You are flat out wrong and I can tell from your statements that you still aren't making real money at this.
IT IS A NUMBERS GAME.
EVERY BUSINESS IN THE WORLD IS A NUMBERS GAME.
Internet Marketers with affiliates? Guess what? Only a few affiliates will make up the majority of your income. You could have 10,000 affiliates and you'd find 3-5 of them make up 50% of your referrals.
Real Estate, Insurance, Financial Planning? Go into any of these offices in the country. You will find that there will be only a couple of agents in a typical office that make the majority of the money. You'll see a lot of mediocre agents, part-time agents, etc. Only a few will be making serious money. They will do more money in sales than the rest of the office combined!
Someone on this topic mentioned airlines. MOST of the people flying on an airline probably fly what? 1 or 2 times a year, if that? However we all know there are business people who are flying every week. There are even business people flying every day. Some of them take hops to and from offices every single day. These are the best customers for the airline, not the person who takes one flight a year. That's why those people pay for their bags. Heck my friend just got a ton of frequent flyer miles as a bonus because her flight was simply delayed. Does the average airline customer get free miles because their flight was delayed? Heck no!
Network Marketing is the SAME WAY.
As you begin to build a team you will find that 3-5 legs will make up 80% or MORE of your income.
It has NEVER been any different. You cannot find a single leader in the world that has 10 legs making 80% of their income. It just doesn't happen. I've seen demonstrations done time and time again where we've stood leaders up in the front of the room and asked them how many legs make up the majority of their income. Usually the number is 3. I've seen some people say 5 or 6 but usually they are earlier in their career and still have small teams numbering in the hundreds, not thousands or tens of thousands.
Some people are simply BETTER than others. There are many reasons why this could be. Some of them might include: They have more skills. They have worked on personal development. They have a better network. They have a stronger why. They are self motivated. They are confident. They are attractive. They are intelligent. They are "doers". They don't make excuses. They could have some, or all of these factors going for them.
On average you have to sponsor 30 people to find one of those leaders.
That is the industry average. It will obviously vary.
I got lucky. In my company the first person I sponsored was one of those. A top 10 income earner. A distributor of the year. You don't sponsor those type of people that often
However finding the next one is taking a long time
