In the old days we would play in the woods and be home for dinner by 5:30.
Kids can't do that today. Now, we have to keep them safe, so we car pool them between four to five activities per week.
In the old days, we had three TV channels.
Today, you can't let your kids watch TV without you being within ear shot, for fear that they will hop onto MTV.
Ever see what kind of filth is on TV Friday nights by 9 p.m.?
I am age 42 and used to watch the Brady Bunch and The Partridge Family between 8-9 PM. If I stayed glued to the TV Manix cam on at 9 PM.
Today, look at what comes on TV Fridays between 8-10PM.
In the old days, people actually spoke to each other and shared
an opportunity. Margaret would break out her recipe for blueberry muffins, the husband would lay out some products and by 8PM, you'd have a new enrollee.
It was fun. It was people sharing with each other. Granted, today we don't have the time like we used to. I know that.
Today, mention warm marketing and people flip the bird at you and jump over to some hot-new "3 by" matrix roll-up gizmo site.
And thank the Lord for such technology.
But at what expense have we paid for it?
On one hand it has made everything faster.
Plus, we no longer have to pile up post cards late into the night and lick-n-label because tomorrow we want to mail 500 out to
sponsor some more folks.
The internet saves us time and money. Plus it builds for us faster. Okay----but with that comes the fact that your new enrollee will
also be in 12 other deals, maybe by next week.
Thank you Internet. Thanks a lot.
In the old days, MLM was a personal development program with a compensation plan attached to it.
That was what glued people to us. Because we were in fact, sharing the good news about human potential and in fact, telling
people that whatever Caeser did, they could do better.
That greatness was an equal opportunity thing.
However, self help doesn't work. Simply because there is never any reinforcement and repetitive conditioning. Where MLM worked, was that it was CONSTANT support and constant attention to attitudes that turns flunkies into serious F/T entrepreneurs.
I am a living example. I was a ten time MLM loser who flipped into the chips.
But I earned my stripes.
But today? Try telling a new guy that he should buy Mr. Trainers tape set for $24.95.
And why not? Mr. Trainer makes $51,000 per month and he is a top earner in the program the guy just joined.
But the new guy won't buy the training. All he wants is his auto-responder loaded with content, pre-made ads to use and while your at it, you better feed him some enrollee's into that matrix you just junkied him into.
FORGET the training.
FORGET the education.
Gimme some leads.
Gimme some people.
Gimme a pile on.
FORGET the ABC's.
FORGET learning any skills.
MAKE IT FAST.
GIMME MY MONEY!!!
Retail? Wuts dat?
Expose, involve and upgrade? Wutz dat?
You know what? It's easy to enroll five to eight per month from a batch of 27 customers that already bought something
from you last month.
But who has the time for RETAIL?
GIMME MY MONEY.
Where is my F/T check?
Retail? Wuts dat?
It's a new day isn't it. It's a day where money is model, not people.
Today, it's about speed and greed.
Not about people or even the notion of learning the skill of MARKETING and learning HOW TO ENROLL 2-5 per month.
Heck today, your best enrolling technique is to JUMP INTO a HOT-NEW pre-launch.
That's how the little guy gets some fast meat. Some new enrollees.
Opps, but what skill was taught?
What will Johnny Tow-Truck do later on?
How will he build next month?
Years ago, we BOOED the heals (bad guys) in professional wrestling. You know, the conceited arrogant belt brats of wrestling.
Today, those ARE THE STARS that people beg to touch.
Times have changed.
Now we cheer for the bad guy.
Now we openly play money games.
How freakin sick is have we gotten?
Years ago, it was Frank Sinatra and Elvis.
Later it was the sheer beauty of Lennon and McCartney. Throw in some Stevie Nicks for extra measure and welcome to the 80's and 90's.
The good ole days.
Great. Now my kids listen to prostitutes with their bosoms hanging out and hear about PEOPLE BASHING from Emenem.
Ever watch Bitt Spears or Shakira today? Ever see what the magazines are telling our daughters to do and wear?
Psycho-snipers, the war on the horizon, the sex shows on MTV. Cheering for the BAD GUYS in wrestling. Fast money. Lottery MLM and sumtin for nuttin.
Me? I use the internet to express myself.
I use network marketing as a vessel for me to be a good news merchant and share the old days with folks.
I kept the people in this people business.
I advertise my cell phone. Always. I am approachable. But it's a choice.
I don't hide out on-line.
Most MLM'ers do.
But I am not an MLM'er.
I am a Networker.
I choose to make money slower because when it's made slower, it's made to last.
Skill lies within time.
Skill is the child of patience.
It takes a skill to Network like a Pro.
The devil is behind fast money. Try Xplaining this November 25 over the bird, what you actually do on-line.
As you pass the cranberry sauce and lick your chops between chomps on the stuffing, start a conversation about the internet and what you spend 3-5 hours per doing.
Try it. See if it passes the giggle test.
See if regular folks want to talk to you about MLM lottery on-line.
After all, all you have to do is join right?
