Every year, I ask my team to write, their ‘whys’. Why are they in the business and why do they continue to demonstrate? We are all self-employed in our roles as Thermomix Advisors (even me), so it’s truly important to understand each individual’s goals and dreams, and their reflections ‘why’ they are in the business. There’s a reason why even after 13-years I still am in the business and have a mature team of Advisors who stay in the business. The love for Thermomix is obvious a key element, but the team spirit amongst us is a reason to stay.
For many of my team, we were owners first and foremost, or they join the Earn and Demonstrate program and vowed to leave as soon as they have earned their Thermomixes. But then they stay. Initially, saying to themselves it’s just for a one or two, to earn the next incentive or simply for that extra pocket money it provides. They enjoy the comradery of being in our team, the regular branch meetings, and team meetings which bring them a sense of belonging.
Everyone’s journey is different and beautiful, which makes us a diverse team with different goals.
For anyone considering the role of a Thermomix Advisor, here’s a great testimonial of why one of my Advisors is still in the business after joining us in January 2015.
It helps me stay really engaged with my Thermomix, keeping up to date with everything new and not getting stuck in a rut.
I still love meeting new people and for the most part, witnessing first-hand their enthusiasm for their TMs.
I learn new things. According to my nephew (13), I’m an adventurous cook. And the pizza he had here was the best he’d ever had. Can you get a higher accolade?!
Over the years, I’ve earned some lovely things, almost by accident. My favorites are the Le Creuset cookware and Rockstar Ben, the baking mat, extra TM bowls (of course), the hand-held Kobold, and now The Friend.
It’s wonderful to have a bit of extra money going into a designated account-again, almost by accident. I’ve bought myself a MacBook Air, paid for a holiday to Cyprus-just for me, paid for a trip to Morrocco with friends, and bought a new dining room table-supposed to have arrived for Xmas but probably stuck in a lorry somewhere. Ah well…
There is nothing quite like the buzz of closing a sale but more importantly knowing the TM really is a great appliance and can help people in so many ways.
It’s also a great pleasure to have these little incidental chats with people that come out of the blue. Recently, my Polish Tesco shop delivery man spotted my TMs through the window and asked me how I was getting on with them…Of course he, his mum, and sister both have one and have had for years.
I’ve said before and I still think it’s true, 3 of the things I enjoy in my life are performing on stage, having fun at a party, and teaching someone something new. Being an advisor…Bingo!!
There are many advantages of being an Advisor from the ability to get a discount on your Thermomix, or earning it for free, by being part of a team, learning more about different cultures and cuisines, diets, and ways of life, earning commissions and Advisor incentives and exclusives from accessories to trips abroad. I have had so many wonderful experiences, rewards, and recognitions during my time as an Advisor that I cannot rate it enough.
