Of course, the title to this post was borrowed by the old Robert Frost poem, “Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening.” The title popped into my head the other night, when it was snowing in New York, and I had a coaching client. One of the things that attracted me to coaching was one of the same things that attracted me to network marketing. “You can run your business in your underwear.” Now, when you think about it, it’s probably not the most glamorous image you can think of, unless it involves a supermodel doing business in their underwear. And really, the underwear is not the point. It’s the feeling of freedom. I love the fact that I can create a profound difference for people who don’t have to know how, or even if, I’m dressed; whether I’m having a bad hair day; or anything else that could never happen in a face-to-face session. Still, there I was, in my long underwear, taking a coaching call. Technically I wasn’t “by woods,” unless you want to consider Riverside Park, some three blocks away. Well, maybe old Mr. Frost never experienced Manhattan (“… and blocks to go before I sleep…”).
