The Answer to Network Marketing Frustration

Being frustrated by my lack of success in network marketing is exactly what moved me to find the truth. What I found was so intriguing; that I have dedicated my professional life to helping others out there turn their sob stories into a success stories. I will back up. A little over 15 years ago, I was introduced into MLM. I was brought into a very famous company and left to figure things out on my own. Needless to say, I figured out that I did not like network marketing very much after that experience. To be honest, I just didn't like the person that recruited me.. he got me to join and I never saw him again. Sound familiar? What's crazy is that the experience of being recruited and left for dead only left me wanting it more. It was what the recruiter said to me when we had our initial conversation that got my wheels turning.He told me that I could be my own boss. He told me that I could set my own hours. He told me that I could be financially independent by joining his busines…

Think and Grow Rich Lessons - Chapter 9: Persistence | The Journey

Think and Grow Rich Lessons from Chapter 9: PersistenceThis chapter comes at no better than time than today for me, personally. Intensity of Desire"The ease with which lack of persistence may be conquered will depend entirely upon the intensity of one's desire."
This is as true today as it was when it was written all those years ago by Mr. Hill.
When we find ourselves hitting "speed bumps" in our efforts, they can often appear as enormous mountain ranges that block our view of the final prize. That is why we must write down, and keep our "WHY" in front of us at all times as we walk through the test of persistence that gauges whether or not we can "take it." These times, early in the journey are the times that separate the weak from the successful and when the desire is so strong that we have no choice but to carry on, then we have what it takes and will pass the test.

It's a Marathon, not a Sprint Mr. Hill goes on, later in the chapter, to s…

Is Success in 10 Steps by Michael Dlouhy for real? | My Personal Experience

Is Success in 10 Steps by Michael Dlouhy for real? Before I just go and say, heck yeah! It's for real! Let me tell you how I found the book.

I found myself at a point in my life that I had all but given up on network marketing and mlm. I had been in and out for the better part of 15 years, and the last company I was working with exploded right when I was starting to get it figured out. I was done with it. I was over the lies, the big hype, the constant push to sign up more distributors and just plain done with the whole industry, to be honest.

This brings us to the not-so distant past. I was sitting at my desk at work, just thinking about how I could get away from the corporate life and work for myself. I didn't want another MLM. I didn't want to get into some illegal pyramid scheme or some money game ponzi scheme that would ultimately be shut down by the FTC. 

I was wracking my brain. Then I thought of something, as if the idea just appeared... I needed a mentor. One that ha…

The Journey of a Network Marketer - The Fun Side of MLM

The Fun Side of MLM - What makes this an amazing industry
Network Marketing has a fun side? Heck yeah! It's fun when you are:

1. Helping others make money
2. Building something so vast that is pays your children's children

Oh, it doesn't happen right away, and anyone that tells you otherwise is lying to you. RUN from them and don't look back. What's fun is the process. The process is especially fun when you have a coach/mentor and a proven system. Yes, the products need to be remarkable and value priced as well. Oh yeah, network marketing really doesn't work without products! 

Let's be completely honest, we are all in the industry because we want to retire early and live a comfortable lifestyle. What's more fun that knowing you are putting together the foundation for an MLM dynasty? Even if your goals are to earn $1000.00 extra per month, it's still fun to know that you are only 3-5 people away from making it happen!


John, I'm not having fun in my bus…

5 Surefire Tips to being a Successful Network Marketer | MLM Tips

So many new network marketers get into MLM and have been fed the lies that it is a sales business. This isn't true. You must know your prospects, therefore... MLM is a relationship and people business. 

I have 5 surefire tips that will help you become a Successful Network Marketer:

1. Learn people skills - It literally costs you or anyone else a single penny to say hi, smile and brighten their day. Approach each person with NO agenda. Developing people skills begins with a genuine desire to get to know how people tick. You want to know what they like, what they need, how YOU can improve their lives.

In some cases, just being a friend to someone will improve their lives, and yours as well. Offer your name, ask their name. Say their name when you talk to them. LISTEN to them. Hear them when they speak. Keep in mind, not everyone is a prospect... however, by being a friend to someone, you open many doors through the power of relationships.

2. Know what your prospects want - Time Freedom,…

The Progression of Mentoring in Network Marketing Part 1 | Relationships Build Businesses

Relationships Build Businesses - You can't do it alone!
So, about a month ago... I was walking into my office building where I work temporarily. I walked into the coffee shop, and the woman working there swore up and down that I was famous. I told her that I was, and that has been our fun conversation ever since.

Today, I was leaving and something told me to go talk to her. I went and showed her pictures of my grandchildren and we cut up and had a normal conversation. Normally, I never mix my network marketing or mentoring with people at that place... but something kept telling me to share my site with her. My site hosts the book that saved my business and personal life, Success in 10 Steps by Michael Dlouhy.

So, I did it. I didn't think much of it. She was grateful that I shared the link with her, and I headed out to do my normal after work thing. I headed home, had a meal, went to Jiu Jitsu class, came home, hung out with the family, answered some emails, did some follow ups an…

Network Marketing and MLM Sponsoring vs Recruiting - Part 4 | Why I Chose to Be a Sponsor

Why I chose to be a Network Marketing Sponsor and Mentor
It's been a few days since I have posted on here, and with some good reason. I have been spending some quality time reaching out to my team, working with them and helping them move into their dreams. 

I have also been talking with some brilliant prospects and clients that have shared their stories with me. I heard their pain when they were telling me about how they had been taken advantage of by greedy companies and sponsors, I mean recruiters with huge egos. I have heard stories of having to pay hundreds of dollars to join companies and spend even more for training and materials. That did it... I already knew I was a mentor and sponsor. Just hearing these stories brought out my true passion.

I'm just one person, and my mission is to find and help as many people that I can that have been through the bad side of MLM and Network Marketing. When I first started mentoring and sponsoring, I was a bit focused on myself. Makes sen…
