How to Create a Team Culture in Your Network Marketing Business

Today, I want to teach you everything I know about how to create a team culture in your network marketing business.  I should tell you right up-front that this is one area I am REALLY working hard to improve in my own business.  It’s been one of my biggest challenges since I started building my network marketing business online, and I also see most other distributors struggling with the same thing.

Hopefully, my insights and experience can steer you in the right direction so you don’t have to make the same mistakes that I did.

What is a Culture?

Here’s one definition I found online.  “A culture is a way of life of a group of people–the behaviors, beliefs, values, and symbols that they accept, generally without thinking about them, and that are passed along by communication and imitation from one generation to the next.”

The best example I can share with you is the military.  I spent 15 years in the Army and the experience was very different from being a civilian.  As I see it, the military is a sub-culture within the American culture.  It has its own set of values, beliefs, rules, policies, procedures, customs and courtesies.

People in the military talk a certain way.  They dress a certain way.  They act a certain way.  There are rules that are very different from rules outside of the military.  There are traditions, customs and courtesies that are followed and honored.  People inside the military culture understand it.  Most people outside of the military culture don’t get it.

Within our society, there are probably thousands of different cultures and sub-cultures, each with their own set or rules, customs, traditions, courtesies and ways of doing things. 

Why Your Network Marketing Team Needs a Culture

You might be asking yourself “why does my network marketing team need a team culture?”  That is a great question.  Your team needs a culture of its own for a couple of different reasons.  First of all, everyone wants to feel like they belong to something bigger than themselves.  People want to be part of something great.  People want to spend time and be around other people who are like them, with similar goals and interests.

Another reason your team needs its own culture is because most people on your team will have low self-esteem, lack confidence in themselves, and have worthiness issues. Your culture can encourage your team to work on their personal development, get their thinking right, and get out of their own way.

Your team culture can give people time to grow UNTIL they develop the right skill-set and mind-set they need to succeed, so they can go out and build a big business.

Examples of a Team Culture in Network Marketing

When it comes to team cultures in network marketing, one company really stands out: AMWAY.  No, I am not affiliated with Amway either, although it was the first network marketing company I ever joined.

Amway is far from perfect, but their team cultures are the best in the industry.  They do a good job at keeping people around five, ten, twenty, even thirty or more YEARS!

What they do right is create an atmosphere that people are happy to be part of.  People are encouraged to attend meetings, rallies, listen to motivational tapes, counsel with their upline, set goals, and work on their personal development.

Most serious distributors will attend several meetings each month, where they can hang around other people in the team who have similar interests and goals.

In Amway, most of the distributors are taught to dress the same (blue suit and red tie) when they show the plan.  There is a lingo or jargon that is used.  People read similar books and listen to similar tapes so they start to think alike.

Some people might call this brainwashing.  I disagree.  Let’s go back to my definition of culture again for a moment.  “A culture is a way of life of a group of people–the behaviors, beliefs, values, and symbols that they accept, generally without thinking about them, and that are passed along by communication and imitation from one generation to the next.”

I would argue that almost everything you know and think right now has been taught to you by your culture, probably without you even realizing it.

Here are a few examples:

  • Picking your favorite sports team because of family preferences or where you live
  • Attending a certain college based on its reputation or price
  • Driving a certain automobile because of the way it makes you feel
  • Being frugal or choosing to try and keep up with the Jones’s

The truth is most of us make decisions based upon the values and beliefs that we were taught by our culture.

How to Create Your Own Team Culture in Your Network Marketing Business?

This is a million dollar question and I’m going to try and give you a million dollar answer.

You need to create an atmosphere (culture) that people are happy to be part of and one that gives people a sense of belonging.  It’s next to impossible to do that on the internet.

One of the reasons for the high drop-out rates with internet recruits is the lack of culture.  There’s no face to face time.  Everything is done through email or video and it’s just not the same as meeting face to face.  It’s hard to build relationships and establish a culture online.

If you want to develop your own team culture for your network marketing business you need to do a few things.  Here are some things that come to mind.

# 1 A weekly or monthly meeting – Love them or hate them, meetings are powerful.  When you bring 20, 50, 100 or more people with similar interests together it’s powerful.  It gives people something to look forward to and a sense of belonging.

# 2 A recommended reading list – You should have your team members reading similar books to help them develop their skills.

