Today I had an interesting conversation with a handsome, intelligent and charismatic French Canadian who is in his own words happily married. It was a business call about career paths. When we began to discuss my decision to pursue my career as a Public Speaker, Author and Life Coach and not in Sales and Marketing he peppered me with questions. You see Stephane Page the man with the plan from Canada bread and butter is multi level marketing while assisting others grasp and understand the concept of Leverage and (self) Value.
Initially I do not believe he could properly grasp my decision to write and speak on issues regarding the fastest growing number of population in the USA. To 99.9% of individuals and companies that base their foundation on sales and marketing the overall thought is to focus on Baby Boomers. Which has been a true and tried methodology for success. Yet for me I live as a consumer and not as an observer and I see what PHD Professors from Harvard Business School cannot see from their Ivy-league colored window.
What I see is alarming, prevalent but in truth not surprising given the state of our culture. What is it that I see you ask? Why of course I see single men and women of all socioeconomic status as the fastest growing number of Americans.
My new business acquaintance Stephane Page of MLM Marketing http://stephanepage.com/ is a hardworking entrepreneur who initially was shocked to hear it was those of us who carried the Status and the Stigma of Single according to the last US census count who are the largest group of Americans at 50.3% and not the BABY BOOMERS of yesteryear.
This is not to say that Baby Boomers are not the go-to market for advertisers however think about it as a company big or small do you want to be ahead of the trend or do you want to be the trend?
Now I want to close with saying thank you to Stephane Page of Canada because as we finished our phone call he gave me the ultimate compliment in his lovely QUEBEC QUA accent. Which is why I started this particular story. He stated, “I can’t wait to read your book on living single and I am happily married. You are obviously talented and passionate about what you do and how you affect other people lives.”
Now for those of you unhappy in your work, lagging in your career goals or who depend on new markets and leads take a moment or two and reinvest in your business as well as your self value log on www.stephanepage.com and tell him SharenSierra sent you.
