The Journey of a Network Marketer - Part 10 | Off the Beaten Path


Off the Beaten Path - You could say that is where I am living these days.

Why did I choose to talk about the path? Isn't this a network marketing blog? Yes... it is, and there is a method to the madness.

Along the "beaten" path, so to speak, I found myself running up and down, to and fro, with my hair on fire... throwing mud against the wall and expecting it to stick. I just ended up with a dirty wall and dirty shoes from running down that dusty path.

What is the beaten path?


Okay, enough metaphor. The beaten path is all of that activity that I did, repeatedly, expecting different results. Or as some would say, INSANITY! lol

I was trying to turn carpenters into ballerinas, going through lists, buying leads, over-posting products, selling useless signups, building lists from other people's lists (yes, that is a thing), and all of this mess that yielded little or no real results in my network marketing efforts.

The beaten path is lined with snake oil salesmen and carnival barkers; all with the "Secret" to your success - with a price tag, of course. Endless lists of "auto-pilot" tools to do your work for you and take you to the land of millionaires without lifting a finger. 

Oh, you've been on the beaten path, eh?

How do we get to the unbeaten path?

Oh, the conundrum... the million dollar question! Want the answer?

First thing, and I sound like a broken record, find a mentor - Simple? Yes, however search at your own peril. Their are many wolves in sheep's clothing that will drain your bank account to tell you what you are doing wrong and sell you countless hours of material that will only tell you what you already have inside of you! There's no big secret to it, there's no hidden formula that only a select few have access. 

You could search for the lost ark or the holy grail and pay handsomely to do so. What you will find is all in which you seek, is already inside of you! A true mentor will not take from you, no... we will help you unlock all of that potential that was born in you so that you, yourself can give it away! It's a beautiful thing. What's more beautiful is that it is the key to being a successful network marketer. Not flashy ads or sales pitches, car magnets or the dreaded 2 foot rule! Not at all!

The unbeaten path is the one that is unique to your own success! 

You blaze the trail and you take others with you and the duplication of this is what is the essence of legal and ethical Network Marketing! This is what Mentoring for Free teaches and gives away to anyone who is ready to stop doing things that don't work, and learn the SKILLS necessary to be a successful business leader... that, in turn, builds many leaders along the way. Such a simple concept, yet so many people over-complicate it!

The unbeaten path, my friends, is yet to be beaten. It is yours to create...

Til Next Time,

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…

The Journey of a Network Marketer - Part 6 | The Definition of a Mentor

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…
