How to say no to promoting others is a sticky situation, and this video you’ll learn how to say no with honesty and class. Your word is extremely valuable and you probably don’t want to go around promoting anything or anyone you don’t believe in 100%.

You’ll hear why you should never recommend products or people out of loyalty, obligation, or guilt, and how you can destroy hard-earned trust and ruin your reputation with your audience if you promote for any reason other than genuinely believing in the product or individual.

Here is the script that Marie spoke of in her video:

“Thanks for thinking of me. It sounds like a fantastic program, and I’ll be cheering you on, but I’m not able to promote. I have a policy not to promote things unless I seek them out, because I’ve seen results first hand. Congratulations again and I wish you tremendous success with the program!”
