A very common question I get from people learn the cutting edge online recruiting methods I teach, has to do with a concern about being scolded by an upline for “choosing a different path.”
For example, I was on a webinar a couple months ago and a woman asked how she should deal with an upline so entrenched in the old way of thinking, she’s afraid the upline might be critical and/or disagree with building online.
In some cases, there are leaders who will understandably monitor every move their reps make, watch their stats, review volume and call and email on a daily basis to see who we have prospected recently or showed the plan to.
You see, I know what I do works and once new reps and customers start rolling in for you, they are going to have questions and most likely, be negative about building the business differently than how they did it back in the ’80s or ’90s.
And this is a position I empathize with, because my upline, (not my company), once threatened me and said that I would lose my business because I was using online marketing methods, they didn’t approve of.
I think this question and issue comes down to this…
