Just Walk Across the Room

Just Walk Across the Room.

A lot of people have fears.
Fear of rejection.
Fear of success.
Fear of failure.
Fear of fear.

However the biggest issue here is that the fear is talking. And in any venture you just have to WALK ACROSS THE ROOM.
Start the dialogue and let the cards fall where they may. Let’s examine a few. examples shall we.

-Procuring funding is an arena where you can’t hide. To get an angel investment or even a Kickstarter one you have to be seen, be heard. People want to know what makes your idea better. I don’t even give to a charity I don’t believe in. I want to know how they spend, where they spend, and salary breakdowns. Its prudent to not waste your money so I don’t.

-Recruiting is a numbers game no doubt about it. It requires greater exposure, and more courage and cunning. However to gain the numbers you have to reach your desired pinnacle people have to know you.
WALK ACROSS THE ROOM. Meet them head on. To gain the value you seek you must lose the fear. Speak to strangers everyday. Speak to coworkers and classmates daily. There is a way to beat the game. Its called WORK. If you talk to ten people a day you will win. And even better the more you do this the easier it gets. And as my mentor says- who cares if they say no?

-Closing is key. And yet again it requires you get in front of the people. You can’t seal the deal on the net. Okay, maybe you can. Yet ever notice how much business is concluded on golf courses? Quite a bit. It is the sport of presidents, gentlemen and kings. And its also an equalizer. To close on a golf course brings a zen like atmosphere to many tense agreements. Now I’m not saying you should take up golf- but it wouldn’t hurt. People want to be closed, they need to be closed. And for that they need YOU. Give them what they want. Closing is a fine art and I won’t delve into it here. I will say that it requires a personal touch. Get involved, stay involved. And once they sign- give them more attention. Team building is an active sport not a passive one.

-Love requires a true touch. The lover must be known to the other. And this is a perfect example. To gain requited love you must be genuine. You must be real and authentic. The love of your life won’t be snowed. She or he won’t fall for a guise. You have to be just who you are. And this a perfect analogy for my network marketers.
People aren’t buying the product.
They aren’t buying the compensation plan.
They are buying you.
Sell them the dream that is you not the smoke cloud. Let them know you. Why? Easy. If you lie it will ruin you. A lot of Zeek people lost their down lines forever. Not purely their fault but they lost in any case. However the leader that builds for and with his team will have a team built for longevity. Show them you. Even the faults- not appearing weak per say- but the real you. They will follow. And you will lead.

Be your own ambassador.
