I have five kids. The youngest is in the 7th grade, one is in the 10th grade and three are in college. While they are all old enough to read for themselves now, there was a time where they loved to be read to.

One of the books that most kids love to look thru are among the famous “Where’s Waldo?” collection. Each page has a collection of characters painted into a scene. Waldo creator Martin Handford assures us that Waldo can be found on each page. You just have to be persistent in your search.

I was thinking about this concept the other day, and I began to realize that ACN is a lot like the Waldo concept. When we launch a new rep and ask them to put together their list of a hundred contacts, there are Team Coordinators and RVPs (Waldos) on every page. We just have to be persistent in our search.

The next time you go thru a bookstore, take a minute to flip thru a Waldo book. You’ll see that on the first few pages, Waldo may be relatively easy to find. As you advance thru the book however, Waldo becomes increasingly more difficult to find. He’s there alright. You just have to be persistent and thorough.

Anaheim is tomorrow. Off to pick up my name badge in a minute.
