Hi Friend,

It is not your job to help everyone. It is my strong belief that you should only help those who want to be helped. I've learned over the years that trying to help someone who doesn't want to be helped is a difficult task. He or she isn't going to be cooperative, and you may even be hit hard with a lot of negativity.

Help those who want to be helped. Keep pressing forward, passing those that don't want it.

.

the expression that comes to mind is... "Its a free country"

The one thing I know for certain in life is that everyone has their own opinions, principles and ideas of how and why things are done and they have a certain way to do them.

Some people approach network marketing as a meat market...
I'm gettin paid and I frankly dont care what you do.

Others approach it or find themselves in the situation rather, of being adult baby sitters.

And there are 100 other versions I could list.
The point is its a different experience for everyone.

For me personally, my goal is to bring something new to the industry...
A hybrid model that incorporates "old school" AND "new school" marketing & networking, steeped in a foundation of traditional business education with a system that gets people trained properly, is easy to use and empowers them to get started quickly - the right way, from day one. All in a process that can actually be duplicated by Jack the plumber to Jane the stay at home mom.

I haven't seen it done yet... at least not the way I envision it.
Well, that is until now ;)

Help everyone (for free)?
That doesn't work.

Empower people with ambition, a clear mind, are coachable, that want more out of life, that aren't looking for a lottery win, want to create generational wealth and prosperity not just a quick buck and have respect for and are ready to embrace the entrepreneurial journey?... That's who I'm helping.

I will sponsor anyone, but I will only "match" people's effort. They do something to grow their business, and then I help them a bit.


Don't you make them your friends first??

Hi Willie. Dale Calvert ripped up contracts too if people weren't willing to do what it took to succeed.

Mike Dillard wrote in Magnetic Sponsoring: Unfortunately this is an industry of business ownership pursued by people who have never been business owners.

That's where the education needs to start and mentors need to be saught who know how to do that - not the ones who never been a business owner offering to help others never learn how to own a business.

Helping someone is an overused, over abused term.

The common philosophy is "give and you will get", help everyone and all that goodness will be returned to you when they like you enough to sign up in your business.

How's that working for you? It's not is it? You feel good each night when you shut your computer down but your bank account doesn't reflect the hours you've worked over the last year or years.

Entrepreneurs will understand this, your primary has to come first then if it's not the right time for them yet, introduce them to your affiliate programs and make money off them anyways.

Entrepreneurs don't seek out friendships, they seek out those who want the same things they do and create professional relationships. Ones who understand the concept that making money is or should be the ultimate goal of every business.

If you want friends, go find them. If you want to attain your goals: become a business owner and learn those skills. Helping everyone you meet, becoming friends with them, is not the philosophy of a business owner.

If you understand that, you are an entrepreneur. If you don't, don't worry, you can learn how.
One man who doesn't require any introduction: Dan Kennedy, writes: " Many moons ago, in my earliest business life, in the Amway business, a fellow swore on his Bible he desperately wantedto be a success, a leader, and get rich - as long as he didn't have to give up his Tuesday night bowling league. At which point I packed up my little briefcase, tore his distributor application into little pieces and hurried out of his house."

So tell me again, is your focus on "helping" everyone or would you sooner be in the same league as Dan Kennedy?

Hi Joyce,

That is why i so much appreciate my first ever mentor, Dale Calvert.

As Dale has been known for saying, most people PEAK after they sign the application.

As for the guy and his bowling night, most people's problem is the Tell-A-Vision or as Dale say's, the idiot box or the income reducer.

In my opinion, you can really only help those who are ready to be helped. People who are at the right time in their life, to make a change for the better. Loss of job, career frustration, lack of money/time, etc...

Well said Joyce,

Many years ago my upline told me only put energy into somebody that is giving it back to you.

I always give out small tasks to people to see if they can complete those before moving forward. I continue with these tasks until I know someone is serious about their success.

It is not your job to do any thing to or for anyone. It would help to do something for someone. Especially if they confided in you on a personal level. From your own experience you can help them or know someone who could advise them in the right direction. Before long, people may just come to you because you know the right people to connect others in the right direction.
A lady was telling me about her personal life. I listened. I recommended someone to help her. She got the help she needed. Building a relationship with people will last a long time. And that is whether they buy from you or not.
