The Journey of a Network Marketer - Part 8 | Enjoy the Process


Enjoy the Process! 




There's something that I have noticed in my years of Network Marketing and MLM... That is , most people that get involved want the money and huge downlines without going through the process. The process is the best part. It builds character and separates the weak from those that have what it takes to succeed. As mentioned in the last post, persistence is the most valuable attribute of a network marketing professional.

The process should be fun. We should be meeting new people, establishing long-lasting relationships and paving a way for those that have and will join you in your business. I am not saying that the process will always be filled with butterflies and rainbows... I am saying, enjoy it. Embrace it. 


Embrace the process?



Yes, embrace the process! You must first walk through it to receive it so that you can appreciate it. Honestly, what have you ever received out of thin air that was worth anything? 

I will wait...


Okay, so embrace the process on YOUR personal journey into network marketing success. Each day, we grow as long as we are coached. Even the best coaches, have coaches themselves. My mentor, who has almost 40 years in the network marketing industry, has a mentor that he consults with almost every day. He still embraces his journey, even though he has had and still does have uber amounts of success. 

The process is about building solid, strong relationships with people of like mind. The process is about learning about who we are, and what we are willing to do to realize our dreams.This same process is about who you can help along the way, and teach them to do the same. It's duplication of down-right caring about other people enough to give them everything you have been given.


The process I have experienced, just today...


I connected with 4 very interesting people. They each have their own set of dreams. They do share a common dream, however. They all want to do something more with their lives than sit at a desk, work in a factory, or work for anyone else for that matter. Now, of course, there is nothing wrong with anyone that chooses to do this and enjoys it. Quite a few, however, have chosen a different path... and I am meeting them 1 at a time, all over the world.

I have shared some of my story with them, and their's with me. I have let them in, and they have let me in. The relationship process... that's the process. It's an amazing thing to show someone that you are genuinely interested in what they want and they feel that, even over the ethernet cables, coax cables and the thousands of other wires and connectors there between us. 


Where will the process take us?



That's up to what we choose to do with the short amount of time we have each day. We can whine about it being hard and give up. We can take small steps into overcoming a fear. We can reach out to someone that could use our help or services. We could seriously, make a difference in someone's life... and from there there are no limits to where the process can take us.

Don't waste another minute. Use them all, enjoy the process! Be the best network marketing professional you can be!

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…
