Build a Strong Direct Sales Downline Team with 5 Simple Tips

One of the best parts of being in direct sales is the fact that you can recruit, train and motivate a team that works for you not only building their own little empire, but helping to boost yours as well. It's the number one reason many direct sellers concentrate so hard at recruiting a team of their own.

If you are a team leader, you'll find that you must build firm alliances with team members. Not doing so would only risk losing them all together. You need to build up a solid relationship that will benefit you both.
How can you make certain your team is feeling included and supported, but still maintain some sense of balance within your own life and business?
