This was a lesson I learned early in my networking career. I was introduced to this industry in 2001. I was enamored. A man I met at a BNI meeting asked me if I was open to an additional stream of income or was I locked into what I was currently doing. He told me that he and a couple colleagues were putting together a team to work with for some projects on and off the internet. They were looking for some sharp people. He handed me a CD called “Hi Tech / High Touch”. He had me at hello. Well within 5 years I went to every meeting, every function, spent thousands of dollars on tapes and books, missed two of my best friends’ weddings, was excited and broke excited and broke excited and broke, spent more then I made, took the advice literally of finding 2 prospects a day and chased down a man in a snow blizzard asking him if he was open to an opportunity, my wife almost left 3 times, my best friend wanted to have an intervention and have had the police called on me when I showed up for a follow up. I’m no quitter but after 5 years of spending money and not making money I retired from network marketing, broke but not discouraged. I went back to business 101 for a year. And then I was reintroduced – this time by a cutting edge, future thinking, health and wellness company.
