If you remember this when showing your ‘thing’ to others, you might not
take it as personally when they suggest it’s stupid or “too expensive!” or
“a scam” or whatever bad thing they say about it.
If you remember this when someone offers YOU an opp that you – for any
reason – think is “stupid” or “too expensive!” or “a scam” or whatever,
well, perhaps it’s a reflection on you, where you are, rather than “the thing”
being presented to you.
After all, there are business ideas that have been called ridiculous, overpriced,
and nobody will buy that – that have become world-wide hits. Think iPhone.
On the other hand, there are business ideas that people crowed would be “amazing”
or “once in a lifetime opportunity” and “the next big thing” – and they crashed and
burned. Like Trump Network.
We do not know the future. We do not know what is a scam in advance. We just have an
opinion, like everyone else.
So my suggestion: when you see or hear about something you have an averse reaction to,
suggest the person test it and let you know how it goes.
Why make the big loud and negative prejudgement? You might be wrong, you
know. And if you’re right OR wrong, you can smile and say, “Ahh Kim, I’m so glad I
suggested you test it!” 🙂
PS I’ve been testing the evil empire of network marketing – after shunning it for months –
with financial results that are so crazy it seems unreal. After six weeks and with a
VERY small team (!) But. It could easily have gone the other way.
with me, you can. However, you MUST BE ready to learn to market.
You MUST LOVE learning. NO whining about having to learn to do
things that can earn you big commissions.
