Not Everyone is right for you…trust me

Trust me when I say this! Not everyone is right for your business, sometimes you have to say no.

Sometimes you have to say no to people in a business

And, that is okay….you aren’t looking for just anyone who can fog a mirror.

In my early days in my network marketing business, I just wanted someone to say yes….anyone….

Do you ever feel this way?

And, that’s what I put out to the universe. “Just give me someone, anyone!”

I had a downline report filled with names of “anyones” who weren’t really serious. They thought it was more like buying a lottery ticket.

So, after a number of years, I have “wised up” and now I have a strict criteria of who I want to sponsor into my business, and I am not afraid to “just say no” to those who are not a fit. There will be times when you want to sponsor everyone thinking they will make you the money, and you can sit back….That is a big mistake, because you will spend more time trying to convince them of how great things can work out, but you will be loosing focus on what it is you have to do, which is find GO GETTERS, or hustlers for you that match your personality.

When you talk to future partners, or people you can work with, sometimes the most qualified will be the ones that sink your ship, because they are lazy because of their success with other ventures. It will take time to teach them this new business, and very frustrating because things again take time to relearn.

I had a person tell me all this stuff one day, and  I was amazed by his knowledge of everything and the path he took. Then as the conversation continued I started realizing that he wants an automated system like a black box or something…..

But, the problem really came when he spelled out for me what he is looking for –

Something totally automated….

No warm market (I get that, we can work with that!)

No calling or selling – the company does all of that.

No real contact with the people who would be joining the business.

Well, if anyone finds that magic pill, shoot me over some!

 

If it were THAT easy, everyone would be doing it, right?

C’Mon. Who buys that stuff?

And, at the end of the day, I want everyone to find what is a perfect fit for them, their goals and dreams and how they want to run a business! That’s the beauty of our profession and being an entrepreneur.

Here is where I saw the biggest challenge, for both of us. He wants residual income, and he wants to use the internet as a system.

But, he has no real interest in Internet Marketing or learning how to do it, but wants to automate his system. Doesn’t want to put any time into the online piece, but sees it as a necessity in today’s environment.

I closed my eyes and reflected back on my years of marketing other things, and since I was jumping into this new world, and putting in the work myself. I kind of got a new picture of things.

 

I’ve self-studied and self taught myself –

WordPress and Website/Blog Set up

Some HTML

Auto responders

Copy writing

Social Media – Facebook, Vimeo, capture pages and YouTube (Video Marketing)

I’m coming along with Instagram and Pinterest  ;-)

 

I’ve lost loads of hair, loads of sleep and missed many meals learning it…and have loved every minute of it…mostly….

 

That is how I know it’s not right for him – if you don’t feel passionate and want to jump out of bed to work on your business each day….then something is missing….(Hmmm, that sounds like another blog post…,I like the topic!)

 

I wish him the best, I really do, and will continue to grow a steady business that has less attrition than most because of the “human touch” and the passion I feel toward what I do. I hope he finds the same, I really do!

High tech is fantastic – high touch is the glue that holds it together.

THAT is what creates residual income, and a happy team you can share success with.

Not everyone is looking for that, and that is okay!

 

Know what it is you represent. Know the value in your business, your time and your coaching. Be clear on “who” you are looking for and the character traits that matter to you.

 

And, never be afraid to say – I don’t think my business is for you. If they agree with you, you have saved yourself and them a lot of trouble. If they insist on joining, then maybe you were wrong and time will tell. That’s worth being wrong over!

 

Do you have a business you love; one that will take you where you want to go? AWESOME! Work it hard and know what you are selling.

 

If you are still looking for that right business and right mentor, someone who has “been there, done that” and working to make another million dollar income. I am open for suggestions to make it happen for you.
