4 Network Marketing Tips for Success from an Industry Leader!

I am always trying to think of the best information I can share with my network marketing team to guide them to success. Anytime I can help my team, it helps them to get what they want and helps me to build my business too. The same goes for you! Take a moment to read my 4 network marketing tips for success and share them with your team.

1. Network Marketing Tips: Stay Positive and Be Grateful.

Network Marketing Tips: Stay positive, be grateful.

Take a moment and visualize the most successful network marketing leader you can. Is this person positive? Would you say they are optimistic? Do they handle their business graciously? Do they communicate with their team in a positive way? To be a good leader and network marketer, you need to STAY POSITIVE.

When you are negative, you attract negativity. Network marketing is a lot of work. You need to be ready for people to say no, not everyone is going to say yes. If you have a rough day, ditch any attitude you have at the end of the day and start the next day with optimism. The minute you believe things won’t get better…guess what? They won’t. My network marketing tips come from experience! Be positive and grateful and success will come your way.  You won’t just have a better business, you will have a better life.  There will always be bumps in the road and things to complain about.  It is up to us from moment to moment, what we choose to focus on.

2. One of the Most Important Network Marketing Tips….Talk to as Many People as You Can!

My Network Marketing Tips for Success - talk, talk, talk!

No business can exist without customers! If you aren’t talking to people, you aren’t bringing in new business. You should be talking to as many NEW people as you possibly can, whatever ways you can. I suggest setting a goal of how many people you want to reach out to daily. It really is a numbers game and you have to be persistent. I’ve had a lot of success with reaching out to people online. If you want to learn more about how I do that, check out my blog post on generating leads. I would highly recommend talking to leaders in your company. Ask them what numbers they hit daily so you get really get a sense of what you need to do to be a network marketing rockstar!  Surround yourself with the people who are making it happen.  Success really does leave clues.

3. Don’t Give Up!

Many people in the network marketing industry don’t give their business enough time. People think success should come sooner and or with less effort…Surprise! It doesn’t. If you work hard, stay positive and reach out to as many people as possible, your chance of success is very high. I have found that educating yourself on what you are up against can really help. Here are some of the obstacles I have experienced in my career.

Network Marketing Tips: Don't GIve UP!

– Your upline may quit or jump to a new company.
– You may not have a system to follow.
– At times, you won’t feel like showing one more person your opportunity.
– You will over analyze what you need to know first to get started or to restart.
– You will wonder if this is for you.

You will have people on your team that you just can’t get along with.

_ Your company will make a decision that you think you can’t get over.
– You will wonder if the time you have put in is worth the money you have made.

People will think you are crazy for staying with it.

4.  Make Sure You Give Your Business Enough Time.

I mean this both in terms of the hours you devote each day and each week but also in terms of your long term view of making this work.  Most people don’t give this enough time each week and many people don’t have a realistic view of how long it should take so they quit too soon.  What if you were 3 feet from Gold?  What if the next person you talked to was the leader, the partner you were looking for?  That is actually one of the things I love about this profession, from one day to the next your business can change dramatically.  I find it very exciting.  Make sure you carve out at least 5 hours per week to build your business.  10 hours per week is even better!  If you do that, you will get to the place where it is rolling and you want to give it even more.  Set goals for where you will be in 5 years and 10 years with your business.  Short term goals are great but when you set a longer term goal too, it helps you create that vision that pulls you forward when it gets or feels hard.

Nothing worth having ever comes easy. After many years in the network marketing industry, I know that following these network marketing tips CAN and WILL lead you to success. I have seen hundreds of men and women in our profession build successful businesses and I know you can too.  It is there for the taking.



P.S. I hope these network marketing tips are of value to you! You also may enjoy this additional training about Success Secrets From Top Team Builders.

5 Reasons to Never Give Up On Your Dreams

5 Reasons to Never Give Up on Your Dreams!

Throughout my career, there have been times when it seemed easier to quit than to keep going.   Sometimes, the amount of work it takes to get where you want to go can just seem too much.  There were times when I felt envious of my friends that were going to cocktail hours and relaxing at home watching TV when I was working.  Night after night of home parties was exhausting at times.  There is a tradeoff to get what you really want.  You have to give in on something in order to really go for what you want. Sometimes it can feel like things aren’t working out and there is nothing you can do about them. I am here to tell you, when things get hard, don’t give up! Life is about “failing” and learning. And I say “failing” in quotes, because honestly there are no real failures, just lessons.  Just a chance to do better next time.  The most successful people, fail forward.  Follow your dreams and never give up on them. Here are 5 reasons to never give up on your dreams that have helped me in times of doubt.

1. Failure is a part of life. Understanding this can be a great motivation to never give up on your dreams. If you find you are failing at certain aspects of your business, don’t panic. Failure is a learning experience. It’s how we figure out what to improve on. Some people stop dead in their tracks when pursuing their dreams because they are so afraid of failure. Don’t be one of them.  The worst thing that can happen is you find out that technique or that closing or that approach didn’t work so well.  So you fine tune it and you are better the next time.

2. You don’t want to spend your life wondering…”what if?” We only have one life to live, don’t reach the end of it wishing you had followed your dreams. If you have always wanted to be a rockstar, then pick up a guitar and start taking lessons. Your life will be better because of it. It helps to really narrow down your dreams and describe them in detail. Starting is often the hardest part! By breaking your dreams down into smaller goals, you can work your way to the top.  Think about what you would say to your kids about their dreams.  Of course, you would tell them to go for it.  Treat yourself the same way.

