When Our Team Member Almost Commits
Team member: “I will do ANYTHING to be successful in this business.”
Sponsor: “Great. Let’s set some appointments for Monday night to talk to.”
Team member: “Uh, Mondays are not good. That is when I watch Monday Night Football. Gives me something to talk about at work the next day.”
Sponsor: “Okay, what about Tuesday night?”
Team member: “I make dinner for the family then and that takes a while. Plus, traffic is bad mid-week and I get home late.”
Sponsor: “What about Wednesday?”
Team member: “That is sports night for my kids. I watch their games whenever I can.”

Sponsor: *facepalms* “Let’s try to talk to people on Friday night. How does that sound to you?”
Team member: “Fridays I unwind from a stressful day at work. Plus, I need to rest up for the weekend. That is my only time off from this stressful job.”

Team member: “I just told you that weekends are my rest time.”
