MLM pros know how to get things done

MLM pros know that success requires persistence and hard work. It takes discipline and commitment to success to ALWAYS complete any work that is important and related to their goals.

Sometimes you've got to choose work over fun. (Of course, if THIS work isn't fun, you're not doing it right!) When you get things done, that connects your motivations and your goals. Unfortunately, most of the population would rather watch the reruns of Grey's Anatomy.

If you are truly on the success path, then you will take full responsibility for their actions. You realize that what you are today, and what you will be tomorrow, depends 100% on YOU! Your results come directly from your choices & decisions. You are proactive, and you go the extra mile, using your own resources & abilities - and your team's - to reach your goals.

I come across people who seem to think all they need to do is sign up for an MLM company and they will not have to put any time or effort into their business. There are also people who think their upline is going to do all the hard work for them, and all they have to do is collect the check. If you need help with your mlm I will be there to help you. I will teach and train you the skills needed to be successful in mlm.

The only way to identify an MLM pro is by their results. The world is constantly changing. Nobody stays the same for long. They either get better, or they get worse. The only sensible choice is to work your butt off until you can see the results you want - and then keep working until those results are overwhelming. THEN you'll know you're on stable ground, and it's safe to take some R & R.

Network Marketing / Olympic Gold Medal Success Secret

EVERY Olympic athlete has a coach. The top ones hire their own personal coach.

Having a coach was (and is) one of the smartest things I have ever done.

A coach keeps you accountable and focused. There are just soooooo many opportunities in life to get sidetracked.

Pro athletes like Tiger Woods, Bobby Bonds, Peyton Manning, Michael Jordan all the big stars, have several coaches. Each coach teaches their own specialty and leadership skills.

How To Choose A Coach

We've been married almost 19 years. If we wanted marriage counselling, would we talk to someone who's never been married? How about someone who's graduated from college with 3 or 4 degrees and never been married? Would I go to someone who's been married for 2 years or 5 years, when I've been married for 19 years? Would I go to someone married 10 years, with no children?

Or would I talk to someone who's been married 30 or 40 years or more and who has raised a couple healthy, happy kids?

Who would you want to get your coaching from? Somebody who has experienced it, or somebody who hasn't?

Many of the coaches today in network marketing have never built an organization. Or they built¬ it 5, 10, 15 years ago, but they can't build it today.

As the old saying goes, "if you can't do, teach."

So these network marketing coaches go out and teach people how to do what they can't do. What they did 10 years ago worked 10 years ago. But it doesn't work today.

So instead of being on the cutting edge of technology and learning (and USING!) the state-of-the-art in network marketing business-building, they¬ hold themselves up as a coach!

I've even seen one coach who shows you his huge downline geneology. If you look closely, you'll notice it's from 12 years ago. He hasn't done anything since.

If you're going to be coached, you want to be coached by somebody who is doing it NOW, someone who is active today.

It's crazy, but there are even¬ "coaches" who promote it as a virtue that they no longer do network marketing. They'll tell you this lets them be objective. They'll tell you that you don't need to worry about them recruiting you into some other business.

Here is the truth: there's a lot more money in network marketing than there is in coaching - IF you can actually do network marketing, AND you can do the coaching anyway, while you're building your business.

So why isn't this person in network marketing anymore?

Easy. It's because they can't do it. Plain and simple, they can't build it.

It is completely insane to choose as your coach someone who is not currently successful at network marketing. You are being ripped-off, plain and simple.

We've even talked to a couple of these "unbiased" network marketing coaches who actually don't like network marketing. They don't believe in it. Yet they will gladly take your money to coach you to success in network marketing!

One more thing - 90% of these coaches tell you that YOU have to change. They say you have to get out of your comfort zone, become this "A" type personality. And THAT is the reason it doesn't work.

Those "A" personalities can go out and do anything and be successful at it. But 92% of the world can't do that. And when you go out there telling them they have to change, it's no wonder there's such a high failure rate in network marketing.

Here's what we think:

1. You're perfect just the way you are.

2. You need belief in yourself, belief in the business.

3. Learn some skills.

4. Take action.

And to coach somebody in network marketing, the biggest thing they need coaching on is their belief. They don't believe in the industry, their company, or themselves.

Most top business people have (or once had) a true mentor, someone who's done it before and knows what to do. The person with a mentor has a big advantage. We would be honored to be YOUR mentor, no matter what company you are in.

As your coach, we will believe in YOU until you can believe in yourself!

Two words that scream "Network Marketing Scam"!

There are two words that scream " Network Marketing Scam"!

