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.

Who would buy from YOU??

“What do YOU know about ____________? You’re a ________________.”

(Fill in the blanks with your product category and current profession.)

Likely that’s a comment you heard, at least during your first year with your current company.

Sometimes inexperience is not an issue: when there’s already trust in the relationship, such as approaching some friends and family when launching your business.

And sometimes it hurts: People looking for a way to “shut you down” because they can’t imagine you changing course to a different career. Business owners who want you to work with your company for months or years before they buy.

But a true professional has a different approach.

Check out Seth Godin’s angle and see if you agree.

I think he nailed it.

Two ways to handle anticipation

See, then do?


Do, then see?

When you know (or suspect) a change is coming in your business, how do you react?

Do wait to hear the announcement and then decide what to do?

Or do you take action and then see what happens?

Each method has its advantages.

If you wait to see the change (the announcement of a new product, a tweak of the compensation plan), you might save time and money. But ask yourself, are you simply trying to avoid looking foolish? I realized a lot of wait-and-see attitude in our profession is driven by fear: fear of looking foolish, fear of the unknown, fear that a company might be going downhill.

On the other hand… If you do an action (market your existing products, give a business presentation) and then see what happens, you will likely build a bigger business faster than someone who waits for the announcement. You take the risk that the product line or the requirements for rank advancement might change and your efforts may not create the effect you were hoping for. However, can you control that type of corporate-level announcement in the first place?

Trust is the foundation. People will market and coach their teams more confidently if they trust the leaders to look out for the entire distributor and customer base.

If distributors on your team are acting timid, do some deep thinking and see if there is a trust issue lurking in the background.

Great idea but no credibility?

This is a typical situation in network marketing. You found a groundbreaking idea to solve a problem or make life more enjoyable, and you want to share it with the world.

How do you get people to trust you enough, so they sit down and take an informed look at what you’re offering?

Thought leader Seth Godin summed up the answer brilliantly in his post today. Click and read… it’s worth the time.
