I’m gonna say something... and I’m gonna try my best to word it in a way that doesn’t upset anyone, because that is NOT my intentions.
While scrolling through social media, I’m seeing a lot of people saying negative things about those who work in network marketing like myself. I’ve seen people say things like it’s rude of us to still reach out to people about our products and services because of what’s going on in the world right now. I’ve seen people mock our posts on social media. I always see people judging what we do, but I’m seeing it now more than ever.
First of all, do I think this pandemic should be something people are using to leverage their businesses? Do I think people should be using it as a way to recruit people to join their teams? Absolutely not. Personally, I feel like that is insensitive way to approach it.
But am I going to stop working MY business just because some other people are out of work right now? No. I feel terrible for those people who now are not getting a paycheck. I feel terrible for those people whose hours are getting cut back. I hate that all of this is happening. But what I do is my job. This is my source of income for my family and just because others are out of work doesn’t mean I need to cut back on what I’m doing. I shouldn’t have to feel guilty for continuing to share the opportunities and services I offer. Plus, a healthy routine & supportive community is something people need now more than ever, so it would be very selfish of me not to invite others to join at this time.
That’s my thoughts, and you can take it however you’d like. But don’t shame those of us out there for continuing to work towards our goals. It may not be for you, but for a lot of us, this is how we support our family’s. Xo - 2 days ago
