The Support Systems of MLM Super-Achievers

This past week I read the amazing story of LuAn Mitchell, one of Canada’s great entrepreneurs. Her story will never be a movie because no one would believe it!

Pregnant at 16, later a beauty queen who married a man even after they found out he had a life-threatening disease, single mom, and CEO of (believe it or not) one of Canada’s largest meat packing companies, she has an astonishing story of perseverance and accomplishment.

How did she do it? And, what can we learn from people like LuAn who overcome the odds and get results most of us only dream of?

I think there are at least four basic principles that MLM distributors can keep in mind.

The basics are just that, the BASICS! Too often we get caught in the busy-ness of life and we either forget to monitor the first principles of success, or we get over-confident and think we can re-invent the basics, but there are no “new fundamentals.” The fundamentals have not changed. We either take care of business, or we struggle.  (Or we count on “luck” to save the day…never a smart plan.)

So, what are the basics? Read the rest of this entry »

The Joys of Repeated Failure, especially in Network Marketing

For most of us, “failure” has a tragic and undeserved reputation as something bad and painful. It’s very unfair, and it holds us back and limits our success. If “failure” had an attorney, it would have an excellent chance of winning a lawsuit for defamation and slander.  :-)

Too often, we view failure as reflecting on the person who “failed”. We view them (or ourselves) as having poor judgment, poor skills, or lack of character! How absurd!

There are only a handful of ways to “fail”, and I don’t view any of them as bad.

First, you can “fail” by losing a competition. I remember talking to a high school athlete who defined himself as “slow” because he lost a race to the state’s fastest sprinter. I also remember a beautiful and talented woman who defined herself as “ugly” because in college she finished fourth in a beauty pageant.  How, exactly, are those examples of “failure”?

Are you beating yourself up when you don’t win your MLM Companies product retailing contest?  Or when there are bonuses for new sponsoring activities?  Why? Read the rest of this entry »

Is there a Secret to Personal Leadership?

Let me ask you a question…

What do you do to get yourself going in the morning?

Coffee? Exercise? Shower?

Doesn’t really matter… odds are you have been doing it for years, and have gotten quite good at it.

You have been displaying Personal Leadership in your life, and it has proven to get you to where you need to go every morning.

Do you realize that it can also get you to where you want to go in your business as well?

There are basically 3 types of Leadership in MLM:

  1.  Personal 
  2.  Formal (group)
  3.  Mentoring

Personal Leadership is one key to your success in Network marketing, as it builds your other Leadership skills as you go.

Important tip: If you cannot Lead You, you cannot lead others. Read the rest of this entry »

Professional Impressions will make or break Your MLM Business

These are the The 10 Most Common Business Etiquette Errors and it is something you need to be aware of and share with your MLM Team so they are not doing them.

1. Wasting other people’s time. Are you sometimes late for appointments? Do you occasionally arrive unprepared? Have you missed deadlines for turning in assignments? Do you feel that barging into another person’s conversation or work space any time you want is acceptable?

2. Speaking before thinking. Listen carefully to yourself. Do you call people by inappropriate nicknames or use forms of address such as “Hon” or “Babe” that could be interpreted as demeaning or insulting? Do you sometimes use humor that is tasteless or crude? Have you ever insulted, criticized, or embarrassed a colleague? Do you gossip or perpetuate rumors? Read the rest of this entry »

Do you Build your MLM Business scattered or with a Daily Method of Operation?

You grab the mail from your mailbox. Between all the bills and junk mail you find a letter from your MLM company. You rip it open and pull out a bonus check. You laugh and say, “I might as well cash it and go shopping!”

On your way to the bank you notice about 50 cars, bumper to bumper, slowly following a hearse.

Suddenly the hearse accelerates to over a hundred miles per hour. Your sense of adventure kicks in and you decide to pursue. You rush past fifteen other cars just to keep up with the speeding hearse.

The hearse makes a U-turn, followed by a right turn and then a sharp left turn. Luckily you’re Mario Andretti’s cousin, so you’re able to stay on his tail, but 20 of the other cars can’t keep up and drop out.

The hearse speeds up for a mile, zips down an alley, runs a red light and disappears into heavy traffic. Even you can’t keep up, so you decide to quit trying. Read the rest of this entry »

What it Takes to Launch Success with your MLM / Network Marketing Team

You may not be new, but you do need tips to keep an eye on those who are!  When your building an MLM team, you need to be able to determine when someone needs help or just plain won’t make it. 

When it comes to abundance, one of the most common “set-ups” for scarcity results from lack of awareness and understanding of the process required to create or access it.

Consider the space shuttle at take-off. Have you noticed its huge fuel tanks? I once read that the space shuttle uses about 85 percent of that fuel in the first five minutes of its flight! It is being launched into space where it will orbit around the earth for five to ten days, yet it uses 85 percent of its fuel in the first five minutes! Why?

It needs the fuel to overcome inertia and get moving. Once it actually lifts off, it needs more fuel to gain speed and break through the earth’s gravitational field. Only after it has made it through gravity can it be carried by earth’s orbit for the duration of its mission.

As your MLM Team begins to “launch” toward their goals and abundance, it is important that you understand the importance of this example. Anytime someone sets a new goal, they will also need to overcome “inertia” to get moving toward that goal. Just like the space shuttle, they will need to have lots of “fuel” to do this. (By the way, if you’re wondering what this has to do with abundance, the state of inertia is rarely abundant.) Read the rest of this entry »
