Happy Friday: Meetings

August 8, 2008

Friday was the day when my upline group had its weekly core group meetings. I’ve seen recent schedules for other organizations, and it looks like Friday is still the day for many Amway Motivational Organizations. Right now, IBOs are no doubt dusting off their suits and ties and getting ready to drive down to the local hotel for a one-hour business presentation, followed by an hour of nuts-and-bolts training.

My Friday meetings were over 45-minutes away, and I shudder to think how much gas I would be wasting and spending today if I were still in the business. Travel time is an often overlooked expense for beginning IBOs, who are told that it only takes an extra 8-12 hours a week to earn thousands per month. Does that time-commitment also include driving from place to place? I don’t think so.

Now that I’m out of the Amway business, I’m really happy to have my nights and weekends back for myself. I’m going to kick back, have some home-cooked dinner, and watch the Olympic Opening ceremonies from the comfort of my own home.

Current IBOs, how long has it been since you missed a meeting? How long has it been since you deliberately skipped a meeting for an important date, social function, or just to rest? Your business isn’t going to collapse overnight, so give yourself a Happy Friday and take a break from the typical IBO routine!

    Thanks, but I don’t take advice from a quitter.
