When building your home business, remember the old saying, “if you’re going to find a prince, you may have to kiss a lot of frogs.”

You’re going to talk to a lot of people over the course of building your Retire in 5 home business. Some will want to join you in your business, some will become customers and most will not be interested in doing either.

That’s the reality.

Most people will not want to build a home business of their own.

Most people will not want to buy your product.

Most people will say “no”.

The thing to understand is that when they tell you “no”, they are doing you a favor.

Telling you “no” is doing you a favor.

The thing we most need from the people we talk with about our home business is a decison.

Whether that decision is a yes or a no, isn’t the important thing. The decison itself is.

Running around chasing after “I’ll think about it” people will kill your soul. You will waste time and burn out on the maybes.

So don’t worry about whether or not someone says yes or no. Rejoice over either one.

So what about the maybes?

I’ve found that most people that are maybes are really nos that don’t want to tell you. Usually if you give them permission to say no, they’ll fell relieved and tell you . Just say something to the effect of, “I know you’ve told me you want to think about it, and that’s cool. But I want you to know that I mean it when I tell you it’s OK to tell me no. If this isn’t the right thing for you, I don’t want to be a pain and keep bringing it up.”

This will usually get you a grateful no, or sometimes they’ll tell you the thing they’re uncertain about and you can continue a conversation from there.


Be grateful for the nos and take the time you just saved and go talk with someone else.

After a lifetime of some successes, more near misses and even more outright failures, I find I've gained some skills and some wisdom along the way. I'm in the continuing process of developing more of the former and hopefully a little of the latter as well. I've reached a point where my primary interest is to develop an income that can support what I call a Location Optional lifestyle. I want to live where I want, how I want and when I want. A little narcissistic, I know, but there is only so much time in life and there are still many places from where I have not seen the sun rise. Fortunately, I've been blessed with a wife who feels the same way.
