Horses are something I have a healthy respect for, but I know nothing about. I’ve probably ridden on two or three in my lifetime (and they have all scared me rigid!). I’ve felt so high up and totally not in control: they are just not my thing.
But I know that stables and the equine industry would be really good contacts for my Forever Living Aloe business. The problem, is if I approach these types of businesses about the products, it doesn’t matter how wonderful the products are, I am sure that they will smell the fear of horses on me and I will lose all credibility.
What really matters in my business is sticking to my strengths, and building a team of people with the skills I lack, and then growing our businesses together. Network marketing with Forever is about teamwork and helping others, as you can read in my previous post on working as a team.
Forever Living do help us with information we can use to reach out to those with the skills we want to grow our teams, though. The latest company magazine has Mary King on the cover: those who love horses will know she is one of Britain’s most successful equestrians, with a career spanning 30 years and many medals from World Championships and Olympics to her name.
Mary discovered Forever through a mutual friend who approached her and told her all about the benefits of the products. This is where having the right connections comes in, as being introduced by a friend has much more meaning than approaching someone cold and with no knowledge. Ask me to show you a copy of the magazine.
So, do you know anyone who owns a horse or loves horses, or anyone with friends who live at the stables? If you do I would love a short chat with them to share with them what Mary and many other leading equestrians and vets love about Aloe Vera.
