With Watkins – It Is All About Choice! What you decide to achieve with your Watkins Membership is your choice completely. Associates can “roll out” their Watkins Businesses in many different ways. Watkins offers great flexibility. Building a personalized Business Model that fits your style, time availability and resources is a great feature of Watkins. The question is, “What do you want your Watkins Business to look like?” The following are several choices that you will have as a Watkins Associate if you should decide to join.

Choice 1. Benefit from the Associate Discount. Many Watkins Associates use their membership in Watkins to benefit from the 25% Associate Discount. They can buy their favorite products, delivered to their door at a great discount. This is very appealing to many people. Many Associates are content with this level of involvement in Watkins. They only desire to use the products personally and share with family and friends. And that is perfectly OK!

Choice 2. A Focus on Retail Sales. Obviously in our business nothing happens until somebody sells or buys something. Watkins is a sales company and therefore many Associates focus on building a Retail Business. These Associates use various strategies to build a Retail Business through Good Tastings/Naturally Living Parties, setting up booths at fairs and farmers markets or using Catalog Distribution to grow their Customer Base and produce an ever-expanding monthly sales volume. Many of these Associates grow very viable Watkins Businesses and we are always grateful for those who desire to focus primarily on retail sales. However, focusing only in retail sales will probably not generate large amounts of residual income. When a single Retailer stops selling his or her business is essentially done. There is little opportunity for business continuance.

Choice 3. An Emphasis on Sponsoring. Many Associates work on building Retail Sales and personal use of the products but also demonstrate a serious emphasis on Sponsoring new Associates into their Watkins Organization. They recognize that they can dramatically increase their sales volume by building a hard-working and enlightened team of Associates. The more people they have Retailing and Sponsoring the bigger their numbers become. Many Associates who emphasize Sponsoring grow a successful team that can create a viable and successful Watkins Business. The emphasis on Sponsoring can support the development of Managers and lead to higher Titles in the Watkins Compensation Model. Through an emphasis on Sponsoring an Associate can grow a substantial and lucrative Watkins Business that will generate Residual Income for a lifetime. There are no limits on the growth potential for an Associate who becomes a sponsoring legend.

Choice 4. Emphasis on Creating and Managing an International Distribution Organization Working in a Strategic Alliance with Watkins, Inc. as Supported by The Summit Group. This choice is for career-minded Associates who want to become the CEO and Owner of a significant and powerful enterprise. These are Associates with vision. They understand the power and potential that is inherent in the Watkins Business System. They fully appreciate and deploy the remarkable support systems and offerings of the Summit Group. They consistently encourage and involve their Associates in the training and sponsoring support systems of the Summit Group. They build quickly and aggressively because they employ the systems and technology that are available to them. They know “why” they are in business. They have a clarified sense of purpose. They have a plan and they execute the plan with passion. They grasp the big picture and understand how all aspects of the system work together. They promote Retailing and Sponsoring and work diligently to grow Mangers who can lead effectively. They are up-beat, positive, affirming, growth facilitating and caring people. They consistently train, motivate, encourage and inspire their downline to greater achievements. They COACH a highly successful enterprise. Career Associates have elected to optimize the awesome potential that is inherent in the Watkins Business System as supported by the Summit Group.

Now consider this: The awesome alliance of Watkins, The Summit Group and YOU can become one of the most dynamic and successful business enterprises in North America. The choice is yours when you become a Watkins Associate!
