I just came back from a breakfast with some other women in my neighborhood, and it felt so good. I am in a great mood. 🙂 We had strawberry short cake as a little “birthday party” for all of us with birthdays early in the year. We just ate and chatted, and had no kids. It was held at the church across the street, so I walked. As I walked, the sun was shining, and the birds were singing.
Spring is in full force.
On the way home, I talked about business with a friend of mine. She is in a different network marketing company, and she was talking about how much she loves the products, but doing things online can be hard and confusing. I was really excited to be able to tell her about our Facebook group. Before I came across this drastically different approach to network marketing, I felt the pressure that she is under. She was brave, and offered the products, and asked if I wanted to host a party.
I have felt the stress of feeling like you have to make every conversation into a business opportunity. I have separated my social life with my business life, and it is so freeing. I can actually talk to people and not have to be concerned about talking about my opportunity all the time. The funny thing is, since I’ve taken the stress out of those kind of conversions, it’s actually easier to talk about.
In network marketing, they talk about being “free” all the time. “Quit your job so you can finally be free!” But that kind of stress of looking for an “in” for my business in every conversation feels like prison to me. I finally found a better way to do things, and I got to share it with a friend today. I wasn’t pressuring her to join my business, but I do get to show her a better way to do her business, and truly helping in that way feels fabulous. 🙂
