I joined John Maxwell’s A Minute with Maxwell a couple days ago to get his “word of the day” emails.
Yesterday’s word was discomfort.
John Maxwell says that you “need to learn to be comfortable being uncomfortable.”
Jim Rohn used to say “You need to do the uncomfortable until it becomes comfortable.”
We all know what our comfort zone is and we like to stay there. It’s safe in our comfort zone.
We don’t grow when we stay in our comfort zone though, especially when it comes to our network marketing business. For most of us, if we stayed in our comfort zone then we probably wouldn’t have even joined a network marketing company.
“Some will, some won’t, so what – next!”
John Kalench said this about prospecting people into your network marketing business in Being the Best You Can Be In MLM.
This advice applies to a lot of things. I experienced it recently myself. I went to an event put on by the leaders in my network marketing company a few weeks ago. Several people found out that I am building my business online and were curious. They wanted my info so that they could contact me when we all returned back home.
None of them have.
Don’t be a Lone Ranger, but you have to be different and stand out.
I spent a few days in Orlando, FL at a big network marketing event put on by the field leaders with my network marketing company. All of the big wigs were there, both from the field, and the top people from corporate too.
It was very cool.
The first night of the vent involved one or two Diamonds and Royal Diamonds sitting at tables and the rest of us moving from table to table, kind of like speed-dating, to ask them any questions that we have.
I already wrote about why network marketing is better than a regular job here. Now I’m going to talk about why network marketing is better than a lot of other businesses you could get into.
What Are You Going to Sell?
A business exists to make money. Sure, you may have higher goals for your business, but if there isn’t any money flowing into the business, it will eventually fail. To make money, you have to have either a product, a service, or both.
I am at a network marketing event put on by the leaders in my network marketing company and I will share some of the stuff I am learning here and my business opportunity blog.
What I want to share today is actually something that some new friends and I were discussing last night in the hotel. We were talking about how to build our businesses and make money. I like building volume through retail sales while they are focused on recruiting people. We couldn’t come to an agreement.
I am no longer affiliated with Empower Network.
Traditionally, we are raised believing that we have to finish school and go to college to get a good education so that we can then get a good job and toil away the rest of our lives working for someone else.
It’s slavery with a paycheck.
Here are some reasons why building a network marketing business is much better than having a job.
Do you know what a funded proposal is?
It is a low cost item, a product or service, that sits at the top of your marketing funnel to get new prospects. It is called a funded proposal because it can generate enough income to cover the cost of your prospecting. It pays for itself.
I was watching a video training from some internet marketing trainers earlier today and I want to share something they taught.
If you want to sell, you have to buy.
I’m not talking about buying the business kit or whatever you have to buy to get into your network marketing opportunity. I’m talking about the product that you sell, and there are many reasons why.
You can’t walk your customers through the sales process if you haven’t gone through it yourself.
