Okay, recently I was getting off a conference call with the Founder and CEO of a pretty darn good Network Marketing Company. Actually one of the top network marketing companies around. One of the things he stressed on this call is not to use the word ‘spill over’ in any way ,shape, or form !
You know what I guys I completely agree with this notion.
And this leads up to something I want to expound on.
Here are three kinds of people who for the most part will not make it in Network Marketing and historically almost never do.
1. The first type is what I call the ‘temporary go getter’. Yeah, he is the guy who is so psyched to have join the new network marketing company. He goes out and contacts his friends, family, co workers, church friends and everyone who pretty much has a blood pressure. After a few weeks he scratches his head because he has brought in zero associates into his Organization and has made a big goose egg financially.
After this ho hum performance he deems this type of business not feasible or not duplicatable and consequently throws in the towel for good.
So let us rewind this back a second. This person has given this biz 3 or 4 weeks and he puts a lid on it ?? Is he crazy considering the fact most conventional businesses take over 2 years to see a profit. Sure this is not a conventional business but do NOT dare for a second think that Overnight riches will happen to you even in the top network marketing companies. It Won’t !! It takes time and work to see results and you need to sow before you reap.
2. The second kind of person I refer to as the ‘wave rider’. He or she joins an Network Marketing Organization with the perception that there could be some so called spill over into his or down line down line. ( many upline members make deceitful promises that this will happen to them). He or she refuses to do much work and just waits for that lucrative spill over to occur in his or her down line only to be disappointed when it does not happen. I have seen this scenario over and over again. People think that others will spill over from the top and be automatically put into their down line with no work. Folks, 99% of the time it will not happen.
3. Finally, the person who has little chance of having success is one that ask question after question about the program, product, compensation etc..etc.. They seem leery of the Company and no matter what you do they continue to have this mindset. Finally, after tugging back and forth in their head they join as an associate albeit grudgingly and are nothing more than dead weight. Their negative attitudes from the git go are their demise , and it is almost better that they not join in your down line because as I said they are useless weight.
This business is tough. Even in the top networking marketing companies ! You can have a huge down line of Associates in your Organization. But that is no indication or guarantee that you will have huge Success in the future.
Your best bet is to work to find those few hidden gems just like pearls in a oyster. If you get 3 or 4 individuals that have your vision and mindset about the Company and its Products and the same work ethic then you can really go a long way in this business !!
