Booster, Badge Status and VP

My dear Balkans, swim in the same water with you. I'd ask only one question. What, in that case the value of an LP.

I agree with Sanja. Although I am relatively new in this business, I know that in every job changes are sometimes necessary and not always welcome and readily accepted. What is my first as a novice striking and I was extra motivation were badges status of my sponsors and other members of the upline team. They showed me that the team is strong, that people are promoted to the job and to work. That was an additional motivation to their dedication and hard work and I become like them. By abolishing the badges last month's status we are all the same as starting the first of every month with 0 Versa Points. In my opinion the new affiliates who join one wonders if the reason that these people are working here for months to have the same level of status as well as I that I just started. It can be very demotivating for someone new, who has just begun. With a wealth of new information that welcome new members, we are aware that some people do not like studying and reading, and this is a job that requires just that, and I think that those who decide to start working and will ask whether it makes sense, and whether there's success. We know that there are, but they do not know. People like to see the characteristics of success to themselves courage and to our badge of status and show. Here we come to the other things proposed by Sanja and that the SOQ. Price for a minimum of 1,500 points Versa large number of people is too high. The reason is that the vast majority coming from economically developed countries and those that amount can not be set aside. I know this is a business and I am aware that the business should invest. But I hope that there might be a possibility that the discount on the actual price increase slightly and that for 1500 to be lower, as Sanja proposes $ 25. Those who can buy the 2 packages, and those who are just starting and do not have so many possibilities, it would still have the opportunity to reach and maintain the status of EA minimum. This is my thinking and I think it is a good proposal, because such initial package NMP vast majority of new members is not taken out of caution, do not know anything yet about the job and the deadline for purchase is just the first 10 days. That is why the possibility that for some more dollars SOq with 1500VP sounds motivating and brings higher consumption. Have a nice day and a lot of business success, Mirjana

I agree with Sanja! Great post! $36 i a lot of money from someone from my country too. If Booster is a bit cheaper more people would decide to invest in their business and become TL. Gery said that there will more be changes soon , I hope they will have impact on easier start for new members so they stay in SFI , and in that way there will be less inactive members. I think we would all like that. Best regards!
