Recruiter money hype – you know I love to hate it.
However (gasp), there is a good side to it:
Hype gets people started.
It doesn’t sustain them judging by the 95% drop out rate, but it starts them.
It started me. I couldn’t get the business out of my mind after I saw that cute former waiter making close to $90k/mo. I mean, if he could do it, I could too, couldn’t I?
When I studied the business model and realized how it could in fact be done, I was hooked.
It took me five tries to make it big. (Read: Five times I bought the big initial order. Each time my then-sponsor made a fat bonus.)
And there’s the rub.
Many start. Few finish. That’s why they call sales a numbers game,
If many people don’t start, how will even a few finish?
It isn’t the recruiters’ fault that so many people flake after they buy into the dream, is it?
Interesting dilemma. What can we do to make it better?
