In this episode of the Modern Direct Seller Podcast, meet Academy Member, Dr. Kelli Knight. We chat about having grit and tenacity in your direct sales business — and, in life. Kelli shares her best tips about self-talk, recovering from setbacks and having your very own board of directors. We have some real talk about putting pressure on ourselves to reach milestones and how to reframe our strategies to know when to push, and when to pull back across every season of your life.
