Success Requires Leadership and Professionalism
Linda J Bruton
MLM can be a viable, wonderful business that enables you to reach
any goals in life you wish to attain.
you want to be successful at MLM, it is time to start thinking
of yourself as the professional that you aspire to be - not as
someone who sends out a different hyped-up email every week or
works one of those "MLM deals."
know that you have a burning desire to succeed because you are
reading this blog. And because you do want to succeed, it is time
to start thinking of yourself as the professional that every one
of your prospects will expect you to be. The sooner you start
thinking of yourself as a professional doing professional things,
the sooner you will become one.
a professional network marketer - a heavy-hitter in the making
- you are a leader, an entrepreneur, someone who believes in what
you are doing. A leader is a self-starter, not someone who sits
around waiting for his or her upline to do the work. A leader
takes responsibility for his or her own success. They don't blame
their sponsor or the program when they fail.
are thousands of very successful people in this business who had
very poor sponsors, and yet they are making thousands of dollars
a month! (And you can count me as one of those). An MLM leader
likes people and is concerned for their success and well being,
and this is evident in the way they treat their downline and the
prospects they communicate with.
is also very evident in the programs they choose to promote. If
you are concerned about the well-being of the prospects you bring
into this business, you won't offer them scams or get-rich-quick
schemes. You will offer programs that they can be proud of, that
will offer them an income for many years to come!
leader is self-confident and enjoys what they are doing. A leader
is someone who knows their own strengths and how to take advantage
of them, their weaknesses and how to compensate. A leader is a
continual learner as well as being a teacher.
don't wait for some guru to take them to the Promised Land. They
get the best map they can find, prepare themselves for the journey,
and start out a step at a time.
they keep going, even when it gets rough or they have to make
adjustments to their route. I am convinced that most people can
become a leader by simply deciding to be one! Once you make the
decision, you'll start doing the work it requires.
no accident that some of the most successful network marketers
were first managers or professionals in other fields. They already
have the background knowledge of how successful businesses are
run. They already know how to be leaders, and they bring this
of these people also understand the kind of ongoing investment
required to make a business work. They joined this industry because
they wanted to keep the profits they produced, rather than giving
them back to their boss or corporation.
are the very people who can make the most difference in your downline,
the kind of prospects who can cause a literal recruiting explosion
and make you a lot of money! If you want to attract this kind
of prospect, you must first be a professional yourself, not someone
playing a money game!
people know how to ask the right questions when evaluating a business
opportunity, and they will expect a lot out of you as a business
partner. If you can deliver, you will profit greatly.
challenge you right now to start thinking of yourself as the leader
you aspire to be. You are a professional in a wonderful industry
with a lot to offer, particularly in this era of layoffs and downsizing.
have financial freedom, security, and a more "people friendly"
lifestyle to offer. You provide a life-enhancing service that
is needed by a lot of people, just as surely as a doctor, lawyer,
accountant, engineer, or computer programmer offers a needed service.
unlike these other professionals, your service can truly change
the lives of those you work with in some very profound and lasting
ways! Be proud of what you do and what you have to offer!
network marketing industry is in great need of professionals who
operate their businesses with integrity. The "money gamers,"
the scam artists, and those who go through the revolving door
give us all a bad name and make our work harder.
becoming the leader you were meant to be, you will not only make
a lot more money. But you'll also be doing your part to preserve
the industry that can earn you a terrific living!
