So this question popped up today in general conversation, the gist of the conversation was basically about an invitation I received for two for a marketing seminar. The party I was speaking to stated if someone were able to make a lot of money why would they give a seminar and share their knowledge with other people? Clearly knowing up front that he was a Marketing director trying to help others make more money online, it was plain that his objectives were to sell marketing tools after he was through with the seminar.
His brochure clearly stated that after the free meal and seminar ,also free, that he would have Cd's available to aid in this endeavor and if after purchasing and reviewing, if you still felt it wasn't what you needed you had 3 days in which to acquire a refund.
I was quite taken aback by the fact that someone would be shocked that others out there are willing to share their knowledge and help. Though offering free meal and MP3 player to increase his audience size, I for one, am all about spreading the wealth and being a team player.
Not everyone is out there to scam others, and when we start to question every one's actions and motives, we may find ourselves in a very negative place. There are still MANY good people out there, and it is important that we not get jaded, and we give one another the benefit of the doubt.
In this specific case we were under no obligation to get anything, so why not see if this is a helpful tool? A free lunch, new people, free gift, and an afternoon out, I say why not? What do you say? ( let me know)
I myself love meeting people, sharing, networking and bonding with others, to me the rest is icing. So, if some of you out there find that as of late, you haven't taken any new paths or wrote things off as ploys, remember Gods help comes in all forms, and sometimes in the least expected places.
I hope you all have a blessed and fruitful upcoming weekend, and for those of us expecting some tricky weather be safe...May God cradle you and those you love in His loving embrace Patricia....©
