New to Network Marketing? You Need to Hear This!
Category : Network Marketing
So you’re new to Network Marketing eh? There are some things I think you need to know right off the bat. Things that are going to stretch and might even break some of you.
We’re going to start off on what may seem like a negative note but I promise it will all make sense in the end.
If you’re new to Network Marketing (30, 60, or 90 days in) you need to know the following:
Most things in life worth anything are going to be hard to obtain, hard to accomplish, or hard to go through. You got to just keep pushing.
You’re going to get rejected.
It’s just a fact. If you can’t handle rejection, then this is not the game for you.
People will avoid you.
Mostly because they are cowards and don’t want to face you or tell you how they really feel. It still amazes me how grown adults will avoid me because they don’t want to make a decision about my opportunity.
People will talk negatively about you behind your back.
This isn’t anything new. That has been happening to you your whole life. Even when you didn’t know it.
You’re going to get scolded by ignorant people.
Most people just don’t understand the concept of residual income or how Network Marketing actually works. Don’t take it personally. It’s not an attack on you but the industry itself. And it is done out of ignorance.
Your closest friends and family will probably not support you.
This isn’t going to be everyone’s experience but it happens quite often. Makes you think twice the next time your cousin, who wouldn’t watch your presentation, wants you to help him move.
People will disappoint you.
Again. Nothing new.
You will disappoint yourself.
If you aren’t used to being someone who makes mistakes, then get ready. You’ll do something wrong when it comes to your Network Marketing business, I promise. No worries, you can earn while you learn.
You will quickly learn what your flaws in life are.
If you didn’t know before you’ll know as you start to build a business in this industry. It’s ok, we all have them.
You’ll miss some important life events for your business.
This one is sad but true. As Dave Ramsey says, “Live like others won’t so one day you can live like others can’t.”
Most people who start an MLM business quit.
The numbers are a staggering 85-90% of people who start in this industry end up quitting. This should also be no surprise considering how lazy and apathetic our society has become.
You may not have any support from your upline, sponsor, or leadership.
Not everyone has a supportive upline or sponsor. This is where you need to take some initiative and hire a coach or find someone you can learn from. Remember, you are the average of the 5 people you hang around most.
Nobody will care more about your success than you do.
Powerful statement but true. If it is to be, it’s up to me.
When I first started in Network Marketing I didn’t know these things. It took me years of failing my way to success to learn them. The good news is that you get a leg up on the competition because you know them now. Just take my word for it. They’re all true even if you haven’t experienced them yet.
Now you won’t be surprised when these things happen. So many people quit this industry because something on this list will blindside them and knock them off their success train. Don’t let it be you.
The one thing I want you to get from all of this negativity is that it may be hard. It may be grueling. It may be demanding. It may be a tough, long process. But it is 100% worth it. In the end when you accomplish your ‘why’ and you’re on the other side of the tunnel, you’ll think, “I’d do it again!”
