Still Learning

One of my favorite books is Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand.   (It is a pretty political book, if you hate it sorry).  There is one quote that really stands out to me. 

“If you don't know, the thing to do is not to get scared, but to learn.”

When I first started with Shelf Reliance there was a lot I didn’t know.  And sometimes I felt left out because I didn’t know. I was scared that I would screw up because I didn’t know something.    But I decided that the only way to get over my fear was to learn.  So I did. 
 I did a comparison of  food storage companies and products. 
 I asked a lot of questions.  I read everything, some times a couple of times. 
 I did experiments (Like the water filter mountain dew test—I figured if the filter could get all the chemicals out of mountain dew it could get anything out of water).   

And I learned.  I try to share everything I learn with you so can learn quickly what it took me a long time to learn.   

I’m still learning.  One of the things I’m trying to learn is to be a better recruiter. 

I know that there are some rock-star recruiters in Shelf Reliance (and even on my team) so I asked some of them how they do it.   Here is what they said.

Rachel Mano telling them how easy it can be

Amber Pearce I've added an extra item on my hostess check list. I have them watch our opportunity DVD before the party and tell them if they decide to consult we
will make their party a kick off party instead. Signed up my last 3 hosts
this way!

Chad Mano Here's a real tip. Now that you're successful go back and talk to the friends and family who weren't interested before. In the past two months we've had three family members sign up (not all to our 1st level though), one old college friend, and one friend of one of one of Rachel's college roommates. With a track record now they seem to ignore the fact that they think we're insane.

Rebecca Powell I work hard to recruit off of my Q customer list telling them they have already fulfilled the only requirement to receive commission as a SR consultant (besides purchasing their kit) and I like to say, "If you don't sell to your family and friends, someone else will. So it might as well be YOU!"

Over the next couple of weeks I’m going to try all of these things.  I challenge you to try them too. 
Remember:  “If you don't know, the thing to do is not to get scared, but to learn.” Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged
