Elephant_In_the_Living_RoomJust in case I confused you… “elephant in the room” is an expression that means “an important issue that people are avoiding.”  Not a real, live actual pachyderm in someone’s living space…

I know…I know…

What in the heck is she talking about…???

I recently got “prospected”  by an “old school” marketer … And I asked him how his business was REALLY doing…So we danced around with that question for a little bit…and he got that I am not all that “wet behind the ears”…

He admitted he was having trouble keeping people in his organization…

And he said that he knew had to make some changes… but just didn’t think the  internet was the right answer for him because he didn’t have any computer skills…and because…

DRUM ROLL PLEASE……..

Network marketing is a relationship business…!!!

YIKES…

What is this guy thinking…???

That you can’t create and build relationships on the Internet like you would face-to-face…???
If that’s really true… why is Facebook the second most  visited site in the world…???

The last time I checked over 350 million monthly  ACTIVE users and 175 million people login to Facebook every day….

As we continued our conversation…I asked him ….What’s the first thing you ask a new business partner to do when you sponsor them..???

He looked at me and said …. I tell them to make a list of all of the people they know…

…The DREADED List of 100…

If you haven’t seen this video that Diane Hochman did a while back… watch it…VERY FUNNY…

And…some GREAT advice….

Anyway… my mind went off on a tangent there…

The rest of the conversation…

Then I asked him what happens after they’ve contacted everybody on their list….

He started to hem and haw….

So I said to him….they quit…right…???

….Right….

So I asked him why he thought that was happening…

Well…I got all of the typical excuses…the economy…didn’t realize that it was actually going to be netWORK marketing…not enough time…not enough people to talk to…talking to the wrong people…yada..yada…yada…

Anyway…you get the point…

I asked him a very simple question…and he looked at me like I had hit him on the head with a brick…

I asked him if he thought that his results might change a bit if he had a 24/7 sales person working for him 365 days a year…

He was like…well of course…but no one can work like that…

I said..of course they can…

We LOVE network marketing because of the leveraged income potential right…???

Well, I LOVE using the internet to help leverage my time by being a 24/7… 365 day a year ambassador for me and my business…

You know…he never even thought of it like that…

So he started asking me about the how’s and I simply directed him to this site…

And guess what…???

HE opted in to my e-Newsletter…
