    Hi Jan,

    What I noticed with some of the people who are in the network marketing industry is that they keep jumping from one deal to the next, to the next. What it boils down to is focus. You focus on one, don’t allow the next deal allow you to distract you from what you’re currently working on. Thanks for the great post!
