Why shouldn't I help You For Free?? (Knowing that you may never buy anything from me!)

I have been asked many times, "Why would you help me?" "I'm not going to buy anything from you!" Or, the "big" question... "So if you are not making money off of helping me? How do you profit from it?" (Wondering all the time how I'm going to drain their bank accounts...)

The truth is there is a little profit in giving this help to YOU! Your friendship... Your like... Your trust... Your help... Your feedback... And maybe even Your leadership! No money changing hands, yet I will benefit plenty! (A multitude of friends, is worth more than "gold"!)

"So!" You ask, "How much is this FREE help worth?"
And my answer to that is, "How much are YOU willing to invest?)
"But" You'll say... "I thought You said it was FREE!"

Then I'd go on into how it was given free, yet, how You had to invest it into yourself, to really gain anything! Investing the time and effort to put it to work, or use it! In doing this investing, You are the recipient of your investment... So is it really FREE?

Lets liken it to the old story, of "giving a man a fish vs. teaching him how to fish"...

If You give a man a fish, he eats for a day! But, if You teach him how to fish, he eats well for the rest of his life! (I'm not sure of its origin/author)

That is why I help with Free Training (like teaching how to fish), so that You can go on to success in your business. But, if I just gave you a business, without any training, how long would you have the business? (According to statistics, less than 6 months)

So why again would I give You free help, through free training? How is it that I profit, if you don't join me?

This question is easy to answer too! If I train you to do Your business RIGHT, You will recommend me for your all friend's training too! (if they don't ask first) And sooner or later, by paying it forward, one of those well trained people will go into business with me! (and then I will be able to pick from the best... that are trained right by me!) Now I also have a team of trainers!

"But, that is a very high cost, just to get one person to join, isn't it? You might ask?
Its not so bad when you see the spiderweb effect (like ripples in a pond) of all the peoples lives, just one trained person makes!

This free training also gives more credibility to the whole industry! Like safety training has done for the mining industry... Accidents go down after safety training, like business failures go down after our free training! Everyone wins!

That is my thoughts... No real hidden agendas! Just people helping people, to better the World!

Till next time,
