Many people join network marketing to free themselves of a boss. The allure of owning your own business and being accountable only to yourself is very appealing. The problem is clear, however, that few people have the discipline to hold themselves accountable consistently and the dream of personal business ownership often begins to seem unrealistic. That begs the question, can we expect our downline to be accountable to mentors for what they are doing each day? For leaders to every achieve the levels of lasting profitability they desire, they must expect it.
You’re busy. Well, here’s a news flash, so is everybody else.
Most top network marketers and company executives rarely work “on” their business, instead they are always working “in” their business. They are so busy putting out fires, that they can’t put up a firewall. The problem is that to truly keep growing, you must be able to be more strategic and differentiate yourself from others consistently. You need to carve out the time to work “on” yourself, and “on” your business.
I have been a part of network marketing for more than a decade now, and it does not matter which company you are building, your pain points are usually the same. What I am about to suggest will absolutely, positively grow your revenues if you implement it properly. Your group will grow faster and with a proper foundation better than by using any other tool you can buy. It does not matter if you are a newbie, a top distributor or a company executive; if you have the discipline to implement accountability your company and downline will grow.
Like it or not, we need each other to improve and succeed. I remember when I first started in network marketing as a college student. For 9 months I had tried everything to get people involved in my group. I had almost no success. During Christmas break I decided to go back home and invite everybody I knew to an opportunity meeting.
