Paisley Raye is an exciting new direct sales clothing company making fun and stylish women's clothing made in the USA. It is also a great opportunity with less than 200 stylists. One of the important choices you will make when joining Paisley Raye is who will be your sponsor. Your Paisley Raye sponsor will guide you through the onboarding process and into your Paisley Raye journey. They will then provide support, encouragement and help for you in your growing business. It's important to find a sponsor that you are comfortable with and that you feel can meet your goals and expectations. These are what I consider to be the most important questions when you choose a sponsor.

General Business Questions
4. How much time do you devote to your business?
Understanding how much time they spend on their business is important when then comparing it to how much time you will be spending on your business. While it's not necessary to have a sponsor who works their business the same amount of time that you will, having someone who understands your business strategy is.
5. What methods do you use to sell? Online? In home?
It's important to know what methods your sponsor is using and how they compare to what methods you are using. If you are planning to sell mostly online you may not want a sponsor who only sells at parties and vendor events.
6. What do you feel are the strengths in the business?
In a perfect ideal your sponsor would be strong in everything but everyone has strengths and weaknesses. Make sure that they are strong (or working to become stronger) at parts of the business that or important to you, or may be weaknesses for you.

Questions about Leadership Style
9. What is your prefered method of communicating with your downline?
This is something that is important you are on the same page with your Paisley Raye sponsor. If your sponsor does most of her support through a weekly meeting at a time you can't attend then she may not be the sponsor for you.
10. What support do you get from your upline?
While a supportive sponsor is awesome, knowing the vibe and involvement of her upline is also important. It's important to know whether the sponsor's upline has team meetings, runs challenges or sends out newsletters. All those things are certainly not necessary but it is good to know which your potential upline uses to communicate.
