…Who Finds Who First Is Very Important.

When you go head hunting and chase your prospect, the whole operation is doomed to

failure because you’re viewed as a nuisance! When they find you and seek you out,

you’re viewed as an expert.

"Positioning makes all the difference in the world."

I remember this one appointment I had with my son’s friend’s mom. She was adamantly

opposed to multi level marketing. The whole appointment with her was about as pleasant

as giving blood. I don’t know why I even bothered doing it. (Oh wait – I do know why!

Because everyone’s a prospect!).

Anyways. Towards the end of our lovely time together, I had given up trying to give a

good presentation and I said, “So what’s your single biggest objection to network

marketing?”

She immediately replied, “Taking advantage of your friends and family.”

I don’t know why but it was at that point during that appointment that I realized how

much I truly hated sitting down at someone’s kitchen table and going through my little

flip chart. And I realized that I completely agreed with her.

I used to get so excited about it. For a very long time I believed that network marketing

was "The cure to financial cancer" and it was my job to spread the good news throughout

the land. Maybe you’ve thought that yourself. Maybe you still do.

But what finally hit me – after I began feverishly studying anything about marketing I

could get my hands on – was this: Why make it harder on yourself than you have to?

Why expend valuable time and energy trying to force-feed your opportunity down the

throat of someone who’s entirely indifferent?

Why do that when there are millions of people who actually

do want to start their own

business? The ones who warrant your attention are the ones who take the initiative and go

out of th

eir way to find out how to do it. These people are prospects.

Another problem with this mentality that really started to wear on me is, if everyone’s a

prospect that means you have to constantly be “on the prowl.”

Anytime you first meet somebody, you’re always looking for that “in.” The “in” that will

allow you to bring up your opportunity. You know what I’m talking about don’t you?

Wouldn’t it be nice to not have to worry about that? To hold a conversation without

thinking of ways to recruit them in the back of your mind? Wouldn’t it be nice to be able

to "Separate your personal life from your business life"?

If that idea sounds appealing to you, keep reading. A little later I’ll talk about how to do

this by having people come to you instead.

Bad Howard. Bad, bad Howard. I want the follow-up article and I want it NOW !!! Lord, give me patience and give it to me NOW !!! Howard, I was an Amway distributor back in 1995, for a year. I spent thousands of dollars on tapes, books, conventions, to learn THE secret to success with that "opportunity". You hit the nail on what was most troubling me. And still was troubling me until... Well, it's still a problem for me. The way I see it, I've got to transform myself into a gigantic magnet so that people will come to me and buy everything I offer. Oh man, that sounded bad, didn't it ? Greed, greed, is that all I think about ? I wish it was not the case, that I was the most virtuous of the people on this planet. But it's not the case. I do need to make money for the objectives I have. You've got my full attention. Where do I sign up ? :) Philippe Moisan
