I know I won’t give up on trying to make me a better person

I have had a lot of failures in the network marketing profession. I’ve had a lot of successes too. I’ve made a lot of money and I’ve spent more than I made at times.

Every time I’ve failed it has been my fault for lack of personal growth.
Every time I’ve succeeded it’s been the fault of a lot of other marketers that I attracted because I’ve grown a bit too.

You can’t control what others do. All you can do is work on yourself, keep inviting others to look at your product or opportunity and never, never quit.

There are plenty of people around who will blame everyone and everything for their failures. Life’s successful people face their failures head on, fix themselves and go win.

I hope that Greg Arnold guy is a winner, I know I won’t give up on trying to make him a better person.

Problems are your friends…

Going through the process of solving problems always makes your business better than it was before you encountered the problem in the first place.  And it makes you a stronger entrepreneur…

Launch your attack only after you have won…

Launch your attack only after you have won the war. I know that many espouse the philosophy of “ready, fire, aim” and while you’ll have some success embracing that, empires have always been built on a different strategy.

Always keep in mind; What’s important to them. It isn’t about what you want. Zig Ziglar said; “You get what you want by helping others get what they want.”

In Network Marketing/MLM recruiting, it’s all about finding those who want to rather than need to. The higher quality person you prospect, the better your percentages are. Frankly, if you’re getting a bunch of turn downs for financial reasons, you’re probably prospecting at the wrong level.

It may be knowing what not to do…

After almost 40 years as a network marketer it isn’t that I know everything, it’s just that I’ve made a bunch more mistakes than most newer marketers. As a friend said, it isn’t always in knowing what to do as much as it may be knowing what not to do.

It’s about what’s important to them…

A lot of people, you are under that very mistaken opinion that things change. People are the same today as they were 25 years ago. They have hopes and dreams, they want the best for their families, they want to take a vacation once in a while.

Find out what’s important to them and you unlock the key to building a giant organization. Worry about being old or new school and you’ll waste a lot of time before you learn it’s about what’s important to them.

If you work you get paid, if you don’t, you won’t…

I have been reading a lot lately about who’s compensation plans are the best. Old school, new school, internet, face to face, blah, blah, blah…

Fact is all MLM comp plans are the same; If you work you get paid, if you don’t, you won’t.

Want to win, get a mentor…

I love how to books. They are the closest thing you can get to having the author as a mentor. But they aren’t the same as actually having a mentor. The reason they fall short is books can’t look at where you are and answer the question “What’s next?” Books also can’t do three-way calls with you, they can’t do 2 on 1’s with you, books can’t help you build your team.

A mentor can though. A mentor can also give you a kick in the butt when you make stupid mistakes, and you will. The fact is, you will always be the single biggest reason that you experience failure. We all get in our own way from time to time. A mentor can dramatically reduce your mistakes.

So, don’t try to go it alone, if you want to win, get a mentor.

Teams, companies, products are not always forever; the skills you develop and the relationships you protect are…

I’ve been fortunate enough to have built four MLM/Network Marketing teams that numbered in the thousands. Yes the income was great, the lifestyle terrific. Pattie and I have been on 14 cruises together, we’ve lived on St Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands. We’ve had nice cars and nice homes. We went from a back yard that was a 10 acre lake with the mountains as a backdrop to a wonderful view of the Caribbean each morning.

Our life style has been wonderful most of the time, even though we had to rebuild our business a couple times. The reason we were able to do it was; while teams, companies and products are not always forever, the skills you develop and the relationships you protect are…

Fail forward a lot…

New MLM/Network Marketing distributors ask me all the time what is the most important thing they could do in their first year as a marketer?

My response always seems to throw them for a loop; Fail fast, fail often, and learn from your valuable experiences.

As humans we hate failure, we vilify failures, yet we don’t learn any other way. Show me a man that faces his failures head on, embraces them and learns from the experience and I will show you someone who is destined to succeed in a very big way.

Want to be a highly successful Network Marketer? Start failing! I know that you’re afraid. I know that the NO’s kill you inside. But they get easier to handle as you experience more of them. If you can bring yourself to collect more NO’s then anyone you know, I promise, you’ll be more successful then anyone you know.

If you haven’t done this yet in you MLM career, it’s time to go back to day one and fail fast, fail often, and learn from your valuable experiences.
