If you knew…would you start?
A friend of mine, Nina, recently started a café.
It’s no ordinary café.
Vegan food oozing creativity and nutritious goodness but also beautiful in its earthy simplicity.
Just three months into her endeavour the café is in big demand.
Yet she said to me recently if she’d known how hard it was going to be, she never would have started.
The 14 hour days 6 to 7 days a week are exhausting.
The staffing ups and downs are not what she’d expected.
She’s had cutting, unkind feedback from customers… but also from staff.
And at this very early stage, there’s always a new facet of the business to soak up any profit.
If she quit because of the tough stuff it would be such a waste….
…because what she’s creating is magnificent.
But it’s extremely unlikely she will quit because she’s made such a big commitment.
That’s the thing with traditional business:
It has all the same obstacles, headaches and heartbreaks any of us face as we build our network marketing business.
But it’s much harder for people like Nina to just give up when it’s difficult.
It’s much harder for Nina to quit on a bad day.
She has a lot more financial skin on the table.
She’s a lot more visible.
Which means she has meaty reasons to keep finding solutions. Even when it really sucks and she wishes she never started.
That kind of commitment massively increases your chances of success.
Staying at the table (even if only because you have to) and rising to meet challenges is fertile soil for breakthroughs.
Because when you’re committed, instead of all those normal problems of business growth stopping you, they make you grow!
See you on the road,
