I went to an opportunity meeting 45 years ago. Bought a starter kit, contacted all my relatives, neighbors, friends and anyone who came within 3 feet (as I was told to do).
I only needed to find TWO winners, only two people who would take the ball and run with it and I could cash in on easy street. We had a product that EVERYONE uses. Laundry soap. And we had supplements too, vitamins.
I worked the PLAN. I followed the directions. I did what Jody Victor, my mentor told me to do. I never made a dime.
As far as I know, I'm still on the books, somebody's dead downline. Others have gotten rich, and it wasn't because of lack of effort, it seems I alienated everyone I knew.
I could sell ice to North Alaskans, sand to those living in Palm Springs, but I couldn't sell soap or vitamins to the dirtiest and most malnourished people in the world. What was I doing wrong.
I was told, it wasn't about selling PRODUCTS, but it was all about selling the opportunity.
And I dragged dozens of people to meetings.
All this struggle and frustration reminds of me of those of you that bought into the easy INTERNET MARKETING, suitcase/briefcase, beach house lifestyle opportunity.
So, this is for all of you who are frustrated and looking for a real opportunity, something withj a 50+ year track of record of success. All you have to do is just tell others about the opportunity and let the magic happen.
I haven't given up, after all that is the mantra of many gurus in the Mind Warrior forum, NEVER QUIT, right?
So, if you've been at if 3,5, 7, eight, nine or ten years or more...do not despair, do not quit. Just meet me on Zoom or somewhere, and give me a few minutes, I'll draw some circles on my board, and you can get a starter's kit if you want. Fair enough?
Now truthfully, if you have even one year without making any money, QUIT saying you have a business.
QUIT saying you know how to do a capture page, or write a sales page because clearly YOU DO NOT.
You don't have a business. But don't give up, one of these days, me and my SA8 and Vits mins are a goin to strike it rich.
PS Best advice. Get free business plan software and fill in the blanks, start with a clear idea of what you want and what you will do to get there, and quit fooling yourself thinking you have a business when all you do is spend money...that only worked for Bezos. AH, but there it is, your hope.
