My brother and I know a lot of people who we consider a friend of mine as well as a friend of my brother. We discussed what we should do with those people when we should sign them. The first option is a competitive option. The one who contacts the person first and explains the business opportunity should get the customer. The second option is that we will sign people who we both consider as our friend in the downline of my brother. That way we would both earn money over that sing up. I thought the first option would motivate us but my brother thought of that as unfair so we went with the second option.
We’ve invited a friend who we thought, is interested in making money this way as well. He’s always in for a new opportunity and he likes to think outside of the box. Since I had more experience this far with telling about Global Domains International I started off with my little over ten minutes elevator pitch. This way my brother could learn for the next time he had to tell the story himself. It was a lot of information but he looked like he also understood he could make some money with it. The freedom of filling in your own time and being able to make as much money as you’d prefer seemed interesting to him.
I think this experience teached us a lot. If we would do this meeting again I would say, are you in or not? Sign with us, give it a try for at least six months and if it doesn’t work out you quit but at least give it try before quitting. Also I would tell him to keep it to himself until he signs and really knows what GDI is all about. The last thing I learned is that I have to keep in mind that if somebody wants to join my business opportunity he or she is more than welcome. If he or she doesn’t, no matter the reason, I have to let it go. I was a little bit irritated about the fact he didn’t understand the business opportunity and he didn’t give it a try but I should let that go, especially because it’s my friend.
