Hello Everyone:

I do not suggest that one joins the first person who told them about anything. Choose the person whom you have the best quality relationship with. The one who knows what he is talking about best, has manners and has integrity. You need to trust them with your life.

Think about your attorney, car agent or tax preparer. Did you just select the first one you saw. You had seen how well did he answer your questions when you needed him. Did they stumble or stutter? Or did they get to the point in plain English?

ofcourse not based entirely on 'helpfulness' but to see if they can help terms of the opportunity...by emphasising knowledge and leadership

Hey Claudia, keep up the great work! You are ahead of the game!

By all means go with the "better" choice for you. In MLM and Network Marketing there is always an upline and usually that's where the millionaires are.

Hi guys,
In reply to the question my personal opinion would be to contact both and see who is the most helpful, do they both seem to be talking among the same lines? If yes, then how long do they take to get back to you? You may find that although Mr Stud may have alot of success, you will probably find that alot more people will be contacting him and his group will be much bigger.

We only have so many hours in a day, therefore he may not respond to you as quickly as you need therefore it doesn't matter who you join as long as they are there to help you when required.
Hope this helps 8-)

So what if you join with Joe blow over the Librarian, and Joe Blow kicks the bucket? Are you screwed? I hope not! Success isn't built on the back of any one person, rather a team of people.
Integrity speaks for itself, and if the Librarian attracted you to this grand opportunity, bless her by joining under her. If the person who shared this opportunity is someone you just can't stomach to be around, then what's the point?
The deciding factor on joining an opportunity isn't your sponsor, rather the 5 Pillars, thats the litmus test! Chances are the heavy hitters won't have much time left for you anyway, so don't count on their support, get out there and build your own Legacy, and have fun along the way!


LaneReiss wrote:Great post. What if we assume you have already taken the necessary steps to educate yourself and build a network of contacts, and were now in the research phase to find a good company when Ms. Librarian contacts you? Suppose Ms. Librarian approaches you with what you feel is the perfect opportunity for you. Allow me to suggest one alternative to your decision of choosing Mr. Stud.
Since you have already established yourself as a leader in attraction marketing, and know that your success is essentially dependent on your own efforts anyway, perhaps you should give Ms. Librarian the option to learn from you. Introduce her to the principles of attraction marketing, and tell her you prefer to work with people who follow those principles. If she commits herself to the principles of attraction marketing then agree to join the opportunity under her. The nice thing here, from a business perspective, is that she is now in YOUR sales funnel.
Think about the potential branding for yourself here. You not only help your downline, but your upline as well! Have her write a testimonial about how she knew nothing and rose to success with your help. This to me is more of a win-win scenario, and you will be helping out someone in your personal community, which makes you more attractive to your warm market, and more of them will approach you (ironic, isn't it?).Of course, if Ms. Librarian chooses not to learn the principles and take the time to develop herself, then you have every right to go with Mr. Stud. You will also do so with a clear conscience.[Lane Reiss

The top income earner in one of my previous companies was introduced to a new company by a friend of mine... long story short, he ended up joining the new company but was so selfish and prideful that he joined direct to the company.
Are you going to run an ethical business or not? You have to lead by example... if it's okay for you to bypass the person who introduced you then you teach your team that it's acceptable to join direct to Mr. Stud also...[baldbrian


Thank-God for some ethical people out there. Paul Murphy, Lane Reiss and Bald Brian said it BEST and had EXCELLENT points and I would definitely join any of you in a business!!!!! Not sure about others that are willing to toss me aside to join under someone else they “felt” might get them farther ahead! There were some very good points made. It’s not all about who your upline is but how much effort YOU are willing to put into your business. If your company has the right tools and comp plan in place, Ms Librarian has just as much opportunity to succeed as Mr stud had. If Mr stud is already making his millions, is he really going to care about you joining his business or have time to invest in you personally? On the other hand, Ms librarian has incentive to work with you if she wants to be successful and you never know who she knows.

I know this is a “Business” but I also know there is more to life then “Money” so if I am a little less successful financially but can sleep well at night knowing I run my business in the most ethical way possible, then success will follow and I will be creating lasting and loyal relationships.

An old quote but one I try to live by is "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you"
We should all live by that and take the selfishness out of how we live (business or not). How much better would our world be?

Michael,

I think the key to success is not in never making a mistake, but in recognizing when you have made a mistake, owning up to it, and learning from it.

After seeing your earlier post, I was ready to write you off as just another spammer. The reality is, most of us have made similar mistakes starting out. Let he who is without sin, cast the first stone. Well, I have no right to be throwing stones at anyone.

I think your last post showed genuine humility and I for one would like to applaud you for your courage. That could not have been easy to write. Too often people are eager to chastise poor behavior, and too seldom do I see commendations for positive acts.

I'm not saying I would join the opportunity you posted, or would feel completely comfortable doing business with you, yet. That being said, I have seen that you are showing promise, and if you continue to particpate on this site, and learn from others, I think you can do very well for yourself. I have submitted a friend request to you, and I hope we can work together on becoming better networkers.

Lane Reiss
