Spare the Rod... Part 1

Back in the 1980’s there was a very popular rap song with the lyrics; ‘Friends, how many of us have them’? I want to share a story about enrolling a ‘Friend’ in a company I was a distributor in, I had the great fortune of enrolling a very close friend of mine.  Many of us in this industry never have the chance to say that.  As a matter of fact, many of us in this industry of freedom never get a chance to experience any of the ‘Perks’ with the people we desire to be free with.  I remember telling an audience at a national convention once that being home at 11:00 am on a Tuesday morning or at 2:00 pm on a Thursday afternoon means nothing unless we can be home with the people we love, and enjoy being with.  I meant every word of that speech.  Here’s an interesting situation that happened to me when I enrolled my friend into a company I was in.  

The very first day he enrolled, the reasons for not fully committing began (let the games begin)!  First, he said he couldn’t make the game plan interview, because he had something else ‘Important’ to do.  Now you all know what we say when a new distributor makes a statement like that.  We say; ________, so being able to (the goal they shared with you when they enrolled) help your Mom leave that Senior Center where they aren’t taking care of her anymore isn’t as important as what you have planned on (the day you had the game plan scheduled) Saturday afternoon at 4 o'clock?  And you look them in the eye when you say it.  Back to the story, I want you to know I put this time aside, to speak with you about achieving that goal.  And you give them that look (you know that look) again.
