The Promise and the Price

Just when we thought that you knew everything about this type of marketing -- in our ever-so-humble opinion, the very BEST type of marketing -- up crops an old chestnut of PROFOUND truth  that we discover not all of you know.

Which brings us to today's feature.

Although we discourage distributors from comparing their team results to the results of some other distributor, nevertheless, comparisons happen.

When we bring up Bonnie Keller as Bocannaco's #1 revenue-generator, it is not for the purpose of causing comparisons. It is for the purpose of engendering excitement because 'if Bonnie can do it, I can too'!

But the fact is, each person has their own 'numbers' to work through.  And the best way we know to explain that is through an excellent true story that comes from Amway experience, and it is entitled "The Price of the Promise".

Mark Yarnell, a minister in a small town in Texas, was headed for bankruptcy and just about to lose his car and home. He looked for a way out and discovered network marketing. Luckily, he had a wise sponsor.
The sponsor gave Mark “THE PROMISE”.
“This business can set you free financially in one to three years.”
But he also gave him “THE PRICE”. “To succeed, you will have to face and conquer 4 major enemies.”
Mark said, “It’s a deal.”
Mark began by inviting 200 friends over to his house to watch a video. 80 said “No, not interested”
– Mark had encountered ENEMY #1: Rejection.
He thought, “No problem. My sponsor warned me about that. I’ve got 120 people still coming over.” Guess what?
– He had just encountered ENEMY #2: Deception.
Mark thought, “No problem. My sponsor warned me about that. I’ve got 70 people who watched the tape.” Guess what? 57 said “Not Interested”.
– He had just encountered ENEMY #3: Apathy.
Undaunted, Mark thought, “No problem. 13 people signed up.” Guess what? 12 of them dropped out of the business shortly thereafter.
– He had just encountered ENEMY #4: Attrition.
Attrition had left Mark with just one serious associate. But to this day, that single distributor earns Mark over $50,000 per month.
Mark Yarnell’s story is NOT Unique!
You may have heard of Bill Britt, one of the most successful distributors in Amway. Some years ago, 20/20 did a feature story on Amway. They spent 19 minutes interviewing whiners and complainers – several distributors who had failed and showed the garages full of products they couldn’t sell. During the last minute of the show, Mr. Britt was interviewed in front of his palatial home.
He was asked, “Mr. Britt, this business has obviously worked for you. What’s your secret?”
He replied, “There is no secret. I simply showed the plan to 1200 people. 900 said, ‘No’ and only 300 signed up. Out of those 300, only 85 did anything at all. Out of those 85 only 35 were serious, and out of those 35, 11 made me a millionaire.”
Like Mark Yarnell, Bill worked through the numbers.

According to Richard Poe in Wave Three while starting Amway, Rich DeVos and Jay Van Andel, America’s eleventh richest people, recruited 500 people. 495 dropped out. The five that didn’t quit built Amway. All $7 billion of Amway’s business was built under those 5 people. Jay and Rich had to work through their numbers.
The good news about Bocannaco is..... you can make a great income, help a lot of people, and get to HOMEOSTASIS without WRINKLES and with lots of ENERGY while working through your numbers!!
