You’ve got a direct selling business and you are trying to build your team, however, but it’s so hard to find people that stick around and care about the business like you do! As if by some strange voodoo, you get stuck with having to recruit team over and over again without ever appearing to grow your team at all. And as if that’s not bad enough, a key player suddenly decides to pull out, leaving a big hole in your business! Does this situation sound too familiar?
