iTunes Show Review Shout Outs!
Today’s review shout out goes to my Friend George Fourie, from down under in Australia who writes – Jackie is the ultimate innovator. I subscribe to many business podcasts but couldn’t find anything great that focused on our industry. Until now. About 7 years ago I was searching the internet, as you do, to find more information about the network marketing profession. All roads lead to Jackie’s websites. Not sure which episode it was where you mentioned that you don’t know SEO Jackie but that ain’t the truth. unless you’re just a natural. Jackie gives away more pure gold in this podcast that you can take straight to the bank. The top notch production keeps you even more engaged. Well done Jackie, keep on sharing the value!

Why It’s Never a Good Idea to Burn Bridges
It’s never a good idea to burn bridges with people and Direct Sales is no different. Sometimes, conflict can be created when people change companies; stop working; or in some way disappoint. Harsh words and actions can come back to bite you later.
Stay calm, cool and collected and wish others the best, because after all, it’s important that they find the right fit for themselves. If you keep the door open, they may return!
Here are a few things that can happen to cause a shift:
Leaders Leave and take other with them.
Companies change compensation plans.
When these things happen, tempers flare and it can seem like the right thing to lash out and bad mouth others. Perhaps you and your company are being bad mouthed.
But, as hard as it is, it is important to keep your cool, and use my “24 hour rule” before acting, or reacting to any situation.
Take a step back, think about things and wait to respond to anything until 24 hours has passed. You may be surprised at how differently you feel.
