the messenger

I don’t care what type of car you drive, where you live, or how much money you have made with this company.

I’m intrigued by the short explanation you gave me, and I’m meeting with you to learn more.

Do *I* see huge potential here? That is the burning question.

No matter how much you have made, my friends and I will do better.

You are just the messenger.

That is the mindset of a confident businessperson.

So, present yourself the best you can within your means. Wear clean and neat clothes, get your hair cut regularly, wash the car when it needs it.

The “right” people will appreciate your pride in presenting your person the best you can and will be grateful that you approached them. And they will make their decision based on their own evaluation of your company presentation, not on the brand of shoes you wear.

This Is A Long Overdue ( ) For ( )

When you fall out of touch, neglect to send that promised email, or forget to post on your blog while traveling for your network marketing company’s convention <sheepish grin> …

How do you get back in touch?

When this happens to me, I  feel disappointed and embarrassed. There doesn’t seem to be a good time to get re-engaged, and the longer I wait the worse I feel.

Here is one solution.

The President of one of the largest Chambers of Commerce in the United States taught me this magic phrase:

“This is a long-overdue (       ) to (      ).”

As in, “This is a long-overdue phone call to see what questions you have regarding your account.”

Or, “This is a long-overdue email to share the details of the next networking meeting.”

And for me, “This is a long-overdue blog entry to apologize for my absence and to teach you a powerful technique.”

As I advised a friend on Facebook this week: “Everyone messes up. Your character is revealed by how you handle it.”
