Default Share your message without being salesy

I have been on this network marketing journey a while now. I have fallen into the traps of trying to spread my message too fast and inadvertently making people feel used. I wasn't trying to do that, but yeah, if you meet someone at a birthday party and tell them about your biz, that really wasn't what they bargained for. They were just hoping for some cake and ice cream with kids.I felt like a slimy saleswoman and knew this was not how I wanted to go about it.

So now that I am a bit wiser in my journey, I am trying to make new friends and broaden my circle with more elegance and grace. I don't really care what the outcome is any more with people I talk to. I want to meet people where they are and build something that is real with them. It makes it so much more comfortable, easy and organic. I share still who I am, what I do and who I am looking for, just at a better, more appropriate moment.

How do you best network without being salesy?

I just try to build relationships with people. Eventually you get to a point where you share what you do. I share but I don't verbally vomit all over them. If they ask questions, I answer, if they don't I leave it at that. It's still a relationship build. The more someone gets to know and trust you the more they will be open to taking a look at your product or the business you have.

I believe in helping others and giving people choices. I'll share free ways to make money with them, and it's up to them to take advantage.

I've always enjoyed helping people.
