When you hear, “I don’t have the money to join”, here’s a True Story you can share:
“We lived in a small town in Northern Arizona, population of 3000 and had just lost our life’s savings to a franchise restaurant business. We were destitute. We were unemployed, no jobs around, had no credit, mortgage was 4 months behind, snow was on the ground and we didn’t even have money for firewood.
Because of lousy credit, we acquired a car that had a GPS tracker on it and when we fell behind on payments, it beeped. If we didn’t pay, it would shut itself off and the repo-guy would be in our driveway the next day. We were extorted twice already and the car was beeping again…
Nobody knew the fetal-financial position we were in! Nobody knew we were on our knees praying for a solution to our problems. We just kept a fake smile on our face and prayed for anything to pay our bills.
And then we got a call saved our life, exactly like you did. We watched the video clip borrowed my Mom’s social security check (my father’s death benefits had just come in) and sold our only source of income, my pickup truck, to give us the seed capital to sustain us for 2 weeks. We bought a position in an MLM and did what we were coached to do: pack the house. 6 people signed up at our first meeting. Life changing decision in a company of servant leaders.” ~ True Story contributed by David Dosch about people in his company. Thank you, David.
