You never know when and where you’re going to find your next star.

I was at the gas station the other day and there was a young man there who was selling waterless spray-on car cleaner and polish. He was eager to show off the product for me, but to be honest, I was a little skeptical at first of letting him spray something on my brand new Bentley GTC.

But he was convincing, and I let him. And boy did the car shine.

I ended up buying some of that polish, and we got to talking. I told him he was very personable and convincing and I figured that if he’s at a gas station soliciting people to sell a product, and got me to buy it, then he may have what it takes to get involved in my business. I started talking to him about green energy and how by doing essentially the same thing he was doing at that gas station, he could not only make recession proof residual income, but also have a very positive impact on the world.

He asked me what he needed to do to get a car like this. I then invited him to my office and told him that I had to show him what I was doing and that if he was serious about changing his life, sooner or later he’d wind up with a car like mine of his own. Needless to say, he showed up at my office the next day eager to learn more and begin introducing his family and friends to Viridian.

A lot of times, you introduce people to the business and they say they’re really excited about it, but when it comes down to it, they don’t show up or follow through. When you find someone who does, that’s half the battle in this business.

My goal now is to make this kid the next Viridian star. I’m committed to helping him make money. Most people aren’t there yet but they’re on their way. The one’s that make it are the ones that stay focused and are committed. You just have to believe in what you’re doing. You have to believe in your company. But most importantly, you have to believe in yourself.
