Why is it when you start a home based business your friends or the people you thought were your friends never want to join you in business? Well one of the answers is, they don’t see what you see or there is so much negativity about MLM. According to the Direct Selling Association, 15.1 million people in the U.S. are involved in direct selling. That’s a lot of people in this industry, and new people are joining party plan companies every day. More consultants means more competition for you. In fact, competitors are everywhere – on different teams, working with different companies or even on Your team.
Don’t sweat it though. Friendly competition can be healthy. Just accept that you can please some of the people some of the time: but you’ll never please all if the people all the time.The only people you really have to please are your customers. If you are running a business of integrity, you just keep doing what you’re doing. Don’t change who you are or what you are doing. Never spend time worrying about what others think or say about you – and never stoop to their level. Remember, those who talk badly about you only make themselves look ugly. By taking the high road, you can keep your integrity in tact.
You should be aware, though, that the more involved you are in your business, the bigger the target on your back. The best way to deal with competition and those who have made it clear they are not a fan, is to politely ignore them and focus your time and attention on growing your business and delivering exceptional customer service. Never quit on your dream of financial freedom, time freedom, and helping others do the same. When you help others get what they want, you get what you want.
