I have to be very truthful with you; I have been in and out of Network Marketing or MLM for over 20 years now. I’m embarrassed to admit this, but there it is. I saw Network Marketing as a way to make extra money just after I got married, so I went out and I sold clothes. It was actually a great company and I did make some money, but I was also pregnant and I found lugging all the samples around tiresome. After my son was born I seemed to be even more tired. Then we moved to another country for my husband’s work, and the company I had been working with did not have a presence. So, I had to drop out of that business. Dropping out of that business didn’t really constitute a big issue. While I loved the products and the compensation plan, I did not recruit a soul.
In our new country, I got involved with a terrific jewelry company. I made extra money and it got me out of the house and talking to adults. By now I had two kids, but lugging a load of jewelry to parties was SO much easier than a giant bag of clothes. Along about that time, we moved back to our home country and I was really disappointed that they did not have a big presence. To top it off, the jewelry company was sold. So … goodbye jewelry company. Once again, the separation wasn’t too great as I had not recruited a soul.
After being home for a while, I came across a Health and Wellness company whose products I liked and I got involved again. It is a great company and it is still in business today, but I am no longer a part of it. I discovered that while the products were terrific and the compensation plan adequate, I just didn’t have the passion to represent them. I eventually lost interest and left. Once again, I did not recruit a soul.
Then I came across the company I am with now. While timing no doubt played a role, I found their product mix and philosophy a “no brainer” for me. It all just made sense. I got in. I got passionate about it too. Now, I’m finally able to recruit and I know that passion was key. Duplication was the key to both my recruiting success and failure. In the past, the problem was that I would recruit and the business would never get into momentum and things would die down. My downline duplicated my lukewarm passion and they never caught fire or were able to attract others. I knew I had to be more effective in recruiting leaders and being able to duplicate what I was doing. I came across a course by Mike Dillard called the Black Belt of Recruiting. It’s amazing! This course is a Step-by-step recruiting system that can change anyone’s business. I know it changed mine. You can check it out for yourself by going to <<insert black belt link here >>
So here is the reality of Network marketing: MLM is a very simple business but not an easy business. You need to be trained just like you trained to drive a car. The fabulous truth is that once you are trained, and have developed that no quit attitude you will be able to control your own destiny.
