The Journey of a Network Marketer - Part 2

Day 8 - The journey is gaining momentum

Branding myself has proven that it isn't all about having a fancy blog or a slick looking logo. I am learning that my sincere actions and humility go much further because people want to know that you are human and not someone just typing out how-to posts on methods that you can get on thousands of other blogs on network marketing.

I spent some time talking with some people that I am currently building rapport with and am really learning the most important attribute of a network marketing professional. BEING A GOOD LISTENER. That is why you were born with 2 ears and one mouth! Do twice as much listening as you do talking.

I spent some time studying some people promoting their mlm products on social media, mainly Twitter, and I have never seen so much a ridiculous noise. I did a little side study and noticed that one young lady posted an ad about her cosmetic products every 7 minutes. Every 7 MINUTES! I cannot imagine what she expects to accomplish other than having people unfollow her. Maybe I am wrong, but I can tell you right now that is some serious overkill. I found myself wanting to lead in and ask her how it was working out for her, and I may in the next day or so... however, I wasn't quite ready for a confrontation. I was in observation mode.

I helped my wife prep her customer's meals today, and I spent much time with her and reminding myself why I decided to take on network marketing and mentoring. It was to be able to spend as much time with her and my son as possible without having to go to work every day for some corporation that would lay me off in a heartbeat if they thought it would save them a few bucks.

I practiced some of my personality assessments as I went out on some errands this afternoon and I must have been putting off some tractor beam of positive vibrations because I noticed that everyone that I engaged in conversation were smiling and really opening up. I had no agenda, just wanted to see if I could pin point their personality type. I think I did pretty good, and I would share my discoveries, but you would probably think I was crazy when I referred to people's personalities with colors. I would just have to have you read the book and then we can talk about it in more detail.

I had couple of coaching calls with some people I am working with and my mentor. I was amazed at how he cares so much about people. It's not an act. He genuinely cares about them. What's even better, is that trait is rubbing off on me. You never know what you can do to help someone until you really know what it is that they want more than anything. And quite honestly, you won't know that unless they know you really care.

It used to be about me seeing who all would sign up for my business and then get them to mimic me and listen to some CDs and poof, they are doing the business. Nah. Doesn't work that way. My sole purpose is to attract those that have either failed in network marketing, affiliate marketing, MLM, or any other type of home based business and prove to them that it was not their fault that they did not have the success they were hoping for. That's contrary to what the MLM heavy hitters want us to believe and it couldn't be any further from the truth.

I did a video test on Facebook today.

Let's be real, I have a face for radio. My wife tells me she wouldn't have married me if I was ugly, so maybe I am just being hard on myself. I do have the fear of being on camera. I think it is quite superficial and a fear that must be faced. I will continue to practice and I did notice that my message was able to bless a couple of people so... it must not have been that bad!

Before I started writing this, I thought that my day was not that productive. Now I know that it was. I was getting an education. Now, of course, I did not do much to grow my business... but maybe I did on a level in which I never really knew before.

I want to leave you with this...

You are not any label that anyone has put on you. You are perfect just the way you are. If you have failed in the past, your past is dead. Take what you learned and apply it to whatever you do now or plan to do. You are worthy to live a life of success and prosperity. You are worthy to live your life in abundance. You were born with a purpose and to reveal the purpose, you must first believe in yourself.

Please, comment below if anything you relate to anything I have written above. All questions will be answered and all comments are welcome.

Until next time,
John Wiser

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…