# 3 A weekly call – Your team should have a weekly call to share information, share ideas, and learn new skills.  It’s also a great way to inject some motivation into your team.

# 4 Big regional events every 90 days – These are VERY powerful events, typically done once a quarter.  It’s where people from several states get together for a big event with several thousand people.

# 5 Standardized training for all team members – You need some type of standardized training for everyone on your team, so everyone is getting the same information.

# 6 A powerful recognition system – This could be one of the most important parts of your team culture.  Most people crave appreciation and recognition more than anything else.  Even worse, most people feel underappreciated at home and at their job, so if you can make them feel appreciated, you will keep them around.

# 7 Team jargon and lingo – You want to have your own jargon and lingo that your company or team uses that only people on your team understand.

These are just a few things you can do to create your own team culture for your network marketing team.

Final Thoughts

In summary, culture is a very important part of society.  People want to belong to something bigger than themselves.  People feel comfortable hanging around people with similar interests and values.  To make it big in your network marketing business, you’re going to need to create a team culture where people can experience a sense of belonging, feel appreciated and get the training they need to succeed.   If you haven’t already created a team culture yet, you should start working on it now.

What are your thoughts?  What do you do to create a culture on your team?  Leave a comment below to tell me what you think.  I look forward to hearing from you.

Something Good’s Gonna Happen Book Review: Top 47 Paul Orberson Quotes

Paul Orberson is a legend in the network marketing industry.  He is a former seven figure monthly earner with Excel Communications and he was also the founder of his own network marketing company (FHTM).  His book “Something Good’s Gonna Happen” is a wonderful book about his story in network marketing and what you need to do to be successful in your business.

It’s well written, organized and easy to follow.  It’s loaded with so many great tips and insights on how to be successful in life and how to grow your business.  If you haven’t read a copy yet you should.

What I want to do in the paragraphs below is share some of my favorite quotes from the book.  Each quote is in bold and italics.  After each quote I will also share my own insights.  The quotes are listed in no particular order.  Enjoy.

# 1 You don’t have to be a special breed of dog to do something special with your life.  Anyone can do something extraordinary if they have a game plan, do the work and stick with it.

# 2 In baseball, as well as in life, you have to play the entire game, from start to finish.  Building a business takes time.  Anyone can start, but you have to “finish the game” if you want to succeed.  You can’t just play one inning and expect to succeed.

# 3 I’m gonna get at one thing and do it good.  Focus.  Don’t try and do too many things at once.

# 4 By my late 20s, I had quit dreaming.  Most people are good dreamers as kids, but they stop dreaming once they become an adult.

# 5 That’s what Excel did for me. It allowed me to dream of financial independence. Nothing else I had tried offered me the big, financial rewards with basically little or no financial risk.  Network marketing is the only business model I know of where you can start a business for less than $100, have leverage without employees and build a residual income.

# 6 You personally recruit until you don’t have to recruit anymore.  How many people will you need to sponsor to succeed?  As many as it takes.

something goods gonna happen# 7 There are two ways in this country to create wealth – to multiply money or to multiply people. If you don’t have any money, then you better take a look at multiplying people.  Most people don’t have money to multiply so they need to learn how to multiply people.

# 8 To make it big financially, personal desire and commitment are the most important factors.  You have to really WANT to succeed in this business and you must commit until you succeed.

# 9 A person’s result does not change the magnitude of the opportunity. Network marketing guarantees equal opportunities; it does not guarantee equal results. There is no guarantee of success in anything in life, just an opportunity.  What you do with it is up to you.  Individual results will always vary.

# 10 I had to start out with my business before I could know how it was going to turn out. That’s the key! The first step to success is to get started.

# 11 I don’t think you need to know what you want out of life, because the things you want will change. I think you need to know exactly what you don’t want out of life.  Most people don’t know what they want to do with their life, but these same people know what they don’t want.  For me, I simply did not want a job.

# 12 In its simplest form, network marketing is actually a friendly conversation waiting to happen.  Network marketing is nothing more than a business of sharing.

# 13 Owning your own business is the only way to eventually gain more control of your day-to-day schedule. You will never have time freedom working a day job.

# 14 All of us can do something great if we just get out of our own way. We underestimate our greatest opponent in life: ourselves.  We are our own worst enemies.

