Business is great! My business is working for me and my family. I am a better person! Things have never been better!
I hear these kinds of statements from IBOs all the time. If their business is working out, more power to them. However, when I was in the business, my upline always taught us to be positive all the time. That meant "our business was booming" all the time because you did not want to "bring someone down" by sounding negative. Saying your business is actually struggling could be a negative which affects someone else's business, is what we were told.
Looking back, in reality, this appears to be just a ploy to prevent people from facing reality and taking a close look at their business expenses and determining if they are running a business or participating in a social club?
The bottom line is if the average active IBO eanrs $115 a month (before expenses) and most IBOs earn less than $10 a month, and only 1 in 5 IBOs manage to sponsor another IBO, the only conclusion I can make is that many IBOs are eebeliishing their stories of success and/or they are outright lying about the state of their business. Factor in the system expenses for those on standing order and attending seminars and you have IBOs losing money, possibly losing their shirts, all the while smiling, recruiting others into the business, and portraying a happy and prosperous IBO.
IBOs, is this what you are doing? Are you pretending to be positive while losing each month? If so, I urge you to stop, and at least think about your situation for a minute. If your business is not actually "booming", then what are you doing? Really - give it a thought. Please.