Just buy the auto-ship ticket and you too can play MLM heavy-hitter---and FAST!
Better get in early!
Better lock-n-roll and fast!
I hear Guru # 34 built this site. WOWZEES!
THAT makes it all worth it.
GURU #34 created this site.
He's never really done MLM. Doesn't have anyone FRONT LINE he taught to make $5,000 to $10,000 per month.
ZERO LEADERSHIP documentation.
But his last Ebook was the bomb.
BETTER JOIN FAST!
(can you say blind compliance?)
Remember though. Everything duplicates after it's own kind.
What kind of scent are you putting out?
Does the last program you joined attract business people or the
bottom feeders who can't network?
If you think LONG TERM these
are good questions.
Everything duplicates after it's own kind.
Is the MLM you just hopped into, does it teach principles and networking ideals or is it FAST-GET IN EARLY based.
Hmm. Me thinks that's not a business but simply a ticket to a do-over.
== ONE Big Do-Over ===
A do over is when what you did last year was of little value to anyone, long term and then this year you have to oh-no, re-build all over again.
It's a do-over. No momentum.
No lasting residual money.
No lasting downline.
No true organizational pride.
Not really, anything of true value.
Opps, it's a do over. It's March 2003 and you have to work your list and show them yet, another hot JUST LAUNCHED!
Launches are good. It's what builds enterprise. But to jump on a new one every six weeks?
Just how easily do you hand over your credit card and name? Not to mention your list and your TIME?
In the old days, we built a downline to feed us for a life-time. We bought the ticket that allowed us to get paid in 1-2 years, for the work we do now.
The sad thing is, most people today are having to start over ever quarter.
What's sadder, is in 12 months they won't be paid on what they did last month.
Most likely. Because what they were selling was only attractive to the internet junkie. Not the Networker.
Networkers build your business.
Internet junkies are doing 12 deals and never have the stamina, the faith or even the business resolve to pick a few main programs and actually build a business under them.
For them, that's too slow.
At some point, you have to have a talk with yourself. And ask yourself this, am I being made the fool?
Is what I am doing a business or One big fat boys game? What kinds of people am I enrolling?
It's a shame to waste your best earning years. It's even nastier to waste your name.
Because then you lose your self-esteem and decide to the leave the industry you used to love, because in fact, the industry ate you for lunch. But think. Because you always have a choice.
Life teaches us how to think and thinking teaches us how to live.
What happened to us as an industry where you could give people 15% and 45% on there first two levels?
Heck, grow a little four wide with ten second level and you are making $600 per month.
What happened to us that people think THAT isn't enough? That
they could make money faster elsewhere with a faster recruiting system.
Years ago, we'd be lucky to have 10% available to us on the first two levels.
Today, give people 60% and they still won't be able to enroll and lead a team to 10-15 active.
THEY DON'T KNOW HOW.
The refuse to LEARN the skill of enrolling people.
The reason is because inside, they are ASHAMED of this industry
and they can't take "MLM" to people they know.
They hide behind an auto-responder and to-it-for-me-sites and actually think in 90 days that will make them $1,000 to $4,000 per month.
That's where a LOT of people are today.
That' why now is the time to pick what CAMP you will sell.
You need to choose wisely what MESSAGE you are going to promote.
Think about it hard. Are you and will you sell a lottery or will you promote a business?
Years ago we sold mini-franchises in MLM.
It was $1,000 to get started and you talked to everyone you knew.
Now, MLM has turned into something we secretly do on-line when no one is watching.
Me? I am on the streets. Doing presentations.
Getting mocked out by MLM bashers who think what I do is a pyramid. I mail post-cards---surprise!----I mail out tapes.
I actually have a business.
--- OLD IDEA ---
The NATURAL ECONOMY of nature is to reserve wealth for the few who PAY the price and resist wealth from the greedy.
That's natures natural scale of economy. It rewards those that will DO WHATEVER IT TAKES and keep money away from hucksters and wimps who actually steal people's self-esteem from them.
And their money.
And their resolve.
And steals your name and your time.
(Don't forget, they tramp through your list too!)
Nature is cool. It has everything worked out. Try to trick nature and try to make money EASILY and FAST and she is watching EVERY LAST MOVE you make.
She will make sure it crumbles.
She will make sure you lose your people.
Nature will make sure you lose.
And then satan whispers something in your ear and you start all over again.
And again. And again. And again.
It's one big do-over and nothing lasts.
Pick your moves carefully my friends.
There are no short-cuts. Nature wouldn't allow it.
In you is a GENIUS. In you is a collective consciousness that really does know it all.
YOU CAN HEAR the words of past GENIUSES.
They guide you. YOU know who is gonna call before they call in an hour or two.
YOU ARE A GENIUS that is untapped.
YOU are JUST AS MAGNIFICENT as all $100,000 per month earners.
If that is, you take the time to listen.
If you take the time to hear.
If you do what is right.
If you make it a white hot passion.
Excellence versus mediocrity.
U-pick. U're life.
