What a catchup we had!
I don’t know about you but generally at the end of a year we tend to spend a fair bit of time with gatherings of people. It is a favourite time of year for me as it’s such a good catchup time with friends and family that I do not necessarily see on a daily basis. This time it was with an Aunt and cousin and family who I haven’t seen for so long. What a catchup we had!
Anyway during all the catching up did you casually brush off some friend or family member as being daft because they were setting up a new business or starting a network marketing venture or hoping to earn a living off the Internet?
You see if you are like most of us when someone starts talking about something
- They are passionate about and
- Or we have little knowledge about,
we tend to brush them off.
Why do we do this?
Right at this moment, It’s a time when there are way too many people out of work or earning too little for their family needs or starting a retirement with insufficient funds.
Surely we should be encouraging any form of initiative with interest and constructive criticism if any at all!
Surely we should be asking questions to understand whether or not this business idea could possibly be beneficial to us or someone else who could do with a helping hand to getting some income.
I remember the first time I saw a business idea in network marketing…The friend had already decided that it wasn’t for me but what she didn’t know about me was that I actually had a huge interest in the product and a great need for an income as my husband had just been made redundant! I was quizzing her avidly and to this day am very pleased I did as not only did I get to work with an incredible product but it left me with a knowledge of how a good network marketing business works which meant that I was receptive to other business opportunities. Some I only join to use the products like Prime 1 which was recommended to us by the Cancer Association to help my family through my son’s cancer – we all still take it to this day!
Others I join to actually do the business as well as to using product like with Flipping 4 Profit
I have read a ton of stuff on network marketing bad but mainly good and it remains my preferred way to buy goods if I like the product. Robert Laura wrote a brilliant article
Would You Join A Multi-Level Marketing Company For Retirement Income? in which he says:
“.. there is a seemingly endless debate over whether these companies and programs are legitimate business opportunities or not, so I dug in and got the real scoop. As a result, I believe that the entire industry is poised for explosive growth and can be one of the most significant solutions to America’s current retirement savings crisis.”
There are so many things we can do to help ourselves independent of any corporate.
Lets all be a little more receptive to new ideas, who knows how profitable they could be for us!
Go well till the next time
