Here’s the reason: I can talk to you about the do’s and don’t’s till the cows come home, but if I don’t show you real life examples, some people still won’t get it. And honestly, it’s not just about 1 person doing something inappropriate. For every 1 post I flag, there are 1,000 or more that hit the general public daily. And all of these bad posts collectively make us as an industry look bad.
It’s one of the reasons I started this blog. There are PLENTY of people out there who run in the other direction when they see direct sellers coming. Why? Because we have lost all sense of appropriateness in our onslaught of “join my team” and “buy my stuff” posts.
I will NEVER identify an individual when I use a poor example as an object lesson. The point is not to embarrass anyone. But I WILL take teaching opportunities when they present themselves, because I love this industry too much to let this bad behavior slide. It’s not just about one person. It reflects on all of us as an industry. And I for one intend to help our industry get this right. So doors open for us. And you can ALL make more money with your businesses.
This blog is free advice for everyone in the industry. And I sincerely hope the words I write here make a difference. That’s what it’s all about.
