I find an unexpected benefit from using the internet. Because I have that resource, I don’t feel like I need to sign up anyone.
I feel free to talk to people about what they were interested in. As I do that I can truly focus on what they need without being influenced by my need.
The fact is the bigger your list is, the more you are free to focus on the needs of the people you talk to. The more you focus on their needs, the more likely you are to find the people who need to join you.
