The other day a network marketer asked me to help her think of a different name for an "opportunity meeting" than "opportunity meeting." She felt that the phrase might be a bit worn out and less appealing than it was in the past.

Learning this system was certainly powerful, but without action, learning the system was useless.
Nearly every chiropractor that took the seminar had the same burning question — "How do I get 30 new patients?" The chiropractor always had the same response, "I don't know one way to get 30 new patients, but I know 30… Continue reading
