Having been involved with team building and network marketing for some time, I have come to adopt following as my operating credo..."if you have desire and are willing to put in effort, I'll pull you along so you can go faster down road to success, but if you don't want move on your own, I'm not going to waste my time trying to push you forward".
Its like working with a length of chain...pulling it along works fine, but trying it push it forward only results in a pile of frustration.
You need to be able to distinguish between people that have a legitimate interest in developing a home based business and those lost souls that feel that they have just joined another chat group and only want to engage in an endless "debate" about virtues of whatever business you are promoting, but never actually had any intention of establishing a business...you will have to develop your own method of reading people like this (its mainly a sense of feel...sort of a belly button thing).
You can help someone reach for success...but you can't reasonably expect to make them want to be successful. Its just another variation of that very old and tired cliche...that "you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink".
Another way of looking at it is if you are trying to move people forward, you pull them from in front (a leadership position), but if you have to push them it will be from behind (not a position of leadership).
