Coming February 1st! Daily Quote – Food for Brains

Please remember an important strategic fact:

A person who does not read has absolutely no advantage over a person who can’t.

Beginning February 1st, I’ll provide you with a strategic advantage of priceless value. I’ll continue to cull through the most interesting books of our time and provide you with a provocative concept unknown to the masses.

Each daily quote will serve as “brain food” which is literally mental stimulation.

Over 90% of all people lack the time and initiative to read one book a year. By reading about five books a week, I occupy a unique position in the civilized world…a place where less than one hundredth of one percent of all people reside.

I hope some of you will purchase a few of the books from which I quote, but let’s be honest … most won’t. That’s why I’ll provide as much important strategic information in each quote as possible.

I’ll do so in an economy of words so as not to cause you any significant time drain.

I’ll offer little, if any, commentary of my own. I’ll simply provide a quote, book title, author and author’s credentials.

Because in each case I’ll have read the book in its entirety, I’ll base the quote on some thesis concept of strategic advantage to you…a microcosm of the entire book.

I don’t read books because they support my opinions, nor should you expect to always agree with the concept presented. You won’t.

I’m not sharing the quotes to advance any agenda, nor confirm your biases about any subject. I’m offering you an online strategic advantage that will challenge you to think.

I assure you that this compilation of quotes will be found nowhere else on planet earth, either in virtual or actual reality.

Read my quote each day for one month and see if your life is enriched. Enough said.

Quote one will appear on this site on February 1st. Check it out.

None will be archived beyond 24 hours so I suggest that you habituate yourself to a daily visit.

It takes me many hours to devour each book, so five minutes of your time is a small sacrifice.

And by the way…if a million people read these quotes every day and you’re one of them, you have a strategic advantage of over 99.999% of all human beings alive in 2009 who will never read one book or one of my quotes.

As my uncle Jimmy used to say, “How do you like them apples?”

HOW TO ENROLL NEW BUSINESS ASSOCIATES (STEP 4) AND SUPPORT THEM (STEP FIVE)

To conclude the blogs on our Five-Step System (Step 1: Expose   Step 2: Present   Step 3: Validate   Step 4: Enroll  Step 5: Support), I’m going to address both final steps: enroll and support.

Obviously, when a prospect is ready to enroll, there’s nothing complicated about the sign-up.

However, my system differs 360 degrees from many other leaders.

I always suggest that the prospect sign up on his or her own. I never three-way them into the company because I want them to take the initiative to do so. It’s a commitment test.

This worries some leaders who believe that new prospects should be slammed in before they change their minds. However, I’d rather them change their minds before enrolling than waste my valuable time after they have already joined and been processed. Those who quit before signing up do us a great service.

With respect to the last step – support, I have a simple rule. I spend a minimum of one hour with all new business associates making certain that they learn these five fundamental steps.

Then I make myself available 24/7 to answer all questions for the first 30 days. After the first-month honeymoon, I gradually back off from those who’re producing nothing.

Those who’re recruiting and retailing can always count on my support.

Remember, new distributors will never be as excited as they are in their first month. If they can’t sell a few products and recruit a few people in their first month, they probably lack either the skills or motivation to succeed.

Sorry, but that’s just the way it is.

I support those who’re working.

So that’s it – the whole Five-Step System: Expose, Present, Validate, Enroll and Support.

See ya’ around campus.
