Doug describes how the "Two-Minute Story" works over time.

Diamond Affiliate Doug & Kathy Karnuth sent me an email describing their experience with one of their prospects. Here is an excerpt:

* * * * * * * * * * * * * *

A couple of months ago a person downloaded the ebook, and we had a brief conversation about the book.

She was very happy with her company, and was only looking for a system to build her business, so I suggested that she plug into the free training we offer.

I kept in regular communication and sent out emails announcing weekly calls that she was invited to participate in. She did get on a few of the calls every so often, But, one day she emailed me and said I would like to hear your "Two-minute Story".

You see, in my signature file for every email I put:

PS. Ask me about my "Two-Minute Story"

After receiving numerous emails with this PS, she just had to hear it, curiosity got to her. So I called her and told the story and nothing happened, good or bad. You see when she downloaded the ebook it was not her day, when I told her the story it was not her day either, but about a week ago it was and she joined the Vitamark team.

This is a really cool example of "today is not their day, but maybe tommorrow will be". That really shows the importance of telling the story, and waiting for it to be their time, not ours.

How encouraging that story is. It was a catch 21 if you will! It was just a matter of time before the tables would turn in the right direction. So cool!
