Do you like ice cream?
I sure do like ice cream - even though, now a'days, it's a pretty rare treat.
Point is, I like it. My favorite is orange sherbet with dark chocolate chips; yum!
I had lunch with a friend the other day and we spent some time catching up. Part of catching up is talking about the business we are both involved in.
We both shared our discouragement with trying to get our friends to take a look at what we are doing.
We are advocates for health and we are entrepreneurs. Nothing weird or scary, just advocates for health and entrepreneurs.
If I opened an ice cream shop, don't you think I would want to tell everyone I know that we were opening an ice cream shop?
Wouldn't it be reasonable for me to want everyone I know to come and try our ice cream, maybe enjoy some samples, and ultimately buy all of their ice cream from us?
I think these are reasonable expectations when starting a new business.
Before the entire world hears about you, your first goal is to share your new venture with your friends; partly because you know that your friends will be honest about the quality of your ice cream and help you make some adjustments before the masses start coming!
Now hold on. Don't get too excited...we are NOT opening an ice cream shop!
Like I said, we are advocates for health and we are entrepreneurs. We have been doing this for almost a year now and, to be honest, most of our friends - old and new - have pretty much ignored our requests to take a look at our business.
I have a few guesses about why this is so:
First of all, network marketing - at least for us - is not about the hunt or the pressure. For us, it's about caring and sharing.
We got involved with the company we did because we have a very strong passion for health and wellness. This care certainly extends to the people we know, care about, and trust.
Secondly, no one looks like a walking dollar sign to us. People look like friends to us. Some are fine in their life and health, but others are broken, sick and hurting, and we believe we have some solutions.
This is a pretty big topic of conversation for us because we are in the building phase of our business, but, believe me, we still have lots of other stuff going on!
Warren's ministry schedule is very full, and I still have a home to run and a family to care about. Our business was not even on the radar in Hawaii when our daughter got married.
Here are a few more reasons why I think you might be ignoring me:
Also, I really would like to know what your thoughts are about my endeavor.
I see some of the things you all are doing on Facebook and I research what I can to find out what's going on with you. I think if you asked me to look at something you were promoting, I would!
An honest, “I'm not interested,” or “I don't have time,” or “I don't wanna re-connect,” would be easier to deal with than no response.
If we didn't believe whole-heartedly in this company and this line of health products, we certainly wouldn't waste your time with it because we wouldn't waste our time with it.
The number one reason, beyond our own healing, that we are doing this is to share possible healing products, solutions, and ideas with people we know and care about.
So, I just wanted to clear the air and tell you that we care about you, your family, and your health.
We don't have yummy ice cream for you to come and try, but what we do have could be a lot more important and of much greater valuable.
If what I have shared here has made our motive a little more clear, please click on the links below and let me know what you think.
I really am interested in your thoughts. We live in a world where communicating digitally really is the easiest and most common way, so please don't think my effort is less heart-felt than in-person.
If you look at what we are doing and think there is absolutely nothing of value for you, let me know and I'll understand completely. However, if something resonates with you like it did with us, let me know that as well.
If you are new here, I look forward to getting to know you. If you are already a friend, I love you and look forward to connecting again soon!!!
Have a happy and health-filled day,
