MLM Frustration Again

Humiliation Kills the Dream and Billy Dings a Caribou

MLM FrustrationHowdy. I’m just following up with yesterday’s post. If you didn’t see that you won’t know what Billy and a Caribou have to do with anything. But it will become clear. I’ll fill you in once I’ve dealt with the MLM frustration stuff.

This is likely gonna sound familiar if you’ve been around the network marketing business for a while, especially the mlm frustration parts (except for Billy and the Caribou… that will be novel).

On the other hand if you’re just thinking about starting a business or new at it, this bit might get your head swivelling around like an NHL defenseman’s…..

Who’s heading into the corner for a puck with a big winger breathing down his neck and he’s looking for a way out of the mess he’s just about to get into.

Maybe just like the one you found yourself in when you signed up to get rich with mlm.

Making A Long Story of MLM Frustration Mercifully Short

There’s a lot more to the story but you don’t want to hear it all and I sure don’t enjoy telling it, but here goes anyway.

Way back in spring of 2003 I first ran face to face into my first MLM deal. To tell you the truth I was awestruck by the big guns and the logic of the system (for a while). They made it sound so simple to make easy money… FAST! Little did I know of the mlm frustration that was to come.

The names and occupational details of the folks I’ll be referencing have been modified to protect the innocent. But THEY said:

Just get 30 bums in the chair in front of me in the next 30 days and you’ll be on your way to MLM heaven

Or something along those lines.

Darned if I didn’t believe them! I wondered how I had managed to be so completely unaware of the mlm business model until then.

Nobody Had Told Me About MLM

Jeez, there was a Mary Kay lady and a Tupperware lady in the little town I lived in just outside of Winnipeg when I was working hard at the saving wetlands and wildlife business.

Nobody bothered to fill me in. That’s probably just as well because in those days I was so focused on saving the ducks and the sloughs they lived in, I would likely have paid no attention anyway.

But when I was introduced to the first opportunity years later, I thought if a pig farmer from Manitoba and a truck driver from Tennessee could hit 6 figures a year – so could I – right?

That’s what they told me. “If I can do this (the Pig Farmer talking), ANYBODY can do it.” Made it sound so simple it would be embarrassing NOT to reach the first company level in a few days.

I was impressed, perhaps naively. Could have been the copy of the $102,000 MLM cheque one of the guys told me he saw that night. For ONE month’s commissions! That was definitely a belief builder and sure as hell impressed everyone in the room, including me.

That’s Not What The 97% Experience

That’s the Out Of The Ordinary story thought and is definitely not what 97% of people who get started with network marketing experience. The ordinary is mlm frustration to the extreme.

But it sure sounded easy. Just get a bunch of people keen to make some extra money to one of the meetings and they will jump at the chance to join you once they get all the details.

But I soon found out. It isn’t that easy! I bet you know what I mean eh? You are likely no stranger to mlm frustration either.

Does this sound familiar?

Hotel Horror Becomes the Norm

Remember your excitement when your prospect swears he’ll show up at the meetings? And tells you how many people he knows? Gonna build a world-wide team and explode your group, and make 15K/month ASAP.
You can already taste the recognition you crave, desire and deserve at the next company meeting. To say nothing of the cheques (yeah we spell funny here in Canada) you’re gonna cash.

What happens next really takes the cake. The “rarin to go get em” prospect doesn’t have the simple courtesy to even show up! Won’t return your calls! Avoids you in public – you know the drill.

You make excuses to the other distributors and pretend everything is OK. But it absolutely isn’t, is it? Makes you feel downright sick to your stomach every time. MLM Frustration in spades!

After all – it’s people like that who ruin your dream – right? But you keep right on trying because…. Here comes more BS….

It’s A NUMBERS GAME

You just have to find the RIGHT people! Sound familiar? Rinse and repeat. Happens all the time! And that’s the Bull Shit that causes ALL that frustration. There is a better way but you need SKILLS and need to be a Professional Network Marketer. See more later!

The meetings weren’t all bad I guess. I met some cool people and had a lot of fun. Still friends 10-12 years later with a few.

Even made a few bucks on the way by… got healthier and learned some helpful lessons.

But I never got close to building an organization the size of a small city, which is what you need to earn serious money.

SO let’s talk about you. Why Are You Here Now? Same reason I am is my guess. If you’ve read this far I’m sure of it.

We Are Here To Make Some Serious Income

For sure we’re not here for just a few bucks? We’re here to earn serious sustainable income, create wealth and enjoy each precious moment of freedom it provides us. Right?

To serve whatever cause motivates us. For me it’s leaving a legacy of wealth and opportunity for my family and a positive impact on water and wetland conservation. For that I need a lot of money

P.S. Back to Billy, my Arctic research and our fresh meat supply. So why was having Billy there both a huge advantage and a problem all at the same time?

The advantage was that as an Inuit he could take as many caribou or moose he wanted, whenever he needed them. Ever had caribou steaks or standing rib roasts? Probably the best meats I have ever had.

We were able to shoot a caribou bull and store the meat in big coolers dug into the permafrost. Fresh meat issue solved.

Billy had an old Lee Enfield .303 calibre rifle that had last been used in a Polar Bear set. That is, it had been frozen into the side of a big hole in the ice, into which a seal carcass had been placed.

The carcass was tied to the trigger on the rifle so when a bear attempted to pull the carcass out, it would shoot itself. And apparently it had been successfully deployed the winter before.

The Sights Were Impossible

The sights on this rifle consisted of a front sight, filed to a razor thin point and a rear sight with a tiny scratch in place of what on most rifles would be a “v” shaped notch.

So when one day we rounded a corner in our 22 foot freighter canoe (actually a 24 footer modified to take a motor), and saw a bull caribou standing on the edge of the bay about 150 yards away, Billy hands me the rifle and says “take ‘em”.

I raise the gun and attempt to draw a bead on the bull. But I have two problems.

We are in a rocking canoe which makes it difficult enough to find and hold the mark. But even worse; I can’t even see the sights to line them up! They are just too damn fine for probably 99.99% of people, and for me, a myopic with spectacles, it’s a lost cause!

So Billy Dings The Caribou

So I give the rifle to Billy who promptly puts one bullet right between the eyes of that bull from about 100 yards. In a rocking canoe, using sights I can’t even get into focus!

Like I said, the prime rib roast we had that evening back at camp was about the tastiest, juiciest piece of game I ever had.

We had a little oven on the stovepipe of the wood stove, which made the most awesome roasts. I even baked bread in it. Best I ever ate… something I can’t prove to my family and at which they forever profess disbelief.

More later.
