So What do Polaroids and a MLM business have to do with one another?
Many of you probably don’t know that I was an advertising photographer for the last 30 years. I came across this video today that got me thinking about Polaroids, and a MLM Business…
In a MLM Business, going for NO is really what it’s all about. You have to talk with enough people every day and go through those NO’s, just to get a YES!
Well, back in the day when we used to shoot “Film & Polaroids”…(What the heck are film and polaroids.) lol. We used to give the art directors a hard time and it was a running joke in the studio about the amount of Polaroids we’d shoot for just one shot.
The saying was, “Well the right Polaroids in this box someplace”
The typical scenario was… I was given a layout prior to the shoot and it was my job to bring that illustration to life on a piece of film. The final shot usually had to follow the layout to the T.
The crew and I would work diligently setting up and tweaking the lighting etc. and then shoot a Polaroid to check everything before exposing film. Naturally the art director would look at the first Polaroid (which looked exactly like the layout) and would want to move something, be it the product or change the lighting a bit.
Another Polaroid was taken and the AD would make yet another change. I can hear them now, and they all would say the exact same thing… “Let’s try this and see.”
After about 2 hours of moving the light here and there, (you know, just to see) we would always end right back up were we started… At the very first Polaroid!
The “Right Polaroid” was in the box, often times it was the very first one, not always, but… We had to go through the steps to find “That Right Polaroid”!
So a MLM business and going for NO is very much like the Polaroid.
Your “Yes” is in that box, so to speak. You just have to be out there each and everyday talking, inviting, and digging through the box of Polaroids to find that YES!
Far too many people get into a MLM business with the thought of getting rich quick. Network Marketing and a MLM business aren’t going to make anyone rich quick!
The fear of rejection and that nasty little 2 letter word, N.O. is what keeps 90% of the people starting a MLM business from being successful.
It’s up to you to go out and find it! If NO is keeping you from talking to people about your MLM business, then your are seriously setting yourself up for failure.
If your upline hasn’t been exactly helpful in showing you how to “Find Your Polaroid” and your are looking for a way to get past that dirty little 2 letter word, let’s connect.
