Tag Archives: Network Marketing Business
Many people as they get older realize that they aren’t going to have enough money to retire. After working for 40 years or more, looking forward to the day when they won’t have to anymore, they will have to keep some form of job or live a severely restricted lifestyle. They will have to put all of their plans for traveling and enjoying their golden years on the shelf, maybe permanently.
Some of my friends on Facebook post pictures like this every Monday, that is those of my friends who aren’t already involved in network marketing.
Do you dread Mondays? Do you spend all weekend wishing it was Saturday, then all week looking forward to Friday? It’s really a lousy way to live, isn’t it? Never enjoying today?
That’s one of the many things that I freed myself from when I quit my job to work on my network marketing business full-time.
It takes focus to achieve anything great.
Focus is the ability to keep yourself on one task or thought for an extended period of time. As John Maxwell said in his video on focus, the ability to focus on one thing long enough is what it take to turn a thing into a big thing.
This is all absolutely true for building a network marketing business.
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.
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.
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.
