Don't skip any steps. Basic to getting this learning curve out of way is setting up your tools. By that, I mean:
· getting your business cards ordered, · setting up your 800 number, · getting your FAX system in place (if you plan to have one), · putting your contact email in place, · getting your website up and running, · setting up your merchant account, · placing your initial order with company (if necessary), · filing all your required paperwork with company, · getting your local vendor's license, business license, and anything else required by your local city, county, or state government.
While you are completing above processes, create folders for each project to hold all copies of paperwork you'll be getting. Be sure to keep a copy of everything that you send out, whether by FAX, email, or snail mail.
Meanwhile, in between setting up all above, read or listen to each step of training in succession, because in most cases, one thing builds on other. Take time to learn your ABC's and don't worry about what you will take up in "college"! You won't have to concern yourself with college studies if you don't learn your ABC's first!
And above all, keep things as simple as possible. Not only for your own sake, but because, if you don't, people you present your opportunity to will get idea that things are much too complicated in your business to get involved with it.
They won't believe that they can learn it. They won't want to. But if it appears to be simple for you, they'll see that it would be simple for them, and you'll increase your success rate dramatically!
