There are a lot of different personalities in any given home based business. In fact I’ve noticed that most of them can be classified as one of the 7 dwarfs… you know…. Doc, Dopey, Sneezy, Sleepy, Bashful, Happy and Grumpy. So which one are you? Well listen up because I’m about to break it down for you. Who knows you might recognize some of your friends in the business as well.
Doc – Doc is the head honcho. He’s the man. He’s in charge and not necessarily because he put himself there but because he just belongs in that leadership role. A Doc would be anyone who demands attention. He knows how to entertain and get the respect of the masses.
Dopey – So this might go without saying but you know that person who just doesn’t get it. They are… well… dopey. They mean well but they just aren’t the brightest crayon in the box.
Sneezy – The Sneezies are the people who always have an excuse. They couldn’t come to the meeting because the dog was sick or their car broke down. They haven’t made very much money yet because they don’t have many friends to market to or their town just isn’t a good market. A sneezy will talk a good game but at the end of the day always come up with excuse after excuse and they’ll never really make it.
Sleepy – Have you ever been to a meeting and seen someone looking bored as all get out? That’s a Sleepy. They’re there but not really there. They’ve probably been in the business for years and they’ll never quit but they’ll never take it up a notch and really go after it either. Sleepy’s pretty much just take up space. They might wake up from time to time but they just keep drifting off…
Bashful – A Bashful is someone who is terrified of talking to prospects. You don’t have to be the most confident speaker in the world to have success working from home but if you’re scared to death of people that’s not going to work either. All a bashful needs to do is get some confidence and practice is they want to get better because they usually have the drive to succeed they’re just too…um… bashful.
Happy – Happy is… HAPPY! He’s happy to be there, he’s happy to be in the business, he’s happy to meet you. He’s just happy! There’s nothing wrong with that at all. In fact Happy’s can do really well in a home based business as long as they can buckle down and actually get some work done.
And finally Grumpy – No need for a big explanation here, we all have a few grump’s in our lives. Just ignore them and move on.
