Key Takeaways

[:32] Pam’s first question on business building: “What is your opening conversation to start talking about the products when talking to someone online (after talking to them about their page, or giving them a compliment)?”

[3:39] Question two: “I’m having issues getting DTs and LCs. I live in a touristy area in Maine so in the winter many are unemployed and don’t have the funds to do either. What advice would you give on this subject?”

[6:59] Question three: “What is the best way to inspire new DTs who don’t live anywhere near me?”

[9:23] Pam loves this question! “How do you not get discouraged from all the, ‘no’s and no responses?”

[12:26] Reflecting on the questions asked today.