# 15 Most of us shy away from things that make us step out of our comfort zone.  The land of unfamiliar is a scary place for most people.  Most folks hate change, even if it is for the better.

# 16 People are so busy planning their life, then it’s over.  Don’t forget to make time to live your life.

# 17 What price are we willing to pay to secure something that is really important to us?  Everything you want in life comes with a price.  You can pay the price now or pay it later.

# 18 There can’t be a testimony in life without a test! Nothing worth accomplishing in life is fast or easy.

# 19 Fear, I’ve learned, is nothing more than premeditated failure.  Most of the things we fear will never come true.

# 20 Before we can enjoy the ride, there’s work to be done.  You must pay the price first; sow before you can reap.

# 21 Until we show that we can commit to something and stick with it, those who are closest to us are just going to roll their eyes and say, “Okay, here’s just one more thing.”  If you’re constantly quitting things, your friends and family will always be skeptical.

# 22 Pain is the only difference between knowledge and doing. Just because you know how to do something won’t make you successful.  You still have to go out and do it.

# 23 There is no foolproof plan to determine the best candidates for the network marketing industry.  At the end of the day, you never really know WHO will build the business.

# 24 I only took about twenty to thirty seconds to tell people what I was doing. If they didn’t respond with a question about the Excel business, or they didn’t show any interest at all, I simply wouldn’t talk about it any further.  Don’t try to convince people to your way of thinking.  Be short and to the point.  If they ask question or want more information, give it to them.  If not, move on to the next person.

# 25 We never know whether the words we are sharing are falling on rock or falling on fertile ground.  At the end of the day, you never know who will be interested in what you have to offer and who won’t.

# 26 In network marketing our goal is to elevate, uplift and help as many people as possible.  Your goal is to add value to other people’s lives.

# 27 Most people do only what they are required to do, but successful people do a little bit more, and in some cases a lot more.  Always do more than you are paid to do and you will one day get paid more than you actually do.

# 28 The middle mile links the beginning to the end. We all know we have to endure it. It is the most dangerous time in any undertaking, when quitting looks awfully good.  Most people quit within 3-12 months because things aren’t going as fast as they want them too.

# 29 I really believe we all must be accountable to someone.  Find an accountability partner for your business and check in with them once a week.

# 30 Winners act in spite of doubt. Let your actions control your fears rather than letting your fears control your actions.

# 31 If you are going to be successful, you have to have total faith in what you are doing.  If you don’t 100% believe in what you are doing it will be hard to succeed.

# 32 It makes financial sense to put yourself into an industry that will pay for years to come.  There’s more to life than trading hours for dollars.  Ultimately, you want something that pays you multiple times for doing work one time.

# 33 When a company goes public, the emphasis shifts to pleasing the shareholder. Work with privately held MLM Companies whenever possible.

paul orberson# 34 We don’t control our habits; our habits control us.  Form good habits and you will become a winner.

# 35 I hear about shortcuts, such as primarily growing the business on the Internet, but there is no substitute for getting out there and communicating with people face to face.  There is no shortcut to success.  Roll up your sleeves and do the work.

# 36 We can’t carry everybody in the world with us. We have to take the willing.  Help everyone but spend most of your time working with the willing.

# 37 It really is easier to give birth in our business than it is to raise the dead.  If your business isn’t growing much, find new people.  You won’t hit your next goal with the same team.

# 38 We have to spend our time where it is most beneficial to the business.  Work smart and focus on the money producing activities.

# 39 To be successful in business, our focus must always be on the other person.  Network marketing is not about you.  It’s about your prospect, customer or team member.  Make them feel good and important.

# 40 Network marketing is the little guy’s chance to do something.  This is one of the last business models around where someone with little capital, education, experience, and resources can still make a lot of money.

# 41 We need to treat people right, regardless of whether they can or ever will be able to help us in our business.  Always treat people as well as you would treat your own daughter.

# 42 Having a lot of money just makes us more of what we are.  Money is neither good nor bad.  It’s what you do with it that matters most.

# 43 Not everyone is willing to pay the price to win, and even some who are willing to pay the price for a while won’t pay it long enough. You have to stay in the game UNTIL you succeed.

# 44 I think most people come into our type of business because it provides hope. All people start new businesses because they hope for a better future.

# 45 I think multiplying people or multiplying money are the only two ways to make big money in this country. If you don’t have money to multiply, you need to learn how to multiply people.

