Heidi Bartolotta has made a career of helping time-crunched professionals achieve greater freedom through part-time Melaleuca businesses. The key to regularly advancing and growing a Melaleuca organization, she says, is putting in a consistent effort.
A rewarding business
When Heidi Bartolotta shares Melaleuca with a new business builder, often a professional from corporate America, she doesn’t sugarcoat the details of building a Melaleuca business.
“This business is a lot of work,” she’ll say, “but you’re already used to a lot of work.”
Melaleuca, Heidi knows, will reward hard work like nothing else out there. Instead of staring up at an uncertain, never-ending corporate ladder, Melaleuca business builders have the opportunity to create their own residual income “golden parachutes” for the future of their families.
“There are a lot of people who are in a tough spot right now,” Heidi says. “But if they’re consistent with building their Melaleuca business, they can attain real freedom.”
Heidi knows that achieving that freedom requires dedication in the here and now.
In building a Melaleuca business, you don’t have to keep committing more and more time in order to earn a bigger salary; you can advance your business simply by making a concerted, steady effort every month.
Building a Melaleuca business,” Heidi says. “It’s just a matter of doing the right activities consistently week after week, month after month. You can’t build this business in spurts. That doesn’t mean you can’t build this business part time; you can. You just have to be consistent.”
When she says that, Heidi speaks from experience. “I made a decision to consistently build my business in December 2009,” she says. “The results didn’t come all at once, but after three months, my income had tripled.”
Today, Heidi has used that same consistent work ethic to grow her Melaleuca monthly check to $59,374.
To ensure she keeps her activities consistent, Heidi tracks the number of approaches and presentations she does every week. “Sometimes, those activities will result in six new customers, and sometimes it’ll just be one or two,” she says. “But I keep doing the same activities regardless.”
Heidi’s team, she says, takes the same approach. “Stacy Brown hasn’t stopped doing the same activities every month since she enrolled, and she’s continued to grow her organization even in months when she didn’t advance,” Heidi says. “Now, she’s an Executive Director II, and she has the volume ready for an advancement to Executive Director III. She’s an amazing example of consistency.”
Determined to keep advancing their businesses, Heidi and her team say they’ll continue to devote the same regular effort to their businesses month after month. Heidi sums up her business philosophy with her favorite quote on mindset: “It’s not what you do once, it’s what you do daily,” she says.
