In my last post, I talked about Avoiding Fantasies in order that you know what it takes to be successful in network marketing.
Today, we will talk about Fantasy No.2 – that you can be lazy and just have 1 or 2 leaders who are committed and work hard to build a large organization for you.
While there is some truth in this statement (that LEADERS will build the organization), there is a catch! Where do we find the leaders? If you have been learning or doing network marketing for a while, you probably be able to IDENTIFY what the leader qualities are…..Well, just recruit those leaders seems like a great strategy! However, many leaders are already ‘married to’ their own network marketing companies. So, what should we do? I find Tom ‘Big Al’ Schreiter’s approach to be both sensible and ethical: instead of ‘stealing’ leaders, we recruit potential leaders and then develope them into leaders.
The million dollar question is: HOW to attract the potential leaders and develope them?
The answer is: We OURSELVES have to step up and become a leader first. Potential leaders who are serious in doing network marketing well will be attracted to us! As a leader, we will be able to pass on the invaluable wisdom and skills to them. They can BE IN THE GAME right in the beginning and follow our Success Steps. I call this “Small Steps to Success”, further extending the idea in Dani Johnson’sfamous live workshop “First Steps to Success”.
In my next post, I shall share with you Fantasy No. 3 (that the products can sell themselves or the internet can do all the job). Interested? Stay tuned!
