No not that NFL, the one that you and I are a part of that we don’t necessarily want to be or that we signed up for. I am talking about the No Friends Left league that most networks find themselves in at one time or another. I laughed like crazy the first time I heard of that term. Because I was definitely a part of the NFL and not the one I wanted to be part of in my younger days. Before being educated differently I was handing out flyers, cd’s, dvd’s and begging everyone I talked to about going to meetings and conferences, more or less harassing my warm market. At the time I had a construction company and I was driving customers away also.
But as life would teach it was actually a great experience, because upon being frustrated and part of the NFL I went looking for help and an education. So for all that most ridiculous up-line babble, I say "Thank you". I even had lunch the other day with a person who, funny enough used to be in my up-line. Yes, that’s right "used" to be, my entire up-line quit because the company was telling lies. Lies that they had preached to me for years and that I had discussed with them on numerous occasions. I am one of this person’s few friends left that will sit and have lunch with him, but it’s sad I said nothing about what I do now and the knowledge that I have acquired with education, and here we go again.
It is a great company, best benefit plan out there and what an opportunity. I just smiled and said nothing, because nothing and no where is where this person is heading. This person is truly one of the nicest people you could ever meet, but the up-line who took his money before and is taking it again has this person so brain washed that all they see is the greed.
Folks the greed will lead no where, you have to stop doing the things that are getting you a zero return. Stop handing out cd’s or dvd’s that you rarely get back, much less get a positive response. Stop going to these hour hotel meetings that you may at best have 2 prospects at. Stop paying for conferences that teach hype, greed and opportunity. Just stop already!
Find a real education or marketing, not sales, marketing. Where people who want and need your PRODUCT are there waiting for you. Stop pitching the opportunity, these companies make their money on moving PRODUCT, so should you. You can really avoid becoming part of the NFL if you would stop these above tactics. In fact you will have more friends and a larger down-line if you would get them a useful PRODUCT. Once you have that down-line, you and your friends will be able to watch the real NFL every Sunday or even go to the games live.
Thanks for spending a little time with me today.
