The Journey of a Network Marketer - Part 1

Day 7 of my new network marketing journey

So, I spent the first 5 posts talking about some experiences and helping folks find the book that changed my life... so I want to make the next 5 - 10 posts about the process.

My process as a network marketing mentor started when I just got fed up with how I, and many others were seen. You know, not being "MLM Heavy Hitters." It can be quite frustrating and if you listen to what they tell you, man... you can end up being broke with a ton of credit card bills that rival the national debt.

So, let me be completely honest... This is a day 7. Yep. Day 7 after a couple of years of research and meeting my mentor that has taken the time and patience to teach me the skills to be a network marketing pro.

Let me be real as ever right now. It's not the easiest thing in the world, branding yourself. You have to believe in yourself. You have to have a genuine desire to help others. After all of the heartache and back slides, it was a transition that didn't happen overnight. In fact, it's a process that I have to work on every minute of the day.

Why do I do it? Because I believe that people are worth it. The pure joy of seeing someone that I help succeed is equivalent of raising my children.

So today, day 7. I have built up some social media pages. Nothing major, just really laying the foundations. Observing others and really learning what makes other people tick. Seeing what drives people to do what they do and also taking notes from experienced mentors in the process.

The first 6 days I really focused on helping some people that I already knew. That, my friends is a real challenge. People that know me? The people that saw my ridiculous posts about random stupidness and how my attitude went through a bit a downfall after the last company I worked with blew up and went down. This... it was the challenge. I proved to myself that I can show them that I am sincere. This makes a great headway into the open waters of helping those in which I do not know and start to build relationships all over the world.

Finding out the network marketing is not what some sponsors led me to believe in the past (you know, go make a list of 100 people and wear them out where the don't want to answer the phone when you call) has been eye opening and has brought me to a place where I am learning all over again. I may be weird, but I really enjoy learning new things, especially when it is for the sake of my family and the families of those that I will become partners with.

One more thing about Day 7, I have found that the things I did day 1-6 in order to help others were not done as well as they were today, so it's progressive.

I am grateful for the opportunity to find others that have been through similar situations as I and be there to let them know that they are not alone and we will do this together. That, more than any amount of money, is rewarding.

Day 7 of my new network marketing journey is one of new opportunities showing up in places that I would have never looked before because the journey isn't one I will be making on my own.

I am excited to see what Day 8 brings and I look forward to sharing with everyone!

Remember - You are worth it, and you are successful. You just need to believe it!

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…

Day 12 - The Paradigm Shift into being a Real Mentor

To be quite honest with you, there was a few days that I did not really see myself as a mentor. Then, it was in the middle of writing a post on what I received from reading the chapter on persistence in "Think and Grow Rich" by Napoleon Hill, that it clicked. Some would call it an "Aha" moment. I call it one of the most excited states of vibration my body has ever encountered!

I had been questioning my credibility as a mentor based on what I believed other people that knew me, thought of me. Oh man, how silly is that. As mentioned in the chapter, many fail to persist based on their fear of criticism. This is a fear that lives deeply embedded in our habits that it can be difficult to remove. In my case, it was instantly removed. I came to the reality that I DO NOT CARE what other people think of me and it feels good!

So, being a mentor... what is it?

In my own experience, a mentor is someone that will guide you, teach…

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…
