I just ran across this thread and I liked what was being discussed here.
I've been at this place in my business for a LONG TIME and wrote on it on my blog (I'll give it, if asked); I actually think it's a very good post about my feelings about marketing MLM's online (I'm favorable).
I think the first question that ANY prospect should ask is, "what do I do after 6mos when I've run out of friends and family to contact?"
Folks, our industry hasn't changed their stance on how to build a business since 1955 or so when Amway started! We've sent folk to the moon and still no changes!
Our industry as a whole, no matter what company you are with must explore new ways for their Associates to market products and the opportunity without depending on friends, family and "trolling" the coffee houses looking for leads.
USANA is the greatest company to me out there, barr none but, it would be a lot easier for everyone if we were able to find or embrace a better way to attract business.
I'm going to stop there and if anyone would like to continue, please-I would love to continue this conversation.
