You’ve likely heard how important it is to touch your business daily. Even if it’s just a small task. Working your business daily adds up and develops strong business building habits. Do you have a daily checklist for your business? If not, I got you covered. Grab this free checklist now! 

If you haven’t read “Atomic Habits” by James Clear I highly recommend it. Not only does it help with building daily habits, and breaking bad ones in your life, but it applies soooo much to building my direct sales business! 

One of my favorite quotes from the book: 

“Breakthrough moments are often the result of many previous actions, which build up the potential required to unleash a major change.” James Clear

Have you ever thought about someone that found success in direct sales– 

wow, she must have just gotten lucky… An overnight success…

Reality: you aren’t seeing the behind the scenes of her working her buns off! And if she’s successful, she most likely has some kick butt daily habits!

Daily Habits to Grow Your Biz

Today let’s talk about the actions we can take daily to move our direct sales business forward. Let’s build those daily habits that unleash a major change!

Let’s start by looking at habit stacking. Habit stacking is when we do certain habits every day, in a certain order in a certain place–they become routines that are triggered by another thing. That’s how we build daily habits. 

Here’s a couple examples: 

When I come home, I take off my shoes. 

When I wake up, I have a cup of coffee.

The key to stacking habits is to identify where and when this new habit will happen. 

So let’s do one together: 

I already have a habit formed of having a cup of coffee when I wake up. So now I’ll stack in a new habit. 

So here’s my new habit stacked in.:

Every day when I wake up and have my cup of coffee, I will reach out to 3 customers. I already know I will wake up and have my coffee, so I’m stacking in this next habit of reaching out to three customers. 

FREE Daily Checklist 

As part of us learning new habits for our business I’m including a FREE daily checklist worksheet for you! Keep it as is, or customize it to make it your own!

  1. What is your focus for the day–every morning I spend some time working through this checklist and I start with what my focus will be! Maybe content, maybe it’s planning, or maybe it’s family time!


  2. Another part of my daily checklist is to start my day with gratitude. After I set my focus, I spend a few minutes and job down three things I’m grateful for. I find this really helps frame my day in a positive way. If you aren’t already doing this, I encourage you to give it a try and see how it changes things.
  3. Next up! The work–I list out my top three things I need to accomplish! And these can be ANYTHING! So don’t just think business. Sometimes it’s home related like grocery shopping, other times it’s writing emails or updating my website.
  4. There is also a section on my daily checklist for things I do every day for my business like responding to messages on Instagram and Facebook, answering emails, and 3+3+3 = 3000+ Connections (If you missed my recent blog post on this crazy math problem, you can find it here.)
  5. Last but not least, if you’re a leader, I also have a special section for you! This is all about being consistent with checking in with teammates! 

Put In the Work 

Now, if you’ve made it this far, you are definitely someone willing and ready to put in the work to develop business habits! Hey, you may even be that person that newbies are looking at and thinking “wow she got lucky”. But we’ll know the truth. You were consistent and developed some business habits that led to your success!

Now grab your Daily Checklist below and let’s get going! 

I can’t wait to see what you accomplish!
