I’m Sorry..MLM is Just Not Meant For Me…

Published by szanuar under Don't Insult Me

I’ve got a call from a young man… I don’t really know him personally.  He is just one of the technician from the company that I enganged to install electronic equipment at my premise.  He called me for ONE PURPOSE… to persuade me to join HIS MLM, DIRECT SELLING kind of business.  But the way he delivered things to me…I wouldn’t even give a thought to TRY… He insulted me…Maybe unintentionally, BUT STILL it broke my heart…

A YOUNG PERSON, to enthusiastic to improve his financial situation..I GUESS…So, he had no choice but to look for as many downline as possible..But YOUNG MAN, I’m not the one you should look for.

YM : Sis, how about joining me for the talk tonight?

Me : I’m sorry.  I can’t make it..I’m just unable to arrange my time for that yet

YM : Every person has only 24 hours a day.  If you keep giving excuse, it wouldn’t change anything.  One of the member that I know has given the same excuse before but after he joined, he realised he made a mistake not to join earlier..Even those successful entrepreneur has also joined this program as well ..BLA..BLA..BLA…From what you’re involved now, I know it doesn’t generate much…BLA..BLA..BLA…

At this time, I felt like I want to spit on his face…(OF COURSE, we were just ON PHONE..)  Hei, who are you to judge my conditions?  Who ask you to direct me WHAT TO DO and WHAT NOT TO DO??  I bet with this kind of approach, he wouldn’t go anywhere…Not even a single person want to join him due to his arrogant approach..

My dear, I’ve been involved in MLM and Direct Selling world much, much earlier than you yourself understand this world.  15 years back, I was also like you..to eager to be RICH…Anybody can be rich by joining those companies, why can’t I?? That’s the mindset at that time…I’ve joined..not one but 5 MLM companies..I FAILED…Not that the companies were bad…But myself couldn’t adapt the culture and the effort needed to be successful…First and foremost, I don’t have the appealing power to persuade peoples to join…Secondly, I just couldn’t fell in love with the items that I sell…therefore, people that I approached just not convinced with the way I conveyed the message.  Thirdly,  I couldn’t stand the late night meetings, discussions, 24/7 commitments.  SORRY YOUNG MAN, YOU’VE DIALLED THE WRONG NUMBER!!! 

At this point of time in my life, money is not solely thing that I go-all-out-for.  Hei, I’ve experienced 9 to 5 working life before…FOR ALMOST 12 years before I decided to stay at home looking after the babies and some other life improvement stuff.  I was a first degree graduate and at the point when I resigned from my position, I’ve already earned 4 figures.  So, you see the point…even the office work is not for me, what else is the direct selling.  It is just doesn’t suit me due to commitment that required.  Money will only come to those who are full hearted, fulltime doing it….THAT’s NOT FOR ME…

I’m already old and full of motherhood commitment…If you think being a fulltime mother is not that hectic, you can try to be one.  I believe there are more ways to generate earning for the group of mothers rather than to focus your time day and night and leave your family aside for the sake of making money.  What’s the point of making money, if we couldn’t have a balance life??  With today’s technology, we can still find ways to make a living BUT at the same time witness the kids to grow up…
