"Some Will, Some Won't, So What!" So What?

I really like this post by Michael Oliver of Natural Selling. Of course, maybe I just like it because I agree with what Michael has to say. But nontheless, it's definitely worth a look.

Personally, that phrase just reminds me too much of outdated salesmen who only look at customers as numbers and at sales as a numbers game.

"Some Will, Some Won't, So What!" So What?:

Do you use the expression “Some will, some won’t, so what!”?

If you do, as you say the words, how do you intuitively feel? What does your "gut" say to you?

Do you feel comfortable because it’s really your truth, or do you have a feeling of discomfort that you’ve adopted someone else’s truth or industry language that doesn’t resonate with you?

Personally I’ve never cared for the expression. For me it smacks too much of ego, bravado and the negative interpretation of - “posturing”.

No matter how it’s said… (try saying it with love and then say it while pounding your chest like Neanderthal man!) … it just doesn’t feel aligned with the rhythm of life. Saying “So what” implies a lack of caring and I think that most of us do care.


  1. I agree. Sometimes I hear people in my company, which is Arbonne, say this. But one of the reasons I'm building a business with Arbonne is b/c I believe the pure, safe, and beneficial products, as well as the business opportunity, can genuinely help people. To turn around and say, "so what..." seems counterproductive to that end, ya know?

    Anyway, I understand the reason for using this phrase is to aid in detachment from activity outcome and focus on the fact that you are in activity, itself. But, like you, it does not resonate with me (and I like that choice of wording).

  2. Thanks for the comments Jeffrey. And I agree that it can be counterprodictive as well.

    I'm glad that Michael took the time to post on such a topic since it's one of those things people have heard so often (or have had pounded into their heads by certain upline or "experts" so often) that they've just kinda blindly accepted it without actually dissecting it and concluding whether or not it's really a true, productive and positive stance to take.

    Many times, just accepting these such things blindly, without testing for their validity and productiveness simply does more harm to your business than it does good, especially in the long-run.

    Anyway, thanks for stopping by. And BTW, nice blogs you have there!
