Before I get started...I want to make it very clear that it is not my intention in any way to offend any individual or disparage any particular company. I'll be blunt in my personal opinion and observations. However, I would really like to see each of you do an honest, open, heart wrenching examination of your soul in relation to a phenomenon I call "Jumping Frog Disease".
My good friend Frank Garon, publisher of a major online newsletter, calls people with this habit online "internet sheep". The symptoms are jumping from one opportunity to another looking for next Big Thing. Some describe it as an attitude that grass is always greener someplace else. And to be fair, this phenomenon is not sole domain of Network Marketing....or even Internet Opportunities. It's also common in "real" world of brick and mortar business.
This disease can actually take many forms. And not all are bad. Someone may be legitimatelly unhappy and looking for something better than where they are. Their move is well planned, logical, and with good reason. Hopefully these folks will learn from their experience and be able to evaluate their next opportunity better than they did their last.
The primary reasons I see as destructive are those which exhibit either a "love 'em & leave 'em" mentality....or a reactive response to emotional frenzy generated by a new "big thing".
Examples of later can be seen in recent months to "big things" like cookies, super water, streaming music, cure all patches, financial education, stock games, video email, greeting cards, VoIP phones, latest juice, and like (not naming names). And I'm not passing judgement on these opportunities per say...rather pointing out a lemming like stampede of many from seemingly good "homes" to "next big thing". For some folks it was done with thought and forsight. For many others it was purely an emotional "me too" reaction...and not first (or last) time they've done that.
Examples of first "destructive" reason are those who build and leave...often taking many others with them (these people are sometimes called mercenaries). Perhaps they were bored. Or perhaps they saw chance for another big score....another notch on their belt so to speak. Only they really know for sure...all assumptions aside. But effect on those left behind is one of being abandoned. Especially when those who left were counted on and touted as leaders. [ some leadership ] And it can be particularly devestating on those newbies who depended on those individuals for their "example".
My personal take is that if you do your homework you should be able find a home you can stay in for a long time. Now things do happen...and when they do by all means move on. There are legitimate reasons to do so then. I'm proof of that....I started my journey with ACN (way back in day LOL).
