Hey, the most sound words to hit the Network Marketing Industry in decades, "Snacks sound great - universal demand, no 'splainin ta do, quality, value." Thanks for the quote Steve, and no "pawmarks" required. :0)
Tools, and information are some of the best things to sell for sure, and I make thousands of extra dollars a year selling them too, e.g. imtoolsuite, sitesell, and infusionsoft software are excellent IMtools and some of the best on the market today for every range of business, big or small.
Plus tools are great for getting into the hands of your group to use and show them how to best utilize them for much more leverage, and marketing scope than they would have otherwise.
Of course I'm the type of person who feels very comfortable selling Internet Marketing tools, information, and total ecommerce solutions to businesses, to marketing something as simple as healthy snacks.
Because I'm not an either or personality type or have a fixed "skill set" that doesn't allow me to move in whatever direction I need to go when I need to "on the fly" and when marketing trends (which I watch very closely) dictate to stay ahead of the curve and ahead of most of the competition in whatever industry I'm marketing my products and services too.
Anyway, again Steve, you make a lot of good points and many distributors think (chasing fantasies) that thinking positive, and knowing a bunch of rose colored sayings, quotes, and even platitudes are going to make them rich, when nothing could be further than the truth.
It's hard work, dedication, getting scraps and bruises (maybe physically and physiologically), and even feeling highly uncomfortable in this "PC" age in order to get the concrete results one is after, and making things happen for the good of all involved. Not just talking a good game and getting little or no results for months or even years like many even here at BN.
Well with all that being said. I think you should read my blog post here at BN on "You Can't Build a Large Sustainable Business in your Robe and Bunny Slippers" here http://ow.ly/99vl2
and let me know what you think and like about it Steven?
Because after all, sharing is caring and votes, tweets, and other mentions do help all involved here at BN. Thanks.
Make it a great weekend! HF P.S. It's like why listen to the 95% who are still trying to make it, when I can listen to and do what those who have already made it do. No offense, but I don't listen to most of the people even here at BN most of the time unless I think it's something they found out about online that can help my business more, because I've done and have built more business since 1995 than most will ever achieve even here, but that's not to impress you, but to impress upon you I guard my time, and who I listen to to a "T" as they say, i.e. too many cooks in the kitchen and Johnny come latelys nowadays. Good day!
