So many are afraid to become a part of a network marketing business because they either don’t like the idea of acquiring others to work with them, or they have to come up with a lot of money to join that particular company. And, don’t get me started on the above picture, because that business model will make potential members run for the hills.

Remember your training. People are generally afraid of what they don’t know. Teach them in a way that relates to them. Adapting to your future partner’s or client’s needs is the best method in acquiring them.
