  • Home Meetings Suck

    Posted on Timeless Kathy Sammons 3 comments

    To do a home meeting or to not have a home meeting, that is the question.

    Today I was on a training call with the leaders in my primary business.  The training that they provide is great.  Two of the trainers have been in the networking business for years and have been very successful.  So, when your leaders are successful you should do what your leaders are suggesting for you to do.  If you do what successful people do, you will eventually be successful too.

    So, some background of what sales training we have received. We have a specific sales method that has been taught to us by our National Sales Director Bill Rowland.  It is call the 7 up recipe.  It works very well and anyone can do it.  This is the kind of training that can help many people be successful. And again it is easy and anyone can do it.

    However, the last couple of sales calls they have been focusing on the home meetings, because this has been working for several people recently.  The problem is, not everyone likes or desires to do home meetings.

    That is the furthest thing from my mind when it comes to how I want to market my business.  It do now like home meetings, I don’t want to do home meetings, and because of that home meetings will not work for me.

    My business partner Dotti Berry and I were talking about what we liked about the call.  I said motivation and a clear picture of the infinite possibilities in mobile marketing with iZigg.  Then she ask me about having home meetings.  We both started laughing because there is nothing we are more committed to than not having home meetings!!

    So, the bottom line is, if you are in a business and your mentors or trainers are explaining a way to build your business and it does not resonate with you, don’t try to implement it.  This business is not hard unless you make it that way.

    Stay true to yourself stick to what resonates with you.  But, whatever it is do it with 100% of your effort.

    Don’t get me wrong home meetings are great for some people, but if it doesn’t work for you, don’t feel like you  are going to fail at your business if you do not do home meetings.

    Stay true to yourself and create massive action, then whatever you do you will be successful.

      Great post, Kathy! I’m not opposed to home meetings (this is where I got my first person who wanted a membership), but I think that the other problem is that people who talk about home meetings can set people up for failure. I know that at that meeting, we told our upline that we were going to show the video. Later, we said that people seemed to lose attention, and she told us we shouldn’t have shown the whole thing. I couldn’t help but think that it would’ve been nice to tell me that before the meeting rather than after the meeting.

      Still, you are so right about not doing something that just rings false. I won’t do the three-foot rule. Do this, and eventually, people will avoid you. Not only that, but why would literally every person within arm’s reach be a potential business partner? That, and this just isn’t my personality. Therefore, you are safe from me even if you are within a three-foot radius ;-)