# 46 Network marketing guarantees equal opportunities; it does not guarantee equal results.  There is no guarantee of success in anything you do.  Individual results will always vary.

# 47 When we introduce our business, we are not only talking to that person, we are talking to everybody that person knows.  Make a friend and meet their friends.

Final Thoughts

In summary, “Something Good’s Gonna Happen” by Paul Orberson is a must read book for any network marketer.  I learned about in on Amazon and decided to check it out.  Overall, I give it a 9 of 10 and really enjoyed it.  If you haven’t read it yet, you should.

Top 10 MLM Recruiting Mistakes in Network Marketing

Today, I want to share what I consider to be the top 10 recruiting mistakes in network marketing.  This list is really a list of the major things I have done wrong in my network marketing career (when it comes to recruiting) and learned from my mistakes.  No, I’m not proud of these mistakes, but maybe you can learn from what I have done wrong in the past.

To begin, I have to tell you that I don’t really like the word recruit.  I like the word sponsor much more. The word recruit comes across as “getting someone” so they can do something for you. The word sponsor, to me anyway, means that you bring someone into the business, you work for them, and you help them.  Trust me, there is a big difference between those two mindsets.

That being said, here are 10 recruiting mistakes I’ve made during my MLM Career. They are listed in no particular order.

# 1 Desperation

This is one of the most common mistakes I see new network marketers make.  First off, when you are desperate, other people can sense it.  No one wants to do business with someone who is desperate.  To avoid being desperate you have to be able to detach yourself from the outcome and not worry whether or not the person you are talking to signs up as a customer or distributor.  You need to believe in yourself, your products, your company and the industry. There is no reason to bug, pressure, or chase anyone.  Have good posture and you will attract the right people.

# 2 Not Asking for the Sale

Not asking for the sale is a big mistake.  After you talk with someone, and they express and interest, you have to ask for the sale.  No, I’m not talking about pressuring or convincing someone either.  You need to assume they are going to join your team and you need to get them signed up.  The “close” should be a natural part of the process, nothing abrupt.  It can be as simple as “let’s get the distributor form filled out and get you started today” or “would you like one or two bottles of this magic juice?”

# 3 Saying Too Much

Some people actually think that the talkers are the ones who do the best in our industry.  Not true.  It’s the listeners that do the best.  Don’t bombard your prospect with information overload or monopolize the conversation.  Get good at asking questions and listening.  Give them enough information, but not too much.  Remember that your prospect doesn’t need to know every detail about the company, product or compensation plan before they get started. Whenever you are conversing with a prospect, they should be doing 80% of the talking.

# 4 Approaching the Wrong Type of People

This is another huge mistake people make when it comes to recruiting in network marketing. I’m not telling you to pre-judge people, but I am telling you to be smart about who you talk to. Typically speaking, broke and unemployed people are not your best prospect.  People in dire financial straights who need immediate income are not your best prospect.  People who are lazy, have bad people skills, and aren’t willing to hustle are bad prospects.  Ideally, you want to approach people with desire, who have some disposable income, who have a good self-image, they like people and people respect them. Typcially, people who NEED the business seldom join, and rarely do anything if they do join.

# 5 Going for the Jugular

So many network marketers go right for the jugular when they meet a new prospect.  They go for the sale or pitch before they’ve made any small talk or pre-qualified the person.  Most people resent this.  No one likes to be sold to, especially from a complete stranger.  It’s much better to start a friendly conversation with someone first, to ask questions, and listen for a PROBLEM that you can offer a solution for.

# 6 Using Hype, Pressure or Lies

Yes, I have to put this one on the list.  If you’re talking to your prospect about making six figures their first year in the business or making six figures a month, or fast money, or easy money, you are really doing our industry an injustice!  Stop it!  This business is just like any other business. It’s not easy and it’s not fast money.  It takes time, hard work, and a certain skill-set to succeed. Be honest with your prospects.  Tell them it won’t be easy, but it will be worth it.  Be low key and avoid the hype, pressure and lies at all costs.  Treat every prospect as nice as you would treat your own daughter.

