So Kayla asked a couple interesting questions you might find intriguing. Let’s start today with the first one:
“It has been my understanding that if someone was part of a network marketing company, it was poor etiquette to recruit them. I have personally had times where I told someone I was with a company and they actively tried to recruit me to their company. In those cases, I felt it was rude and disrespectful, not to mention pushy and annoying.
“That stated, in the past few weeks, I have learned that two of my friends, both involved in companies, have left those companies and joined others. I would have loved to talk to them about my company and see if it would have been a good fit for them. So, what is the proper way to handle people already involved in a company?”
If someone is your real friend, they know about you and what you do. And you know about them and what they do. It’s bad form to pitch someone in another company. We all need to afford each other that professional respect.
Now if I found out that one of my friends left their company, went to another, and never gave me a chance, I would be disappointed as you are. And this certainly has happened to me. Many times.
I could assume that they determined that they weren’t interested in my product line, have misgivings about my compensation plan, or don’t think I’m a good sponsor. Since obviously any of these three possibilities are the ravings of a crazy, demented schizophrenic – I assume they are a crazy, demented schizophrenic, or something else came into play.
They may have been in deal A and someone with no professionalism pitched them into deal B and they just jumped ship. They may have left their company and were immediately prospected by another close friend or relative they always wanted to work with. Or any one of a thousand other possibilities..
So I can’t worry about this. We’re now up to seven billion people in the world. Personally, I only need two million on my own team. So there’s plenty for everyone!
