I hate to be rude, but the truth is I have a hard time relating to anyone who treats the network marketing industry like a Magic Money Machine. You know—just put up a website, sit back, and profit.
I’m not saying that you’re like that—far from it! But if you’ve fallen for pitchmen making outrageous claims like this, it’s time to change your thinking. That is, unless you want to be one of the 97% of people who fail at network marketing.
But don’t let that 97% statistic fool you. For every person who really gives this industry their all, there are probably at least eight who literally put up a website and then sit back and wait for the cash to roll in. The rest fall into categories that include people who followed incorrect advice about network marketing and people who just weren’t patient enough.
In fact, the importance of patience is one of the things I want to tell you about! I first tried network marketing with a large, then-offline company when I was 18.
The experience was a disaster. I was literally approaching strangers in shopping centers and the occasional stray dog!
Now, at 28, I’ve joined the ranks of the top 3% of network marketing income earners. It happened because I went with a different company and took the time to learn how to do things right.
Speaking of doing things right, the next thing I need to tell you about is the importance of finding a good marketing mentor. I mean, you could make all of your own mistakes, but why do that when there are so many very qualified experts out there to show you exactly what you need to do?
In fact, that’s what I did. I learned from the best in the industry, and now I’m one of the best in the industry.
And that brings me to my last point—to be the best, to earn the highest profits, and to become a leader in the network marketing industry, you absolutely must give your career your best. You need to do the work to become a leader, working on your mindset, educating yourself, and educating others.
In the end, people don’t care about products or business models. They care about people and what people can do for them.
Be a leader who can show people how to solve their problems, and you’ll join me as one of the leaders of the network marketing industry.
If you’re about to give up on your marketing business—don’t. Remember that developing patience and giving your career the best of yourself can take some time. You’ll want to learn network marketing from the best and apply what we’ve taught you.
But give yourself the time, get the education, and do the work it will take you to become a leader, and I’m certain you’ll join me as a network marketing industry leader.
