Lately, I have been getting a lot of blank stares and looks that really seem to be saying” are you crazy”? You mean you aren’t going to run out there and find another dead-end, high-pressure sales job (my words) right away? You see, these days I run around everyday excited about working, happy with my new home business, thrilled to be learning more things than I ever thought my brain could handle, and most people I tell about it, just don’t seem to get it. I try to explain about helping others first and how not shoving my products at people is the way to go, and for the most part, they just stand there and stare.
Or the first question is always – “and when do you start making money at this?” It is so hard to explain this whole concept of network marketing and attraction marketing to someone who has never heard of it. Oh well, all I know is I am enjoying the heck out of it and I have never been happier – the money will come.
Don’t get me wrong I don’t blame people for their reactions, in fact that was me not too long ago. I really can understand where they are coming from, because for the last 15 years, I never knew there was anything else out there either. I spent every day trying to beat the next guy to the sale; all out for myself and not stopping to notice anyone else because – that is just the way it was.
If you weren’t behaving this way, you didn’t last too long in the outside sales industry. I didn’t have time to worry about helping anyone who was struggling. I needed to be concerned about where the next sale was coming from and what lengths I would have to go through to get it. But, hey that is what is expected in the “normal” sales world. Yuck!! I look back and wonder how I ever did that for so many years.
I actually got laid off from my last sales job, and it was the first time I had ever been “let go” from anywhere. I was really devastated at the time, but it did force me to look at myself and reevaluate everything – and by some dumb luck I was introduced to network marketing, and the rest is history. Well, really not so much about history, but a fantastic look into my present and future! – Now I feel like I can breathe for the first time in a long time. AAAAHHHH!
I have always loved helping people, but I just really never had the chance to do that much during my outside sales career. But now – look out! You see, network marketing and attraction marketing means just that: a network of people helping each other, with the main goal for everyone to succeed. You no longer have to feel like you’re alone or stranded by yourself out in the big bad world ever again. Everyone wins with this, and it feels great making a difference in someone’s life, no matter how small it may seem.
I have never been a part of something so great! And this week, just when I thought it couldn’t get any better, I found something else that has simply blown my mind! Are you part of a tribe yet? I was asked this question and had no idea what it meant. However, as I investigated it further I couldn’t believe what I found. There is a totally new movement out there and if you are not involved in it right now, you are already behind! It takes helping one another to a whole new crazy level!
I will talk about his more soon, but for now if you want more information about this and how you can get involved, send me a note in my Contact Me section.
I look forward to hearing from you soon!
Yours In Success,
