Sunday 19th May 2013: Day 1, Meeting 1

I got off to a gentle start today. I met with David. David is a tenant in one of my flats. He is young, ambitious, smart, and he keeps the flat looking immaculate! A perfect tenant.

The purpose of the meeting was 2-fold. Firstly, David wanted to review our tenancy agreement. He would like to commit to staying at the flat for a further 12 months, in exchange for a reduction in the rent. I was happy with that. I always think a good tenant is worth their weight in gold. The previous tenant in this flat was a nightmare, I had to go to court to get them evicted, incurring court fees, and months of lost rent. David is a breath of fresh air.

Secondly, and this was the part relating to the 30 Day Challenge, I asked David to take a look at my Kleeneze Business Opportunity.

I hadn’t expected him to be interested, as he seems very focussed on his career at the moment, but I thought he might know someone who might be interested.

To my surprise he said he would like to look at the info for himself. He was familiar with Network Marketing, as a friend had taken him to a meeting for another opportunity recently. So he said he would certainly take a look at the information. I left a couple of business cards with him to pass on to friends.

Will this lead to a new team member? I don’t know, but you never know. This is a numbers game, and the more people you show the opportunity to, the more people will join.

Lessons Learnt? Don’t prejudge anyone. Speak to everyone about your business. You never know who might be interested.
