In honour of Dave's deletion of 'Dealing with the naysayers' video, I thought I would briefly touch on another in the hope we can rid the internet of advice such as this:
First cab off the rank, Dave briefly mentions 'working for yourself', although I feel he may be a little confused here. What I believe Dave meant to say was "working for YOR". Because, as an Independent Representative of YOR Health, that is exactly what you are doing. You do not own your own business. YOR Health does not hide this from you; it's right here in the Terms and Conditions
"MLM is not true self-employment. 'Owning' an MLM distributorship is an illusion. Some MLM companies forbid distributors from carrying additional lines. Most MLM contracts make termination of the distributorship easy and immediate for the company. Short of termination, downlines can be taken away with a variety of means. Participation requires rigid adherence to the 'duplication' model, not independence and individuality. MLM distributors are not entrepreneurs but joiners in a complex hierarchical system over which they have little control."
Dave has some tips for us plebs, or 'band terminology' as he likes to call it:
Basically, we all have the same amount of hours in a day, so if you aren't devoting your hours to posting about YOR Health on Facebook, attending daily meetings/webinars/training sessions, preaching/recruiting etc etc, you've "just gotta get better". Dave suggests keeping a diary (to keep track of your downline/prospects I'll assume), squeezing hours out of the day (just take some Berry Blast and you'll be up all night, trust me), leveraging, and just general time management. Dave has never met anyone who has not had enough time in the day. I'm just theorising here but, perhaps Dave, that's because you haven't really spent a lot of time with people who are not only busy in their careers (aka the devil), but understand the importance of a balance and separation between relationships and money. Crazy huh. And my favourite quote here: "you're probably busy being broke". I don't even need to comment on this. You've done it again with your beautiful execution of language.
Once again, Dave has some seriously impressive statistics of the values of every person on this planet. Let's list these values in order of importance (as this is incredibly telling of Dave's intrinsic goals:
1. Freedom (I'm guessing he is referring to financial freedom)
5. Working for 'the self'
Silly Dave, believing that everyone has the same life principles. Guess what Dave, if I had to rearrange your list, it would certainly have Friendship as number 1. I guess that's probably because I actually have friends, and not mainly 'prospects'.
3. Being a salesman
Guess what? If you don't like selling, you're basically going to work in a dead-end job for a very long time, at the bottom of the food chain because those are the choices you have. Forget university, TAFE, private college, and other occupations, you can either sell, or be doomed to lowly employment working for the man. However, I found a list of 501 income and business opportunities, and the majority of them don't involve selling at all, let alone selling to your friends and family:
