When you post comments on your face book page or you blog, one cardinal rule is to not use personal information or situations, UNLESS it is a positive experience. It does your image no good to complain about the last time your business obligations made you miss something you wanted to do or got in the way of a family happening. We all make sacrifices for our business but making the point with the negative is not a good choice. If you want to convey the idea that we do have to make time and sometimes sacrifice something now for the advantages and rewards of a successful business, you need to keep it on the positive side.
Judy Narum, from Diamond Dream Builders has this to say about posting personal information... "Never EVER post on your network marketing blog or face book forum about personal issues unless they relate to your business in a positive manner. For example, posting that you were able to attend your daughters baseball game today because of the flexibility of your job is fine. Posting that your wife/husband is leaving you because you're a penniless hack is NOT. Watch what you say on line, it's there forever."
For example, your son or daughter had a baseball game or played in a concert and you missed it because you had a meeting that took you away at that time... instead of saying how disappointed your kids were that you missed something because you are taking your business seriously, you could say how proud you are of the kids for supporting you in your new business, and how they are learning valuable lessons as you gain both monetary and personal growth while building your business. You want to show a positive attitude and really share the best of what you are learning as you grow your business.
We all have our doubts and there is a place to discuss them but not when you are talking to potential customers or partners. Hopefully you have a mastermind group that you can discuss any problems you are having and get advice from those that have been there. If you are looking for a forum, check out Mentoring for Free. They have free training calls and a great forum on Saturdays nites where you can get questions answered without being pitched.
It is good for people to know some personal information about you, it helps them to identify with you. Network marketing is a relationship business, and while you don't have to paint an unrealistic picture, you do want to show how you are growing and changing, and profiting personally as well as financially from your involvement in this great business model.
