Not sure I follow this logic, but...
What they DIDN'T KNOW when they called many of us is that we're not worried. Even when they tried their best and used their boldest fear mongering techniques... we didn't buldge. It's not that we're all eternal optimists. It is that we understand that franchising is a GOOD THING... a real good thing. We see a bigger picture, BEYOND what the fear mongers see. Or do we? Maybe, it's because THEY ALSO SEE what a smart move YTB would be making to implement a franchise model into the existing framework. Maybe that's why they're trying to make a pre-emptive move against YTB RTAs and REPS before we are even farther out of reach. I don't know. It is an interesting thought though. What I do know is that YTB is on the cusp of something very exciting and it could be the BEST THING that has EVER happened before.
And of course, regardless of all else..recruit recruit recruit!
So....forget about the YTB "Franchise" Scare Tactics. Better yet, IF YOU ARE NOT IN YTB, this is a GREAT TIME to consider JOINING.
YTB IS ON ITS WAY TO BECOMING A BILLION DOLLAR COMPANY! Our founders, Coach J. Lloyd Tomer, Scott Tomer and J.Kim Sorensen have said that YTB will be the largest travel company in the world. We're on our way to making this a reality. So the fear mongering...we're not buying it, and believe it or not, many if not most of us ARE NOT coming to join your "other travel MLM" company.
Funny, but when the TTAs say we are not "scared" of YTB, they all say we really are. And now it seems that YTB is saying that they are not scared of the "other MLM" but by their logic...they must be!
If I were an RTA, I would be VERY concerned. The move to a franchise is only going to deplete your wallet some more. Remember, the wallet--the piece of leather with an exit only when it comes to YTB?
