1) Telling people about your business opportunity
2) Show them your MLM presentation
3) Follow up
and I agreed to that UNTIL they said, "I respect my family and friends too much, to bug them and annoy them with my business opportunity, go online instead." My mouth dropped! Don't get me wrong I love using the internet to get leads but the part that got me was when they said they would never bug their friends and family with the opportunity. Why? Because if you have this great opportunity that can potentially change their financial situation and help them change their lives, wouldn't you want to show them your business opportunity! Why would you hide something so great from them! I wouldn't forgive myself if they saw me super successful, top recruiter of the company and come up to me saying, "Why didn't you tell me you were involved in this opportunity?" I would feel horrible and guilty because I basically took something away that could have changed their lives.
So my suggestion, if you really care about your family and friends, then go out there and show them your opportunity! Don't hide it from them! If they say no, who cares it is their loss and hopefully see it sooner or later.

Erica, you're so right on this one! If you have a truly great opportunity that you know has benefited you why wouldn't you tell your friends and family. The only reason is fear of rejection.
Here's a conclusion I recently came to about rejection. I hope this helps.
I realized that all the top network marketing leaders seemed to not fear rejection at all. Or more accurately said, that they are all desensitized
to rejection. Look around, have you ever seen a network marketing leader complain about rejection?
The concept of desensitizing is really easy to understand.
It's just like talking to a hot girl or guy (let's be politically correct haha).
Remember the first time you went to approach a hot girl or guy. You were probably nervous.
Heck you were probably nervous just looking at him or her.
But as you look at and talk to more and more hot girls and guys, you eventually become desensitized to their beauty.
After I realized this, I began welcoming rejection because I knew that every single rejection took me one step closer to being desensitized completely.
Each rejection is a GOOD thing! Each rejection is one more step towards becoming desensitized. Toward becoming YOU 2.0.
Becoming desensitized to rejection is just part of the process to becoming successful. There's no avoiding it.
This is simply the price we need to pay.
