With a harem of Barbies and a crate of Warhammer to sell, I had my work cut out.
We’re in Car Boot Sale season and the only way to empty the house of gruesome plastic is to persuade the children that they can make money by selling their surplus toys.
And who ends up selling them while the children roam the stalls buying more junk?
You guessed it…
So there I was presiding over the high quality merchandise piled on the pasting table when my good friend from round the corner wandered over.
Now, we really are good friends. We go out for a drink. Our children are never out of each others houses – and he was once a distributor in my team.
However he never did anything and eventually left. Then he became fascinated as I built my business – and so he signed up again.
But he didn’t join my team. He went on the internet and joined someone else’s. But this doesn’t matter because he has decided to do it differently. He proudly states that he has an “exclusion zone” around his family and friends. That is to say that none of them know he is a distributor. None of them get offered the opportunity to reduce their household bills by 20%. He refuses to tell them how they can make a very good part-time income. He says this is because he doesn’t want to lose his friends…
Anyway he wandered up from his stall to mine and noticed that in among the toys were a stack of DVDs and our company newspaper.
“Does it work?” he asked. “Having them on the stall.”
It seemed an odd question. It never occurred to me to wonder whether it worked. I just have them there – why wouldn’t I? Every time somebody bought something (or didn’t) I just offered them an Independence – why wouldn’t I?
Well now I can tell him that it does work. Last night, I received the following email from someone who had bought some plastic rabbits. She wrote: “I have watched the DVD and am actually very interested. I am going to talk to my husband and see what he thinks of it all as it does mean paying £100 which we might not have to spare! Perhaps we can talk some more.”
Now we’re all going to get together on Thursday evening so I can show them how the money works.
