A Word About Recuiting At Family Parties…
I don’t know why this is, but almost every network marketer feels like they’re obligated to strike up conversations about the business at birthday parties, family get-togethers and other functions.
In fact, I remember one time a friend in my downline invited me to a big party and art show in a community she was a part of, and telling me…
"Gloria, you’ve gotta come to this, there will be so many people and you can help me recruit them."
Of course I did what I was supposed to do.
I went up and did my thing.
And looking back, I can’t help but think of how ridiculous this is.
Going to a party with a goal of prospecting and recruiting people.
Is it any wonder your friends and family roll their eyes and mumble…
"Can you please stop bringing up this thing again?"
While your face turns different colors and you cheerfully spew out…
"This is a good thing. And I’m gonna get rich with it and you should do this too."
I mean, think about it.
Doesn’t get any more weird than this, does it?
But your upline insists that you need to recruit everyone.
And since their “pile” is bigger than yours, that’s exactly what you should do.
Let's be honest, that’s a terrible way to do the business.
To constantly hound your friends and family and slobber all over them with your business.
Personally, I’d like to forget all those times I’ve done it. And hope they do to.
Because over the last 5 -10 years I haven’t talked at ALL about what I do.
I don’t bring it up because I don’t need to. I have ways to find leads and prospects without all the weirdness.
And I can’t tell you how liberating it feels, to go to a party and know that you do NOT have to talk anyone into joining anything.
Oh and by the way, the tables have turned and now they’re ALL asking me what I do.
A much better position to be in. Don’t you think?
