The Bad MLM Goo-Roo Advice People Usually Follow in Network Marketing
One of the most popular pieces of advice given in MLM…
Have you heard this one?
“Treat your business like a HOBBY and you’ll get paid like a HOBBY. Treat your BUSINESS like a business and you’ll get paid like a BUSINESS.”
It’s what I heard early in my career. It sounded good so I started parroting the same message to my team.
What’s the Biggest Reason People Fail in MLM Business?
Here’s the rub…
Having your own “BUSINESS” gives you complete freedom.
You have the freedom to work whenever you want. The freedom to work however much you want.
Which, for over 90% of networkers, means you work an hour or two a week or less.
If something comes up, like a new movie you want to see, you go see the movie because your “BUSINESS” gives you the freedom to do so.
This “FREEDOM” is why over 90% fail.
WHAT’S THE REAL SECRET ON HOW TO SUCCEED IN NETWORK MARKETING?
Let me be honest with you. I didn’t become a full-time leader in network marketing because I treated my MLM business like a business with this kind of freedom.
I made it because I treated my business like a dirty little word in MLM…
A JOB! (~gasp~)
That’s right – I treated my business like a job!
You see, in a job if you only show up some of the time, what happens?
If you decide to go to the movie instead of showing up for work, what happens?
If you sleep in when you were supposed to be at work, what happens?
You get fired!
The reason most fail in MLM is because they can’t get fired.
If you have a job and you know you’ll get fired if you don’t show up, you show up!
If you have a job and you know you’ll get fired if you don’t do the work, you do the work!
Somehow though, networkers have this “dream” that they can achieve unlimited freedom, riches, and recognition by acting as if you have the freedom to do whatever you want.
My friend, it just ain’t so!
I made it and all the leaders I’ve worked with who made it did so because we showed up and treated our business like a job!
When we didn’t feel like coming in to work, we showed up.
When we were tired, we showed up.
When we didn’t feel like doing the work, we did the work.
So don’t fall victim to this whole concept of being able to treat your business like a business.
