A New Perspective on “No”


Joining your direct sales company may feel like your destiny.
What if saying no to it was theirs?

“All my friends say it’s a scam.”

Folks, you really shouldn’t argue with a person who says that.

That’s a person who doesn’t think for themselves. And is likely taking advice from broke people.

But you can have a little fun, and perhaps shock them out of their complacency.

Say it calmly and non-judgmentally:

“I’m curious, do those people live a lifestyle you want?”

Wait for their reply… it might take a few seconds.

If silence or yes: “If so, then follow their advice!”

If ‘no’: “Then on a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being you’re ready to start now, how do you see yourself?”

And proceed from there.
