I’ve been interviewing person after person these past few weeks.

Yep I’m building again. So interviews are my process.

All peeps with experience in MLM.

Something I’ve observed for many:
They’re distracted by issues in their lives that are unpleasant.
Or happenings that cause sense of loss and missed opportunity.

For example, serious illness in the near family, painful marital and custody disputes, constantly looking at each new opportunity they are offered wondering which one to grab, worrying ‘what if it doesn’t work or last?’

Or they’re sure they have contacted every person they know, and they’re
all pukies. Or dirt poor. Or not willing to buy for one reason or another.

Others can’t let go of their FB or Twitter pings during the day, for fear of
missing one tidbit or other — which they forget as soon as they see it.

In these mental states, how can anyone hope to succeed in a business of their own?
Getting any business off the ground requires total structured focus for at least a couple
hours per day. And a sense of optimism. Not pessimism.

So now I have added another interview question: Yes, I know you want more income.
But. Are there situations in your life that constantly occupy your mind during
the day that will keep you from clear and optimistic focus?

Do you focus on what you cannot do versus what you can do?

Or, are you hooked on FB or web surfing, gossip sites or whatever, and you
cannot really focus on something for an hour or two per day, because you
either can’t let go of it or you just cannot put it out of your mind?

If so (to anything like this), this is not a good time to start your business,
especially not if you want to do it part time.

Because by the time you get to it and talk to someone, that dark or
distracted energy enveloping you will instantly be transmitted
to the other person.

How will you attract a really good person then?

So let me know when you CAN focus a few hours a day.
I’ll be here.

Moral. This business is hard enough without adding someone else’s burdens
to your own. If you take in someone in this state, because they are needy financially
and mentally, can you just imagine what your conversations will be about?

Is that any way to build a thriving MLM business?
