINAL ENTRY, ALONG WITH THE MOST IMPORTANT THING YOU TOOK AWAY FROM PARTICIPATING IN THE RACE. Carefully review the sheet, “10Thoughts about Leadership,” attached in the email, to give you ideas.  Remember…first you must consistently lead YOURSELF before you can effectively lead others.

5.  To complete the Challenge, have your team captain send us a joint email with both your stats for the week and both of your answers to the question in #4.  This is the last Challenge for the RACE and ALL the winners will be announced at our LAST PIT STOP CONFERENCE CALL on Sunday, April 25th @ 8:00 p.m MST.  As before, this week’s Challenge is due this Saturday (April 17) by 10pm.

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.  Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Hebrews 12:1-2
