My Job sucks!

“It sounds like a pyramid Scheme,” has been a phrase I have heard untold numbers of times over my 30 year career. There are a number of ways to handle this “objection” and they all work to bring someone’s cognizance to a level of understanding that network marketing is not a pyramid scheme, but their job is!

HOWEVER, this little cartoon really hits it on the head!  I laughed so much tears were streaming down my cheeks.

It was amazing to me when I heard, “I have decided that my job sucks…….” because I could relate to that, even though I am a Pharmacist and was working for a nationally known chain, actually managing two of their stores. I had two small children and was working 72 hours a week being paid for 44 hours!

Thankfully I did not listen to any of those around me when they said to me, “It sounds like a pyramid scheme.”  Instead I simply asked each and every one of them
“Tell me what a pyramid scheme is” and NONE of them had the slightest idea what that phrase meant!
Invariably they told me “a friend, a brother, a sister, etc. yada yada yada” had warned them away from “pyramid schemes” so they just took up the mantra!
Man! Was I skeptical of their powers of deduction, reasoning, discernment (whispering in an aside..should I say Intelligence!) when they told me they had just blindly followed those suggestions and not gotten involved in a “pyramid scheme” not realizing they were involved in one or more all the time!
TIP: When someone says to you, “It sounds like a pyramid scheme to me” do one of the following or several, if you are so inclined.
Reply to them, “Oh, seriously? Tell me, What is a pyramid scheme”  and let them tell you.
or, “Really, …..well, is that a bad thing?” You will certainly gain insight into how they look at networking from their answer.
or, “Oh, ….well….if it was would that be a good thing or a bad thing?”  Again you will gain insight and be able to move to the next level of enlightment.
Now if their answer is, “No, not a bad thing” (meaning they like network marketing but just do not have the vocabulary to accurately describe it) then you reply with
“Great! you’re gonna love this”  and STOP explaining anything right then, just go on with your demonstration, delivery of a DVD or website or whatever tool you want.
If their answer is, “Yes, it is a bad thing!”  then you reply with,
“Great, you’re gonna love this!” and STOP explaining anything right then, just go on with your demonstration, delivery of a DVD or website or whatever tool you want.
This is my all time favorite though, whenever I am confronted with the question either implied or direct, “Is this a pyramid? Or It sounds like a pyramid scheme”  I simply say,
“Gosh NO!, Pyramids are illegal, you go to jail!” And then I keep going with my demonstration, delivery of a DVD or website or whatever tool I want!
This is so cool! and  literally  stops the objection immediately.
So there you have it,….show the movie above, or use my Tips.
