When your past and present collide

Be patient with people who aren’t used to seeing you as an entrepreneur, as a person who craves personal development, as a person who brings solutions.

Stick with your company, grow your network, and soon the majority of people who know you will describe you as a trustworthy business owner.

The rest may or may not adjust their thinking, and that’s not your responsibility.

The 95 percent loser

Ninety-five percent of your effort will be unproductive. Five percent can make you wealthy. –Jordan Adler, Board Member of Association for Network Marketing Professionals

This is exactly the reminder I needed to hear today.

I figure at least one of my blog readers needed it, too.

The positive type of negative feedback

There’s such freedom in creating when you aren’t concerned with critics or people trying to make your life miserable.
–Pat Benatar

Who is giving you advice? Are they qualified to give it?

Critics can tell us what we don’t want to hear. But sometimes all they want is for us to crumble.

There’s a world of difference between criticism and critique.  –Lynn Selwa

The first typically is meant to show you why it won’t work, why you should stop altogether.

The second is to show you what to improve, to strengthen your presentation and results. It usually comes from someone who has accomplished what you want to do, someone with many years of training and personal experience. In other words, it comes from a person who wants you to become their peer or to surpass what they have accomplished.

Choose your feedback sources carefully.

A better way to handle, “You should have been there!”

Have you ever said, “You should have been there!” to a distributor who didn’t attend the training seminar, convention, or workshop?

I have.

And it dents the self esteem of the receiver. It implies, You make bad decisions.

Here’s a more respectful way to express your excitement about attending that recent event… and increase the likelihood of them coming to the next one.

(This technique was taught by Sean G. Murphy, who spoke at the recent Association of Network Marketing Professionals conference.)

Newbie: So how was the conference?

You: “Words don’t express it. You know I was tasked to ask, what was that goal, that thing you were working on, that thing you wanted to learn at the seminar?” [then pause and wait for their answer.]

You: [say it lovingly and respectfully] “They talked about that. When can we sit down and review my notes about that?”


By NOT “rubbing it in” with claims of “you should have been there,” you surprise them, because they were expecting some sort of “you should have been there” statement.

By focusing on what they want to learn, you demonstrate your willingness to help them succeed.

By offering to sit down and share your knowledge, you elevate yourself as a resource in their eyes and as a person who will add value to their lives.

And… they are much more likely to attend the next event, because you treated them with respect.

I like it, and I’m going to use this technique.

P.S. I read recently that using Camelback Case (CapitalizingEachWordInAChain) helps assisted reading devices read the hashtags more accurately. It helps people who have limited sight or who have blindness to read and enjoy one’s posts. So I will be writing my hashtags like that starting now.
