Glossary Of Terms & Words To Know
The Key - Make Sure You Are Understood
It is important to be able to define your words and concepts to someone that has little or no experience with them.  This is why we included a glossary of terms in the Warehouse.  The vast majority of people in America and elsewhere on the planet have never been involved in networking or Wealth Building.  The terms you use will be new to them. 
Therefore, it will help you immensely if you are able to clearly define and explain what you mean in a language an individual can relate to and understand.  Building a successful business with others is as much an educational process as it is a moneymaking venture.  As leader, you need to be adept at both. 
When someone in your organization doesn't understand a word, phrase, concept or terminology, that person is coming to you.  Therefore, you need to have as much knowledge as possible about your offering, as well as the industry in which you are building your secondary income streams.  The following Glossary of Terms are words and concepts as defined by IMG.Ws.  The Glossary is updated as often as necessary.
