Trapped in Network Marketing
Here is another of the emails we have received recently that has a message so powerful I have to share it with you.
The author is an unknown MJ. If anyone knows who wrote it originally I would love to pass that information and a link to MJ’s website along to you as well. Its made a huge difference in my attitude and the actions I have taken today. I hope it does the same for you:
So I’ve been trapped in an airport…
…and while I’m waiting for the weather to clear up, I wanted to write you a quick note to pump you up about your Network Marketing business.
You see, I’m a huge fan of Network Marketing. I’ve taught (literally) hundreds of thousands of people how to become more successful in Network Marketing by improving their prospecting, their presentations and their closing.
And I LOVE teaching all of you!
And I LOVE that you love me teaching you. Heck, my first book has sold over 200,000 copies to date so I know there are a TON of satisfied students who are working hard to change their lives with my materials.
So I want to share a story that will pump you up and get you reinvigorated to go out and change your life today:
A good friend of mine who is a very successful leader in a well-known Network-Marketing company was not always so successful.
He lived in a small town outside of Cleveland and was on the verge of losing his car, his house… Bankruptcy seemed inevitable.
Lucky for him, his upline explained the price of the promise to him.
The promise was: “this business can set you free financially in one to three years.”
The price is: “to succeed, you have to face and conquer four major enemies.”
My friend (we’ll call him Jim) agreed and invited 200 friends over to his house (which was almost in foreclosure) to watch a video…
80 said NO. And that was…
Enemy #1: REJECTION
He thought “well, my upline warned me about that but I still have 120 people who are coming over.”
Guess what? Only 70 showed up. Jim had just encountered…
ENEMY #2: DECEPTION
Jim thought “no problem, my upline warned me about that… at least those 70 watched the video and will want to join my business!”
Guess what? 57 said “not interested.” Which was…
ENEMY #3: APATHY
Jim thought “well, 13 people DID sign up, that’s AWESOME!
Guess what? 12 of those ‘awesome’ people dropped out of the business shortly thereafter and that was Jim’s experience with…
ENEMY #4: ATTRITION
Because of attrition, Jim had just ONE serious person who was going to build a business in his downline.
To this day, that single distributor earns Mark over $50,000 per month.
Here’s my question to you:
If you knew that just ONE person was going to make you $50,000 per month, how many phone calls would you make to find them?
How many presentations would you show prospects?
How much time and energy is $50,000 per month from ONE PERSON worth to you?
This story is NOT at all unique in the business of Network Marketing
I know it because I’ve heard the stories from my students and seen this exact scenario play out all over the globe, every single day.
But here’s the catch:
You have your own set of odds… and you won’t know what they are until AFTER YOU’VE SUCCEEDED!
You Can either give up and assume the business doesn’t work…
OR, recognize that you are working through your own numbers
Are you willing to find out what your own set of odds are?
To your success
I do hope you enjoyed this story as much as I did. Now go out and take action to find the one person that is waiting for you to introduce them to network marketing and help them reach their dreams.
I do hope you decide to join us on our adventure.There is no telling what peaks we can climb together.
