Been Criticized Recently
Pretty funny, really. A great couple called to let me know that some folks who just hit a decent pin level were warning their team about ‘the laziest networker’. They just don’t like the name.
They think it sends the wrong message to their team.
This hubby and wife team is working around the clock.
Good for them! Nice to see people working hard and making progress.
Oh, my great couple… yeah, calmed them down. I really do get a big kick out of that stuff, and the stupidity that always follows.
Imagine telling your team ‘you can’t make big money if you don’t work full time’ …that’s the funny part.
Evidently, no one has explained to these kids that close to 90% or more of their group is working ‘part-time’ …at least according to the DSA (Direct Selling Association). It’s how I started, you too, most likely, eh?
Here are the facts (DSA, Not me) – showing the % of people in our great industry that work part-time.
2008 2010 2011
91.1 92.5 91.1
Personally, I really did get a big kick out of the couple that called me, worried my feelings may be hurt. It was nice. But at the same time, I did feel really sad of folks in the groups of the folks who were tossing me under the bus… at least the part-timers.
Do you get how dumb and harmful that is? (Not slamming me, that’s cool, but slamming the idea you can make great bucks working very part-time).
In essence, they are telling ALL people working part-time that you simply cannot make it working part-time. Good grief.
As a single dad, raising 2 kids on my own and working 60-70 hours a week on my job to keep the lights on and food on the table, I’m sure glad I did not have an upline telling me that ‘you can’t make big money part-time.’
Isn’t making more money in far less hours the point?
I could be wrong but I thought the target, the objective was and still is… time leverage.
Here’s a lazy fella’s point of view… and a 3 for 1 kill shot at leveraging your time.
Hands-on, Baby, for MLM Leverage
Big leaders and blowhards who believe they are big leaders don’t seem to want to make calls with new peeps… it’s 3 for 1 leverage. OMGoodness…
1. They learn what to say and do
2. You can teach several at the same time… heck, we’ve had 20 to 200 listening to us make calls.
3. Your leaders, (who you trained by BUILDING HANDS ON) will copy and you’ll be on the beaches of the world, or playing golf, or spending time with your daughter, son …”what-evs” as the kids like to say.
Look for and love leverage.
Here is a cool networking skill that will get a yes 90% of the time, rejection-free…
Hands-on baby, hands-on… good old fashion ‘show and tell’.
Would you like someone to ‘tell’ you what to do or would you prefer someone who will ‘show you’?
Which do you think works better?
Hell of a lot easier to hit bulls-eye if we know the target.
