Network marketing is a challenging profession. Jim Rohn described network marketing as “herding cats.” The real challenge is becoming the leader you were created to be. As a network marketer, I was taught how to build a business the wrong way. And you were probably taught the wrong things too.
Think about it for a minute. When I was a full-time real estate investor I purchased real estate by non-traditional methods. Meaning I had to be creative. To be creative you have to develop a relationship with the person that was going to invest their money in you. That person will invest in you if they liked and trusted you. Of course your credit played a role, but if you had great credit but were not credible, you didn’t get the money.
Network marketing is no different. You must gain the trust and be liked by the people you do business. It’s that simple. Somehow that message was lost. As a result, frustration sets in and many people quit and give the network marketing profession a black eye. I don’t blame the disgruntled former network marketers. I place blame in the industry and many of the “gurus” that tell you to recruit, recruit, and recruit. Recruit your friends, family and everyone you come in contact (the 3-foot rule). As Dr. Phil would say, “How’s that been working out?”
If you are new or have been a network marketer for a few years and you are struggling, you must understand that your lack of success is not your fault. The system set you up for failure from the very beginning.
After six companies and years of trial and error, I came across Michael Dlouhy. As the saying goes, “When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.” I downloaded the “Success In 10 Steps” e-book, watched 3 videos and then had a conversation with the author, Michael Dlouhy. It was that simple.
There is no such thing as short cuts to success. But if you want a blue print to get you there faster, it all starts with this little book, “Success In 10 Steps” by Michael Dlouhy.
My wish for you is that you get the proper skills to get you started on the right foot, going in the right direction so you can build your business once and build it big to last your life, your children’s life and your grandchildren’s life.
