Are you a cosway member before?? Yes I am a very sociable person.
I really do believe that everyone should be at cause then at the "effect" side. In other word, we are deciding our faith, instead of the type of circle of friend around me...
Let say, if my circle of friends now is all negative thinking as you mention. I am sure eventually those who is negative will getting lesser and lesser, eventually I will attract those who are positive thinking in MLM. As I attract those in my life.
The more I focus in losing friends, the more it will turn out. So I rather give it a try 1st for at least 3 years before I say "No no" to these field.
No. I am not a cosway member before. But I am ex-MLM, Quest International..
The company is great, I learned a lot of things there. Although I had left MLM, I am grateful that I experienced a great MLM community before. It is all an experienced that I will never forget. Primary reason I joined them is to learn interpersonal skills, see how present effectively, talked until customers are convinced to the core, how to close a deal. And it is really not easy to sell a Rm2k products to a teenager..
Back to what you are saying. Well, I understand your point is to attract those who are positive, which means it will be meeting up a lot of new people, filtering them, and guide them and bring them up so that they can grow along with you. Well, it is never easy to find a positive MLM people nowadays because it is coming to a maturity stage for this industry. Furthermore, those parents who had bad experience in MLM will tell their children to shun away from MLM because it is a wasting money, wasting effort, scam or whatever you can name MLM.
To add salt into wounds, easy internet access also enabled people to search pros and cons about MLM, and while MLM continued to get tainted image in the market (I understand that it is because of some irresponsible agent that will promise sky high above to lure people in), it will be challenging.
I am not here to discourage you in MLM, but in fact, encouraging you. But just to give you some "injection", so that you can prepared yourself to face countless of hardship in front of you, countless of rejections, countless of critics, countless or all the bad things. Yes, it is very hard not to focus on the bad things.. But only those who are able to persevere to this hard stage (It could be 3 years, 5 years, 10 years), then they will really see result coming in.
There are no fairy tales in MLM. Those telling you.. "It is very easy, even my 65 years old aunt can do it, you cannot do it?" is totally bull crap in my opinion. Nothing is easy, and to succeed in MLM, you had to be so professional, especially in handling rejection.
Well for me.. I just think this bowl of rice is too tough for me.. For the rest of the people out there in MLM, don't give up.. But, don't be too stubborn if it does not work out for you. There are still a lot of things you can do to survive

Do they really? did they show you their bank accounts? do you know how much they earn (net profit?) don't mistake a sales figure for a profit
It depends.. In some groups, it is real figure, real success, no doubts about it. (Usually aunt uncle group)
But in some group, it is totally made up at all. (High percentage is young people group)
For my case and experience, I saw my friend in an exaggerating water blowing process, which I could not even believe. Hahaha..
Just my 2 cents and my experienced.This post has been edited by Bonescythe: Apr 9 2011, 08:14 PM
