Joining a new direct sales company seems easy– you just fill out the form, buy your kit, and you’re off!– but if you’re wanting this to become a real source of income for your family, your sponsor (or the person above you) matters. You want someone you mesh with, but also someone who will challenge you; someone who is energetic, but not all over you all the time; someone you don’t mind chatting with, but they don’t have to be your best friend, either (and sometimes, your best friend may not be the best choice). How DO you choose a Java Momma sponsor?
The key to choosing a Java Momma sponsor is to ask them questions! When you go to any other new job, they interview you, right? Realistically, that interview is actually going both ways– if you hate the feel of the office, if the boss you might be working for seems overbearing, or any other of a number of things pops up, you won’t take the job. Choosing a Java Momma sponsor is the same. Ask your potential Java Momma sponsor some of the questions below, and come up with ones that might be important to you, too. You’ll be working with them quite a bit, ideally, which means you really want to make sure the two of you can work well together (which is also why the best friend may not be the best choice).
