Sacrifice Your Wants…Invest In Your Business Instead:
A Story From Junalyn T:
“It was my day off today and had pre-planned to go shopping.
I planned to buy something for myself, like a bag, clothes or a pair of shoes.
Trust me I already owned these things but my human nature says I need to buy more.
Living a few years of your life like most people won’t, so that you can spend the rest of your life like most people can’t.
I stopped for a second and thought about my business. And then I changed my mind.
If I can spend a 100-dollar shoes, there is no reason why I can’t invest this in SFI instead.
So I turned back and decided to spend that $100 buying Tcredits and a gift certificate.
I then transferred these TCs to my movers to help them out. The gift certificate will be given to the first EA or TL next month. After all they are the reason why I am beginning to succeed in SFI.
What am I saying? This is not to brag or anything. I just want to share my personal experience that to invest in SFI is not that so hard. You just have to sacrifice/trade your wants sometimes. Say for example, If you are just starting up and you are struggling on how to invest, you can trade your coffee or cigarettes and save the money and invest in SFI instead. If you are really really serious with this business, you can do it. There is no reason you can’t.”
Now that’s what I call great entrepreneurial mindset! This story basically showed us the difference between WANT and NEED…
Thank you Junalyn for your very practical approach to advancing the SFI business. It really makes sense to me and given me another way to grow my business. Also, if one really needs to buy those items, they can be purchased from the TripleClicks stores. Still earning VP for more earnings.
