A True Network Marketing Sponsor does not take, they give and give...
I have found that I am not concerned with making money anymore. I am more concerned with helping other people make money. I believe that means that I have become a sponsor! Feels pretty good to really focus on helping people that have had little or no success in Network Marketing. It just keeps making me want to give and give more. The reason this is so is because my sponsor has been the same with me. He has been there from the beginning of this journey, coaching, helping, giving me the skills I need to succeed... and I all I want to do is pass it on to my team!
In the past 2 weeks, I have met about a dozen people that have been recruited. They were told by their recruiters that they would help them every step of the way. Out of the dozen, 8 of these people never heard from the person that recruited them after they spent upwards of $500 for a business starter kit. Two of the people I have met that I am now mentoring, were actually told to promote multiple products and business opportunities at once before even sponsoring a single person or getting a customer with their main business. I'm sorry for the language, but that pisses me off.
This really solidifies my decision to become a network marketing mentor and coach. I hate seeing honest people get ripped off. The good news is, I can and do help them. I have been in their position and I have made it my mission to help as many as I can.
What do you give as a sponsor, John?
Well, most of all, I give my time. My time to find out where someone is, what they really wish to accomplish and from there... my mentor and I put together a plan of attack. Everyone is different. Some people have already developed some skills, some need to be trained from the bottom up... no matter, I will give them my time to help them develop these network marketing skills.
I give them a solid relationship. I make it a point to make my team feel comfortable enough to be able to tell me anything that is on their mind. I never judge them, because I am no better than them... I have just been taught some things that they have not. I will be working with these amazing people for a very long time, so I want them to know that they have a friend. One of my favorite team members, I met almost 10 years ago. We stay in contact, and when I told her about the Mentoring For Free program, and Success in Ten Steps , she was all in and ready to put it to work. The relationships I have developed since, are some people that will my family will be celebrating holidays with and taking trips with. It's more than business, it's a family!
I give them me. I want them to succeed more than anything. I give them my heart, my mind and my soul. I believe in anyone that is willing to be coached and apply the skills taught. I owe it to them, because 9 out of 10 times... they have been lied to and scammed by some fast talking recruiter with only profit on the agenda. Network Marketing is a wonderful industry, and I want my team to experience it in the most positive way!
I know this may sound too good to be true, but it's not. I thought the same thing. I was just waiting for the bomb to drop. Well, the only bomb is that the system works! It works for normal people that want a better life, and to own that life!
Again, Sponsors... Real Network Marketing Sponsors give... and the give like there is no tomorrow.
Til Next Time,
"Because YOU Are Worth It!"
