It’s 5:30 p.m. on Monday.
I feel a delicious sort of weariness that comes from a productive day.
As I started the day, I thought of how Monday morning is not a dreaded item in my schedule. No morning is.
I have practiced not allowing Monday to spoil my day for years. But these days I find myself waking up looking forward to what my day may hold. It is a little like Christmas or a birthday.
I check the internet to see what messages are waiting for me.
I may have a potential business partner who has sent an inquiry about what I do. That means I get to meet with a new friend on zoom.
Or I may have new leads that I will send a personal email to in response to their request.
Or maybe I have an email that is telling me that I have earned a commission.
In my early days of network marketing it wasn’t like that; I had to psych myself up to take on the day.
I would often wake up with a dread of the day because I had made a commitment to make a dauntingly large number of phone calls.
Now my life is fulfilling. I still make phone calls but they are shaped by Attraction Marketing. I am focused on the needs of the person I am calling. My job is not to convince them to watch a video or attend a home meeting. I don’t have to make a case for a product and business model that I am sold on but some in my world aren’t.
My job is to listen. What a gift that is for people. Most of us have a yearning to be heard. I strive to listen without an agenda. I don’t want my awkward segue into “sharing” my product or opportunity to take that gift away from my friends.
So, sometimes, I just listen. Often I assure them I will be praying. Sometimes I remind them that I have either a product or business that might help them. And one time I told someone I care about that it did seem that a direct sales company she was considering was a better choice for her.
The wonderful thing about where I am at today is that those calls are relaxed and I am able to enjoy building relationships. Before Attraction Marketing some of those relationships felt strained.
Before, I felt a pressure because my list was shrinking.
If Great Aunt Ethel said no, I was one call closer to having no one to call!
Today, the internet provides a virtually unlimited supply of names.
Today, if an internet contact says that she wants to wait to make a decision, I remember that there are 299,999 (give or take) others who haven’t heard yet.
So, okay Monday, let’s do this!
Attraction Marketing has made me a more effective active and passive marketer. It is the way network marketing, direct sales, MLM, internet marketing should be.
You offer value and provide choices for savvy consumers.
I’m glad I learned the “old school” network marketing first. I helps me appreciate the new skills I am learning; the wide scope they provide.
The “old school” active recruiting is a good foundation.
Ferny Ceballos, who has mastered both “old school” and “new skill” recruiting, says that if you have learned those old hard skills of active recruiting, you will have a better chance to successfully use the internet to build your business using passive recruiting. You can learn from Ferny with this link to a free 10 Day Recruiting Boot Camp.

First, message me. We’ll visit using zoom.
