What to Do When You’re Sick of Sending “Hey Girl” Messages

Tired of being a Spammy Sally and sending “hey girl” messages to everyone on your friends list?

When I moved out to Texas I got a job selling…get this, phone book advertising.

This was not 1980…I’m not THAT old!

No, my friends, this was 2015.

They say some people can sell a ketchup popsicle to a lady in white gloves…well, to do that job, that’s exactly the kind of sales person you had to be.

Imagine selling phone book advertising in an age where people Googled LITERALLY EVERYTHING!

I got told to get get out of people’s offices. I had doors slammed in my face. I was hung up on, yelled at, belittled, told to get a “real job”. I may as well have been a telemarketer. (Seriously, if you are a telemarketer, I don’t envy you and I apologize for all those times I’ve impolitely told you never to call me again and then hung up on you.)

I went home most days feeling completely defeated, hating my life, hating myself and when I did actually make a sale, trust me, I CELEBRATED!

It was during that time that I learned how truly hard sales and cold calling could be. I made myself a promise when I finally left that job that I would NEVER cold call again.

Fast forward 5 years…

I was a stay-at-home-mom who was introduced to a brand new, work-from-home opportunity and I was EXCITED about what that could mean for our family!

I hit the ground running…HARD! I read all the recommended network marketing books, listened to all of the podcasts and started out with the tried and true method of making lists and reaching out to my friends and family and asking them to join my team.

Needless to say, I found very little success.

As a matter of fact, I got told “No”, “It’s a scam”, “It’s one of those pyramid thingys” or I got ghosted altogether.

Fun times.

It wasn’t long before I felt like I was selling phone book advertising all over again!

I had tapped out my warm market and was back to cold calling.

I knew there had to be a better way…a more 21st century way to reach people that actually WANTED my products or opportunity!

That’s when I found system that worked!

No more cold messaging.

No more begging.

No more convincing, making empty promises. or forcing people like my mom to join my team so I didn’t look and feel like a complete failure.

I was able to build trust and rapport with a HUGE audience and focus on the things I really loved most about Network Marketing like LEADERSHIP, CAMARDERIE, TIME FREEDOM and $$$MONEY$$$!!

And I still had my dignity (AMEN?!)
