Money is a measuring stick (a tool) and most people subconsciously know that. That is why it scares the heck out of them. People feel that money proves they are worth little and accomplish almost nothing. Why do you think people run from the topic of money and are secretive, embarrassed and conflicted about the subject of money?
It borders the absurd how we describe the accomplishments of ordinary people. This improper characterization is bad for new people and discourages rather than keeping them going. Who in the world really ever built their business without getting the crud beat of them?
Rule 3 - Test your people who say they are committed. Many marketers cringe at this rule. "I want everyone to be comfortable," they think. "I don't want to blow anyone out." Well fine, have an underachieving group that never gets big if you don’t have the guts to ask more from your people.
The oxygen radical absorbance capacity, ORAC, is a test tube measure of a food's antioxidant state before ingestion. The method has been widely (and wildly) misused to infer antioxidant health benefits from consuming foods high in ORAC.
If you believe in your product or service, you should passionately push, but do so in a manner that does not offend in the process. This takes practice, study and time for most people.
One who is committed to a cause will not simply “go through the motions” in becoming a leader. A committed distributor will not be satisfied with just making a visit to one of his downline so he can report to his mentor that his job is “completed” or “done.” A committed distributor would not be content to merely “give” a presentation but would want to teach with passion. The result, if your leaders have the guts to ask for it, will be making a real difference in the impressionable lives of the new distributors entrusted to his or her care. It will create real leadership.
Understand the new leverage in today's network marketing. Live your story, yes live your story. Give me happiness, not ingredient lists. Give me joy, not promises of riches I don't really believe in. Give me a way to feel younger, with people that build me into greatness not scare me into submission. Give me life, don't take it away from me. Don't tell me you care about how much money I make and then threaten me if I think the opportunity is better else where. Give your people a reason to stay other than the lottery ticket chance of $10,000 a month. LIVE your story.
Without the interaction and training, your people will find other things to take up their time and energy. To turn an employee into an entrepreneur does not happen overnight, but it does and can happen.
