Some years ago, my now 12-year-old daughter asked me to show her how to tie shoes. So we sat on the stairs and I demonstrated the looping process a few times. It wasn’t long before she got the hang of it.
Afterwards, as one who does a lot of writing, I thought how much harder it would be to tell a child how to do that instead of showing it:
True, the new Market Partner probably doesn’t realize you are “modeling” the right behaviors (and you might not either!). But once they’ve joined your team, they will pay you a big compliment by asking for your help. When they ask, “how do I host a MONAT meeting,” or “how do I share samples,” you have a ready response: “Remember how I did it? It’s easy—I’ll show you.”
In that sense, you are always “on stage”—you are always showing someone how it’s done. This shouldn’t worry you. It’s not about perfection; it’s about doing the best you can. On an even higher level, showing (and sharing) your passion for MONAT is the most fundamental aspect of attracting others to you. When you demonstrate a genuine love for our products and opportunity, you’re showing what is good and great about MONAT. Show it!
