A police officer pulls over a speeding car. The officer says, "I clocked you at 80 mile per hour, sir."
The driver says, "Gee, officer, I had it on cruise control at 60, perhaps your radar needs calibrating."
Not looking up from her knitting the wife says sweetly from the passenger seat, "Now don't be silly, dear, you know that this car doesn't have cruise control."
As the officer writes out the ticket, the driver looks over at his wife and growls, "Can't you keep your mouth shut for once?"
The wife smiles demurely and says, " You should be thankful your radar detector went off when it did."
As the officer makes out the second ticket for the illegal radar detector unit, the man glowers at his wife and says through clenched teeth, "Darn it, woman, can't you keep your mouth shut."
The officer frowns and says, "And I notice that you're not wearing your seat belt, sir. That's an automatic $75 fine."
The driver says, "Yeah, well, you see officer, I had it on, but took it off when you pulled me over so that I could get my license out of my back pocket."
The wife says," Now, dear, you know very well that you didn't have your seat belt on. You never wear your seat belt when you're driving."
And as the police officer is writing out the third ticket the driver turns to his wife and barks, "WHY DON'T YOU SHUT THE HELL UP??"
The officer looks over at the woman and asks, "Does your husband always talk to you this way, Ma'am?"
"Oh, heavens no, officer. Only when he's been drinking."
Over the years I have seen some of my leaders who do not do their business on proper MLM principles. I have also heard some leaders who say or teach things they should'nt say or teach. I have also seen some who did things that hurt the company and the MLM industry as a whole. These leaders probably think I do not know or will ever know as I was not around when these things were done or said. Let me guarantee all of you one thing. I know. Your wife (Upline/downline/crossline) told me.
However, I want all of these leaders to know 5 things.
1/ Before you go around making mistakes because you have thought up something new or want to try something new in your MLM business, why not talk to me first? I am available.
2/ It is OK to make mistakes. We all do. MLM is a complex business especially when it is your desire to be big and one of the best in your company. Small potatoes make small or no mistakes. Giants make more and sometimes gigantic mistakes. I understand.
3/ Do not be frighten or be embarassed that I know. I am your friend and a fellow senior distributor who has been in this business for over 30 years. I know how or why or what you think at every stage of your MLM business and have the wisdom to know that it is all part of your growing up.
4/ Do not be angry with the person who squeal on you for by right you should be grateful. Do not be angry even when the person who squeal on you have bad motives or tell me things that are not true and have made up stories, MLM is a people business. By the way, I know these people too. I can read most people like a book.
5/ Do not continue to make the same mistake after I have pointed it out to you. Mistakes made by hardworking and aggressive leaders can be very damaging and run out of control. Eddy Chai.
