Motivation: when it is required?
Yesterday I was getting a haircut, and the barber, a talkative guy, was whining how bad business men these Chinese are. I apologize for the racism, but those were his words. He said when you go to their shops, they don't say hello. They don't smile. They don't talk to you. They don't ask how you are doing. Don't say good bye etc. All I said was,"But they are making good money".
The truth is, china town is the cheapest spot in Toronto. I would be paying half amount for the same haircut there. (It's far else I'd be there!). I won't care if a salesman talks to me at all. As a matter of fact, I'd be rather happy.
This got me thinking. So does that mean that in all other shops where salesmen / saleswomen are overly courteous, I am paying for their courtesy as well? I don't wanna pay for that! I am much happy to do without it. I am not alone. There are many people who choose to go to China town for shopping. Attraction: saving.
Customer wants to save money; business owner wants to make money. That's the first rule of business. You don't need an MBA degree to get that, do you?
But in Quixtar, why there is so much motivation and hype required? Is it there to cover the lack of money for an average IBO? I don't get any motivation to go to work. I continue to go there. Why? Money. If there was money in Quixtar, they won't even need to 'show' the opportunity. Why 90% jobs are never advertised in North America?
Keep all the motivation, show me the money!! But wait, isn't that how you make money?
