If you are wondering how to find a  ZYIA Sponsor or Mentor, this is the right place.

Who is your mentor?

Though you are in control of your success, it will come naturally with the right sponsor and team. Do they have a working knowledge of business? Good communication style? Do you relate to the culture of the team? 

If not, you could find yourself paying a lot of money for a business coach like I did in my first 12 months.

First and foremost, do your homework! Google! Get on social media! Who stands out?

You’ll likely find few (we’ve go some phenomenal women in this brand!), so here are some questions to consider:

Does he/she want to do everything for you?

This is a biggie. If your potential ZYIA sponsor is offering to hold your launch event for you, it’s a big red flag. In many cases, it means they are not going to be invested in your learning and development.

Your launch is hands-on training. If your ZYIA sponsor wants to do it for you, it’s a shortcut. Not good.

Can he/she provide financial  counseling?

This is a 1099 Independent Contractor position. While your mentor shouldn’t be your Accountant, he/she should be able to guide you on where to maximize the money you invest into your business as well as what you can write off.

As an example, you’ll write off the cost of the starter kit ($295), expenses, + a % of your monthly phone, Internet.

Side note: if your mentor or sponsor is encouraging you to buy lots of inventory or too many personal purchases, you have every right to push back.

ZYIA Active does not require inventory but we recommend you aquire staple size samples over the first 90-120 days if in person events are part of your sales plan. Home Office in Utah provides shipping services.

We do not require inventory but we do recommend you acquire enough size samples over the first 120 days to cover yourself if you intend to go to events in person.

Leggings are great pieces to invest in since they are our “bread and butter” items. Often, customers will begin with leggings and try other items in the line because they’re so impressed.

That’s where size samples are helpful. Your mentor can recommend which ones to invest in and how to strategize with sizes.

Does he/she have marketing expertise?

This job is a mix of marketing and sales. We recommend you market on social media and sell over email or in person at fitness, retail, or in home events.

Your mentor should be well versed in the way you intend to promote the brand. 

I see people all the time who join with someone who has no clue about the platform they want to do business on. It’s not pretty.

I’m not telling you, Instagrammer, not to join with your friend who only does Facebook but you will want to make sure she’s prepared to do some self development if you are on her team.

Does he/she treat ZYIA like a business?

ZYIA Active representatives earn 20-28% commission. You can earn initial costs within the first month.

Whether you are a hobbyist or career builder, you will want a ZYIA Sponsor or mentor who has the mindset to help you protect your profit margins & treat the venture like a business.

Otherwise, you become your best customer….and that’s not a good thing.
