I am a network marketer, so today I want to talk about what I like about network marketing and the company that I am with.
I graduated from massage school six and a half years ago and through that training I had become very interested in wellness. It was as if a whole new world had been opened up for me. My Anatomy and Physiology instructor recommended Kevin Trudeau’s book Natural Cures “They” Don’t Want You to Know About. I don’t actually recommend the book because I found it to be a very difficult book to read, but there was one thing in the book that piqued my interested. Kevin Trudeau said that everyone should be sleeping on a magnetic mattress pad. I asked another massage therapist I knew about this and he introduced me to a network marketing company he had just joined.
I listened to a small piece of The Strangest Secret by Earl Nightingale on the way to a meeting a couple days ago. In this particular section he was talking about goals and comparing them to the destination of a ship on the ocean.
When a ship leaves a port it has to have a destination and a captain at the tiller if it is to have any chance of arriving at any meaningful place.
Earn Nightingale sayes that a ship without a destination is likely to run aground as a derelict on a deserted beach, if it ever even made it out of the port in the first place.
Here is a short video of Seth Godin on the value of blogging. Check it out.
I hadn’t thought about it like this before, but I believe he is right. I have changed a lot since I started blogging three or so years ago (not on this site).
Back then I didn’t know much about blogging other than that it was a good way to generate traffic to my website for free. I didn’t know how to write and I really didn’t expect a lot of people to read what I wrote. Actually, I blogged mostly to generate links to my product content so that I would rank better with the search engine. I didn’t care that nobody read my content.
Expectation was John Maxwell’s word of the day about a week ago. He shared a great story, so go see the short video.
Like the young guy in the story, are you passing on opportunities that are too big for your frying pan? Are your expectations too small?
Life is about having huge expectations and living life to the fullest. We are meant to live in abundance. Regardless of what the news and the people around us are programming us to believe, we are not meant to be broke and sick. We are supposed to be more wealthy and healthy than we can believe.
I never really understood the difference between prospecting and recruiting as they related to network marketing. Do you know the difference?
I was listening to a recording of one of my upline leaders in my network marketing company and he explained it very clearly.
Prospecting is about talking to people to find out about them. You are listening for any indications that they may have a need that you can satisfy.
Recruiting is the process of taking that potential interest and creating the belief that you and your business opportunity or product can satisfy that need.
