I made my list. I called my family and friends. I had my in-home meetings. I read all the books, listened to the CDs. Eventually I came to a conclusion. The number of people that I needed to contact in order to get one person fully committed to my venture was MUCH larger than I anticipated. I eventually learned how to build online and I learned to build a team before joining an opportunity. I will never return to the old way of building a business.
