I spoke to a major leads company owner today who attends many MLM conventions and meetings every year…We were discussing what’s hot and what’s not…then he said:
“You know Kim, so many of the speakers have come from where many in the audience are now: They were addicts, homeless or near homeless, broken people.
I didn’t need a twelve step program and I was never on welfare…That makes it harder to relate…But certain trainers and leads people who come from where that audience is, can totally relate and make major money from that audience.
The on-the-mend people in the audience spend thousands on training programs to bring them to the point where they even CAN do the business. No one in the room makes money except the trainers. Very different kinds of people in the audience now than even 10 years ago.”
Wow. Maybe I need to get out more.
Does this jive with what you are seeing out there? If so, do we need to think of ourselves more as “healers” first – for broken, attitudinally crippled people? And perhaps second, as a place for entrepreneurs who are ready for a business of their own?