Word #1: probably the biggest scam ever run on people in MLM network marketing is the powerline.

The worst thing you can ever do building your business is to create fear of loss. It's the worst way to build your business. Oh, yes, it definitely works - to get people in. But you have a totally false business, because you've got a bunch of people, and none of them ever does anything.

Word #2: Many companies that do a powerline - or even a binary or a matrix - focus their promotion talk on spillover. Now, I have met people who have gotten spillover, definitely. BUT - none of the people that were spilled over on them ever did anything! Why?

Because the promise of "spillover" creates a welfare mentality. What happens when you tell people, "Oh, get in NOW, and you are going to get spillover!"

They're afraid of losing something for nothing. So they do get in now - and then they sit and wait for all that spillover to make them rich.

Isn't That A Wonderful Business Plan?

It's like joining a binary because you can get a position that already has $1 million volume in the strong leg. The reality is, you don't make a dime, unless you build the weak leg, But people get so worked up about losing that "$1 million position", they join - and never do anything, and never earn any income.

So never forget those words, powerline & spillover. Anytime you see them, their purpose is to promote the welfare mentality. Something for nothing, something for nothing, something for nothing.

The fact is, you are in network marketing. Network marketing is a business that takes work. It's net-work marketing, ok? it's not net-free marketing. It's not net-spillover marketing. It's not net-zero marketing, it takes work. Anything you do that promotes the "something for nothing" mindset will not work. End of story.

But you will draw in a bunch of couch potatoes who are convinced that you are going to build it for them. Matter of fact, you can even give them your bank account number, and you'll just pass the money directly to their account. They don't have to leave the couch. They can stay on the couch, drink their beer and watch a football game. No problem.

Use Those Two Words As A Tip

Whatever company or whatever distributor is saying them to you, that is not the company or the person you want to depend on long-term. They will not be successful. Keep on looking. There are lots of good companies & MLMers out there. Keep looking, and you'll find the right mentor.

If you are currently looking for a coach and mentor to help you get the skills needed to find a good network marketing company to build for long term success we would be happy to help.

The Network Marketing "Spillover" Myth

A caller recently told me he's joining an MLM company because they promised him spillover. I said, "They are lying to you!"

The guy called me back later and said, "I point-blank asked them if I'd get people put underneath me, and the guy said, ëWell, we can't guarantee that.'"

Spillover - Creating a Welfare Mentality

Good people don't want welfare. They want to build it themselves. They just want to learn the skills they need to build this business and create residual income, money that's coming in week after week, year after year, and they can will it to their children's children.

When you look at a lot of network marketing websites, you often see that word "spillover." The proposition, more or less, is, "get in now, today, and you'll get all this spillover."

In 27 years, I have never, ever, ever seen anybody get spillover, having somebody build it for them.

And if you look closely at the compensation plans of the companies that promote spillover, you'll find out that those who get spillover usually don't get paid on it. There are other hoops to jump through to get paid on that spillover, and these people rarely ever qualify.

So it's the person who actually does the work who gets the pay¶ what a novel idea!

Companies & reps use "spillover" as a tool to drag in people who think they can build a business without doing any work. In other words, no sponsoring, no recruiting. It targets that type of person.

When You Say "Spillover", You Are Targeting Quitters!

When you see a network marketing company that promotes spillover on their website, they're looking for welfare-minded people. The problem for you is, you can't build with these people, unless YOU do all the work! That's what they expect. And when you don't build their business, they'll be off somewhere else, looking for a better welfare plan.

So really, when you or your company promote spillover, you are targeting people who will not be with you long-term. And in network marketing, that makes absolutely no sense. The failure rate will be 100%.

And Here's Why The Leads You Buy Tell You To Go Pound Sand!

The quickest way to build a huge list is to offer the moon and require nothing (no money, no work, no purchase) in return. You'll see companies promoting "we've signed up more people faster than anybody else in the history of network marketing." Problem is, there's nobody ordering any product. It's just a bunch of names on a list - but now they can call these people "network marketers."

Then they turn around and sell this huge database of worthless names (an "MLM geneology list") For $10,000 each to 10 different list brokers. BAM! That's $100,000 profit! And then the list brokers sell these "leads" to all the people in network marketing who want to build their business - including YOU!

So you pay $2-$3 a lead for these people, you call them up, and they tell you, "Hey! You’re nuts! I've never been in network marketing!" They don't even know what it is. They just opted in to some pie-in-the-sky list, hoping to get something for nothing.

Conclusion? Run like heck from any company focused on "spillover" - and ALWAYS generate your own leads.
