“But I don’t have any time!”
A distributor asked, “I am so busy with my job and family now, how will I ever have time to learn the 25 basic skills of network marketing?”
My answer? “You will start when you are ready.”
Many distributors put off getting serious enough about their business to start reading books, listening to audios, attending Saturday events, etc. At this point in their lives, they just aren’t ready.
But when they are ready, it will be easy to find the time.
They will go to a Saturday event instead of golfing. They will read a book instead of watching Netflix. And they will listen to audios while commuting instead of memorizing lyrics to depressing Country Western songs.
The answer always is, “We will start when we are ready.”
“Ready” is when the pain of their current situation becomes bigger than their reluctance to change. It is easy for them to stay where they are, endure low levels of pain and dissatisfaction, and let life pass them by. To change, they need a wake-up call. That wake-up call for our prospects can come from us.
This is why we use “Ice Breakers” to help prospects evaluate their current situation. We say things such as, “Are you okay with not having time for yourself and your family?”
We want our prospects to stop and think hard about their current situation. And if the time is right for them to start, they will find the time to build their business.
