Happy Sunday morning!
There is a lot to be grateful for today as we continue on this journey of Soul Purpose. I am grateful as well for the words of support and encouragement and I am motivated by those who share their eagerness to get started. I am pleased to share that we have indeed begun and we have done so in record time. Our online enrollment is ready to go and we are ready for the conversion of visionaries to full fledged consultants.
What is most phenomenal is that we started working on putting together Soul Purpose in December of 2007 and launched our vision in January of 2008. In 12 weeks we have built a website, developed the product line, crafted a business plan, etc, etc, etc. Twelve weeks and 3000 people who have committed to the vision. We are now ready to launch, to have our visionaries convert to becoming consultants and to begin selling products. This process for a traditional start-up direct sales company usually takes about 18 months. We are starting in record breaking time.
Imagine without collecting a dime from consultants we have gone from a beautiful vision to a full fledged company in 12 weeks. This is nothing short of a blessing and a testimony!
Interestingly enough I also feel personal pressure and anxiety to have started selling yesterday but to do all of this correctly especially with our technology and back office systems we can only move "so" quickly and our manufacturers can only manufacture products and print labels "so" fast.
I agree let's get started and continue to move along as quickly as possible; the time is here and now. Our goal is to have our first grouping of products available at your launch parties on April 12th and new products coming on line every month thereafter. I am pushing and working as hard as I can to do this as quickly as possible but also very mindful that only the best will do and wanting to provide to each of you the best that God has blessed me to offer and the best quality products and systems that you deserve.
My biggest concern and I must admit "fear" is rushing and then putting out products that are not as great as you expected and business systems with glitches. I must also admit that as a black woman I know that I will be harshly judged and criticized if what I produce is shaky and not of the best quality. My fear is that it will be said that I rushed and did a second rate job. I am mindful of my personal integrity and vision and aware that it is important I be respectful of these things as well.
Thank you for your confidence and believe it or not I am encouraged by a bit of impatience and challenged by your feedback to do my best because that is evidence of anticipation of great things to come.
Yes, this is the time to be prayerful for success as entrepreneurs and business people; let's move ahead to the prosperity that we all deserve.
Thank you and much love,
