"Why You Don't Have To Fail In The MLM/Network Marketing Profession" by [Network Marketing Industry Leader Warren Little]
Far too many people fail in the Network Marketing business because of one basic but very important reason. If you failed in Network Marketing see if you find yourself saying Amen to this article.
One reason far too many people fail in the lucrative Network Marketing business is because:
They perceive Network Marketing as being a simple business model that is so easy it requires no special skills or talent.
It's no wonder they think that. Most were introduced to Network Marketing by someone "selling" them on how easy it is, how much money they can make and how little time or investment is required. Since most people tend to want something for nothing it's no wonder people join with the wrong attitude.
I spent 10 years as the Chief Financial Officer of a Mutli-Million Dollar Transportation Corporation. Before I could handle that position, I had to first learn a number of skills and gain a lot of knowledge...all learned over time by trial and error and with help from many people.
The Network Marketing business is a profession. To be successful you must:
1. Be willing to spend the time required to learn skills that you do not now possess.
2. Stay in the game long enough to allow yourself to learn those required skills.
Most people don't get it...you can't learn the professional Network Marketing business skills in a day, week or month...not even in a few months. Success in Network Marketing takes time. There are rarely any overnight successes. You cannot become a doctor or welder without education, training, mentorship, trial and error and TIME!
If you want to help people become successful, start telling them the truth BEFORE they join your Network Marketing Company. It takes 3-5 years to become an "overnight success"...not 3-5 weeks or 3-5 months. And...you must work at it consistently on at least a part-time (not "spare-time") basis over that entire 3-5 year period. Education and training are great but it's only through the actual "doing" of it over time that skills are actually learned.
You need a business strategy that:
1. Gets people in and
2. Keeps them in long enough to progressively learn new skills, habits and attitudes that are required for long-term success in their Network Marketing business.
The key words are "keeps" and "progressively". If people don't stay in long enough then they can't learn enough to be successful and that learning curve is by nature progressive over time...there is simply too much to know and learn all at once.
This is important...in over a decade of success in this Industry I have never met anyone that had the required skills, habits and attitudes when they first joined. I have met a lot of people with backgrounds, education and experience that thought they already had those things...but when they found out they did not...they quit. Of course they blamed it on the company, product, compensation plan, their sponsor, time limitations...anything but themselves.
In truth, virtually anyone can learn the required skills to experience success in the Network Marketing business if they:
- Stay in the game long enough to find out what they are
- Practice them long enough to learn them
- Apply those skills over and over
- Progressively teach those same skills to others.
