How many times have you heard my cousin, brother-in-law, aunt, friend of a friend “tried” Network Marketing and it doesn't work. If it didn't “work” for them, I can guarantee you it was for one of only 4 possible reasons.
Before I tell you the 4 reasons, think about that person. Are they people who are successful? Are they people who follow through on projects? If people have not ever applied themselves consistently to anything, chances are they will not apply themselves in this business either. The result is they Fail. The bad part about that is they go around “trashing” this industry and saying it “doesn't work” when in reality they are the ones who “don't work.” Here are the ONLY 4 reasons.
- They choose the wrong company. Let's face it, it doesn't matter how many times you run around the decks of the Titanic.; the ship's going down and you're going with it. Fortunately, you have my “6 Key Points in Selecting a Company” to guide you so you probably won't pick the wrong one.
- They either aren't coachable or they don't have access to a coach. Each person is the Only one in control of whether or not they are coachable. While ideally your sponsor and upline are your coaches, sometimes your sponsor is brand new and sometimes there is a personality conflict with your upline. For those truly interested in building a business, this is not a problem. They can seek other people in the company to help them or they can look online for a coach where the resources are plentiful.
- They're inconsistent or they don't treat their business like a business. This business can be built full time or part time, however, it canNOT be built Some time. Consistent action is key to success. A phone call one month and then no activity for 2 or 3 months, simply doesn't work.
- They Quit. No Activity = No Results.
Have you ever known anyone who says it “doesn't work” and when you think about them you realize they “don't work?”
