Here is one of my favorite mini-stories: Food for thought.
One married couple goes out to a restaurant twice a week for dinner. They spend $160 a month on eating out. They get fat.
Another married couple invests $160 a month in their own network marketing business. They stay slim and healthy. In a few years, they retire.
I like this. It opens up the prospects’ minds and lets them know that a small change of behavior can make them successful. Also, I don’t get the objection, “I can’t afford it.”
They are already spending the money they need to participate in their own network marketing business. Now it is a matter of choice. Do they want to continue to dine out or would they rather eventually own the restaurant?
