Starting your Thermomix biz

Starting your Thermomix Biz

Have you been thinking about starting your own Thermomix business? Or are you interested in joining the team simply to earn your TM6? There are many different reasons to become a consultant because we all live very different lives. And with how much our world has changed there is now also a lot more flexibility when you build your Thermomix business. You can build your business face to face or virtually, or both. The choice is yours! You can read more about working with Thermomix here.

My reason for starting my Thermomix business is very different to the reason I am still a consultant today (6 years later). I have written blog posts about becoming a consultant, the training and the perks and even some tips about being a consultant whilst working full time or being on maternity leave. I am now a mother to two gorgeous girls (aged 5 and almost 3), still working part time in my local government job and now I am also studying kinesiology. So simply put I am a busy woman!

You may be wondering how I fit Thermomix around all that I do. To be totally honest with you I simply make it fit where I want it to. My family comes first so if we have busy plans then I block that time out for my family. I am always available to my customers if they have any questions or want to have a quick chat. But in terms of building my business I keep my availability on my terms. And with the new flexibility to work virtually it is a lot easier to ensure I maintain the work life balance that I want. I can work from home while my girls are busy playing with their toys or watching a movie. Sure they pop up in my zoom calls to say hi to my customers but once the novelty wears off they go back to doing what they were doing. I plan to start doing some Facebook lives but I’m not sure I’m ready for the random interruptions yet. I imagine it will be like when I am on an important phone call and the girls decide that is the time to have fight. Yet that is one of the realities of family life so I should just embrace it already!

We all have our own commitments and lifestyles. The best thing about having a Thermomix business now is that you truly have the flexibility to build it your way and you are empowered to work smarter, not harder.

So how do you get started?

If you have any more questions about starting your Thermomix business please contact me. I would love for you to join my team. Even if you are not in my physical team (it’s refreshing that you join your local team and attend your local meetings and events) you will still receive support from me.

Don’t have a TM6?

No worries! You can earn your Thermomix TM6 and build you business at the same time.

Start your Thermomix business

I was recently asked for tips about managing being a Thermomix consultant around a full time job. I have written blog posts about becoming a consultant, the training and the perks but I haven’t shared my experience as a consultant while working full time. And with an exciting limited time offer to join the team and earn your Thermomix I thought it was time I shared my tips with you all.

I’m on maternity leave from my full time job and after working through my postnatal depression have loved stepping back into my Thermomix business. So now I am managing being a consultant around being a mama – and that is a full time job! So whether you are working full time or are a full time mama this blog is for you!

My Thermomix business brings so much fun and positivity into my life. Who doesn’t love eating great food? It’s so great being a part of helping people improve their lives through simplified cooking, improving their health and having more time for what matters. This used to balance out the negative parts of my full time job and now as a mama, it gets me out of the house and talking  to adults (no more  baby talk!).  So here’s my top five tips of your Thermomix business.

My #1 tip is know your why. Why do you want to be a consultant? Is it for financial freedom? To save money for a holiday? To get your Thermomix in your kitchen? To meet like minded people? To help people improve their lives? There are countless reasons why you would want to be a consultant and the only reason that matters is your big why. Starting your own business isn’t easy. It is a huge personal growth rollercoaster. You have to step outside of your comfort zone. Meeting new people, putting yourself out there, asking for the sale, fear of failure, even fear of success. Yes this is a thing! I had to work through this last year. Knowing your why helps you work through your personal development.

Tip #2 is to plan ahead. Look at your weekly and monthly commitments. When are your non-negotiable times? Family time, special events, sport commitments, or even just down time. Set all of this in stone so you can then work out your availability for Cooking Experiences, deliveries, cooking classes and meetings. Working backwards like this will help you create boundaries. When you start you will want to book as many Cooking Experiences as possible and that is great. But if they affect your previous commitments or you find you over-extend yourself then you may feel burn out. And as an introvert I learnt the best thing to prevent burn out was to honour myself after a Cooking Experience or event. Introverts gain their energy from within themselves. So a nice relaxing bath was my favourite thing to do after a demo.

A great tip I learned in training about planning was to book your cooking experiences every second week and use the alternate week for deliveries, admin and working on other parts of your business. Last week I had a cooking experience and two events. This week I have my follow ups and a delivery. I have also been lucky that I have been able to take Maya with me to my last few deliveries.

Tip #3 is all about preparation. While working full time I did most demos on the weekend or even after work on Thursday/Fridays. If it was straight after work I would prep or bring the ingredients to work (we had a seperate kitchen which was handy) and prep after work. I would also bring myself something to eat for a super early dinner and eat that at my desk (of course this would depend on your workplace/role). The new Cooking Experience is a lot easier to prep for than the previous demos which is great juggling this with mama duties. As with most things in mum life prep is easiest when baby is sleeping. And to make things easier when you start as a consultant you are given a packing list so you know what ingredients you need to provide 🙂

Tip #4 is networking. Networking was a word I used to hate. I think that ties to my introvert personality and finding crowds drained my energy. But now I love it. I attended two events on the weekend and had a great time. So my tip with networking is to be open to all possibilities. With every encounter I always remind myself there are several outcomes of success such as booking a demo, making a sale, signing up a recruit and picking up a customer who doesn’t have a consultant anymore. They can be your biggest advocates because they may not have had the best customer service so they will love your help and rave to their friends and family about you.

Tip #5 is support. Build your support system to help you build your business. Talk to your family and friends about what you want for your business. Talk to your team about your wins and losses. If you have a partner, talk to them about your plans and ensure you are both on the same page. Building a business has it challenges but it also has amazing rewards. I attended the local farmers market on the weekend and my lovely hubby walked down with our baby girl when she was due for her feed. As a breastfeeding mama being away from my baby takes a bit more planning if I need to express (we don’t have much of a freezer stash anymore) so to be away from her and still get to feed he was really special for me.

And as I mentioned at the beginning of this blog post one of the rewards of starting your biz could be earning your Thermomix.
