Guest’s Top Tips:

There will come a time when small daily tasks will turn into larger things. It grows as much as you are ready for it. This is the time that you have to ask yourself, “Ok, what do I have to do to make this bigger?”
You will lose people. There will be people who will not understand why you are never around and why you are busy and that you don’t have time for them anymore. This will give you a chance to meet much older people who will see where you are at and feel where you are at. You will then be able to establish appreciate and respect that will help you go through all the loss you had.
Instagram can be a good start point. You will be able to build your clientele and you will be able to directly talk to them.

Each channel is different. Some are small while some are bigger. Concentrating on how you can enlist distributors to reach these channels is a good idea.

Making people feel that they are on the same team, rather than making them compete against each is a big factor that shouldn’t be overlooked.
