Blah, Blah, Blah... are you in Network Marketing? The first comment is... I can't sell anything. Oh I get it, I hated the idea of selling because that was the last thing I wanted to do. However, we do tell people about a great restaurant we ate at, a movie we just saw or a book we just read. If our friends trust us or respect our opinion they will choose to... eat at the restaurant, watch the move, or even read the book. The only difference is that we do not receive anything for our recommendations, unless we own the restaurant, was in the movie or wrote the book. Here is what I say, instead of doing all the work for other companies that reap the rewards of your effort, I have decided to reap the rewards of my own efforts.
Happy Father's Day Ken! This photo was taken a few years ago and you are looking at my best friend and my husband of 29 years. He can't sell a thing... at least that is what he thinks. He sold me on him and he loves to share recommendations about books, restaurant and great movies to watch. Why, do we think we can't sell!
In the past few years in network marketing I have been able to improve every relationship around me. I now understand the meaning of listening to someone explain to me what they want out of their life, it is not what I want for them but what they want for themselves. It is easy to see the greatness in someone, even when they can't see it in themselves. Imagine doing something where you help others find their greatness and there is a revenue stream attached to the other end of it.
Network marketing is like that. "We make money by making friends, and we enlarge our circle of friends by making money for them, by helping them, by being of service to them." —Charles Haanel It is all about me helping my business partners reach their goals. I am on a mission to become a better "me" so I can help the people around me become a better "them."
We never know what to expect in life... sometimes the darkest moments become the brightest moments. Like you, I have had a life of ups and downs and at certain points in my life I wasn't sure if I could go get much further down.