# 7 Not Working the Numbers

Selling is a numbers game.  You can’t talk to 10 or 20 prospects and expect much to happen.  This business is about massive exposures.  You’re going to personally have to talk to hundreds, maybe thousands of people to build your team.  You need to consistently approach two to ten people per day, every day and never stop.  I’ve never met ANYONE who consistently prospected 10 people a day who didn’t achieve success in our industry.  Most people who fail simply never work the numbers.  Even realtors, insurance agents and other professionals have to work through a large amount of prospects to find new clients.  The same holds true in every industry. If you talked to just 10 people a day for a year, you would approach 3,650 people.  If you closed one in twenty people, you would sponsor more than 180 people!  Chew on that.  That is the power of working the numbers.

# 8 Not Following Up

The money is in the follow-up.  Most people will need at least five to ten exposures from you before they sign their name to the dotted line on the distributor agreement.  Maybe one in every fifty people you sponsor might sign up on the spot.  Everyone else needs more exposures and more follow up.  You have to consistently stay in touch with people and you need to give them additional tools, resources and information each time you talk with them. You have to walk them through a process.  Most of the people I sponsor take 60 to 90 days to sign up (if not longer) from the time I first talk to them about what I have to offer.

# 9 Taking Rejection Personally

I know it’s much easier said than done, but you shouldn’t take rejection personally.  When people tell you NO they are not saying NO to you.  They are saying no to what you are offering them.  You have to have thick skin.  You are simply offering people something great.  You have no control over how they respond or what their level of interest will be.  As I mentioned earlier, detach yourself from the outcome.

# 10 Not Developing Their Skills

Not developing their skills is another recruiting mistake that many network marketers make. Let’s face it, selling and talking to people is an art form that has to be studied and learned.  If you’ve never done MLM or selling before, you’ll need to invest some time and money to sharpen your people skills and selling skills.  You need to learn how to prospect, show the plan, follow up, and what to say to people.  You should read books and take courses on selling and take whatever training your company or upline offers you.

Bonus Tip: Leading with the Business Opportunity

While most people will disagree with me on this one (and that’s perfectly fine) I truly believe that leading with the business opportunity is a HUGE recruiting mistake.  Most people are not interested in a business opportunity, especially a network marketing business.

Don’t believe me?  Just ask around.  I’d bet that less than five in every hundred people would join your business.  Yet, if you approached those same 100 people about your product first, I’d bet that at least 30 to 40 of those 100 people would be interested in learning more information.

Try it for 90 days.  Approach people and lead with the products and see if anyone calls it a pyramid or scam or gives you a hard time.  I think you will be pleasantly surprised.

Final Thoughts

There you have it folks.  These are the top 10 recruiting mistakes that most network marketers make.  I hope you will evaluate yourself in each area and look for ways you can improve.

MLM Company Shuts Down: What to Do if Your Network Marketing Company Closes

I had a great conversation with a successful network marketer and close friend yesterday (Herb).  He asked me if I could write a post about “what you should do if your MLM Company closes or shuts down” so I figured I would do him a favor and write a post about it.  I figured other people would be interested in this topic as well.

I should start out by telling you that most companies fail, inside and outside of the network marketing industry.  Building a successful, long-term company is a challenging task in any industry.  Just ask any entrepreneur!

Drive through any town in America and you will see what I am talking about.  Not only are there empty office buildings everywhere, but most of the businesses that are around today weren’t there five years ago.  And five years from now, most of the businesses around will be different businesses than that are there today.

Even in the network marketing industry, many companies don’t make it to the five year mark, let alone the ten or twenty year mark.  That is one of the biggest reasons I am a huge fan of working with established network marketing companies.  They’ve already gone through the growing process, worked through the kinks, and prepared themselves for long-term growth.

I’ve heard countless stories through the years of people who spent years building a successful downline in their network marketing company, only to have their company close its doors.  I can’t even imagine what that would feel like for someone who has poured their heart and soul into a company.  Talk about disappointment, anger, frustration and resentment.

I also have a lot of sympathy for the new or inexperienced distributor who joins a network marketing company only to have it close down.  This can leave a bad taste in their mouth as well, and make them vow to never do network marketing again.

The bottom line is that when a network marketing company shuts down, NO ONE WINS. Distributors lose commission checks.  Employees of the company lose their job.  And the owners of the company normally lose millions.  Our industry even takes a hit when this happens.  Talk about a lose-lose proposition.

So, is it possible to avoid working with a company that might shut down one day?  My immediate answer is NO.  There are so many things out of your control, and even out of the company’s control to say it could never happen.

