We Need to Have a Conversation...Let's Talk!
The great Zig Ziglar said:
"You can have anything you want in life, if you'll only help enough other people get what they want."
That was the reason I got into the home based business profession back in 1990, the idea that I could help others. Sadly, the reality has been far different.
No matter what company I joined, or people I met along the way, it seemed the message I heard was always the same:
"You can make a lot of money in this business..."
"It's all about the money..."
"It's fun makin' money!!"
"Do you keep your income options open?"
"Would you consider doing something different if the money was better?"
"Would you be willing to change your life if you could make more money?"
I even remember someone I knew personally joining a business opportunity only to quit a short time later, explaining their reason for backing out like this:
"I thought they said you just sign people up and get money."
I've run into more people than I can count who only jump at the chance to join a business opportunity for the so-called promise of "get quick riches."
They want to sign on the dotted line, manipulate a few people they know into jumping in with them (convinced that certain folks they know "would be good for this business," without ever taking the time to find out what their needs, wants, goals, or interests are).
Then they'd run under the spout where the money comes out, hoping to strike it rich like a few lucky players in Vegas or Atlantic City who crank the "one-armed bandit" (the slot machine) at just the right time.
I realize looking back that there were some people who enjoyed great success with the whole "you can make a lot of money in this business" mantra.
But to tell you the truth, I never felt good about saying or doing that. It felt awkward, I felt guilty, I was ashamed of talking to people like that.
I felt like taking a shower to wash away the sleazy feeling I had after talking to people that way. I felt like I had to be someone I was not and I didn't like it at all.
Point blank, it felt dishonest to me. I'm not saying that anyone who uses those tactics is dishonest (I imagine some may be, but that doesn't include everyone).
I just felt like it wasn't right for me. It didn't suit me. It's just like back in the day when I tried on my dad's suits. They didn't fit me because they were meant for him, not me.
You may wonder why I'm telling you all this. Here's why...
I got into the home business profession to help people, not to harm them.
I got into the profession because I want to have options in my life, personally, professionally, and financially too.
I got in because I want to do something important, significant, to do something that matters with my life, and feel good about it at the same time.
I don't want to hurt anyone. I don't know about you but I never liked anyone getting something for nothing, or worse, getting ahead at my expense.
I'd feel terrible personally if I had to hurt someone to put a few bucks in my pocket.
And I hate the idea that the only way to get ahead in life is to pull someone else down or to hold them back. To feel like I had no choice.
I want to feel good about what I do for a living.
I want to go to sleep at night knowing I did my best to help others, for a clear conscience is the softest pillow.
I want to wake up in the morning and like the man I see looking back at me in the mirror.
Most of all, I want to be able to look my kids in the eye and know they're not ashamed of me for what I do. I want my kids to be proud of me.
I am looking for people who feel the same, who want to help others as much as I do, without guilt, shame, or regret.
If you're the kind of person who feels it's more important to do something significant...to make a positive impact...
Who feels good about getting paid for what you do because you bring value to others...
You could be the person I'm looking for.
I want to meet you. I want to know you. Maybe we can work together to help others get what they want in life, as the great Zig Ziglar once said.
We need to have a conversation. Let's talk.
I am easy to find, easy to talk to, and would welcome the chance to see if we can work together to become a good fit.
If you made it this far, thanks for your attention. We might be the right fit for each other. Let's have a conversation and find out.
Take care, be blessed...and most of all stay safe!
