I work with a company, Melaleuca, that says it is "customer oriented." In fact, it is.
I've listened to audios presented by successful folks in this company and they all stress how the most important success ingredient is to love and use and your products. They don't mean you must love each and every product. But you must love enough of them to be able to sincerely recommend the products you do use and love.
I've heard that sentiment before but until recently I never fully believed that statement. That's the problem. I was stubborn. I would not accept the wisdom of successful people.
And what can be more obvious? If you join a company simply to make money, what's to stop you from quitting when you hit those inevitable bumps on the business road? It's like getting married and poo-pooing the marriage vows from the get-go.

I want to recruit you to be my customer
