Blog   BFO ~ They Can’t Follow a Parked Car

BFO?

Brillinat Flash of the Obvious.

We cannot follow a parked car.

That’s not the BFO part….it becomes a BFO when we look at our vehicle……

Is it moving?

We wait, they wait…..our upline waits……..

NOT EVERYONE IS WAITING

While we remain in ‘Park’ …..folks cross-liine, upline and downline are moving……

Some of the folks in other great deals …..are moving.  And there are other great deals out there.

Also moving…..the no cost sign-up deals…..big challenge in 2010 is the ‘psuedo-free-good’ deal…….you know?……they are selling the future ……and doing some damage….. no one will ever be able to repair.  Some poor soul emailed me and let me know over 8000 reps in 10 months……how incdridble that is and she is doing…….oh, did I mention a total of 4 bucks in commissions?

Let me digress…….about these dumb as dirt deals……just a little. ‘K?   How much is your time worth?  Zero signup deals have been around for decades……..this easy-fun-sell-the-future crap where people who believe they have vision…..enroll the lazy folks never had any luck in networking……togther they …..combine their efforts to build a list for someone else who does not need them once the list is built…..and can now market stuff through the list…..duh?  OK……I’m off the bully-pulpit……..er……let me say this again…….enrolling people for nothing is an indication of what the enrollers time is worth?   How much is your time worth?  ZERO?  OK, I’, off the puplit now 🙂

PAIN IS MANDATORY, SUFFERING IS OPTIONAL

Anyone in sales or networking needs to brace for some pain…..until we move the decimal point a couple of places to the right…….we all have setbacks and disappointments that hurt…..once the checks are over $10,000 a month, we take those things in stride………..unless we are parked.

Is there a networker who has not experienced this?

Got a few people on your list …..you want to call but decide to wait……….for whatever silly reason…….

Then, when we do…..ouch!…..they are in another deal.  Pain.  Even more painful is if they are in your deal under some else. 2x the pain.

Suffering?

We stay in ‘park’ and bury the list…….so it happens again…….the first time is PAIN…….each one after that is SUFFERING.

The suffering is optional.  I suffered.

After the pain of finding a friend I had put off calling ……called me about a program……I was so hurt and so upset with myself…….I parked and pouted.

My small stuggling team did the same thing…..parked themselves…….in front of the TV…..whatever……never got them rolling again so I never got rolling again.

PARKING IN DIABOLICAL WAYS

Se we agree, yes?  That folks can’t follow a parked car?

The marketing plan is commonly referred to as ‘a vehicle’ ……..Incoming BFO……

The plan works, they all do……but the plan cannot sponsor anyone.

We are the drivers, we are the ones that turn the idea into dollars…….

How do we park today? …..what are today’s parking violations?

  • We do not keep first things first….our personal recruiting
  • Research ‘short-cuts’ on line for the ‘team’ …gimme a break 🙂
  • Enroll in multiple programs
  • Learn about ‘multiple streams of income’ ……knowing it ALWAYS works out as Multiple Streams of OutGo, never income
  • Design websites
  • Show our upline the typos in the training section
  • and on and on…….

JUMP START & HONESTY

Make 20 calls to new people today before anything else……email, rep return calls, webcasts etc….

We get in the drivers seat, put the key in the ignition [your list] and turn the key [pick up the phone]

Repeat…….19 more times.

It ain’t pretty…..I can send you some free sign-up pages insteasd….cool to look at…..

10-15 sites for MLMers…..so you can sell it to your teams…..and they can sell it to theirs…..

Not profound……but powerful.

There’s an old saying…..”You can’t cheat an honest man.’

Leverage that honesty …..by instantly going to a mirror and looking ourselves square in the eye………

And asking…..ourselvles…..Am I driving this vehicle or is it parked?
