HOW MANY OPPORTUNITIES SHOULD YOU WORK?
HOW MANY OPPORTUNITIES DO YOU WORK?
Are you involved with more than one network marketing opportunity?
I recently saw a post on BetterNetworker that read:
"... I just recently bailed on 2 opportunities that I feel were not producing
results. I am still a member of others, but I am looking for another."
What caught my eye wasn't the fact that he just "bailed" on TWO
opportunities, it was the phrase: "I am still a member of OTHERS."
Now I didn't read the whole thread, and he looked like a sharp guy so
he may well be very successful in this industry, but it did cause me to
reflect on how many opportunities people are joining/working out
there, and why.
As a trainer, I often see people involved with so many things that they
can hardly keep them straight, let alone excel in any of them.
Their strategy seems to be to keep trying things until they find something
that's going to "work."
I feel this approach is based on a false assumption:
"That the "RIGHT" opportunity is out there (somewhere) and if one keeps
searching long enough and trying enough things, they'll eventually find it
and hit it big."
The reality is there are many good opportunities out there, and sure, some
are better than other but there are no "perfect ones."
Usually, your success in an opportunity has a lot more to do with
"you" and how you approach your business, and the team you assemble,
than the opportunity you join. (Assuming you've joined a decent one).
To maximize your success, work on "YOU."
In my own downline I've watched some people make hundreds of
dollars, some fail, and others make six figures or more.
Why? Experience, skillset, mindset, persistance, resolve...
Who you are (or are becoming) can be a big determiner of your success,
more so than what company you join.
I've observed people join companies that are "older" and slower growing
and go on to make six and seven figures. Could they have done "better"
in a different company - perhaps. But...
I've also watched people join fast moving start-ups and fail while others
go on to succeed wildly right along side them.
I think this illustrates that if you acquire the right skillset and mindset,
success will chase you regardless of where you go. I share the tactics
(and mindset) that changed things for me in Surefire Sponsoring
So... how many opportunities should you be working?
The argument for working ONE is compelling: FOCUS
FOCUS on ONE thing, and do it extremely well, and create undiluted
success that catapults you into the stratosphere.
If you've joined an opportunity that's good, and it's not working for
you - the temptation is to go find one that will. (It's always easier to
change our opportunity, than change ourselves).
But more often than not, it's "US" who needs to change. I know
it was for me when I first started out.
A good argument also exists for working more than one: DIVERSIFICATION
There are people who join multiple opportunities and build some
very profitable income streams.
What's right MAY depend on your reason. Are you chasing after that
elusive "something" that's going to work and be your "magic bullet?"
If so, STOP. That's not the best reason to work multiple opportunities.
If you're building a traditional opportunity it's smarter to work
ONE. The FOCUS you model to your team will encourage
THEM to focus which ultimately can build huge organiziations.
If you're working 3-5 things, what's that saying to your downline?
Odds are, they'll do the same and it may not be the same 3-5 things
you're working... thus everyone's efforts are dilluted.
On the other hand, if you're opportunity is more of a short-term
venture OR, is more of an online build that's closer to an affiliate
model, then diversification is a smart play and you'll want to
assemble a portfolio of income streams.
Do you agree or disagree? If you're someone who has "tried"
multiple things and that's lead you to "the one" that's really
paid off, what was it that "it" had the others didn't? If you
ever have to pick another winner some day, do you think you
can or do you think it'll be more trial and error?
What's YOUR approach and how's it working out for you?
