Before we get started with Lesson 1 (below) there is a little business that I need to take care of: In the lessons that follow I will assume that you are a Nature's Sunshine Products (NSP) member. If you are not yet a member, you can get a FREE one-year membership ($40 value) and FREE shipping on your second order when you purchase at least $40 in products (at the member discount) directly from our web site. To learn more visit the following page: http://weed.mynsp.com/benefits/index.html

There are never any purchase requirements nor minimum orders associated with an NSP membership. So start off right with a FREE membership and begin benefiting from our herbal and vitamin supplements today! http://weed.mynsp.com/benefits/index.html
If you do not like to order over the internet, or if you have problems ordering at our web site, contact me explaining your request and I will tell you how you can place your order and sign up by calling NSP's toll-free order entry number.
In each message that you receive as a part of this series, I will cover one or two business building principles as they relate to a new Nature's Sunshine business. I will start with the basics and cover more advanced topics as we progress. So let's get started:
NSP Business Lesson 1
The basics are the foundation upon which you will build your business. Don't underestimate the importance of a principle just because it is common sense or basic. When businesses falter, it is usually because one or more of the basics have been forgotten, and a return to the basics is often all that is needed to get the business back on track.
The two basic principles that we will cover in this lesson are:
1. Know your products; and
2. Know your company
Potential customers will often ask you specific questions about one of your products or about your company. They will judge your competence and ability to help them by your responses. Knowledge will provide you with confidence. If you radiate confidence your customers will likewise feel confident about your products and company making the "sell" something that they will want as much as you.
1. Know Your Products
The best way to become familiar with your products is by using them. You absolutely have to be your best customer! With NSP this is easy because we have so many products to choose from. No matter what you need, we have it! There is never a need to look anywhere else!
You can also learn more about our products by taking my Natural Health School online. The course is FREE! Registration is not necessary. All you have to do is go to the following web page and begin by reading Lesson 1: http://www.theherbspecialist.com
Be a regular "lurker" at the NSP Forum, another web site that I established to provide support for NSP customers, members and distributors. There are many experienced NSP managers who contribute to the forumsome have been with NSP for 20 years or longer. Many of them have a lot to offer and you can learn a lot from them. The NSP Forum is located at: http://www.NSPForum.com/welcome.html
2. Know Your Company
Whether you are interested in a part-time opportunity to earn a little extra cash, or a full-time opportunity that may eventually allow you to quit your regular job, rest assured that you are with the right company. NSP's marketing plan is flexible enough to work for anyone, no matter what your goals are.
Each year many new network marketing companies come on the scene, and each year many of them go under. The average life of a network marketing company is only 5 years. But NSP has been around for over 35 years! If you are trying to build a business, obviously you want to go with a company with a proven track record that will be around for the long run.
During that 35 year period NSP has been able to fine tune their compensation plan, which has evolved into one the best in the industry. This is not a "get-rich-quick" scheme with a gimmick. There is no need to "get in on the ground floor" because the NSP opportunity is as good (actually better) for members who sign up today as it was for the members who signed up when the company first began.
Learn more about your company by visiting NSP's web site. Start with the following page and follow the links on that page: http://weed.mynsp.com/quality/index.html
I have personally visited the plant twice, while attending Rising Star Conventions which I qualified to attend at NSP's expense through customer sales and distributor development. Eventually you too will earn an all-expense trip to a convention in Utah where you will be taken on a tour of the facility. In the meantime, I recommend that you take the online tour at http://www.naturessunshine.com/us/company/content1/product-quality/vitamin-supplements-are-the-highest-quality.aspx
Wishing You the Best in Health and Prosperity!
