I LOVE BILL PARCELLS

Legendary football coach, Bill ‘Big Tuna” Parcell’s never minced any words.

When one of his talented teams was under performing and had a 4-4 win loss record a reporter asked why he felt ‘this obviously talented team’ was only 4-4.

Parcells lit into him with a now ‘classic’ line.

“You are what your record says you are.”

‘yeah, but’…..the reporter continued, citing the talent level of his team in comparison to others.

Parcell’s blew is stack, “how dumb are you?  What a waste of time…..our record says what we are.  Period.  What part of that don’t you understand.”

Follow by a disgusted gesture and the coach let them know he didn’t have time for more stupid questions.

I NEED TO BE LIKE BILL

Are you sick and tired of every MLM ham’n’egger….posting in your social pages…..with rude, dumb, boring appraoches about garbage deals?

something like this?

The Next Billion Dollar Company

This MLM is the BIGGEST thing since XXXXXXXX

Don’t Miss the pre-pre-pre launch of the pre Launch….[gimme a break, why don't they just launch?]

Millions Will be Made by those who get in early….

Over 1000 years experience on management team, exclusive, double patented, triple trade-marked unique product…….so secret no one knows what it is or what it does :-)

The owner has built SEVERAL BILLION Dollar Business……walks on water, can fly without a plane, doesn’t kick dogs and was asked to be Pope!

ALWAYS LEADING TO THE SAME EXACT STATEMENT

This is going to be the next billion dollar company…..”

I’m going to start to quote  Big Tuna Parcells, “Your record says what you are.”

[BTW, list just below of actual volume Top 98 companies did]

FACTS NOT FICTION

The truth is our industry has not seen a single new company start and get to a billion in annual sales since NuSkin…..we’re talking decades, folks ….plus the inter-webbie thing…..and while a billion is still a lot, it’s no where near what it was when NuSkin turned the trick or Herbal Life a decade +/- earlier.

It occurs to me that people will join companies THIS MONTH like those on this list of Top 100 [MLM Industry Stats] in sales….or other SOLID up and comers and make lots of money……yes with Primeamerica, Avon, Tupperware, Xango, Nuskin etc…..and make multiple six figure incomes….because they ……get it….not because the ‘found the next billion dollar monster’

Take Others To The Top

They take people to the Top with them.  They understand what the requirements are……..

The main thing that we have to do is realize when we approach someone about our business we are going in through their dream chamber.

We are using their hopes, dreams, longings and desires……to motivate them…..to make a decision…..it’s a lot to risk….for them

……we are asking for trust, to trust we can give them the guidance to help them help themselves…..and improve their life.

And we simply owe it to people to know, not only that the company is solid…..but that we can teach them the skills help them take advantage of the opportunity…..

There are more good companies than the Top 100 listed here……but if they are not on this list we better make damn sure we do more than fall in love with an idea or read a website ….CHECK the companies you are considering out….with 3rd parties….NOT just what the company has to say about itself and NOT what reps who signed up think…….

If they are not publicly traded, you better do your homework before investing money and the dreams of others…..real homework.

The correct thing to do is do 3rd party research [google's great but not for this]….get the facts if they are not on the list.

If someone tells you a company is well capitalized……ask,

“What does that mean?”

“What outside source did you use?”

“Where can we verify that OUTSIDE the company and your upline?”

 

 

 

 

 

Facts, Get The Facts

 

 

 

 

DO YOUR HOMEWORK

I root for all of them…..success stories in the industry are good for all of us.   But the phrase ‘next billion dollar company’ will tell you the person you are talking to ‘bought’ in hook-line-and-sinker and doesn’t know enough about the industry ……for you to place the dreams of your and others one.

1. Are they registered with DSA.  It is a BALD FACE LIE that companies have to wait 2 years…..they can get DSA’d up to 6 months before they open.  Anyone tells you otherwise….they are lying or believed a lie.  Either way, don’t put your faith in their ‘research.’

2. Check with BBB

3. If you’ve got a friend who can get a D&B run, do it.

Here are the Top 98 in 2010 and exactly what the revnue was……
