Redundancy Is Good

I’m not speaking of that word in the way it would be interpreted in the United Kingdom.

Instead, I’m referring to a well-established engineering philosophy of having a backup. Or two.

The more critical the system to the mission’s goals, the more layers of reinforcement are applied.

Likewise, as you are building your business, you likely run opportunity meetings, where the company business presentation is shown and a few testimonials are given. That is a critical meeting in the process of bringing new distributors into your team.

In that process, remember that it can be fun to be the Big Hitter in your meeting… and also be sure to nurture and coach other distributors to do the speaking parts.

Even if the alternate speakers are slightly hestitant, somewhat unpolished, or simply do things a bit differently than you… give them room to grow into their roles.

Become a Leader of Leaders… and reap the rewards of a sturdy, confident team.

What’s your backup plan?

A technically-educated distributor will likely ask you this question.

In the world of engineering, the concept of “Critical Path” is important. The term refers to the activities (actions, deliveries, or shipments) by the company or its suppliers, that would halt the production of the product.

For example, a car can’t finish the assembly line process without tires. A submarine sandwich cannot be created without bread.

In some cases, a substitute can be used… another brand of compatible tire or a loaf of bread from another bakery in the case of that mom-and-pop independent restaurant.

But what if your direct sales company couldn’t substitute on a moment’s notice? (Some examples are: custom-made machinery can break, a single manufacturing plant makes your company’s unique product so you only have one source, ingredients come from a crop grown only in a certain country– and a drought would destroy the crop.)

Technical folks know these are important issues. Help them find the answers.
