So you’ve got this great person who you’re SURE will do well for themselves with the help of your business. They’ll make a great rep, they’ve got contacts, they are outgoing… but there’s a problem. They don’t have the money to sign up.
So what do you do? If you’re anything like me you really want to help other people achieve success.
Especially if they’re friends of yours. You might even offer to pay their sign up fee to help them. Some promise to pay you back, and you believe some of them will.
But 5 months pass by and they haven’t done a thing since they got started. That excitement wore off.
So why do they quit? BECAUSE THEY DIDN’T SPENT A DIME OF THEIR OWN MONEY! That’s why! So they DON’T CARE!
Rocket science, right? Well, I just realized it. I knew it all along, but I just REALIZED IT when I looked around at people I’ve wanted to help who quit- and only 1 of probably 10 I paid for have stayed over the course of 2+ years.
I was young and excited…and naive. My advice to you? DON’T DO IT!
If someone over 25 doesn’t have the few hundred dollars needed to make extra money then they’ve got more problems then just needing the opportunity you’re offering them.
And one more lesson- people, rich and poor, will FIND the money if it’s something they really REALLY want.
If someone tells you they don’t have the money they will either GET IT, or they’re lying to you.
I can’t tell you how many people have told me they wanted to but didn’t have the money only to post pictures on Facebook of the new dog, tattoo, pair of shoes, etc that they got that are often MORE expensive than the cost to join my company!
Put your energy into people who have the drive to GET the money if they don’t have it and are just looking to better themselves and make more of it.
That’s just my 2 cents….
What do you think? Have you had a heart as big as mine and paid for friends to join your opportunity only to have them be dead weight?