3. What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, as the saying goes. One way to never give up on your dreams is to keep pushing. Stay persistent and it will give you strength. Take riding a bike for example. It is one thing most of us learn to do as children (and one of the most painful, lol.) It takes us several tries and scraped knees, but at the end of the day we become stronger for it and more likely to succeed in our next venture.  Sometimes, life can throw you too many curve balls at once and you can feel like, okay, I have enough character already but it is true, it all does weave together to become our story, to be a part of our journey.  Never take for granted or assume you know what someone else has been through.  It is amazing when we really take the time to listen to an older person’s life story, how much challenge and hardship there has usually been mixed in with all the good things.  If you were 90 years old, what would you say today to your younger self?  What would you want the younger you to do?

4. It’s about the journey, not the destination. How many people do you know that went to college for one subject, but then ended up working in a totally unrelated field? When you have a dream, it can lead you to new dreams. By pursuing our dreams, we learn more about ourselves and what we really want. If we never try, we not only never know if we could do it, we lose all of the growth that happens along the way.  My very favorite part of the network marketing profession is the personal development that happens along the way.  Proof that the journey is the best part.  Achieving a rank is great, but who did you become in the process of getting there?

5. Your dreams inspire others! This is so important in the network marketing profession. By never giving up on my dream to reach one of the highest ranks in my company, I know I have inspired many people who are now very valuable team members. People want to work with leaders who inspire them. Who set the example.  When you share your dreams with your team, then they in turn are encouraged to share theirs.  You never know what sharing your story will mean to someone sitting in the audience.  Someone may come up to you years later and say that the day you spoke, they made a decision that changed their life.  Our words, our examples, our stories are so incredibly powerful.  Never take for granted how meaningful it is to dream your dreams AND to go for them.  One foot in front of the other.  People really are watching!

I hope this has give you more reason to never give up on your dreams! If you ever get discouraged or start feeling negative, use one of my favorite tricks. Take a pencil and a piece of paper and write down dreams you are thankful for that you have accomplished. Think of how you felt when you achieved that dream and let the negativity slowly melt away. Keep on dreaming and don’t forget…NEVER GIVE UP!

Being Grateful Leads to Success!

Two weeks ago in Tahiti I started reading “The Magic (The Secrets)” by Rhonda Byrne. It seemed like a great book to start this summer! In “The Magic”, Rhonda Byrne shares her life-changing knowledge of gratitude with the world and tells how to apply this knowledge in your everyday life. By having gratitude for the things in our lives, by living in the mindset of abundance, we can truly change how we think and feel. By learning how to have gratitude, we can better ourselves, our business and the lives of others.  Some of you may not believe in the law of attraction or may have even really disliked the movie The Secrets, but seriously what do you have to lose?  Some negativity?  Some stuff in your life you don’t want anyway?

How will being grateful change your life?

Being Grateful - The Magic

So how exactly does it work? Here is one way to think about it.  People either think in terms of scarcity or abundance. If you are thinking in terms of scarcity, you are always focusing on what little you have or what you don’t have. Someone in this mindset, especially in the network marketing industry, might say “I’m not going to make any money.” By focusing on this negative thought, you are making it more difficult to invite in opportunities to make money. You attract what you think. What you think actually becomes your reality.  On the other hand, if you are the type of person who thinks the glass is half full, you will not stress yourself out over what you don’t have. Instead you focus on what you do have! It is the concept that there is plenty out there and enough to spare for everybody. Being grateful open the door to new possibilities, options, alternatives, and creativity. Once these doors are opened, there is no stopping you!  My husband, Mark is the most positive, optimistic person I know.  It drives people crazy sometimes how “lucky” he is or that he is like a cat with nine lives, but the truth is because he is so incredibly positive, great things continue to happen for him.

So what can you achieve by being grateful? Anything you want! Byrne says to make a list of everything you want, but get really specific. When you accomplish something cross it off the list. If you want to travel, then write down exactly where you want to go, how you plan to get there and what you would see and do. Dream boards are a great tool for this! Sometime soon, I will share some of my dream boards.  I am still amazed at how exactly some of them have come true!  I love putting up pictures on Pinterest, it makes it so easy.

Being Grateful - Dream Board!

If you want improved relationships, write down the relationships you want to improve, and what you want them to be like. Visualize exactly what you are looking for. If you want to improve your business, sit and write out your goals and be as specific as possible. Byrne strongly urges you to find the time to maintain a list of your dreams throughout your life. Write down the little things, the big things, or what you want this moment, this month, or this year. As you think of more things add them to the list and as you receive things, cross them off the list. To make this process easier, she provides a list of categories to get you started! When you tune into the things you want, you are giving a definite direction for gratitude’s magic to work in.  I have been a major goal setter for most of my life especially the last 12 years but I am excited about creating this list with this intention.  I am going to keep this list really simple in an excel spreadsheet.

  • Health and Body
  • Career and work
  • Money
  • Relationships
  • Personal desires
  • Material things

Being grateful is an everyday task!

Being grateful can change your lfie!

With so many things going on in our lives causing us stress, it can be hard to focus on gratitude. The book explains that when you are starting to feel irritated or upset by things, this is the best time to focus on the good things you do have. If you are upset by a problem at work, focus on the thought that you have a job and you are fortunate to be employed while many others aren’t. Always seeing both sides will help you gain a better understanding and help you move from a negative mindset to a positive one. Rhonda suggests making a list of 10 blessings you have in your life and writing down exactly why you are grateful for them. Read the list out loud and say the magic words….”thank you, thank you, thank you!”  While I was at the beach today, I thanked everything that I could see – the sand, the waves, my niece swimming in the ocean, the sun, my sunglasses, the shells, etc…  You get the idea.  On our vacation to Tahiti, I admired so much how the locals thank the fish, the ocean, the sharks, their boats.  They call out thank you to what seems like random things to most of us frequently.  Between listening to them and reading about gratitude, I committed to being even more grateful and feeling more blessed more of the time!
