If You Don’t Have Something Nice to Say on Facebook

It never ceases to amaze me. Direct sales companies share ideas, tips, etc. on their Facebook Pages, and certain consultants bad-mouth it. I’ve seen consultants complain about the incentive trip destination, recipes, fabric colors, and more.

Didn’t your mother ever teach you that if you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say anything?

When a company shares excitement about its upcoming incentive trip (which they don’t have to offer, by the way) do you HAVE to jump in because you’d rather go somewhere else?

When a company shares a recipe that may not particularly appeal to you, do you have to tell the world that it doesn’t match your palate?

When a company offers a new fabric pattern, do you HAVE to tell people that it’s not your taste?

Or could you, perhaps, keep your negative thoughts to yourself?

Stop spreading negativity around, people. What would your mom think of that negative post?

You know better.

Remember what your momma said…if you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say anything.

It goes for Facebook, too.

Your thoughts?

    There should be an applause button because I’d press it. I find that people who constantly complain are also the one’s who aren’t working their business, who don’t produce and don’t increase their income’s.

    Funny thing is, when I was in direct sales I could NEVER predict what people would buy or what would turn into my BEST seller! I learned early on that I was not a good judge of what the masses will buy (hence why I would be HORRID as a buyer). Something I thought was HIDEOUS or tacky or just plain WEIRD would fly out of there like no one’s business.

    You never know what kind of sales you might be LOSING by dissing a product or parties you aren’t booking because you come across as negative and no fun or worse yet, ungrateful!

    Great post Jennifer!
