The reason why I think this happens is that they have there passion for building there business mixed up with there passion for there company,or maybe even there passion for having a better life is mixed up with the passion for the company also ,or maybe both . In any case there is more than one way to make money online than just signing up people in your down line . Would you drive down a street and just look one way ? No. Did you drive the same route to work before you figured out which route was the fastest ? No. So why do so many people do the opposite when it comes to finding the path to success and just stay on one trail ?
Let me know what you think people and chime in on this one so we can go back back and forth and forth !
To be successful in any business, I would think you'd have to have a passion for it. I would not say it is necessarily being brain washed, I'd call it being focused.
Years back, I heard of some companies that would not allow it's distributor's to be in more than one company at a time. They considered it a conflict of interest.
I like something I learned years ago from my mentor, who went on to earn millions in this industry as well as help others to do the same, or to at least become six figure earner's. But...
My mentor always said, what do you notice in every McDonald's Franchise when you go in them, the fries are always on the left.
In other word's McDonald's does not complicate things, they keep it simple. (Focus) and duplicateble systems.
Now, once you get into McDonald's they UP SELL the hell out of you with fries and malts and super sizing your order.
I would encourage distributor's to try to find that one company they can get behind and put their heart into building it as a business, and then maybe as a sideline to generate extra income, they could offer something such as MLSP, whereby they and their downline members could get an excellent training source on marketing online and offline, as well as they'd have a full line of affiliate products they could promote through their MLSP marketing funnel. Because not everyone will join you in your primary business.
Since most MLM companies have pretty much taken out the retailing aspect of the business, you now need a self funded proposal to try and make any extra income to help keep you afloat while you are trying to build your business.
My definition of being brain washed would be someone who is maybe simply focused on building their business with one company, what ever company they have found to be a distributor in. I would think that to be a good thing, considering the other option of a scatter brain. , Someone who's all over the place.
The real issue is, to learn how to market. Marketing is the key to building any business.
Learn how to effectively market and you can build a successful business AND make great income, no matter the company.
