I was recently contacted by a business associate the other day, and he wanted to catch up with me to see how I was doing. What I didn’t expect was for him to quiz me on the particulars of the business as if I didn’t know what I was doing. I’m thinking, “Dude, I’m 48 years old and have been making money in this company for several months now!” I shouldn’t have to recite the compensation plan for you.
It felt like I was being bullied for a few moments. First, I didn’t need to be on this phone call. Second, I thought the call was for another reason, but of course it wasn’t. Lastly, I really don’t like being verbally quizzed by anyone unless I’m playing a game with family and friends. I like to do business without a micro-manager. Especially, if it doesn’t require a manager at all.
I want that person to know that I know that people have to sign up, try it, and tell someone. It’s the simplest customer/business model ever. It may seem like I complaining right now, but for the sake of honesty, I have experience in the same things. He just found this one venture a few months before I did. And, his success is based solely on timing and his ability to do the business.
So, what I am ultimately getting at is if you have been working hard at something that you have been doing for awhile; unless the method is clearly a better way, continue to do what is best for you and continue to look for better ways. Realize that you don’t have all the answers, but you don’t have to endure someone else’s rhetoric.
The goal is to be your own boss. Unless you ask for the help or you agree to be helped, don’t put up with pushy people. You don’t work for them. I wish for you to be successful in whatever you do.
