How I Heard Of Tom Big Al
I remember back in 2007 was the very first time I learned about Tom Big Al. I was following a conference call for my primary company in which he was the featured guest. My upline had encouraged me to tune in and listen so I did. I recall hearing him for the first time and I was tuned in for that ENTIRE hour! He was funny, I mean REALLY funny. And I think that’s one of the reasons why I paid more attention to him. He was talking about icebreakers. Now if you don’t know what icebreakers are, let me explain.
Icebreakers are phrases that you can use to simply, break-the-ice. What I mean is when you’re trying to talk to a prospect and you don’t know exactly what to say, there’s some phrases which you can use that will get them to ask for more details. I’ll share with you a couple:
- “Are you married to your job, or are you open-minded?”
- “Hey (prospect’s name), I just found out how you can fire your boss and enjoy your Monday mornings!”
Both of these sentences create curiosity to the prospect. They’ll want to know HOW or what you’re talking about. But anyways, that night he was talking about icebreakers and I make a list of a whole bunch of them on a sheet of paper (I would everything I learned but I don’t know where that paper is, lol). So that’s how I first heard about Tom Big Al. Ever since then, I’ve been a follower and learned a lot from him.
Who is Tom Big Al?
So who’s Tom Big Al? Tom Schreiter (best known as “Big Al” or “Tom Big Al”), is really a MLM legend. He’s been around the block since back in 1972, when network marketing was really old-school. He got involved in the industry looking for a way to make an additional part-time income. His wife was pregnant at the time and his regular salary was just insufficient. Looking around in the newspaper, he answered an ad that read: “Part-Time Business, Small Investment”.
So he and his wife attended this 3 hour long opportunity meeting, where they met a lot of weird people there. After the three hours, they looked at each other and said: “Let’s escape from here. The armed guards are gone from the door.”
So as they’re sneaking out the back door, the person who ran the ad recognized them because they were the only guests. He said: “Aren’t you the people who answered the ad?” Tom Big Al says: “Yes, but it appears like it’s not for us. We are not interested and we are much too busy.” What happened next was simply MAGICAL (I want you to pay attention). The man looked at Tom Big Al and told him this:
“Tom, when you join our business here’s what happens. Six months from now you walk into your boss’ office. You sit down in the chair, you put your feet up on his desk and also leave little scuff marks with your heels.
“You put both your hands behind your head and you calmly tell the boss that you simply can’t fit him in your schedule any longer. You’ve enjoyed working there, but if they have any problem after you leave they can call you any Tuesday morning at 11 o’clock at your normal consulting rate.
“Then you get up from the boss’ office, go out to the main office desk, take your personal belongings, wave good-bye to all your fellow workers who said it couldn’t be done, hop inside your brand-new bonus car, drive down to the drive-in teller window, deposit this month’s bonus check, and say to the bank teller: “‘Oh, I don’t know. Put this bonus check in savings or checking. It truly doesn’t matter. I receive these checks each and every month.” And then you drive home and relax, having a nice glass of your favorite beverage.”