That being said, I would tell you to pick your company wisely.  Do your homework before you join a network marketing company and don’t join a company that is less than five years old (just my thoughts).

Furthermore, what can you do if your MLM Company closes its doors for good?  As I see it, you really have three courses of action.  That’s what I’m going to talk about in the rest of this post.

# 1 Leave the Industry for Good

Your first course of action is to leave the network marketing industry for good.  Many people will choose this route, especially new distributors or people who didn’t earn a lot of money with their company.  Because of their inexperience, or lack of belief in the industry, they might think this is the norm in our industry.

After working with a company for any period of time, and it closes its doors, the distributor might have a bad taste for network marketing and vow never to do it again.

Before you choose this course of action, I want you to know something.  Most successful entrepreneurs (in any endeavor) failed several times before they became successful.  Success is seldom a straight line and very, very few people are successful in their first business venture.

Although you might be disappointed with your network marketing company and with the industry for letting you down, I don’t think this is a very good course of action for most people.

# 2 Spend Three to Six Months to Decompress

Another common reaction might be to do nothing right away.  Just take some time and decompress, collect your thoughts and evaluate your experience.  Spend some time thinking about why the company failed, and how you could prevent this from happening to you in the future.

I believe that every experience can be a learning experience, IF you take the time to reflect on the experience and look at it objectively.

Personally, I believe this is the best course of action for most people.  Spending 90 to 180 days to reflect on the experience is much better than just jumping ship and joining a new company right away, or leaving the industry for good (as I see it).

# 3 Find a New Company Right Away

The last course of action is simply to find a new company right away.  Maybe you were already promoting multiple companies.  Maybe you already had your eyes set on another company.  In either case, even if you’re thinking about joining a new company right away, I would at least spend a few weeks to analyze several companies.

Believe it or not, teaming up with a MLM Company is a MAJOR decision, even if you don’t think of it that way.  If you were going to buy a franchise or start a traditional business, I know you would do your due diligence and research before you got started.  Treat your next MLM Company the same way.  Pretend that you’re investing MILLIONS of dollars in it, even if it’s only a few hundred dollars to join.

Research the company.  Evaluate their product line.  Talk to the corporate team and some successful distributors.  Find out the good and bad about the company.  After you do these things, then you can make an informed decision.

Whatever you do, don’t make a rash, uneducated decision that will only lead to more disappointment.

What Would I Do If My MLM Company Closed Down?

If my MLM Company shut down today, this is what I would do:

  1. Take 30 to 90 days to decompress and collect my thoughts
  2. Research five to ten other network marketing companies that interest me
  3. Try out the products from each company as a customer first
  4. Do a thorough analysis of each company
  5. Talk to the corporate team and successful distributors from each company
  6. Pick the company that I believed offered the best products and opportunity
  7. Shop for a good sponsor
  8. Get started

I should also disclose that I am already SOLD on the industry and want to make a career out of it. Everyone’s situation is different, so don’t think you need to do what I would do. 

Additional Considerations

Here are some additional questions you could ask yourself to help you through your decision making process.

  • Do I really want to make a career out of my network marketing?
  • What do I like and dislike about the industry?
  • What type of product line would I like to represent?
  • What type of compensation plan would I like to participate in?
  • What did I like and dislike about my previous company?
  • Why did my company fail and how can I prevent it from happening in the future?

The Most Important Lesson

Always remember this.  Your network is your greatest asset.  No, I’m not talking about your downline either.  I’m talking about your list of names of people that know you, like you and trust you.  It could be people on your auto-responder list or in your address book.

I’ve found that successful network marketer are always focused on growing their network. They’re always expanding their network, not just to build their current business, but to ensure long-term success in this industry.  If you have a large network of people who know you, like you and trust you, and your company closes, it’s easy to rebuild. If you don’t have a large network, it will be a big challenge.  Never forget that.

Final Thoughts

I hope you are never in a situation where your MLM Company closes its doors.  Although it can be a great learning experience, it can also be very stressful and disappointing.  I truly believe that if you follow the advice mentioned in this post, you can make a good decision about what do if this happens to you.

What are your thoughts?  What do you tell people to do if their MLM Company shuts down? Has this ever happened to you?  Leave a comment below to share your thoughts.  I look forward to hearing from you.
