are thinking about starting a Shaklee home business, or you
have already built one and are now teaching others how to do the
same, you may find this message helpful. It is something we all go
through to get to the other side of success in this business or
in life, as you will see with Renee's story
Sales Leader, Renee Zaal, gave me this idea for this month's
newsletter because of what she told me
she experienced this past summer on a weekly conference
call we do together.
But That's Her Holding
That's right, Renee has no interest in snakes and was not
thrilled about holding this boaconstrictor at all. But while at her
little nephew's birthday party in the park this past summer, she saw
that a crowd of little children were watching a lady holding a
This woman that was holding the snake would ask the
children if they wanted to pet the snake and they said yes, but
their little minds said no. Each time they started to reach out to
even touch the snake, they would back away again and again and were
afraid to get too close to the snake.
So Renee decided, even though she does
not like snakes and never held one herself, to set the example for
the children so they would get over their fear. She felt that the
only way these children were going to get over their fear of the
snake was to see someone else take the snake from this lady and hold
it themselves. In other words, she first needed to get over her
So she "bravely" walked up to the lady
and took the snake into her arms. Then one-by-one, the children all
gathered near and began to take turns holding the
The reason I use Renee's story is because it is a great one
to stress this point. To do anything new in life, such as
moving into a leadership role, we must first get over our fear
of the unknown. Every person has to do this when first
attempting anything in life for the first time and this business is
When this business becomes second nature to you, it is
at that point that you really own it. But when first starting
out in building your business, you may be feeling scared. After
all, when was the last time you built a business and when was the
last time you built a Network Marketing business?
So you may be thinking
thoughts such as:
Will I be able to pull
What if I fail? What
will people think of me?
What if people
What if they ask me
how much I'm earning if I am just getting
This is normal to think
this way for most new people starting out in this business. But you
can become very comfortable in this business very fast if you
will only do one thing.
And that one thing
Just Do It!
right, the more you do it, the better you get it.
The better you
get, the more you do it.
So, it makes sense to just do it.
Don't focus on what might happen.
Focus on what you want to happen.
Don't think about bad results that could

Know why you
are sold on Shaklee, both on the products and what this business can
provide for you and your family. If you see it as a great
benefit, then be willing to share it with everyone. Those who
see it for themselves as you have will want to join you. Help them
reach whatever core desires they want to achieve for their
family by teaching them to follow the same process you are
don't see this business as a fit for themselves, be sure they
understand the benefits of using these great products, and when they
do, help them to pay for them. If they don't see a benefit now, many
may change their mind when either their money runs out or their
health goes south. So be sure to let them know how to contact you in
the future when they are ready.
The point is, Just
Like Renee did, she did
not think much at all about her own fear, she focused on the end
result of helping these children get over their fears. So my
question to you is what are you focused on? What is your end
result or core desire? Is it exciting or just a wishful thought?
It's important to know this before you even get started.
So don't lock any doors
behind you, but do open new ones all the time. Because that
really is the key to success in this industry. Ask anyone who has
made it to the top in this industry and you will find this always to
It's only when you get
over your fears, will you be able to help others get over their
fears. After awhile, you will get so comfortable in talking to
people that soon you will say to your
“Tell me something, why
would I want you in my business?”
It is at that point, and
that point only, that you would now own your own business and have
stepped up to what is called true Leadership in this industry! When
you reach out to this point, the sky is your only

process in place, which most people in Network Marketing do not, how

you to first know where you are going and how to get
