Today and tomorrow I'm attending a life improvement seminar sponsored by BookWise. I left for a minute to go to the restroom. When I got there, the room was empty except for one woman, who was sitting in a stall...on her cell phone, trying to recruit someone into BookWise.

Now I prefer internet contact because I worry that hearing my six kids in the background will sound unprofessional. But isn't flushing toilets exponentially worse? Yikes! [img]smileys/smiley3.gif[/img]

Reminds me of this...

To All Employees:
To maximize productivity and make us more efficient, we are going to modify all work areas as shown below:

It is expected that this change will increase productivity by approximately 4.58%.

Very funny thread Alison! Just when you think you've heard all the MLM-freak stories![img]smileys/smiley36.gif[/img] I think we have these kinds of people in all kinds of businesses (and all kinds of families![img]smileys/smiley2.gif[/img] oh, the stories....).

Expect success!

Stevie Knight

More than exponentially! Exponentially squared or something. (I don't think having your 6 kids audible at home is necessarily always a bad thing, you know: in a sense you are saying to people "I work at home and home-school 6 kids and I'm still making a living from this business", which could be quite a plus?).

Hope tomorrow is fantastic and that you're enjoying the course! [img]smileys/smiley2.gif[/img]
