Are You a Mad March Hare?
A Seasonal Condition
Obviously, real mental health issues are no laughing matter. As a coma survivor, I know how tough it can be when your brain’s genuinely on the fritz, but there’s a non-medical form of insanity that I witness every spring with people who leap into the home business niche.
- The scent of spring air in your nostrils
- The sense of possibility, newness, and wonder
- The mad leap into an MLM. Any MLM. Is it shiny? Is there a slogan? Do you get a free bag, scarf, piece of paper, banner? Woohoo!!! *LEAP*
- The hangover. The regret. The garage full of stuff.
- The scent of spring air …
- The sense of possibility …
- The mad LEAP into an MLM. ANY MLM. *Boing!* *Boing!* *Boing!*
For some, this is an heredity illness. They grew up watching a parent with Mad March Hare Syndrome. The only hope for many of them is to unplug their broadband, and wait until the season passes. For those who’ve only experienced one or two boats of the illness, there is great hope of a complete cure. Simply research the company before you join. That’s it:
- Check out the founders. What are their credentials? Do people seem to like them? Anything dodgy in their past of which you should be aware? Do they have a long term vision?
- Check out the products. Are they good? Do they appeal to you? Can you see genuine value in them? Would you feel guilty about selling them to your grandmother?
- If the profit side of things were taken out of the equation, can you see value in the business that would also benefit you? This is important because you need to know that you would stick around if you were struck by a bad cold in the first few days and missed out on a bonus. If it took a while to make a profit, is there still good training, a great atmosphere, etc?
