Richard is right on the mark (as usual)

new people don't need to bother with trying to teach other new people they just need to build their business. They can learn as they g and worry about becoming a teacher later. The number one thing everyone needs to do is "get going".

There are very few occasions in life where I waited to do something until I knew how to do it.

In almost every case where I wanted to do something I simply jumped in with both feet, came out swinging and watched what happened next.

We've approached network marketing the same way.
If you wait till you're ready that moment rarely comes.

This is in fact the first time in my career as a network marketer that I've put a significant amount of time into preparation... and that's only because Im sitting on the other side of the table this time as the system creator.

But the ideaology and principle of the system is based on that experiential knowledge Ive gained through the years, which simply put is... GO - get started.

You don't have to be an expert, you dont have to be able to teach anything other a simple 4 step formula, you dont have to be ultra talented, beautiful, successful, experienced, or exceptional. You just have to be ambitious, willing to take action and follow a daily blueprint.

Its a completely selfish creation... everything Im not good at or didnt like doing, all the things I let hold me back, all the things that appeared to be hurdles, nearly all of it rolled into a beautifully orchestrated system based on leverage and automation to create a passive residual lifestyle.

We have to remember, the thing people are looking for, the solution they desperately want, is a solution that will allow them to enjoy life... this isnt about trading one job for another.

Do you have to be able to teach before you recruit?
Absolutely not. And frankly, contrary to popular modernized thinking, you dont even need a system...
Yeah I know, that just blew a few minds.

Systems and tools and the internet are luxuries most people take for granted today.
Ambition, a dream and a willingness to work it is all you need.

Its all we had when we built our last team. No special tools, no fancy internet marketing...
Nothing but a pad of paper, a pen, a coffee table and warm bodies to talk to and share the story with.

You dont have to be a teacher... you just have to be inspired.

If you are not ready to teach don't recruit!
Precisely! You know I got some critisism for using this title, I did it on purpose. Reason why is that is the mentality many have.


Are you saying that you didn't really believe what you wrote?

When I first started out in the MLM arena, they right away threw us into training calls before we even got our feet wet! Now I definitely don't recommend that for most people.


What would you recommend?

But the mindset today is become an expert (but they neglect to say, learn to be) You can't be an expert from day one.


And therefore no money coming in until you do become an expert. Wouldn't you agree that it's a lot better to have your team in your primary making money within the first 30 days? Making money, building a primary team for residual income, duplicating that and that only comes from following a mentor/leader/coach who's done it themselves.

I have grown enough in knowledge and business experience that I will be able to teach/mentor. It's just not something newbies are capable of doing. learning to recruit and draw traffic is my goal.

Anyway, not wanting to teach at this point and not being expected to teach at this point takes away a lot of the stressful complications.

I am also thankful that once I bring in a new person in this expectation will not be put on themeither. They will be immediately placed in training and the only expectation they will have is to implement what they learn. My job towards them is simple, 100% support no matter what. :D


You know Stephen this is really good, so I wanted to spotlight it, then the real job is to make sure that you are where you can bring your new people to be taught by your upline or your community.

Thank you Lynda, you are right. New people should be introduced to certified trainers first thing and their training should start from day one.

One more point I bet many don't get. Consciously study the company, the leaders, and the one you are contemplating joining. Does it truly fit who you are? Does it feel like something you can feel good about representing? And big one: Consciously choose who you align with, if you choose someone who doesn't yet have leadership skills, do they have someone you can hook up with to help you? If they don't, (and this happens often) then the whole group is floundering and failing! I purposely studied all the people in this arena and purposely choose who I wanted to sponsor me.

I think it should be up to the sponsor, whether new themselves or not, to provide some guidance, or at least point the new recruit to the person or resources that can help them.

Since MLM is a people helping people business, I would think you would have to be willing to teach anyone you sponsor, whether it's simply leading them to presentations using 3rd party tools or something.

You can't just leave them hanging.

The simpler you make it to share your opportunity the better for all concerned.

As Joyce mentioned in an earlier post, f1. Find people interested in what you have to offer. 2. Share a presentation with them. 3. After they join, teach them to do the same.

Personally if someone was trying to sponsor me and yet they weren't willing to help me or point me to someone that could, I'd wouldn't join with them.

Of course they could always say, they'd help you and afterwards leave you hanging.

I repeat, that's why it is good if you are a self starter.

Great discussion and a lot of passion in the replies.

Let's get ready to "RUMBLE!" :lol:


This is perfect! I don't claim to be able to perfectly say it, but this is really what I was trying to say.

lyndacromar wrote:I am standing my ground. It has to do with thinking that sponsoring is the end. No, it is the beginning. It is definitely about making sure they have what they need, if you don't know how to teach then you better know where to point them. For brand new people that don't yet know what to do, then make sure you can plug them in somewhere so they get help! Make sure you have someone to point them to like an upline, and system.

I was on a call yesterday with a new person, and she told me she wasn't ready to help someone new, that was holding her back actually. But she did have all she needed, because she can three-way into me, and she can connect with our whole team.

Does that make sense?



You can stand your ground all you would like but if everyone had that opinion than no one would be in network marketing. Recruiting is the first thing a person new to the business should do. Teaching and training can be done by your upline or the company.

Its makes no sense for a person to walk before they crawl.
