Network Marketing Training Tip-Tom's Buffet Lesson

I really like today's network marketing training tip. It comes from Tom, Big Al, Schreiter, and it's all about how to give business presentations. Tom shared an experience he recently had at a buffet he visited while traveling and some insights he gained related to our mlm business while there.

It's good stuff so I thought I'd share it with you!

Let me tell you about fat people. 

I just left the buffet line at Caesar's Casino in Atlantic City. What did I see? 

Fat people. 

People who shouldn't be there eating. 

Every time I went back to the buffet line, I saw more fat people. Every trip to the dessert buffet? Yes, I saw more fat people. 

Now, we all got the memo. We all know exactly how to lose weight. We have the information, the reports, the videos and we know all we have to do is to "eat less food and exercise more." 

We got the whole presentation. The facts. The data. 

But ... people don't make decisions on what to do based upon information. Information and presentations have little or nothing to do with what we choose to do. 

If information and presentations worked, you wouldn't see any fat people, right? 

And you are going to see a lot of fat people after you read this newsletter! 

So here is the lesson that we should never forget. Our presentation, our information, our videos and our brochures have little or nothing to do with our prospect's decision to join. 


All of this information is a waste of time. 

So if you are still giving lots of information to prospects with the hope of them making a decision to join ... stop! That is what amateurs do. And amateurs waste their lives with prospecting, getting appointments, presentations, etc. 

They have no idea how things really work and they refuse to learn how. Instead, amateurs insist on staying in their fantasy world, hoping prospects will make a decision and act on this kind of data. 

I wasted my first year and ten months in this fantasy world, talking to people without having a clue. It was ugly. Every night I would go home and pound my head on the wall in frustration because I knew what I wanted from this business, but I didn't have the skills to make it happen. Yes, I was a member of the "flat forehead society." Ouch. 

If you are brand-new to network marketing, stop this time-wasting and frustrating practice. It will save you time, and then you will have a chance to make more money in your business. 

And if you have trouble believing this, just watch for us fat people. We are living proof that you shouldn't be doing these things with the hope that we will make a decision to act.  

Let every fat person remind you to stop making this amateur mistake.
