My story is a little different than most other MLM Leaders out there, in that I did not have that 3-5 year struggle. I got started in my first network marketing program in late 2002, and in less than 6 months I was earning a respectable full time income from home.
There were a few simple reasons I believe I was able to do this… But first, there is one other thing you should know about me…
I am legally blind. I was diagnosed with a condition called retinitis pigmentosa when I was 14, the condition runs in my family. It’s a progressive condition that starts with night blindness, and then as I get older the blind spots get bigger and bigger. I stopped driving at age 23, and at this point I am unable to read on my own. I use screen reading technology to help me navigate the internet and read text etc.
So I point this out because, they say there is a 97% failure rate in network marketing, and sure we all have challenges to overcome. But if I was able to build a successful income producing business online with very low vision, then I’m sure anyone can do it IF they really have the desire.
Back in late 2002 when I got into my first program, I was earning just $900/mo on disability, and a couple extra hundred dollars per month working a part time job. So it’s not like I had a ton of money to throw at it. That income barely covered my house payment and regular living expenses, so it was a credit card expense for me to get started, as it may be for most people, but that’s what you do when you’re sick and tired of being sick and tired!
So I mentioned above there were a few things that allowed me to be successful so quickly, and I believe if anyone has these same factors in place, they too can be successful…
1. I joined a motivated “TEAM”.
There are all kinds of great opportunities online, but there are very few “teams” that really give you the support you need to succeed. And I’m NOT talking about endless phone support, because that’s NOT what creates success. It’s “lead by example” excited people who help shape your “mindset” to a point where you also “believe” that YOU can do it.
This is 99% of the battle, building up your confidence and belief that you CAN do this, and being part of a team that provides this is critical.
2. Training to expand your contact list
Very very few people have a contact list large enough to earn any significant income, so that means most people will have to reach outside the network of people they know. The internet has connected everyone, and has made it easier than ever to build a business like this online, but there are some simple strategies one must learn to keep an endless flow of new contacts in front of your opportunity.
3. A recruiting system that works
This may have been one of the biggest pieces to the puzzle for me. Even if you don’t mind spending a handful of hours every day talking with prospects, the simple fact is that most people will never make enough calls to be successful, and even if everyone did, most people aren’t able to “close” enough into their business to gain any momentum. Then there’s people like me who just hate spending all that time talking to tire kickers, I’d rather have a “system” that does this for me, lol.
Now when I say a “system that works”, I mean it. Because every MLM or affiliate company out there claims they have a “system”. But most fall horribly short when it comes to results. I’m talking about a system that once you have the contacts flowing into it, it will actually get people to pull out their credit card and join your team, even if you’ve NEVER talked to them on the phone or email, and trust me, there are only a handful of systems out there that really produce results like this.
So that’s my story in a nutshell, and the secrets to my quick success working from home!
